Varnish-Joomla package 1.3.0 released, with cache purging

The new Varnish-Joomla package 1.3.0 is now available. New features include:

  • Purging cache when saving articles
  • Support for more Joomla! extensions and static file types
  • Improved cache hit rate because of Accept-Encoding normalization
  • Support for Piwik and CloudFlare
  • More debugging headers
The biggest news is cache purging - this means that the moment you save your article, it is visible to your visitors. Behind the curtains, our Joomla plugin connects to your Varnish and tells it to remove cached copies of the saved page, pages of categories it belongs to, and the front page. This feature is optional, you don't need to install the plugin if this is not the desired behavior.
The package has support for Joomla 2.5.4+, 3.0.x and 3.1.x, just like the previous version.
There is good news for our existing customers: the patch to Joomla core didn't change, all features are implemented with the Varnish VCL file and an easily installable Joomla plugin.
As usually, the upgrade is free, contact us to receive the latest package if you've already purchased it.
