A new security update for CommentBoxPlus is released at

It integrates full support of Pm's Captcha recipe into the form.
You need to install and enable Captcha for this to work, and include
it before commentboxplus.php.

I updated both commentboxplus.zip (for PmWiki 2.1.xx pre 2.2.0 beta)
and commentboxplus2.zip (for PmWiki 2.2.0 beta)

I thought CommentBoxPlus would not get developed any further, since it
is so much more flexible to use forms with (:input ..:) markup,
but I come to realise that Captcha support is really important.
The random number access code is fine and stops a lot of mischief,
but it is a weak defense.

I think I will change Fox form recipes over to use Captcha by default.
Fox already supports it, but the forms all rather use access code.
