--- 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.
