    unfortunately, I identified this plugin as slowing down my backend - at least the plugins overview page.
    I disabled all plugins one by one - Retina 2x is the last in the list :)
    With all, the page was loading and loading awesome slow.
    When deactivated Retina 2x, it just worked fine with all the others.
    Also, I was wondering about the backend message for an plugin update available, but nothing was indicated in the plugin list. After deactivating Retina 2x also this update message vanished.

    Best Regards

    You mean ONLY the "plugins" page is affected?

    I don't really understand your issue with the update message, how can it be related to the WP Retina 2x plugin?

    I run the plugin on websites with more than 5,000 images and it doesn't affect the performance at all (close to 0 on the client side, and a bit on the admin but not much, I really worked on the performance part - I can make it better but at this point it is not really required).

    Hi Jordy,

    I have only 10 images yet there on the dev machine :) so it is not any images issue I think. I just was wondering and researching, why the plugin list page is waiting soo long for a response. in fact, it vanished when I deactivated the last plugin in the list, and unfortunately it was yours - nothing personally ;-)
    And as well the message about one update available disappeared - not lying.
    Sorry, but that is the fact, but I don't know the tech details about why it happened. May I do an un/reinstall completly and look, if it helps.

    Best regards

    Actually the plugin has nothing weird or special in its code and wouldn't affect the plugins page in a certain way. I just think it's a current state of your WordPress at some point of time, and it's probably not reproductible (or maybe it would affect or appear that is another plugin). So I think it would be good to reinstall it :)
