Hi Aaron...

I noticed the last few days a considerable slow down with the editors.  When ever I enter an editor (forums, news) it takes almost 2 minutes to load and the editor icons load one at a time.  Very strange behavior.

This occures on every PC I have tried it on.  I have 3 at home and 2 at work.

Alright, turns out the editor was ignoring a directive to load externalresources from the location I was telling it to, instead loading itfrom a compiled resource.  The compiled resource is a good ideaand simplifies deployment, but doesn't hold up too well under any kindof load.  So, I just made some changes in the code that force theeditor to load from the external resources (setting properties directlyinstead of relying upon the attributes in the .ASPX and .ASCX tags,which it was ignoring), and it should improve the performancedramatically.

I'm going to push this within the next 15 minutes as a hotfix, since Ineed to give at least a little warning.  Ideally I'd like to waituntil one of the relatively slower times, but waiting that long for theeditor to load is kinda ... er... crippling to the site.

Thanks for reporting this!

Heya Crowd --

Looks like switching out the resource loading for the editor improved performance, but only reducedthe instances of lock-ups in IE.  From the forums belonging to thecontrol vendor -- not my post, but others -- it looks like there's somekind of memory leak in IE that might be exaggerated by the controlitself.  Will keep you posted.
