Wwise SDK 2023.1.4
Release Notes 2018.1.9

The following sections list and describe the changes to Wwise between version 2018.1.8 and version 2018.1.9. For earlier versions, please refer to Previous Release Notes. This release is a bug fix release, therefore projects, banks, and the API are compatible without change for all 2018.1.x versions.

Note: Plug-in Developers This version of Wwise supports plug-ins built with Wwise 2018.1. For plug-ins built with older versions of Wwise, developers must recompile and repackage them with a compatible version.
