Some of you may have seen this already, but I've been working on a JUCE wrapper around Pure Data. It allows you to use Pure Data inside a DAW, while also providing a smoother GUI experience. There's also a standalone version, if you just want to use the new GUI.
It's based on Camomile (by Pierre Guillot) and includes the ELSE and cyclone libraries (by Alexandre Porres). It uses pd-vanilla 0.52 and should be compatible with most patches pd.
It's currently still in beta testing but should be usable. Let me know if you experience any problems!
Also let me know if anyone is interested in helping out, there's still some work to be done.
