I reported a couple of releases ago that the scrolling of a data grid had improved by approx. 15% - 20%.

I can now report that RC3 vs RC2 has now reverted back as RC3 is now approx. 15% - 20% SLOWER at scrolling than RC2.

Is this because of updated text rendering, if it is then please revert the speed of text rendering to what it was? or carry out improvements.

I know my machine is somewhat old but compared to Cocoa native scrolling table and dare I say it, Xojo, this is appallingly slow.

Scrolling a table of 2000 records & 8 columns.

Cocoa/Obj C Table - 4 seconds
Xojo - 6 seconds
Livecode - 10 seconds was 8 seconds (RC2).


All the best
