Akismet: Version 4.0.1 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin Is Now Available

Akismet: Version 4.0.1 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin Is Now Available

Version 4.0.1 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.

4.0.1 contains a few helpful changes:

  • We fixed a bug that could prevent some sites from connecting Akismet using an existing Jetpack connection.
  • We added some code to ensure that any pending Akismet-related events are unscheduled if (heaven forbid) the plugin is deactivated.
  • Some of the Akismet JavaScript is now run asynchronously in order to increase the speed with which your pages will appear to load.

Pretty good, right?  To upgrade, visit the Updates page of your WordPress dashboard and follow the instructions. If you need to download the plugin zip file directly, links to all versions are available in the WordPress plugins directory.
