Version 4.1.2 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available. It contains the following changes:

  • We’ve reduced the number of API requests made by the plugin when attempting to verify the API key.
  • We’re now including additional data in the pingback pre-check API request to help make stats more accurate.
  • We fixed a bug that was enabling the “Check for Spam” button when no comments were eligible to be checked.
  • We’ve improved Akismet’s AMP compatibility.

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.
