The v0.9 prototype hardware has been received and assembled and is now undergoing initial tests. So far, I am happy with its performance and, aside from maybe a silkscreen placement here and there, I have not found any hardware problems. I have been able to test the home-brew 8-bit I/O port, the three 8255 I/O ports, and the 8251 USART. Unfortunately, i forgot to add the real time clock to my last component order so i just got that on order today. I am sending some out to beta testers and if things still look good in a few weeks I will add the build files to the project site and order a batch of v1.0 boards to put up on tindie and ebay.
