After 2002 the Z39.50 Implementors Group, for the most part, became (what is now) the SRU Implementors Group.   See http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/
 
There was however a meeting in June 2005 (Chicago) which covered bot SRU and Z39.50 matters, so that could be considered the "last" ZIG meeting. 
 
There was an SRU implementors meeting this past March (2006) at The Hague (Netherlands),  see http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/march06-meeting/output.html
and the next meeting will perhaps be Spring 2007.
 
The ZIG is not disbanded, the list (this list)  is still operational though not very active. The SRU list is much more active. See http://www.loc.gov/standards/sru/listserv.html

SRU can express all the same kinds of queries and responses as Z39.50,
but in a radically different way.  In theory, almost any application
that could be built using Z39.50 communication could instead be built
using SRU.

In practice, however, applications are constrained to use the protocol
or protocols supported by the servers they want to contact.  My
impression is that Z39.50 servers still greatly outnumber SRU servers;
and that the growth in Z39.50 server implementations is probably still
greater than that in SRU server implementations.

Because the ZING initiative (RIP) did not work on Z39.50 itself but on
its proposed successors.  But since that name is dead now anyway, it's
a bit of a fifteen-minutes-ago issue.
