I can say that from my small corner, something has really improved.

In Abril, when was launched, the avg latency from my 
network was about 140% higher when comparing to

*Now* it's about 10% *lower*! (about ~5ms in absolute values). So, someone 
tweaked something, somewhere regarding v6 routing :-)

IMHO, this also may indicate that there is still something along the 
path in the v4 side which may need some tunning... ;-)
