SharePoint Announces SPDisposeCheck

For those developers in the ISV community out there working with SharePoint the SharePoint team has recently made a significant announcement.  A static source code analysis tool, SPDisposeCheck, will be made available to the public in order to help check for memory leaks caused by not disposing of objects properly in SharePoint.  While the tool will not be made available until later in the year, "planned for release during the coming North American Winter", it will serve as a good starting point to uncover issues and potentially help build better quality code.

The tool leverages guidance from Mike Ammerlaan, Scott Harris and Roger Lamb which can be found in this whitepaper and this blog.  To read more click here.
