Performance Improvements since 0.2:

  • now.js now contains nowUtil.js embedded, reducing number of requests

  • Static files (now.js) are now cached in memory on the server-side, reducing disk reads

  • Library does not provide a way to select particular clients or a single client based on filters/criteria.
