Yeah, there have been some troubles. In the case of iemmatrix: most of
the aliases were missing completely, so even with hexloader loaded,
Pd-extended wouldn't find the correct files. I created a patch that adds
all missing aliases for iemmatrix and IOhannes committed it two days ago
. I guess you would need to try a current autobuild to be able to
create [mtx_+] directly. The rc3 version was released before the patch
Regarding zexy, I am not aware of any troubles in Pd-extended. Please
post bugs, if you find any. I guess we're not far away from the libdirs
behaving similar to the original multi-object library format. I
personally care most about zexy and iemmatrix, I haven't checked if
other libraries also require aliases.
You said you removed hexloader from automatically being loaded, because
there have been some troubles in the past. The reason could be found in
the list archives. I haven't thoroughly checked everything about
hexloader, but it seemed to me that most problems have been solved. If
not, can you elaborate a bit the issue?
Personally, I think it would help _a lot_ to make Pd patches portable
between flavours, if hexloader would be loaded automaticall on start-up
of Pd-extended. Please let me know, if you think it is not worth raising
this discussion again.
