Hi Dan -

I'm hoping to get 0.49 out over the weekend, certainly by Thursday AM when
I start teaching with it - selfish I suppose, but I have a whole library
using eh savestate feature, and I'm really tired of students opening the
same patch 3 times and getting confused, and the deep undo feature is way
way overdue.

Are any of the portaudio/portmidi changes urgent, or can they wait for a
0.49-1 or even a 0.50 release (former case, in 2 or 3 weeks as a bug-fixer;
latter case, January or February) ?

These have been forwarded upstream but I'm not sure if they are in any of the newer stable releases. My plan is pull out of these that we still need into separate patch files and either write a script for updating both libs and/or simple instructions on updating and applying any patches. This way we don't have to worry about losing any hard-won fixes while still being able to upgrade with new Pd releases. This approach is similar to that I've taken with applying the key fixes to TK 8.5.19 for the mac app build.
