I remember seeing a series of patches (code diffs I mean) that made the
necessary changes to Pd vanilla to Pd extended - does anyone know if these
still exist? (I couldn't find them when I looked at the Pd extended SVN
repository a few weeks ago).
Some of them should be in Pd vanilla anyway, and if I took that part on it
would make the rest a lot easier.

With the updates/cleanups to the tcl/tk sources a few years ago (great work Hans et al!), it should be alot easier than the previous extended releases. But still, *easy* or not, it involves time.

If welcome, I could help sharing my thoughts and two cents about that, but I realize those are not actual bug fixes regarding the code, so it's not a priority on its to do list and issues for being updated to another release.

Given the context, I'm not assuming any big to do list for some new features agenda. But besidesthe bug fixes, how hard is it for someone to just update to the latest vanilla core?
