Afraid I don't recognize either of those two items.

Auto-save code has not changed at all in this release. Checking on my
system is saves about every 10 seconds or when leaving a page. If this
does not work on your system, please open a bug report.

First time startup may indeed be slower due to the index being
rebuild. After that there should be no delta. In fact on my system the
new version is faster than the old one. Might help to run zim with
debug logging and see at what debug output the time is spent. Also
something that should go in a bug report.
