 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.

 --- 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)

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15487    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-804

               Fixed bug in operator band of two negative operands
               causing erroneous result if the absolute value of one
               of the operands have the lowest N*W bits as zero and
               the other absolute value is not larger than N*W bits. N
               is an integer of 1 or larger and W is 32 or 64
               depending on word size.

 --- Improvements and New Features ---

  OTP-15430    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-237

               Added an optional ./configure flag to compile the
               emulator with spectre mitigation:

               Note that this requires a recent version of GCC with
               support for spectre mitigation and the
               --mindirect-branch=thunk flag, such as 8.1.

 Full runtime dependencies of erts- kernel-5.0, sasl-3.0.1,
