VMT Engine 4 is out

Today VMT Engine 4 has been released to the public. This is probably one of the biggest change to VMT Engine since… Forever. The biggest change is licensing, because this update makes VMT Engine’s source code open. Not only that, but the source code has been completly rewritten – that’s the reason why this version is called „4.0” instead of „3.1”. It doesn’t come with many new features, but more of improvements. Here’s full list:

 Added:
– Installer is now available to download and install the program
