Hi list,

Purr Data 2.8.0 has been released and is now available:



* Constrained dragging. Version 2.8.0 adds the ability to drag iemguis,
subpatches, graphs, grid, and Scope~, with a constraint either
vertically or horizontally. There are new cursors that show up when
the user moves the pointer along the bottom right-hand corners of
these objects. Clicking when the "east-west" cursor is displayed will
resize the widget in the horizontal direction. Clicking when the
"north-south" cursor is displayed will resize in the vertical direction.

Iemgui labels and the [cnv] object also allow constrained dragging.
Just move the pointer in the corners of the little "drag rectangle" that
appears when the relevant iemgui is selected. (The [cnv] object
and the red gop rectangle have two such "drag rectangles.")

* Fixed bug with scalar events. In some cases opening a subpatch
could unbind the event for the scalar.

* Improved help patch for [line] object. The new help file does a
better job explaining the function of the 3rd inlet and specifies
what happens when the grain size doesn't divide evenly into the
total ramp duration.

* Added a "footgun" GUI preset. A user stated that Max/MSP lets
the user selectively hide cords. Well, in Purr Data we let the user
hide _all_ cords and xlets with the "footgun" preset. The name is
self-documenting but may come in handy for patches with
so much spaghetti that the text in the object boxes is unreadable.

Please report all bugs on the issue tracker:
