Ethereal Realms 4.3.2 is now out into the wild. This release is what 4.3.1 should have been, however due to some security concerns the earlier release was made in order to allow other sites to continue.
This version includes improved OpenID support for both Consumer and Client and various other cleanups and bug fixes to make the release more friendly for hosts to implement anew.
Support for version 1.1 of the OpenID server protocol is still being worked on and if everything goes according to plan should be ready in the next few weeks.
To note Ethereal Realms 4.3.0 was a development release that never saw the light of day officially. 4.3.1 is what its unreleased cousin should have been given time and without the unexpected sea time.
The 4.3.1 release features a consistent menu structure across all scripts, OpenID consumer support as well as various fixes and cleanups when interacting with external sites.
The later feature is done as a request to certain sites which have been targeted as relays. These relays in turn were used for malicious attacks and should prevent most of the problems they have experienced. Since the site is not checking for the occurrence of these connections and preventing abuse of them, this should cause a drop in the
effectivenesses and/or use of Ethereal Realms for a proxy.
OpenID support is also the latest addition to the site. It is important to note that this will only work for new registrations and is not designed for authentication against existing users since OpenID is authoritative causing problems if the identifier bans you for example.
For more information on OpenID, please see [Link] for more information. Please note that this is also a first step, with identity provider being planned for the 4.3.2 release of the code itself.
