In #289 we made Comet Cache Pro compatible with WordPress Automatic Background Updates. Now we just need an option to enables this by default, and allows a site owner to disable it (instead of requiring a filter). The WordPress Codex page explains how auto_update_plugin can be filtered to achieve this.


<h3>Automatic Background Updates</h3>
<input type="radio" name="" value="1" checked="checked" id=""> On&nbsp;&nbsp;
<input type="radio" name="" value="0" id=""> Off <br>
<p>Set this to ON to allow Comet Cache Pro to download and install bug fixes and security updates automatically in the background. Requires a valid license key.</p>

Noting that this feature should be disabled by default, so that site owners can then opt-in to automatic updates if they so choose.

Noting that I went with a dropdown menu for consistency with the rest of Comet Cache.

Phing release of v161221 with the following changes:
- **Bug Fix:** Improving PHP OPcache detection. Now considering the INI option `opcache.restrict_api`. Comet Cache is now smart enough to avoid generating the PHP Warning: _PHP Warning: Zend OPcache API is restricted by "restrict_api" configuration directive_. See [Issue #733](#733).
- **New Feature (Pro): Mobile Mode.** This release adds a new feature that is designed to improve compatibility with Adaptive themes for mobile devices. To learn more, please see: **Dashboard → Comet Cache Pro → Plugin Options → Mobile Mode**. See also: [Issue #471](#471).
- **Enhancement: Auto-Clearing Author Page Cache.** This release makes Comet Cache smart enough to detect when a user is deleted (or removed from a child blog in a Network), at which time the Author page for that user will be cleared from the cache so it can be regenerated automatically. See [Issue #304](#304).
- **Enhancement: Multibyte Compatibility.** This release improves support for WordPress Permalinks that contain UTF-8 symbols (or emojis) in them. More specifically, this release adds the `/u` flag to all `preg_*()` calls in cache clearing routines that generate cache paths from Watered-Down Regex patterns entered by a site owner. See: [Issue #611](#611).
- **Enhancement: Widget Change Detection.** Comet Cache can now detect when **Appearance → Widgets** are added/edited/removed, and Comet Cache will automatically clear the cache so that your site remains up-to-date. See [Issue #411](#411).
- **Enhancement (Pro): Static CDN Filters and `srcset`.** This release enhances Static CDN Filters in Comet Cache Pro. Static CDN Filters are now smart enough to filter all image sources included in an `srcset=""` attribute that is generated by WordPress. See [Issue #660](#660). If you'd like to learn more about `srcset=""`, see [this article at](
- **Enhancement (Pro): Automatic Background Updates.** It is now possible to enable automatic background updates that occur quietly in the background whenever new features, bug fixes, or security issues are addressed by our developers. See: **Dashboard → Comet Cache Pro → Config. Options → Update Credentials**. See also: [Issue #827](#827).
- **Enhancement (Pro): HTML Compressor + Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP).** Updated to the latest available release of the HTML Compressor (v161208) with improved support for [Accelerated Mobile Pages]( See: [Issue #695](#695). See also: [HTML Compressor v161208 changelog](
- **Enhancement (Pro): HTML Compressor / AMP Compatibility.** Improved compatibility with [Accelerated Mobile Pages]( There is a new HTML Compressor option that is enabled by default and it makes Comet Cache smart enough to auto-detect and selectively disable portions of the HTML Compressor that are incompatible with the AMP spec; i.e., routines that are not necessary when serving APMd pages. In short, if the URI being compressed ends with `/amp/`, or the document contains a top-level `<html ⚡>` tag (`<html amp>` is accepted as well), then features which are incompatible with [Accelerated Mobile Pages]( will be disabled accordingly.
- **Compatibility:** Avoid deprecated `wp_get_sites()` and use `get_sites()` instead. See [Issue #848](#848).
- **Documentation:** Added Watered-Down Regex documentation notes to the inline documentation (in the software) about the use of `^` and `$` in some places where these special characters are not fully supported. Also adding the same notes to the [Watered-Down Regex KB Article]( See also: [Issue #611](#611).
