#23160 Change of internal memory manager
We are changing memory manager in Genus Studio, Genus Desktop and some core services in Genus Services. Our tests have shown that the new one have better performance when parallel threads allocate/deallocate memory at the same time. This may result in a higher memory usage than the old one. The old one will still be used for debug purposes, and in practice be present in all Pre-Alpha and Alpha versions.
Before and after the upgrade, extra time should be allowed for testing the impact of the new memory manager with your specific app model. Memory footprint and general performance needs to be tested, both client-side (Genus Desktop/Genus Studio -- Genus.exe) and server-side (the IIS worker process Genus Services Web Site AppPool, aka "megaservice" -- w3wp.exe).
