Hard at work on next board revision

Hey everyone, this is Dan and I've been hard at work on the next revision of the board (that we hope is the one we ship) as well as thinking about the manufacturing text fixture design.   In a week or so I will order prototypes of the board for validation.  The firmware for this rev is done and has seen some testing on the modified rev 00 board.

Here are some screen captures from MCN Gerber Viewer.  Definitely easy to see the power paths.  Perhaps the most visible change is that we went to a stacked two-high USB connector for the power-switched outputs to allow an HDMI adapter to also be plugged into the Pi Zero.  The board is also 2 mm longer to accommodate the flex camera cable that the V1.3 Pi supports without interference with the ethernet break-out-board.
