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).

One thing perhaps you could take into account is that there are far fewer developers for those platforms in existence, and the same goes at any company. If Mac and Linux users want to help out more to take up some of the slack, they should, but there are just not enough of them out there to keep up with the others. If I wanted to cry about lack of support for an Amiga build, I could, but again, there just aren't the developers out there. Actually I think the Mac and Linux builds are doing pretty good considering the huge lack of developers.
