Changes to dasBlog - Watch for Weirdness

I've just made some changes to my personal branch of dasBlog including:

  • Referral Blacklist - This should cleanup my referrers and make my life easier.
  • Fully integrated CAPTCHA - You won't lose your post if you goof the CAPTCHA. MaxS will feel better.
  • Performance re-work of RSS/Atom - I've added internal caching to the syndication service. You the end-user won't see a change, but my ISP and I will see big change in CPU. DasBlog continues to honor the HTTP Headers ETag, If-Modified-Since and returns 304s as appropriate.
  • A number of small caching and perf improvements - Meant to please my ISP who has noticed my CPU and bandwidth characteristics were degrading as the amount of content I've got archived and hits have grown.

I say again, ORCSWeb.com kicks bootay. I highly recommend them, their service is without equal.

Let me know if you see any weird stuff due to these changes. Omar will likely put these changes into dasBlog 1.7 along with his many improvements. Clemens may also test them out. We shall see.
