1 capela 491 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 capela 109 ------------------------------------------
3    
4     ChangeLog
5    
6 schoenebeck 1626 CVS HEAD
7    
8 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
9     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
10     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
11     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
12     a sampler the next time.
13 schoenebeck 1803
14 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
15    
16 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
17    
18 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
19     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
20     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
21     (default none).
22 capela 1749
23 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
24     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
25     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
26    
27 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
28     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
29     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
30     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
31 capela 1740
32 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
33     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
34    
35 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
36     screwed.
37    
38 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
39     e.g. by other frontends.
40 schoenebeck 1702
41 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
42     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
43     (fixes segfault on device changes)
44    
45 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
46     "View" main menu.
47 schoenebeck 1698
48 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
49    
50 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
51    
52 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
53     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
54 capela 1637
55 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
56     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
57 schoenebeck 1626
58    
59 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
60 schoenebeck 1461
61 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
62     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
63     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
64     default.
65 schoenebeck 1527
66 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
67     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
68    
69 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
70     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
71    
72 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
73     creating a new sampler channel.
74    
75     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
76    
77 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
78     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
79     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
80     first time).
81    
82 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
83     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
84 schoenebeck 1486
85 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
86    
87 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
88     under win32.
89 schoenebeck 1493
90 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
91 schoenebeck 1461
92    
93 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
94 capela 1234
95 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
96     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
97 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
98     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
99 capela 1394
100 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
101     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
102     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
103     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
104    
105 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
106     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
107     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
108    
109 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
110    
111    
112 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
113 schoenebeck 736
114 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
115     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
116     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
117    
118 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
119    
120 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
121     the session state, only at code-level.
122 capela 1036
123 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
124 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
125 capela 1016
126 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
127     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
128     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
129     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
130     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
131     corrected some tooltip text strings.
132 capela 971
133 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
134     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
135     window managers.
136    
137 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
138 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
139     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
140     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
141 capela 957
142 capela 969 * GPL address update.
143 capela 920
144    
145 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
146    
147     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
148     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
149    
150 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
151    
152 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
153     installation paths have been added to configure command
154     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
155    
156 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
157     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
158     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
159     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
160     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
161    
162     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
163     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
164     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
165     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
166    
167 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
168    
169 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
170     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
171    
172 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
173     title name prefix.
174    
175 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
176     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
177     generated at configure time.
178    
179 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
180     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
181     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
182 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
183    
184 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
185    
186 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
187     compiled with -no-stl.
188    
189    
190 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
191 capela 653
192 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
193 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
194     one, while on qjackctl).
195 capela 653
196 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
197     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
198 capela 661
199 capela 662
200 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
201 capela 586
202 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
203 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
204 capela 619
205 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
206 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
207 capela 590 info updates.
208 capela 586
209 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
210     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
211     device dialog.
212 capela 586
213 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
214    
215 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
216     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
217     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
218 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
219 capela 590
220 capela 600
221 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
222 schoenebeck 519
223 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
224 capela 426
225 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
226 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
227 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
228 capela 567
229 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
230 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
231 capela 426
232 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
233 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
234 capela 567
235 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
236 capela 526
237    
238 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
239 capela 327
240 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
241     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
242     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
243     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
244    
245 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
246     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
247     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
248    
249     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
250     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
251    
252 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
253    
254     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
255     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
256     change information are now also posted to messages window.
257    
258 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
259     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
260     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
261     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
262    
263 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
264     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
265 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
266    
267 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
268     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
269     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
270     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
271    
272     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
273 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
274     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
275    
276 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
277 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
278 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
279     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
280 capela 327
281    
282 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
283 capela 115
284 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
285     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
286     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
287    
288 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
289     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
290     following common user-interface guidelines.
291    
292 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
293     control structures.
294    
295 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
296    
297     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
298     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
299 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
300 capela 255
301     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
302 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
303 capela 255
304     * Minor configure fixes.
305    
306    
307     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
308    
309 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
310    
311 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
312     and on session file save.
313 capela 145
314 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
315     on create time.
316 capela 161
317 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
318    
319    
320 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
321    
322 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
323     over the empty workspace area.
324 capela 130
325 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
326     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
327     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
328     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
329    
330 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
331     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
332    
333     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
334     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
335    
336 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
337     each sampler channel strip.
338 capela 115
339 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
340     qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
341    
342     * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
343 capela 115 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
344    
345 capela 118 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
346     new sampler channel strip.
347 capela 115
348     * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
349     suggested in the following lines:
350    
351     SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
352     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
353     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
354     LOAD ENGINE ...
355     LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
356     SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
357    
358    
359 capela 109 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
