Is there a new release scheduled to happen soon(ish)?

Yes all experimental features are after the last release, so you need a
more recent development snapshot.

That explains why I couldn't find it.
I don't HAVE a "features" tab.
Running 2021.01 here.

Getting fast previews of complex scenes is an art. Union in preview is
free. 3D difference () and intersection() are slow. I tend to wrap those in
render() to get a one off hit.

Limiting the accuracy of the round parts would also hose up my ability
to check the fit.

+0000, and, according to prophecy, it shall come to pass that:

Also tweak $fs/$fa/$fn so as to have fewer segments in curved parts.

This is a good one.

I sometimes set a global variable FN and in all my round things say:
$fn=FN.

O M G That's AMAZING!  Yeah, the speed is certainly "adequate" :)

I use $fn to make regular polygons, and $fa/$fs for actual curves.
