New features for Drupal's Mollom module

It's been a year since our last significant changes to the Mollom module for Drupal, so we're excited to announce a major update. The most exciting new features in the new Mollom 1.11 release include:

  • Enables use of Mollom for any form; with Webform module integration almost completed
  • Includes an embedded audio CAPTCHA player that works on all browsers
  • Adds optional blacklist functionality to block spammers by text patterns and URLs
  • Adds an optional link to Mollom's privacy policy from forms protected via textual analysis
  • Adds support for serving CAPTCHAs over SSL (for Mollom Plus and Mollom Premium customers only)
  • Makes Mollom compatible with Pressflow
  • Integrates with CCK to change the position of the CAPTCHA field
  • Provides many more unit tests for continuous integration testing
  • Improves the APIs to enable module developers to better integrate with the Mollom module
  • Implements various usability improvements (e.g., better permission names and better error messages)
  • Updates several of the translations

We spent several months working on this release, and it marks our biggest upgrade to date. Upgrading requires some database updates, so remember to run update.php.

Thanks to Daniel F. Kudwien (sun), Dave Reid and Keith Smith for their contributions to the 1.11 release.

Any idea when the integration on webform will be completed?

I also think the webform integration is one of the most awaited changes.

Nice work guys!

1.11 looks good and I especially like the granularity over each form. Thanks!

Mollom Drupal module version 1.11 has an update path bug which results in the lost of all previously protected forms configuration.

See the bug report and my blog post on this.

You shouldn't update to 1.11 and wait for 1.12 which should fix this one.

What's the status of webform/mollom integration? It's been a little while since we've seen an update.

This looks like a great module. Does anyone know if there is a similar module for Joomla?
