Massimo mentioned how people got the jump on them with Leonardo. I think they are going to get the Due released and update their hardware information at nearly the same time so that no one makes clones before the original is on the market.
Look, we need to accept that whatever they DO spend their time doing..Listening to the average Arduino user or reading "Their" forum isn't it.
they now have a full-time community guy, he introduced himself on the developer's mailing list a few months ago and we've not heard from him since.
This post on Hack a Day has some more info about the Due:http://hackaday.com/2012/10/03/finally-an-arm-powered-arduino/
It doesn't make sense to hear it there rather than here.
Is that link new today ?
