Version 4.0.3 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.
4.0.3 contains a few helpful changes:
- Adds a new scheduled task to clear out old Akismet entries in the
wp_commentmetatable that no longer have corresponding comments in
wp_comments. This should help reduce Akismet’s database usage for some users.
- Adds a new
akismet_batch_delete_countaction so developers can optionally take action when Akismet comment data is cleaned up.
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.
