> DPF-Plugins v1.5 released
On 2022-01-16 by falkTX

Hello everyone, a new release of DPF-Plugins is here.
DPF-Plugins is a collection of DPF-based plugins, including Kars, MVerb and Nekobi.
This is mostly a bugfix release, keeping up with the cool kids for regular releases.


  • Initial experimental VST3 support
  • Add bottom-right resize handle in glBars and ProM, needed in plugin formats that can't do host-side resizing
    (ProM resize handle is invisible but still works, known issue)
  • Some plugin GUIs can use Cairo instead of OpenGL, if OpenGL is not available at build time
  • Standalones no longer require JACK, instead detecting at runtime if it is available
  • Standalones will now use RtAudio for native audio device access in case JACK is not available
  • ProM now ships with (optional) vendored libprojectM in case it is not available as system library
  • ProM now sets up and uses OpenGL3 context instead of OpenGL2 forward compatibility mode, fixing usage on macOS and Windows
  • Fix modal about dialogs
  • Fix more High-DPI related issues
  • Fix OpenGL context swap on GUI deletion, needed on hosts using OpenGL


The source code plus Linux, macOS and Windows binaries can be downloaded at https://github.com/DISTRHO/DPF-Plugins/releases/tag/v1.5.
The plugins are released as LADSPA, DSSI, LV2, VST2, VST3 and JACK standalone.
