hi hans,

first thx for the good work.
i m currently preparing for a workshop next week and noticed
2 things when i tried out your new installer:

- the submenues in help or prefereances are only accessable
when i open first the 1. manual in help

- the gui seems to redraw very slowlu and only in "realtime"
when the mouse is moved over the canvas - is this meant as
a cpu safer feature ? can i switch this behaviour ?

> Other notable addition:
> 	- GUI objects work again (unauthorized, [envgen], etc.)
> 	- [hid] and company are part of the build
> 	- [comport] serial port object
> 	- pmdp
> 	- help files were renamed to conform to the standard (NAME-help.pd)
> Notable omissions:
> 	- flext-based externals (the Pd.app build hasn't been updated for the 
> new flext building)
> 	- pdp... its still quite hard to compile, but a solution seems

> As always, there is lots left to do...
