Marmalade is hosted at You should find
CVS information as well as a link to recent source drops at that site.

I named it marmalade so people would get the relationship to jelly, 
without thinking it was the next logical iteration of jelly. This is a 
clean implementation, with a fresh approach to the problem domain of XML 

As for the rest of Jason's message regarding current Jelly taglib
functionality, I should be a bit more modest. I've currently implemented
the Jelly-core library, and have a compatibility layer that I've tested
against core, define and a couple of others. This compat-layer is really
a way of running jelly inside of marmalade as a stop-gap until we get
full native reimplementations of Jelly taglibs finished.

Anyway, feel free to ask me any other questions you have about Marmalade
(I'm the project lead), but you may want to relocate the thread to (see the project website for subscription
