We are also working on a MPIDE based board with a PIC32MX250 on it that is identical in size to the Teensy++ 2.0. I think you'll like it. I don't know when it will be ready for sale, but we're targeting this summer. First prototypes are already in hand . . .

... which already can work with MPIDE just fine. (The UBW32 that is.) All you have to do is use the chipKIT USB bootloader.

PIC32MX250 support would be awesome! Then I can turn my new Microstick II into a ChipKit :)

Are there any other types of Chipkit Boards that you guys would like to see? I only want to use uC that are already supported. I was thinking of making something like an Uno32 pro. Just like sparkfun uno pro but based around the Uno32. If I do decide to make the board I will make sure to document it all and post up the schematics along with the PCB layout and such.

If you guys come up with any ideas on some cool board to develop let me know! :D

Your wish will very likely be granted. :-) I know several parties are working on boards with this family.

Any news of new boards?

Competitors have been quite busy, with Arduino Due, Teensy 3.0, LaunchPad Stellaris LM4F, to name a few.

What answer Diligent/chipKIT is working on?

Well, there was a failed Kickstarter campaign that was for an MX DIP based board. The FubarinoMini (which is in DIP form factor but uses an MX250 SMT part) is designed, supported by MPIDE, and works great. Now we just need to get some built for sale. The FubarinoSD (which is in a really wide DIP form factor) is already for sale at SeeedStudio's webstore.

As far as other boards, at this point there are only a handful of people that I know of that are designing any chipKIT based boards (See above). I don't know if Digilent has plans for more chipKIT based boards, as the ones they have now are doing pretty well. It would be great if you had some time and would be willing to help out! The more chipKIT boards the better as far as I'm concerned.

I would like to use the PIC32MX250 (DIP28) in a project. Does MPIDE have a bootloader for this one?
