Phew! All of the pre orders are shipped now and at the moment we don’t have any open orders. At this point we have to thank the pre orders for there patience, unfortunately everything took a little bit longer as we had hoped. Nonetheless, we now have the majority of Bricks and Bricklets in stock in big quantaties. We also bought a surplus of the components that were hard to come by. In the future we will be able to reproduce stuff at short notice.
An exception are currently the LCD Bricklets, we have still difficulties with them. The LCD 20x4 Bricklets are currently sold out and we are not taking pre orders for them. We will activate pre orders as soon as we have a fixed date. We don’t want to move delivery dates again. There are however still some LCD 16x2 Bricklets in stock.
Mac OS X
There is more good news for the OS X users. Except for some small details we have the Brick Viewer and the Brick Daemon running on OS X. We will release the first versions very soon.
Unfortunately we found out that the configuration of the Chibi Extension was too complicated and too complex. For that reason we have restructured it a little bit.
If you had problems understanding the Chibi configuration you can update now, there is new documentation, a new Brick Viewer and a new Master Brick firmware available. The underlying API stayed the same, if you wrote a program to configure your Chibi Extension you don’t have to change anything.
New and improved hardware
Also worth mentioning here again may be our new products in the shop. There is now an Analog In and Analog Out Bricklet, a Step-Down Power Supply with 5V output (you can e.g. power a Raspberry Pi or Beagle Board with it), 1m and 2m Bricklet cables and a Starter Kit for Tinkerforge beginners.
