The Call for Talks will be open until 10 October, but we tend to have more talks submitted than we have slots available, so the earlier you send yours the better your chances.</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Have you made an interesting innovation, open-source application or product with Erlang/OTP? Have you used Erlang in a real-world project and want to present a case study? Or maybe you developed a cool tool? Let the crowd know about it!&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> IMPORTANT: Elixir talks also welcome this year :)&nbsp;</p> <p> &nbsp;</p> <p> Link to submission form: <a href="https://docs.google.com/a/erlang-solutions.com/forms/d/1oD8J66a0pjOU-5Y8vG2Ffn8twyDIyPcRMFrPEdANaY4/viewform">https://docs.google.com/a/erlang-solutions.com/forms/d/1oD8J66a0pjOU-5Y8vG2Ffn8twyDIyPcRMFrPEdANaY4/viewform</a></p> <p> Link to website: <a href="http://www.erlang-factory.com/berlin2014/home">http://www.erlang-factory.com/berlin2014/home</a></p> </p> News Erlang OTP 17.1 has been released http://www.erlang.org/news/77 Wed, 25 Jun 2014 17:31:19 GMT <p><p> Erlang/<span>OTP</span> <span>17.1</span> 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. <br /> <br /> Some highlights of the release are:</p> <ul> <li> crypto: Add aes_cfb8 cypher to crypto:block_encrypt and block_decrypt.</li> <li> diameter: Add result code counters for CEA, DWA, and DPA.</li> <li> erts: The following built in functions in the erlang and binary modules now bump an appropriate amount <br /> of reductions and yield when out of reductions:<br /> binary_to_list/1, binary_to_list/3, bitstring_to_list/1, list_to_binary/1, <br /> iolist_to_binary/1, list_to_bitstring/1, binary:list_to_bin/1</li> <li> hipe: Handle Maps instructions get_map_elements, put_map_assoc, <br /> put_map_exact in the HiPE native code compiler.</li> <li> mnesia: The time for inserting locks for a transaction with large <br /> number of locks is reduced significantly.</li> <li> ssh: Option max_sessions added to ssh:daemon/{2,3}.</li> <li> stdlib: Add maps:get/3 to maps module.
