Native bootloader support for NetBSD/luna68k ELF kernel has been committed
. It's based on 4.4BSD/luna68k's "Stinger" bootloader
written back in 1992 and 1993, and now we can load NetBSD/luna68k kernels from any SCSI disks
or over LANCE Ethernet
both on LUNA-I and LUNA-II.

The new z3rambd(4)
driver allows using Zorro III RAM boards (like ZorRAM and BigRamPlus) as swap space. If the kernel is built without this driver, it is also possible to use these boards as normal RAM memory in some configurations (which was the usual behaviour). However, it might have performance consequences, it is advised to use Zorro III RAM as swap space where possible.
