Continued use of "HAL" in FreeBSD

I have read that 'HAL' is now considered depreciated and that it is no
longer being actively maintained. I have read many articles describing
its short comings, etc. I even came across this URL:, while not directly connected to
FreeBSD, it is interesting.

I was just wondering what the FreeBSD community is doing in regards to
"HAL"? Is there any work being done to replace it?
