Release Date

If you need any help setting up yabridge or if you just want to keep up to date with new releases and important Wine related announcements, then feel free to join the Discord.


  • Change the low RLIMIT_RTTIME warning to mention setting up realtime priviliges instead of changing PipeWire's config now that PipeWire MRs !1118 and !1120 have been merged and PipeWire can use regular realtime scheduling without imposing any resource limits out of the box.
  • Prevented yabridge's ad-hoc socket acceptors from inheriting realtime scheduling when spawned from audio threads. In practice this should not have caused any noticeable effects as these threads are sleeping all the time except for under very specific circumstances.


  • Fixed the REAPER-specific editor_force_dnd option not working correctly when using the Track -> Insert virtual instrument on new track... option. When using this option REAPER will first embed the plugin in an offscreen plugin window and it will only then create the actual FX window and embed the other window in it.
  • Fixed the VST3 version of IK Multimedia's T-RackS 5 producing silent output when doing offline rendering. This could happen when exporting or bouncing audio in Bitwig Studio 4.1+, Ardour and in REAPER. These plugins apparently need to process audio from the main GUI thread when in offline rendering mode. If you try to process audio from thread, then they will produce silence and hang afterwards (which a fix in yabridge 3.7.0 previously addressed).
  • Fixed crashes when opening plugin editors under Crostini on ChromeOS due to non-standard X11 implementations.
  • Worked around a bug in the RandARP VST2 plugin where the plugin would report that its editor window is 0 by 0 pixels.
  • Fixed building under Wine 7.2 and up because of changes to the definitions of Wine's numerical types.


  • yabridgectl status no longer mentions anything about installation methods if you're using the regular, copy-based installation method. This is a follow-up to the changes made in yabridgectl 3.8.0.


The archive ending in -ubuntu-18.04.tar.gz is a compatibility release meant for older distros and is thus slightly larger in size. If you're using Ubuntu 18.04, Linux Mint 19, Debian 10, AV Linux MXE 2021, or any other distro that's older than Ubuntu 20.04, then you should use this archive instead of the regular release. If you need a build of yabridge for use with 32-bit plugin hosts, then you can find those on the automated builds page.


To update from an older installation, simply overwrite your current yabridge and yabridgectl files with the ones downloaded below, and then rerun yabridgectl sync to complete the update.
