I just received the notice e-mail and also got the reminder when I launched MadCap Flare this afternoon, so I went ahead and updated from 8-dot-whatever to 8.1.1.

After the dust settled, I fired it up. It appeared to launch in roughly 25% of the time 8.x has been launching up to now.

Less than a minute in all, compared to nearly four minutes last week from double-click to a loaded project.
Also, the reassuring Flare logo with the progress indication appears much sooner and disappears disconcertingly (leaving dead air) for a much shorter length of time. I was barely even getting concerned when it came back and populated the interface with my project.

So far, I've tried only a couple of basic things, but MadCap doesn't seem to be lyin' - it's faster.

Something as simple as switching to Content Explorer or clicking a top-level directory under Content now gets a reaction almost immediately, where before I'd wonder if I should go get coffee while waiting for the Resources directory to open. And I don't even drink coffee.

So far, so good.
