yes, there is some work going on. And in fact I just ported the mantaflow
integration from my github to the official blender repo.

So now you can find everything in the new branch 'fluid-mantaflow'.

The CFD code in Blender is a bit older and (hopefully) Mantaflow can replace /
fix that at some point in the future. That's at least the idea :)
