### Distributions of Pure Data
There are currently three main distributions of Pure Data:

guide is for Pd-l2ork.

Here are some of the current tasks:
* writing small audio/visual Pd games or demos to include in the next release
* skill level: ability to write Pd programs
* status: I wrote a little sprite-based game that will ship with the next
version of Pd-l2ork. In it, the character walks around in an actual
Pd diagram shoots at the objects to progress, and to make realtime
changes to the music.
What I'd like is to include a new, smallish game with each release
that has a link in the Pd console. It can be a little demo or game,
just something fun that shows off what can be done using Pure Data.
* porting Pd-l2ork's graphical user interface from Tcl/Tk to Qt.
