Hi all,

Purr Data 2.13.0 has just been released:


* ported Vanilla's [inlet~ fwd] argument (reimplemented to avoid stack
allocation and various other problems) (Thanks to Guillem!)

* scrollbar fix for optimal zoom (Thanks Ico!)

*avoid null selectors in core where trivial to do so, gracefully
handle and annotate them when/if they happen. Also added an
experimental [debuginfo] object so we can output a message with a null
selector (and other methods in the future good for testing)

* ported Vanilla patch for [pow~] handling negative samples in input

* ported [savestate] from Vanilla

* ported array, scalar "bang" methods

* add base argument and inlet for [log]

* add zcheckgetfn to m_pd.h for checking method signatures match
before doing an end run around typedmess. This is used for the
reimplementation of [inlet~ fwd]. (Thanks to Guillem for this)

* port and re-implement Vanilla's "#ffffff" syntax for setting iemgui
colors. Additionally, support the "#fff" short syntax. We're not
currently saving the symbol colors in the Pd file format, yet. A
warning is printed about this since it means we're still storing the
lossy color format. A future version will save the symbol colors, but
we want to ship a few releases supporting the new syntax before making
this breaking file format change.

* added "test-object" abstraction for doing more detailed testing of objects

* fixed bug where the box width was wrong when editing certain objects
(thanks to Guillem)

* port "seed" method for [noise~]

* throttle canvas_motion (part 1 of 2 of getting rid of exponential
explosion when moving selections)

* port [text] "sort" method

* when clicking an error link, bring the relevant object into the
viewport and animate it to make it easy for the user to find

* add "-alsaadd" flag with pulse device for pulse support (Thanks to Sam!)

* fixed some alsa bugs

* ported from Vanilla: preserve phase in [clone] after [all( message,
fixed a crasher

* expand and improve the type hints for errors with edge case atoms
(null selectors, null symbols, "floatlike" symbol payloads, etc.)

* improvements to french translations (Thanks Joseph!)

* update pd-lua compatibility with Lua 5.4 (Thanks Albert!)

* port multi-step undo from Vanilla (Thanks Guillem!)

* initial touch support in GUI (Thanks Albert and spidercatnat!)

* zoom viewport fix (Thanks Albert!)
