better than 0.7.0 for me personally (win7/i7/8gb). faster load. market swapping with everything loading up within 10 seconds at worst, 3-5 seconds on most tries.
i was never affected adversely by glitches in prior versions, so i can't comment on any of those fixes. it's just getting smoother with each new version for me!
So it is true!
I thought it was a miracle.
I upgraded to 0.8 from 0.7 and left my laptop unattended....
when I came back I saw it floating up in the air.... for good 3 sec.
I thought to myself "It cannot be true, you do not believe in miracles..."
but it is true,
it did indeed levitate
due to the pure force that 0.8.0 put in it.
so much faster, so much stronger than poor old 0.7.0!
