In fact even after quiting I see that LR is still open on the task manager, Windows 10 64 bits. I have to kill it manually to recover the memory?
Please follow the below steps
> Open Task manager
> Make a right click on Lightroom.exe process
> Choose Set Priority to High
> Quit Lightroom
> Relaunch Lightroom and check for the issue.
Hope this helps.
Thanks for the suggestion. Makes no difference. Still seems to be a memory leak. May be is specific of file from a certain camera? Happens with files from a 5DSR. And before ask, it's not the size of the files since the Pentax 645Z is the same size and the previous version was not doing it. I imported before this new "revamped" import module about 2500 images from the 5DSR and not a single issue. Normal speed. In this version I import just a few and the machine becomes really slow and unresponsive.

A number of people have reported this bug in the official Adobe feedback forum: Lightroom 2015.2:Hangs on quit. Several of them have reported that resetting LR's preferences fixes the problem: Resetting the lightroom preferences file - updated - Lightroom Forums.
Please add your vote and details of the quit-hanging issue to that topic. Doing so will help Adobe understand the issue and properly prioritize a fix, it will keep you apprised of any updates to the issue, and it will help others.
Every time I import with the new version of LR, the new import, LR uses tons of RAM and does not releases it unless I quit and becomes really slow,
Some things to try:
1. Double-check your version of LR by doing Help > System Info. (Don't rely on memory, since the flaky Adobe updater fools many into thinking they're on the "latest release".) You could update to CC 2015.2.1 / 6.2.1 if not already on that version.
2. Go to Preferences and uncheck Show Add Photos Screen, which disables the new Import screen. That has caused LR to slow down and crash for many, many users, and there are some reports that the problems continue int CC 2015.2.1 / 6.2.1.
3. Many of us recommend that you simply revert back to CC 2015.1.1 / 6.1.1: http://www.lightroomqueen.com/how-do-i-roll-back-to-lightroom-2015-1-1-or-lightroom-6-1-1/. Wait until Adobe cleans up the mess with CC 2015.2(.1) and let others do the beta testing.
Thanks. Yes it's the new version since is the first one with this ugly import screen. ;-). So if I uncheck that goes back to the old import screen?

No, it goes to a new Import screen.
