Version 3.3.4 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.
3.3.4 has a few fixes and enhancements that should make everyone’s lives better:
- URL previews in the WordPress admin will now begin preloading when the cursor moves near the link so they appear faster once you move your mouse over the link.
- When a comment is caught by both the Comment Blacklist and Akismet, Akismet will now leave it in Trash instead of moving it out of Trash and into Spam.
- A bug has been fixed that was preventing a notice from being shown when a site’s firewall was preventing it from connecting to Akismet’s servers.
- Akismet will no longer log all of its debug information unless a new constant (
AKISMET_DEBUG) is also enabled, even if
WP_DEBUG_LOGare both enabled.
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.
