OTP 24.1 Release
Written by Henrik, 22 Sep 2021

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.
