33
34 * allow building with G/GDK/GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
35 * fixed building without linuxsampler on Mac
36 * fixed some compiler and cppcheck warnings
37 * synthesis paremeter page tabs are now scrollable (fixes an issue with
38 GTK 3: default theme uses huge tabs which breaks the overall layout on
39 average window sizes)
40 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
41 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
42 * NKSP Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP syntax
43 highlighting backend.
44 * Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on
45 the NKSP refrence documentation website).
46 * Script Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP parser
47 backend for displaying parser errors and warnings directly within
48 the source code.
49 * User settings are now automatically saved and restored.
50 * Automatically save & restore window size and position.
51 * Script Editor: Show precise parser error/warning messages as tooltip
52 when the mouse points over the respective location in the script's
53 source code.
54 * Script Editor: Show a question dialog to the user when the editor is
55 to be closed and the script changes have not been applied yet.
56 * Script Editor: Added status bar at the bottom of the script editor
57 window showing the amount (if any) of errors and warnings.
58 * Script Editor: Added menu bar and two initial entries: "Apply" (Ctrl-S)
59 and "Close" (Ctrl-Q).
60 * Script Editor: if editor is used in live-mode, inform the sampler that
61 it needs to automatically reload the script after the script has been
62 altered and applied with the script editor.
63 * Added setting to main menu "View" -> "Auto Restore Window Dimension"
64 (disabled by default since it causes issues on some machines).
65 * Fixed crash after changing a dimension type with the dimension manager
66 dialog.
67 * Script Editor: Fixed editor which did not appear on some systems due
68 to missing icons (using now lists of alternative icon names).
69 * Script Editor: Added "Font Size ..." selection to editor's menu.
70 * Script Editor: Fixed crash on Ctrl + A, followed by Del.
71 * fixed crash when opening dimension manager dialolg multiple times
72 (and i.e. adding or removing dimensions each time)
73 * Show sample group name and CRC-32 checksum on "Sample" tab.
74 * Show instrument index number on instruments list view.
75 * Added multi-row selection support on samples tree view.
76 * Added multi-row selection support on instruments list view.
77 * windows, 32-bit: fixed crashes by making sure the stack in sub
78 threads is 16-byte aligned
79 * windows: look for the data directory in the parent of the dll
80 directory, if the dll directory is called "32" or "64"
81 * Implemented resizing multiple dimension region zones at once, which is
82 controlled by the infamous checkbox trio "all regions",
83 "all dimension splits" and "both channels".
84 * Implemented deleting dimension region zones of all regions at once, which
85 is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
86 * Implemented splitting up dimension region zones of all regions at once,
87 which is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
88 * Show graphical symbol on region that uses loop(s).
89 * Show graphical symbol on region that misses sample reference(s).
90 * Fixed crash on saving file if a sample was requested to be replaced twice
91 by the user.
92 * Implemented fast navigation through regions by keyboard accelerator
93 Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right (on Mac: Cmd+Left and Cmd+Right).
94 * Implemented fast navigation through dimension region zones of currently
95 selected region by keyboard accelerator Alt+Left, Alt+Right, Alt+Up,
96 Alt+Down, as well as simply using the arrow keys alone if the dimension
97 region chooser got focus (i.e. when it was selected by mouse previously).
98 * Color tweaking on selected regions and selected dimension zones.
99 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show main selected case in opaque blue color
100 (like before), but all other selected dimension zones with a blue hatched
101 pattern instead.
102 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show the label of the currently selected
103 dimension in bold font.

107 * Dimension Region Chooser: Mark all zones auto selected by check box trio
108 with gray hatched pattern.
109 * Region Chooser: Mark all regions which are auto selected by check box
110 "All Regions" with gray hatched pattern.
111 * Introduced "Macro Editor" for adjusting clipboard content before applying
112 it (accessible via Alt+x).
113 * Introduced configurable list of macros which are auto assigned to keyboard
114 accelerators (F1 ... F12) and saved along with the app's config file.
115 * Macro Editor: Fixed deleting rows when delete button was hit without Ctrl
116 being pressed.
117 * Macro Editor: Show combo box with textual options for enum types.
118 * "Macro" main menu section: show macro comments as tooltip.
119 * Macro Editor: Display demangled C++ type names.
120 * Macros Setup: Implemented cloning of macros.
121 * Live mode performance optimization: fixed the editor to be non-responsive
122 for a very long time, which happened if changing instrument parameters of a
123 very large amount of dimension regions was requested.
124 * Macro Editor: Handle boolean parameter types appropriately, i.e. show
125 'Yes' or 'NO' instead of '1' or '0'.
126 * GTK3: Bringing back icons and keyboard accelerators / mnemonics for menus
127 and buttons with GTK3; Cudos to those GTK heros who thought it might be
128 a clever idea to simply remove such features for all users, all devices
129 and all apps by default with GTK3!
130 * Autoconf: check for presence of at least gtk+-2.0-dev.
131 * Instruments list view: show amount of real-time instruments scripts used
132 by instrument.
133 * Script Editor: Fixed Gtk crash while entering a variety of ill formed code
134 like unterminated string literals.
135 * Assigned more useful default dimensions (and default position) for various
136 windows and dialogs (if auto-restore of user's own custom window
137 dimensions is disabled).
138 * Mac fix: Make sure app window appears in front of all other apps.
139 * Script Editor: only if compiled without liblinuxsampler; added support for
140 new NKSP language keyword "synchronized".
141 * Script Editor: strike through code blocks filtered out by the preprocessor.
142 * Combine Tool: Show instruments' index number in the list view.
143 * Combine Tool: Now it allows to select the instruments to be combined
144 already in the main window's instruments list view; then either call the
145 combine instrument dialog from the main menu or use the new keyboard
146 shortcut Ctrl + j.
147 * Combine Tool: Added a vertical list which represents the order of the
148 selected instruments to be combined; dragging them modifies their order.
149 * Combine Tool: After returning from the combine tool dialog, automatically
150 scroll to the newly added (combined) instrument.
151 * Draw icons on individual dimension region zones, similar to the icons
152 already been drawn on regions.
153 * Fixed loop and sample reference icons being displayed incorrectly sometimes,
154 because unused dimension regions were not ignored.
155 * Script Editor: Show line numbers.
156 * Script Editor: Right aligned line numbers.
157 * Script Editor: Fixed font readability issue on Mac.
158 * Added EG state machine options for EG1 and EG2, which may be used to
159 configure whether the individual EG stages may be cancelled.
160 * Fix: after the combine instruments dialog, the new instrument was not
161 correctly displayed by the GUI as being selected.
162 * Fix: automatically reload instrument after script slots have been modified.
163 * Combine Tool: OK button has focus now by default to quickly combine
164 instruments by pressing Return key.
165 * Added keyboard accelerators Shift+F1 to Shift+F12 for quick assigning
166 a script to the currently selected instrument, and an appropriate
167 additional menu "Instruments" -> "Assign Script".
168 * Added keyboard accelerators Ctrl + Arrow Down and Ctrl + Arrow Up for
169 switching between instruments.
170 * Added search filter field which allows to quickly filter the instrument
171 list by case insensitive search tokens.
172 * Fix: navigating between dimension zones by keyboard did sometimes not
173 work after switching from an instrument with different dimension types.
174 * Fix: Sample references view dialog had some odd behaviors, like it did not
175 respond to mouse scroll events for instance.
176 * Debian: Raised Debian compatibility level to Debian 9 "Stretch".
177 * Raised max. pitchbend range to 48 semi tones.
178 * Added experimental support for upcoming GTK(MM)4
179 (for now up to GTKMM 3.91.2 while still preserving backward compatibility
180 down to GTKMM 2).
181 * Re-merged r2845 to compile now with and without Gtk "Stock ID" API
182 (see also r3158).
183 * Visual cosmetics on Gtk 3.
184 * Script Editor: Use consistent font size on all screens and DPI settings.
185
186 Version 1.0.0 (2015-07-17)
187
188 * minor fix in configure for cross-compiling
189 * minor Makefile fix for parallel make
190 * use Cairo instead of deprecated gdk drawing primitives
191 * avoid deprecated gtk methods when using newer gtk versions
192 * raised minimum supported gtkmm version to 2.8
193 * ported to gtkmm 3, keeping compatibility with gtkmm 2
194 * gtkmm 3 fix: rewrote the custom widgets (regionchooser and
195 dimregionchooser) so they only draw pixels in the on_draw
196 method. This should make them work again in newer gtkmm 3
197 environments.
198 * added support for new glibmm threads API
199 * gtkmm 3 fix: the WrapLabel custom widget is not needed in gtkmm 3
200 * fixed building on Debian testing (#186)
201 * modernized configure script
202 * added graphical curves for velocity response and crossfade
203 * added "Duplicate Instrument" function
204 * fixed import of 32 bit float wav files
205 * code refactoring: created a PropEdit class for property editor
206 windows, moved Table class from mainwindow to paramedit
207 * minor gui tweaks: made note entry fields a bit wider, set a
208 minimum width for scales
209 * bug fix: avoid stale information in the instrument properties
210 window when a new file is loaded or the instrument is removed
211 * cross fade graph: draw curves of all layers in the same graph
212 * made sure the instruments menu is updated when instruments are
213 added, removed or renamed
214 * fixed name entry field in instrument properties window
215 * use character encoding Windows-1252 for all strings in gig files
216 * show dimension zone start and end as numeric text labels
217 * copying sample informations automatically may now be disabled from the
218 new "Edit" main menu
219 * import 'fine tune' when importing samples with libsndfile
220 * Mac OS X: initialize gtk and gettext with files from base
221 directory of the libgigedit library
222 * Mac OS X: fixed "recently used" in file dialogs
223 * Mac OS X: avoid crash when starting gigedit as an application
224 bundle
225 * Mac OS X: try to launch the GUI on the process's "main" thread
226 * show build date and libgig version number in about dialog
227 * added dialog for editing the CtrlTrigger and Legato midi rules
228 * if there is no region yet, show a red hint text to the user that he may
229 right click on the region chooser area to add a region
230 * added tooltips to main menu entries (was buggy before)
231 * added tooltips to instruments tree view and samples tree view
232 * added various tooltips and adjusted some labels on the region settings
233 pane
234 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: only a small set of possible MIDI controllers
235 was selectable for EG1 controller, EG2 controller and attenuation
236 controller (and no CC number was shown in the combo box). Obviously the
237 additional MIDI controllers can only be used with LinuxSampler, they would
238 not work with Gigasampler/GigaStudio. A warning message will be shown
239 though whenever somebody tries to use one of those extension controllers.
240 * Combine instruments: a new feature that allows to merge a selection of
241 instruments to one new single instrument. It uses the 'layer' dimension
242 to stack up the instruments. This feature is available from the main menu
243 under 'Tools' -> 'Combine Instruments'.
244 * Dimension zone amount: Support for increasing and decreasing the amount of
245 dimension zones by right clicking on the respective zone and either
246 selecting "delete" or "split" in the popup menu.
247 * Combine instruments: generalized this tool to allow combining instruments
248 based on any dimension, not only the 'layer' dimension.
249 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: show dialog window with at least 460x300px on
250 initial usage (was far too small by default).
251 * File Property Dialog: allow viewing and altering the Giga file format
252 version (by combo box).
253 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: added support for viewing and editing
254 dimensions of all regions simultaniously.
255 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing and editing
256 real-time instrument scripts. Instrument scripts are a LinuxSampler
257 extension of the original Giga format and will not load with the
258 GigaStudio software.
259 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing script slots for
260 instruments. Script slots define which scripts shall be executed for an
261 instrument by the sampler and in which order.
262 * Samples tree view on main window: display the amount of references for
263 each sample and show the respective sample in gray color in case it is not
264 referenced at all.
265 * Samples tree view: implemented sample reference browser, which shows a
266 tree with all instruments and their respective regions which reference the
267 selected sample once ore more.
268 * Restructured main menu: duplicated all popup menus to the main menu,
269 automatically switch to the right tree view tab when either selecting the
270 "Sample", "Instrument" or "Script" main menu entry.
271 * Dimension Region Selector: implemented multi zone selection by press and
272 hold CTRL key.
273 * Dimension Region Selector: show bottom and upper limit values for all
274 dimension zones, not just the currently selected ones.
275 * Dimension Region Selector: Fixed drawing issues when zone sizes were
276 altered by mouse drag and labels being displayed at wrong positions.
277 * Region Chooser: Double click opens dimension manager dialog.
278 * Dimension Manager: Clicking on dimension type cell of an existing dimension
279 opens a popup to alter the dimension type.
280 * Script Tree: Double click opens script editor.
281 * Fixed potential crash if exception was thrown while opening a gig file.
282 * Added support for visual progress bar while saving a gig file.
283 * Automatically switch the sampler's (audible) instrument whenever another
284 instrument was selected in gigedit (this default behavior can be switched
285 off in the settings menu of gigedit).
286 * Dimension Region Editor: Show coarse sample format info (audio channels,
287 bit depth, sample rate) and unique sample ID (since the gig format allows
288 different samples to have the same name).
289 * Dimension Region Editor: Added button "Select Sample" on the sample tab,
290 which allows to conveniently select the dimension region's sample on the
291 left hand side's samples tree view.
292 * Sample Referenve View Dialog: Clicking on a reference in the list closes
293 the dialog and jumps directly to the respective instrument, region and
294 dimension region the respective sample reference is located at.
295 * Fixed instruments, samples and scripts to appear twice after save.
296 * Implemented reordering of instruments by drag & drop.
297 * Implemented replacing of existing samples.
298 * Added "X" button next to sample reference field, which allows to remove
299 the current sample reference, allowing to create a "silent case" where
300 no sample shall be played.
301 * Fixed file name disappearing from title bar on certain actions.
302 * Added new menu item "View"->"Refresh All".
303 * Added new menu item "Samples"->"Remove Unused Samples".
304 * Region Chooser: when moving a region around automatically move the
305 keyboard position dependent pitch accordingly (can be turned off with
306 "Settings"->"Move root key with region moved").
307 * Added option to main menu for performing "Save" operation with a
308 tempoary file (may perform faster than directly modifying existing
309 .gig file).
310
311 Version 0.2.0 (2009-07-31)

318 * bugfix: sometimes you could not delete more than one dimension
319 * filter headers are now also greyed out when the filter is inactive
320 * autoconf fix: LS plugin dirs with digits in their prefix
321 (e.g. "/usr/lib64/foo") are now resolved in relative dirs as well
322 (show a warning when resolving the relative path failed)
323 * keys on the virtual keyboard now highlight on note on events on
324 sampler side
325 * virtual keyboard can now trigger notes for the sampler (only in
326 live-mode of course)

328 (selectable by combobox below the keyboard)
329 * show absolute velocity value of note-on & note-off events below
330 the virtual MIDI keyboard
331 * renamed misleading names regarding the gig format's "keyswitching"
332 feature (the dimension is now displayed as "keyswitching" instead of
333 "keyboard" in the dimregchooser widget and the two parameters for
334 defining the actual keyswitching area on the keyboard in the instruments
335 properties dialog are now called "Keyswitching range low/high" instead of
336 "Dimension key range low/high")
337 * added "replace all samples" function to samples popup menu
338 (patch by Anders Dahnielson, a bit extended, fixes #73)
339 * bugfix: dimension manager window didn't update when another region
340 was selected (#78)
