We’re still a far cry from the lean-mean Moodle 1.9 but it is great to see that Moodle HQ have managed to keep adding features whilst reducing Moodle’s footprint on hardware. One cannot compare Moodle 2.x with Moodle 1.9.x – there have been too many features added, improvements made for it to be a fair comparison. Moodle relies heavily on calls to the database so the less calls, the better. With a 37% improvement, this alone should prompt you to update to Moodle 2.4 when it comes out.
