* Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
  form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie

  first time).
* Replaced Debian packaging dependency from libqt3-mt-dev to
  libqr4-dev.

7    
8 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
9     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
10     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
11     first time).
12    
13 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
14     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
15 schoenebeck 1486
16 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
17    
18 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
19     under win32.
20 schoenebeck 1493
21 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
22 schoenebeck 1461
23    
24 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
25 capela 1234
26 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
27     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
28 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
29     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
30 capela 1394
31 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
32     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
33     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
34     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
35    
36 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
37     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
38     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
39    
40 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
41    
42    
43 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
44 schoenebeck 736
45 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
46     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
47     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
48    
49 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
50    
51 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
52     the session state, only at code-level.
53 capela 1036
54 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
55 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
56 capela 1016
57 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
58     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
59     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
60     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
61     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
62     corrected some tooltip text strings.
63 capela 971
64 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
65     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
66     window managers.
67    
68 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
69 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
70     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
71     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
72 capela 957
73 capela 969 * GPL address update.
74 capela 920
75    
76 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
77    
78     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
79     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
80    
81 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
82    
83 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
84     installation paths have been added to configure command
85     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
86    
87 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
88     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
89     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
90     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
91     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
92    
93     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
94     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
95     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
96     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
97    
98 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
99    
100 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
101     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
102    
103 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
104     title name prefix.
105    
106 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
107     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
108     generated at configure time.
109    
110 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
111     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
112     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
113 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
114    
115 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
116    
117 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
118     compiled with -no-stl.
119    
120    
121 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
122 capela 653
123 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
124 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
125     one, while on qjackctl).
126 capela 653
127 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
128     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
129 capela 661

134 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
135 capela 619
136 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
137 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
138 capela 590 info updates.
139 capela 586
140 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
141     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
142     device dialog.
143 capela 586
144 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
145    
146 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
147     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
148     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
149 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
150 capela 590
151 capela 600
152 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
153 schoenebeck 519
154 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
155 capela 426
156 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
157 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
158 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
159 capela 567
160 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
161 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
162 capela 426
163 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
164 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
165 capela 567
166 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
167 capela 526
168    
169 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
170 capela 327
171 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
172     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
173     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
174     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
175    
176 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
177     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
178     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
179    
180     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
181     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
182    
183 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
184    
185     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
186     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
187     change information are now also posted to messages window.
188    
189 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
190     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
191     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
192     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
193    
194 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
195     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
196 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
197    
198 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
199     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
200     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
201     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
202    
203     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
204 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
205     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
206    
207 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
208 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
209 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
210     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
211 capela 327
212    
213 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
214 capela 115
215 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
216     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
217     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
218    
219 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
220     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
221     following common user-interface guidelines.
222    
223 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
224     control structures.
225    
226 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
227    
228     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
229     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
230 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
231 capela 255
232     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
233 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
234 capela 255
235     * Minor configure fixes.
236    
237    
238     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
239    
240 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
241    
242 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
243     and on session file save.
244 capela 145
245 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
246     on create time.
247 capela 161
248 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
249    
250    
251 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
252    
253 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
254     over the empty workspace area.
255 capela 130
256 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
257     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
258     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
259     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
260    
261 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
262     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
263    
264     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
265     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
266    
267 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
268     each sampler channel strip.
269 capela 115
270 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
271     qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
272    
273     * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
274 capela 115 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
275    
276 capela 118 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
277     new sampler channel strip.
278 capela 115
279     * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
280     suggested in the following lines:
281    
282     SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
283     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
284     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
285     LOAD ENGINE ...
286     LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
287     SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
288    
289
