Couple of Update notes. I fixed a small issue with the 008/006 editing and have been spending a bit of time going through the XSLT processing code to do as much optimization as possible — and I’m happy to report that it looks like some good has come out of these optimizations. Here’s how it benchmarks compared to 4.6.
Test System: Windows XP SP2, Dell 2Ghz Centrino, 1 GB RAM
Test Dataset: Project Gutenburg RDF Catalog
Number of Records: ~20,000
Processing time in MarcEdit 4.6: 1201 seconds
Processing time in MarcEdit 5.0 Update (includes UTF-8 to MARC8 conversion): 35 seconds.
Obviously this is a big increase.
Per usual, the update is available at: MarcEdit50_Setup.exe
