Dianemo-Rpi2 Preview Release for Raspberry Pi2
A new Era in Smart Home Technology
We are looking for people who are interested in getting early pre-view access to Dianemo-RPi2 - our port of Dianemo to the new Raspberry Pi2 board. Yes we're talking about a full Core/NC running on a credit card sized Raspberry Pi2 board - the totally silent, tiny and low-energy Core many of us have been waiting for is actually here for just $35 USD! Dianemo-Rpi2 is a brand new platform that will receive exciting, leading-edge new technology updates regularly in the months ahead. These updates alone are going to be worth joining the trial for. Get involved now and help us shape a whole new era in Smart Home technology.
So if you would like to participate in the Rpi2 pre-view you can purchase an ARM only Dianemo license (see below for details) to join the trial. Joining the trial by purchasing a preview license does not obligate you to participate in any specific way - we would simply ask you, if you have the time, to take a few minutes to report any issues you experience during the trial period. Of course you also have to own, or be willing to purchase a new Rpi2 board too - its hard to get involved without one! All participants in the trial will receive a new Dianemo License for use on their Rpi2 and for trial participants your license will allow you to install Dianemo-Rp2 on as many Rpi2's as you like
(as long as they are owned by you)

Dianemo-Rpi2 ARM Only License - $99 USD **One time Cost**-
If you are interested in Dianemo-Rpi2 then we are now making available an ARM only Dianemo license for $99 USD. This license works like our current X86 license in that it entitles you to updates and email support for the lifetime of the product. This license is only
for ARM hardware and will only be available at this price for a limited period. Once we ship Dianemo-Rpi2 licenses will only be available on a yearly subscription basis. Your trial license will allow you to install Dianemo-Rpi2 on as many Rpi2 boards as you like (the only limitation is that they must be owned by you). At the completion of the trial this license will function as a normal license and will continue to function normally for as long as Dianemo-Rpi2 is available. It will also not require you to pay a yearly subscription.
To participate please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
with 'Dianemo-RPi2 Preview' in the subject line. Please indicate that you want to purchase an ARM only license in the body of your email and also include you Paypal details.

David Hunt Benchmarks the Rpi2 against; Rpi1 B+, Beaglebone Black, Intel Edison, Imagination MIPS Creator C120; http://www.davidhunt.ie/raspberry-pi-2-benchmarked/
(*Interestingly the Intel Atom based Edison is not that far ahead of the Rpi2 in performance terms but is at least 3x more expensive because of the requirement to add a Baseboard to the main Edison board.*)
We'd be very pleased to have you join the Preview and get involved in contributing your input about the direction that Dianemo-Rpi2 is driven in.
All the best
