Akismet WordPress Plugin 3.1.2

Version 3.1.2 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.

This update includes seventeen fixes and enhancements; they’re summarized in the changelog (or for all of the details, the revision log), but notably, Akismet will be easier to set up, use less space in your database, and be better protected against security holes — specifically ones in other plugins.

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.
