Short answer, yes it is there now, but only up to 420p... Longer answer, they are currently in the process of working on the app, so the viewing experience might be a little uneven for some users at times until they complete it.

Is that still the case? I was debating between an Apple TV or Roku 3, but if the latter still only plays Crunchyroll content at 480p, then that makes the Apple TV a dealbreaker for me.

Yes, at present, the Roku streams only go up to 480p.

There are some indications that may be changing soon, but there is no ETA, so there is always the chance it could be longer. (CR actually tried to roll out new video encoding for the Roku earlier this year that would support 720p, but it caused problems and they had to abandon that approach).

One unique aspect of CR on the Apple TV is that according to the original announcement, it supports 1080p, which is something even the XBOX 360 and PS3 apps don't (they top out at 720p).

Bjaker wrote 6 days ago that he talked with the engineers and the update should come in the next couple weeks. It may not count as an official ETA, but there's good reason to hope that it will come sooner than later :)

Update: Bjaker wrote last night that he was beta testing the new roku app

Bjaker is writing right now to say that the app has been submitted to Roku and is being tested by them right now.

So any news on the new Roku app? Will it be like the Iphone one where it tells you how long until next episode? Or have a recent releases section?

No news on the release, and the new app will be similar to the PS3 app in appearance.

Can you tell us if there is no news because the engineers or Q/A are still working on it or is there no news because the project has been shelved for the time being?

We're currently working on a lot of different projects.
Manga just launched today so there was a lot of focus on that.
The app is still being worked on.
