So, here we are in the middle of December. However, home page doesn\'t show any ETA for models B (actually home page doesn\'t update since Nov.6) yet.
Any good news???

Thanks.

I think you misread, the last comment is 6th Dec, as of 8 days ago the boards appear to still be in PCB stage.

There have been a few surprise supplier delays, so the 100 beta boards are only being manufactured as we speak, which is a good week late. Next comes intense testing, and then real manufacture by 10,000 batches. The Q4 deadline for commercial availability may be missed, or barely made, especially with the hollidays coming up.

We *don\'t* have finished boards yet, I\'m afraid - don\'t know where that came from! As soon as we do, you\'ll be the first to hear about it.

obarthelemy: I think Gert meant his run of prototype expansion boards (the \'gertboard\').
