The buildpack at https://github.com/archaelus/heroku-buildpack-erlang
works with every release from R15B to R17B pre. The old one under
Heroku's own github account is deprecated and points to the one above.

Which OTP release to be used will be picked based on the
.preferred_otp_version file in your repository.

Regards,
Fred.
