While I’ve not really had a chance to talk about it recently, owing to being rather busy, there has been a lot of work done in Known core recently.
Known uses event queues to dispatch things like Webmention pings. By default, this dispatching is synchronous. However, an advanced feature that was recently added, was the ability to enqueue events and have them dispatched later in an asynchronous fashion, enabling faster page loading.
