0.0.1 - Initial Release
0.0.2 - Fixed an issue with using the timer in a repeating flow which caused it to either send an additional msg after being stopped, or, in some cases, not allowing a new msg to pass through after the node had been previously stopped.
0.0.3 - README.md update
0.0.4 - Updated icon for less confusion with other nodes
0.0.5 - As per request, I have included a second output. You can set the payload for the second output to a number, string or boolean, however, if the timer is stopped with an incoming msg, the second output will send the payload of "stopped".
0.0.6 - Forgot to update the "info" panel instructions inside of node-red to include the new features.
0.0.7 - Clarified the instructions with respect to the what happens to the existing message when a new message arrives.
