This PHP script provides a very user-friendly CAPTCHA solution. You can easily embed it into your <form> generation scripts to prevent spam-bot access. It strives to be accessible and implements an arithmetic riddle as alternative for visually impaired users. It does not require cookies, but makes use of "AJAX" to give users visual feedback for solving the CAPTCHA. It grants access fuzzily (when single letters were outguessed) instead of frustrating people. And it can be customized rather easily.

    2011-03-09 - Remi Collet <> - 2.2-2.1 - switch to freefont for EPEL <= 5

    2010-07-05 - Remi Collet <> - 2.2-2 - rebuild for remi repository

    2010-06-14 - Patrick Monnerat <> 2.2-2 - Using MIT license.

    2010-05-25 - Patrick Monnerat <> 2.2-1 - New upstream release.

    2009-07-13 - Patrick Monnerat <> 2.0-3 - Depends on font directory rather than font package: this circumvents the font package name change done between F10 and F11.

    2009-06-23 - Patrick Monnerat <> 2.0-2 - Move class files to a package-specific sub-directory. - Get rid of build dependence on "ed".

    2009-06-08 - Patrick Monnerat <> 2.0-1 - Initial RPM spec file. - Patch "nodeferror" to allow predefining CAPTCHA_* constants without issuing an error at include time. - Patch "https" to detect SSL use automatically. - Patch "undef" to fix an undefined index error. - Patch "directcall" to improve direct call detection. - Patch "translatable" to make module translatable through the use of additional CAPTCHA_* defines for texts. - Font included in original package has an incompatible license: thus it is not packaged. Instead, we use a reasonable default ttf font package and directory.
