Both are actually the same now.  The IVY-387 was an aggregation of
different absolute and relative path issues.  All have been solved
except IVY-232 which was a bigger change. [1]
I think Matt may already has a patch, he just need some help to test.

Correct.  Most performance issues that I have observed are now fixed.
I just have one pending.  I think that (at least on my benchmark
project) there is still too much ivy file parsing.  It seems that the
number of ivy file parsing grows with the size of the repository (or
with the size of the cache) which I didn't explain yet and is a source
of poor performances.
This is the last point that I plan to fix.  After I will stop.  As it
is not a show stopper this can be postponed to 2.0.1 if it is not done
for the RC-1. release.

I also think that once the RC-1 is released, we should start the 2.0
branch (or 2.0.0).  Keeping the trunk for changes that will be for
2.0.1 (for example possibly the end of my IVY-872), and the branch
only for 2.0-RC show stoppers.
