[PD] getting back to business

Welcome back to PD land!

There are several new libraries that you might want to look into--ELSE, Ofelia, and Context (I'm doing a little self promotion with the last one). But IMO the more important thing is getting up to date with changes in Vanilla.

[text] and [array] are new Vanilla objects which replace [textfile] and [table] respectively. They might not feel natural to someone coming from Extended, but once you get used to them they will improve your patching immensely.

[clone] is also new--it helps you create n number of abstractions in one location. [savestate] lets you save the state of an abstraction.

There may be others--this is just what comes to my mind first.

Subject: [PD] getting back to business

Hello everyone,
I used to do some stuff with pd-extended about eight years ago. I did a quite interesting and rather large project back then but I haven't really touched the language since [although I kept receiving these mails and sometimes I even read them]. I'm thinking of getting back into it, so I have two questions for you:

1. Are there any new libraries (from around 2010 onwards) I should be aware of? Be it because they're useful or cool or your favorite for any reason.
2. What do you think would be good katas for Pd? It doesn't matter if they're very basic.
