* lukas/otp/install_with_whitespace/OTP-10107: Update to work with space in include path Update to work with whitespace in exec path
The hybrid heap emulator was last working in the non-SMP R11B run-time system. When the constant pools were introduced in R12B, the hybrid heap emulator was not updated to handle them. At this point, the harm from reduced readability of the code is greater than any potential usefulness of keeping the code.
Common file target.mk now passes the TARGET value through config.sub for canonification. Toplevel Makefile now calls target.mk so it handles TARGET like all sub-makefiles. Build script otp_build no longer creates a target specific directory that a long time ago was used for target specific configure cache file.
The support for using Dialyzer specifications and types has been improved.
Support for using Dialyzer specifications and types has been added. This is an experimental release; changes are expected before the new functionality is used when building the OTP documentation.
Building in a source tree without prebuilt platform independent build results failed on the SSL examples when cross building. This has been solved by not building the SSL examples during a cross build.
* ta/doc-fakefop: Build placeholder PDF files if FOP is not found OTP-8559 ta/doc-fakefop If the 'fop' program (needed for building PDF files) cannot not be found, it is now possible to build the HTML and man pages anyway (there will also be dummy PDF files with no real content created).
The INSTALL.md, INSTALL-CROSS.md, and INSTALL-WIN32.md "readme files" are now included in both the HTML and the PDF documentation.
improvements. Most notable: Lots of cross compilation improvements. The old cross compilation support was more or less non-existing as well as broken. Please, note that the cross compilation support should still be considered as experimental. Also note that old cross compilation configurations cannot be used without modifications. For more information on cross compiling Erlang/OTP see the $ERL_TOP/xcomp/README file. Support for staged install using <url href="http://www.gnu.org/prep/standards/html_node/DESTDIR.html">D ESTDIR</url>. The old broken INSTALL_PREFIX has also been fixed. For more information see the $ERL_TOP/README file. Documentation of the release target of the top Makefile. For more information see the $ERL_TOP/README file. make install now by default creates relative symbolic links instead of absolute ones. For more information see the $ERL_TOP/README file. $ERL_TOP/configure --help=recursive now works and prints help for all applications with configure scripts. Doing make install, or make release directly after make all no longer triggers miscellaneous rebuilds. Existing bootstrap system is now used when doing make install, or make release without a preceding make all. The crypto and ssl applications use the same runtime library path when dynamically linking against libssl.so and libcrypto.so. The runtime library search path has also been extended. The configure scripts of erl_interface and odbc now search for thread libraries and thread library quirks the same way as erts do. The configure script of the odbc application now also looks for odbc libraries in lib64 and lib/64 directories when building on a 64-bit system. The config.h.in file in the erl_interface application is now automatically generated in instead of statically updated which reduces the risk of configure tests without any effect.
environment after a number of bugs are fixed and some features are added in the documentation build process. - The arity calculation is updated. - The module prefix used in the function names for bif's are removed in the generated links so the links will look like "http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/erlang.html#append_element-2" instead of "http://www.erlang.org/doc/man/erlang.html#erlang:append_element- 2". - Enhanced the menu positioning in the html documentation when a new page is loaded. - A number of corrections in the generation of man pages (thanks to Sergei Golovan) - The legal notice is taken from the xml book file so OTP's build process can be used for non OTP applications.

checking if CC equaled gcc. That is, the makefiles failed to detect gcc C compilers with other command line names than gcc. `configure' now substitute GCC into the makefiles. If CC is a gcc C compiler, GCC will have the value yes. (Thanks to Jean-S�bastien P�dron)
(.eix) of erlang terms that can be read by the erldoc application. Erldoc handles the documentation search mechanism at erlang.org. Added generation of eix files to otp_release_targets.mk. Fixed a copyright date error in db_html.xsl .
