Congratulation for the release. Thank you very much for the inclusion
of patches and fixes, especially copy_hostent and dlopen on MacOS X.
The inclusion of eunit into OTP is great news! However, as mentioned
by Kevin Smith, eunit just doesn't work from OTP because eunit.hrl is
I also wish that the following bug fixes and enhancement were
included, so we wouldn't have to run patched versions on production
and test servers:
ei_decode_big just doesn't work for half of big nums.
ei_encode_big and ei_x_encode_big are missing.
ei_decode_fun just doesn't work.
calendar:local_time_to_universal_time_dst crashes on FreeBSD with TZ
set to UTC, and maybe in other conditions.
eunit to generate XML reports for easier integration with continuous
integration toolchains (e.g. maven-erlang).
Would it be possible to have a timeframe for those?
