Bump Akismet External - 5.0 Edition

Reported by: kraftbj's profile kraftbj Owned by: kraftbj's profile kraftbj

Severity: normal Version: 5.1

See #41327, #40002, etc

Akismet 4.0.3 has been released so the external needs to bumped to:

Once complete, the ticket can be closed and I'll reopen this one as needed for the duration of the 5.0 cycle.

This should be applied to both trunk and the 4.9 branch for points until 5.0 ships. I'll mark it with the latest 4.9.x milestone to ensure a point doesn't ship before it gets bumped.

Resetting to 5.0 milestone, please do bump it back to 4.9.x when new releases are made though :)

There will be another release tomorrow to pick up some GDPR feedback. I'm closing this for now and will reopen when that ships to avoid the extra work.

There will be a 4.0.8 in about a week.

We're expecting Akismet to need no more than a monthly release for the foreseeable future now that GDPR-related things have calmed down. Pinging @dd32 as my regular committer who is comfortable with externals :) Thanks!

  • Milestone changed from 4.9.7 to 4.9.8

4.9.7 has been released, moving to next milestone.

Akismet is aiming to have one release before 4.9.8 Beta 1 to ensure there isn't a release that missed 4.9.8.

I've confirmed with the Akismet team that what is on deck isn't ready for release, so we're holding at 4.0.8 for the 4.9.8 release.

@dd32 Could you bump the external on trunk and the 4.9 branch?

Moving milestone back to 5.0 for tracking purposes. We're all set for 4.9.8.

Noting that in addition to /trunk (which is now the 5.1 milestone) and the 4.9 branch any Akismet version bumps will also be required for the 5.0 branch

#14 @kraftbj

Akismet 4.1 has shipped, which is the last expected version before WP 5.0 drops.

Need to akismet for the 5.0 branch (and trunk when it reopens).

#15 @dd32

Updated Akismet to 4.1 on The 4.9+5.0 branches and trunk.
