I've noticed a very dramatic slowdown in the last few releases of the
EAP in it's syntax analysis. (The time it takes for the little box in
the upper right to go from to a red/yellow/green)
Now, this wouldn't be a problem (you are probably trading speed for
stability at this point =)) but it definitely causes the responsiveness
of the editor to take a nosedive. Typing, highlighting, etc, are all
choppy. Any time I edit it kicks the syntax analysis back in and slows
it down again. (Clicking around/highlighting shows that it's back to
normal once the thing finishes.)
These files are about 2000 lines of code so we're not talking huge here.
It's more noticeable on the larger files, obviously, since it never
'snaps' out of it. I know about ctrl-8 but this is noticeable to some
degree on every file I have. Is there any way for you guys to make it
take less cycles away from the editor's cpu time, or is this stuff still
being performance tuned? It was way better (in that, I never noticed it)
back in the 21X EAPs.
