    A new and faster version of the Raspberry Pi 3, a single-board Linux computer,
    has been announced March 14 (Pi Day).
    https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/raspberry-pi-3-model-bplus-sale-now-35/
    This version costs the same $35 as the Pi 3 Model B and has a faster
    1.4Ghz processor, Dual-band 802.11ac ethernet, Bluetooth 4.2,
    Power-over-Ethernet support, GigE support over USB 2.0 and more.

    Hams may be interested in this change:
    "The wireless circuitry is encapsulated under a metal shield, rather fetchingly embossed with our logo. This has allowed us to certify the entire board as a radio module under FCC rules, which in turn will significantly reduce the cost of conformance testing Raspberry Pi-based products."

    802.11 is WiFi, not Ethernet. Ethernet is 802.3.

    Then the text is missing a comma.

    I literally just bought (2) RPis days before this announcement as act at as VPNs for the remote shackes. Though since they are small service VPNs, the extra horsepower wouldn't have mattered. Had I know, I would have waiting to get more for less.

    Correct, my bad. It's nice to see this platform continue to evolve, kudos to the developers.

    Hi all,
    does anyone try to run DVMega on this Pi? An image that works fine on old RPi Model B doesn't even boot RPi 3 B+... What's wrong? Bluetooth occupying IO at DVmega hat? I see the only rainbow square on my screen.
