> Howdy, please allow me to share a rather personal and detailed report to
> this dear list about this release: The Cyclone Library (a set of Pure Data
> objects cloned from Max/MSP) is finally upgraded to version 0.3! The main
> goal of Cyclone 0.3 was to update it to Max 7! Max 8 is out now and there
> are minor updates that could be included in cyclone, which may be ported in
> a possible future 0.4 release. Cyclone 0.3 also provide numerous fixes,
> several new objects and a newly written documentation!
> In the last release (cyclone 0.3 release candidate 1), we noted how we
> finished updating our last object to Max 7! The catch was that we still
> needed to update  [comment], which won't be updated to Max 6+. Now it's
> been updated but not yet fully compliant to Max 5 - nonetheless it's
> "acceptable" and further work can be taken care in future 0.3.x releases.
> Anyhow, there were also other updates and fixes and the thing is, with what
> we have now, I just feel comfortable and happy to state: "*Mission
> Completed: Cyclone 0.3 stable release is out!*".
> This took 3 years. In fact, this release happens in the exact day of the
> 3rd anniversary of our repository. I was pretty clueless on how to code
> externals when we started and I still struggle a lot - even though I was
> able to learn a thing or two in the meantime :) -, this is to say that if
> it weren't for my colleagues Derek and Matt, nothing of this would be
> possible! I feel I have to praise and thank them (which I can't do enough)
> as I don't want to outshine them (since I'm the usual spokesman of the
> project). We made a great team! My limitations actually came in handy as I
> could just deal with what I could, which was the most tedious and manual
> labor that this project needed, like revising every object, looking for
> bugs, cleaning things up, dealing with the less complicated stuff while I
> learned how to code and etc. Then after a lot of attention, I could deliver
> a good briefing so they could help me fix the more hardcore stuff without
> all that hassle.
> After this long period, it's also noticeable to say we lost steam. I can
> only speak for myself and I'm now taking care of my own library (thanks to
> all I've learned dealing with cyclone, I must say). I don't know much and
> can't promise that cyclone will keep receiving the same attention from now
> on, but don't expect it to be abandoned ;) The project is obviously open
> for collaboration and any help is welcome. We actually had a very good and
> recent contribution from Diego Barrios Romero, who made it possible for
> anyone to compile cyclone now as a single library! Apparently he needed
> this to load cyclone with libpd more conveniently. Further cyclone releases
> may also bring the option of a single compiled binary. Instructions on how
> to compile cyclone as a single library and more about the project in genera
> can be found here:
> https://github.com/porres/pd-cyclone/blob/cyclone0.3/README.md Also check
> the changelog for a full list of changes:
> https://github.com/porres/pd-cyclone/blob/cyclone0.3/documentation/extra_files/CHANGELOG.txt
> Cyclone is now available for the main architectures via Pd (Help => Find
> Externals) - it might take a while until it shows up in the system. You can
> also get it from here:
> https://github.com/porres/pd-cyclone/releases/tag/cyclone0.3
> For last, I can't finish this message without thanking the Pd Community in
> general (specially Dan and IOhannes for being big players and great
> leaders) but mostly Miller Puckette, of course, without whom there's be no
> Max or Pd (and therefore no cyclone). We obviously need to also thank the
> original author of Cyclone, Krzysztof Czaja, who created this important
> library for Pd! Hans Christof Steiner needs to be honored for maintaining
> this library and keeping it in Pd Extended for a long time, and later Fred
> Jan Kraan was also very important to start fixing and updating this library
> after so long in the cyclone 0.2 releases.
