Comparison with Spark Core
« on: November 11, 2013, 11:52:38 pm »
Hi
Is there a chance you can program sketches  DigiX using the wifi connection like in SparkCore?
Because over ally DigiX is much better than Spark, but that little feature is very useful in some specific situations.

Thanks
Paolo

Everything is there to support it from a hardware standpoint - but the library and/or bootloader is not yet written for it - we plan to write one (if someone else doesn't first), but it won't be ready by the production release.

Great to hear  :D
I don't need it for the production release of course, I just wanted to be sure DigiX can support it.
It is reasonable to think that the feature could  be available by the first months of 2014?

Thanks for the great tool you are bringing us.

Paolo

Not likely to be ready by then unless the community contributes to it/makes it.

Nov 18 is the hopeful ship date, but I will put out an update very soon when I know more.

Will other rewards ship at the same time, or later? (the level-shifter boards and dual-backer rewards, for us Beta supporters)

No hurry. Just curious, because I like to keep my eye on the mailbox. :)

We're waiting on the level shifters still as well - as long as they show up at the same time, then other rewards will ship then as well - if they show up first then will start on them even sooner!
