[erlang-questions] OTP R16B01 has been released
Thu Jun 20 12:48:20 CEST 2013
It seems crypto:sha/1 is now deprecated. I think it's to favor
crypto:hash/2, but the details are obscure there as the readme only
talks about a "new API". Can we get more info on what's been deprecated
and when was crypto:hash/2 or others added?
