Check out the difference in speed between a release swf and the debug swf in the example project.
In the above tests I set the font size to 200 and clicked the outline button.
It’s almost 5x faster! I know it’s supposed to be faster but I didn’t have numbers before. It’s supposed to be faster if you’re running in the release build of the Flash Player as well. I might test that next.
