Is the breakout compatible with the new Pi B+?

Would replacing your 26 pin female header with a 40 pin header work with the B+?

Hi rdbrown,

Sorry for the slow reply on this.

The answer is "kind of." The PiBreak 26 pin header does fit cleanly onto the 40 pin header of the B+, but the bottom of the board fouls the moved Ethernet socket header so it doesn't sit quite flat:

(Apologies for crummy photo.)

Electrically it's fine, it just doesn't look neat and of course the additional I/O pins don't appear on the breakout.

We'll work on getting out a "PiBreak Plus" soon. :)
