The Fix is In!

Sunday February 27th, 2000

For those of you on Win9x, grab today's (2-27-00) build. The performance fix is in (the disabling of timing code) that results in a substantial speedup. For example, in today's build, Tinderbox loads in 5 seconds on my line, vs. 14.56 seconds on the 2-25-00 nightly. Reload: 3.9 seconds, vs. 14.23 seconds. Other pages show the same speedup (and you can run two builds side-by-side to see for yourself).

I kinda like splash pages. They're a "lost art" if you ask me.

But as a compromise, how about keeping the splash screen and setting up an option in the configuration to not display it on startup? Winamp does that, and it seems to work pretty well.
