Faxien and erlware in general is far from dead. Our dev list is active
and all the projects are continually developed. We are getting ready
to do our 1.0 release here in the next week or so. At that time faxien
will be bumped. While it was in beta are concentrating on adding
features and stabilizing the system not necessarily being up on the
latest version of erts. When we do this release we will make a
commitment to getting up on the latest erts as it comes out.  This is
all pretty obvious just by looking at the mailing list archives.

Wait a week or so ;)
