View Full Version : xVST 2.0a released!

1st May 2009, 21:36
One year after last official release, I'm glad to announce a new version of xVideoServiceThief.

This new version 2.0a comes with a lot of new features, improvements and updated services, but the most important change is the new xVST core based on plugins (java script plugins), so everyone can now write their own plugins.

The new xVST is developed using the last Qt framework (4.5.x), which is needed for the new xVST plugins core.

Also, an official version for MacOS X (Intel) is available! Yes! Finally! The PPC version is being developed.

The xVST linux version now includes a simple install script, which will help the users install the new xVST. Please read the "readme.txt" before install the xVST linux.


Enjoy it!
