Move digital pins 8 to AREF into 2.54mm Grid

No offense but its really annoying to make shields for this spacing.

cheers

But that would mean that my shield would no longer fit.

or any other shield

(personally i dont use them at all but thats a different story)

D'Oh sorry didn't think about that... ok stupid idea.. BUT schould there ever be a not-downwards conpatible arduino, remember this ;-)

cheers!

The Seeedunio folks have placed extra connector pads on 1" grids in their latest series of Arduino clone boards, Just drop in another female connector and you can mate up with standard spacing proto board, or use the existing connector and standard shields fit. I think that is the tack that the Arduino folks should follow if they ever do a new board layout.
