Great news. I guess I was right about the ESP8266 all along.

It looks like the I2C and DHT are going in now.
If you do a DHT22, please have a look at mine. Doing the decoding in an interrupt FSM seems to be way way more reliable than polling. I did a bunch of tests and once every few hundred thousand request a line didn't toggle, meaning I had to put all sorts of silly timeouts. Once I put the whole thing in the interrupt the reliability went up to 100% with over a month of testing.

I've got a generic question about the kickstarter: The follower and the driver rewards give access to the alpha/beta version of the firmware. With the stretch goal the source is now being released to backers right after the campaign has finished. Isn't that the same as the access to alpha, since one will be able to compile the code themselves? Or it is meant the binary alpha/beta versions distributed directly to backers?

Basically you are right. As the description of the campaign tells, the alpha version should get rewarded to the follower/driver level backers. Up to the 12k stretch goal nothing is mentioned about open-source access to the delivered firmware. This got rewarded to everyone by reaching this stretch goal.
Do not look further for your personal profit... it is open-source profit from now on ;)

@mianos: thanks for the valuable tips on the DHT22.

@platforma: backers will have compiled binaries emailed to them, that's the "silver platter" reward that we can offer :) Now that the 12k goal is reached, everyone (including non backers) can build the code themselves, yes.
