Googling for 'site:lists.puredata.info hexloader' gave me (in
non-chronologic order):

(fixed in Pd-extended-0.42-5-rc2)

[iemlib/any] does still not load, although [import iemlib] [any] does.
Now the problem seems totally unrelated to [hexloader]. 

(fixed in Pd-extended-0.42-5-rc2)


don't know about this one. Still an issue?

fixed. Though help-file for [.] still not available:
sorry, couldn't find help patch for "scalarmult.pd"

This is about the built-in hexloader, I guess. 

Don't know, what this is about exactly. However, I think I can be
confident to state, that [hexloader] is generally working with at least

fixed in Pd-extended-0.42-5-rc2.


There problem here seems not related to hexloader.

This doesn't tell me anything more specific. 

When digging some more into google results, it appears that quite a
portion of the troubles people have is due to hexloader _not_ being
loaded per default.

Hans, please let me know, if I missed the real reason you were talking
about and which should be found in the archives.

I feel that you're not much in love with hexloader, probably because
quite some portion of all the issues mentioned in any pd-list is somehow
related to hexloader. But often it seems, that hexloader is not really
the cause of the problem or the problem has been fixed long time ago.
Of course, if there is still a serious problem with it, I appreciate
your decision not to load it automatically.
