  1. Add 'WhatsApp' to the list of companies using Erlang

    It isn't secret in the least; it's mentioned on their blog:
    and at least one conference has had a presentation about it.

  1. Reinstate rediscovered material

    e1d5c28 removed a paper because of a broken link, this restores
    it with a new link.

  1. Fix broken links to the defunct site

    Some of the material has moved to 'ErlangCentral', some
    just seems gone. But ErlangCentral is a good collection
    of material.
  2. Remove historical cross-compilation information

    Nobody needs to know how to cross-compile ancient releases from 2009
    any more.
  3. Fix broken links

  4. Add publication dates to books and other documentation

    The idea is to help readers get an idea of which material is
    fresh and which material is more historical.
    Some dead material had to be removed.
  5. Update the location of the EUC proceedings

    They're run by Erlang Solutions nowadays (since 2010)
  6. Remove link to 'The Erlang Rationale'

    The link is broken. Correspondence with the author (Robert Virding,
    2014-06-17) suggested that the name is now mainly used as a conference
    presentation about historical aspects of Erlang.
    The interesting part in the original link was the section on
    the IO system and on process groups, Jobs and JCL. This isn't
    really covered anywhere else as far as I know.
    As at this commit, the original document is still to be found

  1. Add Erlang-solutions' binary packages

    They are much more up-to-date than the ones included in e.g. Debian
  2. Remove references to CEAN, it appears to be defunct

    The 'download' link to CEAN has not been updated since R15B (2011!)

    air until further notice.

  1. Fix broken links

    Some links could just be moved. Others were deleted:
    - Everything on is deleted; the site has
      been down for a long time.
    - The 'TCM' tool is well and truly dead
  2. Remove defunct companies from the "who uses Erlang" list

    Schlund was acquired a few years ago; unclear if they still use Erlang
    Textendo have a placeholder webpage and mail to
    Jeroen Koops (my contact there) bounces.
  3. Fix broken links

    Some have moved, some aren't relevant any more
  4. Update the information about embedded systems

    - Pocket PCs are passe, don't bother talking about them
    - Embedded systems are less exotic now, name some
  5. Fix .ent and .dtd file path to work on R15B and later

    The .dtd and .ent files used to generate the FAQ (and Erlang
    documentation) were moved somewhere between R14B03 and R15B03.
    If xsltproc can't find them, it silently generates broken output.
    One symptom of breakage is that names like Björn get turned into
    This patch adds a check to make sure the .dtd and .ent files are
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
