Yes, exactly. And the 3 languages in the book. Their websites say they are alive and well, but they would say that regardless. I will Finish the book anyways.

Though neither python or .Net use the JVM. So not sure of the point...

There are lots of languages besides Java which (can) run on the JVM.

Perhaps the most popular one, and the one that gets more and more use in real projects, is Scala.

Some of the other languages that are seriously being used are Groovy (a dynamic language; the Gradle build system is based on this) and Clojure, a variant of LISP for the JVM.

There's also JRuby (Ruby on the JVM), Jython (Python on the JVM), Kotlin (a new programming language by Jetbrains, creators of IntelliJ IDEA) and many others.
