No, this is not true. At least, it wasn't true for 0.1.1.x. Some kind
soul appears to have modified the FAQ to report the current situation,
rather than bugging anybody about the problems. :)

A few months ago we had plenty of people running at 30Mbps+ using 200M
or 300M of memory, back when 0.1.1.x was the recommended stable.

You might try downgrading to briefly, and see how it compares
to the current situation.

Fun fun,
