Change Logs

* Tue Jan 12 2016
- Update to 18.2.2:
  * ssh: The authentication method 'keyboard-interactive' failed
    in the Erlang client when the server after successful
    authentication continued by asking for zero more
* Mon Dec 28 2015
- Update to 18.2.1:
  * Due to a bug in the handling of paths on windows
    none of the following would work with paths
    containing a space: ct_run dialyzer erlc escript typer
    This also contains a fix for HiPE enabled emulator for
- Update to 18.2:
  * ssl: Add configurable upper limit for session
    cache.  erts: Add function enif_getenv to read OS
    environment variables in a portable way from NIFs.
  * kernel: Add {line_delim, byte()} option to
    inet:setopts/2 and  decode_packet/3
  * ssh: The 'ecdsa-sha2-nistp256',
    'ecdsa-sha2-nistp384' and 'ecdsa-sha2-nistp521'
    signature algorithms for ssh are implemented. See RFC5656.
  * ssh: The ssh:daemon option dh_gex_groups is
    extended to read a user provided ssh moduli file
    with generator-modulus pairs. The file is in openssh
* Thu Dec 17 2015
- disable hipe on s390/s390x to fix build
* Thu Oct 29 2015
- Update to 18.1.3:
  * ssl: Add possibility to downgrade an SSL/TLS connection to a
    tcp connection, and give back the socket control to a user
  * ssh: The following new key exchange algorithms are
    implemented:'ecdh-sha2-nistp256', 'ecdh-sha2-nistp384',
    '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. This
    mechanism is experimental in the sense that it may be changed
    based on feedback. See config parameter
    error_logger_format_depth in the Kernel application.
- Removed erts_fix_unlock_status_lock.patch: fixed in upstream
* Tue Sep 29 2015
- Rework wxWidgets BuildRequire: fix build for Leap 42.1 (boo#967176)
* Wed Aug 26 2015
- update to 18.0.3:
  * erts: Fixed a binary memory leak when printing to shell using
    the tty driver (i.e. not -oldshell).
  * erts: Fix a bug where the standard error port sometimes
    crashes with eagain as the reason.
* Thu Aug 13 2015
- add erts_fix_unlock_status_lock.patch to fix a rare deadlock in erts
* Fri Jul 24 2015
- fix RHEL/CentOS 7 build
* Thu Jul 09 2015
- update to 18.0.2:
  * Fix processes ending up in an inconsistent half exited state
    in the runtime system without SMP support
  * Remove unnecessary copying of data when retrieving corrected
    Erlang monotonic time.
    Change default OS monotonic clock source chosen at build time.
    This in order to improve performance. The behavior will now on
    most systems be that (both OS and Erlang) monotonic time stops
    when the system is suspended. (changeable via the
  - -enable-prefer-elapsed-monotonic-time-during-suspend
    configure parameter)
  * Fix erlang:system_info(end_time) returning a faulty value on
    32-bit architectures.
  * Fix the trace_file_drv not handling EINTR correctly which
    caused it to fail when the runtime system received a signal.
* Tue Jun 30 2015
- update to 18.0.1:
  * Fix a rare hanging of the VM seen to happen just after
    emulator start. Bug exists since R14.
* Fri Jun 26 2015
- update to 18.0:
  * new license: APL 2.0 (Apache Public License)
  * 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. See
  * erts: Beside the API changes and time warp modes a lot of
    scalability and performance improvements regarding time
    management has been made. Examples are:
    + scheduler specific timer wheels,
    + scheduler specific BIF timer management,
    + parallel retrieval of monotonic time and system time
    on OS:es that support it.
  * 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. It can also be used for requesting warnings in
    a module.
  * 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).
    + update_counter/4 with a default object as argument
* Thu Jun 25 2015
- update to 17.5.6:
  * Fix broken relay counters
  * Fix diameter_sctp listener race
- fix build for SLE_12
* Thu May 28 2015
- Update to 17.5.4
* Mon May 04 2015
- fix systemd service files for epmd:
  * fix stop of epmd (epmd -kill is deprecated and ignored, so stop hangs)
* Tue Apr 07 2015
- Update to 17.5:
  * ERTS: Added command line argument option for setting the
    initial size of process dictionaries.
  * Diameter: configurable incoming_max len and string_decode for
    diameter messages
  * Bugfixes and minor small features in applications such as
    compiler, common_test, crypto, debugger, eldap, erts, hipe,
    inets, ssh, ssl, ...
- remoce ct-fix_incl-dirs.patch (included upstream)
* Mon Feb 23 2015
- add ct-fix_incl-dirs.patch (upstream patch for common test)
* Sat Dec 13 2014
- Version 17.4:
  * eldap: Nearly all TCP options are possible to give in the eldap:open/2 call.
  * ssh: Added API functions ptty_alloc/3 and ptty_alloc/4, to allocate a pseudo tty.
  * ssl: Handle servers that may send an empty SNI extension to the client.
* Sun Nov 09 2014

* Sun Nov 09 2014 Led <>

* Wed Sep 17 2014
- Update to 17.3:

    running NIF to be broken into separate NIF invocations
    without the help of a wrapper function written in Erlang
  * common_test: Experimental support for running Quickcheck and
    PropEr tests from common_test suites is added.
    Examples of usage in the suites for the ssh and
    inets applications
  * Bugfixes and minor new features in applications such as asn1,
    erts, kernel, stdlib, diameter, ssh, mnesia, ssl, jinterface
