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
files
*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
documentation
*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)

A screenshot of the K12 module is attached. Alternatively, it can be
