Erlang/OTP R15B03 has been released. This is the third service release for

This release mainly contains a number of bug fixes as well as smaller user
contributions (but as
usual there are some new functionality as well).

One thing worth to mention is a bugfix regarding the use of  the "-heart"
in combination with the Erlang crash dump function.
To solve the problem that heart quite often will kill the Erlang VM before
the crashdump is completed we have been forced to
introduce a small potential incompatibility. The incompatibility is that
the environment
variable ERL_CRASH_DUMP_SECONDS must be set in order to get any Erlang
crash dump at all.
See the readme file and the documentation for more details.
