I thought Pi day was 31st April. :open_mouth:

A warning for anyone thinking of getting one - there’s a danger of shorting GPIO pins. See this:

Nice iterative upgrade. The new changes won’t really benefit our application much, but more speed for the same price is always welcome! I don’t anticipate any compatibility issues. We have a couple of units on their way to test, arriving tomorrow and in due course, probably about 1-2 months or so we will switch to shipping the Pi3+ as standard with all units from the shop.
