Breaking Change for WipperSnapper on Feather Huzzah ESP32 an

If you're suddenly having WipperSnapper issues using a Feather Huzzah ESP32 or Feather Huzzah ESP8266, it is probably not your fault!

Perhaps you're seeing this error (or similar) when logged into Adafruit IO:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
`Firmware out of date! Quickly update this board (adafruit-huzzah-32) at: https://adafruit.github.io/WipperSnapper_Firmware_Uploader`


Like the message says, these boards will need to update to WipperSnapper Firmware version beta.28 (or higher) via our firmware tool:
https://adafruit.github.io/WipperSnapper_Firmware_Uploader

This is a breaking change we needed to make in order to support automation of the firmware tool going forward. Unfortunately, we don't yet have a good way to communicate to the board that it is using deprecated firmware, so the behavior you see may be a reboot loop.

In the future (once out of beta) we'll have better usability around these inevitable breaking changes.
