4     ChangeLog
5    
6 schoenebeck 1626 CVS HEAD
7    
8 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
9    
10 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
11    
12 capela 1637 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
13     particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
14    
15 schoenebeck 1626 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
16     whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
17    
18    
19 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
20 schoenebeck 1461
21 schoenebeck 1527 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
22     very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
23     name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
24    
25 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
26     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
27    
28 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
29     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
30    
31 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
32     creating a new sampler channel.
33    
34     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
35    
36 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
37     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
38     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
39     first time).
40    
41 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
42     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
43 schoenebeck 1486
44 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
45    
46 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
47     under win32.
48 schoenebeck 1493
49 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
50 schoenebeck 1461
51    
52 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
53 capela 1234
54 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
55     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
56 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
57     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
58 capela 1394
59 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
60     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
61     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
62     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
63    
64 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
65     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
66     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
67    
68 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
69    
70    
71 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
72 schoenebeck 736
73 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
74     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
75     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
76    
77 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
78    
79 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
80     the session state, only at code-level.
81 capela 1036
82 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
83 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
84 capela 1016
85 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
86     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
87     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
88     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
89     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
90     corrected some tooltip text strings.
91 capela 971
92 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
93     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
94     window managers.
95    
96 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
97 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
98     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
99     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
100 capela 957
101 capela 969 * GPL address update.
102 capela 920
103    
104 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
105    
106     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
107     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
108    
109 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
110    
111 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
112     installation paths have been added to configure command
113     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
114    
115 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
116     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
117     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
118     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
119     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
120    
121     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
122     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
123     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
124     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
125    
126 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
127    
128 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
129     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
130    
131 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
132     title name prefix.
133    
134 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
135     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
136     generated at configure time.
137    
138 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
139     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
140     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
141 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
142    
143 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
144    
145 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
146     compiled with -no-stl.
147    
148    
149 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
150 capela 653
151 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
152 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
153     one, while on qjackctl).
154 capela 653
155 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
156     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
157 capela 661
158 capela 662
159 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
160 capela 586
161 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
162 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
163 capela 619
164 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
165 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
166 capela 590 info updates.
167 capela 586
168 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
169     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
170     device dialog.
171 capela 586
172 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
173    
174 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
175     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
176     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
177 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
178 capela 590
179 capela 600
180 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
181 schoenebeck 519
182 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
183 capela 426
184 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
185 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
186 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
187 capela 567
188 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
189 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
190 capela 426
191 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
192 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
193 capela 567
194 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
195 capela 526
196    
197 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
198 capela 327
199 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
200     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
201     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
202     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
203    
204 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
205     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
206     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
207    
208     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
209     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
210    
211 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
212    
213     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
214     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
215     change information are now also posted to messages window.
216    
217 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
218     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
219     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
220     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
221    
222 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
223     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
224 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
225    
226 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
227     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
228     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
229     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
230    
231     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
232 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
233     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
234    
235 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
236 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
237 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
238     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
239 capela 327
240    
241 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
242 capela 115
243 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
244     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
245     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
246    
247 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
248     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
249     following common user-interface guidelines.
250    
251 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
252     control structures.
253    
254 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
255    
256     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
257     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
258 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
259 capela 255
260     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
261 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
262 capela 255
263     * Minor configure fixes.
264    
265    
266     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
267    
268 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
269    
270 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
271     and on session file save.
272 capela 145
273 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
274     on create time.
275 capela 161
276 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
277    
278    
279 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
280    
281 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
282     over the empty workspace area.
283 capela 130
284 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
285     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
286     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
287     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
288    
289 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
290     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
291    
292     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
293     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
294    
295 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
296     each sampler channel strip.
297 capela 115
298 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
299     qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
300    
301     * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
302 capela 115 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
303    
304 capela 118 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
305     new sampler channel strip.
306 capela 115
307     * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
308     suggested in the following lines:
309    
310     SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
311     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
312     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
313     LOAD ENGINE ...
314     LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
315     SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
316    
317    
318 capela 109 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
