Kitura or Vapor for a new server project?

I've looked into Kitura and Vapor, and they both seem to have decent API's and the features I need. I'm curious about whether these projects are both actively developed and well supported, and whether there are any major differentiating features that set one or the other apart.

If anyone has an opinion on this I would be very happy to hear it.
