erlang: Update to 22.2.8

This brings us up to the latest patch release for this branch before freeze...

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-16457    Application(s): diameter

               The possibility of choosing a handler process for an
               incoming Diameter request with a configured MFA was
               documented in OTP 20.0, but counters (with
               {traffic_counters, true}) were not incremented when
               this process was on a remote node. Counters are now
               incremented on the node that configures the transport
               in question.

               Introduced in OTP 21.3.


  OTP-16459    Application(s): diameter

               Transport options differing from those passed to
               diameter:add_transport/2 were used in several
               situations: when starting a transport process after
               connect_timer expiry after an initial connection
               attempt has failed, when starting a transport process
               after a connection has been accepted, when sending
               events, when returning options in
               diameter:service_info/2, and possibly more. In
               particular, the following configuration options to
               diameter:add_transport/2 were dropped:
               avp_dictionaries, incoming_maxlen, spawn_opt,
               strict_mbit.

               Moreover, any service options mistakenly passed to
               diameter:add_transport/2 were interpreted as such,
               instead of being ignored as the documentation states,
               with the consequence that outgoing and incoming
               requests saw different values of some options, some
               were always taken from transport options, and others
               from service options.

               diameter:add_transport/2 must be called in new code for
               the fix to have effect.

               Introduced in OTP 20.1.

erlang: Update to 22.1.8

This release fixes one bug in erts.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-16301    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-1079

               Large amounts of quickly executed dirty work could
               cause heavy contention on an internal spin lock. The
               spin lock was replaced by a mutex which behaves much
               better under these conditions.

erlang: Update to 22.1.7

Potential Incompatibilities

    Mnesia: Transactions with sticky locks could with async_asym transactions be committed in the wrong order, since asym transactions are spawned on the remote nodes. To fix this bug the communication protocol between mnesia nodes had to be updated, thus mnesia will no longer be able to connect to nodes earlier than mnesia-4.14 ,first realeased in OTP-19.0.
    Stdlib: Debugging of time-outs in gen_statem has been improved. Starting a time-out is now logged in sys:log and sys:trace. Running time-outs are visible in server crash logs, and with sys:get_status. Due to this system events {start_timer, Action, State} and {insert_timout, Event, State} have been added, which may surprise tools that rely on the format of these events. New features: The EventContent of a running time-out can be updated with {TimeoutType, update, NewEventContent}. Running time-outs can be cancelled with {TimeoutType, cancel} which is more readable than using Time = infinity.{rel, Name, Vsn, RelApps, Opts}.

Highlights

Compiler:

    erlc can now automatically use a compile server to avoid starting an Erlang system for each file to be compiled in a multi-file project. See the documentation for how to enable it.

Standard libraries:

    SSL: Basic support for TLS 1.3 Client for experimental use. For more information see the Standards Compliance chapter of the User's Guide.
    crypto: The Message Authentication Codes (MAC) CMAC, HMAC and Poly1305 are unified into common functions in the New Crypto API. See the manual for CRYPTO. cipher_info/1 functions returns maps with information about the hash or cipher in the argument.

erlang: Update to 22.0.7

Erlang/OTP 22 is a new major release with new features and improvements as well as incompatibilities.

For a deeper dive into the hightligts of the OTP 22 release, you can read our blog here:

http://blog.erlang.org/OTP-22-Highlights/

Potential Incompatibilities

    gen_* behaviours: If logging of the last N messages through sys:log/2,3 is active for the server, this log is included in the terminate report.
    reltool: A new element, Opts, can now be included in a rel tuple in the reltool release specific configuration format: {rel, Name, Vsn, RelApps, Opts}.
    All external pids/ports/refs created by erlang:list_to_pid and similar functions now compare equal to any other pid/port/ref with same number from that node.
    The old legacy erl_interface library is deprecated as of OTP 22, and will be removed in OTP 23. This does not apply to the ei library.
    VxWorks is deprecated as of OTP 22 and will be removed in OTP 23.

Erts:

    Support for Erlang Distribution protocol to split the payload of large signals into several fragments.
    ETS option write_concurrency now also effects and improves scalability of ordered_set tables.
    The length/1 BIF used to calculate the length of the list in one go without yielding, even if the list was very long. Now it yields when called with long lists.
    A new (still experimental) module socket is introduced. It is implemented as a NIF and the idea is that it shall be as "close as possible" to the OS level socket interface.
    Added the NIF function enif_term_type, which helps avoid long sequences of enif_is_xyz by returning the type of the given term. This is especially helpful for NIFs that serialize terms, such as JSON encoders, where it can improve both performance and readability.

Compiler:

    The compiler has been rewritten to internally use an intermediate representation based on Static Single Assignment (SSA). The new intermediate representation makes more optimizations possible.
        The binary matching optimizations are now applicable in many more circumstances than before.
        Type optimizations are now applied across local function calls, and will remove a lot more redundant type tests than before.
    All compiler options that can be given in the source file can now be given in the option list on the command line for erlc.
    In OTP 22, HiPE (the native code compiler) is not fully functional. The reasons for this are new BEAM instructions for binary matching that the HiPE native code compiler does not support. If erlc is invoked with the +native option, and if any of the new binary matching instructions are used, the compiler will issue a warning and produce a BEAM file without native code.

Standard libraries:

    Cover now uses the counters module instead of ets for updating counters. The new function cover:local_only/0 allows running Cover in a restricted but faster local-only mode. The increase in speed will vary depending on the type of code being cover-compiled, as an example the compiler test suite runs more than twice as fast with the new Cover.
    A simple socket API is provided through the socket module. This is a low level API that does *not* replace gen_[tcp|udp|sctp]. It is intended to *eventually* replace the inet driver. It also provides a basic API that facilitates the implementation of other protocols than TCP, UDP and SCTP. Known issues are; No support for the Windows OS (currently), a small term leakage. This feature will be classed as experimental in OTP 22.
    SSL: now uses the new logger API, including log levels and verbose debug logging.
    SSL: Basic support for TLS 1.3 Server for experimental use.
    crypto: The new hash_info/1 and cipher_info/1 functions returns maps with information about the hash or cipher in the argument.

lang/erlang: Update to 21.3.6

Highlights from erlang 21.2 to 21.3:

    Kernel:
        The standard logger handler, logger_std_h, now has a new internal
        feature for log rotation. For full information see the documentation.

    SSL:
        The Reason part of the error return from the functions connect and
        handshake has a better and documented format. This is a potential
        incompatibility. See the documentation.
        Refactoring of state handling has improved the TLS application data
        throughput and reduced CPU overhead
        Code optimizations has reduced CPU load for encryption/decryption,
        especially for Erlang's distribution protocol over TLS
        Now supports active N

    Erl_interface:
        Support for plugin of a user supplied socket implementation has been added.

    OTP:
        The HTML reference documentation now shows the OTP version where
        modules and functions were first introduced. Versions of OTP older than R13B04 is not shown in the reference
        documentation

               Fix bug where doing a gen_tcp:send on a socket with
               delay_send set to true could cause a segfault if the
               other side closes the connection.

               Bug was introduced in erts-10.2 (OTP-21.2).


  OTP-15537    Application(s): erts

               Fix a race condition when a port program closes that
               could result in the next started port to hang during
               startup.

               When this fault happens the following error is normally
               (but not always) logged:

               =ERROR REPORT==== 14-Jan-2019::10:45:52.868246 ===

               An optimization that avoided allocation of a stack
               frame for some case expressions was introduced in OTP
               21. (ERL-504/OTP-14808) It turns out that in rare
               circumstances, this optimization is not safe.
               Therefore, this optimization has been disabled.

               A similar optimization will be included in OTP 22 in a
               safe way.

               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.

  OTP-13468    Application(s): erts, sasl

               New counters and atomics modules supplies access to
               highly efficient operations on mutable fixed word sized
               variables.


  OTP-14669    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): PR-1989

               There is a new module persistent_term that implements a
               term storage suitable for terms that are frequently
               used but never or infrequently updated. Lookups are
               done in constant time without copying the terms.


  OTP-15094    Application(s): ssh
               Related Id(s): OTP-15419

               Added public key methods ssh-ed25519 and ssh-ed448.

               Requires OpenSSL 1.1.1 or higher as cryptolib under the
               OTP application crypto.


  OTP-15449    Application(s): ssl

               *** POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITY ***

               ssl now uses active n internally to boost performance.
               Old active once behavior can be restored by setting
               application variable see manual page for ssl
               application (man 6).


  OTP-15475    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-229

               Add a new pollset that is made to handle sockets that
               use {active, true} or {active, N}. The new pollset will
               not be polled by a pollthread, but instead polled by a
               normal scheduler.

               This change was made because of the overhead associated
               with constantly having to re-apply the ONESHOT
               mechanism on fds that all input events were
               interesting.

               The new pollset is only active on platforms that
               support concurrent kernel poll updates, i.e. Linux and
               BSD.


 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
 --- POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITIES -------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  OTP-15364    Application(s): kernel

               A new function, logger:update_handler_config/3 is
               added, and the handler callback changing_config now has
               a new argument, SetOrUpdate, which indicates if the
               configuration change comes from set_handler_config/2,3
               or update_handler_config/2,3.

               This allows the handler to consistently merge the new
               configuration with the old (if the change comes from
               update_handler_config/2,3) or with the default (if the
               change comes from set_handler_config/2,3).

               The built-in handlers logger_std_h and
               logger_disk_log_h are updated accordingly. A bug which
               could cause inconsistency between the handlers'
               internal state and the stored configuration is also
               corrected.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15400    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-759

               Fixed a rare internal consistency failure caused by a
               bug in the beam_jump pass. (Thanks to Simon Cornish for
               reporting this bug.)


  OTP-15435    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-778

               The compiler could fail with an internal consistency
               check failure when compiling code that used the
               is_function/2 BIF.


  OTP-15437    Application(s): compiler, stdlib
               Related Id(s): ERL-762

               When an external fun was used, warnings for unused
               variables could be suppressed.


  OTP-15481    Application(s): compiler

               The compiler would crash when compiling an after block
               that called erlang:raise/3 like this:
               erlang:raise(Class, Stacktrace, Stacktrace)


 --- Improvements and New Features ---

  OTP-15245    Application(s): compiler, stdlib
               Related Id(s): ERL-706

               When specified, the +{source,Name} option will now
               override the actual file name in stack traces, instead
               of only affecting the return value of
               Mod:module_info().

               The +deterministic flag will also affect stack traces
               now, omitting all path information except the file
               name, fixing a long-standing issue where deterministic
               builds required deterministic paths.

 Note! The erts-10.2 application can *not* be applied independently of
       other applications on an arbitrary OTP 21 installation.

       On a full OTP 21 installation, also the following runtime
       dependencies have to be satisfied:
       -- kernel-6.1 (first satisfied in OTP 21.1)
       -- sasl-3.3 (first satisfied in OTP 21.2)

  OTP-12242    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-561

               When a process was waiting for a TCP socket send
               operation to complete, and another process closed the
               socket during that send, the sending process could
               hang. This bug has now been corrected.


  OTP-15343    Application(s): erts, stdlib
               Related Id(s): PR-1962

               Document bit_size in match specifications and allow it
               in ets:fun2ms.


  OTP-15346    Application(s): erts

               Fixed bug in ets:select_replace when called with a
               fully bound key could cause a following call to
               ets:next or ets:prev to crash the emulator or return
               invalid result.


  OTP-15360    Application(s): erts

               When a module has been purged from memory, any literals
               belonging to that module will be copied to all
               processes that hold references to them. The max heap
               size limit would be ignored in the garbage collection
               initiated when copying literals to a process. If the
               max heap size was exceeded, the process would typically
               be terminated in the following garbage collection.
               Corrected to terminate the process directly if copying
               a literal would exceed the max heap size.


  OTP-15389    Application(s): erts

               Fix compilation of run_erl on Solaris 11.4 and later.


  OTP-15436    Application(s): erts

               Fixed a bug where lists:reverse/1-2 could use far too
               many reductions. This bug was introduced in OTP 21.1.


  OTP-15446    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): PR-2024

               Fixed a bug where a dirty scheduler could stay awake
               forever if a distribution entry was removed as part of
               a dirty GC.


  OTP-15450    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-229

               Fix microstate accounting handing in various places.
               Most importantly the GC states when the GC is run on a
               dirty scheduler are now managed correctly.


  OTP-15461    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-784

               Fixed bug in file:sendfile when the send operation
               failed. For sockets in active modes it could cause
               emulator crash or a hanging call. For sockets with
               {active,false} an unexpected {inet_reply, _, _} message
               could be sent to the calling process. The bug exists
               since OTP-21.0.


  OTP-15465    Application(s): erts

               The erts configure script has been updated to reject
               any CFLAGS that does not have -O. This in order to
               prevent the common mistake of forgetting to add -O2 to
               custom CFLAGS.


  OTP-15474    Application(s): erts, stdlib
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-229

               Added the nopush option for TCP sockets, which
               corresponds to TCP_NOPUSH on *BSD and TCP_CORK on
               Linux.

               This is also used internally in file:sendfile to reduce
               latency on subsequent send operations.

               The logger ets table did not have the read_concurrency

  OTP-15466    Application(s): kernel
               Related Id(s): ERL-788

               During system start, logger has a simple handler which
               prints to stdout. After the kernel supervision is
               started, this handler is removed and replaced by the
               default handler. Due to a bug, logger earlier issued a
               debug printout saying it received an unexpected
               message, which was the EXIT message from the simple
               handler's process. This is now corrected. The simple
               handler's process now unlinks from the logger process
               before terminating.


  OTP-15469    Application(s): kernel

               The logger handler logger_std_h would not re-create
               it's log file if it was removed. Due to this it could
               not be used with tools like 'logrotate'. This is now
               corrected.

               Literals such as #{"one"=>1} dumped to a crash dump
               would cause crashdump_viewer to crash.


  OTP-15377    Application(s): observer

               crashdump_viewer would sometimes crash when processing
               a dump which was truncated in the literals area. This
               is now corrected.


  OTP-15391    Application(s): observer

               Since OTP-20.2, crashdump_viewer was very slow when
               opening a crash dump with many processes. An ets:select
               per process could be removed, which improved the
               performance a lot.

               A bug when parsing heap data in a crashdump caused
               crashdump_viewer to crash when multiple Yc lines
               referenced the same reference counted binary. This is
               now corrected.

               A bug where the socket option 'pktoptions' caused a
               read of uninitialized memory has been fixed. Would
               cause malfunction on FreeBSD.


  OTP-15318    Application(s): erts

               Fixed a memory leak on errors when reading files.

               Correct alert handling with new TLS sender process,
               from ssl-9.0.2. CLOSE ALERTS could under some
               circumstances be encoded using an incorrect cipher
               state. This would cause the peer to regard them as
               unknown messages.

               socket option {packet, 1|2|3|4} with ssl:setopts/2 the
               option must internally be propagated to the sender
               process as well as the reader process as this
               particular option also affects the data to be sent.

 --- HIGHLIGHTS ------------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

  OTP-15133    Application(s): ssh
               Related Id(s): OTP-15240

               The key exchange methods
               'curve25519-sha256@libssh.org', 'curve25519-sha256' and
               'curve448-sha512' are implemented. The last two are
               defined in
               https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-curdle-ssh-curves

               They all depends on that OpenSSL 1.1.1 or higher is
               used as cryptolib.


  OTP-15134    Application(s): crypto, public_key

               The typing in the CRYPTO and PUBLIC_KEY applications
               are reworked and a few mistakes are corrected.

               The documentation is now generated from the typing and
               some clarifications are made.

               A new chapter on Algorithm Details such as key sizes
               and availability is added to the CRYPTO User's Guide.


  OTP-15145    Application(s): erts, kernel
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-187

               The socket options recvtos, recvttl, recvtclass and
               pktoptions have been implemented in the socket modules.
               See the documentation for the gen_tcp, gen_udp and inet
               modules. Note that support for these in the runtime
               system is platform dependent. Especially for pktoptions
               which is very Linux specific and obsoleted by the RFCs
               that defined it.


  OTP-15209    Application(s): ssh
               Related Id(s): OTP-15164

               The cipher 'chacha20-poly1305@openssh.com' is now
               supported if OpenSSL 1.1.1 or higher is used as
               cryptolib.

 The asn1-5.0.7 application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 21 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-14440    Application(s): asn1
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-220

               A bug in ASN.1 BER decoding has been fixed. When
               decoding a recursively enclosed term the length was not
               propagated to that term decoding, so if the length of
               the enclosed term was longer than the enclosing that
               error was not detected.

               A hard coded C stack limitation for decoding recursive
               ASN.1 terms has been introduced. This is currently set
               to 8 kWords giving a nesting depth of about 1000
               levels. Deeper terms can not be decoded, which should
               not be much of a real world limitation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15307    Application(s): common_test

               The Logger handler cth_log_redirect earlier called the
               report callback (report_cb) before calling the logger
               formatter. In some cases this would fail, since
               cth_log_redirect could not handle report callbacks with
               two arguments. This is now corrected, so only the
               formatter will call the report callback.

  OTP-15186    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-665

               Fixed a bug that prevented certain variable-sized
               binary comprehensions from compiling.


  OTP-15188    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-658

               When compiling from Core Erlang, funs created in
               certain expressions that were only used for their
               side-effects were subtly broken.


  OTP-15218    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-684

               There could be an internal consistency failure when a
               receive was nested in a try/catch.


  OTP-15219    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-689

               In rare circumstances, the matched out tail of a binary
               could be the entire original binary.


  OTP-15227    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-699

               When is_map_key/2 was used in a guard together with the
               not/1 or or/2 operators, the error behavior could be
               wrong when is_map_key/2 was passed a non-map as the
               second argument.

               In rare circumstances, compiling code that uses
               is_map_key/2 could cause an internal consistency check
               failure.


  OTP-15235    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-703

               The RSA options rsa_mgf1_md, rsa_oaep_md, and
               rsa_oaep_label were always disabled. They will now be
               enabled when a suitable cryptolib is used.

               They are still experimental and may change without
               prior notice.


  OTP-15283    Application(s): crypto

               The ciphers aes_ige256 and blowfish_cbc had naming
               issues in crypto:next_iv/2.


  OTP-15303    Application(s): crypto

               the RSA_SSLV23_PADDING is disabled if LibreSSL is used
               as cryptlib. This is due to compilation problems.

               This will be investigated further in the future.

               Conversion of (agent) Audit Trail Log (ATL) failed due
               to invalid log entries.

               The conversion aborted completely midway because the
               ATL contained invalid entries. The conversion has been
               improved so that it now firstly handles encountered
               errors and write an informative message (into the
               converted stream) and secondly keeps count of the
               number of successful or failed entry conversions. See
               log_to_txt for more info.

               The reason the ATL contained invalid entries have also
               been fixed. The reason was that for some outgoing
               messages (not response):

               -- encrypted (v3 messages)

               Was logged "as is" (encrypted) without the info to

               Extended the undocumented ssh_dbg debug module with an

  --- POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITIES -------------------------------------

   OTP-15225    Application(s): erts

                Fixed a bug causing some Erlang references to be
                inconsistently ordered. This could for example cause
                failure to look up certain elements with references as
                keys in search data structures. This bug was introduced
                in R13B02.

   OTP-15204    Application(s): compiler
                Related Id(s): ERL-679

                Fixed an issue where files compiled with the

               In rare cases involving matching of binary literal
               strings, the compiler could optimize away code that
               should be executed.

                As of ERTS version 10.0 (OTP 21.0) the erl_child_setup
                program, which creates port programs, ignores TERM
                signals. This setting was unintentionally inherited by
                port programs. Handling of TERM signals in port
                programs has now been restored to the default behavior.
                That is, terminate the process.

   OTP-15296    Application(s): erts
                Related Id(s): ERIERL-226, OTP-15279

                The fix made for OTP-15279 in erts-10.07 (OTP-21.0.8)
                was not complete. It could cause a new connection
                attempt to be incorrectly aborted in certain cases.
                This fix will amend that flaw.

   OTP-15275    Application(s): erts

                A process could get stuck in an infinite rescheduling
                loop between normal and dirty schedulers. This bug was
                introduced in ERTS version 10.0.

                Thanks to Maxim Fedorov for finding and fixing this
                issue.

                Garbage collection of a distribution entry could cause
                an emulator crash if net_kernel had not brought
                previous connection attempts on it down properly.

   OTP-15237    Application(s): erts

                A race between termination of a process and resume of
                the same process via erlang:resume_process/1 could
                cause the VM to crash. This bug was introduced in erts

                when a process was rescheduled between a dirty and a
                normal scheduler.

   OTP-15223    Application(s): erts

                Fixed a bug which caused an emulator crash when
                enif_send() was called by a NIF that executed on a
                dirty scheduler. The bug was either triggered when the
                NIF called enif_send() without a message environment,
                or when the process executing the NIF was send traced.

  OTP-15233    Application(s): crypto

               Update the crypto engine functions to handle multiple
               loads of an engine.

               engine_load/3/4 is updated so it doesn't add the engine
               ID to OpenSSLs internal list of engines which makes it
               possible to run the engine_load more than once if it
               doesn't contain global data.

               Added ensure_engine_loaded/2/3 which guarantees that
               the engine just is loaded once and the following calls
               just returns a reference to it. This is done by add the
               ID to the internal OpenSSL list and check if it is
               already registered when the function is called.

               Added ensure_engine_unloaded/1/2 to unload engines
               loaded with ensure_engine_loaded.

               Then some more utility functions are added.

               engine_add/1, adds the engine to OpenSSL internal list

               engine_remove/1, remove the engine from OpenSSL
               internal list

               engine_get_id/1, fetch the engines id

lang/erlang*: Update to 21.0

Potential Incompatibilities
- All Corba applications are now moved from the OTP repository
- A new Corba repository will be created https://github.com/erlang
- New applications ftp and tftp, moved from inets
- ssl no longer supports 3_DES cipher suites or RSA-key exchange
  cipher suites by default
- Erlang:monitor on a primitive node (erl_interface, jinterface, etc)
  will no longer fail with badarg exception. Instead a monitor will be
  created, but it will only supervise the connection to the node.

Erts:
- Enhanced IO scalability
- Support for usage of distribution controller processes for
  alternative transports, routing etc
- compact instructions on 64bit systems for code below 4GB 20% less
  memory for loaded code
- Rewrite of the efile-driver with NIFs and "Dirty schedulers"
  resulting in faster file operations
- non-smp VM removed
- link and monitor optimized for scalability
- os:getenv/putenv now work on thread-safe emulation. No longer in
  sync with libc getenv(3). Manual synchronization will be needed.

Compiler:
- Misc compiler optimizations including contributions from the Elixir
  team resulting in 10% improvements in benchmarks
- "Tuple calls" have been removed from the run-time system.
- Code such as f({ok, Val}) -> {ok, Val} is now automatically
  rewritten to f({ok, Val} = Tuple) -> Tuple. this reduces code size,
  execution time, and removed GC pressure.
- More information in stacktrace from a number of operators
- erlang:get_stacktrace/0 deprecated to be replaced with try ... catch
  C:R:Stacktrace -> ...
- Creation of small maps with literal keys optimized.
- A new predefined macro OTP_RELEASE and preprocessor directives -if
  and -elif

Security:
- DTLS is now supported in the SSL application
- Enhanced support for distribution over TLS
- "unsecure" ciphers removed from defaults in SSL and SSH.
- A new option value defined to facilitate implementing exec servers.
  Old option kept for compatibility, but now gives errors on stderror.

Standard libraries:
- New API for logging, logger
- New uri_string module for parsing URIs according to "The standard"
- New function lists:search(list,fun/1) -> {ok, Value} | false
- Changed default behaviour of .erlang loading. escript, erlc,
  dialyzer and typer no longer load an .erlang at all.

Update lang/erlang* to 20.1.

Some highlights for 20.1:

- crypto, public_key: Extend crypto and public_key functions sign and
  verify with:
  - support for RSASSA-PS padding for signatures and for saltlength
    setting
  - X9.31 RSA padding.

    mentioned in NIST SP 800-57 Part 1.
  - ripemd160 to be used for rsa signatures.

- A new tuple in crypto:supports/0 reports supported MAC algorithms.

- diameter:
  - Add service option decode_format to allow incoming messages to be
    decoded into maps instead of records.
  - Decode performance has been improved.
  - Add service/transport option avp_dictionaries to give better
    support for dictionaries only defining AVPs.

- erts: Upgraded the ERTS internal PCRE library from version 8.40 to
  version 8.41.

- erts, kernel, tools: Profiling with lock counting can now be fully
  toggled at runtime in the lock counting emulator (-emu_type lcnt).

- erts: The zlib module has been refactored and all its operations
  will now yield appropriately, allowing them to be used freely in
  concurrent applications.

- erts, tools: Add erlang:iolist_to_iovec/1, which converts an
  iolist() to an erlang:iovec(), which is suitable for use with
  enif_inspect_iovec().

- erts: Add new nif API functions for managing an I/O Queue.

- observer/crashdump_viewer:
  - Reading of crash dumps with many binaries is optimized.
  - A progress bar is shown when the detail view for a process is
    opened.
  - The cdv script now sets ERL_CRASH_DUMP_SECONDS=0 to avoid
    generating a new crash dump from the node running the Crashdump
    Viewer.

- observer: Add system statistics and limits to frontpage in observer.

- public_key, ssl**: Improved error propagation and reports

- ssh: A new option modify_algorithms is implemented. It enables
  specifying changes on the default algorithms list.

- tools/xref: The predefined Xref analysis locals_not_used now
  understands the -on_load() attribute and does not report unused
  functions.

- tools/fprof: When sampling multiple processes and analyzing with
  totals set to true, the output now sums together all caller and
  callee entries which concerns the same function.

Update lang/erlang* to 20.0.

Potential Incompatibilities
---------------------------

- ERTS:
  - The non SMP Erlang VM is deprecated and not built by default
  - Remove deprecated erlang:hash/2
  - erlang:statistics/1 with scheduler_wall_time now also includes
    info about dirty CPU schedulers.
  - The new purge strategy introduced in OTP 19.1 is mandatory and
    slightly incompatible for processes holding funs
  - The NIF library reload is not supported anymore.
  - Atoms can now contain arbitrary unicode characters which means
    that the DFLAG_UTF8_ATOMS capability in the distribution protocol
    must be supported if an OTP 20 node should accept the connection
    with another node or library.
- Asn1: Deprecated module and functions removed (asn1rt,
  asn1ct:encode/3 and decode/3)
- Ssh: client only option in a call to start a daemon will now fail

Highlights
----------

- Erts:
  - Dirty schedulers enabled and supported on VM with SMP support.
  - support for "dirty" BIFs and "dirty" GC.
  - erlang:garbage_collect/2 for control of minor or major GC
  - Erlang literals are no longer copied when sending messages.
  - Improved performance for large ETS tables, >256 entries (except
    ordered_set)
  - erlang:system_info/1 atom_count and atom_limit
  - Reduced memory pressure by converting sub-binaries to
    heap-binaries during GC
  - enif_select, map an external event to message
  - Improvements of timers internally in the VM resulting in reduced
    memory consumption and more efficient administration for timers
- Compiler:
  - Code generation for complicated guards is improved.
  - Warnings for repeated identical map keys. #{'a'=>1, 'b'=>2,
    'a'=>3} will warn for the repeated key a.
  - By default there is now a warning when export_all is used. Can be
    disabled
  - Pattern matching for maps is optimized
  - New option deterministic to omit path to source + options info the
    BEAM file.

    printed to facilitate debugging.
  - take/2 has been added to dict, orddict, and gb_trees.
  - take_any/2 has been added to gb_trees
  - erl_tar support for long path names and new file formats
  - asn1: the new maps option changes the representation of SEQUENCE
    to be maps instead of records
  - A TLS client will by default call

Update lang/erlang* to 19.3.

Some highlights for 19.3:

- crypto, ssh: The implementation of the key exchange algorithms
  diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha* are optimized, up to a factor of 11
  for the slowest ( = biggest and safest) group size.
- dialyzer: The peak memory consumption is reduced. Analyzing modules
  with binary construction with huge strings is now much faster.
- erts: A received SIGTERM signal to beam will generate a 'stop' message
  to the init process and terminate the Erlang VM nicely. This is
  equivalent to calling init:stop/0.
- kernel: The functions in the 'file' module that take a list of paths
  (e.g. file:path_consult/2) will now continue to search in the path if
  the path contains something that is not a directory.
- public_key: New function pkix_verify_hostname/2,3 Implements
  certificate hostname checking. See the manual and RFC 6125.
- public_key, ssh: The ssh host key fingerprint generation now also
  takes a list of algorithms and returns a list of corresponding
  fingerprints. See public_key:ssh_hostkey_fingerprint/2 and the option
  silently_accept_hosts in ssh:connect.
- ssl: Move PEM cache to a dedicated process, to avoid making the SSL
  manager process a bottleneck. This improves scalability of TLS
  connections.
- stdlib: filename:safe_relative_path/1 to sanitize a relative path has
  been added.

Update lang/erlang{,-doc,-man} to 19.2.

Erlang/OTP 19.2 is the second service release for the 19 major release.
The service release contains mostly bug fixes and characteristics
improvements.

Some highlights for 19.2

* STDLIB: The new behaviour gen_statem has been improved with 3 new
  features: the possibility to use old style non-proxy timeouts
  for gen_statem:call/2,3, state entry code, and state
  timeouts. These are backwards compatible. Minor code and
  documentation improvements has been performed including a
  borderline semantics correction of timeout zero handling.

* SSL: Experimental version of DTLS. It is runnable but not complete
  and cannot be considered reliable for production usage. To use
  DTLS add the option {protocol, dtls} to ssl:connect and ssl:listen.

* SSH: Extended the option silently_accept_hosts for ssh:connect to
  make it possible for the client to check the SSH host key
  fingerprint string. Se the reference manual for SSH.

* ~40 contributions since the previous service release OTP 19.1

Update lang/erlang to 18.1.

Some highlights of the release are:

- ssl: Add possibility to downgrade an SSL/TLS connection to a tcp
  connection, and give back the socket control to a user process.
- ssh: The following new key exchange algorithms are implemented:
  'ecdh-sha2-nistp256', 'ecdh-sha2-nistp384', 'ecdh-sha2-nistp521',
  'diffie-hellman-group14-sha1', 'diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha1'
  and 'diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256'. This raises the
  security level considerably.
- kernel,stdlib,sasl: A mechanism for limiting the amount of text
  that the built-in error logger events will produce has been
  introduced. It is useful for limiting both the size of log files
  and the CPU time used to produce them.

Update erlang to 18.0.

- Starting from 18.0 Erlang/OTP is released under the APL 2.0
- erts: The time functionality has been extended. This includes a new API
  for time, as well as "time warp" modes which alters the behavior when
  system time changes. You are strongly encouraged to use the new API
  instead of the old API based on erlang:now/0. erlang:now/0 has been
  deprecated since it is a scalability bottleneck.
- erts: Beside the API changes and time warp modes a lot of scalability
  and performance improvements regarding time management has been made
- erts: The previously introduced "eager check I/O" feature is now enabled
  by default.
- erts/compiler: enhanced support for maps. Big maps new uses a HAMT
  (Hash Array Mapped Trie) representation internally which makes them more
  efficient. There is now also support for variables as map keys.
- dialyzer: The -dialyzer() attribute can be used for suppressing warnings
  in a module by specifying functions or warning options.
- ssl: Remove default support for SSL-3.0 and added padding check
  for TLS-1.0 due to the Poodle vulnerability.
- ssl: Remove default support for RC4 cipher suites, as they are consider
  too weak.
- stdlib: Allow maps for supervisor flags and child specs
- stdlib: New functions in ets:
  - take/2. Works the same as ets:delete/2 but
            also returns the deleted object(s).
  - ets:update_counter/4 with a default object as
            argument

Update Erlang/OTP to R16B02.


R16B02 is the second maintenance release for the R16B major release.
You can find the README file for the release at
  http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R16B02.readme


R16B01 is the first maintenance release for the R16B major release.
You can find the README file for the release at
  http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R16B01.readme

Highlights for R16B01:

   OTP-10279  == erts ==

	      Support for migration of memory carriers between memory
	      allocator instances has been introduced.

	      By default this feature is not enabled and do not effect the
	      characteristics of the system. When enabled it has the
	      following impact on the characteristics of the system:

	      -- Reduced memory footprint when the memory load is unevenly
	      distributed between scheduler specific allocator instances.

	      -- Depending on the default allocaton strategy used on a
	      specific allocator there might or might not be a slight
	      performance loss.

	      -- When enabled on the fix_alloc allocator, a different
	      strategy for management of fix blocks will be used.

	      -- The information returned from
	      erlang:system_info({allocator, A}), and
	      erlang:system_info({allocator_sizes, A}) will be slightly
	      different when this feature has been enabled. An mbcs_pool
	      tuple will be present giving information about abandoned
	      carriers, and in the fix_alloc case no fix_types tuple will
	      be present.

	      For more information, see the documentation of the +M<S>acul
	      command line argument.

   OTP-11009  == ssl public_key crypto common_test dialyzer ssh stdlib snmp
	      inets ==

	      Integrate elliptic curve contribution from Andreas Schultz

	      In order to be able to support elliptic curve cipher suites
	      in SSL/TLS, additions to handle elliptic curve infrastructure
	      has been added to public_key and crypto.

	      This also has resulted in a rewrite of the crypto API to gain
	      consistency and remove unnecessary overhead. All OTP
	      applications using crypto has been updated to use the new
	      API.

	      Impact: Elliptic curve cryptography (ECC) offers equivalent
	      security with smaller key sizes than other public key
	      algorithms. Smaller key sizes result in savings for power,
	      memory, bandwidth, and computational cost that make ECC
	      especially attractive for constrained environments.

   OTP-11159  == erts ==

	      Lift static limitation (FD_SETSIZE) for file descriptors on
	      Mac OS X. (Thanks to Anthony Ramine)

Update to Erlang/OTP R16B (designated as 16.1 in pkgsrc).

R16B is a major new release of Erlang/OTP.

Detailed information on changes can be fetched at
http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R16B.readme

--- HIGHLIGHTS ----------------------------------------------------------

    OTP-7786  == ssh ==

	      Added User Guide for the SSH application

    OTP-9892  == erts ==

	      Process optimizations. The most notable:

	      -- New internal process table implementation allowing for
	      both parallel reads as well as writes. Especially read
	      operations have become really cheap. This reduce contention
	      in various situations. For example when, spawning processes,
	      terminating processes, sending messages, etc.

	      -- Optimizations of run queue management reducing contention.

	      -- Optimizations of process state changes reducing
	      contention.

	      These changes imply changes of the characteristics the
	      system. Most notable: changed timing in the system.

    OTP-9974  == erts ==

	      Non-blocking code loading. Earlier when an Erlang module was
	      loaded, all other execution in the VM were halted while the
	      load operation was carried out in single threaded mode. Now
	      modules are loaded without blocking the VM. Processes may
	      continue executing undisturbed in parallel during the entire
	      load operation. The load operation is completed by making the
	      loaded code visible to all processes in a consistent way with
	      one single atomic instruction. Non-blocking code loading will
	      improve realtime characteristics when modules are
	      loaded/upgraded on a running SMP system.

   OTP-10256  == inets ==

	      httpc: The HTTP client now supports HTTPS through proxies

   OTP-10336  == erts ==

	      Major port improvements. The most notable:

	      -- New internal port table implementation allowing for both
	      parallel reads as well as writes. Especially read operations
	      have become really cheap.This reduce contention in various
	      situations. For example when, creating ports, terminating
	      ports, etc.

	      -- Dynamic allocation of port structures. This allow for a
	      much larger maximum amount of ports allowed as a default. The
	      previous default of 1024 has been raised to 65536. Maximum
	      amount of ports can be set using the +Q command line flag of
	      erl(1). The previously used environment variable
	      ERL_MAX_PORTS has been deprecated and scheduled for removal
	      in OTP-R17.

	      -- Major rewrite of scheduling of port tasks. Major benefits
	      of the rewrite are reduced contention on run queue locks, and
	      reduced amount of memory allocation operations needed. The
	      rewrite was also necessary in order to make it possible to
	      schedule signals from processes to ports.

	      -- Improved internal thread progress functionality for easy
	      management of unmanaged threads. This improvement was
	      necessary for the rewrite of the port task scheduling.

	      -- Rewrite of all process to port signal implementations in
	      order to make it possible to schedule those operations. All
	      port operations can now be scheduled which allows for reduced
	      lock contention on the port lock as well as truly
	      asynchronous communication with ports.

	      -- Optimized lookup of port handles from drivers.

	      -- Optimized driver lookup when creating ports.

	      -- Preemptable erlang:ports/0 BIF.

	      -- Improving responsiveness by bumping reductions for a
	      process calling a driver callback directly.

	      These changes imply changes of the characteristics of the
	      system. The most notable:

	      -- Order of signal delivery -- The previous implementation of
	      the VM has delivered signals from processes to ports in a
	      synchronous stricter fashion than required by the language.
	      As of ERTS version 5.10, signals are truly asynchronously
	      delivered. The order of signal delivery still adheres to the
	      requirements of the language, but only to the requirements.
	      That is, some signal sequences that previously always were
	      delivered in one specific order may now from time to time be
	      delivered in different orders. This may cause Erlang programs
	      that have made false assumptions about signal delivery order
	      to fail even though they previously succeeded. For more
	      information about signal ordering guarantees, see the chapter
	      on communication in the ERTS user's guide. The +n command
	      line flag of erl(1) can be helpful when trying to find
	      signaling order bugs in Erlang code that have been exposed by
	      these changes.

	      -- Latency of signals sent from processes to ports -- Signals
	      from processes to ports where previously always delivered
	      immediately. This kept latency for such communication to a
	      minimum, but it could cause lock contention which was very
	      expensive for the system as a whole. In order to keep this
	      latency low also in the future, most signals from processes
	      to ports are by default still delivered immediately as long
	      as no conflicts occur. Such conflicts include not being able
	      to acquire the port lock, but also include other conflicts.
	      When a conflict occur, the signal will be scheduled for
	      delivery at a later time. A scheduled signal delivery may
	      cause a higher latency for this specific communication, but
	      improves the overall performance of the system since it
	      reduce lock contention between schedulers. The default
	      behavior of only scheduling delivery of these signals on
	      conflict can be changed by passing the +spp command line flag
	      to erl(1). The behavior can also be changed on port basis
	      using the parallelism option of the open_port/2 BIF.

	      -- Execution time of the erlang:ports/0 BIF -- Since
	      erlang:ports/0 now can be preempted, the responsiveness of
	      the system as a whole has been improved. A call to
	      erlang:ports/0 may, however, take a much longer time to
	      complete than before. How much longer time heavily depends on
	      the system load.

	      -- Reduction cost of calling driver callbacks -- Calling a
	      driver callback is quite costly. This was previously not
	      reflected in reduction cost at all. Since the reduction cost
	      now has increased, a process performing lots of direct driver
	      calls will be scheduled out more frequently than before.

	      Potential incompatibilities:

	      -- driver_send_term() has been deprecated and has been
	      scheduled for removal in OTP-R17. Replace usage of
	      driver_send_term() with usage of erl_drv_send_term().

	      -- driver_output_term() has been deprecated and has been
	      scheduled for removal in OTP-R17. Replace usage of
	      driver_output_term() with usage of erl_drv_output_term().

	      -- The new function erl_drv_busy_msgq_limits() has been added
	      in order to able to control management of port queues.

	      The driver API version has been bumped to 2.1 from 2.0 due to
	      the above changes in the driver API.

   OTP-10410  == asn1 ==

	      The options for the ASN.1 compiler has been drastically
	      simplified. The backend is chosen by using ber, per, or uper.
	      The options optimize, nif, and driver are no longer needed.
	      The old options will still work, but will issue a warning.

	      Another change is that generated encode/2 function will
	      always return a binary (some backends used to return an
	      iolist).

   OTP-10588  == asn1 ==

	      The ASN.1 compiler will now always include necessary run-time
	      functions in the generated Erlang modules (except for
	      asn1rt_nif which is still neeeded). If the option 'inline' is
	      used the ASN.1 compiler will generate a warning. But if
	      '{inline,OutputFile}' is use, the ASN.1 compiler will refuse
	      to compile the file. (Use a .set.asn file if you need to
	      remove the output file.)

	      The 'BIT STRING' type will now be decoded as Erlang
	      bitstrings by default. Use the new legacy_bit_string option
	      to encode as lists of ones and zeroes. (The
	      compact_bit_string option still works as before.)

	      Open types are now always returned as binaries (when there is
	      no information allowing them to be decoded).

--- POTENTIAL INCOMPATIBILITIES -----------------------------------------

    OTP-9052  == common_test ==

	      Removed depricated run_test program, use ct_run instead.

    OTP-9881  == common_test ==

	      It is now possible to let a test specification include other
	      test specifications. Included specs can either be joined with
	      the source spec (and all other joined specs), resulting in
	      one single test run, or they can be executed in separate test
	      runs. Also, a start flag/option, join_specs, has been
	      introduced, to be used in combination with the spec option.
	      With join_specs, Common Test can be told to either join
	      multiple test specifications, or run them separately. Without
	      join_specs, the latter behaviour is default. Note that this
	      is a change compared to earlier versions of Common Test,
	      where specifications could only be joined. More information
	      can be found in the Running Tests chapter in the User's Guide
	      (see the Test Specifications section).

   OTP-10117  == inviso ==

	      The inviso application has been removed.

   OTP-10170  == erts pman ==

	      Tuple funs (deprecated in R15B) are no longer supported.

   OTP-10195  == edoc ==

	      Since EDoc 0.7.7 (R14B02) separate values of union types can
	      be annotated. However, the parser has hitherto chosen not to
	      add the necessary parentheses due to backwards compatibility.

	      From this release on code traversing the output of
	      edoc_parser needs to take care of parentheses around separate
	      values of union types. Examples of such code are layout
	      modules and doclet modules.

   OTP-10336  == erts ==

	      Major port improvements. The most notable:

	      -- New internal port table implementation allowing for both
	      parallel reads as well as writes. Especially read operations
	      have become really cheap.This reduce contention in various
	      situations. For example when, creating ports, terminating
	      ports, etc.

	      -- Dynamic allocation of port structures. This allow for a
	      much larger maximum amount of ports allowed as a default. The
	      previous default of 1024 has been raised to 65536. Maximum
	      amount of ports can be set using the +Q command line flag of
	      erl(1). The previously used environment variable
	      ERL_MAX_PORTS has been deprecated and scheduled for removal
	      in OTP-R17.

	      -- Major rewrite of scheduling of port tasks. Major benefits
	      of the rewrite are reduced contention on run queue locks, and
	      reduced amount of memory allocation operations needed. The
	      rewrite was also necessary in order to make it possible to
	      schedule signals from processes to ports.

	      -- Improved internal thread progress functionality for easy
	      management of unmanaged threads. This improvement was
	      necessary for the rewrite of the port task scheduling.

	      -- Rewrite of all process to port signal implementations in
	      order to make it possible to schedule those operations. All
	      port operations can now be scheduled which allows for reduced
	      lock contention on the port lock as well as truly
	      asynchronous communication with ports.

	      -- Optimized lookup of port handles from drivers.

	      -- Optimized driver lookup when creating ports.

	      -- Preemptable erlang:ports/0 BIF.

	      -- Improving responsiveness by bumping reductions for a
	      process calling a driver callback directly.

	      These changes imply changes of the characteristics of the
	      system. The most notable:

	      -- Order of signal delivery -- The previous implementation of
	      the VM has delivered signals from processes to ports in a
	      synchronous stricter fashion than required by the language.
	      As of ERTS version 5.10, signals are truly asynchronously
	      delivered. The order of signal delivery still adheres to the
	      requirements of the language, but only to the requirements.
	      That is, some signal sequences that previously always were
	      delivered in one specific order may now from time to time be
	      delivered in different orders. This may cause Erlang programs
	      that have made false assumptions about signal delivery order
	      to fail even though they previously succeeded. For more
	      information about signal ordering guarantees, see the chapter
	      on communication in the ERTS user's guide. The +n command
	      line flag of erl(1) can be helpful when trying to find
	      signaling order bugs in Erlang code that have been exposed by
	      these changes.

	      -- Latency of signals sent from processes to ports -- Signals
	      from processes to ports where previously always delivered
	      immediately. This kept latency for such communication to a
	      minimum, but it could cause lock contention which was very
	      expensive for the system as a whole. In order to keep this
	      latency low also in the future, most signals from processes
	      to ports are by default still delivered immediately as long
	      as no conflicts occur. Such conflicts include not being able
	      to acquire the port lock, but also include other conflicts.
	      When a conflict occur, the signal will be scheduled for
	      delivery at a later time. A scheduled signal delivery may
	      cause a higher latency for this specific communication, but
	      improves the overall performance of the system since it
	      reduce lock contention between schedulers. The default
	      behavior of only scheduling delivery of these signals on
	      conflict can be changed by passing the +spp command line flag
	      to erl(1). The behavior can also be changed on port basis
	      using the parallelism option of the open_port/2 BIF.

	      -- Execution time of the erlang:ports/0 BIF -- Since
	      erlang:ports/0 now can be preempted, the responsiveness of
	      the system as a whole has been improved. A call to
	      erlang:ports/0 may, however, take a much longer time to
	      complete than before. How much longer time heavily depends on
	      the system load.

	      -- Reduction cost of calling driver callbacks -- Calling a
	      driver callback is quite costly. This was previously not
	      reflected in reduction cost at all. Since the reduction cost
	      now has increased, a process performing lots of direct driver
	      calls will be scheduled out more frequently than before.

	      Potential incompatibilities:

	      -- driver_send_term() has been deprecated and has been
	      scheduled for removal in OTP-R17. Replace usage of
	      driver_send_term() with usage of erl_drv_send_term().

	      -- driver_output_term() has been deprecated and has been
	      scheduled for removal in OTP-R17. Replace usage of
	      driver_output_term() with usage of erl_drv_output_term().

	      -- The new function erl_drv_busy_msgq_limits() has been added
	      in order to able to control management of port queues.

	      The driver API version has been bumped to 2.1 from 2.0 due to
	      the above changes in the driver API.

   OTP-10410  == asn1 ==

	      The options for the ASN.1 compiler has been drastically
	      simplified. The backend is chosen by using ber, per, or uper.
	      The options optimize, nif, and driver are no longer needed.
	      The old options will still work, but will issue a warning.

	      Another change is that generated encode/2 function will
	      always return a binary (some backends used to return an
	      iolist).

   OTP-10417  == kernel sasl ==

	      It is no longer possible to have {Mod,Vsn} in the 'modules'
	      list in a .app file.

	      This was earlier possible, although never documented in the
	      .app file reference manual. It was however visible in the
	      documentation of application:load/[1,2], where the same term
	      as in a .app file can be used as the first argument.

	      The possibility has been removed since the Vsn part was never
	      used.

   OTP-10451  == ssl ==

	      Remove filter mechanisms that made error messages backwards
	      compatible with old ssl but hid information about what
	      actually happened.

	      This does not break the documented API however other reason
	      terms may be returned, so code that matches on the reason
	      part of {error, Reason} may fail.

   OTP-10490  == stdlib ==

	      If a child process fails in its start function, then the
	      error reason was earlier only reported as an error report
	      from the error_handler, and supervisor:start_link would only
	      return {error,shutdown}. This has been changed so the
	      supervisor will now return {error,{shutdown,Reason}}, where
	      Reason identifies the failing child and its error reason.
	      (Thanks to Tomas Pihl)

   OTP-10523  == tools ==

	      A new function, cover:flush(Nodes), is added which will fetch
	      data from remote nodes without stopping cover on those nodes.
	      This is used by test_server and common_test when it is safe
	      to assume that the node will be terminated after the test
	      anyway. The purpose is to avoid processes crashing when
	      re-loading the original beam if the processes is still
	      running old code.

	      Remote nodes will now continue to count code coverage if the
	      connection to the main node is broken. Earlier, a broken
	      connection would cause the cover_server on the remote node to
	      die and thus any still cover compiled modules would cause
	      process crash when trying to insert cover data in ets tables
	      that used to exist on the cover_server. The new functionality
	      also involves synchronization with the main node if the nodes
	      are reconnected.

   OTP-10588  == asn1 ==

	      The ASN.1 compiler will now always include necessary run-time
	      functions in the generated Erlang modules (except for
	      asn1rt_nif which is still neeeded). If the option 'inline' is
	      used the ASN.1 compiler will generate a warning. But if
	      '{inline,OutputFile}' is use, the ASN.1 compiler will refuse
	      to compile the file. (Use a .set.asn file if you need to
	      remove the output file.)

	      The 'BIT STRING' type will now be decoded as Erlang
	      bitstrings by default. Use the new legacy_bit_string option
	      to encode as lists of ones and zeroes. (The
	      compact_bit_string option still works as before.)

	      Open types are now always returned as binaries (when there is
	      no information allowing them to be decoded).

   OTP-10613  == ssl ==

	      Removed deprecated function ssl:pid/0, it has been pointless
	      since R14 but has been keep for backwards compatibility.

   OTP-10633  == erts ==

	      Erlang specification 4.7.3 defines max tuple size to 65535
	      elements It is now enforced to no more than 16777215 elements
	      (arity 24 bits)

	      Previous edge cases (28 bits) were not validated and could
	      cause undefined behaviour.

   OTP-10647  == erts ==

	      The previous default of a maximum of 32768 simultaneous
	      processes has been raised to 262144. This value can be
	      changed using the the +P command line flag of erl(1). Note
	      that the value passed now is considered as a hint, and that
	      actual value chosen in most cases will be a power of two.

   OTP-10812  == stdlib ==

	      filelib:wildcard("some/relative/path/*.beam", Path) would
	      fail to match any file. That is, filelib:wildcard/2 would not
	      work if the first component of the pattern did not contain
	      any wildcard characters. (A previous attempt to fix the
	      problem in R15B02 seems to have made matters worse.)

	      (Thanks to Samuel Rivas and Tuncer Ayaz.)

	      There is also an incompatible change to the Path argument. It
	      is no longer allowed to be a binary.

   OTP-10872  == erts ==

	      As of ERTS-5.10/OTP-R16A node names passed in the EPMD
	      protocol are required to be encoded in UTF-8. Since EPMD
	      previously accepted latin1 encoded node names this is an
	      incompatibility. However, since Erlang nodes always have
	      required characters in node names to be 7-bit ASCII
	      characters (and still do require this), this incompatibility
	      should not effect anyone using EPMD as an Erlang Port Mapper
	      Daemon.

Update to Erlang/OTP R15B03-1


Changes in R15B03-1

After the release of R15B03 a very unfortunate bug in ssl:ssl_accept/2
(accept with timeout) was detected. This bug will have negative impact
on a number of popular http servers and server frameworks written in
Erlang.

The differences from R15B03 are in ssl-5.1.2 and erts-5.9.3.1.

Update to Erlang/OTP R15B01
Presumably fixes PR pkg/46297


Changes in Erlang/OTP R15B01

Highlights:

  * Added erlang:statistics(scheduler_wall_time) to ensure
    correct determination of scheduler utilization. Measuring
    scheduler utilization is strongly preferred over CPU
    utilization, since CPU utilization gives very poor
    indications of actual scheduler/vm usage.
  * Changed ssh implementation to use the public_key application
    for all public key handling. This is also a first step for
    enabling a callback API for supplying public keys and
    handling keys protected with password phrases. Additionally
    the test suites where improved so that they do not copy the
    users keys to test server directories as this is a security
    liability. Also ipv6 and file access issues found in the
    process has been fixed.
  * When an escript ends now all printout to standard output and
    standard error gets out on the terminal. This bug has been
    corrected by changing the behaviour of erlang:halt/0,1,
    which should fix the same problem for other escript-like
    applications, i.e. that data stored in the output port
    driver buffers got lost when printing on a TTY and exiting
    through erlang:halt/0,1. The BIF:s erlang:halt/0,1 has
    gotten improved semantics and there is a new BIF
    erlang:halt/2 to accomplish something like the old
    semantics. See the documentation.
  * The DTrace source patch from Scott Lystig Fritchie is
    integrated in the source tree. Using an emulator with dtrace
    probe is still not supported for production use, but may be
    a valuable debugging tool.
  * Added Torbjörn Törnkvists LDAP client as a new application
    called eldap.
  * Added options for the ssh client to support user keys files
    that are password protected.



Changes in Erlang/OTP R15B

Highlights:

  * Line number and filename information are now included in
    exception backtraces. This information will be
    pretty-printed in the shell and used in crash reports etc.
    In practice it will be much easier to find where something
    failed.
  * The driver interface has been changed to enable 64-bit aware
    drivers. Most importantly the return types for ErlDrvEntry
    callbacks 'call' and 'control' has been changed which
    require drivers to be changed.
  * New in this release is the support for 64 bit Windows.
    The self extracting installer can be found here.
  * CommonTest hooks are now in a final supported version.
  * There is a new GUI tool in the observer application which
    integrates pman, etop, appmon and tv into one tool. The tool
    does also contain functions for activating tracing in an easy way.
  * The Erlang distribution can now be run over the new SSL implementation.


Changes in Erlang/OTP R15A

Notable changes:

OTP-9468  'Line numbers in exceptions'

OTP-9451  'Parallel make'

OTP-4779  A new GUI for Observer. Integrating pman, etop and tv into
          observer with tracing facilities.

OTP-7775  A number of memory allocation optimizations have been
          implemented. Most optimizations reduce contention caused by
          synchronization between threads during allocation and
          deallocation of memory. Most notably:

             Synchronization of memory management in scheduler
             specific allocator instances has been rewritten to
             use lock-free synchronization.

             Synchronization of memory management in scheduler
	     specific pre-allocators has been rewritten to use
	     lock-free synchronization.

             The 'mseg_alloc' memory segment allocator now use
	     scheduler specific instances instead of one
	     instance. Apart from reducing contention this also
	     ensures that memory allocators always create memory
	     segments on the local NUMA node on a NUMA system.

OTP-9632  An ERTS internal, generic, many to one, lock-free
          queue for communication between threads has been
          introduced. The many to one scenario is very common in
          ERTS, so it can be used in a lot of places in the
          future. Currently it is used by scheduling of certain
          jobs, and the async thread pool, but more uses are
          planned for the future.

          Drivers using the driver_async functionality are not
	  automatically locked to the system anymore, and can be
	  unloaded as any dynamically linked in driver.

          Scheduling of ready async jobs is now also interleaved
	  in between other jobs. Previously all ready async jobs
	  were performed at once.

OTP-9631  The ERTS internal system block functionality has been
          replaced by new functionality for blocking the system.
          The old system block functionality had contention
          issues and complexity issues. The new functionality
          piggy-backs on thread progress tracking functionality
          needed by newly introduced lock-free synchronization
          in the runtime system. When the functionality for
          blocking the system isn't used, there is more or less
          no overhead at all. This since the functionality for
          tracking thread progress is there and needed anyway.

Update to Erlang R11B-0 (erlang-11.0).  Changes since R10B:

=== SMP Support ===

The major news is the support for SMP (Symmetric MultiProcessing).

SMP is supported by most modern operating systems like Linux, Windows, Mac OSx,
Solaris and is becoming more important now when dual processors,
hyper-threading technology and multi-core systems are a reality.

With Erlang, most of the problems which occur in multi-threaded programs have
been solved once and for all in the Erlang VM and do not have to be handled by
the application programmers.

In the SMP version of the Erlang virtual machine, there can be many process
schedulers running in separate OS threads. As default there will be as many
schedulers as there are processors or processor cores on the system.

The SMP support is totally transparent for the Erlang programs. That is, there
is no need to change or recompile existing programs. Programs with built-in
assumptions about sequential execution must be rewritten in order to take
advantage of the SMP support, however.

In this release, the Erlang VM supports SMP with focus on stability. There will
follow a number of subsequent steps with necessary optimizations and support
for more platforms.

=== Erlang Language and Related Issues ===

    * The andalso and orelse operators are now allowed to be used in guards.
      That also applies to match specifications.

    * The BIF is_record/3 can now be used in guards. Also, is_record/3 can now
      be called without an erlang: module prefix for consistency with the other
      is_* functions.

    * The compiler options ignore_try and ignore_cond, which allowed code that
      used unquoted try or cond as atoms or record tags, has been removed. Old
      code that depended on the options need to be revised to have occurrences
      of try or cond as atom or record tags single-quoted. (Note: Although cond
      is a reserved keyword, there is no cond statement. It might be introduced
      in a future release.)

    * (ERTS 5.4.8) The new fun M:F/A construct creates a fun that refers to the
      latest version of M:F/A. This syntax is meant to replace tuple funs {M,F}
      which have many problems.

    * (ERTS 5.4.8) The new type test is_function(Fun, Arity) -- which may be
      used in guards -- test whether Fun is a fun that can be applied to Arity
      arguments.

=== New Applications ===

Dialyzer

Dialyzer is a static analysis tool that identifies software discrepancies such
as type errors, unreachable code, unnecessary tests, etc in single Erlang
modules or entire (sets of) applications.

Inviso

The Inviso application, together with some new extensions to Runtime_Tools, is
aimed at providing features for efficient tracing of production Erlang/OTP
systems:

    * Distributed tracing - tracing on any number of Erlang nodes.
    * Autostart - tracing during system start-up.
    * Overload protection - mechanisms for suspending and later reactivating
      tracing, should an overload situation occur.
    * Enhanced use of meta tracing.
    * Trace cases - predefined specifications of what to trace.
    * Off-line merging and formatting of log files.

Inviso is still under development. An easier-to-use trace tool, using the
features listed above, is planned to be released as an R11B patch in Q3/Q4
2006.

SSH

The SSH application is an Erlang implementation of the secure shell protocol.
It is considered to be a beta release, meaning there can be changes made to the
API before it reaches 1.0.

=== Existing Applications ===

Compiler

(Compiler 4.3.6) It is now possible to encrypt the debug information in Beam
files.

Debugger

(Debugger 2.0) The debugger can now handle the try/catch language construct.

Inets

The Erlang implementation of the TFTP procotcol, tftp, is now documented.

Kernel

In Kernel 2.10.X, several bug fixes and improvements have been made in global ,
the global name registration facility.

OS_Mon

(OS_Mon 2.0) The entire OS_Mon application (code and documentation) has been
reviewed and consequently updated with the goal to make the application more
robust, homogeneous and easier to configure.

STDLIB

Added the zip module with functions for reading and creating zip archives.

Floating point exceptions are enabled for __x86_64__ on all operation
systems, but the code that take care of them is inly implemented

Update to version 9.2.

  This  version  is  focused  on  improved performance and stability,
  rather  than introducing new functionality, hence it is called R9C.

Build Process NEW

   The  build  process  has been improved so that it is possible to build
   Erlang/OTP  from  source  even  on  Windows platforms. There is also a
   completely new installation program for Windows.

Observer

  crashdump_viewer NEW

   A  HTML based tool for browsing Erlang crashdumps. The tool can handle
   crashdumps  from  OTP R7B, R8B and R9B as well but there is additional
   information in the crashdumps for R9C.

OTP_MIBs NEW

   The  OTP  mibs  that  where included in the SASL application have been
   moved  to  this  new application otp_mibs. This is a step too create a
   pure   core   for   Erlang/OTP  that  does  not  depend  on  specific,
   non-mainstream applications such as SNMP.

Initial import of erlang-9.1.

Erlang is a programming language which has many features more commonly
associated with an operating system than with a programming language:
concurrent processes, scheduling, memory management, distribution,
networking, etc.

The initial open-source Erlang release contains the implementation of
Erlang, as well as a large part of Ericsson's middleware for building
distributed high-availability systems.
