It will be a huge patch release this time. Let me first start with the new features list...
NEW: Search contains the word "search" now as default.
NEW: Following rules apply now to the form field "Name": If a user is logged in, he can not change his name If a guest is around, he can change his name only if the admin settings "name field: No Yes Is the field name read only?" is set to NO
NEW: Avoid logged in user to rate up and down his own comments (he will never be able to rate them). But logged in user can rate his comments as guest!
NEW: Auto moderation function: this do not auto publish automatically comments based on external conditions. done: check if one url is in comment or title future: check if comment contains at least one or more bad words.
NEW: Use a lot of new CSS tags.
NEW: Replying to an existing comment also now Quote automatically the text, not only the title.
And the never ending list of bugs corrected...
BUG: Edit comment CSS file was no more available...
BUG: Administrator notification was always disabled during save of configuration settings.
BUG: if "allow anonymous entry" then comment form is visible. If "allow anonymous entry" = false then only logged in user see the comment form

BUG: Replying to a comment with special characters in the title was not working, tested in Firefox and IE
BUG: Back end: Settings/InputForm/name field = Yes. BUT... name field in comment input form is still editable.
Translations, new keys are in each language file.
Dear translations team, Ive duplicated new English keys in other files. (Hungarian, german)
Anti Spamming measures OpenComment do not need Captcha (com_securityimages component) or Hashcash (com_Hashcash). And this because OpenComment use internally a sort of HASHCASH. This should be more than enough against spammers, If it ever failed, I will switch Captcha on in less than a day. I simply do not want to force users resolving a Captcha when I can propose something different.
Here also a freemind mindmap with what should be in that release.
Concerning the development, I must also says, that it is not a long term objective for me to try to make OpenComment a commercial grade application, at least not alone ;-). If You want a more complex/easy to use commenting system, maybe You'll have to look at OpenWordpress or any equivalent. comments powered by Disqus
I've decide to join the team of !JoomlaComment and help Alain and Daniel continuing the development. Right now I will try to reduce the spamming attacks I've encountered in the last few days (250 comments entered by a bot) First step is to review the code in order to avoid replaying attacks by request forgery (saving an attack vector with a specially hand crafted URL), After that I will join my effort to Alain and Daniel and try to …
