Bye 2014, it was nice knowing ya!

this used to be an animated gif, click to see itWith 2014 finally behind us, we can start dwelling on that past as of yesterday. These are some of my 2014 facts & figures:

About my blog:

My WordPress plugins:

  • Autoptimize
    • 2 major and 7 minor releases
    • 141324 downloads, bringing the total to 241650
    • answered lots of questions and feedback on the support-forum, allowing me to improve both the code and the FAQ.
    • 2015 will bring Autoptimize 2.0 (fixing the occasional WSOD & the cache-size problem) and Autoptimize Power-Ups (extensions for professional & power-users)
  • WP YouTube Lyte:
    • 2 major and 2 minor releases
    • 36507 downloads, now totalling 210285
    • 2015 will see continued improvements and WP YouTube Lyte Power-Ups (you guessed it, extensions for professional & power-users)
  • WP DoNotTrack:
    • 2 minor releases
    • 4312 downloads, now 12009 total
    • 2015 really should see a 1.0 release, which will finally include CSP-enforced protection.

Bye 2014, it was nice knowing ya, but I’m off enjoying 2015 now!

Autoptimize minor update and beyond

I just released an update to Autoptimize, bumping the version to 1.9.2. Main new features;

  • New: support for alternative cache-directory and file-prefix as requested by a.o. Jassi Bacha, Cluster666 and Baris Unver.
  • Improvement: hard-exclude all linked-data json objects (script type=application/ld+json)
  • Improvement: several filters added to the API, e.g. to alter optimized HTML, CSS or JS
  • Some bugfixes
  • Swedish translations updated & Ukrainian added, courtesy of Zanatoly of SebWeo.com

I’m already thinking about version 2.0 (which should fix the 2 big issues some people face; exploding cache size due to page-specific inline code & the rare but nasty white screen of death due to CSS minification issues) and about some powerful new features that could extend Autoptimize for professionals and power-users in need of something more. 2015 is going to be great, hope you guys & girls will be part of that!

Anyway, enjoy the end-of-year festivities and above all, have fun & share some of the happiness!
