EWWW Image Optimizer

Reduce image sizes in WordPress including NextGEN, GRAND FlAGallery, FooGallery and more using lossless/lossy methods and image format conversion.

2.9.3

  • fixed: sorry, missed a session locking operation (manual optimize)

2.9.2

  • changed: priority level of Alt WebP Rewriting so that pages do not get un-minified after Autoptimize runs
  • fixed: async requests for parallel optimization had an empty user agent
  • fixed: uploads broken because start_session() locks all async processes

2.9.1

  • changed: full paths are not POSTed to avoid Local File Inclusion blocks put in place by various security plugins (Wordfence & Shield)
  • fixed: reduced number of database queries during parallel optimization
  • fixed: undefined methods for BFI thumb editor class
  • added: detect Shield's Lock to Location feature and disable background/parallel operations

2.9.0

  • added: parallel optimization for Media uploads (original and resizes are done concurrently), turn off under Advanced if it affects site performance
  • added: allow resize dimensions to be filtered: https://ewww.io/2016/07/05/changing-the-dimensions-for-resizing-images/
  • changed: deferred (background) optimization is now the normal mode of operation as it runs instantly, and no longer relies on wp_cron
  • changed: scheduled optimization uses new background processing to allow it to run longer, and resume quicker
  • changed: webp .htaccess rules removed when plugin is deleted
  • changed: JPG quality setting applies to conversion AND image editing (but not regular optimization), so that you can override the WP default of 82
  • changed: API license status check is faster, as results are cached while checking for updates in the background
  • fixed: .htaccess rules for webp inserted properly for sub-directory installs
  • fixed: .jpe files properly detected as image/jpeg when fetching from CDN or during folder-scanning operations
  • fixed: images generated by NextGEN are properly optimized with latest version
  • fixed: deprecated class constructors for NextGEN, Nextcellent, and FlaGallery classes (potential white screen with PHP 7)
  • fixed: basic uploader for FlaGallery broken due to missing class
  • fixed: images uploaded with WPML Media active are now resized, with better detection for newly uploaded images

2.8.5

  • fixed: previous security hardening used boolval(), which is not present on PHP < 5.5

2.8.4

  • security: remote command execution, please update immediately

2.8.3

  • fixed: tool status not shown when tool could not be found, prevents pngout installation
  • fixed: notice when checking nonce lifetime during scheduled optimization
  • fixed: multi-site not saving cloud optimization levels
  • fixed: settings page requiring a refresh to display properly after inserting/removing an API key

2.8.2

  • added: ability to use ImageMagick's 'convert' tool to convert images on Windows
  • fixed: WebP images regenerated during scheduled optimization when PNG optimization disabled
  • fixed: Windows executable checks obey 'use system tools' option
  • fixed: settings page checks for tools which have already been tested and known missing

2.8.1

  • added: kudos to Cache Enabler plugin from KeyCDN for adding WebP rewrite support to work with images generated by EWWW I.O.
  • fixed: untranslatable string for resize setting description
  • fixed: Resize Media Images was not applying to the Media->Add New menu item
  • fixed: Bulk Optimize counted webp images as valid resizes

2.8.0

  • added: resizing for uploaded images, set max width and height and optionally resize all existing images
  • added: retina derivative for resized original is generated if original was at least twice the size of the max dimensions (WP Retina 2x Pro only)
  • fixed: warnings for file_exists in Alt WebP function when open_basedir restriction is in effect
  • removed: disable automatic optimization, use deferred optimization instead
  • removed: disable optipng (it still functions, just seeing if anyone actually needs that option anymore)
  • changed: consolidated various settings into optimization levels for each file format, and removed Cloud tab
