DBIx::Class is already one of the most powerful ORMs you can use in any language (but only Perl has it ;) ). Now, after a huge effort to redesign key code paths and all the requisite testing for backward compatibility you might imagine, the newly released version is significantly faster. How much faster?
Ok, so lets not use our own benchmarks, but instead those of other competitive Perl ORMs. Take a look at https://github.com/damil/compare-ORM which compares DBIC with DBIx::DataModel. We ran this test suite against the previous stable DBIC and this new release. Here's the diff:
So by this bench we are seeing quite a few use cases nearly 10 times faster! Of course your results may vary, but I found my current job test suite (not exactly fast) completed better than 20% faster. That alone is a pretty sweet improvement from just an upgrade.
The new version of DBIC also include a pile of fixes and other improvements. Check out the changelog and download it and let us know what it does for you! As always you are just:
Away from all this amazing speed and power!
