EDE has gotten better, and the developers are still actively improving it.

I believe the current development version of EDE meets these goals, or
at least desires to (except for the name of the project description

In particular, the user guide has been much improved.

Both the Emacs bundled version and the SourceForge development version
of EDE are a little broken right now, because of the eieio and
cl-generic changes in Emacs master. So you should wait a while before
trying it again.
