Akismet WordPress Plugin 3.1.7

Version 3.1.7 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.

This update fixes a bug that caused Akismet’s “Remove author URL” feature to be incompatible with WordPress 4.4, and it improves the post-activation process for those using screen readers or other assistive devices.

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.
