Hello Adrian,

many thanks for the prompt answer. 
It's currently not a critical issue for me so I'll wait for the maintenance release.

All the best

> 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.
