Last week we released the 6.1.3 maintenance patch for SugarCRM. You can check out the release notes for more details on the several stability fixes coming from customer, partner, and community requests.
We also added one new configuration option that is only controllable from the config.php file. The new option is named ‘quicksearch_querydelay’, and is set to the number of seconds you wish to delay the quicksearches from being called; by default there is no delay ( same behavior as in previous releases ). What this option can help with is if you have an instance with lots of records, and the quicksearch requests are taking lots of system resources and returning back erroneous results. Setting a delay here can reduce the number of requests made, and a result reduce the load on more heavily used instances.
