SO, I know theres a new dragon, and I heard its alot better... WHERE do I get it? Does Digikey have the new one and just did not update there picture?

http://search.digikey.com/script...

From this, it seems its the old one, and I don't want to get the old one -_-

But I want to buy a couple parts from digi-key...

so its kinda a big problem!

Also, if there is any other place thats good for buying parts, let me know :)

You should fill in your location in order for people to advice on suppliers. :)

Just ask Digikey if they are the new types with mounting holes, the picture is of the old type.

I haven't heard of this new type - and googling and searching around turns up nothing. How is the new Dragon different?

The one I got, which is the one photographed
in the "new dragon" thread that I wrote, came from Mouser.

That said, I'm not sure how you would ever know unless you actually asked the merchant.
Even then, the one on the phone may not know.

I doubt they will ever update the picture.
Only way to know if they got the new type is to ask them. They will probably have to open a box and see if the mounting holes are there. Or maybe look at the manufacturing date or revision number if there's a sticker on the outside of the box that tells this.
Just E-mil them the picture of bperrybap's new board so they can confirm if the ones they have in stock has the same holes. If a distributor is not willing to do this try another ditributor or try to ask them theserial# and compare it to bperrybap's serial# or try your luck. Since bperrybap got his from Mouser there should at least be good chances there.
It looks like bperrybap's Dargon board was manufactured October 20, 2008. So if you can find a board not older than this it will most likely be the new type.

I ordered a Dragon from Mouser on 06/26/09 and received the newer version. Now I just need the time to get it set up and working.
