2021.3.23f1 Release Notes
2D: Greatly reduce the time taken for sprite imports when the sprite requires an outline to be computed (e.g. physics shapes or precise meshes).
Animation: Reduced the cost of building muscle clips, which among other things speeds up Animator.Awake.
Animation: Reduced the number of GC allocations when calling Animator.GetParameter(int index) and generally made it faster.
Build System: BeeDriver: ignore System.IO.IOException: Sharing violation on path errors for console log. [BUILD-21]
Editor: Reduced cost of outline rendering, which improves the frame rate of the editor when many objects are selected.
Graphics: Reduced the time the render thread spends on Profiler.FlushRenderCounters. (UUM-29300)
iOS: "Thread Performance Checker" is now disabled by default in a generated xcode project.
Kernel: Performance in heavily run code paths for NativeArray, UnsafeUtility, and AtomicSafetyHandle improved through inlining.
Scripting: Switched some path sorting during compilation from an invariant culture compare to an ordinal compare, speeding up C# compilation when scripts are changed.
Serialization: Improved performance of restoring managed objects during a domain reload (again!).
Serialization: Improved performance of restoring managed objects during a domain reload.
Shadergraph: Fixed parallax nodes so that they use the default UV Input Slot correctly. [SGB-511].
Shadergraph: Improved blackboard property drag speed when reordering the blackboard. [SGB-383].
Shadergraph: Made adjustments to flipbook node to avoid dropping frames on AMD GPU. [SGB-280].
