    OMG OMG OMG, did you hear? There is a brand new Raspberry Pi! And this one's called the Model B+ and check it out...more USB ports, more GPIO, better power supply, four mounting holes, less sticky-out SD card! Yep, that's right, the fantastic engineers at Raspberry Pi HQ have blessed us with a new design. They've taken all the feedback over the last 3 years and rolled out a nice updated Pi with many fixes and extras...all at the same price! Take a deep breath and buckle up, because Adafruit has this freshness and we're going to break it down for you. We have a big tutorial that we're keeping updated, with all the nitty-gritty details, so check that out when you have a moment

    Here's a brief overview of what's new

    • Dual step-down (buck) power supply for 3.3V and 1.8V
    • 5V supply has polarity protection, 2A fuse and hot-swap protection (so you can plug/unplug USB without resetting the board)
    • New USB/Ethernet controller chip
    • 4 USB ports instead of 2 ports
    • 40 GPIO pins instead of 26. The top/first 26 pins match the original layout, 9 additional GPIO and 2 EEPROM Plate identification pins
    • Composite (NTSC/PAL) video now integrated into 4-pole 3.5mm 'headphone' jack
    • MicroSD card socket instead of full size SD
    • Four mounting holes in rectangular layout
    • Many connectors moved around

    What's not new:

    • Same basic size, 85mm x 56mm
    • Same Processor, Broadcom SoC running at 700MHz (can be overclocked)
    • Same RAM, 512MB soldered on top of the Broadcom chip
    • Same power connector, microUSB
    • Same software - be sure to run the latest Raspbian/NooBs but otherwise the overall Linux software is the same
    • First 26-pins of GPIO are the same
    • Same HDMI port
    • Audio part of the A/V jack is the same
    • Same Camera and DSI Display connector

    So, basically, its the same single-board Linux computer you've known and loved but all cleaned up and easier to use. The good news is many of your existing accessories like cables, hubs, keyboards, monitors, etc will work fine. Many Pi Plates (PCBs that plug into GPIO port directly) will also work.
    However 26-pin GPIO cables do not fit this means that you cannot use classic Cobblers, GPIO-cabled boards like the GertBoard/PermaProtoPi without a GPIO downgrading cable. Model B cases will not fit the B+, the cases must be redesigned for the B+ as so much has moved around! You also need to be running Raspbian or NooBs from after approx June 2014 since earlier ones do not have USB/Ethernet chipset support.

    We'll have more accessories for the B+ such as cases, Cobblers, and more very soon!
