We’ve just updated the Akismet WordPress plugin to version 2.5.3. There are three changes in this update:
- Specify the license is GPL v2 or later
- Fix a bug that could result in orphaned commentmeta entries
- Include hotfix for WordPress 3.0.5 filter issue
For those that have experienced issues with your commentmeta table growing in size, this update addresses that by making sure we don’t create orphaned rows in the table.
If you have automatic updates configured you’ll see the update in your dashboard soon. You can also download the zip file and manually install the update.
