Help Test The Next Version of Akismet!

The next version of Akismet is coming soon. Take it for a spin early!
Akismet, the spam-filtering software by Automattic, is gearing up for the big version 3.0 and use your help. For some folks who report bugs or give solid feedback, they’re going to throw in some exclusive, limited edition swag too. Full details on their blog.

Giving the release candidate a spin on this site, I’m excited for the upgrade. While there are other features that will make life easier for folks getting started, the plugin provides nice stats on how effective it has been in saving you time.

I’ve been using the free, personal account for years now. Seeing the stats like this and how much spam it has saved me from having to manually moderate, I think I may have to reconsider ignoring the upgrade prompts.
