"Old" VST3 SDK

Post by pongasoft »

I just saw you released 3.7.1. It seems that the download link only lets you download 3.7.1.

Where can I access the download for 3.7.0?

Thanks

Old SDKs are not available for download.
We recommand to always use the last one.
In github you could access the history (versioning) of vstinterface and helper classes

This is the only project I know that does this... Do you realize that people cannot switch like this overnight especially when they are in the middle of a project? This is so developer unfriendly!

You switch without any warning, while making backward incompatible changes (like changing cmake function names and variables), and you don't offer any access to previous version.

I am not sure how you would react if CMake, for example, that you currently use (and you use version 3.4.3) would tell you: no way, you must use the latest version 3.18 and we don't offer any download of past versions...

A text file which describes the necessary changes to port a project created with the previous SDK would be really helpful

It's generally a best practice to put your dependencies into the same source control as your "actual" project.
And by "best practice" I mean "something everyone learns after they get burned once," kind-of like "making backups" or, indeed, "using source control."
