A new version of the X5 mini has been released.. Looks like some significant upgrades.

Good: 1/128th stepper drivers!
Bad: Enough ports for only one extruder, and the board has pins for an Ethernet connection, but no actual socket.

Unless they were going to add more ports, so we could at least run a Diamond hot end, they needn't have bothered. Didn't the old board have two extruder ports? I don't get the logic in releasing such a powerful controller with support for only one extruder.

I suspect the missing features are for price point.
It would be nice if they would release a more full featured model instead of just the mini.
