Version 4.0.3 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin Is Now Available

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_commentmeta table 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_count action 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.

  1. I accidentally bought it and canceled my subscription. Now it’s been half a month. I haven’t got a refund yet. It’s really disappointing.
