I actually had little to do tonight, and started working on V9 earlier than intended, specifically in improving the second half of Lockjaw's Locker (because I was dissatisfied with saving only 9 frames.) Found many minute time savers, and ended up saving an additional 20 frames. So overall 29 frames saved in that level.
Interesting to note is that I found the fastest possible way to go inside the warp, at least 3-4 frames faster than any other possible method due to wonderful landing-in-water boosts. It was purely accidental as well, much like being inside the wall and hitting the cannon kroc correctly in backwards switch #1 in Chain Link Chamber. (only took 1 rerecord- in test runs, by stopping Arne's demo vid it took me hundreds and I still couldn't do it.)
Lockjaw's Locker V9 improved
I am going to be juggling this with Kirby's Dreamland 3, taking it very slowly, making sure it is 100% perfect, and only releasing WIPs when a world is done. (reason is that daily updates made me rush some levels, I want to take this extremely slowly. I will send WIPs of levels/current progress to anyone who asks.)
10 bonus points to anyone who can verify what Arne's progress is, if he even is still working on any%.
