We finally managed to locate and fix the reported performance issues of 1.5, so now it should be at least similar to the performance of 1.4.7. We also fixed a number of bugs (as seen in the snapshot release last week), and a couple more. The 1.5.1 patch notes are a bit simplified, though...
- Fixed a bunch of bugs
- Improved performance
- Notable: Falling blocks no longer glitch one step
- Notable: White stitching between blocks should be less frequent
- Notable: Crash on Mac OS X on "OpenGL Function Not Supported"
- Notable: Unable to place paintings
We intend to publish the release on Thursday, unless something nasty happens, or Searge of MCP asks us to wait for them to catch up.
