NetBSD/atari 1.2 was the second formal release of NetBSD/atari. It runs on both the Atari-TT and Atari-Falcon. In the future, the MegaST-PAK/3 systems may be supported, but that largely depends on contributions from others.

Leo Weppelman was the maintainer of NetBSD/atari at the time of the 1.2 release.
