Version 4.1.8 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin is Now Available

Version 4.1.8 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available. It contains the following changes:

  • Removal of a deprecated jQuery function.
  • A fix for a bug causing some data to be excluded from API calls when marking a comment as spam or not-spam.  This should improve spam detection accuracy.

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.
