I’ve been using the latest beta branch for some time now, and I kid you not, there has been some serious improvements to speeeeeed !
I haven’t been too grumpy about Meteor’s reload times lately, or even for the past year or so. We have a fairly large app and there’s only so much you can do when it’s JS, but damn does it feel snappy with the latest improvements!
release-1.8.1 branch started plopping out release candidates two days ago, I highly recommend running
meteor update --release 1.8.1-rc.1 and taking her out for a spin. The RCs seem to be running real smooth
