Erlang/OTP 19.2 is the second service release for the 19 major release.

The service release contains mostly bug fixes and characteristics 
improvements.

Some highlights for 19.2

  * STDLIB: The new behaviour gen_statem has been improved with 3 new
    features: the possibility to use old style non-proxy timeouts
    for gen_statem:call/2,3, state entry code, and state
    timeouts. These are backwards compatible. Minor code and
    documentation improvements has been performed including a
    borderline semantics correction of timeout zero handling.

  * SSL: Experimental version of DTLS. It is runnable but not complete
    and cannot be considered reliable for production usage. To use
    DTLS add the option {protocol, dtls} to ssl:connect and ssl:listen.

  * SSH: Extended the option silently_accept_hosts for ssh:connect to
    make it possible for the client to check the SSH host key
    fingerprint string. Se the reference manual for SSH.

  * ~40 contributions since the previous service release OTP 19.1
