I received the new boards at the end of last week (one of them can be seen in the image - white PCB with ENIG finish and black silkscreen) and will be assembling one of them this weekend (the plan was to do it today but I haven't received all of the components yet). The remaining boards will be put on eBay once I have assembled one.

As mentioned in the previous log post, this board is a new design which adds an additional IC (an EEPROM IC) to the single chip computer which allows full size programs to be saved.

Update (28/11/14): I still haven't yet received the two capacitors for the voltage regulator (C1 and C2 in the picture) but I will be assembling the rest of the board this weekend. Once I receive the capacitors and test the board, the remaining boards will be put up on eBay. Hopefully they will come on Monday so I can have the board completed the same day.
