Let's remember how Visual Studio 2022 could eat up 100 GB of memory

Visual Studio 2022 is out!

 

I think it's a good point to recall an interesting bug in VS 2022 Preview 3.
How could Visual Studio 2022 eat up more than 100 GB of memory and what did XML bombs have to do with it? I've described it here in more detail. Enjoy reading! :)

 

Now the bug is fixed, and you can limit the number of XML entity references. :)

 

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Visual Studio and .NET development teams.
Good job!
