After long wait, the first Release Candidate of web2project is now available. In the year since its fork from web2project, a heavy focus on system performance has resulted in numerous improvements:
* Selective refactoring of the database and targeted indexes have improved database performance by upwards of 50%;
* A caching layer for the Access Control Lists has reduced the number of database queries/page by 50-90%;
* Moving data access and permissions validation to the Models has reduced duplication and places for bugs to hide, shrinking the overall codebase by approximately 2%.
