There is memory leak in Xamarin Forms for Android(22.214.171.12417-pre5) when use new material design. If I push and pop pages in navigation there would be OutOfMemoryException thrown. If I don't apply Material design evrything works without crash.
We are experiencing the same issue with the severe memory leak when using the FormsAppCompatActivity in the main activity.
When running with the Xamarin Profiler we can see that the majority of objects and allocated memory are never freed.
We tried to change back to using non AppCompat (and there by non material design)
by using the FormsApplicationActivity instead. This made a significant memory leak improvement.
When we used the AppCompat the application quickly went to a working set of 150 Mb and it kept on increasing.
When we used FormsApplicationActivity instead then it started at 24 Mb and pretty much stayed there.
We am primary testing on android 4.2.2 and 4.4.4.
XF version 126.96.36.199,
Xamarin.Android.Support.v7.AppCompat version 23.3.0.
Any comments on when this will be looked at or comments on a possible workaround are much appreciated.
See bug 40955. 2.3.1 resolved this issue for me.
If this is fixed, can it be closed? Please test with the latest pre-release.
Assuming fixed until otherwise reported.
