    This release has lots of model changes.

    1) You can now set the starting address for each string. Dont worry, default behavior is same as before. If you need to set the starting channel click advanced in the model setup.
    2) You can now start your matrix or megatree in a) bottom left (this has always been the default), b) upper left, c) upper right, d) bottom right. This will support more people who, for eacmple, wrap their windows starting at the top.

    New effects

    In the meteor effect you now have

    1) Swirl1
    2) Swirl2
    3) StarField

    So release notes are
