Here is a new release of GridFlow, a multi-dimensional dataflow processing
library for PureData, Ruby and jMax, designed for interactive arts.


If you have any questions and/or want to talk, there is the #dataflow
chatroom on IRC.FreeNode.Net, where Pd/jMax/MAX-like software is on-topic.

If you have any trouble installing GridFlow (or have any questions),
please send me an email about it, or see me on IRC.

 * file suffix detector is now extensible
 * added: Ruby interface for libUSB (base/usb.c)

 * "open x11" now allows any DISPLAY spec
 * now includes the pictures used in the examples
     (not a separate download anymore)

   [messageprepend], [messageappend], [@transpose]
 * Pd main window:
	adding GridFlow menu;
