dssi-vst 0.5 released!

The 0.5 release of dssi-vst is now available.

dssi-vst is a DSSI plugin wrapper for Win32 VST effects and instruments
with GUI support, allowing them to be loaded into any DSSI host.

dssi-vst is available from the download page at


The 0.5 release now comes with Javier Serrano Polo's VST-compatibility 
header, as previously distributed in LMMS.  (Actually, this header was 
already compatible with dssi-vst -- no modifications to dssi-vst were 
necessary -- it's just that the header is now included in the package.)  
This permits it to be compiled without the official VST SDK and 
distributed under pure GPL.  No guarantees are made as to the 
reliability of the results; your feedback is welcome, but please bear 
in mind that I will not do any development work on the compatibility 
header myself for legal reasons.

The 0.5 release is also (finally) compatible with version 2.4r2 of the 
official SDK, should you wish to use it.
