Hooray! Almost all the bugs raised on the GitHub have been fixed perfectly in Hive! 0.0.8. Besides, Hive have became a real multithreaded application, which runs fluently even when the disk or the network is slow.
In Hive! 0.0.8, more animation and interactive components are included. You are free to disable or enable them whenever you want. Actually, with Hive's great optimization, you don't need to worry about its performance at all.
