 Check out the git tag OTP-, and build a full OTP system
 including documentation. Apply one or more applications from this
 build as patches to your installation using the 'otp_patch_apply'
 tool. For information on install requirements, see descriptions for
 each application version below.

 --- compiler- ------------------------------------------------

 The compiler- application can be applied independently of
 other applications on a full OTP 18 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-14522    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-48

               Fail labels on guard BIFs weren't taken into account
               during an optimization pass, and a bug in the
               validation pass sometimes prevented this from being
               noticed when a fault occurred.

 Full runtime dependencies of compiler- crypto-3.6, erts-7.0,
 hipe-3.12, kernel-4.0, stdlib-2.5

 --- eldap- ---------------------------------------------------

 The eldap- application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 18 installation.

 --- Improvements and New Features ---

  OTP-14765    Application(s): eldap, jinterface

               Misc building environment updates

 Full runtime dependencies of eldap- asn1-3.0, erts-6.0,
 kernel-3.0, ssl-5.3.4, stdlib-2.0

 --- erts- ----------------------------------------------------

 The erts- application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 18 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-14491    Application(s): erts

               Fix performance bug in pre-allocators that could cause
               them to permanently fall back on normal more expensive
               memory allocation. Pre-allocators are used for quick
               allocation of short lived meta data used by messages
               and other scheduled tasks. Bug exists since OTP_R15B02.

  OTP-14514    Application(s): erts

               Fixed bug in operator bxor causing erroneuos result
               when one operand is a big *negative* integer with the
               lowest N*W bits as zero and the other operand not
               larger than N*W bits. N is an integer of 1 or larger
               and W is 32 or 64 depending on word size.

  OTP-14548    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-468, OTP-11997

               A timer internal bit-field used for storing scheduler
               id was too small. As a result, VM internal timer data
               structures could become inconsistent when using 1024
               schedulers on the system. Note that systems with less
               than 1024 schedulers are not effected by this bug.

               This bug was introduced in ERTS version 7.0 (OTP 18.0).

  OTP-14590    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-474

               Fixed bug in binary_to_term and binary_to_atom that
               could cause VM crash. Typically happens when the last
               character of an UTF8 string is in the range 128 to 255,
               but truncated to only one byte. Bug exists in
               binary_to_term since ERTS version 5.10.2 (OTP_R16B01)
               and binary_to_atom since ERTS version 9.0 (OTP-20.0).

 Full runtime dependencies of erts- kernel-4.0, sasl-2.4,

 --- ssh- -----------------------------------------------------

 Note! The ssh- application can *not* be applied independently
       of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 18 installation.

       On a full OTP 18 installation, also the following runtime
       dependency has to be satisfied:
       -- crypto- (first satisfied in OTP

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-14763    Application(s): ssh
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-74

               Trailing white space was removed at end of the
               hello-string. This caused interoperability problems
               with some other ssh-implementations (e.g OpenSSH 7.3p1
               on Solaris 11)

 Full runtime dependencies of ssh- crypto-, erts-6.0,
 kernel-3.0, public_key-0.22, stdlib-2.3
