Summary

We are pleased to introduce VDK 4.3.0 which is a bug-fix and feature release.

In this release we have mainly stabilized the use of phonetics in the Studio.
It is now also possible to specify in the TTS manager when to use or not SSML in the written text.
At last, the logs shown in the Studio now embed also the ones from the Vsdk-daemon and some syntax highlighting has been added to help read them better.

On a side note, C++ samples are now available for direct download with Conan, the C++ package manager. For further information on how to do so, you can read the tutorial How-to: Use a VDK sample.
