Apologies for x-posting...

It's been a busy summer--pd-l2ork 
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?page_id=56>has been making big strides 
towards becoming a robust full-fledged digital signal processing tool. 
The latest version includes revolutionary preset_hub and preset_node 
system that supports a wide range of data types as well as abstractions. 
It is essentially Pd's counterpart toMax's pattrstorage 
We've also squashed dozens of bugs and clean-ups making pd-l2ork better 
than ever.

Perhaps the most exciting improvement involves Pd-L2Ork'sK12 module 
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?p=1964>geared towards elementary, 
middle, and high school students. The new version has over 40 
objects/abstractions, allowing students to seamlessly interact with both 
Wiimotes andSARC iteration of Arduino Uno devices (a.k.a. Sarcduino 
firmware) <http://www.musicsensorsemotion.com/2010/03/08/sarcduino/>. 
And this very version together with 15 L2Ork stations is being used this 
week by more than 30 middle-school students as part of the inauguralICAT 
K12 Maker Workshop <http://www.icat.vt.edu/> taking place in Virginia 
Tech Institute for Creativity, Arts & Technology's Studio 1. So, head on 
over to the L2Ork's software page 
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?page_id=56>and check out what the 
latest version of pd-l2ork is all about ;-)
