Really Simple SSL 3.1.2

Really Simple SSL 3.1.2. will be released shortly. It includes the following improvements:

  • Tweak: added nicer looking checkboxes
    It just looks better ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Tweak: .well-known/acme-challenge/ is excluded from .htaccess https:// redirect
    Ironically, updates of SSL certificates often cannot run over https. This prevents the update from being redirected to https.
  • Tweak: implemented transients for functions that use curl/wp_remote_get()
    On some servers, if the wp_remote_get responded very slow, this could cause slow loading pages while the “go ahead, activate SSL” was not clicked yet. Functions that use the wp_remote_get are the the certificate check, the .htaccess redirect test, and the mixed content fixer detection.
  • Tweak: improved mixed content fixer detection by making a distinction between “no response”, and actually not being able to find the marker.

The latest version can be downloaded here:ย https://github.com/rlankhorst/really-simple-ssl. We have extensively tested this update, any user feedback is more than welcome!
