Hi Hans,

it means that Pd can be compiled -DPD_FLOATSIZE=64, so it will use 
64-bit doubles instead of 32-bit floats everywhere, and all built-in 
objects should still work as expected.

This has advantages (better precision/stability for certain filters, 
large precise table indicies, etc.) and possible disadvantages (needs 
more memory, some code paths might be a bit slower).

Currently, we only ship the good old single precision builds, but people 
can compile double precision builds from source for themselves to 
experiment with.
