How do you handle the poor performance of LC 7?

Hi Peter

OK I tried to migrate to LC8  but have given up until the next version comes

At the moment I'm doing apps for iOS and Android need to be able to build
for them. A while ago I allowed Xcode to upgrade to 6.3.2 which LC7 was OK
with, LC8 not so much. As regards Android I can build and install apps made
with LC8 but they can't open on my device

If I was working on stuff that didn't need mobile I would move up, but think
it's sensible for me to wait until your next release :(

Kind regards
