8 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding font
9 size configuration, a new global user option is now available to the
10 rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size (default none).
11
12 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
13 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
14 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
15
16 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
17 with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
18 running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
19 up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
20
21 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
22 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
23
24 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
25 screwed.
26
27 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed e.g. by
28 other frontends.
29
30 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
31 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
32 (fixes segfault on device changes)
33
34 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the "View"
35 main menu.
36
37 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
38
39 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
40
41 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
42 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
43
44 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
45 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
46
47
48 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
49
50 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
51 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
52 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
53
54 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
55 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
56
57 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
58 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
59
60 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
61 creating a new sampler channel.
62
63 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
64
65 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
66 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
67 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
68 first time).
69
70 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
71 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
72
73 * Added Windows file path support.
74
75 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
76 under win32.
77
78 * Qt4 port of the application.
79
80
81 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
82
83 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
84 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
85 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
86 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
87
88 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
89 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
90 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
91 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
92
93 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
94 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
95 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
96
97 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
98
99
100 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
101
102 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
103 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
104 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
105
106 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
107
108 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
109 the session state, only at code-level.
110
111 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
112 existing instrument file name.
113
114 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
115 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
116 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
117 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
118 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
119 corrected some tooltip text strings.
120
121 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
122 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
123 window managers.
124
125 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
126 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
127 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
128 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
129
130 * GPL address update.
131
132
133 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
134
135 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
136 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
137
138 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
139
140 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
141 installation paths have been added to configure command
142 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
143
144 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
145 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
146 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
147 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
148 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
149
150 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
151 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
152 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
153 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
154
155 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
156
157 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
158 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
159
160 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
161 title name prefix.
162
163 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
164 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
165 generated at configure time.
166
167 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
168 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
169 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
170 argument have some effect on X11.
171
172 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
173
174 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
175 compiled with -no-stl.
176
177
178 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
179
180 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
181 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
182 one, while on qjackctl).
183
184 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
185 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
186
187
188 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
189
190 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
191 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
192
193 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
194 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
195 info updates.
196
197 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
198 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
199 device dialog.
200
201 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
202
203 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
204 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
205 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
206 Mayat, for pointing these out).
207
208
209 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
210
211 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
212
213 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
214 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
215 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
216
217 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
218 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
219
220 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
221 an instrument.
222
223 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
224
225
226 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
227
228 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
229 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
230 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
231 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
232
233 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
234 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
235 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
236
237 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
238 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
239
240 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
241
242 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
243 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
244 change information are now also posted to messages window.
245
246 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
247 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
248 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
249 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
250
251 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
252 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
253 sampler instrument file.
254
255 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
256 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
257 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
258 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
259
260 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
261 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
262 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
263
264 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
265 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
266 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
267 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
268
269
270 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
271
272 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
273 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
274 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
275
276 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
277 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
278 following common user-interface guidelines.
279
280 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
281 control structures.
282
283 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
284
285 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
286 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
287 channel (omni mode).
288
289 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
290 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
291
292 * Minor configure fixes.
293
294
295 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
296
297 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
298
299 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
300 and on session file save.
301
302 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
303 on create time.
304
305 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
306
307
308 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
309
310 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
311 over the empty workspace area.
312
313 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
314 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
315 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
316 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
317
318 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
319 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
320
321 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
322 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
323
324 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
325 each sampler channel strip.
326
327 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
328 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
329
330 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
331 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
332
333 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
334 new sampler channel strip.
335
336 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
337 suggested in the following lines:
338
339 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
340 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
341 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
342 LOAD ENGINE ...
343 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
344 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
345
346
347 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
