ANTS Memory Profiler 8 Beta Available!

This will be a short one: I want to let you know that ANTS Memory Profiler 8 is now available in public beta.

The new version adds support for profiling .NET’s usage of unmanaged memory. If your .NET code consumes unmanaged APIs or legacy native code, or if you use 3rd party .NET components which do, you will see how much unmanaged memory those .NET objects are responsible for.

You are also shown a breakdown of memory usage by module, giving a high-level view of where most memory is being used. There are other significant UI and stability improvements too – more on those in a future post.

To help us create the most useful tool possible, we’d really appreciate any feedback you’re able to offer. Just download the beta, and email dotnetteam@red-gate.com with your thoughts.
