As far as I know it's still available direct from Numato, but if
you're not in a hurry I don't think it makes sense to opt for it.
Unlike the Turtle it doesn't have ethernet or usb. Numato sells an
expansion module with an ethernet phy which should be possible to make
use of, but nobody's done that or focused on developing support for
it.
