Hi all,

I've been following this thread but haven't responded yet because
it's a bit overwhelming...  My own priorities for 0.36 are probably:

1. undo
2. better interface for cutting patch cords (although this might not
be so important once "undo" works!)
3. throttling number box updates to save CPU time
4. coloring inlets,outlets, and lines to follow their function (not
just audio signals, but also gem and perhaps even having different colors
for floats and bangs..)

At the moment I'm still trying to get the OSX code integrated correctly;
once I get that working robustly I'll declare 0.35 "stable"...
