Unfortunately no.
For a long time it was annoyed by the fact that building it required  
huge resources but since maven 1.1 this is all very easy. Still, since  
James left it, it is kind of dormant with several unsolved issues, the  
biggest one being the website I feel.

Some people still use it though and adding a few feature is quite  
Jelly is still unbeatable as a glue in xml processing.
What took James from Jelly, I think, is Groovy but that is  
incomparable... data in groovy is just as ugly as data in java while  
data in jelly is kind of natural and mixing data and scripting is  
exactly where jelly is at glory.
