v1.2.1 released

The next bunch of new features, improvements, and fixes with 1.2.1 version.

  • Added option 'Cache engine'. With this option you can choose between files / Memcached / APC and some other caching engines to completely speed HTML files caching.
  • Memcached and APC added to supported engines. There are not so many caching subsystems available, and we are going to cover them all this summer.
  • Added CDN sync tool (via FTP). Now you can simply synchronize all static resources via FTP with your CDN server (and check their status).
  • Added warning about huge resources consumption. A number of new messages (after some user reports) were added - now you can see how efficiently WEBO Site SpeedUp works for your website, and what possible troubles can occur with its performance on optimization.
  • Improved data:URI behavior.
  • Improved server side caching.
  • Improved support for Windows Server / IIS.
  • Improved files' merging.
  • Added native support for Magento.
  • Added Urdu localization.
  • Minor fixes.

You can update your WEBO Site SpeedUp right now or download the latest package (also for corporate users).

Server-side caching engine

We are happy to announce a brand new server caching engine for WEBO Site SpeedUp.

This caching engine is available for several WEBO Site SpeedUp native plugins like WordPress and CS-Cart and it can be very helpful for many heavily loaded websites.

Here is the brief description.

  • Formerly, with WEBO Site SpeedUp plugin you could only cache HTML documents on a certain static site sections, or for certain browsers with specific cookies, etc. Now you are able to provide cached pages to almost every user on every page of your website.
  • Server caching feature is now implemented on a system level. This makes possible for WEBO Site SpeedUp to deliver pages for your website visitors up to 4 times faster than before, and even faster than with many other caching solutions available.
  • Cache is automatically updated when needed. For example, when someone someone creates a new blog entry or comments it, all related pages are updated in a cache automatically and without your attention.
  • And of course, along with the new caching feature all familiar WEBO Site SpeedUp features are fully available.

And this is just the beginning. Right now system level server caching already works for WordPress and CS-Cart WEBO Site SpeedUp plugins. But stay tuned, as we are already working on similar solutions for Joomla and some other systems.
