Erlang/OTP R16B01 has been released.

OTP R16B01 is a service release with mostly a number of small corrections
and user contributions. But there are some new functions worth mentioning
as well, here are some of them:

   - Migration of memory carriers between allocator instances, when enabled
   it will result in reduced memory footprint when the memory load is unevenly
   distributed between scheduler specific allocator instances.
   - Interruptible term_to_binary, (thanks to Erik Stenman)
   - Added the +sfwi <interval> Scheduler Forced Wakeup Interval
   - All crypto functions except the block chipers will now chunk large
   input into several calls to avoid blocking the scheduler for too long.
   - Elliptic curve support in crypto, ssl and ssh(thanks to Andreas
   - Lift static limitation (FD_SETSIZE) for file descriptors on Mac OS X.
   (thanks to Anthony Ramine)
   - Removed a lock around GC statistics counter
   - Many small improvements and in Diameter
