Quick public service announcement; Autoptimize 2.9 is almost ready to be released but given the planned release of WordPress 5.8 (July 20th) and the risk of support requests mixing up WordPress core update related issues with the Autoptimize update related issues, Autoptimize 2.9 will probably be released one week after WordPress 5.8, so on or around Tuesday 27th.
If you’re eager to use 2.9 (with better image optimization, improved JS optimization and per page/ post Autoptimize settings) you can off course download the beta here immediately.
Autoptimize 2.3.3 was just released. It is a minor release with the following minor improvements & fixes:
- improvement: updated to latest version of Filamentgroup’s loadCSS
- improvement: by default exclude
wp-content/uploads from CSS optimization (Divi, Avada & possibly others store page-specific CSS there)
- bugfix: stop double try/catch-blocks
- misc. bugfixes (see GitHub commit log)
This is (supposed to be) the last minor release of the 2.3 branch, 2.4 is a major change with some big under-the-hood and functional changes. That new version has been in the works for some months already and if you’re up for it you can install by simply downloading this zip-file from GitHub. The GitHub version will also auto-update thanks to the great Plugin Update Checker library.
