Our company is interested in RTEMS as a RTOS to offer on our series of
PowerPC CPU Boards. I have a few general questions:

1. Is version 3.6 the latest available? I saw some reference to a version
4.0 in searching the gcc mail archive.

2. Are there drivers available for Ethernet, SCSI disk, etc. or would these
have to be developed by us or contracted out to OAR? Has anyone else developed
these and placed them in the gnu copyleft?

3. In searching the web, I haven't seen any interest in RTEMS since the
end of 1996. Is RTEMS dead? Is there a successor to it?
