Version: 0.3.2
Date: 2019-04-27
    - Radius values now use tiles rather than chunks!
    - Use actual backlog of chunks to be generated to retard scan
    - Corrected issue with height/width limited surfaces

Version: 0.3.1
Date: 2019-03-24
    - Updated for 0.17
    - Scan no longer stalls when radius is changed while new chunks are being charted

Version: 0.3.0
Date: 2019-01-27
    - Corrected behavior when begin and end angles are constrained
  Minor Features:
    - Changed minimum speed in mod options to zero to disable until given a signal
    - Added signal information to mouse-over of item and recipe

Version: 0.2.9
Date: 2018-06-17
    - Invalid entity was referenced when hidden entity destroyed

Version: 0.2.8
Date: 2018-05-13
    - Only call force.chart() once per chunk per scan
    - Corrected for floating point error near zero degrees
    - Inner radius specified by signal was not limited
  Minor Features:
    - Added option to disable additional power usage
    - Pause sweep while game generates new map data
    - Step size increased to full chunk on outside diameter per step
    - Polished prototype entries

Version: 0.2.5
Date: 2018-05-02
    - Quick fix for mining, seems to fix bot mining as well

Version: 0.2.4
Date: 2018-03-18
    - Some mods requires all items to have a 32 pixel icon

Version: 0.2.3
Date: 2018-03-18
  Major Features:
    - Signal input support added, can control:
       [R]adius, Scanning radius in chunks
       [D]irection, 1 for Clockwise, -1 for Counterclockwise
       [S]peed, 1 (slow) - 10 (fast)
       [B]egin angle, 0-360, sweep constraint
       [E]nd angle, 0-360, sweep constraint
       [N]ear range, near limit scanning radius
       [F]ar range, outer limit scanning radius (equivalent to [R])
    - Can enable/disable radar with condition
    - Power usage scales with speed and radius
  Minor Features:
    - Able to configure default scanning speed
    - Switched from Bresenham's circle algorithm to trig based calculation
