Version 4.1 of the Akismet WordPress Plugin Is Now Available

Version 4.1 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available and contains the following changes:

  • We added a WP-CLI method for retrieving Akismet stats: wp akismet stats
  • Akismet now hooks into the new “Personal Data Eraser” functionality from WordPress 4.9.6 to ensure that any personal data stored by Akismet is erased when requested.
  • We’ve updated the plugin to more quickly clear outdated alert messages.

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.
