For example <a href="http://www.erlang.org/article/tag/examples">http://www.erlang.org/article/tag/examples</a> and <a href="http://www.erlang.org/course/course.html">http://www.erlang.org/course/course.html</a> are outdated. We would like to see a number of small code examples for beginners. The purpose of these examples is to provide an attractive and useful introduction for people who are interested in adopting the Erlang programming language.&nbsp;</p> <p> Please send your input to <a href="mailto:community-manager@erlang.org">community-manager@erlang.org</a>. We would like to call for help from the community since OTP team does not have too much time and it is not possible to submit pull requests for editorial of erlang.org as of now.&nbsp;</p> <p> Any other suggestions for erlang.org are always welcome.</p></p> News Erlang OTP 17.3 has been released http://www.erlang.org/news/79 Thu, 18 Sep 2014 09:21:04 GMT <p><div style="box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;"> Erlang/OTP 17.3 is a service release on the 17 track with mostly bug fixes, but is does contain a number of new features and characteristics improvements as well.&nbsp;</div> <div style="box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;"> &nbsp;</div> <div style="box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;"> Some highlights of the release are:</div> <div style="box-sizing: border-box; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;"> &nbsp;</div> <ul style="box-sizing: border-box; margin-top: 0px; margin-bottom: 10px; color: rgb(51, 51, 51); font-family: 'Helvetica Neue', Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 20px;"> <li style="box-sizing: border-box;"> &nbsp;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</li> <li style="box-sizing: border-box;"> common_test: Experimental support for running Quickcheck and PropEr tests from common_test suites is added.
