Version 5.3 of the Akismet WordPress plugin is now available

Version 5.3 of the Akismet plugin for WordPress is now available.

The updated plugin has new easy‑to‑read notices. These are the messages shown when Akismet is successfully set up or there is an issue with your install.

We have improved support for RTL (right‑to‑left) languages like Hebrew and Arabic, and have made some accessibility improvements to help users enter their API key more easily.

Users of the Fluent Forms plugin will be pleased to know that the latest version of Akismet is now compatible with Fluent Forms v5 and above.

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.
