Radium 1.9.31 is a big release with many new features and bug fixes.

1.9.31 is the first release with Pd embedded.
Pd is a " Real-time graphical dataflow programming environment for
audio, video, and graphical processing." (http://puredata.info/)

Pd embedded in Radium has got approximately the same features as Max
for Ableton Live. (https://www.ableton.com/en/live/max-for-live/)

be compared textually
