I just downloaded 3.17.1, created a new project and tested for leaks in Instruments. As you can see in the picture, there are leaks. This happened with 3.8 as well. I am having a very hard time diagnosing the source of them. When I add my own memory leaks on top of this, my app will crash in unpredictable ways. I am lost as to what to do. How can these leaks be fixed? Instruments occasionally points me in the right direction, but the best strategy has been to painstakingly remove functionality until a leak disappears and then narrowing it down from there. Please help.
TLDR; Are the memory leaks in a fresh cocos2dx project an issue? How do you fix mysterious memory leaks?
