Has a BIG issue with memory usage in 5.8.2. Having installed iStat menus to keep an eye on my newly installed memory usage I noticed Earthdesk gradually increases its usage over time. Having been away for 5 days I find it is using 1.7Gb memory! No wonder my machine was slowing down... I emailed Xeric as I thought it was retaining coud images and got the following response... "It is not the clouds files (though we will double check that), but rather
the image data for the maps. We have fixed this for a future release.

It might be released with EarthDesk 6, but is more likely to be sooner."

Nice! We might have to pay extra to fix a major bug in the program having already paid for it, AND paid extra for high-res clouds.. Not impressed :(

Hooray! It all works again. I've been using Earthdesk for a while as the previous version was very flaky on Intel macs but this new release seems to have cured all of the problems.

Fantastic program Gabriel. Thanks a lot!

I would agree with the last poster regarding the program crashing.

I have been an avid user of OSXPlanet for a number of years but swapped to Earthdesk when it became incompatible with Leopard.

Having recently switched back with the release of 2.0b2 I have also found that after an extended period of being open the app crashes, and istat menus has the program using almost 100% of BOTH cores until the program is force quit.

I also had the problem of it not remembering presets but this seems to have settled down.

I will be reverting to Earthdesk until Gabriel can sort these problems out. Sorry Gabe!
