Since our 1.0 release in February, the LeanKit team has been working hard releasing multiple major and minor releases of functionality and system capabilities. With these new capabilities has come some neccesary and unneccesary overhead to the system. Coupled with the fact that our customers are mapping more and more complex value streams and processing more and more work items, we have had many reports of poor performance when performing even common actions. We took this feedback to heart and have spent the last two and a half weeks comcentrating all efforts on optimizing the application, particulary focusing on Board related activities. We set very aggresive goals, and we feel that we have achieved some impressive performance improvements.
But we do not want to leave our customers that use IE7 behind. Therefore we have researched and tested the application running in Google Chrome Frame, a free browser plugin for Internet Explorer from Google. This option allows our IE7 customers to experience the application with all the goodness of a modern web browser including the the improved responsiveness, standards, and features that the new browsers provide
We will continue to look for ways to improve the application’s performance as we continue down our development roadmap in the months ahead. And we will continue to pay close attention to feedback from our customers. Please contact us at any time with your feedback, opinions, and suggestions.
