Erlang/OTP R15B has been released.
This is a new major release of Erlang/OTP
This is a release with many interesting new features:
- Line number and filename information are now included in exception
backtraces. This information will be pretty-printed in the shell and used
in crash reports etc. In practice it will be much easier to find where
- The driver interface has been changed to enable 64-bit aware drivers.
Most importantly the return types for ErlDrvEntry callbacks 'call' and
'control' has been changed which require drivers to be changed.
- New in this release is the support for 64 bit Windows.
- CommonTest hooks are now in a final supported version.
- There is a new GUI tool in the observer application which integrates
pman, etop, appmon and tv into one tool. The tool does also contain
functions for activating tracing in an easy way.
- The Erlang distribution can now be run over the new SSL
