just to make that clear: i did not try to be pedantic.
but my command of the english language is surely worse than hans's, and 
i always want to take the opportunity to learn something.
your definition of "deprecated" was contradictory for me (though it 
might not have been for others)

i would be a bit more specific and use "pd-0.33" instead of just "0.33".
it might as well be "pd-extended-0.34" (if the pd-extended version 
differs with pd-vanilla regarding the interoperability of the said 
thing) or "linux-2.2.18".
there are manifold reasons why an external could be abandoned/deprecated 
or simply dysfuntional.

and (if i haven't said that before), i would suggest using a more 
positive wording like
"works with: (pd<0.35)"
