UC4H RangeFinder v0.03:
• Initial release of firmware for UC4H range finders
• Supports the TFMini and VL53L1x
• Emits the UC4H specific DSDL message olliw.uc4h.Distance, allowing dense and information-rich data transmission important when many range finders are used
• Includes a UAVCAN tunnel bridge for range finders with serial port, such as the TFMini
• New improved frame scheduling method for the UAVCAN tunnel bridge

UC4H Gps-Magnetometer-Barometer v0.28:

UC4H Bootloader v0.07:
• Recovery pin: grounding SWD-CLK or SWD-IO on power-up will force the bootloader
• Vendor specific status code counts flashed pages (1kB)
• more robust (recovery should never be needed, pl drop a message if this happens)
