Re: Regarding performance issues with the Emacs 25.1 Windows-build

There is a user on Reddit who pretends that theses latest binaries of Emacs run slower on Windows than on Linux.
I didn't get a chance yet to give it a try.
The test is as follows :

- Install Helm from MELPA.
- Add this config to the init file, as suggested by Helm page


If anybody has a chance to do the testing. I'm not sure about what helm config  he is
talking about (the full one or the default one).
My guess is that something else than emacs is disturbing his load time (antivirus ?).
But that could be nice to have something asserted about this.

Yes, you'd replied and one piece of feedback is plenty! Just a bit
work-bombed at the moment, hence the slow movement.

Good and timely feedback. The new version on ftp.gnu.org


I'll wait a few days and then remove the unoptimized version.

No worries, am glad to have got the feedback.

I'll try and get the next pre-release out of the door as soon as I can!
