Memory leaks, be gone!

March 29th, 2007 by crschmidt · No Comments

After a couple hard days with Drip, the IE Memory Leak Detector, OpenLayers no longer leaks any DOM objects when leaving the page.

The end result of this is that OpenLayers is far more efficient in terms of memory usage. This has led to a noticeable improvement in performance in some cases, especially cases with a layer switcher or large numbers of markers.

Thanks to Erik for his help in debugging these leaks, and helping keep me going when I wanted to never see a DOM Leak again!
