This update was publicly released on January 7th 2011.
- Added vastly more contextual help and explanations to all test results.
- Added explanatory axes for most graphs.
- Polished many existing results to use clearer labels, data types, explanations based on user feedback.
- Added new option to “Spider very slowly” (under Site Settings > Pages to test). When enabled, this drastically reduces the maximum speed of the spider, allowing for some sites which reject being spidered to be tested.
- Added completely new help system and documentation totally rewritten.
- When printing/exporting a report without a Summary page, the title of the report is now included.
- Added support for Google Indonesia.
- Improved descriptions for the Amount of content test, especially for sites with a medium amount of content.
- Added a “Total words” count for the Amount of content test.
- Significant speed improvements when visiting the “Test website” screen, or starting a new test.
- Fixed bug where the Spelling test could potentially claim a spelling error but not explain where it is.
- Fixed bug where Visual interest test would show a reflection for one screenshot, breaking layout, for some screen resolutions.
- Fixed bug where some pie charts would show incorrect proportions for very large values.
- Fixed bug where the Desired keywords under the Content keywords test could be hidden if the screen was squeezed thin, or when printing / exporting to PDF.
- Fixed bug where Content keywords test would always include the name of the current website for some upgraded installations (esp. WebScan).
- Fixed bug where exporting to Word would display an import error in Word, in many cases preventing the import from working.
- Fixed some typos in various areas.
- Modified schedule for background cleanup processing (less intrusive, logs persist longer).
- Removed superfluous detail for the Design variations test.
- Increased design variation sensitivity slightly. More variations will be detected.
- To reduce confusion, when a score does not count towards a Summary Score because it is conditionally informational, it no longer appears under that Summary Score.
- Revised description for Alternative text test to include effect on search engines as well as on Accessibility.
- Made the Amount of content test more intelligent, particularly for websites with a high percentage of empty pages (e.g. those using frames). Generally these websites will score higher than before if they have substantial content in other areas.
- The Marketing Score now includes the Analytics test.
- Removed superfluous “Density” measure on Amount of content test.
