That's Discover 2.0.  We're expecting a release next month, but there
are already milestone releases available.

OS-dependent components have been completely modularized in Discover
2.x, so BSD support is merely an issue of telling discover how to ask
the kernel for hardware information.  We had the BSDs in mind when
designing Discover 2.x.


A good place to start is the manual:
