  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 19 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

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

  Note! The erts- application can *not* be applied independently
        of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 19 installation.

        On a full OTP 19 installation, also the following runtime
        dependency has to be satisfied:
        -- sasl-3.0.1 (first satisfied in OTP 19.1)

   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).

   OTP-14612    Application(s): erts

                Fix bug causing VM crash when a module with -on_load
                directive is loaded while erlang:trace(on_load, ...) is

   OTP-14661    Application(s): erts
                Related Id(s): ERIERL-80

                Fixed bug that could cause a VM crash when a corrupt
                message is received on distribution channel from other
