Is there an up to date version of ScummVM on 3DS? 

What the title says. I know the Cruel used to have a 3DS version, but we know that's not getting any updates. Is there another fork or is anyone working on one?

As far as I know, no, but you would probably need to ask Cruel as this was never an "official" port.

The 3DS port code changes were never upstreamed to the project to make them "official". Cruel's work can be found here:
https://github.com/Cruel/scummvm/tree/3ds

I have archived the changes to a branch of my tree for backup in case Cruel's fork is deleted and I will see if I can rebase the changes onto the latest master and fixup:
https://github.com/digitall/scummvm/tree/platform_3ds

However, I do not own a NDS or 3DS so we would still need a porter to look at this in future.

Ah... Just found a note on a thread in the NDS Port Sub-forum regarding this:
http://forums.scummvm.org/viewforum.php?f=13
http://forums.scummvm.org/viewtopic.php?t=10572

As this indicates, there is no chance of asking Cruel anything or expecting new releases as he is in jail for the next 20 years...

The last releases he made are here:

As I said before, a new porter would be required to look at the existing code and update.
