New Mooncup and staining

I read a while ago that Mooncup was changing its manufacturing process so that the silicone will be slightly different (they said whiter, anyway). I have a Mooncup that's almost 2 years old, and it's perfect except that it stains very easily. Every period it gets stained a faint brown round the bottom of the outside and round the little bit of stem I have left. I get it clean each time with soap and hot water and a lot of scrubbing, but it's annoying. I don't really care what it looks like but the fact that it comes off means it's something on there and not just discolouring, so I have to scrub it off.

So my questions are:
Is the new version on sale yet? Anyone know whether it's in Boots shops yet?
If anyone has one, what are the differences? Any chance it stains less easily or is easier to clean (the holes have apparently changed a bit too)?
Or will discolouring show up even more on whiter silicone?
& I will love you forever if you post pictures.
