* Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
  the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
  (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).

* Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
  with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
  running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
  up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).

8 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
9 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
10 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
11
12 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
13 with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
14 running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
15 up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
16
17 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
18 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
19
20 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
21 screwed.
22
23 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed e.g. by
24 other frontends.
25
26 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
27 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
28 (fixes segfault on device changes)
29
30 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the "View"
31 main menu.
32
33 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
34
35 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
36
37 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
38 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
39
40 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
41 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
42
43
44 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
45
46 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
47 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
48 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
49
50 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
51 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
52
53 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
54 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
55
56 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
57 creating a new sampler channel.
58
59 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
60
61 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
62 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
63 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
64 first time).
65
66 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
67 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
68
69 * Added Windows file path support.
70
71 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
72 under win32.
73
74 * Qt4 port of the application.
75
76
77 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
78
79 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
80 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
81 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
82 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
83
84 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
85 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
86 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
87 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
88
89 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
90 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
91 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
92
93 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
94
95
96 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
97
98 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
99 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
100 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
101
102 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
103
104 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
105 the session state, only at code-level.
106
107 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
108 existing instrument file name.
109
110 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
111 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
112 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
113 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
114 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
115 corrected some tooltip text strings.
116
117 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
118 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
119 window managers.
120
121 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
122 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
123 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
124 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
125
126 * GPL address update.
127
128
129 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
130
131 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
132 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
133
134 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
135
136 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
137 installation paths have been added to configure command
138 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
139
140 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
141 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
142 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
143 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
144 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
145
146 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
147 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
148 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
149 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
150
151 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
152
153 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
154 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
155
156 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
157 title name prefix.
158
159 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
160 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
161 generated at configure time.
162
163 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
164 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
165 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
166 argument have some effect on X11.
167
168 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
169
170 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
171 compiled with -no-stl.
172
173
174 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
175
176 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
177 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
178 one, while on qjackctl).
179
180 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
181 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
182
183
184 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
185
186 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
187 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
188
189 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
190 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
191 info updates.
192
193 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
194 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
195 device dialog.
196
197 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
198
199 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
200 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
201 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
202 Mayat, for pointing these out).
203
204
205 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
206
207 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
208
209 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
210 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
211 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
212
213 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
214 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
215
216 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
217 an instrument.
218
219 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
220
221
222 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
223
224 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
225 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
226 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
227 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
228
229 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
230 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
231 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
232
233 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
234 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
235
236 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
237
238 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
239 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
240 change information are now also posted to messages window.
241
242 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
243 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
244 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
245 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
246
247 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
248 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
249 sampler instrument file.
250
251 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
252 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
253 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
254 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
255
256 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
257 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
258 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
259
260 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
261 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
262 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
263 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
264
265
266 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
267
268 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
269 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
270 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
271
272 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
273 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
274 following common user-interface guidelines.
275
276 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
277 control structures.
278
279 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
280
281 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
282 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
283 channel (omni mode).
284
285 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
286 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
287
288 * Minor configure fixes.
289
290
291 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
292
293 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
294
295 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
296 and on session file save.
297
298 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
299 on create time.
300
301 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
302
303
304 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
305
306 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
307 over the empty workspace area.
308
309 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
310 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
311 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
312 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
313
314 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
315 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
316
317 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
318 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
319
320 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
321 each sampler channel strip.
322
323 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
324 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
325
326 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
327 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
328
329 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
330 new sampler channel strip.
331
332 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
333 suggested in the following lines:
334
335 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
336 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
337 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
338 LOAD ENGINE ...
339 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
340 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
341
342
343 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
