This is the kind of reason why made people try test02 when test03 was 
ready and test03 when test04 was ready. But apparently that was not 
gradual enough. Here is test05, which is actually in between test03 and 
test04 in terms of features : I only reverted the enabling of the mmx 
module. It's most likely the thing that goes wrong, but I wouldn't quite 
know why it would be that way, especially if game_of_life.pd does still 
work sometimes. In my logic, if the mmx module is borked, then 
game_of_life.pd has to completely stop working...

But I still believe that it makes more sense to remove mmx support 
at this point than ppm support and/or fft support.


I need to know whether this release feels more like test03 or like test05 
in terms of crashes. Then I could release a test06 accordingly. (well, at 
this point, it looks more like next one will be a final release of 0.9.7, 
because I need to do that this week for other reasons).
