Sorry for the delay, I actually ment to send this 5 hours ago but did a
misspelling of the mailaddress. R9B has been available for more than 5
hours now.

We are proud to announce that the new Erlang/OTP R9B-0 release is
available for download as planned October 16, 2002. 

This is the original R9B release, R9B-0. You can download the full
distribution from (this file)

If you have access to the Ericsson intranet you can find the same files

Note that to unpack the TAR archive you need a GNU TAR compatible
program. For example on MacOS X you need to use the 'gnutar' command,
you can't use the 'tar' command or StuffIt to unpack the sources.

For installation instructions please read the README that is part of
the distribution.

There is no support for building a Windows version from source.
The Windows binary distribution can be downloaded from

The documentation at will be updated. You can
also download the complete HTML documentation or the Unix manual files

For some OTP applications there are more detailed release notes in the
HTML documentation.

We also want to thank those that sent us patches, suggestions and bug
