Is the BW Vulgate Psalms the LXX or Hebrew version?




I am not positive, as one would have to look up the front matter in the print edition, but one customer review of the print edition used in BibleWorks has the following statement:
The Psalter of the New Vulgate is a thorough, modern revision of the traditional Gallican, making it accord much more closely to the Hebrew Massorah.
