I've been a bad MLVM citizen.
We've been so slammed with JRuby work that I haven't had a chance to
check things out again, but the time is drawing near. We're pushing out
a fairly big release of JRuby this month that will probably be our last
major release before JavaOne. That should free up some time to rework
JRuby's nascent invokedynamic support and finally give some feedback on
the changes since September.

Yes, I finally got permission to directly contribute to Attila's
project, so that will come along with this work. So hopefully March +
April = dynalang research season.
