I'm Not sure of that. I think that development has somewhat stalled. I
have line6 hardware that at the moment is not supported (HD500), and I
would like to take the shot. But the problem is that there are no specs,
and Line6 won't release any (I asked, several times, even offering to
accept some kind of stupid NDA). So I would need to reverse engineer
Windows drivers, and I don't have the knowledge to interpret captured
USB traffic, so I'm stuck as well.

I'll try to revive the line6-devel mailing list sending some traffic
captures and see if anyone can help or point me in the right direction.
I would like to see my HD500 running natively on Linux, and it's a nice
challenge to actually do some useful work for the kernel :)
