--- HIGHLIGHTS ------------------------------------------------------------
OTP-6505 There is a new escript program that can be used for writing
scripts in Erlang. Erlang scripts don't need to be compiled
and any arguments can be passed to them without risk that
they are interpreted by the Erlang system.
OTP-6546 Dialyzer (in the modes where either source or BEAM code which
contains debug_info is analyzed) spits out line information
for all discrepancies. This has been a major change, worth of
increasing the version number.
We warn users that *considerably* more discrepancies are
identified by this version of Dialyzer compared with previous
ones and applications. If, for some reason, warnings
generated by previous versions of Dialyzer are preferable,
the command line option --old_style can be employed.
