This could be solved in 2.9, in that case …
(Im in this on a friends request.)
The flash panel flicks pritty much on slower networks.
I run a bit of wireshark on it and found out a few things.
The answer contains:ETag: "2b483bb-11f0-b61e43c0"
So if this ETag is correctly used, more then header should not be fetched.
Flash also tries to load a “panel/background.jpg” which does not seem to be included in the installation. (Oh there is a simple fix :-’)
Cause this is not properly done the panel flickers unneeded.
There is more than one way to avoid it.
1 Use ETag:
2 Compare received contents(excluding date) if not ETag is properly set.
Is there any plans for this, is it allready solved.
In other case if you doesnt have the time… perhapes i could help.
