My intent was to warn, those that order from RS/Allied, of what I believe was/is a dishonest policy.jamesh wrote:OK, you have made your point (multiple times).

Orders of Version 1.0 boards which were unable to be delivered will be re-sent as Version 1.0 boards.
If for any reason a Version 1.0 board has been returned due to a fault, again we will replace with a Version 1.0 model.
All other orders will receive a Version 2.0 board.
Thank you for your continued patience.
@sdjf: I have not heard of further shipments of ver. 1.0's lately. But there was a statement of a 21 day (business days I believe) shipping period for boards that were shipped by RS out of country. So hopefully we will not hear about any more ver 1.0's being delivered from now on. The shipping period should now be over.
The Foundation is not allowed to comment on any of this due to their contracts with their partners.
So I guess I will drop it until the next time!
