We plan to release the OpenSource Erlang OTP R9B-1 within a week.  It
you are a port maintainer, want to check if your patch made it into
the release or for other reasons want to test that there are no
serious problems with the release on the operating system you use or
your setup, please download and test the snapshot

  http://www.erlang.org/R9B-1_not_a_release.tar.gz
  http://www.erlang.org/R9B-1_not_a_release.readme

Note this is *not* R9B-1, it is a snapshot for verification.

Please inform us about problems, how serious they are and if
you feel they need to be corrected before we release R9B-1.

The following patches sent to the erlang-questions list are part
of this snapshot

  James Hague Erlang shell ls() patch to avoid double newlines.
