Akismet (an anti spam service from Automattic) has just released another update to their plugin which is mostly composed of bug and cosmetic fixes.
However the team is hinting at an future update for WordPress fans that has been long overdue by approximately 3 years.
The Akismet plugin for WordPress isn’t the only thing we’ve been working on recently. We have a treat for Akismet users that will go live next week.
What is it you ask? I’ll give you a hint. It is an update to a feature that has stayed more or less the same since late 2008. I think you’ll really like it. Now, no more hints, you’ll just have to wait until next week when it goes live :-) (Official Akismet Blog)
So what is Akismet releasing next week? While this author would love for the team to release an auto update feature for their plugin (similar to VaultPress), they probably have something else in mind for WordPress lovers everywhere.
The team unfortunately is being tight lipped about the update, although if any one has knowledge about what they think Akismet will unveil next week, feel free to share with the rest of us in the comment section below.
