This new release provides a workaround for possible connectivity issues while crawling, improved robots.txt handling, fixes for user reported bugs and some minor memory and runtime optimizations.

All users of Aimy Sitemap are encouraged to update to the new version!

Network Connectivity

With this release Aimy Sitemap handles network connectivity issues more robustly. Previously a crawling process had been aborted whenever the network connection of the user's browser to the Joomla! backend was temporarily unavailable.

Now Aimy Sitemap retries to connect and take up the crawl at the last position for a couple of times.

Improved robots.txt Handling

Aimy Sitemap's robots.txt algorithm has been updated to behave more like the one used by Googlebot and Bingbot.

Joomla! 3.1 and 3.2 Support

The previous version of Aimy Sitemap had a some compatibility issues with Joomla! 3.1 and 3.2 versions. These issues have been fixed.

Minor optimizations

The crawling frontend's JavaScript code has been optimized to reduce memory consumption on the user's browser. In addition, some runtime optimizations have been implemented in the crawler backend, which make crawling a bit faster.

As usual, thanks to all users who reported issues and suggested new features. We will start adding new features to Aimy Sitemap soon!
