 Check out the git tag OTP-, and build a full OTP system
 including documentation. Apply one or more applications from this
 build as patches to your installation using the 'otp_patch_apply'
 tool. For information on install requirements, see descriptions for
 each application version below.

 --- common_test- --------------------------------------------

 The common_test- application can be applied independently of
 other applications on a full OTP 25 installation.

  OTP-18932    Application(s): common_test

               Fix how CT finds Erlang/OTP releases for compatability
               testing. This functionality is only used to test

 Full runtime dependencies of common_test- compiler-6.0,
 crypto-4.5, debugger-4.1, erts-7.0, ftp-1.0, inets-6.0, kernel-8.4,

 --- erts- ---------------------------------------------------

 Note! The erts- application *cannot* be applied independently
       of other applications on an arbitrary OTP 25 installation.

       On a full OTP 25 installation, also the following runtime
       dependencies have to be satisfied:
       -- kernel-8.5 (first satisfied in OTP 25.1)
       -- stdlib-4.1 (first satisfied in OTP 25.1)

  OTP-18911    Application(s): erts
               Related Id(s): ERIERL-1023, PR-7983

               32-bit runtime systems on most Unix like platforms
               could crash if a BIF timer was set with a huge timeout
               of more than 68 years into the future. In order for the
               crash to occur, the huge timer (at a later time than
               when it was set) had to become the nearest active timer
               set on the specific scheduler on which it was set. This
               could not happen on a system with only one scheduler
               since there would always be shorter timers in the

               Setting a timer larger than 49 days on Windows could
               under rare circumstances cause the timeout to be

               Garbage collection of a process on a dirty scheduler
               could collide with signal handling for that process
               causing a crash of the runtime system. This bug was
               introduced in OTP and OTP 26.2.

 --- ssh- ----------------------------------------------------

 The ssh- application can be applied independently of other
 applications on a full OTP 25 installation.

 --- Fixed Bugs and Malfunctions ---

  OTP-18964    Application(s): ssh

               With this change, Curve25519 and Curve448 KEX methods
               become most preferred (related to RFC8731).
