Thank you very much for your quick answer Håkan.

 Don't know the version because it is what I got with kubuntu typing
"apt-get install erlang" but I think it is from november 2004.

 The command  "apt-cache show erlang" says:

Package: erlang
Priority: optional
Section: universe/interpreters
Installed-Size: 64156
Maintainer: Brent A. Fulgham <bfulgham@REDACTED>
Architecture: all
Version: 1:10.b.1a-2
Replaces: erlang-base (<< 1:10.b.1a-2)
Depends: debianutils (>= 1.13.1), erlang-base (= 1:10.b.1a-2), tk8.4
Pre-Depends: dpkg (>=
Suggests: erlang-manpages (= 1:10.b.1a), erlang-doc-html (= 1:10.b.1a)
Filename: pool/universe/e/erlang/erlang_10.b.1a-2_all.deb

The new ubuntu ditribution "breezy" seems to have a new erlang package erlang-base (1:10.b.5-1), I hope this to be more up to date.

Best regards,
