[erlang-questions] OTP R16B03 has been released
Wed Dec 11 18:15:43 CET 2013
Erlang/OTP R16B03 has been released.
OTP R16B03 is a service release with mostly a number of small corrections
and user contributions. But there are some new functions worth mentioning
as well, here are some of them:
- A new memory allocation feature called "super carrier" has been
introduced. It can for example be used for pre-allocation of all memory
that the runtime system should be able to use. It is enabled by passing the
+MMscs (size in MB) command line argument. For more information see the
documentation of the +MMsco, +MMscrfsd, +MMscrpm, +MMscs, +MMusac, and,
+Mlpm command line arguments in the erts_alloc(3) documentation.
- The LDAP client (eldap application) now supports the start_tls
operation. This upgrades an existing tcp connection to encryption using
TLS, see eldap:start_tls/2 and /3.
- The FTP client (inets application) now supports FTP over TLS (ftps).
