Reduce publishing load by optimizing ordering on the public instance

PUBLISHING-254 introduces extended and improved publishing options to replace the orderSiblings property, which is deprecated from this release onward. Usually, the public instance is already ordered, and you just want to insert nodes in the right place. The new fast option for the ordering property does precisely this and offers improved publishing performance. Alternatively, if your public instance involves unordered complex structures, the full option brings everything back into order.

See Optimizing ordering on the public instance for more information.
