The comments feature supports all options to prevent spam submissions of beeing released and an easy to use backend for managing comments.
Additional Options to fight spam
There are new options to fight online spam in this release.
The option "Check DNS MX Entry of email addresses" checks the mx dns entry of the domain of an E-Mail address. This ensures that the E-Mail domain really exists. However this method can not determine if an user exists on the given mail server.
The option "Reject Requests From Bots" checks if the client identifies itself as a bot or crawler by checking it's user agent. Messages sent by crawlers will get rejected.
Assign multiple groups to users
In addition to the primary group it's now possible to assign multiple secondary groups to a user. The permission arrays will be merged. If any of the group assigned to a user has a permission checked then the user owns that permissions.
