LiteMage Cache Banner

Magento LiteMage Extension version 1.0.9 is now available for download and upgrade.

Magento LiteMage Extension is one of the component for LiteMage Cache which is installed in each Magento store to control what should and should not be cached (ESI Hole Punching).

We skipped the announcements for version 1.0.6, 1.0.7 and 1.0.8 as there’s not much improvements which are important. Version 1.0.9 is different from the previous versions though as it greatly improves LiteMage’s compatibility with other customized extensions.

If you have tried LiteMage in the past where it is incompatible with your Magento store, we highly recommend that you give it a try again with version 1.0.9.
