We are very excited to announce the release of ZenCache, an advanced WordPress caching plugin inspired by simplicity. ZenCache is the successor to Quick Cache, a very popular WordPress caching plugin that has been downloaded over 1 million times and won acclaim for its speed, simplicity, and ease of configuration.
A Brief History of ZenCache and Quick Cache
In early 2015, Quick Cache passed another milestone: 1-million downloads on WordPress.org!
But with all these new features, and several more on the horizon--CDN Integration, Memcached support, and Cache Statistics, just to name a few--we felt that Quick Cache had outgrown its name and its reputation as a 'simple' caching plugin. So, to break free from any notions of what the software might have been in the past, and so that we can continue growing and moving forward, we decided to rebrand Quick Cache as ZenCache, an advanced WordPress caching plugin inspired by simplicity.
Our primary goal has always been, and will always continue to be, building the fastest WordPress caching plugin out there, with the most straightforward and easy-to-use configuration possible. But we've also recognized a demand from the community to build in more features that will make this the best WordPress caching plugin available.
To that aim, we're launching ZenCache with a much-requested feature: CDN Integration!
New Pro Feature: CDN Integration
CDN Integration has been one of the most-requested features in Quick Cache. With the announcement and release of ZenCache we are excited to also announce the release of a new feature: Static CDN Filters. This feature allows you to serve some and/or ALL static files on your site from a CDN of your choosing.
This ZenCache Pro feature currently supports MaxCDN and Amazon CloudFront, however it will also work with many other popular CDNs.
New ZenCache Knowledge Base
Adding to the ZenCache announcement, we're also announcing a brand new ZenCache Knowledge Base where you'll find answers to common questions, tutorials for tweaking and customizing ZenCache, and other documentation that we couldn't find room to include inside the plugin itself.
