hi carmen

one advantage came up to my mind, that is only related to pd-0.38: you
didn't need the shell anymore. but when using a startup-script to start
pd-0.39 on win, both, the shell and the main-window appear and you
cannot get rid of the 'unused' shell until you quit pd. (or do i miss
something to start from a script without shell?)

i just want to add, that - besides that - i really like 0.39, since some
gui-problems with patches, that do dynamic object-creation and
dynamically visualize/hide windows, disappeared.

good night

CPU load incurred in the old pd-gui is due to drawing text/graphics
since ive made some standalone scripts that do pretty crazy things like
display 25-50 fps color-spectrograms and oscilloscopes in pure
unaccelerated Tk that dont chew nearly as much as PD does for a few
lines of graphics or errorlog..

displaying \ in filenames with \\ instead, which was never a bug in
matjuconsole, but not annoying enough to track down..
