125     and make.
126    
127 capela 2116 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
128     as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
129     Debian 6.
130    
131 capela 2112 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
132 capela 2488 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
133 capela 2112
134 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
135 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
136     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
137     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
138 capela 2108
139 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
140    
141 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
142     been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
143     wrong main widget hidden state.
144    
145 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
146    
147 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-

150     targets (--enable-debug).
151    
152 capela 2064 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
153    
154 capela 2059 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
155     now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
156     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
157    
158 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
159     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
160    
161 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
162     a menu separator has been added.
163 capela 2036
164 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
165     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
166    
167     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
168     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
169     lame green solid background :).
170    
171 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
172 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
173

178 schoenebeck 1626
179 capela 1873 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
180     brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
181     ever may follow ;)
182    
183 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
184    
185 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
186     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
187     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
188     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
189     a sampler the next time.
190 schoenebeck 1803
191 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
192    
193 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
194    
195 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
196     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
197     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
198     (default none).
199 capela 1749
200 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
201     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
202     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
203    
204 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
205     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
206     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
207     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
208 capela 1740
209 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
210     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
211    
212 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
213     screwed.
214    
215 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
216     e.g. by other frontends.
217 schoenebeck 1702
218 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
219     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
220     (fixes segfault on device changes)
221    
222 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
223     "View" main menu.
224 schoenebeck 1698
225 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
226    
227 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
228    
229 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
230     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
231 capela 1637
232 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
233     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
234 schoenebeck 1626
235    
236 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
237 schoenebeck 1461
238 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
239     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
240     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
241     default.
242 schoenebeck 1527
243 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
244     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
245    
246 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
247     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
248    
249 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
250     creating a new sampler channel.
251    
252     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
253    
254 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
255     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
256     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
257     first time).
258    
259 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
260     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
261 schoenebeck 1486
262 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
263    
264 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
265     under win32.
266 schoenebeck 1493
267 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
268 schoenebeck 1461
269    
270 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
271 capela 1234
272 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
273     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
274 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
275     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
276 capela 1394
277 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
278     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
279     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
280     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
281    
282 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
283     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
284     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
285    
286 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
287    
288    
289 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
290 schoenebeck 736
291 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
292     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
293     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
294    
295 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
296    
297 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
298     the session state, only at code-level.
299 capela 1036
300 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
301 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
302 capela 1016
303 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
304     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
305     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
306     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
307     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
308     corrected some tooltip text strings.
309 capela 971
310 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
311     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
312     window managers.
313    
314 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
315 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
316     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
317     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
318 capela 957
319 capela 969 * GPL address update.
320 capela 920
321    
322 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
323    
324     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
325     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
326    
327 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
328    
329 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
330     installation paths have been added to configure command
331     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
332    
333 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
334     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
335     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
336     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
337     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
338    
339     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
340     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
341     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
342     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
343    
344 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
345    
346 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
347 capela 3044 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
348 capela 758
349 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
350     title name prefix.
351    
352 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
353     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
354     generated at configure time.
355    
356 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
357     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
358     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
359 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
360    
361 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
362    
363 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
364     compiled with -no-stl.
365    
366    
367 capela 680 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
368 capela 653
369 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
370 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
371     one, while on qjackctl).
372 capela 653
373 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
374     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
375 capela 661
376 capela 662
377 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
378 capela 586
379 capela 619 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
380 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
381 capela 619
382 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
383 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
384 capela 590 info updates.
385 capela 586
386 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
387     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
388     device dialog.
389 capela 586
390 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
391    
392 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
393     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
394     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
395 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
396 capela 590
397 capela 600
398 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
399 schoenebeck 519
400 capela 3044 * Device configuration is now complete.
401 capela 426
402 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
403 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
404 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
405 capela 567
406 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
407 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
408 capela 426
409 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
410 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
411 capela 567
412 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
413 capela 526
414    
415 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
416 capela 327
417 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
418     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
419     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
420     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
421    
422 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
423     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
424     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
425    
426     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
427     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
428    
429 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
430    
431     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
432     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
433     change information are now also posted to messages window.
434    
435 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
436     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
437     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
438     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
439    
440 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
441     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
442 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
443    
444 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
445     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
446     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
447     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
448    
449     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
450 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
