RMagick 2.0 beta released with memory control functions

Yesterday was announced RMagick2.0.0 beta1 release.

Among others new features I've found interesting the "new methods to help control and monitor memory usage" I'm looking forward to playing with them when I'll be back from my holiday in late august.

RMagick has been quite often considered prone to memory leaks, but it seems that memory leaks are not the actual cause of the high memory consumption of RMagick it will be interesting to see what is now available to keep under control the memory used by this amazing library.
