In version 2.24 of Photonic I had introduced a change to the behaviour for handling the
filter attribute for Google Photos. The change I had made would internally make calls to Google so that all listed albums would get fetched. I have generally been against such automated calls, as they tend to hit API rate limit issues. As if to validate my resistance to making this change, quite a few users reported that they ran into issues.
To remedy this I released version 2.25, which keeps this “chaining” behaviour off by default but lets you turn it on via Photonic → Settings → Google Photos → Google Photos settings → Chain queries.
Version 2.25 also puts some optimization in place for regular admin pages, which seemed to be getting all the Photonic scripts loaded.
