Does it mean that we got stuck with D2Plug and should have gone for CuBox rather. I expect that D2 will be maintained as well.
I think it'll be beneficial to the D2Plug users now that there's a new computer (CuBox) using the Armada 510 chip. Development for the CuBox is pretty much the same as development for the D2Plug. Someone with a D2Plug needs to see if the CuBox kernel can be a drop in replacement for the D2Plug.
I just rebuilt the CuBox default kernel with my existing cross-platform tools. I don't have either a D2Plug or a CuBox (they're on order), so I can't test it.
