I believe quite a few pieces of software depends on the (now old) version
number scheme of Erlang/OTP - R[Major-Version][AB][Minor-Version].  This has
been changed and may break some. (See OTP-11615 on 17.0-rc1 readme)

FYI kerl depended on the old version number scheme, so I've written a fix:
https://github.com/spawngrid/kerl/pull/61
(already merged: thx Yurii Rashkovskii!)

Checking the version number parsing functions especially on Erlang/OTP
release/build engineering tools will be needed.

And as always, many thanks to Kenneth and the OTP Release Team!
