Holy crap! What did you do in 1.8.1? My sites on Azure are BLINDINGLY fast now. I mean they were pretty quick before I upgraded, but now I barely take my finger off the mouse click and the page is already loaded.

Bravo gentlemen...bravo!

Oh ya...and it fixed the issue I was having on Azure where the Blog pages would just go blank every hour or so until I restarted the website.

Impressed!

I awaited a complain about performance, but this is slightly better :-).

Hi, I still have the "blank page" problem with 1.8.1. Details here: https://orchard.codeplex.com/discussions/551871

What changed in 1.8.1? I mean, is it 'just' the output cache improvements that is improving performance? Or are there other changes in 1.8.1 that can have a large (possitve) impact on performance? If so, what ones?

Infoset storage and thus drastic reduction in DB queries.

Obvious to me, but I'm talking about the 1.8.1 upgrade.

Ofc if psenechal upgraded directly to 1.8.1 (as in, he didn't have 1.8 before) then you may ignore my question ;)

Reason I ask is that I wonder if we should push upgrading 'our' core to 1.8.1 or not. If it is just the 'output caching' improvements, then there is no need: we use a custom solution for that.

The one I REALLY noticed the difference on was setup as a new site and then all the content moved over from a 1.8 site. I haven't done an upgrade from 1.8 to 1.8.1 yet to compare the performance difference.
