Adafruit-circuitpython-neopixel

6.0.0

This release reworks NeoPixel to use PixelBuf for the internal pixel buffer. On Blinka and CircuitPython < 5 it now requires the `pypixelbuf` (2.0.0+) library to run. It implements the same API as `_pixelbuf` in CircuitPython 5.x. NeoPixels manipulation should be faster when using the native implementation.
  
  So, if you are still using CircuitPython < 5, then either 1) upgrade to CircuitPython 5.x, 2)use NeoPixel < 6, or 3) install pypixelbuf.
  
  If you are Blinka, please make sure you have `adafruit-circuitpython-pypixelbuf` >= 2.0.0 installed as well.
  
  To use in CircuitPython, simply install the [Adafruit CircuitPython bundle](https://circuitpython.org/libraries).
  
  To use in CPython, `pip3 install adafruit-circuitpython-neopixel`.

5.1.0

We have upgraded Pylint checks to use the latest version of Pylint and implemented usage of Black Python formatting. This does not change the functionality of the code - it is designed to bring it up to current standards and make it more readable.
  
  * Remove pinned Pylint version number from build.yml file
  * Synced `.pylintrc` file to match Adafruit standard
  * Ran upgraded Pylint and applied any changes or new disables necessary
  * Ran Black formatter and allowed application of changes across entire repo
  
  For more information on using Pylint and Black on your code, check out [this guide on working with Pylint and Black](https://learn.adafruit.com/improve-your-code-with-pylint)

5.0.0

This release reverts the use of PixelBuf. It will be reintroduced once CircuitPython 5.0.0 is stable. This released is versioned as 5.0.0 because it removes an external dependency (adafruit-circuitpython-pypixelbuf) and we'll do a major release again when PixelBuf is reintroduced.
