Recent news reports suggest that China’s development of anti-satellite (ASAT) capabilities is continuing.  See http://missilethreat.com/china-launches-three-asat-satellites/ for details.

That China has prioritized these capabilities is hardly surprising.  They long ago realized the importance of interdicting and degrading space capabilities in a future crisis with the U.S. or other adversaries.

See http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=492http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=459, and http://www.marshall.org/article.php?id=1110 for further discussion of Chinese space program and implications for the US.
