Two days back I upgraded to WordPress 2.1 and as mentioned in my earlier post, there are lot of new features added to 2.1 release. I saw many blogger’s mentioning the “AutoSave” feature as the highlight of the release.
As far as I know “AutoSave” would be the least useful feature for regular blogger’s since many of them would use a desktop based weblog client. The most important feature that I was looking forward to was the “Efficient Database code” which was supposed to improve the page load speed of the site using WordPress.
Sites hosting WordPress rarely survive the Digg Effect and this was blamed on the inefficient database code of WordPress. However after upgrading to WordPress 2.1 I am not observing any improvement in page loads !
Anybody noticed any speed difference in WordPress 2.1 or is my hosting really that bad ?
