I'm posting this in addition to all the other unresolved R# memory leak threads already posted in the last year. First and foremost, I love your product as it has saved me an incredible amount of time with my development efforts. However, the memory leak is undeniable, especially with .net web applications.
My current solution employs one web project and four assembly projects, with a large number of base and third-party assembly references. The hit I take when R# parses all assemblies and files on initial solution load is manageable and after R# is finished initializing, my solution is utilizing about 200mb of available memory.
After about two hours of coding, the memory consumption reported in the GC status bar is hovering around 470mb while Task Manager shows devenv.exe consuming upwards of 950mb. In the grand scheme of things, that's not too bad when I'm working with 3gb of RAM on a dual core system. However, that seems to be a memory ceiling for R# because after that point, VS 2005 is practically unusable. Making simple edits in html markup takes about 3-4 seconds for each key press. The effect of forcing garbage collection for R# is so insignificant, its not even worth having the feature there to begin with.
At this point, you devs know that this is a major problem. As far as i see it, this is the major failing of this product. For all it offers (and it offers a great deal), this is a great, fundamental flaw that desperately needs to be remedied. People have been clamoring for a memory leak fix since 2.0 and now in 3.0.2 the issue remains.
Is this a top priority for your developers and when can we expect a fix?
