First of all; Happy holidays, all the best for 2015!!
- 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
- Bugfix: set Autoptimize priority back from 11 to 2 (as previously) to avoid some pages not being optimized (thanks to CaveatLector for investigating & reporting)
- Bugfix (in YUI-CSS-compressor-PHP-port): don't convert bools to percentages in rotate3D-transforms (cfr. bugreport on Github)
- Bugfix: background images with a space in the path didn't load, reported by johnh10.
- Bugfix: SVG image with fill:url broken after CSS optimization as reported by Tkama
- Updated translation for Swedish, new translation for Ukrainian by Zanatoly of SebWeo.com
- Updated readme.txt
- Confirmed working with WordPress 4.1
- "Inline and defer CSS" allows one to specify which "above the fold CSS" should be inlined, while the normal optimized CSS is deferred.
- Inlined Base64-encoded background Images will now be cached as well and the threshold for inlining these images has been bumped up to 4096 bytes (from 2560).
- Separate cache-directories for CSS and JS in /wp-content/cache/autoptimize, which should result in faster cache pruning (and in some cases possibly faster serving of individual aggregated files).
- CSS is now added before the -tag, JS before (and after when forced in head). This can be overridden in the API.
- Some usability improvements of the administration-page
- Multiple hooks added to the API a.o. filters to not aggregate inline CSS or JS and filters to aggregate but not minify CSS or JS.
- Updated translations for Dutch, French, German, Persian and Polish and new translations for Brazilian Portuguese (thanks to Leonardo Antonioli) and Turkish (kudo's Baris Unver)
- Multiple bugfixes & improvements
- Tested with WordPress 4.0 rc3
- Updated to lastest version of CSS minification component
- Improvement: for multi-sites the cache is now written to seperate directories, avoiding one site to clean out the cache for the entire installation. Code contributed by Joern Lund, kudo's Joern!!
- Improvement: add WordPress plugin header to autoptimize_helper.php_example to make it easier to enable it as a module
- Improvement: nonce and post_id are added to default configuration for JS exclusion
- Improvement: explicitely exclude wp-admin from being Autoptimized
- Bugfix: plupload.min.js, syntaxhighlighter and "adsbygoogle" are excluded from JS aggregation.
- Bugfix: avoid double closing body-tags when Autoptimize adds JS to HTML as reported by Can
- Bugfix: make .htaccess compatible with both Apache 2.2 and 2.4 (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/feature-request-support-generating-htaccess-files-for-apache-24?replies=3)
- Bugfix: code in inline JS (or CSS) can be wrapped inside HTML-comments, but these got removed since 1.8.2 as part of a bugfix.
- Improvement: more graceful failure when minifier classes exist but method does not, based on bug-report by Franck160
- Improvement: deferred CSS is also outputted in noscript-tags
- Improvement: differentiate between Apache version in .htaccess file as suggested by iMadalin
- Improvement: also aggregate protocol-less CSS/JS URI's (as suggested by Ross)
- Improvement: disable autoptimization based on parameter in querystring (for debugging)
- Bugfix: some CSS-imports were not being aggregated/ minified
- Bugfix: add CSS before to avoid breakage when title includes other attributes (e.g. itemscope)
- Tested with WordPress 3.9 (beta 1)
- Updates in FAQ
- bugfix: CSS in conditional comments was not excluded from aggregation as reported by Rolf and bottapress
- improvement: remove cache + options on uninstall as requested by Gingerbreadmen
- improvement: set .htaccess to allow PHP execution in wp-content/cache/autoptimize when saving optimized files as PHP, as suggested by (David Mottershead of bermuda4u.com)[http://www.bermuda4u.com/] but forbid PHP execution when saving aggregated script/css as static files (except for multisite).
- bugfix: avoid Yoast SEO sitemaps going blank (due optimization of Yoast's dynamically built XML/XSL) as reported by Vance Hallman and Armand Hadife. More info on this issue can be found on my blog.
- smaller changes to readme.txt
- improvement: extra checks in CSS @import-handling + move import rules to top of CSS if not imported successfully, based a.o. on bug reports by ozum and by Peter Stolwijk
- improvement: check if JS and CSS minifier classes exist and only load if they don't to avoid possible conflicts with other themes or plugins that already loaded minifiers
- tested and approved for WordPress 3.8 (beta1)
- New: disable autoptimizatoin by putting part of your HTML, JS or CSS in between noptimize-tags, e.g.;
<!--noptimize--><script>alert('this will not get autoptimized');</script><!--/noptimize-->

- fixed stupid typo in config/delayed.php which broke things badly (april fools-wise); strpos instead of str_pos as reported by Takahiro.
- Added support for ETag and LastModified (essentially for a better pagespeed score, as the files are explicitely cacheable for 1 year)
- Autoptimizing for logged in users is enabled again
- Autoptimize now creates an index.html in wp-content/cache/autoptimize to prevent snooping (as proposed by Chris)
