Before anything, could you test this with the newest 0.11? Maybe it was a known issue and has been fixed already; note that de/compression went from the love.math to the love.data namespace.
Any windows builds of it anywhere for a quick test?

Re: [0.10.2] love.math.compress/decompress seems to be leaking memory

Here's the baseline memory usage:

And after hammering ~2k compression calls:

Calling collectgarbage any amount of times has no effect on the memory.

Re: [0.10.2] love.math.compress/decompress seems to be leaking memory

I called collectgarbage() twice to run a full GC cycle after compressing the data, it doesn't free it up, and the memory usage by love2d keeps on increasing after each compression call. I'm very sure this is a memory leak, because like I said, this does not occur if I just write the serialized data ...

[0.10.2] love.math.compress/decompress seems to be leaking memory

Hello, like the title says, seems like calls to love.math.compress/decompress leak about ~200kb of memory (or maybe even more), independent of the compression algorithm. (I've tried lz4 and zlib so far, with different compression levels) I'm writing savefiles to disk, and if I compress the written d...

Re: Game Dev Studio - a game dev sim, with focus on employees (now on Steam)

Congratulations! Having your game released on Steam is a great milestone. Much respect to you as a fellow dev. But as I player going over the trailer and screenshots - I have to say that it's very hard to stand out on Steam. Was really hoping for a more lighthearted direction, with puns and referen...

Re: Game Dev Studio - a game dev sim, with focus on employees (now on Steam)

absolutely, right now I've been putting all of my efforts and time into a stable Windows release, but once I'm done with it, I'll look into a Mac and Linux build for sure. doubt it'll be that hard either, considering how cross-platform LOVE2D and also the fact that I've already run it on my work mac...

hey! thanks for the kind words and the tips.
I haven't yet received any friend invites from people, and I've been using the steam curator system to send out keys to communities for review. :D
