To paraphase the well-known CEO of a small technology company, this release is all about "Optimizations! Optimizations! Optimizations!" You'll have to insert your own mental image of me dancing around the office like a monkey boy
This release has got optimizations coming out the wazoo, incorporating a lot of what we discovered from feedback on the experimental build (many thanks to everyone who participated in that) and a few more for good measure. Awasu simply flies now, plus I've got a couple more things I want to add in future releases
Having said that, while we can do performance testing and time critical operations to the nano-second until our eyes bleed, at the end of the day it's about the user experience so feedback on your take of Awasu's performance would be appreciated.
Of course, we can't provide screenshots of Awasu running significantly faster so I made one little UI change to the status bar so that this announcement wouldn't look so drab
Have fun y'all
