./lang/erlang, Concurrent functional programming language

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 21.3.6, Package name: erlang-21.3.6, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

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.

Log message:
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

 --- erts-10.2.4 -----------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-14728    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-303

               When using the {linger,{true,T}} option;
               gen_tcp:listen/2 used the full linger time before
               returning for example eaddrinuse. This bug has now been
               corrected.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
 --- stdlib-3.7.1 ----------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15573    Application(s): stdlib
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-306

               Optimize pretty printing of terms. The slower behaviour
               was introduced in Erlang/OTP 20.

erlang: Update to 21.2.5

Changes:

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
 --- inets-7.0.5 -----------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 The inets-7.0.5 application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 21 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15554    Application(s): inets
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-289

               Fixed bug that causes a crash in http client when using
               hostnames (e.g. localhost) with the the option
               ipv6_host_with_brackets set to true.

               This change also fixes a regression: httpc:request
               fails with connection error (nxdomain) if option
               ipv6_host_with_brackets set to true and host component
               of the URI is an IPv6 address.

Log message:
erlang: Update to 21.2.4.

Changes:

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------
 --- erts-10.2.3 -----------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 Note! The erts-10.2.3 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)

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15536    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERL-827

               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 ===
               Bad input fd in erts_poll()! fd=11, port=#Port<0.505>,
               driver=spawn, name=/bin/sh -s unix:cmd

               Bug was introduced in erts-10.0 (OTP-21.0).

  OTP-15538    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-229

               Fix a bug where polling for external events could be
               delayed for a very long time if all active schedulers
               were 100% loaded.

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

  OTP-15544    Application(s): inets
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-289

               Make sure ipv6 addresses with brackets in URIs are
               converted correctly before passing to lower level
               functions like gen_tcp and ssl functions. Could cause
               connection to fail.

 --- compiler-7.3.1 --------------------------------------------------
 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 The compiler-7.3.1 application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 21 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-15501    Application(s): compiler
               Related Id(s): ERL-514, ERL-807, OTP-14808

               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.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------

 Note! The erts-10.2.2 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:

               Related Id(s): PR-2027, PR-2093

               A bug that could cause dirty schedulers to become
               unresponsive has been fixed.

               Related Id(s): ERL-790

               Fix encoding of the SRP extension length field in ssl.
               The old encoding of the SRP extension length could
               cause interoperability problems with third party SSL
               implementations when SRP was used.

  OTP-15504    Application(s): ssl
               Related Id(s): ERL-371
