The default Erlang version in Fedora 30 is 21. Notable changes in this version include:

  • The BEAM interpreter has been completely re-written.

  • The compiler is about 10-20% faster.

  • Enhanced and improved IO handling.

  • All CORBA libraries were split off to an independent repository.

  • Insecure cryptographic algorithms were disabled.

  • Non-smp VM removed.

  • New API for logging: logger.

  • The zlib module has been refactored and all its operations now yield appropriately, allowing them to be used freely in concurrent applications.
