Has anyone tried to use HTTP Compression with the UAB? If so, what is your experience, performance improvements etc? If not, why does not work?

I will let others answer about the HTTP compression; Our compression solution for UABv2 is to use MSI for your updates....If you use MSI for updates you get the benefit of MSI files by default are compressed & uncompressed, don't need to do anything in addition. For more details, see MSIProcessor.cs under Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.ApplicationUpdater.Processors folder
