> Carla 2.5.5 released
On 2023-06-04 by falkTX

Hello again everyone, a new release for the Carla Plugin Host is here, v2.5.5 which brings a couple of fixes to the v2.5 series and internal tweaks for its future integration in OBS.
Worth noting that future releases of Cardinal and Ildaeil will depend on this version (or later) for their audio plugin discovery support.


  • Allow IPC during plugin discovery (controlled by external tools)
  • Expose a few extra APIs in carla-utils library
  • Install extra carla-utils related headers during `make install`
  • Fix invalid/empty LV2 paths for compatibility with lilv
  • Fix LV2 plugin state for plugin bridges
  • Fix showing engine device settings on systems without JACK
  • Fix usage with LMMS on Windows
  • Remove use of `REAL_BUILD` macro, no longer needed
  • Tweaks for integration in OBS
  • Other minor fixes and cleanup
