Erlang is continually improving and we recommend the latest non-alpha
version. The latest version includes line numbers in stack traces, which
makes it easier for us to help you in case things go wrong.

The Erlang website has more documentation for the release you are
considering: http://www.erlang.org/download/otp_src_R15B.readme

In my own tests I have not observed a big performance gain, but that is
not the only consideration that should guide your decision.
