after spending the whole last three weeks on developing builtin VST-support=
for LMMS, I'm proud to present first results. Look at
There you see, what I mean with integrated. The plugin is displayed directl=
in the LMMS-workspace!! This doesn't work always under KDE for some reason,=
but works fine with all other window-managers, so it's likely to be a bug i=
KWin... Maybe I'll send a bug-report to the KDE-guys one day...
You can checkout the latest CVS-sources for using this feature. Please note=
that you have to run configure with
=2E/configure ... --with-vst
Otherwise VST-support won't be enabled. This is for security reasons, so th=
packagers do not package binaries with VST-support (license problems!), if=
they have the needed Steinberg-headers and don't realize, that they'd have =
run configure with --without-vst...
This new VST-framework works with a client-server-architecture. The plugin =
loaded by a server (which is a WINE-app) which is launched by client=20
(LMMS-Vestige-plugin). The client communicates with server via stdin/stdout=
and shared memory.
THIS VERSION IS ONLY EXPERIMENTAL AND IS QUITE BUGGY!! DO NOT EXPECT=20
VST-SUPPORT YOU REALLY CAN WORK WITH! It's just a first version for showing=
in which direction LMMS is going to go!

I have only one thing to say... WOW! This looks great. In a week or so I'll
finally be able to put linux back onto my computer (relief :-) ), and then I'll
start fooling around with LMMS. I would've written some documentation by now, but
that's a bit hard without actually using it.
Who knows, I might join in devving too.
