[erlang-questions] Fwd: erldocs.com updated!

Hey Ola,

`diff -y otp_src_R1{4,6}B02/lib/stdlib/doc/src/gb_trees.xml | less` shows
that type information (and argument names) were removed moving from R14B02
to R16B02.

Maybe someone can hint to where this information was moved? as I
hope^Wbelieve it didn't just got trashed.

erldocs only provides a different compiled documentation. The source files
are still just those found under doc/src/*.xml and maintained by
Ericsson/the community.
Sorry but you (well, we both) will have to s/R16/R14/ the URL for now…


Cheers,
