There is still active development, but it isn't going terribly fast.
OpenAFS definitely has a larger community behind it.

There was a good push to get a working Coda release out for the most
recent FreeBSD-stable release. I think it works pretty well now. I tend
to mostly use a Debian based system myself, but haven't heard complaints
from people using Coda on Fedora or Gentoo either. I think there are
also at least two people using NetBSD.
