What specifically was the optimization for IsA? I’m curious.

This API change seems to provide some clues.

Added Tag [CustomLuaState] to Function Instance:IsA

When a function has the [CustomLuaState] tag, it means that the function directly interfaces with Lua’s C API rather than going through Roblox’s normal reflection system. There’s probably more to it than just this though, and @zeuxcg might be able to elaborate further.

In our VM, strings are a bit more magical than they are in regular Lua - in Lua they are interned, so that many operations like table lookup never need to look at the string data; we have extended the interning to also work with our reflection data so that when doing __index/__newindex/etc. reflection doesn’t need to look at string data either. IsA is now also using this interned optimization so that it doesn’t need to do actual string comparisons.

So the emote wheel is enabled now?

How can we make use of this feature? It says it’s live, but…

There’s a property under the player called GameplayPaused, as well as some new properties pertaining to streaming under the Workspace.

I actually made a place to demonstrate how it works a few weeks ago:

Huh, I’m not able to find the property for it.

The enum is in the game, but workspace.StreamingPauseMode just…isn’t there. I’m able to find the Enum for it, however.

It’s not enabled yet.
It’s not enabled yet.

So it’s technically not live yet? Alright. Any estimate for when it will be?
