    "enable smart optimization" is an option that can be set for each module. Is on by default.

    from the v4 docs

    from the v2.7 docs of a similiar worded setting.

    Actual observed behaviour is with the setting off and advanced heuristics turned on, when loading my pdf viewer I get a 5+ second pause on loading on every time the app is loaded. When the setting is turned on I get the 5+ second pause the first time I load the app but then the app loads as fast as it does when the advanced heuristics is off. It then is slow once after either adjusting options or a defenition update. This behaviour is the same as what the 2.7 document is saying, a cached lookup result after the first lookup.

    You're talking about two different things. The "optimized scanning" option is enabled in v3/v4 by default and "smart optimization" is a new settings introduced in v4.
