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?

bump… it would be nice to have this fixed. It also fixes the same issue with custom parameter values.
