There has always been compaction support.  The original version wasn't very good, both slow and unable to fully compact (unless the heap is very regular).

That's extremely vague.  Can you be more specific?

I have made the new compactor the default after getting a test suite to pass at  Cadence.  I've been using the new compactor without issue since getting the suite to pass.  Levente has reported some crashes in saving Monticello packages.  I have not seen anything like this.
