Adobe took to its Lightroom Journal blog to ask users to submit feedback about Lightroom's "most pressing issues" when it comes to performance of the application. In the blog post, Adobe wrote "I would like to address concerns recently voiced by our community of customers around Lightroom performance, as improving performance is our current top priority." I would beg to differ with Adobe on the timeframe within which these concerns have been voiced, but it's great to know they're getting serious about improving performance.
Of course, Adobe didn't pass up the opportunity to state that they have made many improvements to Lightroom's performance over the last year, but perhaps the request for feedback specifically relating to performance issues (and not to feature requests) is a sign they're taking things more seriously. If you've been a Lightroom user over the last several years and are having performance issues (sorry for the redundancy there), this is your chance to let Adobe know where you think Lightroom needs to speed up.
If the directness and simplicity of Adobe's survey is any indication, maybe they really are ready to get serious about performance. It's actually one of the most to-the-point surveys I've ever taken. It won't take you long either.
