Yes, however not as active as in the past. I am working on other projects, both personal and professional, which take the majority of my time.
I expect to have a new version out sometime in July.

In this case the menu is trying to get the timestamp for a shortcut in the start menu to see if it has changed. That shortcut is probably on a remote machine.
See if disabling the settings "Highlight newly installed programs" makes a difference for you.

The pinned programs are not in the settings, just like the list of installed programs is not in the settings.
They are stored in this folder: %APPDATA%\ClassicShell\Pinned

It uses as much as it needs. If you have a large start menu it will need more memory to store the data.

The slowdown seems to be caused by the file C:\Program Files (x86)\NSL\NSCommonHook64.dll.
It is probably trying to access a network location and waiting for a response.
Possibly related to the user profile being on a remote machine.

You can remove the Log Off option, go to the Special Items tab and loo for "Show Log Off".

The start menu image in the Style tab is just a sample. The text usually comes from the OS. You can change it from the "Menu caption" setting in the Menu Look tab.

If you use the Classic style of the start menu the pinned area will be scrollable.
The Windows 7 style doesn't work that way because it replicates the behavior from Windows 7.

The COM threads issue is not specific to CU. It was also reported with the Anniversary Update. So if you weren't affected by it with AU, and you don't care about texturing the taskbar, then 4.3.0 will work fine for you.

I think when CU is installed it asks you about your privacy preferences. If you choose to not track your program usage then the "frequent programs" list will be empty. You have to go into the OS settings to enable the tracking.

The transparency is different in different areas of the menu - border, text background, scrollbars. For some simple skins a global setting may make sense, but for sufficiently interesting skins things are not that simple.
