Default Is A/C improved on 2013 OB?

All the "weak a/c" threads seem to be talking about 2011 (maybe 2012) model year. As far as I can tell from my 3 month old 2013 (which can't even adequately cool the car on a sunny 70 degree day) Subaru has done nothing to improve the known problem with a/c function ... can anyone confirm that?

We've had some 80 and 90 degree weather here already and I found the AC pretty cold. Just got my windows tinted, so should be even better. I am a 54 year old woman, so I'm pretty difficult to cool down at times. The real test is a couple months out

Don't recall a lot of complaints on the dual zone systems only the Premium/Base systems that cycle off. The new rear vent could use some help with more air flow and limited high temps on the heater.
