I just downloaded and installed the update.  In the notes it says 
improvements to edit fields so they act as fast as FB2.  I seem a little 
improvement but not much.  Create a text editing window and a simple program 
to load a significant amount of styled text from two different 'styl' and 
'text' resource. It is easy to see with about 20k characters.  Now have the 
program load the second styled text into the same field.  The existing text 
is selected then deleted with a noticable sweeping delay. Then the new text 
is added.  This is still much slower than FB2.  By the way, the 
mouse-down-scroll-the-thumb-real-time-update-the-text...... is awesome.
