Phoronix: KDE 4.1.2 Released, Deletes Files Faster
What the... I thought Phoronix was being silly in reporting the faster file deletion. But checking the official kde site, they really do list that as a top feature!
even if that's the case, it means several things - deleting files was 32 times slower before, and/or their PR has no idea what are they doing
It really was 32 times slower as before when deleting a single file the directory contents were rechecked and repopulated. As you can imagine on directories with large numbers of files, deleting took forever if you were deleting more than one file.
Either way it isn't so much a new feature, more of a bugfix
Wow, autopanel hiding and x32 time improvement in deleting files! This thing really rocks, I can't wait to install it! Only for the sake of it, I think I'll be constantly deleting random stuff to enjoy the new benefits.
