Not at all! We are working harder on our common goal then ever.
Since the start of harmony in May we have seen the number of
contributions a day triple and we are trying to process 100K of patches
a day. Most development discussion for the classpath core libraries
takes place on the project-sublists (classpath and classpath-patches) to
not flood the general discussion list. I believe those are followed by
most people here. If there are people who are not closely following
development on those lists I can make a summary of the most relevant
(runtime) improvements in this release. But most is discussed in the
release notes and the updated hackers and vm integration guides. Maybe
"This week on harmony-dev" can be extended to also cover some of the
other mailinglists of the sister projects.

It should. If not, please file a bug!
Most classpath/harmony sister projects will release an updated version
soon. For GCC/GCJ the release should be imported asap, "the big merge"
was one of the primary focuses of 0.18. GCC/GCJ should be much more in
sync with upstream classpath development from now on. Kaffe CVS is
mostly up to date, but not completely merged yet. IKVM just made a first
0.20 RC1 based on 0.18 and will most probably release a new stable in a
couple of days. Cacao has been updated in CVS, but is dealing with the
import of the new interpreter based on vmgen so might take a while to
stabilize. And JikesRVM is shooting for a new 2.4.1 next Monday assuming
they get things switched over to classpath 0.18 in the next few days.

There might be a Kaffe port to it:
