19    
20     * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
21 capela 2874 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
22     Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
23    
24 schoenebeck 2910 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
25     auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.

116    
117 capela 2116 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
118     as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
119     Debian 6.
120    
121 capela 2112 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
122 capela 2488 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
123 capela 2112
124 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
125 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
126     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
127     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
128 capela 2108
129 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
130    
131 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
132     been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
133     wrong main widget hidden state.
134    
135 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
136    
137 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-

145     now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
146     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
147    
148 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
149     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
150    
151 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
152     a menu separator has been added.
153 capela 2036
154 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
155     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
156    
157     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
158     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
159     lame green solid background :).
160    
161 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
162 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
163

171     ever may follow ;)
172    
173 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
174    
175 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
176     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
177     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
178     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
179     a sampler the next time.
180 schoenebeck 1803
181 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
182    
183 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
184    
185 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
186     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
187     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
188     (default none).
189 capela 1749
190 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
191     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
192     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
193    
194 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
195     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
196     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
197     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
198 capela 1740
199 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
200     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
201    
202 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
203     screwed.
204    
205 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
206     e.g. by other frontends.
207 schoenebeck 1702
208 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
209     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
210     (fixes segfault on device changes)
211    
212 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
213     "View" main menu.
214 schoenebeck 1698
215 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
216    
217 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
218    
219 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
220     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
221 capela 1637
222 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
223     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
224 schoenebeck 1626
225    
226 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
227 schoenebeck 1461
228 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
229     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
230     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
231     default.
232 schoenebeck 1527
233 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
234     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
235    
236 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
237     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
238    
239 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
240     creating a new sampler channel.
241    
242     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
243    
244 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
245     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
246     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
247     first time).
248    
249 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
250     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
251 schoenebeck 1486
252 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
253    
254 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
255     under win32.
256 schoenebeck 1493
257 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
258 schoenebeck 1461
259    
260 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
261 capela 1234
262 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
263     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
264 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
265     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
266 capela 1394
267 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
268     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
269     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
270     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
271    
272 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
273     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
274     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
275    
276 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
277    
278    
279 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
280 schoenebeck 736
281 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
282     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
283     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
284    
285 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
286    
287 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
288     the session state, only at code-level.
289 capela 1036
290 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
291 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
292 capela 1016
293 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
294     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
295     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
296     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
297     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
298     corrected some tooltip text strings.
299 capela 971
300 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
301     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
302     window managers.
303    
304 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
305 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
306     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
307     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
308 capela 957
309 capela 969 * GPL address update.
310 capela 920
311    
312 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
313    
314     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
315     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
316    
317 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
318    
319 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
320     installation paths have been added to configure command
321     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
322    
323 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
324     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
325     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
326     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
327     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
328    
329     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
330     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
331     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
332     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
333    
334 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
335    
336 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
337     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
338    
339 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
340     title name prefix.
341    
342 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
343     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
344     generated at configure time.
345    
346 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
347     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
348     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
349 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
350    
351 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
352    
353 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
354     compiled with -no-stl.
355    
356    
357 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
358 capela 653
359 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
360 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
361     one, while on qjackctl).
362 capela 653
363 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
364     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
365 capela 661
366 capela 662
367 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
368 capela 586
369 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
370 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
371 capela 619
372 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
373 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
374 capela 590 info updates.
375 capela 586
376 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
377     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
378     device dialog.
379 capela 586
380 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
381    
382 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
383     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
384     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
385 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
386 capela 590
387 capela 600
388 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
389 schoenebeck 519
390 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
391 capela 426
392 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
393 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
394 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
395 capela 567
396 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
397 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
398 capela 426
399 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
400 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
401 capela 567
402 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
403 capela 526
404    
405 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
406 capela 327
407 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
408     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
409     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
410     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
411    
412 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
413     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
414     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
415    
416     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
417     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
418    
419 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
420    
421     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
422     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
423     change information are now also posted to messages window.
424    
425 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
426     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
427     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
428     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
429    
430 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
431     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
432 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
433    
434 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
435     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
436     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
437     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
438    
439     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
440 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
441     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
442    
443 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
444 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
445 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
446     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
447 capela 327
448    
449 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
