So, boards, parts, stencils have been ordered. As many of you may know, the Coronavirus really caused a lot of damage to the Chinese people. Many people had to be quarantined for 14 days and a great many people have died from the recent illness. These are all very sad things to happen. This has also affected almost all shipping services from China. DHL suspended all services until this past Monday and they are now catching up with orders I placed a month ago, during the Chinese New Year Celebration. My PCB house suspended manufacturing for an extended time.
Time for the good news. The boards are finished with production and they should ship soon. The parts are shipped and on their way. I will not be able to make the 20th of February shipping date for Beta Release boards though. I’m going to set a new date for the 13th of March. Of course, I want to have them out as soon as possible, but I think it would be safer to ask for a little patience and push it out just a few more weeks. You are all very amazing people and I truly appreciate each of your support. Thank you all very much.
