5    
6 schoenebeck 1626 CVS HEAD
7    
8 schoenebeck 1702 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed e.g. by
9     other frontends.
10    
11 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
12     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
13     (fixes segfault on device changes)
14    
15 schoenebeck 1698 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the "View"
16     main menu.
17    
18 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
19    
20 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
21    
22 capela 1637 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
23     particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
24    
25 schoenebeck 1626 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
26     whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
27    
28    
29 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
30 schoenebeck 1461
31 schoenebeck 1527 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
32     very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
33     name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
34    
35 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
36     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
37    
38 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
39     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
40    
41 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
42     creating a new sampler channel.
43    
44     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
45    
46 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
47     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
48     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
49     first time).
50    
51 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
52     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
53 schoenebeck 1486
54 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
55    
56 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
57     under win32.
58 schoenebeck 1493
59 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
60 schoenebeck 1461
61    
62 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
63 capela 1234
64 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
65     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
66 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
67     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
68 capela 1394
69 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
70     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
71     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
72     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
73    
74 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
75     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
76     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
77    
78 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
79    
80    
81 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
82 schoenebeck 736
83 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
84     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
85     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
86    
87 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
88    
89 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
90     the session state, only at code-level.
91 capela 1036
92 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
93 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
94 capela 1016
95 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
96     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
97     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
98     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
99     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
100     corrected some tooltip text strings.
101 capela 971
102 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
103     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
104     window managers.
105    
106 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
107 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
108     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
109     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
110 capela 957
111 capela 969 * GPL address update.
112 capela 920
113    
114 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
115    
116     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
117     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
118    
119 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
120    
121 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
122     installation paths have been added to configure command
123     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
124    
125 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
126     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
127     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
128     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
129     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
130    
131     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
132     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
133     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
134     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
135    
136 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
137    
138 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
139     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
140    
141 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
142     title name prefix.
143    
144 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
145     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
146     generated at configure time.
147    
148 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
149     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
150     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
151 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
152    
153 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
154    
155 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
156     compiled with -no-stl.
157    
158    
159 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
160 capela 653
161 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
162 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
163     one, while on qjackctl).
164 capela 653
165 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
166     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
167 capela 661
168 capela 662
169 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
170 capela 586
171 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
172 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
173 capela 619
174 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
175 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
176 capela 590 info updates.
177 capela 586
178 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
179     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
180     device dialog.
181 capela 586
182 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
183    
184 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
185     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
186     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
187 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
188 capela 590
189 capela 600
190 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
191 schoenebeck 519
192 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
193 capela 426
194 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
195 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
196 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
197 capela 567
198 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
199 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
200 capela 426
201 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
202 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
203 capela 567
204 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
205 capela 526
206    
207 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
208 capela 327
209 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
210     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
211     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
212     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
213    
214 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
215     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
216     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
217    
218     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
219     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
220    
221 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
222    
223     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
224     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
225     change information are now also posted to messages window.
226    
227 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
228     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
229     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
230     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
231    
232 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
233     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
234 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
235    
236 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
237     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
238     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
239     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
240    
241     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
242 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
243     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
244    
245 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
246 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
247 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
248     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
249 capela 327
250    
251 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
252 capela 115
253 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
254     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
255     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
256    
257 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
258     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
259     following common user-interface guidelines.
260    
261 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
262     control structures.
263    
264 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
265    
266     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
267     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
268 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
269 capela 255
270     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
271 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
272 capela 255
273     * Minor configure fixes.
274    
275    
276     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
277    
278 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
279    
280 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
281     and on session file save.
282 capela 145
283 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
284     on create time.
285 capela 161
286 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
287    
288    
289 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
290    
291 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
292     over the empty workspace area.
293 capela 130
294 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
295     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
296     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
297     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
298    
299 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
300     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
301    
302     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
303     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
304    
305 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
306     each sampler channel strip.
307 capela 115
308 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
309     qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
310    
311     * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
312 capela 115 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
313    
314 capela 118 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
315     new sampler channel strip.
316 capela 115
317     * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
318     suggested in the following lines:
319    
320     SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
321     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
322     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
323     LOAD ENGINE ...
324     LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
325     SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
326    
327    
328 capela 109 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
