Sad news Roberto.

Anyway, thousands thanks for Misultin and hope you'll be still present to help the community (if needed).

Regards,
Zabrane

This is why Misultin's current 'state of the art' has been frozen in the latest tag, v0.9, to support all the companies currently using Misultin in their production environment. I'm here to provide help, if needed, in moving away from it. Thus, this server should be robust and stable enough to continue serving your needs for some time.

It's hard enough to let one 'child' like this one go, but I believe it's best for the whole Erlang community. There are many ways to try to help each other in the community, I believe this decision is now for the better.

Cowboy has a very interesting approach since it allows to use multiple TCP and UDP protocols on top of a common acceptor pool. It is a very modern approach, is very actively maintained and many projects are starting to be built around it.
