2x LDO Voltage Regulators? Yup! The first one is for the general operation of the board and the ESP32-S2, RAM and Flash.
The second LDO is for you to use to connect external 3V3 modules, sensors and peripherals, and it has programmable EN control tied to GPIO21 + it’s connected to the deep sleep capabilities of the S2, so if the S2 goes into deep sleep, the 2nd LDO is automatically shut down for you!
The FeatherS2 pre-release boards are no longer available for purchase now that the final release version is out, which you can grab from these locations:

This is the latest unstable release of CircuitPython that will work with the Unexpected Maker FeatherS2 Prerelease.
Unstable builds have the latest features but are more likely to have critical bugs.

Every time we commit new code to CircuitPython we automatically build binaries for each board and language. The binaries are stored on Amazon S3, organized by board, and then by language. Try them if you want the absolute latest and are feeling daring or want to see if a problem has been fixed.
All previous releases are listed on GitHub, with release notes, and are available for download from Amazon S3. They are handy for testing, but otherwise we recommend using the latest stable release. Some older GitHub release pages include the same binaries for downloading. But we have discontinued including binaries as assets on newer release pages because of the large number of files for each release.
