Erlang/OTP 19.0-rc1 is available for testing.
This is the release candidate before the final OTP 19.0 product release in June 2016.
Between the 19.0 rc1 and the final release there will be new updates of
the master branch with corrections and minor new features.
Occasionally there might be new tags which we in that
case will communicate and ask you to test.
Erlang/OTP 19.0 is a new major release with new features, quite a few (characteristics) improvements, as well as a few incompatibilities.
See the Release Notes and the documentation for more details.
We would like to ask you to build and test this release candidate and send us
your feedback as soon as possible, so that we can make the necessary
corrections before OTP 19.0.
The release contains many changes; thus, some unexpected incompatibilities
or issues may have slipped through our tests.
Please try to build and run your current products/applications and let us
know about any problems.
Some highlights of the release are:
