Just received a new Ethernet Shield (via SparkFun), but it is neither the V1 nor V5 as shown at http://arduino.cc/en/Main/ArduinoEthernetShield. "www.Arduino.cc", "Made in Italy" and "Ethernet Shield with logo" are silkscreened so my guess is, it is "official" version.

Any suggestions on finding a schematic for this version?

CODE is a mass noun and should not be used in the plural or with an indefinite article.

SparkFun certainly ought to be able to answer some questions about it.

SparkFun is simply reselling what is presumably the Arduino product. They should know, but at this point their tech support is chasing it down. You would think the webpage could be updated if a new version is shipping.

I've got one of those from Adafruit, so it must just be the current rev.

30 Apr 2011, 9:55, UK time (4:55am New York): Sparkfun out of stock again, and either haven't noticed, or have decided not to answer (yet) questions about "What was it you were selling late April 2010"

Some Progress...
Down at the bottom of the Arduino Buy Page, http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Buy it says
Quote
Manufacturing
SmartProjects handles the manufacturing of all the Arduino products, with the exception of the Arduino LilyPad, Pro, and Mini Pro from SparkFun and the Arduino Nano from Gravitech.

Wandering over to SmartProjects' site http://www.smartprj.com/catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=58 BINGO, the board which was added 20 February 2011. Lists some great New available features: Micro SD card connector with active voltage translators, Power Over Ethernet ready, On board reset controller and NOW Compatible with the Arduino MEGA board.

Unfortunately, I could not find any Contact facility or link on their website to ask about documentation. Would you do business with a company that does not list an anddress, phone or any other means of contact?

Hopefully, now that we are 60+ days out from product release Arduino will get around to updating their information... I'm still waiting.

It wouldn't be the first time Sparkfun has sold 'dodgy' Arduino stuff.  I recall an incident a while back when they were flogging knock-off Duemilanoves as 'real' ones.  All allegedly of course........  smiley-wink

This isn't a dodgy product - it's an official board but no doubt the Arduino team have been too busy to write up about it.

Sunny - not a cloud in the sky (well there wasn't earlier and I can't see any out of this window) but pretty windy.
