Just a heads up: if you use setData to repopulate a tableview and you are using either 1.7.0 or 1.7.1: the old views dont release at all. I created a JiRA ticket to address this issue: http://jira.appcelerator.org/browse/TC-108. I dont do Android so you will have to check for yourself on that platform.
This happens on IOS 4.3 and IOS 4.2.
I think Android has the same problem (but haven't explored it much).
Confirming same peroblem with Adroid using 1.7.0; can you get arround this writing rows directly ?
What symptoms do you see, or problems that this causes? Memory consumption goes up? App slows down?
Set a default table to see if that would show; NO; this was working in 1.6.2
anyone have a workaround?
Workaround; yes, you have to write each row in a loop everytime you need to update the array
