I have read recently " Heap Architectures for Concurrent Languages using
Message Passing" by Erik Johansson, Konstantinos Sagonas, and Jesper
Wilhelmsson.
There were proposed 3 different ways to organize memory in Erlang emulator:
process heaps, shared heap and  hybrid.
But what is used in current Erlang/OTP? It looks like there was -shared
switch for erl. What has happened to it? Or maybe it's explaned somewhere in
documentation but I can not find it?

Best regards,
Kirill.
