Fortress is very close to being released. I believe we are basically waiting 
on two changes before we are ready to release. As to the number of active 
developers - I would guess 4-5 but I suspect it will get more as it is 
basically the migration path away from ECM container and I suspect the cocoon 
people will migrate to it sooner rather than later. Hence lots of users.

Personally I am more a user of Fortress that just happens to fix problems when 
they crop up ;)

What to use? Basically it would depend on what you want to deploy to. If you 
are writing a standalone server of some kind I would suggest using Phoenix. 
If you are writing something to embed inside other apps (like in a webapp) 
then the only released container is ECM ... which implements things in a way 
we no longer approvie of. In which case I would recomend Fortress.

I have crossed this to avalon-dev so hopefully someone will be able to give 
you more of an idea of when Fortress is lined up for release.
