4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
9 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
10 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
11 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
12 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
13 corrected some tooltip text strings.
14
15 * MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
16 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
17
18 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
19 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
20 window managers.
21
22 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
23 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities.
24
25 * GPL address update.
26
27
28 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
29
30 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
31 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
32
33 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
34
35 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
36 installation paths have been added to configure command
37 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
38
39 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
40 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
41 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
42 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
43 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
44
45 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
46 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
47 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
48 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
49
50 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
51
52 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
53 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
54
55 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
56 title name prefix.
57
58 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
59 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
60 generated at configure time.
61
62 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
63 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
64 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
65 argument have some effect on X11.
66
67 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
68
69 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
70 compiled with -no-stl.
71
72
73 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
74
75 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
76 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
77 one, while on qjackctl).
78
79 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
80 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
81
82
83 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
84
85 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
86 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
87
88 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
89 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
90 info updates.
91
92 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
93 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
94 device dialog.
95
96 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
97
98 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
99 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
100 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
101 Mayat, for pointing these out).
102
103
104 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
105
106 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
107
108 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
109 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
110 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
111
112 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
113 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
114
115 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
116 an instrument.
117
118 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
119
120
121 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
122
123 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
124 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
125 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
126 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
127
128 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
129 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
130 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
131
132 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
133 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
134
135 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
136
137 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
138 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
139 change information are now also posted to messages window.
140
141 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
142 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
143 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
144 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
145
146 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
147 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
148 sampler instrument file.
149
150 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
151 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
152 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
153 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
154
155 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
156 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
157 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
158
159 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
160 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
161 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
162 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
163
164
165 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
166
167 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
168 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
169 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
170
171 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
172 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
173 following common user-interface guidelines.
174
175 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
176 control structures.
177
178 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
179
180 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
181 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
182 channel (omni mode).
183
184 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
185 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
186
187 * Minor configure fixes.
188
189
190 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
191
192 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
193
194 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
195 and on session file save.
196
197 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
198 on create time.
199
200 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
201
202
203 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
204
205 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
206 over the empty workspace area.
207
208 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
209 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
210 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
211 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
212
213 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
214 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
215
216 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
217 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
218
219 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
220 each sampler channel strip.
221
222 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
223 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
224
225 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
226 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
227
228 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
229 new sampler channel strip.
230
231 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
232 suggested in the following lines:
233
234 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
235 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
236 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
237 LOAD ENGINE ...
238 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
239 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
240
241
242 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
