Can you post your test description?
It would be useful to see a comparison of build 656 v 703 v 708 v latest
joyride. That's a lot so just 703 (last release image) vs latest Joyride
would the top priority.
What is the latest version of Joyride that people should be testing?
I re-read your status e-mail July 12 and didn't see it in there:
I didn't click on all the links so let me know if I missed it somewhere.

I already have them for one of the latest joyrides.
For my work I normally take first start-up and second launch timings.
I haven't yet checked whether rainbow is now started after X in the
latest joyride or if this is coming soon in the next builds. Would make
sense for you to have the same timings taken also after restarting
?I'm not familiar with builds changelogs since 650; let me
know from which of them you'd like these timings.
