* Added Industrial Ethernet to serial ES-5xx classes, improved default serial protocol to use utf8 encoding instead of ASCII (ASCII is a superset of UTF-8 so still supported fully), changed default terminating char to /n, linux line ending so give wider out of the box support for linux and windows 21/09/18
* Added BB-400 class 25/01/2018
    *Updated comments 14/12/17

*Updated analog event handler to support a list of IOList objects 23/09/16
* Added support for .NET Core and .NET Standard
* Fixed bug with ED-549 event handling 15/09/16
* Added analog functionality including events for support for ED-549 (ASCII only) and ED-560 (ASCII and Modbus)
* Changed handling of isAvailble, now only checks for isAvailable if isConnected is false
* Changed handling of isConnected, is now locked so multiple threads cannot access this so it does not send multiple pings
* Fixed bug with deviceStatusChangedEvent 09/07/16
* Added Universal windows platform dll's to allow compatibility with Windows IoT Core, Windows Store and XBOX
* First official release to coincide with RS DesignSpark Youtube video demo of Brainboxes API's running on Windows IoT Core and Raspberry Pi 3 28/10/15
* Bug with ED-527 event handling reported by Frank Guchelaar and fixed 20/09/15
* Nuget release Ethernet to Serial devices with many stability and performance fixes 21/04/15
* Initial Nuget release to include Ethernet to serial 07/09/15
* Improved handling of IsAvailable for when a route to the device cannot be found, improved handling of IsConnected to determine if the connection is still open 28/08/15
* Corrected ISerialProtocol to implement IClonable so that assigning a protocol to a multiport product was handled correctly 02/03/15 - beta
* Added IsAvailable property to Device and Connection and a call back to be notified on change of device status
* Added factory method to Connection (Connection.Create)
* Change constructor for TCPConnection to include ConnectionTimeout parameter 22/12/14
* Added counter functionality to API for IOLines and change handlers
* Changed handling of network and serial streams, by wrapping them into a BBStream to make them work in a consistent way, stream is now flushed before every sendcommand
* Fixed issue with Timeout not being correctly set
* Fixed FactoryRest and Restart command
