4     ChangeLog
5    
6 capela 2038 SVN TRUNK
7 capela 2028
8 capela 2284 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
9     configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
10 capela 2282
11 capela 2271 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
12 persson 2210
13 capela 2271 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
14 persson 2210
15 capela 2181 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
16    
17 capela 2271 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
18 persson 2144
19     * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
20     and make.
21    
22 capela 2116 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
23     as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
24     Debian 6.
25    
26 capela 2112 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
27     into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
28    
29 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
30 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
31     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
32     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
33 capela 2108
34 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
35    
36 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
37     been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
38     wrong main widget hidden state.
39    
40 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
41    
42 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
43     traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
44     option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
45     targets (--enable-debug).
46    
47 capela 2064 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
48    
49 capela 2059 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
50     now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
51     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
52    
53 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
54     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
55    
56 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
57     a menu separator has been added.
58 capela 2036
59 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
60     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
61    
62     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
63     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
64     lame green solid background :).
65    
66 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
67 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
68    
69 capela 2036 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
70 capela 2028
71    
72 capela 1964 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
73 schoenebeck 1626
74 capela 1873 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
75     brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
76     ever may follow ;)
77    
78 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
79    
80 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
81     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
82     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
83     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
84     a sampler the next time.
85 schoenebeck 1803
86 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
87    
88 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
89    
90 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
91     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
92     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
93     (default none).
94 capela 1749
95 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
96     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
97     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
98    
99 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
100     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
101     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
102     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
103 capela 1740
104 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
105     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
106    
107 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
108     screwed.
109    
110 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
111     e.g. by other frontends.
112 schoenebeck 1702
113 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
114     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
115     (fixes segfault on device changes)
116    
117 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
118     "View" main menu.
119 schoenebeck 1698
120 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
121    
122 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
123    
124 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
125     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
126 capela 1637
127 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
128     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
129 schoenebeck 1626
130    
131 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
132 schoenebeck 1461
133 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
134     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
135     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
136     default.
137 schoenebeck 1527
138 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
139     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
140    
141 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
142     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
143    
144 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
145     creating a new sampler channel.
146    
147     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
148    
149 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
150     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
151     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
152     first time).
153    
154 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
155     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
156 schoenebeck 1486
157 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
158    
159 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
160     under win32.
161 schoenebeck 1493
162 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
163 schoenebeck 1461
164    
165 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
166 capela 1234
167 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
168     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
169 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
170     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
171 capela 1394
172 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
173     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
174     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
175     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
176    
177 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
178     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
179     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
180    
181 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
182    
183    
184 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
185 schoenebeck 736
186 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
187     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
188     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
189    
190 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
191    
192 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
193     the session state, only at code-level.
194 capela 1036
195 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
196 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
197 capela 1016
198 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
199     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
200     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
201     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
202     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
203     corrected some tooltip text strings.
204 capela 971
205 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
206     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
207     window managers.
208    
209 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
210 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
211     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
212     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
213 capela 957
214 capela 969 * GPL address update.
215 capela 920
216    
217 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
218    
219     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
220     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
221    
222 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
223    
224 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
225     installation paths have been added to configure command
226     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
227    
228 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
229     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
230     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
231     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
232     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
233    
234     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
235     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
236     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
237     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
238    
239 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
240    
241 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
242     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
243    
244 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
245     title name prefix.
246    
247 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
248     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
249     generated at configure time.
250    
251 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
252     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
253     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
254 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
255    
256 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
257    
258 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
259     compiled with -no-stl.
260    
261    
262 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
263 capela 653
264 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
265 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
266     one, while on qjackctl).
267 capela 653
268 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
269     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
270 capela 661
271 capela 662
272 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
273 capela 586
274 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
275 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
276 capela 619
277 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
278 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
279 capela 590 info updates.
280 capela 586
281 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
282     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
283     device dialog.
284 capela 586
285 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
286    
287 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
288     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
289     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
290 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
291 capela 590
292 capela 600
293 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
294 schoenebeck 519
295 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
296 capela 426
297 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
298 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
299 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
300 capela 567
301 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
302 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
303 capela 426
304 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
305 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
306 capela 567
307 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
308 capela 526
309    
310 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
311 capela 327
312 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
313     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
314     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
315     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
316    
317 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
318     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
319     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
320    
321     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
322     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
323    
324 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
325    
326     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
327     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
328     change information are now also posted to messages window.
329    
330 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
331     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
332     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
333     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
334    
335 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
336     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
337 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
338    
339 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
340     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
341     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
342     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
343    
344     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
345 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
346     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
347    
348 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
349 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
350 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
351     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
352 capela 327
353    
354 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
355 capela 115
356 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
357     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
358     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
359    
360 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
361     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
362     following common user-interface guidelines.
363    
364 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
365     control structures.
366    
367 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
368    
369     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
370     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
371 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
372 capela 255
373     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
374 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
375 capela 255
376     * Minor configure fixes.
377    
378    
379     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
380    
381 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
382    
383 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
384     and on session file save.
385 capela 145
386 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
387     on create time.
388 capela 161
389 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
390    
391    
392 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
393    
394 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
395     over the empty workspace area.
396 capela 130
397 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
398     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
399     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
400     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
401    
402 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
403     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
404    
405     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
406     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
407    
408 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
409     each sampler channel strip.
410 capela 115
411 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
412     qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
413    
414     * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
415 capela 115 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
416    
417 capela 118 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
418     new sampler channel strip.
419 capela 115
420     * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
421     suggested in the following lines:
422    
423     SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
424     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
425     SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
426     LOAD ENGINE ...
427     LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
428     SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
429    
430
