Yep they have, and they mention it on the 1.01 release information page.

"Of particular note in this list are tweaks to server functionality that
should provide a much improved play-experience on servers that are hosting
high-player-count games (please note the server hardware requirements
posted in the Community Update from April 9, fixes to the internal server
browser functionality, and rebalancing of the M60, the RPD and the US
Heavy Assault kits."

SERVER FIXES  --  General optimizations to reduce server lag

CLIENT FIXES -- Network overhead of vehicle engines and airlifting
significantly reduced
