FLARM/ADS-B Symbology

Is there a reference for what the adsb cheverons mean? On another thread I saw someone make a suggestion but I can't find anything from CN.

It's all about to get revised anyway.

I test flew an internal release at Perry last week... nearly ready for public consumption.

Great. Preferred the numeric altitudes.
Does the next version have various icons for different types of ADS-B traffic? The black B-52 icon doesn't match most look-out-the window helicopters, single engine, etc.
Especially since B-52s aren't ADS-B equipped.

I like the proposed plane symbol of the beta
Green below
Red same height
Blue above
plus the numerical height difference
 
Would have been nice to include lift and sink behind
100^2 Thousand above and 2 kts lift
50v1.5 500 below 1.5 kts sink

 ;)
