./lang/erlang, Concurrent functional programming language

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 18.0nb1, Package name: erlang-18.0nb1, 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:
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

Log message:
Update lang/erlang 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
- Bugfixes and minor small features in applications such as compiler,
  common_test, crypto, debugger, eldap, erts, hipe, inets, ssh, ssl,...

Full changelog:


- 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.

Full changelog:


- erts: Introduced enif_schedule_nif() which allows a long 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

Full changelog:


- crypto: Add aes_cfb8 cypher to crypto:block_encrypt and block_decrypt.
- diameter: Add result code counters for CEA, DWA, and DPA.
- erts: The following built in functions in the erlang and binary modules
  now bump an appropriate amount of reductions and yield when
  out of reductions:
    binary_to_list/1, binary_to_list/3, bitstring_to_list/1,
    list_to_binary/1, iolist_to_binary/1, list_to_bitstring/1,
- hipe: Handle Maps instructions get_map_elements, put_map_assoc,
  put_map_exact in the HiPE native code compiler.
- mnesia: The time for inserting locks for a transaction with large
  number of locks is reduced significantly.
- ssh: Option max_sessions added to ssh:daemon/{2,3}.
- stdlib: Add maps:get/3 to maps module. The function will return the
  supplied default value if the key does not exist in the map.

Full changelog:


- Erlang/OTP has been ported to the realtime operating system OSE.
- Maps, a new dictionary data type (experimental)
- A more natural mapping from ASN.1 OCTET STRING and BIT STRING to
  Erlang types, and other ASN.1 improvements and optimizations
- The {active, N} socket option for TCP, UDP, and SCTP
- A new (optional) scheduler utilization balancing mechanism
- Migration of memory carriers has been enabled by default on all
  ERTS internal memory allocators
- Increased garbage collection tenure rate
- Experimental "dirty schedulers" functionality
- Funs can now be given names
- Miscellaneous unicode support enhancements
- A new version scheme for OTP its applications has been introduced

erlang (R16B03-1)

- The ODBC application was missing in the prebuilt Windows installers
- 3 corrections in the SSL application:
  - Add missing validation of the server_name_indication option and test
    for its explicit use.
  - Elliptic curve selection in server mode now properly selects a curve
    suggested by the client, if possible.
  - The server did not indicate support for secure renegotiation during
    TLS extension handling.
- In the syntax tools application a bug was introduced which broke
  reverting of local funs. This is now corrected (thanks to Anthony Ramine)
- wx - Solved a problem which caused the debugger to crash when closing
  a window. Fixed static linking on Mac.
- xmerl - Fixed a problem in the SAX-parser when the header of
  the next document was appearing in the buffer when using
  the xmerl_sax_parser:stream/2 function.

erlang-16.1.3 (R16B03)

- A new memory allocation feature called "super carrier" has been \ 
  It can for example be used for pre-allocation of all memory that the
  runtime system should be able to use. It is enabled by passing the +MMscs
  (size in MB) command line argument. For more information see
  the documentation of the +MMsco, +MMscrfsd, +MMscrpm, +MMscs, +MMusac, and,
  +Mlpm command line arguments in the erts_alloc(3) documentation.
- The ldap client eldap now supports the start_tls operation. This upgrades
  an existing tcp connection to encryption using tls,
  see eldap:start_tls/2 and /3.
- The ftp client (inets application) now supports ftp over tls (ftps).
