hi, chris !

thanks a lot for all the infos and kind help ! much appreciated !

> Thanks for the heads-up. I have fixed the forum link.

confirmed. only the "There are some good tips for Windows users in this 
forum thread." link is still invalid, though

that's a totally valid point. if it's declared "complete" i can live 
with all the restrictions and just use the stuff, that's working. fine 
with me !

PD 0.48-1 is great as a working version ! just downloaded and installed 
your latest build. seems to work alright, but the background is rendered 
as black (!), making many example patches unusable unless they have a 
coloured canvas or a png file as background !

i'm not quite sure i understand, but gonna investigate. so this would be 
done on linux ?

thanks again for all your work !
