We will present the specification language and some of its interaction 
with the analysis in Dialyzer at the Erlang Workshop next month. We have 
a functioning system and have started to annotate the libraries in OTP 
for testing purposes. There will probably be an EEP at some point since 
we are hoping to have it included in R12B.

Tobias
