- Based on user feedback, we have dropped the in-admin notice explaining the availability of the “privacy notice” option in the AKismet settings screen. The option itself is available, but after displaying the notice for the last 2 years, it is now considered a known fact.
- Updated the “Requires at least” to WP 4.6, based on recommendations from https://wp-info.org/tools/checkplugini18n.php?slug=akismet
- Moved older changelog entries to a separate file to keep the size of this readme reasonable, also based on recommendations from https://wp-info.org/tools/checkplugini18n.php?slug=akismet
Version 4.1.4 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available. It contains the following changes:
- The plugin will now only redirect to the Akismet setup screen upon plugin activation if the plugin was activated manually from within the plugin-related screens, to help users with non-standard install workflows (like WP-CLI).
- We’ve updated the layout of the initial setup screen to be more readable on small screens.
- We’ve reduced the amount of code that runs when no API key has been entered yet.
- We’ve improved the readability of the comment history entries.
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.
