Does this support virtual strings?

Virtual Strings are on the FPP ToDo list, but I haven't got to it yet.  When I add it to FPP, the plan is to set it up to allow integration into all of the direct-attached string outputs that FPP supports on the Pi and BBB including the Pi string hats and the F16-B/F4-B outputs.

You must not get much sleep.   :D

I don't, but my TODO list is also a few pages long.  Most development time is earlier in the  year, but had a few things popup so didn't get as much done this year as I hoped.  Am gearing up for January though.... :)

Support FPP
