The Xen project seems to have been quite for a while..... Does anyone know what is happening?

I believe Vmotion with VMware allows you to migrate Guests while still

No.

A VMWare guest image includes the complete machine state - including the
entire kernel and userspace.  When the machine is migrated, all of the
state moves as a single unit.

When migrating a zone, you would have to find some way to extricate the
kernel state for just that some subset of a system's processes, devices,
network connections, etc. - then insert that state into the middle of a
kernel already running on another machine.  To put it mildly, that would be
hard.

If you want live migration on Solaris, and you are using x86/x64 machines,
then you should be looking at Xen.
