Pukka 1.7.2: Faster, better, stronger

Posted in

I've just released Pukka 1.7.2, an update which focuses solely on performance and speed. I studied the slowest points of the application and honed and sharpened those routines, making Pukka much faster at the things that it does most often in the background. And I studied the application launch and optimized the slowest parts of that as well.

I'm very happy to push out a free update that focuses so intently on making the application faster to launch and faster to use. So please, go grab it now and enjoy!

Update: I forgot to mention that I also made a change in the underlying URL fetching library used by Pukka on Leopard. Some time ago, I had moved to an alternate library due to stability issues on the then just-released Leopard release of OS X. Those days seem to be long gone, so I've reverted to the standard Cocoa way of doing this now for slightly better performance, but more importantly, better adherence to any system-wide proxy settings that you have set in your networking preferences. As always, you can keep up with the full release notes of each Pukka release in your RSS reader by following the appcast.
