    NEW: Using Akismet PHP 5 engine version 0.4 (author Alex Potsides http://www.achingbrain.net/)

    • Performance - changed HTTP version from 1.1 to 1.0 (with thanks to Jan De Poorter).
    • Performance - No longer issues a separate HTTP request to check validity of the API key with every instantiation.
    • Added a new public method 'isKeyValid' to manually check validity of the API key passed to the constructor.
    • The method 'isCommentSpam' (rather than the constructor) will now throw an exception if the API key is invalid.
    • Tidied up internal structure a bit.

  • Askimet for Joomla!

    Askimet is a service hosted at www.askimet.com which use traind bayesian filters and other measure to categorize comments as spam or not spam. User can find  the Akismet plug-in for WordPress or one of the third party Akismet implementations

    What is bad  is that there is currently no Joomla! implementation for Askimet, until now! I will deliver shortly a new component, which act  one more time as a framework, and let 3rd party components integrate Askimet in their code. OpenComment will be the first Joomla! plugin to use that new possibility!

    Askimet statistics:

    • 543,878,439 spams caught so far
    • 1,544,713 so far today
    • 94% of all comments are spam
  • Askimet4Joomla! released

    This is the component  which integrate Askimet for Joomla!

    This component wouldn't exist without these developer, as I use their portable PHP engine:
