Erlang R12B-3 Released

There's a new release of Erlang/OTP out today, which you can download from the usual location. I've also imported it into the erlang-otp repository at GitHub.

According to the readme, this release contains an "experimental" regular expression module called re. The module wraps a lower-level PCRE library and is "many times faster than the pure Erlang implementation". It also looks like it works equally well with both binary- and list-based strings. So I guess the race is one to see who can get their WideFinder implementation up and running first...
