Doh. I didn't think of checking the "release note". Unfortunately the  
help patch for send has not been correspondingly updated - that's  
what i checked. I've altered the subject so others like me can spot  
this directly.

There are other quite interesting new features. Like [declare], which  
i think is really useful especially for distributing  
"programs"/"instruments". It is mainly the [list length] and the  
symbol building feature ($1-$2.$3) that has gotten attention.

Questions. "Support for large (>2G) soundfiles, in operating systems  
that offer it" for [readfs~], i suspect it's not [soundfiler]? Also i  
wonder what "6 or so patches" that have been adopted?

Thanks for bringing this forward.
