Ive been testing the “staging” version of the core, and it’s great. No memory leaks apparent, and there appears to have been another pass at reducing heap usage as IoTaWatt is running in the 28K-30K range consistently (from ~23K and degrading steadily).
I may go ahead and put out an ALPHA release based on the development core. We did that back when the Krack vulnerability was discovered. I am anxious to get all of the new improvements into the field.
