Developers notes:
-- enh(dkulp) Update the "Strobe" strand type to actually strobe in the preview
-- bug (gil) SuperStar import updates. Fix morph default values to match recent changes. Subtract offset before doing mod.
Add option to flip Y for visualization imports.
-- enh(dkulp) Allow start channel to be specified in #:# notation where first part is the output and the second is the offset from the start of that output. So 3:1 is the first channel of the third output.

-- bug(dkulp) Fix #205 - Spriograph D animation not working
-- enh(dkulp) Add Shimmer option to On and ColorWash

The following are the Open issues that have been closed over the last 5 days.
We now have Steve Giron working triaging the bugs. He has gone through all open bugs (>90) and
closed bugs where the
1) problem is now fixed,
2) closed the bugs if they were trivial (with the original users input), or
3) we actually know we fixed the bug (you would see dan or gil as commenting on bug) or
4) We document that it is not a bug but is performing as it was designed.
5) Bug closed because it is a duplicate of another bug
If you see an issue closed that you think is still an issue, please re-open the issue.
