I spent some time this morning running the 1.0 branch code and performance was much better. I then had a few other people try out the RC today and it seems like the performance problems with TFS were in the CTP 2 release. The RC seems to have
much better performance now.
Just to give you some data.
the CTP 2 took 7 minutes to install 12 packages in a chain. It tool 45 minutes to uninstall them.
using the RC release the install took about a minute and the uninstall took about a minute.
Having this much of a difference, I think I am going to create a package to verify the version of the client console using the $host.version and force everyone to upgrade in order to install the new packages.
