  1. I had horrible lag when I upgraded from 2.7 to the 2.8 viewer.  I turned on the Statistics Bar and found that Ping Sim was continuously over 500msec.  So everything was laggy slow.

    I'm running SL 2.8 on a Core 2 Duo 3.06GHz MacBook Pro with 8GB of RAM and the NVIDEA GeForce 9600M GT with 512MB.  

    Switching back to viewer 2.7 and everything is fast again with Ping Sim back to less than 100msec.

    After more fiddling with 2.8, i found that if i set the Graphics to "Low" the Ping Sim was under 100msec and SL was not laggy.  Just turning on the "Basic Shader" check box in the Graphics preference would cause Ping Sim to go over 500msec and stay there.  Uncheck the "Basic Shader" check box and Ping Sim was back down to below 100msec.

    So there is obviously some big bug in 2.8 that effects my MacBook Pro and GeForce 9600M graphic card.

    I'll stay with 2.7 until they fix this.

    Can anyone else duplicate my findings?
