leave html5.js be; aggregating it breaks HTML5-support in older IE versions
make sure the IE-specific CSS-files are loaded after the normal aggregated CSS
ensure both JPG and JPEG files are taken into account for conversion of background-images to data-uri’s
correct a bug that resulted in aggregated files not having a hash in them (having one or more autoptimize_.php can break things)
stop autoptimizing for logged in users (which broke the WordPress 3.5 admin bar again)
Based on feedback on the WordPress support forums, others were still using Autoptimize as well, needing bug-fixes and support so I contacted Turl a couple of days ago and proposed that I join his one-man team. He agreed, so I’ll be taking over Autoptimize as of now. The first update (1.4.1) with the fixes listed above will be pushed to SVN soon. I’ll provide support on the wordpress.org forums as well and release new bugfix-versions if needed. New features or other major updates however, are not on the roadmap (yet). I wouldn’t want my own children, WP YouTube Lyte and WP Donottrack, to feel neglected, now would I?

Moreover, I was honored to see Yoast’s Video SEO plugin has support for WP YouTube Lyte and equally proud to be able to decline a commercial proposal to have my plugin add a link next to each and every LYTE player.
WP DoNotTrack 2012 proved a fruitful year for my 3rd party tracking filtering plugin:
