Any tips, techniques or other data for 3.1 config in order to get a speed-up?

So the problem-solving long-waited v3.1 will be 25% slower than current version!?

Would like to use your CMS, but this scares me. I've also checked a lot of the sites in Showcase section and this one too (these forums), they all seem to load slower than average sites/forums.

Please optimize the next version, no need for other changes/features.

tazzydemon make sure you're running an opcode cache or memcache or something to maximize performance. Using caching you can get SS down to about ~200ms to render a page.

I may have been wrong about performance fixes, I'm running on master which will actually be 3.2.. Not sure where 3.1 performance wise is. Might do a profile this evening.

Specific fix is making the config system merging logic simpler but this was not going to be completely backwards compatible as it involved making some static configuration immutable.

I do run APC as standard but its often a mess to get it right if you have a modest cloud instance and are trying to save memory. I have a few dozen 2.4+ sites running plus a couple of new 3.1 (will change to master). I also (god forbid) have some Joomla sites too as the clients demand them. They can be so hungry it's not true.

Perhaps I will have to get Rimu hosting to upgrade me. (Shameless plug there)!

So what's the change in 3.2 you are referring to - oh and how do I get ImageMagick going, then I don't have to integrate coppermine or some other stupid gallery program so my clients can upload PDFs and get thumbnails!

I'd like to reply again just to correct myself, this is NOT the case.

3.1 is in fact faster on other sites I've profiled, my issue was site-specific.

This works for me:

if (!file_exists($outputPNG))
exec("/usr/bin/convert \"{$strPDF}[0]\" -colorspace RGB -geometry 160x240 \"$outputPNG\"");
