The following news has been added to the web
The development team is currently at
PLoP (Program Languages of Programming Conference) 
2006 in Portland, Oregon, in conjunction with OOPSLA.
We are presenting this catalog  consisting on eleven design patterns
that contains our experience developing the CLAM framework and other
systems. The patterns aim at offering a generative pattern language that
falls within a generic data-flow architecture.
The catalog is divided in four categories:
- General Data-flow Patterns, that address problems about how to
organize high-level aspects
of the data-flow architecture, by having different types of modules
- Flow Implementation Patterns, that address how to physically transfer
tokens from one module to another,
according to the types of flow defined by the general data-flow patterns.
Tokens life-cycle, ownership and memory management are recurrent issues
in those patterns;
- Network Usability Patterns, that address how humans can interact with
Patterns at PLoP are discussed and improved in small writer's workshops,
and we are very pleased to have Ralph Johnson  as our workshop chair!
On a different matter of things, the new (still unreleased) Network
Editor and Prototyper are getting a lot of improvements. To get an idea
see the development screenshots gallery.
