Faster validation. New code in the validator has greatly increased the speed with which results that are completely identical can be validated.
Also a new system has been put in place to detect and avoid database overloads generated by users continously scraping the website for data using automated bots. This new system will also attempt to kick in when the database is overloaded for other reasons and may inform users to wait a few seconds before retrying the request.
This should already produce a noticeable speed increase on pages related to results and workunits.
