OTP 24.1 #

Erlang/OTP 24.1 is the first maintenance patch release for OTP 24, with mostly bug fixes as well as a few improvements.

Below are some highlights of the release:

Highlights #

  • OTP: The Efficiency Guide has been extended with a chapter about maps.

  • Stdlib: Most output functions in the io module now print extra error information when provided with invalid arguments. The functions are: io:format, io:fwrite, io:put_chars, io:nl and io:write.

  • Erts: init:stop() no longer unloads loaded code before terminating the runtime system. On systems with slow CPUs (such as Raspberry PI Zero), that can significantly speed up termination of the runtime system.
