maybe not in general, but as EJAB-1461 says, pubsub with many 
subscriptions has been improved. When I run the test against ejabberd 
2.1.11 and 3-alpha-5 the difference is tremendous.

The test looks like this:

 connect 10000 User with a rate of 20 per second
 sleep between 1 and 600 seconds
 subscribe 50 random nodes out of 2000

There are about 10-20 events/s for these 2000 nodes.


Time for subscription

ejabberd2: 5mn 17sec(highest 10sec mean), 38.58 msec(lowest 10sec 
mean), 1mn 10sec(Mean)
ejabberd3: 0.76 sec(highest 10sec mean), 40.21 msec(lowest 10sec mean), 
0.19 sec(Mean)

Here are two graphs of this test:


Ejabberd3 seems to have some issues, like http-bind doesn't work with 
strophe.js or subscriptions can't be listed, but as far as I can see, 
the events are delivered properly.

I guess there are no plans to backport this feature/fix to ejabberd2? 
and well, I already asked for ejabberd3 ;)
