As usual, apologies for x-posting...

It is my pleasure to announce the latest release of pd-l2ork free 
open-source visual programming language for interactive media, and 
supporting K12 educational module for the 32-bit and 64-bit Linux, as 
well as Raspberry Pi (Arm) platforms. pd-l2ork is the infrastructural 
backbone of Virginia Tech DISIS Linux Laptop Orchestra 
(http://l2ork.music.vt.edu). Highlights include:

*Ported all vanilla GUI objects and events to cairo-based SVG-like 
tkpath canvas providing antialiased drawing capabilities, bezier patch 
cords, and setting stage for a zoomable canvas
*Implemented a new scrollbar system using semi-transparent objects right 
on the canvas
*Implemented filtering of autorepeat keyboard events for key, keyup, 
keyname objects
*Expanded K12 library with numerous improvements and added a couple demo 
*Backported resizable objects and recent files
*Implemented native drag-n-drop
*Improved GUI appearance
*Began porting 3rd party objects to new cairo-based canvas 
(non-accelerated 3rd-party objects can be recognized by having a blue 
selection box and their considerably slower redraw)
*Cleaned-up extended pddp documentation and added comprehensive cyclone 
*Began filtering (disabling) building of redundant externals within the 
cyclone and other 3rd-party libraries
*Proper visual reordering without the potentially cpu-expensive 
canvas_redraw for all accelerated objects (non-accelerated 3rd-party 
objects can be recognized by having a blue selection box and their 
considerably slower redraw)
*Disabled drawing of redundant nlets for objects embedded inside a GOP 
object (for Max users, equivalent to a bpatcher)
*Embedded tkdnd and tkpath libs directly into source for a monolithic 
build; made several improvements to the tkpath lib fork
*Many other minor bugfixes and improvements (see Changelog for more info)
