3.6.8 is a maintenance release that restores Erlang/OTP R16B03 and 17.x compatibility
that was unintentionally affected in 3.6.7 by producing that release on a significantly newer Erlang/OTP version.
Upgrades and Compatibility
See the "Upgrading clusters" section of the documentation for general documentation on upgrades.
This release has no incompatibilities with 3.6.7. See 3.6.7 release notes upgrade and compatibility nodes if upgrading from an earlier release.
Erlang/OTP R16B03 and 17.x are supported again by producing this release on R16B03.
Note that some configurations or community plugins may require a later version.
We recommend all users to upgrade to a 19.x series release if possible. See Debian and RPM installation guides for some Erlang/OTP installation options.
