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.

  • The yabridge builds on the GitHub releases page now have the unity build option disabled. This may work around the same Wine bug #53912 mentioned in the last release, as the bug has not yet been fixed for Wine 7.22. Since this is a low level bug within Wine, there's no guarantee that everything will work correctly until the bug gets fixed. If you still experience crashes or freezes with yabridge, then do consider downgrading back to Wine Staging 7.20.
  • Yabridge's build system now errors out when enabling unity builds while compiling with Wine 7.21 and 7.22.
  • Changed the behavior when setting window positions for yabridge's editor. This avoids a painfully slow redraw in the Audio Nebula Aurora FM plugin when dragging the editor window around. The change may also help with other slow to redraw GUI, and especially with window managers that send excessive events on window movement like in Cinnamon and XFCE.

Packaging notes

  • The --unity=on build option should be removed for the time being as this together with the VST3 SDK triggers the above mentioned Wine bug. Make sure to run yabridge-host.exe (just that, with no wine in front of it) at least once with Wine Staging 7.21 or 7.22 after building to make sure the build works correctly. It should print a usage message if it does.


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.
