    Some devs of our team already using the beta is experiencing frequent freezes.
    The lock up can happen during startup, or on any asset change or during build.

    I attached VS2019 to Unity.exe, and I see the main thread is stuck in

    Here's the call stack of the main thread:

    Disassembly shows:

    I guess it waits for that async fetch to complete...
    Editor.log doesn't contain anything useful.
