Hi Florian,

In version 7, do interior pointers always keep objects alive if they
have been allocated with GC_malloc or GC_malloc_atomic?
This should be the same as before. Could you supply a test case? What's your platform?

In previous versions, this depended on the value
GC_all_interior_pointers, but it's marked as deprecated.
Direct access to GC_all_interior_pointers is deprecated, please use GC_set/get_all_interior_pointers() instead.

Is DONT_ADD_BYTE_AT_END still relevant?Yes. Should be.
