So, the release notes say:
„Added 64 bit VST3 builds for Windows and Mac“

That increases probably the filesize ;)
I don’t speak English, but this very well :D

Anybody still using 32 bit or can we drop those? Would save a lot of size.

Nope. Use instead the vacated place for some new Plugins ;)

danke :-)
Is there any advantage of using them as VST3?

This is a different diskussion, but no: I have just did a recording with a jazz band: about 10 Gb, so I don't care about some Kb of 32 bit plugins - some of these I am still using with reaper.

:P I'd misread that initially, and was thinking Meg. 100k? That might be just a readme file that got added...

Sidechaining didn't work with VST2 in Cubase. Other than that, I think VST2 is still better supported than VST3.
