* Preparations for new release (Gigedit 1.1.1).

1 persson 1121 Gigedit
2     =======
3 persson 1052
4 persson 1121 Gigedit is an instrument editor for gig files. Gig files are
5     used by software samplers such as LinuxSampler and GigaStudio.
6    
7     With gigedit it is possible to modify existing gig files and also to
8 persson 1441 create completely new instruments from scratch. Gigedit can be run as
9     a stand-alone application, or as a plugin to LinuxSampler.
10 persson 1121
11 persson 1441 Please note that this is an early version that only includes the most
12 persson 1121 basic features needed to create and edit gig files. There is still a

15     Be sure to backup your original gig files before editing them in
16     gigedit.

36     ============
37    
38 schoenebeck 1322 Gigedit requires gtkmm, libgig and libsndfile libraries. There is an
39 persson 1441 optional dependency to LinuxSampler, for being able to play
40     instruments while editing. Also optional is the dependency to gettext
41     for internationalization support.

69     Internationalization: Help on Translations !
70     ============================================
71    
72     You want to help us translating gigedit into a language you speak? Good!
73     This is how it works:
74    
75     Updating an existing translation (at the moment only Swedish and German):
76     -------------------------------------------------------------------------
77    
78     First collect all text from gigedit's current C++ source code, by typing
79     the following:
80    
81     cd po
82     make update-po
83    
84     The language source files (de.po, sv.po, ...) are now updated and you may
85     open one of it now either with a text editor of your choice or better: by
86     using the graphical translation tool "poedit":
87    
88     poedit de.po
89    
90    
91     Add a new translation (for another language not yet supported):
92     ---------------------------------------------------------------
93    
94     First collect all text from gigedit's current C++ source code, by typing
95     the following:
96    
97     cd po
98     make update-po
99    
100     There should now be a yet untranslated file "gigedit.pot". Rename it to
101     to the language you want to translate, i.e.:
102    
103     mv gigedit.pot ru.po
104    
105     Now either open the file ("ru.po") with a text editor of your choice or
106     better: by using the graphical translation tool "poedit":
107    
108     poedit ru.po
109    
110     After you are done with translating the language file, please send it to us!
