Why was the website so slow for so long?

The cause of the slowdown was a change to the ZFS dataset. In conjunction with the database server, very little caching was being done. This combination resulted in increased disk I/O as the system churned through the database. Details in the blog post which outlines the various things which changed. Many graphs.

Update to 0.7.2.

"When editing a user's password or account expiration property, choosing cancel
or pressing ESC while editing the value manually would cause the value to be
blanked rather than preserved. This has been fixed and pressing ESC (or
choosing cancel) now preserves the value as expected.

Executing "bsdconfig foo" when LANG is set to "EN_US.ISO8859-1" produces a
non-i18n-compatible error message: "bsdconfig: foo: not found" (when it should
produce: "bsdconfig: foo: NOT FOUND"). This has been fixed by adding the
appropriate i18n messages and changing the code to use them.

Executing "bsdconfig -h" when LANG is set to an unknown language (for which
there are no bsdconfig localized language files), the output did not display
appropriately. This has been fixed.

Executing "bsdconfig timezone -h" (for example) when LANG is set to an unkown
language had similar issues to the above."
