The distribution of plugins consists of two branches:
- Binary releases with closed source.
- Published source code (Source Code Release, SCR).
Binary releases are the mostly actual releases and contain all possible plugins. These are packaged into archive named according to the following format:
The property <format> is the format of plugins, currently available:
- jack - standalone version of plugins that require JACK for execution
- ladspa - plugins in LADSPA format (not all plugins due to format's restriction)
- lv2 - plugins in LV2 format
- lxvst - plugins in LinuxVST (VST v2.4) format
Supporetd architectures (<arch>) are currently only i586 and x86_64. Properties <major>, <minor> and <micro> form the version of release. If the <micro> version is odd, it contains mostly bug-fixes and patches for the plugin modules. The even <micro> version of plugins contains new features and, in most cases, new plugin series. The history of changes may be seen in attached CHANGELOG.txt.
Published source code contains source code available to build and launch plugins that have been donated by the community. It is commited into the code repository and currently not packaged into the official release to avoid confusion between binary and source code package versioning. It's highly recommended to follow the versioning of the SCR (source code release) according to the attached CHANGELOG.txt file and use the 'scr' abbreviation for the packages that are built from the source code. For example, Linux distribution packages could be named:
lsp-plugins-<format>-scr-<major>.<minor>.<micro>-<arch>.tar.gz lsp-plugins-<format>-scr-<major>.<minor>.<micro>-<arch>.rpm lsp-plugins-<format>-scr-<major>.<minor>.<micro>-<arch>.deb
