The typechecker as developed by Simon Marlow and Phil Wadler
is not updated to the newer Erlang releases. A different
approach is available at:

and a newer version is under construction and yet applied
to code of one of the bigger projects.

Another verification tool that has been developed
is a theorem-prover like tool which can be used to (manually) 
prove arbitrary  properties of Erlang programs:

Recently at the university of Aachen they have build a 
prototype modelchecker tool for Erlang:

Please send me an email if you need more detailed information.
