Talking about the hybrid heap erlang, I can mention that it is now
quite stable in the latest R10B releases and worth trying out.
Note, however, that garbage collection of the shared message area
is still a "stop-the-world" type of GC. The HiPE group is working
on an incremental GC for the message area, and it will probably be
included in R11B.


        erl -hybrid

to start the hybrid heap emulator.

The shared heap emulator will be discontinued.
