Is memory use of ~1.2GB to be expected?

I find that AppCode tends to start at about .5GB of real mem use, expanding to about 1.2GB over a morning's work. This is with my current project, which is moderately complex (containing several related projects, static libs etc), but not huge (a couple of hundred classes).

This level of memory use seems on the high side to me -- by comparison, XCode 4 hovers around  .5GB. But I haven't used a large java app before, so perhaps it's normal.

This isn't really a big problem -- even with my modestly-equipped (4GB) macbook, AppCode runs nicely. But am just interested in whether this is to be expected, or might reduce post beta.

We have made some optimizations, the next build will consume significantly less memory.

Look forward to trying it. Though I'd use it anyway. Regardless of memory footprint, since using AppCode I've only touched XCode for build settings. Really, really nice work.

you can also switch to 32bit mode, it saves a lot of memory. And 64bit is not probably needed.

Good point. I notice  that beta 2 is out, so interested to see what changes that may bring.

The combination of the new build, and running in 32 bit mode has more than halved memory consumption so far (after half a days' use). Great stuff.
