This release also adds a considerable performance boost to MFractor.

MFractor no longer maintains a SQLite database of a solutions resources and now does this in-memory. This makes the initial scanning of a solution much faster and additionally makes any XAML resource based analyser dramatically quicker.

I predict you'll be pleasantly pleased by the plentiful performance perks!
