Loading conversation history takes a long time for large history files

Some the users here have very large conversation history files (years, converted from ICQ conversations) and it takes a long time before the conversations are view-able/searchable. Switching to 1 year per page helps a little bit but defeats the purpose of finding information buried in the history. Is there any way to speed it up or is this being improved in the next version? We are running the latest version (2.8.3).


There is no fix for this yet (not in the next version either). It is complicated and i think it might require full rewrite to switch Spark to another GUI API (it is using rather old Java Swing technology now, JavaFX might improve things). But this is a lot of work and Spark doesn’t have dedicated developers, only occasional contributors.
