Today, we’re happy to announce new releases of WPtouch Pro (version 4.3.10) and WPtouch Free (4.3.13)! With this release, WPtouch core (and themes) are faster than they’ve ever been!
This was a release focused on speed. Our goal is to deliver the best mobile solution for your WordPress site and, to date, our focus on page speed has revolved around our proprietary server-side technology that optimizes your WordPress site for mobile devices before your users download the content.
With this release, we took a much-needed look at client-side enhancements to page speed. We conducted a front-end speed audit of the core plugin and each of the themes to identify where we could improve the performance and load time of every site using WPtouch.
Speed audit in hand, our growing development team buckled down and took the necessary steps towards making the plugin and themes faster than ever. And this is just the beginning! We have a few more ideas and updates planned that will continue to increase the speed of your mobile website.
If you run into any issues with this update, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for paid support (available to active license holders). If you are a user of the free plugin, post in the WordPress plugin forums for free support. Please note that we will do our best to help out free plugin users, but there are certain issues that we can only assist with if you have an active pro license.
Enjoy the new release!
