I hope they will be compatible, but that's up to the pure:dyne people  
too.  There are four Pd people working in the Debian pkg-multimedia  
team: IOhannes, Alexandre Quessy, Roman, and me.  That seems to be the  
best place for collaborating on Debian packages, and that's where we  
are submitting our packages.  So I hope that pure:dyne people will  
also join there.

That will remain the same, no changes.  Same with Windows.
