    Why does it take several minutes to delete an article from the Paper Mache app.?

    The 'delete' should be much faster in the 1.0.3 release of Paper Mache.

    The issue is related to using the webSQL database support to store the articles. For the 'delete' option Paper Mache needs to actually remove the article, and sometimes webSQL hangs - its not clear if its the OS itself or the library used by Paper Mache here. Using 'archive' just flags the article, it does not remove it from the device, so it doesnt need to touch the webSQL code.

    In new versions, Paper Mache 'unlinks' the deleted article immediately so its effectively 'gone', and lets another process in the background actually delete the content.

    So it will appear to work much faster when deleting.
