Next Optimization Article is on the way

The often referred to IMP Cacheing Deluxe article is now being written. I'd guess that I will release it middle of next week. Basically this all was triggered by a request from Hervé Malaingre, who needed a faster NSAutoreleasePool. I had written the MulleAutoreleasePool last year - as a little exercise to keep the fingers warm - and it was nice to see that it was not just for academics. As Herve wrote me:

One final remark : I've compared GnuStep implementation and yours. As you suspected it, Mulle's version is faster for all operations but the allocation. I tested it with a little piece of code which requires a lot of pools allocation and the difference is quite sensible.

I also need the new article to have something to show for the grand opening of the Forum :)
