Akismet version in 2.0.7 package (5 posts)

    In addition to the six other files changed, the 2.0.7 zip includes a totally different version of the Akismet plugin (labled 1.8.1) than the 2.0.6 package did (1.2.1).

    Does anybody know what the story is with Akismet? I'm not sure if that version should have been part of the 2.0.7 release or not...

    Typically, any part of the WordPress install which has been updated since the last release would go into the new version. That would include plugins like Akismet.

    Since the current version of the plugin is 1.8.1, it would be strange not to find it updated in WP.

    You're probably right - part of my confusion came when I checked the download page at Akismet.com. It says: "The latest version of the plugin is 1.2.1.".

    But the version that is actually downloaded is the 1.8.1 included in the WP 2.0.7 package.

    Maybe it's just me, but that IS a bit confusing, is it not?

    Sure. But then it's not the first time (nor will it be the last) someone updated a piece of software but forgot to update the documentation as well.

    Anyway, there's always:

    I added that to the fact that Akismet wasn't mentioned in the 2.0.7 release as one of the files that had changed.

    Sorry for asking for what seemed to me to be a rather obvious question, one for which I should apparently have divined the answer.

    Consider the issue resolved.
