Btw, for what it's worth, I've updated my Rpi amateur radio doc to include various specs and details of the new board as well a new feature sections like adding a variable speed fan, light sensor and IR transmitter support, improved security hardening steps, etc.

Hello Everyone,

If you haven't already heard, the Raspberry Pi Foundation has released a new Raspberry Pi Zero named the "Zero 2 W".  It essentially is the same as the Zero W but now has a four-core processor similar to the Rpi 3 (not the 3+).  This means we now have a much more modern processor design with four CPU cores instead of one.  This does come at a power consumption cost but it might be possible to disable some of the cores to lower the power down.  Time will tell on what's possible but also being on a newer CPU design, a lot more alternative OSes will become available for this SBC:
