File size: 19693 byte(s)
* Assigned more useful default dimensions (and default position) for various
  windows and dialogs (if auto-restore of user's own custom window
  dimensions is disabled).
* Bumped version (1.0.0.svn51).

1 Version SVN HEAD (?)
3 * allow building with G/GDK/GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
4 * fixed building without linuxsampler on Mac
5 * fixed some compiler and cppcheck warnings
6 * synthesis paremeter page tabs are now scrollable (fixes an issue with
7 GTK 3: default theme uses huge tabs which breaks the overall layout on
8 average window sizes)
9 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
10 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
11 * NKSP Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP syntax
12 highlighting backend.
13 * Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on
14 the NKSP refrence documentation website).
15 * Script Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP parser
16 backend for displaying parser errors and warnings directly within
17 the source code.
18 * User settings are now automatically saved and restored.
19 * Automatically save & restore window size and position.
20 * Script Editor: Show precise parser error/warning messages as tooltip
21 when the mouse points over the respective location in the script's
22 source code.
23 * Script Editor: Show a question dialog to the user when the editor is
24 to be closed and the script changes have not been applied yet.
25 * Script Editor: Added status bar at the bottom of the script editor
26 window showing the amount (if any) of errors and warnings.
27 * Script Editor: Added menu bar and two initial entries: "Apply" (Ctrl-S)
28 and "Close" (Ctrl-Q).
29 * Script Editor: if editor is used in live-mode, inform the sampler that
30 it needs to automatically reload the script after the script has been
31 altered and applied with the script editor.
32 * Added setting to main menu "View" -> "Auto Restore Window Dimension"
33 (disabled by default since it causes issues on some machines).
34 * Fixed crash after changing a dimension type with the dimension manager
35 dialog.
36 * Script Editor: Fixed editor which did not appear on some systems due
37 to missing icons (using now lists of alternative icon names).
38 * Script Editor: Added "Font Size ..." selection to editor's menu.
39 * Script Editor: Fixed crash on Ctrl + A, followed by Del.
40 * fixed crash when opening dimension manager dialolg multiple times
41 (and i.e. adding or removing dimensions each time)
42 * Show sample group name and CRC-32 checksum on "Sample" tab.
43 * Show instrument index number on instruments list view.
44 * Added multi-row selection support on samples tree view.
45 * Added multi-row selection support on instruments list view.
46 * windows, 32-bit: fixed crashes by making sure the stack in sub
47 threads is 16-byte aligned
48 * windows: look for the data directory in the parent of the dll
49 directory, if the dll directory is called "32" or "64"
50 * Implemented resizing multiple dimension region zones at once, which is
51 controlled by the infamous checkbox trio "all regions",
52 "all dimension splits" and "both channels".
53 * Implemented deleting dimension region zones of all regions at once, which
54 is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
55 * Implemented splitting up dimension region zones of all regions at once,
56 which is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
57 * Show graphical symbol on region that uses loop(s).
58 * Show graphical symbol on region that misses sample reference(s).
59 * Fixed crash on saving file if a sample was requested to be replaced twice
60 by the user.
61 * Implemented fast navigation through regions by keyboard accelerator
62 Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right (on Mac: Cmd+Left and Cmd+Right).
63 * Implemented fast navigation through dimension region zones of currently
64 selected region by keyboard accelerator Alt+Left, Alt+Right, Alt+Up,
65 Alt+Down, as well as simply using the arrow keys alone if the dimension
66 region chooser got focus (i.e. when it was selected by mouse previously).
67 * Color tweaking on selected regions and selected dimension zones.
68 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show main selected case in opaque blue color
69 (like before), but all other selected dimension zones with a blue hatched
70 pattern instead.
71 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show the label of the currently selected
72 dimension in bold font.
73 * Implemented selecting multiple dimension region zones by keyboard with
74 keyboard accelerators Alt+Shift+Left and Alt+Shift+Right.
75 * Implemented copy & paste of DimensionRegion (with Alt+c and Alt+v).
76 * Dimension Region Chooser: Mark all zones auto selected by check box trio
77 with gray hatched pattern.
78 * Region Chooser: Mark all regions which are auto selected by check box
79 "All Regions" with gray hatched pattern.
80 * Introduced "Macro Editor" for adjusting clipboard content before applying
81 it (accessible via Alt+x).
82 * Introduced configurable list of macros which are auto assigned to keyboard
83 accelerators (F1 ... F12) and saved along with the app's config file.
84 * Macro Editor: Fixed deleting rows when delete button was hit without Ctrl
85 being pressed.
86 * Macro Editor: Show combo box with textual options for enum types.
87 * "Macro" main menu section: show macro comments as tooltip.
88 * Macro Editor: Display demangled C++ type names.
89 * Macros Setup: Implemented cloning of macros.
90 * Live mode performance optimization: fixed the editor to be non-responsive
91 for a very long time, which happened if changing instrument parameters of a
92 very large amount of dimension regions was requested.
93 * Macro Editor: Handle boolean parameter types appropriately, i.e. show
94 'Yes' or 'NO' instead of '1' or '0'.
95 * GTK3: Bringing back icons and keyboard accelerators / mnemonics for menus
96 and buttons with GTK3; Cudos to those GTK heros who thought it might be
97 a clever idea to simply remove such features for all users, all devices
98 and all apps by default with GTK3!
99 * Autoconf: check for presence of at least gtk+-2.0-dev.
100 * Instruments list view: show amount of real-time instruments scripts used
101 by instrument.
102 * Script Editor: Fixed Gtk crash while entering a variety of ill formed code
103 like unterminated string literals.
104 * Assigned more useful default dimensions (and default position) for various
105 windows and dialogs (if auto-restore of user's own custom window
106 dimensions is disabled).
108 Version 1.0.0 (2015-07-17)
110 * minor fix in configure for cross-compiling
111 * minor Makefile fix for parallel make
112 * use Cairo instead of deprecated gdk drawing primitives
113 * avoid deprecated gtk methods when using newer gtk versions
114 * raised minimum supported gtkmm version to 2.8
115 * ported to gtkmm 3, keeping compatibility with gtkmm 2
116 * gtkmm 3 fix: rewrote the custom widgets (regionchooser and
117 dimregionchooser) so they only draw pixels in the on_draw
118 method. This should make them work again in newer gtkmm 3
119 environments.
120 * added support for new glibmm threads API
121 * gtkmm 3 fix: the WrapLabel custom widget is not needed in gtkmm 3
122 * fixed building on Debian testing (#186)
123 * modernized configure script
124 * added graphical curves for velocity response and crossfade
125 * added "Duplicate Instrument" function
126 * fixed import of 32 bit float wav files
127 * code refactoring: created a PropEdit class for property editor
128 windows, moved Table class from mainwindow to paramedit
129 * minor gui tweaks: made note entry fields a bit wider, set a
130 minimum width for scales
131 * bug fix: avoid stale information in the instrument properties
132 window when a new file is loaded or the instrument is removed
133 * cross fade graph: draw curves of all layers in the same graph
134 * made sure the instruments menu is updated when instruments are
135 added, removed or renamed
136 * fixed name entry field in instrument properties window
137 * use character encoding Windows-1252 for all strings in gig files
138 * show dimension zone start and end as numeric text labels
139 * copying sample informations automatically may now be disabled from the
140 new "Edit" main menu
141 * import 'fine tune' when importing samples with libsndfile
142 * Mac OS X: initialize gtk and gettext with files from base
143 directory of the libgigedit library
144 * Mac OS X: fixed "recently used" in file dialogs
145 * Mac OS X: avoid crash when starting gigedit as an application
146 bundle
147 * Mac OS X: try to launch the GUI on the process's "main" thread
148 * show build date and libgig version number in about dialog
149 * added dialog for editing the CtrlTrigger and Legato midi rules
150 * if there is no region yet, show a red hint text to the user that he may
151 right click on the region chooser area to add a region
152 * added tooltips to main menu entries (was buggy before)
153 * added tooltips to instruments tree view and samples tree view
154 * added various tooltips and adjusted some labels on the region settings
155 pane
156 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: only a small set of possible MIDI controllers
157 was selectable for EG1 controller, EG2 controller and attenuation
158 controller (and no CC number was shown in the combo box). Obviously the
159 additional MIDI controllers can only be used with LinuxSampler, they would
160 not work with Gigasampler/GigaStudio. A warning message will be shown
161 though whenever somebody tries to use one of those extension controllers.
162 * Combine instruments: a new feature that allows to merge a selection of
163 instruments to one new single instrument. It uses the 'layer' dimension
164 to stack up the instruments. This feature is available from the main menu
165 under 'Tools' -> 'Combine Instruments'.
166 * Dimension zone amount: Support for increasing and decreasing the amount of
167 dimension zones by right clicking on the respective zone and either
168 selecting "delete" or "split" in the popup menu.
169 * Combine instruments: generalized this tool to allow combining instruments
170 based on any dimension, not only the 'layer' dimension.
171 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: show dialog window with at least 460x300px on
172 initial usage (was far too small by default).
173 * File Property Dialog: allow viewing and altering the Giga file format
174 version (by combo box).
175 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: added support for viewing and editing
176 dimensions of all regions simultaniously.
177 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing and editing
178 real-time instrument scripts. Instrument scripts are a LinuxSampler
179 extension of the original Giga format and will not load with the
180 GigaStudio software.
181 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing script slots for
182 instruments. Script slots define which scripts shall be executed for an
183 instrument by the sampler and in which order.
184 * Samples tree view on main window: display the amount of references for
185 each sample and show the respective sample in gray color in case it is not
186 referenced at all.
187 * Samples tree view: implemented sample reference browser, which shows a
188 tree with all instruments and their respective regions which reference the
189 selected sample once ore more.
190 * Restructured main menu: duplicated all popup menus to the main menu,
191 automatically switch to the right tree view tab when either selecting the
192 "Sample", "Instrument" or "Script" main menu entry.
193 * Dimension Region Selector: implemented multi zone selection by press and
194 hold CTRL key.
195 * Dimension Region Selector: show bottom and upper limit values for all
196 dimension zones, not just the currently selected ones.
197 * Dimension Region Selector: Fixed drawing issues when zone sizes were
198 altered by mouse drag and labels being displayed at wrong positions.
199 * Region Chooser: Double click opens dimension manager dialog.
200 * Dimension Manager: Clicking on dimension type cell of an existing dimension
201 opens a popup to alter the dimension type.
202 * Script Tree: Double click opens script editor.
203 * Fixed potential crash if exception was thrown while opening a gig file.
204 * Added support for visual progress bar while saving a gig file.
205 * Automatically switch the sampler's (audible) instrument whenever another
206 instrument was selected in gigedit (this default behavior can be switched
207 off in the settings menu of gigedit).
208 * Dimension Region Editor: Show coarse sample format info (audio channels,
209 bit depth, sample rate) and unique sample ID (since the gig format allows
210 different samples to have the same name).
211 * Dimension Region Editor: Added button "Select Sample" on the sample tab,
212 which allows to conveniently select the dimension region's sample on the
213 left hand side's samples tree view.
214 * Sample Referenve View Dialog: Clicking on a reference in the list closes
215 the dialog and jumps directly to the respective instrument, region and
216 dimension region the respective sample reference is located at.
217 * Fixed instruments, samples and scripts to appear twice after save.
218 * Implemented reordering of instruments by drag & drop.
219 * Implemented replacing of existing samples.
220 * Added "X" button next to sample reference field, which allows to remove
221 the current sample reference, allowing to create a "silent case" where
222 no sample shall be played.
223 * Fixed file name disappearing from title bar on certain actions.
224 * Added new menu item "View"->"Refresh All".
225 * Added new menu item "Samples"->"Remove Unused Samples".
226 * Region Chooser: when moving a region around automatically move the
227 keyboard position dependent pitch accordingly (can be turned off with
228 "Settings"->"Move root key with region moved").
229 * Added option to main menu for performing "Save" operation with a
230 tempoary file (may perform faster than directly modifying existing
231 .gig file).
233 Version 0.2.0 (2009-07-31)
235 * fixed file properties dialog - properties now can be edited
236 * gig files where regions are not internally ordered are now handled
237 * the resize mouse pointer is not shown anymore for regions that
238 can't be resized
239 * the region and dimregion chooser widgets are now resizable
240 * bugfix: sometimes you could not delete more than one dimension
241 * filter headers are now also greyed out when the filter is inactive
242 * autoconf fix: LS plugin dirs with digits in their prefix
243 (e.g. "/usr/lib64/foo") are now resolved in relative dirs as well
244 (show a warning when resolving the relative path failed)
245 * keys on the virtual keyboard now highlight on note on events on
246 sampler side
247 * virtual keyboard can now trigger notes for the sampler (only in
248 live-mode of course)
249 * implemented alternative behavior for the virtual MIDI keyboard
250 (selectable by combobox below the keyboard)
251 * show absolute velocity value of note-on & note-off events below
252 the virtual MIDI keyboard
253 * renamed misleading names regarding the gig format's "keyswitching"
254 feature (the dimension is now displayed as "keyswitching" instead of
255 "keyboard" in the dimregchooser widget and the two parameters for
256 defining the actual keyswitching area on the keyboard in the instruments
257 properties dialog are now called "Keyswitching range low/high" instead of
258 "Dimension key range low/high")
259 * added "replace all samples" function to samples popup menu
260 (patch by Anders Dahnielson, a bit extended, fixes #73)
261 * bugfix: dimension manager window didn't update when another region
262 was selected (#78)
263 * in "Save As..." dialog set inital filename to "copy_of_<filename>" and
264 show a warning message that saving to the same .gig file will corrupt
