:) If I knew I wouldn't be asking.

I understand that that the Pi 2 and Pi 3 boards have pretty similar layouts, but I've no idea if there are any changes in the chipset or timings which might require changes to wiPi.

I'd quite like to try a Pi 3, if only for the built in WiFi, but I'll stick with Pi 2 for now if wiringPi isn't available for it yet.

Cheers, J/.

The way you asked the question implied that it would need changing...

AFAIK wiringpi works on both Pi2 and Pi3

I don't know how similar the Pi2 and Pi3 chipsets are, but even if one is only a faster version of the other I suppose there could be issues, so it seemed worth asking if it was ready / tested / known to work.

Anyway, given that it does, I'll get a Pi3 and give it a go.

I just added wiringpi to my PI3 (sudo apt-get install wiringpi) running Jessie-Lite 2016-03-18, and it works.

I too have been using wiringPi on the Pi3 without issue.
