  AFAIK, google code distel works with any combination of Erlang
  R9-R13 and Gnu Emacs 19-23 + some versions of XEmacs. Most of the
  user base is pretty bleeding edge, so it's pretty much guaranteed to
  work with the current and upcoming releases (right now Erlang
  R12-R13 and Emacs 22-23.)

  Jungerl distel hasn't been updated in quite a few years, and only
  exists because it's too much work to delete it.

  The OTP erlang.el is not really maintained. I can recommend the
  erlang.el from erlware;
