<span style="font-size: 20px">&gt; Carla 2.4.1 has been released</span><br/>
On <i>2021-10-15</i> by<i> falkTX</i>

This is a bugfix for Carla version v2.4 series, bringing some improvements and fixing a few bugs.
<a href="" class="external free" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Carla</a>
is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.<br/>
It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC (and send output back as MIDI too) and full OSC control.<br/>

<li>Better handling of VST3 parameters (hide as needed, number of steps, etc)</li>
<li>Fix compatibility with Python 3.10</li>
<li>Fix getting the proper X11 UIs size for more plugins</li>
<li>Fix plugin bridges not automatically closing if main Carla dies on macOS (similar to how it is done on Linux)</li>
<li>Fix unused parameters preventing real ones from showing up in the edit plugin dialog</li>
<li>Fix CarlaNativePlugin.h and CarlaPluginPtr.hpp header files not installed system-wide</li>
<li>Fix XY-Controller GUI missing on "make install" target</li>
<li>Fix VST2 plugins under macOS and High-DPI (by not reporting scale factor)</li>
<li>Replace -lpthread usage with -pthread, fixing RISC-V builds</li>
<li>Send keyboard and focus events as needed/possible to VST2 and VST3 UIs</li>
<li>Small tweaks to XY-Controller (make lines 1px thick, close UI with Esc key)</li>
<li>Special tweaks for static plugin target build (embeding carla statically in other applications/plugins)</li>
<li>Other minor fixes and tweaks</li>

To download Carla binaries or source code, jump on over to the <a href="" class="external free" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">KXStudio downloads section</a>.<br/>
If you're using the KXStudio repositories, you can simply install "carla".<br/>
Bug reports and feature requests are welcome! Jump on over to the <a href="" class="external free" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Carla's Github project</a> page for those.

<h3>Notes for users</h3>
This was already the case for v2.2 and v2.3 but it is worth reiterating:<br/>
When using JACK2, the canvas - plugin integrations requires at least JACK2 v1.9.13.<br/>
This is because Carla relies on JACK meta-data in order to store information about each plugin/client,
and meta-data was only added to JACK2 in version 1.9.13.<br/>
Alternatively, you can use JACK1 instead of JACK2, which has meta-data support since a long time.<br/>
Note that the <a href="/Repositories:Extras">"extras" KXStudio repository</a> (which provides an updated JACK2) supports both Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04.<br/>
The UbuntuStudio backports PPA also provides updated JACK2 packages.
There are no official Linux binary builds for v2.4.1 at this point.<br/>
Carla v2.4.1 is provided in the KXStudio repositories and in many official Linux distribution repositories too anyway.
