We have been working on version 4.2.1 of WordPress OAuth Server and are just about ready to release it into the wild. In this release, we wanted to focus on speeding up load times by optimizing the codebase used to authenticate a request. We did this by creating a new proxy functionally to check all forms of tokens without loading the entire OAuth 2.0 Server. The result was load times up to 8x faster!
Updates to the logic for a Bearer Token, Access Token, and JWT authentication for both built-in resource server as well as the WP REST API have made a huge change in how the plugin is loaded.
Other than the update to how the WordPress OAuth Server determines users, we have added a couple of new actions and filters for JWT and authentication.
Documentation will reflect the changes made.
