Thank you very much for your reports. It's disappointing to hear that the 2.1 queries are slower than 2.0.6 (even though I thought I had only made them faster) and hope to improve this situation quickly.
I would like to know, if any of you could try this out, whether it's the tags + categories that slow things down so much or the fulltext title + body checks that are so slow. If any of you could try turning off title + body or turn off tags + categories and get any sense of the performance, I would appreciate that.
I'm also curious about the RSS being slow, even if the RSS display is turned off... (@michaelpark) there is a quick check (
get_option) which runs when an RSS feed item is constructed, but that should be a very quick transaction... are you seeing any YARPP output even though you chose to turn off the RSS auto display option?
Thank you all in advance for your continued support and reports!
