Pretty excited about yesterday’s release of Erlang/OTP 17.0.
You can read more about why this release is important from Joe Armstrong’s
February 1 post: “Big Changes to Erlang“.
The release of Erlang/OTP 17 is important to the v1.0 release of Elixir
as well: “Milestones for 1.0“.
If you are on Linux or Mac many folks use a handy tool named Kerl to build and switch
between multiple releases of Erlang. Get started here:
If you are on Windows you’ve got it easy. Go to the Erlang.org’s download page
(here) and download the
64-bit OTP 17.0
Windows Binary File. It runs as a standard Windows installer, and it works great.
All dependencies are pulled in for you including wxWidgets which is used with the
graphical tools Debugger
