The latest version of Sinan is out. This version adds support for spawning a new Erlang node with shell for the current project. This makes debugging and exploratory programming much, much easier. It also spawns the node with an sname 'sinan_shell' so that the new shell will interact well with distel. This is a change that a lot of people have asked for and I am pleased to be able to integrate it.
I am still having issues with the analyze task that I am working through. However, I hope to have it fixed and working shortly.
