    I delayed some projects waiting for this to be back in stock and reading this makes me more than happy! Good job!

    Now… Do you have some info on the ubuntu image? I see that ubuntu was remoevd from olimage in this commit: https://github.com/OLIMEX/olimage/commit/da9b0523802254c6b5c3ac2311c0dd5af1944df3 . Do you know if ubuntu jammy will be supported? If yes, do you have a time estimate?

    Thank you for all your efforts!

    Will IC like T20 also return to the shop? I wonder why A64 hasn’t yet.

    Too bad the A64-OlinuXino have 5V DC power supply in contrast to the 8..24VDC of the A20-OLinuXino-MICRO.

    Good news! I have a doubt, what´s the difference between Product Variant: GD32-E407 and STM32-E407 on DEVELOPMENT BOARD FOR STM32F407ZGT6 CORTEX-M4 MICROCONTROLLER WITH ETHERNET, USB HOST, USB-OTG

      You probably meant to reply to the article about the GD32 boards here: https://olimex.wordpress.com/2022/07/15/gigadevices-gd32-boards-replacements-for-the-popular-stm32-are-now-in-stock/
      The difference between all pairs of boards is that the producer of the microcontroller (MCU) for the boards with prefix GD32- is a company named GigaDevices, while the original STM32- boards have an MCU from STMicroelectronics.
      GigaDevices claims to produce chips that are (mostly) pin-to-pin compatible with their STM counterparts i.e. they should be functionally equivalent = do the same job, have the same specs, be a drop-in replacement.
      Olimex says (in the article linked above) that all their tests so far confirm this (with the exception of the missing two-wire JTAG SWD interface).
      There can of course be other unknown edge cases e.g. with obscure/undocumented parts of the chip, you can search the Internet in case others have also shared their experiences with GD MCU chips.
