The B612 organization has been resurrected, but no mention of a connection with BOINC was
mentioned (I could have missed something.). My information was obtained, after Googling
"B612", a few minutes, ago.

There is a B612 foundation (dot org) that is, from their website, interested in protecting the earth from asteroid strike. No mention of BOINC. There is a mention of PSI (Planetary Society Inc, who used to run Orbit@home) of collaboration for "education and outreach". No mention of Orbit@home though.

Maybe further news will be forthcoming.
