The new processors in this series as far as I know there is not and no more will be.
Existing processors are still produced and used. We use this processor is 4-5 years

Of the new things I would like to add the ability to use gpiolib with this type of processor.¢éì®&Þ~º&¶¬–+-±éÝ¥Šw®žË±Êâmébžìdz¹Þ)í…æèw*jg¬±¨¶‰šŽŠÝj/êäz¹ÞŠà2ŠÞ¨è­Ú&¢)ß«a¶Úþø®G«éh®æj:+v‰¨Šwè†Ù>Wš±êÞiÛaxPjØm¶Ÿÿà -»+ƒùdš_
