    • Add support for custom login/register paths
    • Add reCAPTCHA before the submit field in comment form for WordPress 4.2 or higher
    • Use a lower priority when filter the comment_form_defaults filter hook so reCAPTCHA can still be added to themes that filter it as well

    • Show the captcha to all users (including admins) by default
    • Contact Form 7:
      • The shortcode [bwp-recaptcha] has been deprecated, use [recaptcha recaptcha-xxx] instead.
      • bwp-recaptcha will continue to work for Contact Form 7 prior to version 4.1 (last supported is 4.0.3). bwprecaptcha and bwp_recaptcha will still work with version 4.1+, so you won't have to manually update any form if you're using them.

    • Layerthemes.com has become an official sponsor for BWP Plugins!
  • Bugs fixed
