It certainly does; I have a number of the Baofeng radios, as well as several Icom models, two Yaesu models and a Wouxun, and it's really nice to be able to use the same single software package to program them all. I still have to make a programming cable for the Icom radios, but there is a site that shows you how to do that here http://mw0gkx.co.uk/radprog/icomhw/opc478.htm . Please note that the link on the Chirp website is no longer valid, and this new link has exactly the same information, since it is the personal  site of the maintainer of the other one.

THANKS Chirp developers! In the past few days, I have programmed 4 Baofeng UV5Rradios of various vintage, a Kenwood TH-F6, a Yaesu VX-8GR, and Wouxun KG-UV8Dand KG-UVD1P radios using Chirp latest daily build. (20150702). I found 4 generic programming cables in my programming box,all apparently Prolific chipped or clones, all worked. All the cable chips wereidentified as Prolific by Windows or by Linux. I have used Windows 7 on an Asus laptop, Windows 7 runningin Virtual Box on a MacBook Pro, Kubuntu running in Virtual Box on the MacBookPro, and Ubuntu 14.04 running on an HP Spirit 13 (I dumped Win 8) to do theprogramming. Chirp just worked on all of that hardware and different operatingsystems. I briefly tried to get Chirp going native on the MacBook Pro, butdidn’t spend the time as Chirp was working great on the Mac inVirtual Box. Things I learned: plug in the programming cable afterChirp is running; and you have to find the correct port that the programmingcable is on.  Chirp just works!!! THANKS! THANKS!! THANKS!!! Mitch W4OA
