Hi Thomas.

Thanks for your kind words. I indeed wanted the first release to be "simple".

I'd appreciate feedback from interested parties on where to go next. I
can imagine a variety of directions:
- auto-connect and better integration as a Pd "launcher"
- more complex "expert" modes for those already familiar with Project
Builder (not my favourite direction, but a possibility)
- receiving feedback from Pd

Definitely coming:
- a web page
- better toggle support
- screenshots for the tutorial (sorry they aren't there yet)
- more examples (Any requests?)

As you might've guessed, this is an extremely simple shim between cocoa
and a socket. My inclination is to keep it as simple as possible while
maximising the possibilities...


I believe Thomas Grill said this around Tue, 10 Dec 2002:
