Ideas for a new Erlang

Sven-Olof Nyström

February 2009

This paper presents some thoughts and ideas on the future development of Erlang. Among the topics are: an alternative to Erlang's selective receive, a simple language mechanism to allow function in-lining across module boundaries, a new mechanism for introducing local variables with a more cleanly defined semantics, and a mini-language to allow the efficient implementation of low-level algorithms.
