Lilv 0.14.0

Lilv 0.14.0 is out. Lilv is a library to make the use of LV2 plugins as simple as possible for applications.

This release includes many improvements, most notably built-in support for saving/restoring plugin state (including powerful non-destructive saving of plugin state which contains files), as well as many bug and portability fixes.


  • Add lilv_plugin_get_extension_data
  • Use path variables in pkgconfig files
  • Install man page to DATADIR (e.g. PREFIX/share/man, not PREFIX/man)
  • Make Lilv::uri_to_path static inline (fix linking errors)
  • Use correct URI for dcterms:replaces (for hiding old plugins): “”
  • Fix compilation on BSD
  • Only load dynmanifest libraries once per bundle, not once per plugin
  • Fix lilv_world_find_nodes to work with wildcard subjects
  • Add lilv_plugin_get_related to get resources related to plugins that are not directly rdfs:seeAlso linked (e.g. presets)
  • Add lilv_world_load_resource for related resources (e.g. presets)
  • Print presets in lv2info
  • Remove locale smashing kludges and use new serd functions for converting nodes to/from numbers.
  • Add LilvState API for handling plugin state. This makes it simple to save and restore plugin state both in memory and on disk, as well as save presets in a host-sharable way since the disk format is identical to the LV2 presets format.
  • Update old references to lv2_list (now lv2ls)
  • Support compilation as C++ under MSVC++.
  • Remove use of wordexp.
  • Add lilv_plugin_get_port_by_designation() and lilv_port_get_index() as an improved generic alternative to lilv_plugin_get_latency_port_index().
  • Add lilv_plugin_get_project() and get author information from project if it is not given directly on the plugin.

Flattr this!
