Print-Time in Cura 3.5 higher then 15.04

Why is the print-time higher in Cura 3.5 then 15.04. I am using an UMO+ and I think I have all the same setting in both cura's which are importent. 

Does anyone know why Cura 15.04 is faster. 

I would like to use the new Cura but if the print-time is higher I would prefer Cura 15.04

    How much of an increase are we talking about here? Release 15.04 has been a while ago, there are many potential explanations, depending on the situation, but they come down to a few reasons:

    a) The default values of settings may have changed. (Some settings may not even have existed in the form they are in 3.5 during 15.04.)

    b) Bug fixes and other quality improvements, (and/or things like "we can only (soft) guarantee that 'bad thing X' doesn't happen if we slow down a bit") can also be the cause of increased printing time.

    It has to do with the default speed settings. In Cura 3 they changed up the default printing speeds within the profiles, at least there is where the difference was for me. You can customize them yourself to match the once you used in 15.04.
