- reCAPTCHA is now being used to help screen comments. This is a great feature that uses your CAPTCHA input to help digitize old books, newspapers, and other media while also blocking spam. This also allows us to accept anonymous comments now.
- We are now using Gravatar's global avatars in comment postings, which allows our commenters to finally have nice little icons next to their posts.
- Various behind-the-scenes optimizations and changes have been made that hopefully speed up the performance of the website. It should be loading faster and running smoothly.
