We announced Drip, the IE Leak Detector back in June.
Since then, the project got picked up by Matthias Miller, and his team has released a new version of the tool.
The new features of Drip are:
Major enhancements include:
- Drip now supports popup windows. (Note that the “Auto-Refresh” button does not apply to popup windows.)
Major fixes include:
- Drip no longer incorrectly reports certain memory leaks involving createElement and cloneNode.
- Drip no longer crashes when navigating to a folder on the hard drive.
- Drip no longer crashes when accessing properties for a leaked element that used filters.
Minor changes to the user interface include:
- Drip now supports Windows XP themes.
- Drip now displays real-time memory usage.
- “Blow Memory” has been renamed to “Auto-Refresh”.
- All windows are now resizeable.
- The memory leak report can be copied to the clipboard.
- The memory leak report and properties window include a “Properties” button.
- The properties window shows the name of the parent object.
- The properties window indicates which objects are null.
