After a lot of good work by Dale Rahn (drahn@), Miod Vallat (miod@), Michael Shalayeff (mickey@), Theo de Raadt (deraadt@) and others, the new landisk platform for USL-5P and related machines is now stable enough to be official. This platform uses the Hitachi SuperH-4 processor (SH7751R), a 32-bit RISC chip popular for high performance embedded applications. Some other I-O Data models using ARM-based processors are supported under the armish platform.
Support for high capacity disks and many USB devices makes this a nice complement to other supported platforms, and opens up new possibilities where you want a small, low-power appliance. It also opens the door for other SuperH based devices. Though reliable now, this port is still in active development so expect to see more support coming up.
