I assume it still is, as there has not been that much
developement on it since 1.0.6 came out. the
pocketlinux kaffe tree includes a second generation
incremental  garbage collector (mem2), and a bridge to
boehm's collector (mem3), but these have not been
merged into the main tree yet. You can take a look at
the sources at

And check out this mail from Jim Pick for more info on
these interfaces:

If you want to hack on them, and get them merged into
the main tree, you're more than welcome to contribute.
