    Any plans for 4x40 support?

    (I know you're really busy, I just wanted to know if it was on the cards).

    It will work with 4x40 but it will use only the 20 first chars of each lines.

    I can in the future give the possibility to using fully the 4x40

    But not the 4x16 or 2x16 or 2x20 because I really think that this size is too small for the application.

    The supported controler type is the HD44780

    Ahh, nice. Something to look forward to. Keep up the good work coyote.

    (If you want, I can help with testing the 4x40)
