I've been waiting for a declaration of version upgrade status too since I moved to Lion. However, except for the easy clearing of caches, most of AppleJack's functionality can now be performed on drives using 1.7.x and newer. Since Lion, the Mac OS X system installs a hidden recovery partition.

From Lion's System Help:
"Mac OS X Lion comes with a built-in recovery disk that you can use to reinstall Mac OS X, repair a disk, restore from a Time Machine backup, and more. To use the recovery disk, restart your computer while holding down the Command (⌘) and R keys."

I assume that Mountain Lion's Help has a similar statement.

This recovery partition lacks a full system but it includes its own copy of Disk Utility which can run Verify/Repair Disk Permissions and/or Verify/Repair Disk on the Startup Volume; no need for an external resource. Aside from system changes that apparently obstruct further AppleJack updates, the existence of this new built-in workaround has left AppleJack in thankless limbo for Kristofer Widholm. I've been using since Mac OS X 10.2. I miss it but I'm not surprised at this quasi-demise.
[Version 1.6]
