CEAN-1.4 R12B released

After nearly one year of no visible activity I’m happy to announce a new
release of CEAN.

CEAN-1.4 comes with Erlang R12B-4, and brings up many improvements in
the build process. The aim is to reach a production quality level of
autogenerated packages for all erlang contributions.

The most valuable improvements in CEAN-1.4 are:

  • Work in cluster environment. It’s possible to sync CEAN
    installation on several hosts using just one command.

  • A better package dependency resolver. Generated
    dependencies are reliable.

  • Main commands available from bash. No need to join an
    erlang shell to install packages.

  • Lots of new packages.

CEAN also supports updated packages for R11B-5. The cluster features are
backported to the R11B version as well. More information can be found on CEAN website.
