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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 18.3, Package name: erlang-18.3, 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.

This also contains a fix for HiPE enabled emulator for FreeBSD.

- 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 RFC 5656.
- ssh: The ssh:daemon option dh_gex_groups is extended to read a user
