Hi, I tested now arduino ide 1.5.8.3 and confirm that is possible upload code to samd21xplained board via edbg on native port no activity, no enumeration.
That is the version of 1.5.8.3 from arduino.org, not arduino.cc presumably. And so it begins...
Please ask questions in the forum so everyone can benefit. PM me for paid work.

I see Adafruit has now raised the price to $55, and their site says they're out of stock.

Not sure what that means, if anything?

It means that is what people in the U.S. are willing to pay for the Zero.  It's the same price as a Beaglebone Black, so I question the "bang for the buck" concerning this latest board.  I wonder where the DAC port is on the board, it wasn't silkscreened according to the pictures on her website.  I suppose it's to the left of the IOREF port?

I'm betting it's out of stock because so many people know about .org .cc conflict and want a slice of the action.
My mother said I could be anything I wanted. But I don't want to be anything I wanted. I want to be an engineer!

Limor & Phil showed one on video.  They talked about Zero while very carefully & awkwardly avoiding saying anything about the conflict.  Phil starts out saying "Well, this is going to cause some problems..." at 37:59 and Limor says "we had the order booked already, so it's what it is".

Arduino Zero Pro now available at Adafruit!
See for yourself!
$50
$55 for a Cortex-M0? That's insane!

For $13, try new LaunchPad MSP432 with a 48 MHz Cortex-M4F, 256 KB of Flash and 64 KB of RAM running on the same Wiring / Arduino framework plus RTOS capabilities!

What precisely does "running on the same Wiring / Arduino framework" really mean?

Do not shuffle.
The libraries are mostly written by the community of volunteers, They cost nothing to the board manufacturer.
They do not have to be used to establish the price of the board.

The price of the board is a market price : The sellers have estimated the max price the customer accepts to pay.  This price has nothing to do with the actual price.

Mbed forum has now two sub-fora : Japaneese and Spain. It is important to note it.

Looks like Federico Musto has posted his side of the story.

I'm curious what everyone who's been waiting to hear the other side thinks?

My Zero Pro arrived today (Monday), ordered from CPC Farnell on Friday... before I was aware of the Arduino camp split!

cpc.farnell.com/arduino/a000104/arduino-zero-pro-eval-board/dp/SC13792

It has the grey headers, and Arduino.org info on back.

Now I just have to work out the best path to use it - go back from 1.6.2 to 1.5.8 or try to use it in Atmel Studio 6.2 ???

I didn't read ANY  side of a story in that link. What are you referring to?
I read a very clear side from CC though

I'll be releasing a version of the Zero soon myself if you don't want to throw money at the .ORG guy:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rabidprototypes/neutrino-the-tiny-32-bit-arduino-zero-compatible

It's not a full size Zero, but rather a small board like the Mini/Micro/Nano with all the unnecessary bits stripped away to get the price down to where it's reasonable.
