The Hosted Client tests paint an even clearer picture of the general performance of Orleans and the level of improvements we’ve made in Orleans 7.

Grain identities now take the form type/key where both type and key are strings. This greatly simplifies how grain identity works and improves support for generic grain types. Streams are also now identified using a string instead of a Guid, which grants more flexibility, especially when working with declarative subscriptions (most commonly accessed via the [ImplicitStreamSubscription(...)] attribute)
