You do not need to know the version just post a screenshot of the problem, whatever version it is. We didn't name a specific version so why would we mean a specific version?

It's absolutely useless to post in this topic without giving a screenshot of the problematic CAPTCHA.

Overlap is supposed to be like the phpBB2 captcha, correct?

Ok, the problem with Entropy is when you start using line noise.

You don't really notice that I after the R at all.

Shape gives me the same thing as Overlap...

Personally, I think 3D Bitmap is extremely easy to read 90% of the time(the one big problem is with S and 5). Only the one from phpBB2 is easier IMO.

Cells is really bad all around. Much harder for someone to read than anything else. I believe it would be quite easy for someone to make a bot capable of reading that.

Stencil looks like it has a lot of potential, but as of the beta release it is extremely difficult to know what is happening(especially with no instructions!)

Composite is easy to read, but it would be extremely easy to make a bot able to read it as well. Probably easier than the phpBB2 style captcha that was made for 3.

That's pretty bad. I assume that it's JR*something*IC9.
I'm not sure what that this is that looks like the upper-half of a ?

EDIT: After zooming in to 400%, i figured out it was a 2. So then, JR2IC9.
So then the I is after the 2, not after the R.

I would say it's 1JRI2IC9 :)

You would mean a specific version as to avoid posting errors already corrected in CVS.

Sorry I asked, I won't be asking again, then, and instead use the bugtracker; I have a lot of bugs in the Beta1 I got installed. A lot. *shrug*

I don't know of any changes to the Captcha since the beta was released, though I might have missed some.

I can get a CVS copy and use winmerge to check it if you would like. :)

Well if you know they are fixed you don't have to report them, if you're unsure that's right, just report them, if they are fixed already we will close them, better report a bug twice or three times than never :)

There have been some captcha changes in CVS since Beta1, not the least of which includes a new CAPTCHA Settings admin panel.
