158 capela 2488 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
159 capela 2112
160 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
161 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
162     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
163     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
164 capela 2108
165 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
166    
167 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has

171 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
172    
173 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-

182     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
183    
184 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
185     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
186    
187 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
188     a menu separator has been added.
189 capela 2036
190 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
191     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
192    
193     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
194     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
195     lame green solid background :).

198 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
199

209 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
210    
211 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
212     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
213     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
214     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
215     a sampler the next time.
216 schoenebeck 1803
217 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.

220    
221 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
222     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
223     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
224     (default none).
225 capela 1749
226 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
227     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
228     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
229    
230 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
231     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
232     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
233     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
234 capela 1740
235 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
236     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
237

239     screwed.
240    
241 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
242     e.g. by other frontends.
243 schoenebeck 1702
244 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
245     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
246     (fixes segfault on device changes)
247    
248 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
249     "View" main menu.
250 schoenebeck 1698
251 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
252    
253 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
254    
255 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
256     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
257 capela 1637
258 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
259     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
260 schoenebeck 1626
261    
262 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
263 schoenebeck 1461
264 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
265     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
266     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
267     default.
268 schoenebeck 1527
269 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
270     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
271    
272 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
273     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
274    
275 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
276     creating a new sampler channel.
277    
278     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
279    
280 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
281     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
282     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
283     first time).
284    
285 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
286     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
287 schoenebeck 1486
288 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
289    
290 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles

294 schoenebeck 1461
295    
296 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
297 capela 1234
298 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
299     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
300 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
301     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
302 capela 1394
303 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
304     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
305     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
306     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
307    
308 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
309     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
310     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
311    
312 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
313    
314    
315 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
316 schoenebeck 736
317 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
318     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
319     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
320    
321 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
322    
323 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
324     the session state, only at code-level.
325 capela 1036
326 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
327 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
328 capela 1016
329 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
330     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
331     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
332     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
333     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
334     corrected some tooltip text strings.
335 capela 971
336 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
337     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
338     window managers.
339    
340 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
341 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
342     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
343     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
344 capela 957
345 capela 969 * GPL address update.
346 capela 920
347    
348 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?

351     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
352    
353 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
354    
355 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
356     installation paths have been added to configure command
357     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
358    
359 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
360     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
361     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
362     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
363     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
364    
365     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
366     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
367     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
368     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
369    
370 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
371    
372 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
373 capela 3044 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
374 capela 758
375 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
376     title name prefix.
377    
378 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
379     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
380     generated at configure time.
381    
382 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
383     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
384     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
385 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
386    
387 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
388    
389 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was

394 capela 653
395 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
396 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
397     one, while on qjackctl).
398 capela 653
399 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
400     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
401 capela 661

406 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
407 capela 619
408 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
409 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
410 capela 590 info updates.
411 capela 586
412 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
413     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
414     device dialog.
415 capela 586
416 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
417    
418 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
419     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
420     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
421 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
422 capela 590
423 capela 600
424 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
425 schoenebeck 519
426 capela 3044 * Device configuration is now complete.
427 capela 426
428 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention

439 capela 526
440    
441 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
442 capela 327
443 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
444     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
445     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
446     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
447    
448 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
449     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
450     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
451

461 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
462     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files

479 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
480 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count

482     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.

528 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
529     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
530     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
531     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
532    
533 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
534     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
