Intel has announced the end-of-life timeline for the Intel® Curie™ module, and will discontinue manufacturing Arduino 101* development boards, powered by the Intel Curie module. Intel is actively working with alternative manufacturers to continue to make the Arduino 101* development board available to the market. To help customers manage through the Arduino 101* discontinuance, Intel will support last time orders of Arduino 101* products through September 17, 2017 and will fulfill those orders through December 17, 2017. Software support for Arduino 101* and other Intel Curie-based development boards will continue to be provided through the Arduino IDE available for download from arduino.cc. There are no further software releases of the Intel® Curie™ Open Developer Kit (ODK) planned. The current level of community forum-based support for Intel Curie products will continue to be available from Intel through September 15, 2017. After September 15, 2017, Intel will make its online resources available for review only and maintain availability to the Intel Curie community until June 15, 2020. Files licensed under open source licenses will continue to be generally available in binary and source code on GitHub.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
