5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
9 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
10 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
11 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
12
13 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
14 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
15 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
16
17 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
18
19
20 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
21
22 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
23 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
24 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
25
26 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
27
28 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
29 the session state, only at code-level.
30
31 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
32 existing instrument file name.
33
34 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
35 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
36 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
37 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
38 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
39 corrected some tooltip text strings.
40
41 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
42 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
43 window managers.
44
45 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
46 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
47 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
48 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
49
50 * GPL address update.
51
52
53 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
54
55 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
56 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
57
58 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
59
60 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
61 installation paths have been added to configure command
62 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
63
64 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
65 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
66 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
67 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
68 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
69
70 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
71 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
72 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
73 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
74
75 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
76
77 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
78 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
79
80 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
81 title name prefix.
82
83 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
84 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
85 generated at configure time.
86
87 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
88 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
89 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
90 argument have some effect on X11.
91
92 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
93
94 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
95 compiled with -no-stl.
96
97
98 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
99
100 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
101 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
102 one, while on qjackctl).
103
104 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
105 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
106
107
108 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
109
110 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
111 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
112
113 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
114 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
115 info updates.
116
117 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
118 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
119 device dialog.
120
121 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
122
123 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
124 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
125 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
126 Mayat, for pointing these out).
127
128
129 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
130
131 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
132
133 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
134 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
135 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
136
137 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
138 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
139
140 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
141 an instrument.
142
143 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
144
145
146 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
147
148 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
149 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
150 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
151 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
152
153 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
154 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
155 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
156
157 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
158 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
159
160 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
161
162 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
163 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
164 change information are now also posted to messages window.
165
166 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
167 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
168 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
169 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
170
171 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
172 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
173 sampler instrument file.
174
175 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
176 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
177 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
178 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
179
180 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
181 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
182 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
183
184 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
185 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
186 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
187 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
188
189
190 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
191
192 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
193 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
194 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
195
196 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
197 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
198 following common user-interface guidelines.
199
200 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
201 control structures.
202
203 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
204
205 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
206 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
207 channel (omni mode).
208
209 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
210 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
211
212 * Minor configure fixes.
213
214
215 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
216
217 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
218
219 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
220 and on session file save.
221
222 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
223 on create time.
224
225 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
226
227
228 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
229
230 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
231 over the empty workspace area.
232
233 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
234 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
235 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
236 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
237
238 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
239 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
240
241 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
242 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
243
244 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
245 each sampler channel strip.
246
247 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
248 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
249
250 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
251 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
252
253 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
254 new sampler channel strip.
255
256 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
257 suggested in the following lines:
258
259 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
260 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
261 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
262 LOAD ENGINE ...
263 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
264 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
265
266
267 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
