Seems to work considerably faster than before. Part of it may be that  
the server is faster this early in the morning but scrolling and all  
actions seem to be faster. I see that the server listed in the status  
bar is now an active link. That's very nice since it will make it easy  
to see if you've got an active link. Thanks!

Where are the Release Notes?

Finally, something that happened to occur with 0.5. I was trying to  
get some information about setting up the server in preferences for  
someone (now you see why I appreciate the active link for the server  
in 0.6) and the server was very slow. I opened the preference window,  
got the information I needed and tried to close it but it seemed to  
lock up. All this time the server wasn't responding. I assume that  
this lock up will time out after a while but it was a bit confounding.

Good Luck,
