It's not funny at all. To repair things and to implement new features it 
is often necessary to do extra processing. Each time only a little bit 
of extra processing is necessary, but after a lot of features/fixes the 
extra processing time might be substantial.

During the time between 4.3 and 6.0 servers and client computers have 
both become more powerful. At the time that 4.3 was released the BE took 
probably longer to render than you've measured today.

Both are not excuses to say that it is okay, but is probably the 
explanation for what you've observed.

Now the good thing: 6.1 is meant to improve TYPO3 CMS in any area 
instead of trying to get many new features in. If you or someone in your 
company can do profiling to identify the areas in the backend that take 
longest to process or which are used very often we could all try to 
improve the performance.

Another thing that you can do yourself is optimize the server and the 
TYPO3 configuration. The performance penalty of new features can 
sometimes be compensated.
