reCAPTCHA for FlatPress version 1.1

Version 1.1 of the reCaptcha for FlatPress plugin is now available.

The changes have been inspired by the work of Roberto Rossi and in response to the Flatpress Comment Center plugin.

Flatpress Comment Center runs at a priority of 5, whilst the original reCaptcha for FlatPress plugin ran at 10. This meant that even if the captcha entry failed the comment would be accepted by Flatpress Comment Center. Version 1.1 raises the priority of reCaptcha fro FlatPress to 4, thus allowing a failed captcha to stop comments from being logged.

The plugin will no longer attempt captcha verification if previous filters, such as Akismet, have marked the comment as invalid.

The four standard reCAPTCHA themes and eight supported languages are now available.

Additional languages or changes to the text displayed by the reCAPTCHA can be made via the language file of the plugin. See comments in the lang\lang.en-us.php file for further details.
