    Although I can see the convenience of having headers pre-installed for most folks, I sincerely hope that the introduction of the BME-280 breakout with pins does not lead to the demise without pins. It would be a very big annoyance to have to first remove the straight headers to replace them with right angle headers. In my applications, I usually need them for the I2C side, and putting the header so that it is "across" the back side makes a very compact package. I then use 4 pin flat flex cable with crimp-on connectors, both from Digi-Key to connect to other boards. BTW, this cable is a LOT thinner than the typical ribbon cable, and can go through an operating window, or refridgerator door seal, with practically no effect on weather stripping.

    Also, I was glad to note that this week's crop ojf TIMI stuff mentions the "RGB" resolution in "FEATURES", indicating that they are color.
