  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  --- common_test-1.10.1 ----------------------------------------------
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  Note! The common_test-1.10.1 application can *not* be applied
        independently of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 17
        installation.

        On a full OTP 17 installation, also the following runtime
        dependency has to be satisfied:
        -- test_server-3.7.1 (first satisfied in OTP 17.1)


  --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

   OTP-12643    Application(s): common_test

                A fault in the Common Test logger process, that caused
                the application to crash when running on a long name
                node, has been corrected.


   OTP-12688    Application(s): common_test
                Related Id(s): seq12818

                A 'wait_for_prompt' option in ct_telnet:expect/3 has
                been introduced which forces the function to not return
                until a prompt string has been received, even if other
                expect patterns have already been found.


   OTP-12697    Application(s): common_test, test_server
                Related Id(s): seq12848

                If the last expression in a test case causes a timetrap
                timeout, the stack trace is ignored and not printed to
                the test case log file. This happens because the
                {Suite,TestCase,Line} info is not available in the
                stack trace in this scenario, due to tail call
                elimination. Common Test has been modified to handle
                this situation by inserting a
                {Suite,TestCase,last_expr} tuple in the correct place
                and printing the stack trace as expected.


   OTP-12698    Application(s): common_test
                Related Id(s): seq12844

                Fixed a buffer problem in ct_netconfc which could cause
                that some messages where buffered forever.


   OTP-12704    Application(s): common_test, erts
                Related Id(s): OTP-10922

                The VTS mode in Common Test has been modified to use a
                private version of the Webtool application
                (ct_webtool).


   OTP-12707    Application(s): common_test
                Related Id(s): seq12846

                Add possibility to add user capabilities in
                ct_netconfc:hello/3.


  Full runtime dependencies of common_test-1.10.1: compiler-5.0,
  crypto-3.3, debugger-4.0, erts-6.0, inets-5.10, kernel-3.0,
  runtime_tools-1.8.14, sasl-2.4, snmp-4.25.1, ssh-3.0.1, stdlib-2.0,

  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  --- diameter-1.9.1 --------------------------------------------------
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  The diameter-1.9.1 application can be applied independently of other
  applications on a full OTP 17 installation.

  --- Known Bugs and Problems ---

   OTP-12642    Application(s): diameter

                Don't leave extra bit in decoded AVP data.

                OTP-12074 in OTP 17.3 missed one case: a length error
                on a trailing AVP unknown to the dictionary in
                question.


   OTP-12654    Application(s): diameter
                Related Id(s): seq12851

                Don't confuse Result-Code and Experimental-Result

                The errors field of a decoded diameter_packet record
                was populated with a Result-Code AVP when an
                Experimental-Result containing a 3xxx Result-Code was
                received in an answer not setting the E-bit. The
                correct AVP is now extracted from the incoming message.


   OTP-12701    Application(s): diameter

                Don't count on unknown Application Id.

                OTP-11721 in OTP 17.1 missed the case of an Application
                Id not agreeing with that of the dictionary in
                question, causing counters to be accumulated on keys
                containing the unknown id.


  Full runtime dependencies of diameter-1.9.1: erts-6.0, kernel-3.0,
  ssl-5.3.4, stdlib-2.0


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  --- erts-6.4.1 ------------------------------------------------------
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  The erts-6.4.1 application can be applied independently of other
  applications on a full OTP 17 installation.

  --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

   OTP-12704    Application(s): common_test, erts
                Related Id(s): OTP-10922

                The VTS mode in Common Test has been modified to use a
                private version of the Webtool application
                (ct_webtool).

  stdlib-2.0


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  --- snmp-5.1.2 ------------------------------------------------------
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  The snmp-5.1.2 application can be applied independently of other
  applications on a full OTP 17 installation.

  --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

   OTP-12669    Application(s): snmp
                Related Id(s): seq12841

                A bug in the SNMP Agent has been corrected; when
                opening a port using the command line argument
                -snmpa_fd the Port should be 0 when calling
                gen_udp:open.

                A bug in the SNMP manager has been corrected; it should
                not look at the -snmp_fd command line argument, but
                instead at -snmpm_fd.


  --- Improvements and New Features ---

   OTP-12452    Application(s): snmp

                Improved cryptocraphic capability.


  Full runtime dependencies of snmp-5.1.2: crypto-3.3, erts-6.0,
  kernel-3.0, mnesia-4.12, runtime_tools-1.8.14, stdlib-2.0


  ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  --- test_server-3.8.1 -----------------------------------------------
  ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  Note! The test_server-3.8.1 application can *not* be applied
        independently of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 17
        installation.

        On a full OTP 17 installation, also the following runtime
        dependency has to be satisfied:
        -- syntax_tools-1.6.16 (first satisfied in OTP 17.1.1)


  --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

   OTP-12697    Application(s): common_test, test_server
                Related Id(s): seq12848

                If the last expression in a test case causes a timetrap
                timeout, the stack trace is ignored and not printed to
                the test case log file. This happens because the
