What's the current availability of 9x12 cm sheet film? Looks like Freestyle only has Efke PL 100. Can't find the PL 25 M I used in the past. Any other good sources?

You could try FotoImpex (for the English catalogue, see http://www.fotoimpex.de/catalogus_novus_impexi_anglicus.pdf). I'm not sure if they have the Efke film you want, however they carry a few other brands (Adox, Foma, etc) in 9x12cm. Hope this helps.

Try Fomafoto (http://www.fomafoto.com/), they certainly stock 9x12 film, I bought some a few months ago. They are also an APUG sponsor.

Adox is Efke, it's returned to the original name; I don't know why, or why it changed to Efke in the first place.

Retro photographic in the UK also list only the 100 Adox film in 9x10, not the 25 or 50; (they also list Ilford FP4 and I think HP5 in 9x12) all three are listed in 5x4. Maybe Adox are not making the slower films in that size, which would be a pity.

Because EFKE took over Adox production, continued with the brand name, then the licensing agreement with Dupont came to an end. The Adox films always used to say made under license from Dupont.

The trade name lapsed and was later bought by Fotoimpex.

The trade name lapsed and was later bought by Fotoimpex.Yes, and Fotoimpex rebrands many things to "ADOX", even if they have nothing to do with the original ADOX.

Efke films are based on the old ADOX formulas, the emulsions have been improved many times by Fotokemika. They are still sold as Efke here in Sweden.

Efke = how "FK" (FotoKemika) is pronounced in Croatia.

Just like how "IHG" is pronounced "Ihagee" in Germany. :)
