This release of DAP brings a new feature that will merge two or more web resources together.
When speeding up a web site the number of HTTP-requests is the top parameter to adjust for best performance.
The top ranking Yahoo Developer performance article has "Make fewer HTTP-requests" as its number one thing to do to reduce page load time. (http://developer.yahoo.com/performance/rules.html)
Each file is separated with a pipe char |
All merged content is of course cached and you can also use the JS-Min feature to minify the scripts you are combining. GZip is applied when applicable.
I can still modify any of the merged files and simply do a hard reload (Ctrl-Shift while clicking the reload icon) and force the DAP cache to update with the latest changes.
