They are currently lifting the ventilation stack. You can see it live on the webcam.

A wonderful set of pictures from the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development. Their whole Chernobyl gallery is worth seeing. In the first picture, you can see the the top section of the ventilation stack on the ground, just under the orange scissors lift. In the third picture, you can clearly see the work being done in the turbine hall, and where the western side of the NSC will stay over it and the technology building.

In the ukrainian thread, VIUR posted some incredible pictures taken during the installation of the ventilation stack (which weighs over 80t). Here are a few.

After this is rolled over the power plant and sealed, will the city of Pripyat become habitable again?

Most of the city is irradiated, with pockets of radiation being lower or higher, depending where you are. Pripyat will most likely never be livable to humans again, at least not in our lifetimes. I'm also guessing that, due to the massive decay of the existing buildings, they'd have to raze everything and rebuild.
Since the original purpose of the city was to house the power plant workers and families, the powers that be will most likely leave it to nature.

They have to deconstruct the old chimney from the powerplant soon if they want to push the new safe confinement over the old one? Am I right?
