This raises the security level considerably.</li> </ul> <ul> <li> kernel,stdlib,sasl: A mechanism for limiting the amount of text that the built-in error logger events will produce has been introduced. It is useful for limiting both the size of log files and the CPU time used to produce them. <br /> This mechanism is experimental in the sense that it may be changed based on feedback. See config parameter error_logger_format_depth in the Kernel application.</li> </ul> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> You can find the <span>Release</span> Notes with more detailed info at</p> <p> <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> <div> <p> You can download the full source distribution from <a href="" target="_blank"></a></p> </div> <div> <p> Note: To unpack the TAR archive you need a GNU TAR compatible program.
