Memory Leak in Configuration Application Block

The Enterprise Library team recently became aware of a memory leak issue in the Configuration Application Block, which is used by all other blocks in Enterprise Library. Patch 1475, available in the Releases section of the Enterprise Library community site, contains a fix to the issue. Because the issue has the potential to impact many applications that use Enterprise Library, Microsoft strongly advises all users of Enterprise Library (January 2005) to install this patch and recompile all applications that use any of the application blocks.
See the gotdotnet workspace.

In case you are using EntLib in your application, I would suggest you to go and get this patch. This is particularly very important as Configuration Block can be treated as Mother of all other blocks. Every other block depends upon Configuration block to have access to configuration files.
