A Milestone for Sitecore Intranet Portal
This patch contains a number of small bug fixes, but more importantly it includes several significant performance improvements. The initial release wasn't really that slow except for a few specific scenarios, but it just didn't fly like the new one does (although there is always room for more optimizations, so expect even better performance in the future).
I've been quite involved in this release, so I look forward to hearing the reactions. Not that it is a huge patch, and we're already preparing yet another patch (and another and another) with improvements, bug fixes and new features.
My thanks go out to everyone in the team who has helped develop, test, coordinate, document and release this patch. And not least to our trusty partners and customers, who have notified us about several issues that we hadn't discovered ourselves yet.
By the way, we have an ambition of making the installation of SIP patches a smoother process in the future. But I'll save that for another blog entry (or maybe simply for the release of the next patch) so that I don't risk promising more than I can hold :o)
