- Akismet have launched a new plugin – version 2.0. It has some great new features which should enhance it’s performance including a search feature (something I’ve been testing the last few days – it’s great), the ability to to discard spam on old posts, a spam counter widget (so you can brag about how much spam you get), recheck moderation queue and a lot more (most of which is too technical for my little head at this time of night). All I know is that if it improves Akismet’s performance then I’m happy!
