We use these a lot as they have a marked improvement in performance over standard asset listings.
We don’t use Matrix search - unless it’s improved dramatically it was significantly slower than What’s New pages last time we tried using it.
I’m talking about a 75% improvement in time when looking into a folder of several thousand news items. Maybe half a second more for each asset listing rather than What’s New page - and if you have many of these on a homepage for instance it can be 5 or more seconds of pageload time.
So my question is - what happens when we upgrade to 6 and all of our What’s New pages are transformed into Asset listings - is someone working to make sure the performace gains are the same in the updated asset listing if a date range is selected?
Will it be a seamless morph from one asset type to the other?
