looks like 48 is now marked as ‘stable’, perhaps a discussion on if/when organelle should jump.
(note: its not packaged on pacman yet. so early discussion)
(EDIT : confirmed, though not updated on puredata.info yet, its been announced on pd-annouce as an official release)
release notes are here:
organelle is on 46
from 47, I think clone is a real bonus, and perhaps deken?
as mentioned by @oweno looks interesting,
but ive just downloaded 0.48 and can find no changet to the api for this…
I basically did a diff on m_pd.h from 47, and nothing was there, also I did find two references to sys_startgui sys_stopgui in the ‘private api’ , but they didn’t appear to the right thing to use, or useful.
(and a comment in one place saying, if its stopped, there is an issue restarting it)
another interesting change is, and I think perhaps related…
this could be useful for Organelle potentially for running multiple patches? (though I have other ideas for that ) …
I’m wondering if this is more useful in a libpd context, which I think might be an interesting development for Organelle?
other good things in 47 48?
also I’m new to Pd, how stable are the zero releases? (e.g. 0.47.0) or do most wait for a 0.0.1 release, for initial bug fixes?
so this implies, its designed for libpd, which makes sense… and explains why its a pd api function.
(don’t understand why its not in m_pd.h, so id say is ‘private’, but perhaps that’s common )
I guess, id have to write a quick external to work out, if the PD executable is going to go bang, if you call it…
but as mentioned before, I’m quite interested in the idea of using libpd from the mother exec… if we did that, then this new feature, would still enable the UI to be brought up… say from a menu on in mother exec.
(hmm, I think we need another name for the mother exec, its too easy to confuse with mother.pd… perhaps if we move to libpd, it can be motherhost ;))
