I got surprised by this too, when trying to use my camera through serial
cable. They've become /dev/cuad and /dev/ttyd for outgoing and incoming
respectively. See sio(4). (I needed /dev/ttyd0 for my camera)

HTH,

Dan

Isn't this also in the release notes?

From a quick scan (off the web page) the sio change appears only briefly at
"2.2 Kernel Changes". This was probably already in 5.4, no? Perhaps that's
why it's not very pronounced. I went from 5.X to 6.0 through cvsup and
UPDATING doesn't seem to have it either. It was no problem for me though,
just a matter of reading the man page.

I haven't checked the Handbook on this, but if nothing about sio is there
perhaps someone would want to update.
