Partially yes - we have laid the foundations which will allow us to optimize Sitefinity even more in the future. We use Kendo UI exclusively in the Email campaigns module, some of the field controls have been reworked, page publishing has been speed up.
We are continuing with the optimization trends with the future releases as well.
