Hi!

I hereby announce Erlang UUID, a library for your UUID needs
implemented in Erlang. Currently at version 0.3.2 the library implements
most of RFC 4122 (variant 1 0, versions 1, 3, 4, and 5). There are a few
utility functions: pretty-printing, conversion, creating UUID URNs and also
for checking UUID version, variant, and validity.

Erlang UUID is free software released under GPLv3+ and source code
is available at gitorious (mirrored on github). [1,2]

Patches are welcome of course!

Shoutout go to Bip Thelin who implemented UUIDv5!
