Cruciforum v1.11

I’ve fixed various things in Cruciforum and released a 1.11 version. In particular, there’s now Akismet integration to prevent spam. You can tell Cruciforum about your Akismet API key and then it’ll check new posts. There’s also a handful of other bugs fixed (see the bug list for details). Next step is OpenID integration. I’m pretty confused by where the current state of play of OpenID is, though; since cruciforum doesn’t have a database or maintain much state, it’d have to be what was originally called a “dumb” consumer. I don’t know whether you’re still allowed to be a dumb consumer, though, and I also don’t know which PHP OpenID library fits in best with Cruciforum’s (a) fairly minimal requirements and (b) single-file nature (which rules out the JanRain library, which is about forty files). The simple class at PHPClasses looks OK, but is it? Suggestions welcomed.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
