 It might sound like this is going slowly, but actually, what's really going on is we were really ambitious, and even though a massive amount of work is being done by the community, things are taking time. Hopefully this post will give an idea of the scope of what we are trying to accomplish. It might sound like this is going slowly, but actually, what's really going on is we were really ambitious, and even though a massive amount of work is being done by the community, things are taking time.

 * Stepper drivers : The v2 and v2-pro will get Trinamic drivers. Say hi to silence and super high microstepping. For v2-mini, it'll be either Allegro or Heroic drivers, still working on figuring that out. * Stepper drivers : The v2 and v2-pro will get Trinamic drivers.

 * Soldering connectors to boards is a large part of the cost of a board, in order to make v2-mini cheaper, it will come with the connectors unsoldered. This and other of its characteristics should hopefully bring it down to prices comparable to the cheapest 32bit boards around at the moment. * Soldering connectors to boards is a large part of the cost of a board, in order to make v2-mini cheaper, it will come with the connectors unsoldered.

 * All boards are getting XT30/XT60 battery connectors for power input. Those are really nice, cheap, and easy to get, and will remove some of the current limitations of the input screw terminals. * All boards are getting XT30/XT60 battery connectors for power input.
