Not surprisingly though, eight years later I still can't recommend using VSTGUI over rolling your own. Using it for anything serious requires so many modifications and eventually some of their design decisions will limit what you can accomplish without completely replacing large chunks of the library.

I can recommend that if you do use VSTGUI, definitely use the latest version. With all its limitations and things I would do differently, 4x actually begins to work quite reliably with minimal effort.

4.x also has the 'missing png.h' file problem.

Tell me this aciddose - can I create a GUI like this (using vstgui?):

I can't tell you that based upon a screenshot.

VSTGUI does not support layers unless you make a lot of modifications.

Anything you can do with simple bitmap alpha-blit should be possible if you invest enough effort.

4x doesn't have any issue if configured correctly. I wouldn't be surprised if it isn't configured correctly by default though.
