The shop has been keeping us fairly busy recently and although we didn’t make a formal announcement, the Sleepy Pi has been in stock and available for a couple of months now. All the issues with the early boards were resolved and along the way the power consumption was lowered even further.
We’re got a new product for the Sleepy Pi. It’s a external programming adapter that plugs into the stacking header on the Sleepy Pi.
This allows you to host your development away from the Raspberry Pi and onto a PC, Mac or Linux machine. This is especially useful when you are debugging code around shutting down or waking up the Raspberry Pi. When it is self-hosted this can be difficult.
You can also use some third party Arduino debuggers like the one from Visual Micro
