great to see Pd 0.52 approaching!
Here's a list of my open PRs:
I made sure that they all apply cleanly.
Some are trivial:
Others need more discussion:
Here are some simple feature PRs:
* [goprect( method to dynamically change the GOP rect:
* allow to receive large UDP packets:
* [clone]: allow resizing and always have at least one inlet:
* "-open-with-args" command line option:
These are bit larger, but still reasonable (at least I like to think so :-)
* new [list store] methods: [set(, [insert(, [delete(, [send(:
* [poly]: allow resizing, dynamically set note stealing, sustain pedal
* new [list] methods: [list foreach], [list join] and [list unjoin]:
Finally, this one would make me very happy:
I would definitely see this as a temporary solution. After Gem and
ophelia (who else?) have adapted their macOS input handling code, the
option could be removed entirely.
