Any idea when the new daisy-chain code will be available ? And will there be some new enclosure and kit for the slave displays?

I’d like to have a clock which would also grab weather info from sources like this: and scroll that terse data such as:
KSLC 062337Z 0700/0806 34010KT P6SM FEW100 SCT150
FM070400 15006KT P6SM SKC

You can see the longest string here is 9 characters, but that might not be the longest possible (not sure what is; have to think about that).
There are some interesting dot matrix ways to do this but there are things I like about these 16-seg displays. Might have to do one each way...
