Talking about the hybrid heap erlang, I can mention that it is now
quite stable in the latest R10B releases and worth trying out.
Note, however, that garbage collection of the shared message area
is still a "stop-the-world" type of GC. The HiPE group is working
on an incremental GC for the message area, and it will probably be
included in R11B.
to start the hybrid heap emulator.
The shared heap emulator will be discontinued.
