- A new memory allocation feature called "super carrier" has been introduced. 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).
- Approximately 50 user contributions. Many thanks for that!
