New version of Akismet (blog spam filter plugin) for WordPress was released few days ago. This updated plugin will filter comment spams by their types. The word “types” here means comments and trackbacks.
If you want to use this latest plugin, just download it right away. Since I have some other WordPress-powered blog to maintain, I think I’ll upgrade their Akismet plugin. It’s easy, and I believe that it’s better to have updated plugins. :)
Added later: There’s another plugin update. It’s 2.1.3 now. I have upgraded Akismet for some WordPress-powered blogs. Let’s see how it goes. Thanks Deny for the info.
