It is literally hundreds of times faster, although I am uncertain as to whether he wrote code for testing the significance of the parameter. The last mention I have seen of this was in 2010<https://stat.ethz.ch/pipermail/r-devel/2010-February/056745.html>.

You could check the NEWS file, but I don't remember anything being done 
along these lines.  If the code is in a CRAN package, there doesn't seem 
to be any need to move it to base R.
