b8 development goes on

There has been no release of b8, my PHP implemented statistical spam filter, for quite a while now. But b8’s not dead! It does it’s work day for day, here and probably on many other homepages. Just to say it: development goes on!

At the moment, I’m working on improvements on the database. The goal is to abstact the database layer in a way so that SQL backends can actually use multiple columns to store the data and don’t have to emulate the Berekely DB behaviour with only key-value-storage. Additionally, the infamous lastseen parameter will be finally kicked out, as it never has been used for anything and just eats computing time and database space.

As this is a one-man project, it will probably take me some more time until the new b8 0.6 release will be done. But I’m working on it :-)
