I am using FastPDF kit framework (demo version) which available in github with the latest version. I found that there is increase in memory of application while switching between the PDF files. Due to this I can't run my application more than 15 - 20 minutes.

I have tried to to empty cache for the document in several places but it couldn't solve the problem. The application uses ARC.

Can anyone please help us on it.

    The issue is know. The new version should have memory back in check, with a 800 kb overhead on the first pdf open, and then a much smaller one of 20-80 kb for each successive opening. This looks to be mostly cache, like static object being allocated by the OS, etc.
    Please wait for the commit to be pushed online in the next few days.

    Is there a timeline for when the commit with a fix for the memory issue will be made?
    Will this be on the master or dev ?
