Finally, I released another Pd-extended, but this one is quite  
different.  Its based on the cross-platform, cross-package build  
system.  Soon, I shall be releasing a Windows and Linux build based on  
this as well.


  Lots of changes, got the first complete(-ish) build with the new  
extended build system. I left as much of the old functionality in place  
as possible, definitely were it was being used. But there are some  
changes that break backwards compatibility, thought they should be  
noticed by few, and be easy to fix going forward.

Some highlights:

* centralized patch system (packages/patches with targets patch_pd and  

* libdir format: basically a libdir is a directory that has both the  
objects and the help files together in one folder. It can be added  
using -lib or the StartUp preferences, or you can access them via  
geiger namespaces, i.e. [mylibrary/myobject].

* special characters allow in setup function/file names for objects.  
This makes objects like [||~] possible without having to be in a  
library. Now they can be either .pd files or individual .pd_darwin  
files (thanks IOhannes for the patch).
