Performance: Index Creation

Administration / Shopper Experience 

Earlier when an admin user used to publish a catalog having a large number of products (more than 1 lakh), the products used to display one by one on the web-store as the indexing used to progress.

With this release, the product listing page will display the last published products until the current publish and indexing process is in progress. As soon as the publish and indexing process is completed, all the published products with the latest publish version will get displayed on the web-store.
