2002-09-13: New firmware for cats.
Simtec have released new firmware for cats, I recommend that people install it. It's been noted that it has fixed an issue relating to X on for at least one person.
The new firmware can be found on Simtec's website. Specifically on their cats support page. I would strongly recommend that cats users upgrade to 1.3. As the firmware allows for larger kernels, which means I'll be reenabling some devices in the -current INSTALL kernel.

2002-08-04: X support for cats.
NetBSD/cats now has in tree support for xfree86 4.2.0. Sets haven't been built yet, but anyone wishing to try X needs to update to the latest xsrc. Note that you need 1.6BETA or 1.6 -current as the server uses the /dev/pci0 interface. Non-current users will need to add USE_XF86_4=YES to /etc/mk.conf.
Note I'll be requesting pullups to 1.6, but they may not make it into 1.6.0.
Update 2002-08-19: Sets for 1.6 RC1 are now available from, in /pub/NetBSD/arch/cats/xsets The mirrors will probably pick it up in the near future.
