Celebrating 300000 Autoptimize downloads with new release

300k-1, that isSo just now Autoptimize passed the 300000 downloads mark (6 months after reaching 200k), which feels huge to me. To celebrate I just pushed out version 1.9.3, which features -as becomes a minor release- small improvements and bugfixes. From the changelog;

  • improvement: more intelligent CDN-replacement logic, thanks Squazz for reporting and testing
  • improvement: allow strings (comments) to be excluded from HTML-optimization when comment removal is active (via API)
  • improvement: changed priority with which AO gets triggered by WordPress, solving JS not being aggregated when NextGen Galleries is active, with great help from msebald
  • improvement: extra JS exclude-strings: gist.github.com, text/html, text/template, wp-slimstat.min.js, _stq, nonce, post_id (the latter two were removed from the default “manual” exclude list on the settings-page and can be removed there if you want)
  • new in API: autoptimize_filter_html_exclude, autoptimize_filter_css_defer, autoptimize_filter_css_inline, autoptimize_filter_base_replace_cdn, autoptimize_filter_js_noptimize, autoptimize_filter_css_noptimize, autoptimize_filter_html_noptimize
  • bugfix: remove some PHP notices, as reported by dimitrov.adrian
  • bugfix: make sure HTML-optimalization does not gobble a space before a cite as proposed by ecdltf
  • bugfix: cleaning the cache did not work on non-default directories as encountered by NoahJ Champion
  • upgraded to yui compressor php port 2.4.8-4
  • added arabic translation, thanks to the ekleel team
  • tested with WordPress 4.2 beta 3 (yep, it works)

So there you have your present, no go unwrap it! Have fun! :-)

    Thanks Frank.
    I love Autoptimize and I think is a very good plugin. You’ve done an excellent job.
    Is there a date for version 2.0?
