UUID Generation

There is discussion out there in the wild http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=291624 about UUID generation. Apparently (7 years ago) they had to be registered with Steinberg. Does that still hold true?

It seems a bit unmanageable to have to register a new app every time you think of a new idea in order to get a new UUID - most of which don’t get finished.

Are we able to use a UUID generator with a bit of rearrangement https://www.guidgenerator.com/online-guid-generator.aspx

The linked thread talks about VST2 and its content is still valid.

For VST3 you can use the named UUID generator.
