6 capela 2718
7 capela 2681 GIT HEAD
8 capela 2563
9 capela 2724 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
10    
11 capela 2722 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
12     of the nagging warning/error message boxes. (EXPERIMENTAL)
13 capela 2724
14 capela 2718 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
15    
16     * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
17     stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
18    
19 capela 2681 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
20     main toolbar orientation.
21    
22 capela 2669 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
23     as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available. (EXPERIMENTAL)
24    
25 capela 2660 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new includedir.
26    
27 capela 2642 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
28     debian, thanks).
29    
30 capela 2631 * Translations install directory change. (EXPERIMENTAL)

32 capela 2563 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
33     (EXPERIMENTAL)
34    
35 schoenebeck 2569 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when

37     instruments of the same file.
38 capela 2563
39 schoenebeck 2591 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new libdir
40     (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
41 schoenebeck 2569
42 schoenebeck 2591
43 capela 2488 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
44 capela 2028
45 capela 2545 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
46    
47 capela 2480 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
48    
49 capela 2456 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

67 capela 2271 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
68 persson 2144
69     * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
70     and make.
71    
72 capela 2116 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
73     as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
74     Debian 6.
75    
76 capela 2112 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
77 capela 2488 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
78 capela 2112
79 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
80 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
81     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
82     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
83 capela 2108
84 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
85    
86 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
87     been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
88     wrong main widget hidden state.
89    
90 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
91    
92 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
93     traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
94     option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
95     targets (--enable-debug).
96    
97 capela 2064 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
98    
99 capela 2059 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
100     now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
101     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
102    
103 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
104     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
105    
106 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
107     a menu separator has been added.
108 capela 2036
109 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
110     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
111    
112     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
113     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
114     lame green solid background :).
115    
116 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
117 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
118    
119 capela 2036 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
120 capela 2028
121    
122 capela 1964 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
123 schoenebeck 1626
124 capela 1873 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
125     brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
126     ever may follow ;)
127    
128 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
129    
130 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
131     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
132     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
133     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
134     a sampler the next time.
135 schoenebeck 1803
136 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
137    
138 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
139    
140 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
141     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
142     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
143     (default none).
144 capela 1749
145 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
146     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
147     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
148    
149 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
150     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
151     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
152     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
153 capela 1740
154 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
155     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
156    
157 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
158     screwed.
159    
160 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
161     e.g. by other frontends.
162 schoenebeck 1702
163 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
164     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
165     (fixes segfault on device changes)
166    
167 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
168     "View" main menu.
169 schoenebeck 1698
170 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
171    
172 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
173    
174 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
175     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
176 capela 1637
177 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
178     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
179 schoenebeck 1626
180    
181 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
182 schoenebeck 1461
183 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
184     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
185     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
186     default.
187 schoenebeck 1527
188 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
189     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
190

192     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
193    
194 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
195     creating a new sampler channel.
196    
197     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
198    
199 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
200     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
201     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
202     first time).
203    
204 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
205     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
206 schoenebeck 1486
207 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
208    
209 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
210     under win32.
211 schoenebeck 1493
212 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
213 schoenebeck 1461
214    
215 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
216 capela 1234
217 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
218     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
219 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
220     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
221 capela 1394
222 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
223     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
224     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
225     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
226    
227 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
228     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
229     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
230    
231 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
232    
233    
234 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
235 schoenebeck 736
236 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
237     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
238     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
239    
240 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
241    
242 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
243     the session state, only at code-level.
244 capela 1036
245 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
246 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
247 capela 1016
248 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
249     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
250     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
251     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
252     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
253     corrected some tooltip text strings.
254 capela 971
255 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
256     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
257     window managers.
258    
259 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
260 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
261     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
262     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
263 capela 957
264 capela 969 * GPL address update.
265 capela 920
266    
267 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
268    
269     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
270     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
271    
272 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
273    
274 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
275     installation paths have been added to configure command
276     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
277    
278 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
279     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
280     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
281     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
282     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
283    
284     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
285     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
286     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
287     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
288    
289 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
290    
291 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
292     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
293    
294 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
295     title name prefix.
296    
297 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
298     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
299     generated at configure time.
300    
301 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
302     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
303     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
304 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
305    
306 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
307    
308 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
309     compiled with -no-stl.
310    
311

313 capela 653
314 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
315 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
316     one, while on qjackctl).
317 capela 653
318 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
319     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
320 capela 661
321 capela 662
322 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
323 capela 586
324 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
325 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
326 capela 619
327 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
328 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
329 capela 590 info updates.
330 capela 586
331 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
332     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
333     device dialog.
334 capela 586
335 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
336    
337 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
338     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
339     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
340 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
341 capela 590
342 capela 600
343 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
344 schoenebeck 519
345 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
346 capela 426
347 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
348 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
349 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
350 capela 567
351 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
352 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
353 capela 426
354 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
355 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
356 capela 567
357 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
358 capela 526
359    
360 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
361 capela 327
362 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
363     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
364     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
365     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
366    
367 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
368     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
369     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
370    
371     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
372     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
373    
374 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
375    
376     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
377     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
378     change information are now also posted to messages window.
379    
380 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
381     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
382     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
383     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
384    
385 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
386     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
387 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
388    
389 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
390     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
391     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
392     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
393    
394     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
395 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
396     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
397    
398 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
399 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
400 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
401     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
402 capela 327
403    
404 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
405 capela 115
406 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
407     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
408     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
409    
410 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
411     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
412     following common user-interface guidelines.
413    
414 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
415     control structures.
416    
417 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
418    
419     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
420     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
421 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
422 capela 255
423     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
424 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
425 capela 255
426     * Minor configure fixes.
427    
428    
429     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
430    
431 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
432    
433 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
434     and on session file save.
435 capela 145
436 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
437     on create time.
438 capela 161
439 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
440    
441    
442 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
443    
444 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
445     over the empty workspace area.
446 capela 130
447 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
448     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
449     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
450     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
451    
452 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
453     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
454    
455     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
456     increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
457    
458 capela 118 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
459     each sampler channel strip.
460 capela 115
461 capela 118 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
