> Erlang/OTP 24 is a new major release with new features, improvements as
> well as a few incompatibilities. Some of the new
> features are highlighted below.
> Highlights erts, kernel, stdlib
> The BeamAsm JIT-compiler has been added to Erlang/OTP and will give a
> significant performance boost for many applications.
> The JIT-compiler is enabled by default on most x86 64-bit platforms
> that have a C++ compiler that can compile C++17.
> To verify that a JIT enabled emulator is running you can use
> A compatibility adaptor for gen_tcp to use the new socket API has been
> implemented (gen_tcp_socket).
> Extended error information for failing BIF calls as proposed in EEP 54
> has been implemented.
> Process aliases as outlined by EEP 53 has been introduced.
> - Compiler warnings and errors now include column numbers in addition
> to line numbers.
> - Variables bound between the keywords 'try' and 'of' can now be used
> in the clauses following the 'of' keyword
> (that is, in the success case when no exception was raised).
> Add support for FTPES (explicit FTP over TLS).
> - Support for the "early data" feature for TLS 1.3 servers and clients.
> - Make TLS handshakes in Erlang distribution concurrent.
> - The application has been completely rewritten in order
> to use wxWidgets version 3 as its base.
> - Added support for wxWebView.
> - EDoc is now capable of emitting EEP-48 doc chunks. This means that,
> with some configuration, community projects
> can now provide documentation for shell_docs the same way that OTP
> libraries did since OTP 23.0.
> For more details about new features and potential incompatibilities see

> Online documentation can be browsed here:
> The Erlang/OTP source can also be found at GitHub on the official Erlang
