"Sped" is just the past tense of "to speed":

So it does fit in with the other lines "Added/Renamed/Sped up/...".

According to urbandict:

    a derogatory term meaning retard. comes from the phrase special

Oh well. Still, FWIW I'd have read this as normal english, not as some
slang term where it also happens to be an insult.
