I pushed an update this morning that updated the way messaging is sent between our servers and your browsers. For some users, that has been a bottleneck, and they will see drastic improvements in performance. (I went from getting like 20 FPS to getting 50-60 FPS, which I believe is the most Chrome will give you). This will also eliminate the ‘lag while chatting’ issue. We also upgraded the scrolling function on chat and the file editor, which should improve performance. For the file editor especially, the show all cards tab was kind of at the max Chrome could handle for number of cards and when we added more in the test environment it would lock up. Now it should perform regardless of the amount. As an added convenience bonus, the ‘chat’ text now will only flash red a few times each time a message is sent when minimized, as opposed to flashing forever until you check your messages.
Keep in mind there’s a lot of new code here, though. That means there is a possibility for new bugs, so please report anything strange that happens to firstname.lastname@example.org
WARNING — because we made changes to chat, the chat box may stop functioning if you have old versions of the chat files cached in your browser. If chat doesn’t respond, please clear browser cache or open a new incognito window.
Check it out everyone, and tell us what you think!
