Yes, but they have a different GPIO port dimensions (26 pins vs 40 pins), so you need a bit different cable - shorter connector on one side, but the pinout is the same, so the silly / simple way to do it is just to cut off everything beyond those 26 pins, and glue the connector back together (as after cutting it will try to fall apart), not putting the glue over connector pins.

These are the supported models now:http://joo.kie.sk/cosmosex/rpi_models.jpg
As mentioned, for B you need a shorter connector on one side, and you also need to move the spacing pillars in the box to different positions, as they also changed the holes position. For the two spacing pillars which will be under the RPI PCB, where there are no holes in the older B version - use plastic pillars, so you wouldn't short circuit anything on the PCB.
In the previous batch of CosmosEx you could order between box & cable prepared for version B or version B+, but that caused complications on my side, and also people who used version B didn't like the bigger holes in the front panel of the box. So in this batch the box and cable is prepared for version B+, which is the same as for RPi 2 and RPi 3, so it will be fine for the future.
Please note that the buyer's page (and thus your order) says: 'CosmosEx device - prepared for Raspberry Pi B+'.
There are 2 guys (tIn and tuxie) currently looking on the transition to Raspbian and speeding up the boot, so this transition to Raspbian might happen in the next weeks or months, and then the CosmosEx will work with RPi 2 and RPi 3, too.
So your options are:
- move the spacing pillars for version B, replace 2 of them with plastic versions, cut down the 40-pin connector to 26-pin and use your version B, or...
- wait few weeks / months for the transition to Raspbian, mount RPi 2 / RPi 3 as it is (no connector cutting, no pillars moving)
I am sorry for this situation, I should update the pictures on the page and be more explicit about the RPi version (I thought it would be enough in the ordered item description).
