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).

Why put a pref when its already a command line. Its easy to set the icons properties (In windows) to send the command line option -quiet.

On the other hand, if it were a pref , it would never come up (no matter how you ran the program)... but I'm not even sure the prefs have been read by the time the splash screen is displayed.
