* implemented MIDI indicator LED on channel strips

1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------

4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
9
10 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
11
12 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
13 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
14
15 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
16 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
17
18
19 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
20
21 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
22 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
23 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
24
25 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
26 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
27
28 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
29 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
30
31 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
32 creating a new sampler channel.
33
34 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
35
36 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
37 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
38 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
39 first time).
40
41 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
42 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
43
44 * Added Windows file path support.
45
46 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
47 under win32.
48
49 * Qt4 port of the application.
50
51
52 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
53
54 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
55 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
56 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
57 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
58
59 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
60 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
61 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
62 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
63
64 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
65 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
66 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
67
68 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
69
70
71 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
72
73 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
74 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
75 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
76
77 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
78
79 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
80 the session state, only at code-level.
81
82 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
83 existing instrument file name.
84
85 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
86 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
87 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
88 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
89 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
90 corrected some tooltip text strings.
91
92 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
93 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
94 window managers.
95
96 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
97 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
98 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
99 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
100
101 * GPL address update.
102
103
104 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
105
106 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
107 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
108
109 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
110
111 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
112 installation paths have been added to configure command
113 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
114
115 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
116 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
117 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
118 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
119 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
120
121 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
122 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
123 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
124 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
125
126 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
127
128 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
129 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
130
131 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
132 title name prefix.
133
134 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
135 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
136 generated at configure time.
137
138 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
139 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
140 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
141 argument have some effect on X11.
142
143 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
144
145 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
146 compiled with -no-stl.
147
148
149 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
150
151 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
152 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
153 one, while on qjackctl).
154
155 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
156 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
157
158
159 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
160
161 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
162 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
163
164 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
165 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
166 info updates.
167
168 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
169 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
170 device dialog.
171
172 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
173
174 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
175 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
176 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
177 Mayat, for pointing these out).
178
179
180 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
181
182 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
183
184 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
185 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
186 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
187
188 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
189 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
190
191 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
192 an instrument.
193
194 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
195
196
197 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
198
199 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
200 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
201 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
202 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
203
204 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
205 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
206 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
207
208 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
209 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
210
211 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
212
213 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
214 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
215 change information are now also posted to messages window.
216
217 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
218 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
219 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
220 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
221
222 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
223 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
224 sampler instrument file.
225
226 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
227 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
228 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
229 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
230
231 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
232 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
233 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
234
235 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
236 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
237 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
238 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
239
240
241 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
242
243 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
244 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
245 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
246
247 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
248 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
249 following common user-interface guidelines.
250
251 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
252 control structures.
253
254 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
255
256 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
257 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
258 channel (omni mode).
259
260 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
261 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
262
263 * Minor configure fixes.
264
265
266 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
267
268 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
269
270 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
271 and on session file save.
272
273 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
274 on create time.
275
276 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
277
278
279 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
280
281 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
282 over the empty workspace area.
283
284 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
285 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
286 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
287 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
288
289 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
290 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
291
292 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
293 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
294
295 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
296 each sampler channel strip.
297
298 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
299 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
300
301 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
302 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
303
304 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
305 new sampler channel strip.
306
307 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
308 suggested in the following lines:
309
310 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
311 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
312 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
313 LOAD ENGINE ...
314 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
315 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
316
317
318 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
