Updates:

# 003 to 030020_01 (hardware update)
- Fixed unit calculating incorrect maximum frequency/duty cycle
- Keep TCP connection open persistently
+ Added refresh pulses to keep output capacitors charged, may result in dim visible pulsing when in strobe mode (without this some strobe triggers would be missed)

# 030020_02
- Fix truncation of device name when setting a name with a comma, by disallowing commas in device name
- Corrected several communication issues, particularly some commands failing to work correctly when issued over TCP

# 030020_03
- Significant fixes for Signatech data reading, resolved occasional incorrect reads that caused erroneous "lighthead disconnected" errors
+ Added watchdog timer to reset the controller in case of hard faults

# 030020_04
- Fixed some commands being truncated by the device

# 030020_06
- Performance fix for TCP; fix failure to parse some commands
- Fix non-responsivity when using TCP

# 030020_07-09
- [Incremental development]

# 030020_10 (latest update)
- Fix strobe mode using the trigger edge of the physical input rather than the configured channel
- Fix output turning off when mode is changed in particular ways
