Memory leak and JLD, does anyone maintain the package?


I would like to ask, of someone is maintaining JLD package. There is an open issue

Memory leak when loading multiple arrays in Julia 0.5
more than half a year, which I think is pretty serious. I can confirm the same behaviour with DataFrames and Julia 0.6.

This seems to me serious, since JLD is probably workhorse format for julia. Does anyone else observed the same behaviour?



Side note: there’s more JLD-related action here.


I am aware of this package, but I have just filed an issue that it crashes when saving long array of Strings.

It seems like a strange combination that I have save in JLD and read from JLD2. It seems weird, but I have my fingers crossed this will work.
