Will R3 Zeal60RGB PCB support split space bar?
« on: Fri, 21 July 2017, 14:05:08 »
Hi Zeal,

When will R3 of Zeal60RGB PCB happen and will the R3 support split space bar?

I am eager to use my Zealios on a Zeal60 but I fell in love with split space bar.

Currently not planning to add a split space to the Zeal60, sorry. R3 will happen once we finish shipping out everyone's current R2 order.

Not natively. There's a commit on github if you want to read about the mod.

Semi-hijacking thread since I'm also planning on getting in on the next round.
Does the Zeal60 support Holtites? If so, I'm pretty sure I'm just going to completely switch all my 60% collection to Z60, since I would be able to make do with far fewer keyboards :)

Of course it should fit the Holtites - Zeal even sells Holtites receptacles on his website for some small profit - and big convenience for those who are looking for these to perform such a mod.
