libpd has reached a 0.1 release, enabling developers to use Pd as a

the near future, embedding Pd patches inside tools like
Processing/Java, OpenFrameworks/C++, and Python should be just as
easy. The library is based on Pd vanilla, so this is not a fork of Pd;

Developers will find the library, code snippets (for Android; iOS is
coming), and even some handy abstractions:

libpd available is thanks to the work of Peter Brinkmann, with
testing, further development, documentation, and other contributions
from the RjDj team (who are now adopting it in their future
development work), Hans-Christoph Steiner, Chris McCormick (who has
also added the ability to make HTML5 web interfaces), and Peter Kirn,
along with members of the NYC Patching Circle at NYC Resistor.
