As we continue to release performance focused features and fixes, and build processes around performance, I want to have a thread dedicated to those items.
Our public roadmap itemizes the feature work we are doing and planning to do, and items related to performance are tagged. In addition to that, we are building into our CI processes ways to measure and compare performance metrics. The goal is that with specific commits and builds we can get visibility to any impact on speed and memory usage.
One of the initiatives I'm spearheading is to populate a solution with UIs that are representative of your applications. To that end, I'm asking you to consider sharing those layouts with us. Perhaps the best way to gather them would be to open a repository and have you submit pull requests. I'll get working on that next and post details here.
Fast Renderers for Android are now merged and in nightly and will be our next pre-release. I hope some of you will take some time to test them out and report back here with your findings.
