JotCache 2.0 – New level of Joomla page caching PrintE-mail
Monday, 12 September 2011 17:13

JotCache is advanced solution for page caching in Joomla framework. This solution replaces standard System-Cache plugin and it usually works along enabled Global Cache Settings. It consists from two major parts - JotCache plugin performing functions related to file caching and JotCache component allowing cache management. Additionally can be used JotCache Cron for periodical cache cleaning (garbage collection of expired cached items). For moderate loaded web sites is available in plugin as standard feature autoclean function.

Development of JotCache started more as one year ago with first version coming out in June 2010. At first thought as experimental proof-of-concept next versions of JotCache were used on different web sites some of them very large and heavy loaded with good results and administrators perceiving. Users feedback allowed to extend and steady further develop its functions. More as 15 thousands downloads were reached till now. It is time to enhance JotCache for better performance and management.

New JotCache ver.2.0 is fully redesigned page caching solution coming from base of previous versions with these major features :

  • Reworked cache management with faster opening on larger web sites – the cached files are presented with cached page titles and links, added more informations about cached page (browser type, language, non-routed query string), implemented items ordering, changed information about date/time of caching (incl. indication of expired or no more existing cache files)
  • Better exclusion of selected pages from page caching
  • Upgraded plugin functions for more powerfull autoclean (garbage collection) activity and browser caching.
  • New common installer for one-step installation of JotCache component and plugin in upgrade mode

I like to express thanks to all contributors, testers and users giving valuable feedback to achieve this new stage of cache solution. Download of installation file you can find here.
Inside installation file you can find short readme.txt and on this site is also published full text of JotCache 2.0 Help.

Some years ago I found Joomla Content Management System (CMS) - fascinating open-source world-wide project as very good and solid basis for creating and maintaining of radio amateur web sites. I am very glad that number of friends, clubs and organisations utilize the power of Joomla CMS. Last time I recognized new fresh impressive pages of OM9OT Old-Timers Club SARA Web Site or OK2IEN Web Pages. For more interesting examples see my list of Selected Joomla Ham Web Sites .
