Apologies for x-posting...
It's been a busy summer--pd-l2ork
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?page_id=56>has been making big strides
towards becoming a robust full-fledged digital signal processing tool.
The latest version includes revolutionary preset_hub and preset_node
system that supports a wide range of data types as well as abstractions.
It is essentially Pd's counterpart toMax's pattrstorage
We've also squashed dozens of bugs and clean-ups making pd-l2ork better
Perhaps the most exciting improvement involves Pd-L2Ork'sK12 module
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?p=1964>geared towards elementary,
middle, and high school students. The new version has over 40
objects/abstractions, allowing students to seamlessly interact with both
Wiimotes andSARC iteration of Arduino Uno devices (a.k.a. Sarcduino
And this very version together with 15 L2Ork stations is being used this
week by more than 30 middle-school students as part of the inauguralICAT
K12 Maker Workshop <http://www.icat.vt.edu/> taking place in Virginia
Tech Institute for Creativity, Arts & Technology's Studio 1. So, head on
over to the L2Ork's software page
<http://l2ork.music.vt.edu/main/?page_id=56>and check out what the
latest version of pd-l2ork is all about ;-)

http://wiki.linuxaudio.org is seeing an increasing amount of SPAM.
For a while it has been sufficient to [fail2]ban IP addresses that
incorrectly guess CAPTCHA - ie. prevent brute-force attacks and manually
revert the remaining pollution. -- Yet in the last months either CAPTCHA
breaking has improved or there are real persons doing the spamming.
I did not do statistics, but from watching the changelog I gather that
the vast majority of contributions to the wiki comes from registered
users. So the idea is to lock the wiki down and only allow registered
users (registration requires an email address) to edit it.
