Erlang/OTP 17.1 has been released.

Erlang/OTP 17.1 is a service release on the 17 track with mostly bug fixes,
but is does contain a number of new features and characteristics
improvements as well.

Some highlights of the release are:

   - crypto: Add aes_cfb8 cypher to crypto:block_encrypt and block_decrypt.
   - diameter: Add result code counters for CEA, DWA, and DPA.
   - erts: The following built in functions in the erlang and binary
   modules now bump an appropriate amount
   of reductions and yield when out of reductions:
   binary_to_list/1, binary_to_list/3, bitstring_to_list/1,
   iolist_to_binary/1, list_to_bitstring/1, binary:list_to_bin/1
   - hipe: Handle Maps instructions get_map_elements, put_map_assoc,
   put_map_exact in the HiPE native code compiler.
   - mnesia: The time for inserting locks for a transaction with large
   number of locks is reduced significantly.
   - ssh: Option max_sessions added to ssh:daemon/{2,3}.
   - stdlib: Add maps:get/3 to maps module. The function will return the
   supplied default value if the key does not exist in the map.
