EWWW Image Optimizer 3.6.0

EWWW Image Optimizer was updated to version 3.6.0, from version 3.5.1. Changelog:

  • In an effort to simplify the settings page and make room for new features, many settings have been “hidden” and/or rearranged. It is my hope that this will make it easier for new users to get going with EWWW IO.
  • added: ability to override any boolean/integer options by defining constant of the same name
  • added: debug information included automatically with help beacon requests when debugging is enabled
  • added: use wp_raise_memory_limit (WP 4.6+) to avoid memory issues
  • added: use wp_is_ini_value_changeable (WP 4.6+) to avoid errors when raising max_execution_time
  • added: notice to use cloud version on Kinsta sites
  • changed: Better Lossless and Maximum Lossless have been combined for PNG images with more intelligent usage of advpng on the API
  • changed: resize settings moved to new tab
  • changed: various options have been removed from the settings page, but are still available via constants, see removals
