Daniel Freedman at Technion tipped me off about that.
Some links could just be moved. Others were deleted: - Everything on erlang-projects.org is deleted; the site has been down for a long time. - The 'TCM' tool is well and truly dead
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.
Some have moved, some aren't relevant any more
- Pocket PCs are passe, don't bother talking about them - Embedded systems are less exotic now, name some
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 Bjrn. This patch adds a check to make sure the .dtd and .ent files are there.
Prior to this change, words like Mexico come out as Mxico on www.erlang.org. No idea why. This commit tries a workaround.
- Fix the title spelling - Add a link to the publisher
- Remove 'What I can do for Erlang?'. That made sense a decade ago when open-source Erlang was new. Now, it's outgrown that sort of thing. - Remove the 'flamewars' section. There aren't many on erlang-questions any more and most of the classic ones are closed subjects, e.g. the 'dialyzer' has pretty much stopped the deadlock about "there's no type checker so it sucks". - Update the OO section. - Update the description of how the GC works; important things have changed since the VM went SMP.
The shared and hybrid heap options were removed entirely in ERTS 5.9.2 (see release notes, or commit 8ca1414c)
…t/Erlang-FAQ into temp_mats Mats updated the gui section
- Be more picky in which things are treated as links - Use " instead of ' for all URLs
Jungerl isn't used much anymore, most Erlang projects are on github now
- vim has better plugins than before - nedit is a dead project (died 2004), remove it - Eclipse has moved - BBEdit has moved - Distel has moved - Syntax tools is now part of the Erlang distribution
