State of Jython?

This is a very interested flavor of python and I am interested in using more; 
however, I noticed that the last update is in december.  Anyway, I was playing 
with it and the implementation does not seem compatible with jdk 1.4.  I am 
curious to know how active this is and what the future is; for example, when 
will 2.2 be released?

The jython code has an assert method and this is a reserved word.  Anyway, I 
tried playing around with the source to see if I could have jython generate and 
use a py_assert method instead of assert; i.e. python/jython assert call is 
translated in py_assert and the library routine would be called py_assert.  I 
could not figure it out.  If I understood more about the pieces and how to 
build it, I would fix this problem.
