common_test- #

The common_test- application can be applied independently of other applications on a full OTP 25 installation.


Fix how CT finds Erlang/OTP releases for compatability testing. This functionality is only used to test Erlang/OTP.

Full runtime dependencies of common_test- compiler-6.0, crypto-4.5, debugger-4.1, erts-7.0, ftp-1.0, inets-6.0, kernel-8.4, observer-2.1, runtime_tools-1.8.16, sasl-2.5, snmp-5.1.2, ssh-4.0, stdlib-4.0, syntax_tools-1.7, tools-3.2, xmerl-1.3.8

erts- #

Note! The erts- application *cannot* be applied independently of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 25 installation. On a full OTP 25 installation, also the following runtime dependencies have to be satisfied: -- kernel-8.5 (first satisfied in OTP 25.1) -- stdlib-4.1 (first satisfied in OTP 25.1)

32-bit runtime systems on most Unix like platforms could crash if a BIF timer was set with a huge timeout of more than 68 years into the future. In order for the crash to occur, the huge timer (at a later time than when it was set) had to become the nearest active timer set on the specific scheduler on which it was set. This could not happen on a system with only one scheduler since there would always be shorter timers in the system.

Setting a timer larger than 49 days on Windows could under rare circumstances cause the timeout to be delayed.

Garbage collection of a process on a dirty scheduler could collide with signal handling for that process causing a crash of the runtime system. This bug was introduced in OTP and OTP 26.2.

Full runtime dependencies of erts- kernel-8.5, sasl-3.3, stdlib-4.1

ssh- #

The ssh- application can be applied independently of other applications on a full OTP 25 installation.


With this change, Curve25519 and Curve448 KEX methods become most preferred (related to RFC8731).

Full runtime dependencies of ssh- crypto-5.0, erts-11.0, kernel-6.0, public_key-1.6.1, runtime_tools-1.15.1, stdlib-3.15
