Hi Nuno,
When doing it recently, it appears that there's a unpublished memory
limit of up to 30 MB imposed by Apple that an extension is allowed.

Initially, I was planning to use Swift interface with QtCore classes in my
core logic connected by an Objective-C Bridge.

However, due to the memory limitations, I've migrated from Qt to
some C-written hash maps, etc containers with less pointers and less
consumption of memory.

Take care.

Kind regards,
