A new version is on the Horizon!
It will support the new RgbW chips. Further, it will support one library that allows you to select Dma, Uart, or Bitbang. So no more switching branches.
It will also support the Library Manager for installation; but short term only for Esp8266.
I will post more when its available; but I wanted to hear feedback on any feature requests.

great, will give it a try when it’s ready!
what’s the best search term on AliExpress/eBay for the RGBW strips? Still WS2812B?

I believe ws2812b are still RGB, SK6812rgbw will get you the correct ones. SK6812 do also come in just rgb, then they should be labeled as SK6812rgb; so be careful.
