[oXygen-user] oXygen 13.1: Problem with validating a large folder

Thank you for letting us know about this.

A bug was introduced in Oxygen v13.1 in the batch validation mechanism 
which leads to a large number of threads being created(one for each 
validation/file). Each created thread consumes little memory but they 
all add up and eventually consume all the memory available to Oxygen 
when running a batch validation with thousands of files.

We have already identified and fixed this problem in our development 
stream. The bugfix will be available in the next maintenance build of 
v13.1, at the end of this week or the beginning of the next. We will 
notify you as soon as the bugfix is released.

Currently the only workaround in v13.1 is to validate smaller batches of 
files(below a thousand files), so you will have to select one ore more 
directories from the Project view, right click on the selection and from 
the popup menu choose Validate -> Validate. If a folder contains too 
many files(over a thousand), you have to expand it and run separate 
batch validations for its files/folders.

Please let us know if you need additional assistance.
