We’ve just deployed a new Fedora Account System to production. This release just pulls a few new features that didn’t quite make the 0.8.10 release:
- Ian Cole (icole) Added a feature to allow for email address to be used instead of login name for logging in. Because of the way we do authentication, this means that email addresses can also be used on the other applications on admin.fedoraproject.org as well.
- Pierre-Yves Chibon (pingou) Implemented an audio captcha for people signing up for a new account. It generates a wav file that gets downloaded to your computer that you can listen to and then type in the proper answer to the captcha.
- Adam M. Dutko (addutko) Standardized some of the errors that can be returned from our JSON API.
- Our translation team pointed out a few areas where we weren’t loading translations correctly and I fixed them. Look forward to more complete translations in the future.
That’s it for this minor update.
/me goes to play with the audio captcha some more.
