> ------------------ 0.48-0 ------------------------------
> It's possible to save and recall "settings" to files, and/or to erase
> system settings. On Pcs, the settings are now stored in the "user"
> resource area (before, it was per-machine, and users who weren't
> administrators apparently couldn't save their settings.)
> On the first startup, Pd queries the user as to whether to create a
> directory such as ~/Doculemnts/Pd and set path to point there. Many
> updates were also made to the "path" dialog and deken to better
> integrate downloading stuff and path maintanance.
> The expr family (expr, expr~, fexpr~) got an update from Shahrokh
> Yadegari, and the help file was reorganized and updated by Alexandre
> Porres. Many more math functions are supported, and the parser was
> updated so that expressions using "if" skip evaluating the argument that
> isn't used.
> New "fudiparse", "fudiformat" objects.
> New "list store" object for faster and easier concatenation and
> splitting apart of lists.
> New notification outlet in "text define" so the patch can know when the
> text is changed.
> New "text insert" object.
> "delwrite~" now has a "clear" message.
> "declare -path" inside abstractions was changed so that, if the
> declaration isn't an absolute filename, it's relative to the
> abstraction's directory, not to the owning patch's directory. This might
> be considered an incompatible change; but since the situation with paths
> declared inside abstractions has always been so confused, I think nobody
> will have got away without editing patches that relied on it as things
> changed in the past.
> But the biggest changes are under the hood. Pd now can manage more than
> one running instance, so that it is possible to make plug-ins of various
> sorts out of Pd and they can coexist with each other. This will allow
> people to write much better VST plug-ins in Pd. I'm grateful to Carlos
> Eduardo Batista for much help on this.
> The Pd API allows starting and/or shutting down the GUI dynamically
> while Pd is running.
> Another internal change: the pd~ object now communicates with
> sub-processes in binary by default. This increases the numerical
> accuracy of signal passing (it should be exact now) and makes the
> passing back and forth of audio signals much more efficient.
> Thanks to much effort by Dan Wilcox and Iohannes Zmoelnig, the
> compile-and-build system is much improved, especially for Macintosh
> computers. One visible effect is that language support is finally
> working in the compiled versions on msp.ucsd.edu <http://msp.ucsd.edu>.
