Public beta is now released. Welcome aboard!

October 19, 2011 by Vladimir Šor Filed under: Product Updates

Starting from today, the memory leak detector Plumbr is available to everyone as a public beta. This release marks a major milestone for us. After months of development we can now proudly present the first public release!

This means that:

  • The leak detection algorithm works – we have discovered more than 20 leaks in our private beta customers’ projects
  • We are confident that Plumbr doesn’t crash your application and doesn’t create any noticeable overhead
  • We have verified that Plumbr works with JDK 6 and 7 versions on different vendors (Hotspot, jRockit)
  • Plumbr is available for everyone with a 45-day free evaluation licence

The launched version is titled Plumbr 1.0RC1 (Release Candidate 1). This means that while the product works well, we want to collect some more feedback from – let’s say – a hundred more new users to tweak the functionality and infrastructure a bit more before the official 1.0 launch.

The next tasks in the pipeline right now feature improving the design and content of the leak reports (we have several ideas in development already), polishing the leak analysis algorithm even further, making the installation easier, and also introducing Plumbr pricing plans. We push hard to support Plumbr also on JDK 5, but we currently are not sure this will make it into the 1.0 release.

Until then – feel free to jump aboard, download Plumbr, attach it to your Java app and concentrate on your everyday jobs, while Plumbr takes care of looking for OutOfMemoryErrors. If you already have Plumbr, then download the 1.0RC1 version here. If you haven’t tried Plumbr yet, register your e-mail address and we will send you the whole package with a personal licence key. Hopefully you will  find our registration / download / install process to work as a breeze (current record holder did it in less than three minutes), but if you feel we should polish something, do not hesitate to contact us.

And – if you spot a memory leak, or have questions or feedback – we are all ears/eyes in our forums and at support@plumbr.io!
