Same here, the faster processor would be so useful.  Could try some super sweet stuff.

I carefully watched Massimo Banzi's presentation he personally gave May 19th, 2012, at Maker Faire (link below).  I paid extra attention to the topic related to the 32-Bit "Due" and I heard two very important points:  1) the "Due" will be out some time in June, and 2) the price will be cheaper than a Mega (retails $65 USD at adafruit.com).

The Due is almost 3 months late assuming Banzi meant June 2012 and not 2013.  I don't have a problem with Arduino keeping their product lines and release dates close to their chest.  But if you make a public announcement, as was done in two Maker Faires, and you announce a release date, then it becomes a commitment and commitments must be honored.  Missing a commitment is not serious if an explanation is issued.  The Arduino founders and product lines are the best, and frankly, inspirational.  I see Banzi as the Steve Jobs of open source microcontrollers.  I'm sure one of the founders will do the right thing and give the Arduino community an update.  Thank you.

Fingers crossed that something will be announced a the N.Y. Maker Faire at the end of the week.

When is that maker faire?  Today, Tomorrow?

Doesn't look like he needs much help now :)

Nice board.

Yea, it's already completely funded, but its still a good ARM-3 board

They announced the Due will be released on Oct. 22. There will be an updated IDE to support the Due and all of the other Arduino boards. The announcement said the IDE  will make it much easier to support new tool chains and thus add support for new hardware going forward. Not a lot of detail yet. There will also be a new program called " Arduino at Heart" to be something like the Intel Inside program. It's to allow products to show they are using Arduino at the heart of there product.

I was kind of hoping they would use a seperate IDE to support the Due rather then shoehorn it into the 8 bit IDE, and therfore subject us 8 bit users to all the new bugs and 'features' the new intergated IDE will surely have.
"Aduino at Heart", sounds kind of corny to me, but I never did understand the marketing side of this business.

Provided the new IDE will sit alongside the older versions, as they do now, that shouldn't be too much of a problem.

(also, this is supposed to be using the same structure that has been used in ChipKit (PIC32) for a while now, and more recently for Teensy3.  The Arduino IDE has been moving toward this multi-platform capability rather gradually, and I wouldn't expect any major problems.)  (Though some people rightfully complain about the increased size of the download...)

They announced the Due will be released on Oct. 22.

Did they announce the important details yet (price, what Arm chip is used as the base, what is the clock speed, what is the power draw, how much memory does it have, how many digital/analog/pwm pins exist)?  I would have expected arduino.cc/en/Main/Hardware/ to have a new entry for the Due within minutes of the announcement being over.
