a quick question hans, how are you doing? :)
i want to thank you for hid, i've been waiting for this!
my wacom tablet is working fine! pressure is there from 0 to 512.

but when i pressed the middle button of my pen, nothing happen (not really important now), just want to let you know.

question : will it be possible to support the p5 glove. i think there's a lot of people (well, 2 or 3 actually...) having the p5 glove but no external to use it in pd.

have a good day hans!
see ya,

  Subject: [PD-announce] new [hid] release + simple mapping objects

  This version of [hid] fixes the crasher bug when you try to open a non-existant device.

  I am currently working on making a suite of objects for mapping controller data. I am making a number of objects like [mouse], [joystick], etc. which all output range (0 to 1 for axes). Then the mapping objects all take data of this range and output 0 to 1 so that the data can be easily mapped and scaled to parameters. Included are log, square root, and cube root; and exponent, square, and cube; as well as a basic smoothing object.

  The overarching idea for these objects is to make clearly defined, high-level objects for beginners and for rapid prototyping when using external controllers in Pd patches. At least point I am looking for ideas, comments, etc. about other possible mapping functions
