After 5 years the IEEE 1275-1994 standard got withdrawn by the IEEE Standards Association. This does by no means implicate that this standard is abandoned or dead. There are several commercial implementations of Open Firmware and a quite reasonable number of hardware vendors support it. IEEE sold the rights to distribute the standards document to Global Engineering who still offer it.
