Bug with utf8 vst3 parameter value (and a fix)

i’ve got some AudioParameterFloats which use a stringFromValue that appends juce::String(juce::CharPointer_UTF8("¢")) . this works fine with an au, but with a vst3 the utf8 characters are garbled.

au in ableton
vst3 in ableton
vst3 in bitwig

it looks like this was previously reported. i can verify the fix in that post works for me. juce folks, any chance of getting that fix merged?
