Plugin Updates – AdSense Click-Fraud Monitoring, Akismet , ARYO Activity Log and BackUpWordPress

Several Minor Updates Across The Plugin Board This Week

Even the simplest of updates can be important.  This week there have been several updates for various plugins and some are much more important then others.

The plugin we consider a mandatory update should be the Akismet plugin. Any time a security plugin is updated or new security features roll out, those should be done right away.

For the more technically oriented users, consider that Apache (.htaccess) has been being updated quite a bit this year. You can check out the most recent updates to Apache 2.4 here. We have not encountered any issues with our htaccess files or coding as of yet, but will make notes of any problems we encounter so that we may pass any fixes on to you.
