See this message on the arma 3 discord:

Note: This update comes with an experimental companion mod that adds new UI components for the video settings menu and also includes SQF Bytecode for most vanilla functions.
You can download it here:
If you don't load the companion mod you will get the message "No entry 'bin\config.bin/CfgVideoOptions.PiPVisibility'" at startup, but you can just click OK and Arma will launch and run fine.

Just a suggestion, it would probably be a good idea to make a Wiki article explaining more about the performance branch. I've read over the OP of Dwarden's thread on the forums in the past and searched for info on the wiki and still had no idea exactly what the performance branch actually entailed. I was also unaware that there was a changelog for it on the official Discord, so thank you for the link, good to know.

performance branch is basically a dev-branch. thats about it.
But yeah maybe there should be a better wiki page
