    hi guys,

    i found based on this article 
    https://documentation.red-gate.com/sa6/adding-other-optimizations

    that you removed the great option 
    "I want to reduce unused allocated memory" option was removed in SmartAssembly 6.12.4.

    which btw you never mention anything about it in the official release log:
    https://documentation.red-gate.com/sa6/release-notes-and-other-versions/smartassembly-6-12-release-notes

    care to explain why you removed that great feature that was actually the only thing that was indeed working fine compared to the sealed classes which causes many crashes? 


    thanks
    John

    This was removed because it caused a number of issues; and it was never really that effective in the first place in our experience. You are right that it should have been in the release notes though, I've added it.

    we have to agree to disagree on this, after years of using your tool my experance was great, and the difference huge, 500mb of RAM usage down to few kilobytes sometimes and only spiking when the application was doing something, and not not just stay idle!

    plus it was a great selling point to some customers that care about resources and not been able to upgrade their pcs or servers so easily :cry:

    the sister option as i mentioned yes, was indeed caused various issues and made the application unstable.

    any plans to replace it with something "better" in the future? any other optimizations you could add?
