The new version of Stickman (5.3) will be much faster to receive news or to browse the online library. Users that had problems with time delay between the server in Norway and their location will get a better experience.
The problem was to detect the length of the data stream received over HTTP. Before, the length was unknown. Therefore Stickman had to wait some time before disconnecting the data stream. I found a method to read the data stream length. Now the data stream is closed immediately at the end. This means better speed.
