Foundation 6.2 has put on some weight

I was excited when Foundation 6 came out and boasted a 50% code reduction. I spent some time upgrading a client site to Foundation 6 so it would run faster. I'm obsessed with shaving kb off my CSS and JS files where possible.

I couldn't help but notice that Foundation 6.2 is putting on a little weight.

FOUNDATION 6.1.1

foundation.css (76 KB)
foundation.min.css (53 KB)
foundation.js (243 KB)
foundation.min.js (93 KB)

FOUNDATION 6.2

foundation.css (87 KB)
foundation.min.css (61 KB)
foundation.js (284 KB)
foundation.min.js (104 KB)

Still, this is a great framework and I love that the Zurb developers were able to reduce the size of the project files by so much with this new release.
