> DPF-Plugins v1.2 released
On 2019-03-02 by falkTX

Hello everyone, a new release of DPF-Plugins is here.
This is mostly a bugfix release, with a few little new things.
This is what changed compared to the last release:

  • Fix glBars and ProM plugins not being built and installed
  • Kars: Added release and volume parameters
  • Kars: Remove its useless UI
  • Nekobi: Add enum values for waveform parameter
  • Remove modguis, they are maintained in a separate repo

DPF changes

DPF (the small framework behind these plugins) saw some important changes.
They are not all relevant to DPF-Plugins directly, but worth mentioning:

  • Fix samplerate property in lv2 UIs
  • Fix (implement) parent window for about dialogs for MacOS and Windows
  • Add get/set scaling to Window
  • Add option to automatically scale plugin UIs
  • Allow plugin UIs to be user-resizable, test with info and meters example
  • Implement basic effGetParameterProperties in VST2 plugins (boolean, integer and log flags)
  • Implement midi out
  • Implement enumerator style of parameters
  • Implement LV2-trigger-type parameters
  • Implement Shift-click to reset sliders
  • Report supported LV2 options in generated ttl
  • Render VST2 parameter-text integer, boolean and enum parameters
  • Rework calculation of VST2 transport/time info
  • Set _NET_WM_WINDOW_TYPE for our X11 windows

Other things worth noting is that 2 new exciting things are currently under development: Cairo graphics support and AU plugin wrapper.
Eventually these will be part of core DPF, but for now they are being discussed and worked on with other developers.
