Formerly retired certification requirement 5.2.5 - Memory consumption RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Since the previous requirements for Windows Phone Store are no longer used as all developers are pointed to the new requirements present at this location: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/dn764944?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396 , what will happen to the old requirements not encompassed in the new ones?

    More specifically I am interested in requirement 5.2.5 - Memory consumption. This does not seem to be encompassed in the new requirements. The page offering information on how to develop or low-memory devices is still present (https://msdn.microsoft.com/library/windows/apps/jj681682%28v=vs.105%29.aspx).

    Does developers have to continue optimizing apps to not exceed 90MB of RAM usage ?

    Additional to this, is there any expectancy to follow any of the previous guidelines not encompassed in the new requirements ? For example the retail configuration requirement.

    Thank you,
