Update on the Community
On Tuesday 31st, we should launch a new area with production-ready single board computers. We will start with a selection of partners, welcoming board vendors to contact us so they can be added!
Through filters, sorting and text search, you will be able to search the board you need for your project. Then, if the manufacturer has a dedicated area in the community, they can give more details about theirs boards and ways to purchase them. If you are an embedded computer board manufacturer and not yet in the community, shout now.

SPAM, Account Creation Moderation and Security
In our lifestyle of instant access (and gratification), this additional step let to a drop of 50% of registrations (more exactly members not logging in after having been approved). That's why I tried to remove it...
During Europe and Asia business hours, 90% of new accounts are reviewed and approved within 10 minutes. Our loss of US staff affects our responsiveness during US mornings.
We thank you for your patience when you register.
If you are a little bit technical, you will have heard about a couple of OpenSSL vulnerabilities recently making the news. The ARM Connected Community is not affected by FREAK CVE-2015-0204 (SSLv3 is not supported) or CVE-2015-0291.
During our upgrade to the latest community software, we will also switch to https throughout instead of only for login/registration like it is today.
If you have any concern, or question, you're welcome to ask!
Next Community Maintenance
I'd like to remind you of the maintenance on Sunday 19th March from 10am UK time.
The community will have a downtime of maximum 1h, then you can expect degraded performance for a couple of hours, finally the new cookie popup will be visible.
A homepage announcement is posted and I will remove it once the maintenance is finished.
Every week, we pick a few items on the community we think you should see. You can also find featured content on the community homepage and on the overview page of each community.
