Is alsa midi support scheduled for future releases of pd?

Is there any patch to current stable version?

Currently I'm using snd-virmidi module the following way:

> modprobe snd-virmidi
> cat /proc/asound/devices
  43: [1- 3]: raw midi
  42: [1- 2]: raw midi
  41: [1- 1]: raw midi
  40: [1- 0]: raw midi
> ln -s /dev/snd/midiC1D0 /dev/midi10
> pd -midiindev 11

Then I aconnect muse or vkeybd to alsa client VirMIDI 1-0.
It works fine, but is this the right way to do it? For me it was
a matter of trial and error.


> pd -listdev
  input devices:
  1. OSS device #1
  output devices:
  1. OSS device #1
  API number 2
  no midi input devices found
  no midi output devices found

never finds midi devices. Why?

Thank you,
