Sounds good! I'm glad this didn't end up being as big of a release as last time. OTOH that means we were able to get a lot right a year ago. We're still cleaning up details from the Tk 8.5 transition on macOS but, luckily, this work should be pretty solid from here on out.

I have a few bigger features I wanted to get to, but less time this summer. Most of what I'm thinking of would benefit from being collaborated and tested over a longer period anyway and I think the fall & spring seems to be good for this kind of work within the cycle.

The few things left I can see that would be relatively painless are:

* https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/466 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/466>
* https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/461 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/461> (a little peev of mine)

Also, perhaps either of the css updates to the manual could be considered as the modern responsive font sizing is a big bonus IMO:

* https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/232 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/232>
* https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/233 <https://github.com/pure-data/pure-data/pull/233>
