I shipped the last of the American GoodFET20 requests today. Please contact me if yours hasn't arrived. Orders to Europe will be sent next week, while I'm in Paris, Besançon, and Stockholm.
I'm now using the MSP430F2618 for GoodFET development, as it will run at 16MHz without a crystal. There are some bit errors on a few of these boards, owing to the accidental erasure of Info Flash by the bootloader. Until rebroadcasts are implemented, continue to construct your boards with the 1612 or 1611. The upcoming GoodFET30 will migrate the project entirely to the 2xx series, breaking compatibility with TI's firmware.
The Python clients are presently being refactored at the same time as the command structure is combined. Please contact me if you are interested in building a client for C# or Cocoa that will be easier to distribute.
Thanks to a generous EVK donation, MSP430X2 support is underway, which will allow such chips as the MSP430F5438 and the CC430 Zigbee SoC devices to be programmed. I've got the basics working, and full support for writing Flash memory ought to be ready rather soon.
I'm considering a plugin architecture that loads new modules into RAM, a GoodFET iPhone attachment, and all sorts of other crazy things. Comment with any feature requests below.
