NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Premium Changelog

New in Version 1.1.2

Maintenance and user experience update

1. Tested compatible with WordPress 3.5
2. Latest Google-hosted jQuery 1.8.3 to match new WP version
3. New admin notifications to assist with NextGEN installation
4. Improvements to Optimizer's automatic Fancybox installation

This release brings us up to date with WordPress 3.5, and features a number of additions and refinements to improve user experience. These include new admin notifications to assist users who don't have the required NextGEN Gallery plugin installed and activated, new step-by-step installation instructions via the WordPress admin (to ensure the correct file ownership and permissions are set) and improvements to Optimizer's automatic Fancybox installation.

New in Version 1.1.1

Improved messaging and security

1. Checks to ensure jQuery isn't being deregistered
2. Includes blank index.php files for enhanced security

This release features a clever regex that detects and alerts you if your theme (or child-theme) is deregistering jQuery (and not re-registering it with a CDN version)...which causes Fancybox to break. Additionally, security is enhanced with the addition of blank index.php files in each folder, preventing bots from scanning your server's directory tree.

New in Version 1.1

Major release

1. Fancybox title now included in image height calculations
2. New options: WordPress's included jQuery **or** go Google-hosted
3. Support for the Thickbox effect
4. Support for the Shutter effect
5. Support for JW Image Rotator slideshow integration
6. Support for AJAX pagination on [imagebrowser id=x] (reqs. Shutter)
7. Fancybox gets extra fancy...auto-resizes when the browser is resized

This first major release for Optimizer sees a number of new additions and features... Fancybox now includes space for a single-line title in its image height calculations, vastly improving vertical alignment of the lightbox. Also, Optimizer now lets you choose between using WordPress's included jQuery (for greater compatibility), or the Google-hosted version (for faster page loads). Support for the Thickbox and Shutter effects has also been added thanks to user requests.

On top of this, the Premium version now includes AJAX pagination when using Shutter on the [imagebrowser id=x] shortcode, supports the JW Image Rotator for slideshows and features a super-fancy, auto-resize function that resizes Fancybox when the browser window is resized!

A brief note for the community...
In order to provide the same level of email and forum support, as well as continued development of this plugin, the donation amount for NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Premium will now be set at $15 (as of the latest major release v1.1). I do very much appreciate the many feature requests sent in by the growing community of users, and this will help enable me to bring you many more moving forward. Thank you all for your understanding.

New in Version 1.0.8

Improved compatibility

1. Tested fully-compatible with the latest WordPress 3.4
2. Improved compatibility with other plugins and themes
3. Display fix for Fancybox when no title is available
4. Latest jQuery 1.7.2

This version adds the jQuery.noConflict(); method for improved compatibility with plugins and themes using other javascript libraries/frameworks including script.aculo.us, Prototype and MooTools. It also includes a fix for Fancybox/NextGEN Gallery integration where a small white line would appear underneath the lightbox when no title was set.

New in Version 1.0.7

Maintenance update

This version enhances compatibility with other plugins and includes a few minor improvements.

New in Version 1.0.6

Fully-automated Fancybox installation!

This version features completely automated Fancybox integration with NextGEN Gallery, so now you can be up and running even faster.

Initial release...version 1.0.5

Precision shortcode matching!

This version uses WordPress's native get_shortcode_regex() function for EXACT shortcode matching, ensuring scripts and styles don't load unexpectedly unless the FULL shortcode is present. If WordPress doesn't detect a shortcode, neither do we!

Also, this update introduces the new NextGEN Gallery Optimizer Premium version, which adds support for ALL TEN of NextGen's shortcodes, support for the [show as slideshow] link, the removal of NextGEN's version number comment and more.
