The new version of Open-source Erlang is released

We are proud to announce the long awaited new release of
Open-source Erlang. It has been available at the Open-source
Erlang web-site since 24 November 1999.

The URL of the open-source Erlang web site is:
At the web-site you can get all information about the new version
and can of course download your own copy of open-source Erlang.

Erlang is a programming language designed at the Ericsson Computer
Science Laboratory.

Ericsson Utvecklings AB is now responsible for development and
maintenance of both open-source Erlang and the commercial version

Open-source Erlang is being released to help encourage the
spread of Erlang outside Ericsson.

We are releasing the entire source code and documentation of the
Erlang system free of charge
(see Erlang Public License at the web-site).

Some of the main components of the Erlang system are:
- the Erlang runtime system and compiler.
- Mnesia, a distributed Database Management System.
- a Corba 2.2 compliant ORB.
- an SNMP V3 agent.
- an HTTP-server.
- an ASN.1 compiler.
- extensive libraries of code for building robust fault
  tolerant distributed applications.

The above software is continually tested and used in numerous Ericsson
products such as the new Ericsson ATM switch AXD 301.
