* Mac OS X: fixed crash when unloading plugin on 10.7 and later

1 schoenebeck 1993 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2    
3 capela 2174 * plugin changes:
4 schoenebeck 2304 - LV2 "state" extension support (patch by David Robillard)
5 capela 2174
6 persson 2086 * packaging changes:
7     - fixed building with newer MinGW-w64
8 persson 2183 - Mac OS X: support the new dir for Core Audio SDK
9     - Mac OS X: fixed building outside source directory
10     - made sure all source files for hostplugins are included when
11     doing "make dist"
12     - removed empty directories left from the cvs to svn migration
13 persson 2185 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.6.1
14 persson 2203 - another "make dist" fix, for the LV2 plugin
15 persson 2185 - made --enable-pthread-testcancel default on Mac OS X
16 persson 2197 - minor Makefile fix for building lscpparser when build and source
17     directories are separate
18 persson 2203 - Mac OS X: made it possible to specify plugin installation dir to
19     configure
20 persson 2208 - Mac OS X: Makefile fix for the install-strip target
21 persson 2335 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.7
22 persson 2343 - fixed configure script error with old autoconf versions
23     - lsatomic.h: use gcc provided atomic functions if building with
24     gcc 4.7 and C++11
25 persson 2086
26     * general changes:
27 iliev 2012 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
28     the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
29 schoenebeck 2047 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
30     respective profiling code is currently broken
31 schoenebeck 2053 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
32     "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
33     where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
34     (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
35 schoenebeck 2121 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
36     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
37     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
38     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
39     the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
40     effect type is)
41     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
42     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
43     the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
44     effect type is)
45 schoenebeck 2124 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
46 schoenebeck 2140 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512
47     (as suggested by Alex Stone)

49 iliev 2296 - experimental support for per voice equalization
50 iliev 2306 - added command line option --exec-after-init
51 schoenebeck 2330 - Introduced new C++ API method:
52     EngineChannel::InstrumentFileName(int index)
53     allowing to retrieve the whole list of files used for the loaded
54     instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
55     instruments for example are splitted over several files like
56     "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
57 iliev 2012
58 persson 2043 * Gigasampler format engine:

345 schoenebeck 1599
346 schoenebeck 1639 * packaging changes:
347     - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,
348     causing e.g. the libgig test to fail when
349     "./configure --disable-jack-driver" was used
350     (patch by Alexis Ballier)

358 persson 1897 - Windows: look for editor plugins and Fantasia using base
359 schoenebeck 1928 directory of liblinuxsampler dll (look in the same directory and one
360     directory above)
361 persson 1899 - configure script fix: removed unconditional use of SSE
362 persson 1923 - fixed building with sqlite installed in a non-standard directory
363 persson 1931 - when cross-compiling, don't try to create instruments.db
364     - fix for new mingw-w64 version, which has usleep
365 schoenebeck 1639
366 schoenebeck 1601 * general changes:
367     - bugfix: on some POSIX systems instrument editor plugins refused to
368     load as we used a non-portable Linux specific struct field
369     (fixes bug #70, patch by Ronald Baljeu)
370 schoenebeck 1602 - fixed endless loop which occured when loading an instrument editor
371     plugin DLL on Windows systems failed
372 persson 1644 - fixed memory leaks that occurred when liblinuxsampler was unloaded
373     - optimized the SynchronizedConfig class so it doesn't wait
374     unnecessarily long after an update
375 schoenebeck 1653 - added support for notifying instrument editors on note-on / note-off
376     events (e.g. to highlight the pressed keys on the virtual keyboard
377     of gigedit)
378 schoenebeck 1659 - added support for triggering notes by instrument editors (see above)
379 schoenebeck 1653 - be verbose on DLL load errors (on Linux)
380 schoenebeck 1681 - fixed di-harmonic triangle LFO implementation (this LFO implementation
381     is only used by very few systems, most pick the int math
382     implementation, which is usually faster)
383 persson 1748 - fixes for audio drivers with varying buffer sizes
384 persson 1777 - experimental support for running LinuxSampler as a DSSI, LV2 and
385     VST plugin

388 persson 1790 - added memory ordering constraints to improve stability on
389     multi-core and multi-cpu systems
390 schoenebeck 1800 - maximum voices and disk streams can now be altered at runtime
391 persson 1825 - fixed CPU feature detection on x86_64 (maybe fixes #108)
392 schoenebeck 1830 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
393     be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
394     stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
395 schoenebeck 1868 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
396     a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
397 schoenebeck 1876 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following
398     liblinuxsampler C++ API methods: InstrumentEditor::Main(),
399     InstrumentEditor::Launch(),
400     InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor()
401 persson 1887 - theoretical fix: made SynchronizedConfig follow C++0x memory
402     model more strictly
403 persson 1895 - fixes for using large audio device buffers
404 persson 1951 - Windows: add the installation directory to the DLL search path

406     gigedit on systems with other GTK versions installed)
407 schoenebeck 1601
408 schoenebeck 1599 * audio driver:
409     - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
410     max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
411 schoenebeck 1604 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
412     opposed to the LSCP specs
413 schoenebeck 1607 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
414     reflected the wrong value
415 persson 1644 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
416 persson 1748 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used
417 persson 1777 - JACK: use jack_client_open instead of the deprecated
418 persson 1748 jack_client_new
419 iliev 1829 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
420 persson 1888 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
421     previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
422     (fixes #117)
423 persson 1889 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
424     win64)
425 persson 1895 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
426     - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed

431     stereo
432 persson 1922 - added channel routing, fxsends and midi maps to the settings
433     stored in the plugin state
434 schoenebeck 1930 - performance optimization of AudioChannel::MixTo() and
435     AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
436     (if available)
437 persson 1951 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
438     exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
439 schoenebeck 1599
440 persson 1651 * MIDI driver:
441     - added JACK MIDI driver
442 schoenebeck 1715 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
443     want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
444     input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
445 persson 1889 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
446 persson 1887 CoreMidi or AU
447 persson 1889 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
448 persson 1924 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by
449     moving the logic to a non-RT thread
450 persson 1951 - fixed minor memory leak in ALSA driver
451 persson 1651
452 schoenebeck 1604 * instruments database:
453 iliev 1603 - avoid time consuming samples scanning when adding instruments
454     to the instruments database
455 iliev 1727 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
456 iliev 1781 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
457     in the instruments database
458     (patch by Chris Cherrett & Andrew Williams, a bit adjusted)
459 persson 1908 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
460     instrument database compilable
461 schoenebeck 1930 - added instrument database support on Windows
462     works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
463     the instruments DB file is located in
464     %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
465     databases for each windows user
466     if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
467     and then creates an empty DB
468 persson 1943 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
469 iliev 1603
470 persson 1644 * Gigasampler format engine:
471     - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
472     while notes were playing
473 persson 1646 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
474     isn't running
475 persson 1701 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
476     enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
477 schoenebeck 1715 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
478     respective FX send MIDI controller was used
479 schoenebeck 1724 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
480 schoenebeck 1762 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
481     whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
482     connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
483     on)
484 persson 1748 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
485     sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
486     be played
487 schoenebeck 1750 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
488     which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
489     drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
490     part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
491     LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
492     defined for the sampler
493 persson 1764 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
494     audio thread isn't running
495 persson 1844 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
496 schoenebeck 1852 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
497     un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
498     sampler engine anymore
499     - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
500     e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
501 schoenebeck 1857 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
502     same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
503     same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
504 persson 1858 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
505     instrument-level gig parameters
506     - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
507 schoenebeck 1860 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
508 persson 1862 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
509     - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
510 persson 1906 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
511     note was silent
512 persson 1923 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
513     same time a new instrument was loading
514 persson 1644
515 schoenebeck 1687 * LSCP server:
516     - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
517     react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
518     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
519 schoenebeck 1695 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
520     react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
521     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
522 iliev 1727 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
523     SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
524 iliev 1771 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
525     frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
526     - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
527     KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
528 iliev 1754 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
529     was incorrect
530 iliev 1763 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
531 schoenebeck 1800 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
532     amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
533     be triggered respectively
534     - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
535     amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
536     which will be triggered respectively
537 persson 1808 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
538     a gigedit file dialog is opened)
539 iliev 1848 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
540 iliev 1882 - hard close of all sockets on exit
541 persson 1897 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
542     driver
543 schoenebeck 1687
544 iliev 1761 * Bug fixes:
545     - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
546     to start instrument loading after another channel
547 iliev 1826 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
548     instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
549 iliev 1827 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
550     instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
551 iliev 1835 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
552     - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
553     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
554     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
555     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
556     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
557     - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
558 iliev 1843 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
559 iliev 1847 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
560     channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
561 iliev 1855 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
562 persson 1870 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
563     PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
564 persson 1889 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
565     plugin was unloaded
566 persson 1896 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
567     problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
568 persson 1933 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
569     Windows
570 iliev 1761
571    
572 schoenebeck 1560 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
573 schoenebeck 1454
574     * packaging changes:
575     - added autoconf checks for pthread library
576     - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
577     glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
578 senoner 1502 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
579 schoenebeck 1454
580 persson 1455 * general changes:
581     - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
582     editor closed
583 persson 1534 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
584     out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
585     decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
586     order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
587     - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
588     GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
589     the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
590     bugs.
591     - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
592     24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
593     endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
594     unaligned 32bit read and shift
595     - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
596     output via ASIO)
597     - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
598 iliev 1541 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
599     (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
600     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
601 persson 1455
602 senoner 1500 * AUDIO driver:
603 persson 1534 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
604 senoner 1500
605 senoner 1485 * MIDI driver:
606 schoenebeck 1495 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
607 senoner 1485
608 schoenebeck 1471 * LSCP server:
609     - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
610     forward slash path separators instead of backslash
611     (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
612 schoenebeck 1495 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
613     apostrophes as well
614 schoenebeck 1525 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
615     "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
616     "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
617     about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
618     running on
619 schoenebeck 1471
620 schoenebeck 1424 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
621 schoenebeck 947
622 schoenebeck 1065 * packaging changes:
623 schoenebeck 1212 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
624     API header files anymore
625 schoenebeck 1065 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
626     the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
627 schoenebeck 1175 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
628     capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
629     to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
630     OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
631 schoenebeck 1360 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
632     parameters
633 schoenebeck 1424 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
634     C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
635     are now in global_private.h
636     - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
637     - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
638     - fixed warnings in API doc generation
639 schoenebeck 1065
640 schoenebeck 947 * general changes:
641     - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
642     flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
643 schoenebeck 973 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
644 schoenebeck 947 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
645     loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
646     messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
647     strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
648     instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
649     quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
650     respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
651     global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
652     dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
653 schoenebeck 973 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
654     MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
655     a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
656     drumkits is possible
657 iliev 1108 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
658     MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
659 schoenebeck 990 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
660     due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
661     dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
662 schoenebeck 1001 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
663     output channels for being processed by external effect processors
664     (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
665     controllers
666 schoenebeck 1005 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
667 iliev 1130 - Implemented new, improved notification system
668 schoenebeck 1149 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
669     (patch by Toshi Nagata)
670 iliev 1161 - implemented instruments database
671 iliev 1345 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
672 schoenebeck 1212 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
673     within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
674     you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
675 schoenebeck 1407 startup, added a new LSCP command:
676     "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
677 schoenebeck 1212 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
678     given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
679     time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
680 schoenebeck 1321 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
681     in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
682     without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
683     wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
684 schoenebeck 1221 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
685     policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
686     thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
687     threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
688     setting their own policy and priority
689 schoenebeck 1233 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
690     main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
691     its output
692 persson 1248 - fixed some minor memory leaks
693 schoenebeck 1259 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
694     enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
695 schoenebeck 1314 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
696     register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
697 schoenebeck 1424 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
698 schoenebeck 947
699     * MIDI driver:
700     - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
701    
702 schoenebeck 1049 * audio driver:
703     - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
704     parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
705     (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
706    
707 persson 951 * Gigasampler format engine:
708     - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
709     die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
710     voice starvation for some gigs)
711 persson 1038 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
712     - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
713     playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
714     command
715 persson 1039 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
716 schoenebeck 1041 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
717 persson 1046 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
718     above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
719     even if sustain is 100%
720 persson 1147 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
721     noises or crashes
722 schoenebeck 1149 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
723 schoenebeck 1181 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
724     supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
725 schoenebeck 1321 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
726     instead of a fix value
727 schoenebeck 1348 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
728     127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
729     changed
730 persson 951
731 schoenebeck 1244 * LSCP server:
732     - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
733     (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
734 schoenebeck 1245 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
735     (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
736     - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
737     sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
738     \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
739     code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
740 schoenebeck 1389 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
741     least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
742     "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
743     "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
744     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
745     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
746     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
747     "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
748 schoenebeck 1252 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
749     occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
750     character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
751 persson 1349 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
752     settings
753 schoenebeck 1379 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
754     of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
755     (fixes #57)
756 schoenebeck 1244
757 iliev 959 * Bug fixes:
758     - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
759 persson 1038 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
760     channel audio output device"
761 iliev 1283 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
762     on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
763 iliev 1295 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
764     device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
765     to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
766 iliev 1296 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
767     the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
768     unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
769 iliev 1297 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
770 iliev 1298 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
771     channel changes
772 iliev 1305 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
773     audio output channels and MIDI input ports
774 iliev 1306 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
775     an audio output device
776 schoenebeck 1332 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
777 iliev 959
778 schoenebeck 1221 * test cases:
779     - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
780    
781 schoenebeck 937 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
782 persson 696
783 schoenebeck 697 * packaging changes:
784 capela 868 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
785     to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
786     to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
787 schoenebeck 697 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
788     applications to link against liblinuxsampler
789     - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
790     (Doxygen required)
791 schoenebeck 715 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
792     implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
793     di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
794     with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
795     configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
796 schoenebeck 829 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
797     provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
798 schoenebeck 849 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
799     messages
800 schoenebeck 852 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
801     MIDI drivers
802 schoenebeck 909 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
803     (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
804 schoenebeck 697
805 persson 696 * Gigasampler format engine:
806 schoenebeck 738 - extensive synthesis optimization
807     (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
808     prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
809     each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
810 persson 830 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
811     linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
812     --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
813 persson 696 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
814 persson 729 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
815     following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
816     controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
817 persson 791 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
818     cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
819 persson 877 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
820 schoenebeck 775 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
821 schoenebeck 781 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
822     which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
823 persson 783 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
824     accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
825 persson 797 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
826     time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
827 persson 799 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
828 schoenebeck 829 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
829     - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
830     all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
831     altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
832     mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
833 persson 832 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
834     parameter) and crossfade
835 persson 831 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
836     parameter
837 persson 832 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
838     messages
839 persson 865 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
840     instead of the wave chunk
841     - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
842     not equal to a power of two
843 persson 877 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
844     accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
845     and lowpass turbo.
846 persson 903 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
847     16 bits anymore
848     - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
849     aftertouch)
850 persson 922 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
851     amplifying from 0)
852 persson 696
853 schoenebeck 711 * LSCP server:
854     - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
855 iliev 793 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
856     network activity (fixes bug #26)
857 schoenebeck 826 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
858     (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
859 schoenebeck 711
860 schoenebeck 838 * audio driver:
861     - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
862    
863 schoenebeck 775 * MIDI driver:
864     - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
865     messages several times instead of once
866 schoenebeck 906 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
867     for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
868 persson 922 - added checks for bad MIDI data
869 schoenebeck 775
870 schoenebeck 900 * linuxsampler application:
871     - show available sampler engine types on startup
872    
873 schoenebeck 705 * general changes:
874     - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
875     LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
876     fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
877     introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
878 iliev 716 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
879     --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
880     processing of muted channels.
881 iliev 777 - support for sostenuto pedal
882 iliev 779 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
883 iliev 778 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
884     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
885 persson 835 - fixed some memory management errors
886 persson 841 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
887     LSCP commands were executed
888 schoenebeck 925 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
889     sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
890 schoenebeck 705
891 schoenebeck 692 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
892 schoenebeck 686
893     * packaging changes:
894     - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
895    
896 schoenebeck 687 * Gigasampler format engine:
897     - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
898     disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
899 schoenebeck 688 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
900     for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
901     stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
902     about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
903     appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
904 schoenebeck 687
905 schoenebeck 677 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
906 schoenebeck 609
907     * packaging changes:
908     - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
909     (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
910 schoenebeck 617 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
911     './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
912 schoenebeck 654 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
913     - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
914     (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
915 schoenebeck 649
916     * Gigasampler format engine:
917     - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
918     - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
919     - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
920     note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
921     note-off velocity.
922 schoenebeck 663 - revised voice stealing
923     (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
924 schoenebeck 659 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
925 schoenebeck 668 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
926     instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
927     (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
928     this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
929 schoenebeck 669 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
930     (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
931     resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
932 schoenebeck 670 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
933     instrument or audio output device change
934 schoenebeck 654
935 schoenebeck 620 * LSCP server:
936 schoenebeck 654 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
937 schoenebeck 660 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
938 schoenebeck 670 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
939 schoenebeck 609
940 schoenebeck 668 * linuxsampler application:
941     - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
942     default IP address and port of LSCP server
943    
944 schoenebeck 579 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
945    
946     * initial release
