Changes since 5.1.0

Instructions:

- Place it on a USB memory device and plug that into the P3 System Controller
- On the P3 System Controller, go to Hardware Setting -> Firmware to start the update

New Features & Improvements:

- Spread Tool for easy equal spreading of fixtures on the workspace
- Keyboard shortcuts for align & spread tools
- Shift + arrow keys move fixtures at 1/10th of pixel pitch
- Editing Device/Fixture number now waits for confirmation with enter
- Testpatterns are now drawn on workspace when activated (setup view & video input view)
- Testpatterns are no longer limited by viewport/scaling/offset settings
- Can activate testpatterns as background in setup view
- Can activate video input as background in setup view
- Can display background image / stage drawing in video input view and render video over it
- New DMX mode for legacy fixtures: Hybrid Mode (allowing pixelmapping thru Art-Net and fixture-per-fixture toggle between video and pixelmap)
- New DMX mode for legacy fixtures: PixelMap Mode (allowing pixelmapping thru Art-Net but no video)
- Render incoming Art-Net pixelmapping data in video input view (P3-100/200/PC only)
- Added option for loss of DMX/Art-Net (hold values or blackout)

Bug fixes:

Known issues:
- Toggle Fixture/Device Selection Keyboard shortcut broken on P3-050/100/150/200/300
- Controlling big screen with multiple P3-100 System Controllers may have synchronization issues (all resolutions)
- Signal input on P3-200 (DVI and SDI) is offset horizontally by 3 pixels (able to compensate via Video Offset parameter)
- SDI input on P3-200 unstable in specific conditions (connecting a random (non-used) DVI source solves this issue)
