a while ago there was a multiple-Gemwin version of Gem around - I  
tried out the binary that was available and it worked fine (I think  
on OSX but possibly Linux?) but I used the 2 pd method instead for my  

I don't know if it is possible for one pd to use textures or buffers  
created in the other, that would make the preview idea work well with  
two pd instances. Soon I want to try 2 camera views of the same 3D  
space, I think that would be much easier in a single instance of pd  
with two windows!

Is the multiple window patch still working? (preferably on Linux, but  
also on OSX?)

Or is there a better way to try this?
