I'm pleased to announce that RAIDframe version 1.1 is now a kernel
device driver in NetBSD-current.  RAIDframe, from the Parallel Data
Laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University, is a framework for rapid
prototyping of RAID structures, and includes both a RAID simulator and
a device driver for a limited number of architectures.  The RAIDframe
driver in NetBSD-current is a full RAID implementation, including
levels 0, 1, 4, 5, hot spares, and more, and is available for all
NetBSD platforms.  The base code for RAID level 6, parity logging, and
a number of other features is present in the driver, but requires
additional testing and debugging.
