Subject Re: 1.3.0 release cycle & R16B support
Date Thu, 14 Mar 2013 15:56:07 GMT
I think this should wait for sure.

Just a note, Gentoo will often have something new available, but 16B is 
not marked stable yet. http://packages.gentoo.org/package/dev-lang/erlang

Additionally, the Arch and homebrew issues aside, I don't think anyone 
will have to worry about this issue for quite some time yet.
