Hi Keith,

if you change the name of your library to
and if you adjust the name in your controller respectively
all should work as expected.
There is a naming convention for library files, i.e.
camel case is not allowed, but it seems this is not
mentioned in the user guide.
Sorry for the hassle. Will fix that.
