Quad-core 64-bit Pi 3 is official with WiFi, BT, and $35 price

Raspberry Pi Trading launched a $35 Raspberry Pi 3 SBC with a quad-core, 1.2GHz Cortex-A53 Broadcom SoC plus WiFi and Bluetooth.

In the course of a year, the Raspberry Pi has moved from one of the more retro community-backed SBCs on the market to one of the most cutting edge. A few days after the Raspberry Pi 3 story leaked online, the Raspberry Pi Foundation, Raspberry Pi Trading, and Element14 formally launched the shiny new 64-bit, wireless-enabled Raspberry Pi 3 Model B.

Today, that work takes a big step toward the mainstream with the release of the new Firefox 57 developer edition. The old Firefox developer edition was based on the alpha-quality Aurora channel, which was two versions ahead of the stable version. In April, Mozilla scrapped the Aurora channel, and the developer edition moved to being based on the beta channel. The developer edition is used by a few hundred thousand users each month and is for the most part identical to the beta, except it has a different theme by default—a dark theme instead of the normal light one—and changes a few default settings in ways that developers tend to prefer.
