Please help me understand lens "classes"

DA, FA, F....etc

What are the main differences between these lenses and which are still available new?

Thanks in advance!

Have a look here Pentax Lens Terminology

Basically, most of the DA lenses are current and available, as are the 3 FA 31/43/77 mm Limited lenses.
