Hi all,

Pd 0.45-0test1 is now up on http://crca.ucsd.edu/~msp/software.htm
or via git from sourceforge:
  git clone git://pure-data.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/pure-data/pure-data
  git checkout 0.45-0test1

Some new features:

binary netsend/netreceive (so you should no longer need an extern for OSC)

pd~ (multiprocessing) works on windows and is less likely to deadlock although
not yet perfect

multi-purpose "array" and "text" objects.  "Array" is a more general
replacement for the "table", "tabread" and "tabwrite" obejcts.  "text" is
sort of like Max's "coll" but simpler and hopefully more powerful.

"text"s are also avaioable as fields in data structures.

"tempo" messages for delay, metro, timer, and "test sequence".  In particular
you can specify or measure time in samples, but you can also use this for
changing the speed of an ensemble of delay loops while keeping them in sync.

Objects/messages/comments have settable box widths.  

Also various improvements in audio and midi handling:

The Pd window now tells you whether PD has an audio device open or not

Fixed hangups exiting when using jack

Got ASIO working again on PC (it was apparently broken; I don't know for how
