to absent friends.
today, the iem is announcing the shut down of the
https://apt.puredata.info/ and https://autobuild.puredata.info/ services.
if you are missing these services, now is the time to propose a toast.
if you are going to miss these services, think again.
https://apt.puredata.info/ provided Debian packages of Pd-extended, up
to Debian/wheezy (aka Debian 7) resp Ubuntu/trusty (aka Ubuntu 14.04).
As we all know, the last release of Pd-extended was based on Pd-0.43 and
happened in january 2013. it has been dead since then.
Debian/wheezy was released in 2013 and has been superseded by
Debian/jessie (aka Debian 8) in 2015. The Long Term Support (LTS) for
Debian/jessie [sic!] ended in june 2020. There was no LTS for Debian/wheezy.
Ubuntu/trusty was released in 2014 and received Long Term Support until
https://autobuild.puredata.info/ provided nightly snapshots of
Pd-extended, so people could test all the new development features of
Pd-extended without having to compile themselves.
Again, Pd-extended has been dead for 7 years.
The last nightly development snapshot was uploaded in 2016.
