Whoah - tease indeed!
Knowing next to nothing about vvvv, I'm slightly apprehensive, but I'm sure the good folks at Cycling know what they're doing and have our best interests at heart.
Watching this space...
I got into vvvv before having a bumpy intro to max (being free to use also helped there) Vvvv's core is visual but a few updates ago i did see more support for audio as well. I find the 3d more intuitive than jitter to be honest and it took me a while to grow accustomed to matrices and opengl.
I'm definitely curious to see how/if this will unfold.
