ob_gzhandler(); and the like. Quick Cache will now throw PHP exceptions to warn you about this should it be an issue in your hosting environment. If you want to enable GZIP, please follow the instructions provided by Quick Cache and avoid the use of
ob_gzhandler()as this is not a recommended way to enable GZIP on any hosting platform.

/wp-content/plugins/quick-cache-en_US.mo; or in

header.phpfile, or in other places that may create a problem in the nesting order of output buffers. For instance, this release of Quick Cache resolves some incompatiblities with Headway themes for WordPress®. Please note that GZIP should be enabled at the Apache level ( i.e. with an .htaccess file ), or in PHP using
zlib.output_compression = on. Both of these methods are preferred over
ob_start("ob_gzhandler"). If you must use
ob_start("ob_gzhandler"), please make this declaration inside your
/wp-config.phpfile, and NOT inside
/header.php, as this creates a problem that Quick Cache must work around, and could ultimately prevent GZIP from working at all if you do it this way. For further details on how to enable GZIP with Quick Cache, please see the included

5xxerror codes. Quick Cache now monitors the

5xxstatus header is detected, caching is automatically disabled, as it should be.
glob()has been added to Quick Cache. In previous versions, it was impossible to pinpoint a specific cache file through Dynamic Pruning routines ( at least, not with 100% accuracy ). This was because an MD5 Version Salt could have been generated; based on arbitrary conditionals, set by the site owner. Quick Cache now stores its cache files with three MD5 hash strings, producing longer file names; but with the added benefit of improved Multisite compatibility, and improvements in optimization overall. Quick Cache can now handle dynamic pruning with 100% accuracy. Even supporting complex Multisite installations, with or without
Clear Quick Cachebutton into the WordPress® Dashboard. This makes it easy to force a "cache reset, via
ajax", without having to navigate through the Quick Cache menu for this simple task. Another great benefit to this new button, is that it works in all Dashboard views, even in a Multisite installation across different backends. If you're running a Multisite installation, you can use this new button to clear the cache for a particular site/blog in your network, without interrupting others.

ws_plugin__qcache_curl_get(), have been replaced by
c_ws_plugin__qcache_utils_urls::remote(), which makes use of
wp_remote_request()through the WP_Http class. This removes an absolute dependency on the cURL extension for PHP. This also gives Quick Cache/WordPress® the ability to decide with method of communication to use for HTTP requests; based on what the installation server has available. Note: this only affects the Auto-Cache Engine for Quick Cache, which is completely optional.

htaccess/mod_rewrite. Quick Cache has been updated to exclude all
/files/served under WordPress® MU, which is the way it should be. Requests that contain
/files/are a reference to WordPress® Media, and there is no reason, to cache, or send no-cache headers, for Media. Quick Cache now ignores all references to
/files/under WordPress® MU. This problem was not affecting all installations of WPMU, because there already are/were scans in place for Content-Type headers. However, under some CGI/FastCGI implementations, this was not getting picked on WMPU with

flock()mutex. If you're on a Cloud Computing Model ( such as the Rackspace® Cloud ), then you'll want to go with flock() unless they tell you otherwise. In all other cases we recommend the use of Semaphores over Flock because it is generally more reliable. The folks over at Rackspace® have suggested the use of flock() because of the way their Cloud handles multi-threading. In either case, flock() will be fully functional in any hosting environment, so it makes a great fallback in case you experience any problems.
