It seems, that now (00:00 CEST) still the same version is in the PPA

Update: Claude just informed me  in #dataflow that the build is still

Anyway, I can confirm that the i386 build is working. And it works with
both Pd flavours, puredata and pd-extended. Since pdextended only
searches in its own extra folder, one needs to specify
'-path /usr/lib/pd/extra' in order to successfully load GridFlow. But
this is an issue with all externals coming in their own deb pacakge.

Without having it really tested, I think now that the gridflow package
depends on pd instead of puredata, it still pulls in puredata, even if
pd-extended is installed. This is because gridflow depends on pd-zexy
and pd-zexy depends on puredata (instead of pd; unlike gem which depends
on pd). However, that is something that cannot be fixed in the gridflow
