The final release R7B of the Open Source Erlang is now available for
download from "http://www.erlang.org/download.html".

A short summary of changes since R6

  - The bit syntax, a language addition which can be used to construct
    binaries and to match binary patterns.

  - The new CORBA services cosNotification and cosTime. 

  - The new very capable cross reference tool Xref. 

  - The new application Comet which makes it possible to call COM
    objects from Erlang on the Windows platform.

  - A new interoperability guide whose purpose is to give the reader
    an orientation of the different interoperability mechanisms that
    can be used when integrating a program written in Erlang with a
    program written in another programming language, from the Erlang
    programmer's point of view.
