I know this was discussed a year or so back, but the forum search is not providing useful results.
Along with the need to relaunch the IDE every hour or so comes the delay that those of us with large Plugin collections witness. The previous discussion was regarding unzipping the .xojo_plugin files and renaming the resulting folders as .xojo_plugin. We discussed how this change really improved load times of the IDE and I even duplicated it. However, in 19r1.1 and 19.2.1, it seems that the uncompressed versions are being ignored. Did this option go away in the newer IDE?
