  • md5sum of all the content of webapp/js, webapp/css and webapp/images automatically. You change something it change the entire version
  • recompiled smartsprites to work without conflicts with google-collections stable version
  • you can ignore regex based resources from being minified with something like
uiperformance.excludedMinifiedJs = [/.+jquery.+/, /.+robots.+/]
  • new function in taglib to embebed css minified with embebedcss and uiperformance.embebedcss flag to on/off
  • you can use another baseurl if you wan't to use CDN implementing something like:
uiperformance.staticBaseUrlGenerator = {HttpServletRequest request ->
    return "http:////"
  • You can serve older procesed static resources configuring a list of war path (files or urls, it may take a while downloading the urls). Something like:
uiperformance.olderwars = ["http://mymaven/content/repositories/myrepo/myproyect/myapp/1.0.0/myapp-1.0.0.war"]
  • also it serves 404 without cachecontrol, permits an unformatted url for background images in a css and it ill do your laundry.
It conflicts with ui-performance
