Hi folks,

as captcha problems seem to go worse, here’re some thoughts how to handle this:

From users’s view:

  • if an captcha is requested, the login process is hold
  • the user gets an window with the captcha image is asked to enter the value.
  • maybe we later can add an OCR for additional guessing.

Implementation view:

  • introduce an captcha callback interface, implemented by the GUI
  • in the login state machine we add an new state “waiting for captcha”
  • an new method is called with the captcha value and proceeds captcha-hold logins.
