Lighthouse just got an update – 1.4 – bringing more orange juice, this time with bits.

= 1.4 =
* FEATURE: Added widget removal
* FEATURE: Added content filtering removal
* FEATURE: Added various other actions disabling
* FEATURE: Added new helper (template part caching)

This update adds caching to template parts, namely the get_template_part() function, adds (optional) widget removal for native WordPress widgets and removes some actions by default.

Get Lighthouse!

Even though it’s a bit early, I have some thoughts on version 2.0:

  1. A better dashboard, summarizing what happens with the site and adding more speed measurements
  2. A more compact tab structure, grouping the options in a more intuitive manner
  3. Experimental caching support

That’s it for now. Enjoy.
