[erlang-questions] Erlang/OTP R15B03 has been released
Wed Dec 5 17:30:33 CET 2012
After the release of R15B03 a very unfortunate bug in ssl:ssl_accept/2
(accept with timeout) was detected. This bug will have negative impact
on a number of popular http servers and server frameworks written in
We have because of this decided to release a corrected R15B03 release
which will be
visible under the tag OTP_R15B03-1 in the source repository at Github.
We will also produce new source tar files and new pre-built
executables for Windows.
In addition to this we will ask Erlang Solutions to produce new
packages for Mac OS X
and a number of Linux distributions.
When we make a new release we will also take the opportunity to make a
small change regarding the generation of crashdumps which makes it
100% compatible for users not using heart. More about that in the
We expect to have this ready later this week and will of course
announce it on this list.
