Reporting in to happily confirm that version 1.7 beta has greatly reduced or nearly fully eliminated builder lag from my complex page. Super, super good stuff. Great job team.

Hi guys,
Bricks 1.7 beta, now available as a manual download in your Bricks account » Bricks – Account , contains a fix for this massive issue.
