Akismet was also updated, a plugin which, if you haven’t noticed it, should be your favorite! Akismet protects your blog from comment spam, and it’s doing it’s job if you never think about it. To check out what Akismet has blocked, go to Comments → Akismet Spam. (As of writing this post, Akismet has blocked 102 spam comments on the Smith College Blogs News & Updates blog.)
Lastly, the video embedding/linking plugin has been upgraded to Viper’s Video Quicktags 6.1.4. You’ll notice the new embed buttons in your text editor. To add other types of video or remove some of the default buttons, go to Settings → Video Quicktags.
