I see a new version of PD is available, which has got some serious goodies:
Save state for abstractions. you can now use the same abstraction with variables inside and they will be independant of each other. Before if you save one abstraction, you save the setting in all abstractions.
On top of that, IOhannes intelligent patching. It works.
Oh yeah, not to mention UNLIMITED undo…
"5.1. release notes
------------------ 0.49-0 ------------------------------
“Undo” and “Redo” menu items now may be repeated to undo/redo more than one successive edit. This feature was introduced by Jonathan Wilkes and ported to Pd vanilla by Johannes Zmoelnig.
Various editing shotuct, also from Johannes.
Search path handling made easier and more consistent between user preferences, “declare” objects and command line flags. See help file for the “declare” object.
A “savestate” object allows abstractions to be designed so that they can save state information as part of the calling patch.
“Pointer” object has a “delete” method
“Text”, “array”, and “scalar” objects have the same methods (bang and “send”) for outputting pointers to themselves
“Declare” -path & -lib flags now search user search paths
Opening patches from menu, command line, or messages to “pd” first check of the file is already open and if so only bring the existing patch to front.
4 million point default limit on resizing soundfile read to array changed to 2^31-1 (about 2 billion) samples
Changes to audio I/O handling to time out if device freezes (as when you unplug a USB device in MACOSX).
Backslashes may now be typed into object/message boxes. They escape following “$”, “,” and “;” characters.
- Are there any chance that Organelle would be updated to run a newer version of pd sometime down the road?
