I saw the Gerbers but I was hoping they had released the original drawings. Gerbers are too difficult to change and redrawing would take a long time and possibly introduce errors that need to be fixed...

Regarding the comment about the input voltage, the ADP3336 has maximum 400mV dropout voltage so in theory 6.4V at the input should be enough. I had a quick look and there are heaps of (simple 3-pin) DC-DC converters to get 12V down to 6.5V. For example this ($10) or this ($15). The first one is only 0.5A. Of course this needs to be separate from this board.

The round board had worse noise performance and would need a custom made housing. Square may be the one to go for, at least until they fix the round one.
