[PD] C.H.I.P. & Pd Vanilla 0.47

In most Linux distributions, versions are set in the package manager and changing versions of the distribution (aka Ubuntu 10.4 to 10.10, etc) changes the versions of all packages on the system. This is a *good* thing since many programs rely on specific versions of libraries and changing certain things but not others can lead to instability, crashes, etc. Which version of pd that is in the package manager is then defined by which overall version of the distribution you are using.

Debian sticks with a “stable” and “unstable” metaphor where stable is usually older but much more tested and hence “stable. If you want newer and more bleeding edge stuff, you’ll need to use the unstable distribution instead which probably has a newer version of pd. Barring that, you might be able to add a separate ppa source for newer builds and/or download the prebuilt binary from Miller and/or download the source and build it yourself (it’s easy).
