Status of Frontier Tranzport support

Hi Mike,

Can you confirm that forte support displaying of scene names on the LCD of the Frontier Design Tranzport in the latest version (as seen in the forte 3 manual)?
I'm looking into maybe getting one, but it will only be useful for me if it correctly displays scene names.
