we have a project with the objective of doing such a .NET
implementation for GHC, supported by MS in this
years' Rotor Request for Proposals.

The previous efforts indeed are not
being maitained, from what I know.
I know the projects you mentioned,
and also the ILX code generator
developed by Don Syme at MS, that was also
in GHC's codebase.

So far we have looked into the existing
research/implementations of functional
languages/Haskell for JVM and .NET and done some
small prototypes, to evaluate
possible implementation strategies.
We are therefore still in the early stages
of development.
