Default Cockos WDL repository drops iPlug (since community forks are better)

Just a note -- given how stale the iPlug implementation in our repository had become, we've chosen to remove it. There is a commit in our repository (e6d601d1dc8) which does this remove, and anybody merging our WDL into their iPlug-WDL repositories (or indeed their private code bases) should probably do something like:
Code:
 git merge e6d601d1dc8^
 git merge -sours e6d601d1dc8  
 git merge upstream-wdl/master
The -sours for the merge of that one commit should ensure that the merge is only in name, and not actually applied.

I've also updated the web page to recommend WDL-OL and Tale's WDL. Are there other WDL/iPlug forks we should recommend?

I hope this doesn't cause anybody too much inconvenience, but hopefully it will help reduce the number of people who start out with our old iPlug and end up having to rework things to move to the newer versions, etc.

Cheers,

Justin

Thanks for the heads-up, and for the Git howto.

Thanks man! You same me lot's of time. I used to run:

Code:
git filter-branch --tree-filter 'rm -rf WDL/IPlug' head
To be honest I didn't like the content of IPlug directory and from my perspective it was never a good fit in WDL.

Having said that I would like to acknowledge all the hard work you have put to IPlug and as a matter of fact it has turned to be very useful to some people.

With the deprecation and removal of IPlug from the wdl distribution, can anyone comment on the differences between Tale's and Oli's forks? I'm familiar with Oli's, mostly...but I'm sad to say I haven't really followed what's been done with Tale's version...

Are there other versions worth tracking/cherry picking?

Well, I think Oli has been cherry-picking my version (and I his), so I guess you haven't missed much. Anyway, you could easily add mine as a remote (git remote add talewdl <url>), and track it yourself (git fetch talewdl).

Anyway, Oli's version supports more plug-in formats, mine still supports only VST2 and AU. I think mine is more compatible with the original IPlug (although not 100% anymore either), and perhaps slightly more up-to-date with Cockos' WDL.

I have been tracking a bunch of them, but I haven't seen any changes for ages (except in Oli's repo of course!).
