different distros can use different mirrors/sources to get packages.
in particular raspbian manages its own repo, and can often lag a little behind, often they do this to allow other dependent packages to catch up.
for raspbian stretch its currently at 0.47.3
puredata/stable,now 0.47.1-3 all [installed]
realtime computer music and graphics system
(and yes, I did an update before hand to check for an update)
there is nothing to stop you adding another repo source, the risk you run, going to early, is you'll later find that some other package you want, that depends on puredata , will have a dependency back to the older version (47) , and so you'll end up with both installed (which can cause other sets of issues) ... also you can get downstream dependency issues, i.e. pure data 48 might depend on newer version of x/y/z, so again those end up getting pulled in (not usually an issue but can be)
... this is the reason distros like to have their own mirrors, so they can keep the main packages in some kind of consistent state, doesn't always work - but works better than always just using the 'latest and greatest'
well vsts are pointless on the PI... and are already possible with 47, they have just refined the API in 48... and I dont know if the current VST PD bridges have even updated to use this yet. (perhaps they have, perhaps not) .. but moot point o a PI
switching gui-less, also seems kind of pointless to me on a PI, one of the main reasons to run PD guileless on a PI, is so that you dont have to start X windows.... (which is a large resource hog).
so if your start PD in gui mode, you are already running X, so just turning off the PD gui is not saving you much
... you'd be much better off, killing X, killing PD and restarting PD in non gui mode.
(its theoretically, possible you are able to kill X , and keep PD running, but I very much doubt this will )
yes, deken is in 47
fyi, Im going to chat to with owen (c&g) about if we should move organelle to 47 or 48... Ive suggested 48, but only so we dont later have to do another build... but maybe we will go with 47.3 for its stability, and also as I said clone is my desire
