  doesn't sound naturally with a drumkit.

1 schoenebeck 1993 Version CVS HEAD (?)
2    
3 persson 2086 * packaging changes:
4     - fixed building with newer MinGW-w64
5 persson 2183 - Mac OS X: support the new dir for Core Audio SDK
6     - Mac OS X: fixed building outside source directory
7     - made sure all source files for hostplugins are included when
8     doing "make dist"
9     - removed empty directories left from the cvs to svn migration
10 persson 2185 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.6.1
11 persson 2203 - another "make dist" fix, for the LV2 plugin
12 persson 2185 - made --enable-pthread-testcancel default on Mac OS X
13 persson 2197 - minor Makefile fix for building lscpparser when build and source
14     directories are separate
15 persson 2203 - Mac OS X: made it possible to specify plugin installation dir to
16     configure
17 persson 2208 - Mac OS X: Makefile fix for the install-strip target
18 persson 2335 - fixed compilation with gcc 4.7
19 persson 2343 - fixed configure script error with old autoconf versions
20     - lsatomic.h: use gcc provided atomic functions if building with

23 persson 2378 - fixed linkage error when building with
24     LDFLAGS="-Wl,--no-undefined" (#190)
25 persson 2390 - fixed compilation with Clang 3.2
26 persson 2382
27 persson 2086 * general changes:
28 iliev 2012 - Refactoring: moved the independent code from
29     the Gigasampler format engine to base classes
30 schoenebeck 2047 - command line option '--profile' is currently disabled, since the
31     respective profiling code is currently broken
32 schoenebeck 2053 - Introduced support for optional environment variable
33     "LINUXSAMPLER_PLUGIN_DIR" which allows to override the directory
34     where the sampler shall look for instrument editor plugins
35     (patch by Luis Garrido, slightly modified).
36 schoenebeck 2121 - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ArrH which allows to set volume per note
37     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1CrrH which allows to set pan per note
38     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1DrrH which allows to set reverb send per
39     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
40     the 1st effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
41     effect type is)
42     - implemented Roland GS NRPN 1ErrH which allows to set chorus send per
43     note (in this implementation of the sampler its simply hard routed to
44     the 2nd effect send of the sampler channel, no matter what the actual
45     effect type is)
46 schoenebeck 2124 - implemented support for internal LADSPA effects
47 schoenebeck 2140 - raised limit of program change queue from 100 to 512

55     instrument on an engine channel (a.k.a. part). Some GigaStudio
56     instruments for example are splitted over several files like
57     "Foo.gig", "Foo.gx01", "Foo.gx02", ...
58 schoenebeck 2375 - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxVoices().
59     - Added new C++ API method Sampler::GetGlobalMaxStreams().

72     key
73 persson 2382 - bugfix: pitch LFO controller "internal+aftertouch" was broken
74     - bugfix: filter keyboard tracking was broken
75     - filter performance fix (an unnecessary copy was made of the

294     - CoreMIDI: added driver specific port parameter "AUTO_BIND", if enabled
295     the driver will automatically connect to other CoreMIDI clients' ports

359 iliev 2201 - Fixed possible crashes due to corrupted MIDI/audio device list
360     after MIDI/audio device creation failure
361 schoenebeck 2275 - When creating MIDI instrument map entries with "PERSISTENT" type, the
362     instruments were uselessly precached with zero samples, however it still
363     took the full preloading time and on 1st program change the respective
364     instrument was completely reloaded again.
365 persson 2277 - fixed handling of rapid bank select and program change messages
366     sent to the same sampler channel (patch from the Open Octave

387 schoenebeck 1599
388 schoenebeck 1639 * packaging changes:
389     - autoconf bugfix: the PKG_CONFIG variable wasn't initialized properly,

434 schoenebeck 1830 - automatic stacktrace mechanism is now turned off by default and can
435     be switched on by command line option "--stacktrace" (the automatic
436     stacktrace mechanism seems to be broken on most systems at the moment)
437 schoenebeck 1868 - C++ API method InstrumentManager::LaunchInstrumentEditor() now returns
438     a pointer to the launched InstrumentEditor object
439 schoenebeck 1876 - added optional 3rd party user data parameter for following

450 schoenebeck 1599 * audio driver:
451     - removed the nonsense audio channel constraint (which was hard coded to
452     max. 100 audio channels) for most audio drivers
453 schoenebeck 1604 - JACK audio driver did not offer a device parameter "SAMPLERATE" as
454     opposed to the LSCP specs
455 schoenebeck 1607 - bugfix: the SAMPLERATE parameter of some drivers (e.g. JACK)
456     reflected the wrong value
457 persson 1644 - fixed a memory management bug in ASIO driver
458 persson 1748 - Makefile fix: JACK_CFLAGS wasn't used

460 persson 1748 jack_client_new
461 iliev 1829 - added (experimental) CoreAudio driver
462 persson 1888 - applied old fixes to the ASIO driver that were included in the
463     previous binary release but accidentally never committed to CVS
464     (fixes #117)
465 persson 1889 - fixes for ASIO on mingw-w64 (iasio wrapper is not needed on
466     win64)
467 persson 1895 - VST: added support for sample rate and buffer size changes
468     - VST: close editor (Fantasia) when the VST is removed

477     AudioChannel::CopyTo() methods using GCC vector exensions
478     (if available)
479 persson 1951 - ASIO fixes: avoid initializing the device twice, avoid throwing
480     exception when getting parameters from a disconnected device
481 schoenebeck 1599
482 persson 1651 * MIDI driver:
483     - added JACK MIDI driver
484 schoenebeck 1715 - dispatch bank select as ordinary CC as well, the user might seriously
485     want to (mis)use it for some purpose ("fixed" in all current MIDI
486     input drivers: ALSA, CoreMIDI, JACK, MidiShare, MME)
487 persson 1889 - bugfix: pitch bend wasn't working with JackMidi, VST, LV2, MME,
488 persson 1887 CoreMidi or AU
489 persson 1889 - fixed mingw-w64 compilation error in MME driver
490 persson 1924 - made program change handling in MIDI thread real-time safe by

496     to the instruments database
497 iliev 1727 - added support for handling lost files in the instruments database
498 iliev 1781 - Implemented option for adding instruments in separate directories
499     in the instruments database

501 persson 1908 - work-around for missing fnmatch function on Windows to make
502     instrument database compilable
503 schoenebeck 1930 - added instrument database support on Windows
504     works with both standalone mode and VST plugin.
505     the instruments DB file is located in
506     %USERPROFILE%\.linuxsampler\instruments.db which allows different
507     databases for each windows user
508     if no DB is present it automatically creates the .linuxsampler subdir
509     and then creates an empty DB
510 persson 1943 - fixed recursive import, which was broken on Windows
511 iliev 1603
512 persson 1644 * Gigasampler format engine:
513     - fixed a memory leak that could happen when a channel was deleted
514     while notes were playing
515 persson 1646 - made it possible to load an instrument even if the audio thread
516     isn't running
517 persson 1701 - added partial support for the "Controller Triggered" MIDI rule,
518     enough for piano gigs with pedal noise samples
519 schoenebeck 1715 - minor fix: only mark FX sends as being modified if really the
520     respective FX send MIDI controller was used
521 schoenebeck 1724 - added support for GM global device volume SysEx message
522 schoenebeck 1762 (can be selected at compile time to either apply globally to the
523     whole sampler [default] or only to the sampler channels that are
524     connected to the respective MIDI input port the SysEx message arrived
525     on)
526 persson 1748 - bugfix: notes triggered at position 0 in the audio buffer were
527     sometimes wrongly killed in the same buffer, causing no sound to
528     be played
529 schoenebeck 1750 - added support for chromatic / drumkit mode Roland GS Sysex message
530     which is usally used to switch a part between chromatic sounds and
531     drumkit sounds (as opposed to their common default setting of MIDI
532     part 10 being a drumkit part and all other ones chromatic parts), in
533     LS however one can switch between the first 16 MIDI instrument maps
534     defined for the sampler
535 persson 1764 - made it possible to create multiple sample channels even if the
536     audio thread isn't running
537 persson 1844 - fixed crash when removing channel with active voices (#116)
538 schoenebeck 1852 - bugfix: on sample reference changes (instrument editor), only
539     un-cache the respective sample if it's really not used by any
540     sampler engine anymore
541     - re-cache samples in case they were changed by an instrument editor,
542     e.g. when a sample was added while playing (#82)
543 schoenebeck 1857 - fixed hanging notes which occured when note-off event had the exact
544     same time stamp as the voice's note-on event and occured both in the
545     same audio fragment cycle (fixes bug #112)
546 persson 1858 - added support for the "fine tune" and "pitch bend range"
547     instrument-level gig parameters
548     - fixed minor artifacts in pitch bend handling
549 schoenebeck 1860 - added support for GS Reset SysEx message
550 persson 1862 - allow gig files to use unlimited downward pitch shifting
551     - added a limit check for upward pitch shifting
552 persson 1906 - bugfix: sometimes, when playing a note twice fast, the second
553     note was silent
554 persson 1923 - fixed crash happening when a pitch bend event arrived at the
555     same time a new instrument was loading
556 persson 1644
557 schoenebeck 1687 * LSCP server:
558     - added new LSCP event "CHANNEL_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
559     react on MIDI data arriving on certain sampler channels (so far only
560     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
561 schoenebeck 1695 - added new LSCP event "DEVICE_MIDI" which can be used by frontends to
562     react on MIDI data arriving on certain MIDI input devices (so far only
563     Note-On and Note-Off events are sent via this LSCP event)
564 iliev 1727 - added new LSCP commands: FIND LOST DB_INSTRUMENT_FILES and
565     SET DB_INSTRUMENT FILE_PATH
566 iliev 1771 - added new LSCP command: SEND CHANNEL MIDI_DATA which can be used by
567     frontends to send MIDI messages to specific sampler channel
568     - added two additional fields to GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO command -
569     KEY_BINDINGS and KEYSWITCH_BINDINGS
570 iliev 1754 - bugfix: the bank number provided by MIDI_INSTRUMENT_INFO notifications
571     was incorrect
572 iliev 1763 - Optimized the retrieval of the MIDI instrument mappings
573 schoenebeck 1800 - added new LSCP command "SET VOICES" to globally alter the maximum
574     amount of voices, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:VOICES" which will
575     be triggered respectively
576     - added new LSCP command "SET STREAMS" to globally alter the maximum
577     amount of disk streams, added new LSCP event "GLOBAL_INFO:STREAMS"
578     which will be triggered respectively
579 persson 1808 - bugfix: retry if "select" returns EINTR (this fixes a crash when
580     a gigedit file dialog is opened)
581 iliev 1848 - close all connections when LSCPServer is deleted
582 iliev 1882 - hard close of all sockets on exit
583 persson 1897 - bugfix: SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE didn't work with the MME
584     driver
585 schoenebeck 1687
586 iliev 1761 * Bug fixes:
587     - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel waiting
588     to start instrument loading after another channel
589 iliev 1826 - fixed a crash which occurs when removing a sampler channel with
590     instrument loading in progress (bug #113)
591 iliev 1827 - fixed termination caused by uncaught exception when adding MIDI
592     instrument with PERSISTENT load mode
593 iliev 1835 - fixed possible iterator invalidations when resetting the sampler
594     - fixed memory leaks when issuing the following LSCP commands:
595     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER INFO
596     GET AUDIO_OUTPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
597     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER INFO
598     GET MIDI_INPUT_DRIVER_PARAMETER INFO
599     - fixed possible compilation error when sqlite is not present
600 iliev 1843 - fixed orphaned pointers when setting maximum voices limit (bug #118)
601 iliev 1847 - fixed crash when changing the audio output device of a sampler
602     channel with loaded instrument and start playing notes
603 iliev 1855 - fixed endless loop in Engine::SuspendAll() (bug #120)
604 persson 1870 - fixed a low-level atomic load function that was broken on 64-bit
605     PowerPC, which probably could cause crashes on that platform
606 persson 1889 - fixed a memory management error which could cause a crash when a
607     plugin was unloaded
608 persson 1896 - bugfix: two private structs had the same name, which could cause
609     problems if the linker chose the wrong constructor
610 persson 1933 - fixed low-level ConditionServer usage bug that caused lockups on
611     Windows
612 iliev 1761
613    
614 schoenebeck 1560 Version 0.5.1 (6 December 2007)
615 schoenebeck 1454
616     * packaging changes:
617     - added autoconf checks for pthread library
618     - added autoconf check for pthread bug found on certain NPTL-enabled
619     glibc versions (see Gentoo bug report #194076)
620 senoner 1502 - added autoconf checks for MS Windows
621 schoenebeck 1454
622 persson 1455 * general changes:
623     - bugfix: the thread used by an editor plugin didn't die when the
624     editor closed
625 persson 1534 - bugfix: Ringbuffer.h: fill_write_space_with_null() did not zero
626     out all the space. operator--() did not apply size_mask after
627     decrementing the read_ptr. DEFAULT_WRAP_ELEMENTS set to 0 in
628     order to avoid problems with the _NonVolatileReader functions.
629     - bugfix: Stream.h: added a missing divide by BytesPerSample in
630     GetWriteSpace(). Since this function is currently only used in
631     the stream's qsort() compare function, it didn't trigger any
632     bugs.
633     - Resampler.h, Synthesizer.h: cubic interpolation now works in
634     24bit mode too. Faster method to read 24bit words on little
635     endian machines (x86): replaced 3 byte reads + shifts with a 1
636     unaligned 32bit read and shift
637     - experimental support for MS Windows (MIDI input via MME, AUDIO
638     output via ASIO)
639     - made handling of SIGINT signal (Ctrl-C) a bit more robust
640 iliev 1541 - support for monitoring the total number of active disk streams
641     (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT,
642     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_STREAM_COUNT)
643 persson 1455
644 senoner 1500 * AUDIO driver:
645 persson 1534 - added Windows ASIO low latency audio driver
646 senoner 1500
647 senoner 1485 * MIDI driver:
648 schoenebeck 1495 - added MME Windows MIDI driver
649 senoner 1485
650 schoenebeck 1471 * LSCP server:
651     - added support for Windows style path / filenames, however with
652     forward slash path separators instead of backslash
653     (i.e. "C:/foo/bar.gig")
654 schoenebeck 1495 - allow naughty liblscp to send non-string device parameters within
655     apostrophes as well
656 schoenebeck 1525 - added new LSCP commands: "GET FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>",
657     "LIST FILE INSTRUMENTS <file>" and
658     "GET FILE INSTRUMENT INFO <file> <index>" for retrieving informations
659     about an arbitrary instrument file on the system where the sampler is
660     running on
661 schoenebeck 1471
662 schoenebeck 1424 Version 0.5.0 (15 October 2007)
663 schoenebeck 947
664 schoenebeck 1065 * packaging changes:
665 schoenebeck 1212 - config.h is not going to be installed along with liblinuxsampler's
666     API header files anymore
667 schoenebeck 1065 - only the API relevant header (and source) files will be exported to
668     the Doxygen API documentation (explicitly listed in Doxyfile.in)
669 schoenebeck 1175 - added completely new XCode project files for Mac OSX which is now
670     capable to execute our autoconf environment, thus no need anymore
671     to maintain the compile time configuration file (osx/version.h) for
672     OSX manually (patch by Toshi Nagata)
673 schoenebeck 1360 - fixed buggy boolean --enable-foo / --disable-foo configure script
674     parameters
675 schoenebeck 1424 - global.h now only covers global definitions that are needed for the
676     C++ API header files, all implementation internal global definitions
677     are now in global_private.h
678     - atomic.h is not exposed to the C++ API anymore
679     - no need to include config.h anymore for using LS's API header files
680     - fixed warnings in API doc generation
681 schoenebeck 1065
682 schoenebeck 947 * general changes:
683     - replaced the old, confusing MIDI program change mechanism by a
684     flexible MIDI instrument mapper which allows to map arbitrary
685 schoenebeck 973 (MIDI bank, MIDI program) pairs with arbitrary
686 schoenebeck 947 (engine type, instrument file, file index) triplets which will be
687     loaded on the respective channel when such MIDI program change
688     messages arrive, beside that, each entry allows to define a life-time
689     strategy for the instrument, so the user can define whether the
690     instrument should i.e. be permanently loaded (to be able to switch
691     quickly among sounds) or i.e. loaded just on demand when the
692     respective program change arrives (to safe RAM space), as well as a
693     global volume factor for each entry, so the user can adjust the volume
694     dynamic of his mapped instrument collection without having to modify
695 schoenebeck 973 the instrument files, also one can manage arbitrary amount of such
696     MIDI instrument maps and assign each sampler channel individually
697     a certain map, so that i.e. separation of normal instruments and
698     drumkits is possible
699 iliev 1108 - new notification events for tracking changes to audio/MIDI devices,
700     MIDI instrument maps, MIDI instruments, FX sends, global volume.
701 schoenebeck 990 - sampler was limited to load max. 200 instruments in the background
702     due to a constant size RingBuffer FIFO which is now replaced by a
703     dynamic (unlimited) size std::list FIFO
704 schoenebeck 1001 - added FX sends, these allow to route audio signals to arbitrary audio
705     output channels for being processed by external effect processors
706     (i.e. jack-rack), the send levels are controllable via arbitrary MIDI
707     controllers
708 schoenebeck 1005 - global (sampler wide) volume can now be controlled at runtime
709 iliev 1130 - Implemented new, improved notification system
710 schoenebeck 1149 - fixed compilation errors regarding OSX
711     (patch by Toshi Nagata)
712 iliev 1161 - implemented instruments database
713 iliev 1345 - added support for escape sequences to the instruments database
714 schoenebeck 1212 - added highly experimental support for on-the-fly instrument editing
715     within the sampler's process (by using instrument editor plugins),
716     you'll notice the new "Registered instrument editors:" message on
717 schoenebeck 1407 startup, added a new LSCP command:
718     "EDIT CHANNEL INSTRUMENT <sampler-channel>"
719 schoenebeck 1212 to spawn a matching instrument editor for the instrument on the
720     given sampler channel, the plugin path can be overridden at compile
721     time with ./configure --enable-plugin-dir=/some/dir
722 schoenebeck 1321 - added experimental code for synchronizing instrument editors hosted
723     in the sampler's process to safely edit instruments while playing
724     without a crash (hopefully) by either suspending single regions
725     wherever possible or if unavoidable whole engine(s)
726 schoenebeck 1221 - fixed several issues in fundamental "Thread" class: set scheduling
727     policy and priority on thread level, set a minimum stack size for
728     thread (TODO: a reasonable value yet to be tested), bugfix: non-RT
729     threads simply inherited properties of starting thread instead of
730     setting their own policy and priority
731 schoenebeck 1233 - minor fix in our automatic stack trace mechanism on crashes, the
732     main process did not wait for the stack trace process to finish
733     its output
734 persson 1248 - fixed some minor memory leaks
735 schoenebeck 1259 - reenabled assembly features support, at the moment only for
736     enabling a fast denormal FPU mode (x86 platforms supporting SSE2)
737 schoenebeck 1314 - minor assembly fix in x86 features detection (don't use the PIC
738     register, to avoid relocations in the text segment at runtime)
739 schoenebeck 1424 - POSIX callback functions of Thread.h are hidden
740 schoenebeck 947
741     * MIDI driver:
742     - dispatch bank select (MSB and LSB) messages
743    
744 schoenebeck 1049 * audio driver:
745     - the ALSA audio output driver parameters now reflect the correct
746     parameter value ranges for the respective selected sound card
747     (patch by Till Wimmer, a bit fixed and extended)
748    
749 persson 951 * Gigasampler format engine:
750     - if a filter is used and EG2 finishes before EG1, let the voice
751     die when EG2 has finished (this fixes a problem with clicks and
752     voice starvation for some gigs)
753 persson 1038 - playback is no longer disabled during instrument loading
754     - all notes playing on a channel that changes its instrument keep
755     playing with the old instrument until they get a note off
756     command
757 persson 1039 - EG fix: a release value of zero could cause noises or crash
758 schoenebeck 1041 - handle MIDI coarse tuning messages (MIDI RPN #0 MSB #2 LSB)
759 persson 1046 - EG fine tuning: when attack is zero the EG starts at a level
760     above max sustain level, which means that there is a decay phase
761     even if sustain is 100%
762 persson 1147 - more EG fixes: the level could sometimes go below zero and cause
763     noises or crashes
764 schoenebeck 1149 - minor fix of EGDecay (patch by Toshi Nagata)
765 schoenebeck 1181 - fixed compiler error when --enable-override-filter-type was
766     supplied to the configure script (fixes #46)
767 schoenebeck 1321 - disk thread: queue sizes are now proportional to CONFIG_MAX_STREAMS
768     instead of a fix value
769 schoenebeck 1348 - behavior fix: on MIDI CC# 65 (portamento on / off), 126 (mono mode),
770     127 (solo mode) only kill voices if the respective mode really
771     changed
772 persson 951
773 schoenebeck 1244 * LSCP server:
774     - fixed compile time error for old Bison versions
775     (i.e. v1.28 found on MacOS 10.4, patch by Toshi Nagata)
776 schoenebeck 1245 - parser now supports extended ASCII character set
777     (up to ASCII code 255, i.e. includes now umlauts and accents)
778     - filename arguments in LSCP commands now allow to use escape
779     sequences, that is directly literal as one of: \', \", \\, \n, \r,
780     \f, \t, \v, or as octal ASCII code value like \132, or as hex ASCII
781     code value like \xf2) (fixes bug #24)
782 schoenebeck 1389 - the following LSCP commands now also support escape sequences for at
783     least one of their text-based parameters (i.e. name, description):
784     "ADD MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP", "MAP MIDI_INSTRUMENT",
785     "SET MIDI_INSTRUMENT_MAP NAME", "SET FX_SEND NAME", "CREATE FX_SEND",
786     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY NAME",
787     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORY DESCRIPTION", "SET DB_INSTRUMENT NAME",
788     "SET DB_INSTRUMENT DESCRIPTION", "FIND DB_INSTRUMENTS",
789     "FIND DB_INSTRUMENT_DIRECTORIES"
790 schoenebeck 1252 - returns verbose syntax errors (line and column where syntax error
791     occured, the unexpected character and the actually expected, possible
792     character(s), the latter only if less than 5 possibilities)
793 persson 1349 - made sure that LSCP syntax is not affected by gigedit locale
794     settings
795 schoenebeck 1379 - bugfix regarding strings parameter lists: all comma separated lists
796     of strings were treated as being one string containing commas
797     (fixes #57)
798 schoenebeck 1244
799 iliev 959 * Bug fixes:
800     - fixed crash occurring on certain LSCP scripts (Bug 39)
801 persson 1038 - another thread safety fix for lscp "load engine" and "set
802     channel audio output device"
803 iliev 1283 - fixed a crash which occurs when reassigning the same engine
804     on a sampler channel with connected MIDI device
805 iliev 1295 - fixed a crash which occurs when changing the number of ports of a MIDI
806     device connected to a sampler channel to number less then or equal
807     to the index of the port to which the sampler channel is connected.
808 iliev 1296 - The previous bindings were not been disconnected when altering
809     the ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS parameter. Introduced a NONE keyword for
810     unsubscribing from all bindings (e.g. ALSA_SEQ_BINDINGS=NONE).
811 iliev 1297 - The active stream/voice count statistic was incorrect.
812 iliev 1298 - notification events were not been sent for some sampler
813     channel changes
814 iliev 1305 - added default min and max values to restrict the number of allowed
815     audio output channels and MIDI input ports
816 iliev 1306 - the connection to the PCM interface is now closed when destroying
817     an audio output device
818 schoenebeck 1332 - files with slash in their path or filename could not be loaded
819 iliev 959
820 schoenebeck 1221 * test cases:
821     - updated and fixed (haven't been touched in a while)
822    
823 schoenebeck 937 Version 0.4.0 (24 November 2006)
824 persson 696
825 schoenebeck 697 * packaging changes:
826 capela 868 - changed deprecated copyright attribute to license; added ldconfig
827     to post-(un)install steps; added devel package for liblinuxsampler;
828     to linuxsampler.spec (RPM)
829 schoenebeck 697 - install necessary development header files for allowing 3rd party
830     applications to link against liblinuxsampler
831     - liblinuxsampler's API documentation can be generated with 'make docs'
832     (Doxygen required)
833 schoenebeck 715 - added benchmark to automatically detect the best triangle LFO
834     implementation (currently either an integer math solution or a
835     di-harmonic approximation), automatic detection can be overriden
836     with --enable-signed-triang-algo=x and --enable-unsigned-triang-algo=x
837     configure script argument though (mandatory for cross-compilation)
838 schoenebeck 829 - do not automatically pick optimized gcc flags if the user already
839     provided some on his own (as CXXFLAGS)
840 schoenebeck 849 - added compile time option to disable processing of All-Notes-Off MIDI
841     messages
842 schoenebeck 852 - added compile time options to allow disabling the various audio and
843     MIDI drivers
844 schoenebeck 909 - fixed automatic GCC CPU switch detection on PPC
845     (patch by Ebrahim Mayat)
846 schoenebeck 697
847 persson 696 * Gigasampler format engine:
848 schoenebeck 738 - extensive synthesis optimization
849     (reimplementation of EGs and LFO(s), removed synthesis parameter
850     prerendering and the synthesis parameter matrix in general, splitting
851     each audio fragment into subfragments now where each subfragment uses
852 persson 830 constant pitch and filter coefficients. The volume coefficient is
853     linearly interpolated inside a subfragment, unless
854     --disable-interpolate-volume is set.)
855 persson 696 - fine tuning of the EG modulation parameters
856 persson 729 - improved filter cutoff calculation by adding support for the
857     following gig parameters: Cutoff freq (used when no cutoff
858     controller is defined), Control invert, Minimum cutoff, Velocity
859 persson 791 curve and Velocity range. The keyboard tracking now scales
860     cutoff frequency instead of resonance.
861 persson 877 - added support for gig parameter Resonance.
862 schoenebeck 775 - fixed bug in sysex handling (patch by Juan Linietsky)
863 schoenebeck 781 - added global volume attenuation of -9 dB (0.35f) to prevent clipping
864     which can be overridden with --enable-global-attenuation
865 persson 783 - EG fixes: made the length of "attack hold" stage more
866     accurate. Release stage can now start before attack stage
867 persson 797 ends. Cancel release didn't work when sustain was zero. Attack
868     time now has a minimal value to prevent clicks.
869 persson 799 - fixed pitch changes larger than one octave
870 schoenebeck 829 - fixed EG3 (pitch envelope) synthesis which was neutral all the time
871     - implemented portamento mode and solo mode (a.k.a 'mono mode'):
872     all modes can be altered via standard GM messages, that is CC5 for
873     altering portamento time, CC65 for enabling / disabling portamento
874     mode, CC126 for enabling solo mode and CC127 for disabling solo mode
875 persson 832 - fine tuning of the curves for volume (CC7), pan (CC10 and gig
876     parameter) and crossfade
877 persson 831 - added support for the "attenuation controller threshold" gig
878     parameter
879 persson 832 - added smoothing of volume changes caused by control change
880     messages
881 persson 865 - sample loop parameters are now taken from the DimensionRegion
882     instead of the wave chunk
883     - fixed keyswitching for v3 gigs with a number of keyswitch splits
884     not equal to a power of two
885 persson 877 - reimplementation of the filter algorithm. The new filter is more
886     accurate and supports all gig filter types, including bandreject
887     and lowpass turbo.
888 persson 903 - real support for 24 bit samples - samples are not truncated to
889     16 bits anymore
890     - support for aftertouch (channel pressure, not polyphonic
891     aftertouch)
892 persson 922 - LFO1 behaviour fixed (dampening from max volume instead of
893     amplifying from 0)
894 persson 696
895 schoenebeck 711 * LSCP server:
896     - fixed application exit on broken pipe error (fixes bug #20)
897 iliev 793 - fixed the notification messages delay due to lack of
898     network activity (fixes bug #26)
899 schoenebeck 826 - fixed parser bug which occured on space(s) within device parameters
900     (e.g. "SET AUDIO_OUTPUT_CHANNEL_PARAMETER 0 0 SOMEPARAM='foo bar'")
901 schoenebeck 711
902 schoenebeck 838 * audio driver:
903     - added aRts audio output driver (by no means RT safe)
904    
905 schoenebeck 775 * MIDI driver:
906     - fixed legacy sysex code which caused dispatching of MIDI SysEx
907     messages several times instead of once
908 schoenebeck 906 - API extension for MIDI drivers which already supply exact time stamps
909     for events (i.e. for offline rendering based MIDI drivers)
910 persson 922 - added checks for bad MIDI data
911 schoenebeck 775
912 schoenebeck 900 * linuxsampler application:
913     - show available sampler engine types on startup
914    
915 schoenebeck 705 * general changes:
916     - support for muting sampler channels and solo mode of the same, two new
917     LSCP commands ("SET CHANNEL MUTE" and "SET CHANNEL SOLO") and two new
918     fields ("MUTE" and "SOLO") for command "GET CHANNEL INFO" were
919     introduced for this, the behavior is the same like on a mixer console
920 iliev 716 (patch by Grigor Iliev, a bit adjusted). Also added configure option
921     --enable-process-muted-channels which can be used to enable the
922     processing of muted channels.
923 iliev 777 - support for sostenuto pedal
924 iliev 779 - support for monitoring the total number of active voices
925 iliev 778 (new LSCP commands: GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, GET TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT_MAX,
926     SUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT, UNSUBSCRIBE TOTAL_VOICE_COUNT)
927 persson 835 - fixed some memory management errors
928 persson 841 - fixed some concurrency problems that could lead to crashes when
929     LSCP commands were executed
930 schoenebeck 925 - fixed crash when instrument loading failed previously on the same
931     sampler channel (fixes bug #36)
932 schoenebeck 705
933 schoenebeck 692 Version 0.3.3 (15 July 2005)
934 schoenebeck 686
935     * packaging changes:
936     - fixed compilation with gcc 4.0
937    
938 schoenebeck 687 * Gigasampler format engine:
939     - LFO preprocessing was performed even though the respective LFO was
940     disabled by the instrument patch (minor efficiency fix)
941 schoenebeck 688 - if period time of chosen audio device is too small (< MIN_RELEASE_TIME)
942     for volume ramp downs in the same fragment (needed for current voice
943     stealing implementation) then simply inform the user with a warning
944     about possible click sounds and reduce the volume ramp down
945     appropriately instead of cancelling the audio device connection
946 schoenebeck 687
947 schoenebeck 677 Version 0.3.2 (24 June 2005)
948 schoenebeck 609
949     * packaging changes:
950     - updated autotools build files to compile on OS X
951     (conditional compilation of CoreMIDI and MidiShare drivers)
952 schoenebeck 617 - hand-crafted assembly optimization code can be disabled with
953     './configure --disable-asm' (definitely not recommended)
954 schoenebeck 654 - fixed 'make dist' rule to include all necessary files
955     - require automake (>= 1.5) for 'make -f Makefile.cvs'
956     (due to 'dist-bzip2' automake option)
957 schoenebeck 649
958     * Gigasampler format engine:
959     - support for the gig parameters for "release velocity response" curves
960     - fine tuning of the EGADSR envelope
961     - volume of release triggered samples now depends on note-on velocity,
962     note length and gig parameter "release trigger decay" instead of
963     note-off velocity.
964 schoenebeck 663 - revised voice stealing
965     (fixes crash and endless loop caused by voice stealing)
966 schoenebeck 659 - don't reset scale tuning on instrument or audio output device change
967 schoenebeck 668 - handle key group conflicts right at the beginning of each fragment
968     instead of when the respective voice is actually launched
969     (fixes undefined behavior if stolen voices belonged to a key group -
970     this case was followed by a "killed voice survived" error message)
971 schoenebeck 669 - fixed minor issue with null/silence samples
972     (those stole voices even though they don't need a voice at all which
973     resulted in "voice stealing didn't work out" messages)
974 schoenebeck 670 - don't reset volume, pan, pitch and MIDI controller values on
975     instrument or audio output device change
976 schoenebeck 654
977 schoenebeck 620 * LSCP server:
978 schoenebeck 654 - fixed some crashes (patch by Grigor Iliev, fixes #19)
979 schoenebeck 660 - fixed LSCP event "CHANNEL_INFO" notification
980 schoenebeck 670 (e.g. did not notify on volume changes or MIDI program change events)
981 schoenebeck 609
982 schoenebeck 668 * linuxsampler application:
983     - added command line parameters --lscp-addr and --lscp-port to override
984     default IP address and port of LSCP server
985    
986 schoenebeck 579 Version 0.3.1 (24 May 2005)
987    
988     * initial release
