I’m really happy to say that version 1.3.1 is now available via auto update for active license holders. The biggest update in this release is the change to background index updating when editing posts. Prior to this release you would need to wait for edits to be reindexed before the page would load, but that is no longer an issue as that task has been offloaded to a background queue. This update will manifest in much quicker page reloads when making content edits. A number of other small updates have been made as well, full changelog:


  • [New] Added ability to ‘wake up’ the indexer if you feel it has stalled
  • [Fix] Fixed an issue where Custom Field weights would not be properly retrieved if there were capital letters in the key
  • [Fix] Fixed an issue with cron scheduling and management
  • [Improvement] Delta index updates are now performed in the background
  • [Improvement] Reduced latency between indexer passes
  • [Improvement] Better tracking of repeated passes on lengthy index entries
  • [Improvement] Better accommodation of potential indexer pass overlapping and in doing so reduce the liklihood of database table deadlocking
  • [Improvement] Better notifications regarding license activation
  • [Improvement] More useful debugger logging
  • [Improvement] Better index progress display after purging the index
