Compiler Improvements!
One of the cool things about continuing work on SourceMod is that we get to do lots of experimental research, and then pump applicable results back to AMX Mod X.

Over the past few days, faluco and I worked on the Pawn compiler, and made a startling discovery that the speed of compilation could be greatly improved. For some users, compiling UWC3 or WC3FT can literally mean starting, coming back after a full ten-minute coffee break, and finding it's not quite done yet.

With this version, the same plugin compiled in under 30 seconds. Needless to say, this instantly made a few users drool for a new release. So, again parting from our normal release cycle (which mostly involves missing dates), we're posting a public update.

If you've got a large plugin and you're often frustrated with the compile time lengths, try out these binaries! If you run into problems, post in this news thread or in Bug Reports (which is for bug reports). Again, this is for people with large plugins. We want to know how much faster your stuff compiles!


(Note: The Linux build outputs statistics twice, ignore this!)
