Please describe what exactly you are referring to. The lyrics text should be more clear and easier to read. Also, the game now runs by default with the actual screen resolution instead of running at 720p at best.
No, not the lyrics font, but some other font. But I thinks the font did not change it's due to the 720p issue.
(But personally, is it now with new version or worldparty, both are on 1080p)

in older versions the cover/video preview was stretched and looked bad for example on a 16:9 screen. It now automagically adjusts the hight of the preview part and crops the video accordingly. Please provide screenshots of less good resolution. For my test cases the resolution of the cover images is a lot better with the new dynamic image loading approch.
Okay, it's just seeing differently annoy me at the moment, but I'll get used to it.
But, crop the video I don't really like it ^^
Cause all the video I personally use (when song making) are in 16:9, so all the video are crop.
Would prefer a 16:9 window preview, then 4:3
(I prefer a 4:3 to be crop to fit 16:9 then the other way around)
But it's just my taste ^^ Don't take it at heart.
Maybe something to create in the next version of Ultrastar
(a new feature allowing to chose the "window video preview" format ^^)

Frames per second might be lower depending on your hardware but overall scrolling should be faster (comparable by how long you have to wait to scroll for example 500 songs)
The lower fps is caused because the game now doesn't load all cover images into system memory any more (which was horribly slow, wasted lots of system memory and caused the game to crash after playing for an hour or so), but instead it only loads a cover image when it is about to actually be shown on screen. This change also lowered the system memory usage so that now you can have for example 10.000 songs in the game and still have low memory usage.
Scrolling lots of song goes faster, but when going slowly (one song at a time) it seems a little slower.
Well, nothing important ^^
As for my hardware, I've got quite a computer (self build computer).
That's maybe why I had no problem with having lot's of song and still UWorldparty to work fine.
(Even if all cover where loaded on the system).

There's not much change for me, they open up at the same speed more or less (maybe 1sec faster for new version)
I should try maybe on my laptop on battery mode (less powerful). And see if there's lot's of change.
But both open faster if they were opened before (the second time goes 3x faster)
