With the list of new functionalities below...

NEW: No more data save in SESSION storage, I have to go that path since
  • Joomla! 1.5 use a more complex session scheme than Joomla! 1.0.X and create issue with my component and/or I create Joomla! session issues :-)
  • All files imageGenerator.php can be called in an URL and has no access to Joomla framework (having all drawback of an Ajax entry point without using Ajax)
A new database table __SecurityImagesSession now store Securityimages private and public key and simulate a session storage. The cleanup is done by date and number of access. This will solve hopefully all issues with administrator panel login issues and allow me, as soon as I have back ported these changes in Joomla! 1.5 branch, to deliver Securityimages 5.0 for Joomla! 1.5

NEW: A new menu entry (sorry but I wont rewrite the administrator panel with Ajax/changing layout for Joomla! 1.0.x version): Check Your System, currently
  • Report if you are able to create images at all (GD library detected), output jpeg, png or gif
  • Output an image for each plugin
securityimages.4.2.3.checkSystem.gif

NEW
: Component tested with the strongest PHP error reporting E_ALL (see php.ini), All errors and warnings (doesn't include E_STRICT) are now corrected in my code before being shipped.

In order to increase quality, your feedback is valuable to me, in the meantime I will try to improve quality by using PHPUnit from http://www.phpunit.de/ and a WEB test case tool
