the new algorithm is just a part of it.
No it isn't.
If anyone really thinks the algo changes are part of Caffeine, or doesn't understand exactly what Caffeine is, please follow the first link in the October Update Thread [webmasterworld.com] and read through some of the articles linked beyond the first one.
The algo ranks the pages.
The infrastructure stores the information.
To say the algo changes are part of Caffeine is like saying the 'PHP' of a site is part of MySQL and because someone change to Berkley the 'PHP' is part of the new storage system... They're not... They're not the same thing.
They work together, but switching from Big Daddy to Caffeine is like switching from a MySQL to Berkley Database... The storage method and system changed, but that's totally different than the 'PHP' doing ranking of the information contained by either.
