Blinking Happily

Hi ! Just wanted to share this : the first prototypes of Bitbox rev2 PCBs have arrived (at last !)
So I couldn't resist building one and writing / uploading (using SWD) a very quick test program : it ... blinks ! (meaning I didn't screw up the MCU soldering it :)

Thanks to Marcus for his help on this release !

I'm not dead !
This rev2 will add : 32k colors, stereo sound, USB gamepad connectivity, UEXT expansion ports ...

(edit) Just a small update : VGA gen has been tested OK, SDIO flies at more than 6MB/s on the right conditions, sound is OK (with a small update)  and USB works ! All this needs to be upgraded in a whole new kernel, but independently all reporting OK !
