[mapguide-users] what's holding people back from upgrading to 2.0?

Short answer: yes.

However, testing the package that is available in that ticket, I am only 
getting CPU load issues using the AGG renderer. The GD renderer seems to 
work fine with that small subset of our data. But, when I test our 
entire site maps with either renderer, I am still having the same 
issues. AGG causes CPU lockup as well as memory-hogging, and GD still 
causes memory-hogging.

It is still being caused by the same layer, so I will see if it's 
possible to get an updated dataset to test with.
