There is no official word from D-Link on this device reaching EOL.

I can find them in some stores in Australia as clearance stock, however, if a new model is on it's way then I'd rather wait for that.

Feature-wise, the DCS-2132L seems to closely match the functionality supported by the DCS-942L and more, although the form-factor is a bit different.  Nonetheless, I'll see if I can find anything out.

I just heard back from D-Link. At present there is no new direct successor to the DCS-942L that's on the market and there's no word on when a successor will be released. Typically, D-Link publishes a press release for new cameras months before they are available for consumer purchase. Given that no press releases were published specifically for a next generation replacement for the DCS-942L, my guess would be that even if there is a replacement on its way, the availability would at least several months off from the time an announcement is made.
