We are moving to Git Issues for bug tracking in future releases. During transition, content will be in both tools. If you'd like to file a new bug, please create an issue.

Replace built-in CAPTCHA support with reCAPTCHA, which provides an audio CAPTCHA for users with vision disabilities + supports digitization of public works.
Add to WAL. Make available in OJS, OCS, and Harvester.
Just a quick note here. When this is implemented, it would be good to allow JMs etc. to be able to choose between reCaptcha and the current one. I've actually noticed far fewer successful spam registrations using the default captcha on the forum, as opposed to the reCaptcha option.
Added to OJS:
Still needs to be added to OCS.
Introduces new config parameters that need to be added to the captcha section in config.inc.php if upgrading an existing installation:
; Whether to use reCaptcha instead of default Captcha
recaptcha = off
; Public key for reCaptcha (see http://www.google.com/recaptcha)
; recaptcha_public_key = your_public_key
; Private key for reCaptcha (see http://www.google.com/recaptcha)
; recaptcha_private_key = your_private_key
Added to OCS:
Still need to port to OHS.
OHS does not include public user registration. Not porting.
