Thanks for the info. SSL in Erlang R14B seems to work fine.

Maybe it would be good to update the info about various Erlang  
versions at http://www.rabbitmq.com/ssl.html ?


> Hi,
> Erlang R14B has just been released, and you can download it from
> http://www.erlang.org/download.html
> A couple of things are relevant for Rabbit:
> 1. If compiling Rabbit, you'll get some warnings like:
> src/rabbit_plugin_activator.erl:75: Warning: ambiguous call of
> overridden auto-imported BIF error/2
>  - use erlang:error/2 or "-compile({no_auto_import,[error/2]})." to
>    resolve name clash
> They are only warnings, and they can be safely ignored - we have tested
> and confirmed that it's doing the right thing, despite the warning.
> 2. Lots and lots and lots of fixes have happened in the SSL module.
> Preliminary testing seems to show SSL now really does work. The R14B
> release notes (http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R14B.readme) even
> mention that memory leaks in the crypto infrastructure have been fixed
> (I know someone reported memory leaks with SSL recently here).
> Hopefully the distros will quickly update their Erlang packages to R14B
> so that people are not relying on a BETA release of Erlang that has bugs
> in it. The fact that the now frozen Debian Squeeze has R14A in it is a
> little worrying...
