I tried about a month ago, and found the improvements not very helpful, sorting by shifting one way at a time for instance. I could not see how I could check a long route for routing problems (duplicates, areas/roundabouts, gaps, loose ends) and correct it to be one single ordered strand for use in a navigation/trip-planning app. But I will have another look. I mainly noticed in many walking routes that damage by ID still occurs a lot.
