This build contains the original Mozilla Firebird 0.6.1 milestone along with the additional patches for bugs 210229 and 212556. Please note that while this build is optimized for the Pentium III processor and above, it will run just fine on any Pentium or above processor. If you're interested, you can download it here."

gregoryk, can you run startup and new window performance tests on this build and compare the times with the 0.6.1 release builds? I'm curious if it's actually faster than the official release.

I've seen several people commenting about the improvements to performance that can be gained by optimizing for a particular CPU architecture. Has anyone done any comparisons between one of these "optimized" builds and an equivalent not-optimized build? I'm not interested in anecdotal evidence but rather, real hard data gathered with tools like
