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

4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
9 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
10 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
11 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
12 a sampler the next time.
13
14 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
15
16 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
17
18 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
19 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
20 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
21 (default none).
22
23 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
24 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
25 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
26
27 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
28 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
29 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
30 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
31
32 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
33 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
34
35 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
36 screwed.
37
38 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
39 e.g. by other frontends.
40
41 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
42 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
43 (fixes segfault on device changes)
44
45 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
46 "View" main menu.
47
48 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
49
50 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
51
52 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
53 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
54
55 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
56 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
57
58
59 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
60
61 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
62 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
63 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
64 default.
65
66 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
67 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
68
69 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
70 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
71
72 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
73 creating a new sampler channel.
74
75 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
76
77 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
78 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
79 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
80 first time).
81
82 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
83 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
84
85 * Added Windows file path support.
86
87 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
88 under win32.
89
90 * Qt4 port of the application.
91
92
93 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
94
95 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
96 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
97 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
98 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
99
100 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
101 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
102 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
103 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
104
105 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
106 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
107 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
108
109 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
110
111
112 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
113
114 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
115 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
116 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
117
118 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
119
120 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
121 the session state, only at code-level.
122
123 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
124 existing instrument file name.
125
126 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
127 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
128 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
129 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
130 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
131 corrected some tooltip text strings.
132
133 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
134 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
135 window managers.
136
137 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
138 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
139 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
140 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
141
142 * GPL address update.
143
144
145 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
146
147 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
148 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
149
150 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
151
152 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
153 installation paths have been added to configure command
154 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
155
156 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
157 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
158 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
159 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
160 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
161
162 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
163 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
164 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
165 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
166
167 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
168
169 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
170 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
171
172 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
173 title name prefix.
174
175 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
176 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
177 generated at configure time.
178
179 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
180 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
181 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
182 argument have some effect on X11.
183
184 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
185
186 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
187 compiled with -no-stl.
188
189
190 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
191
192 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
193 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
194 one, while on qjackctl).
195
196 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
197 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
198
199
200 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
201
202 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
203 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
204
205 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
206 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
207 info updates.
208
209 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
210 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
211 device dialog.
212
213 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
214
215 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
216 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
217 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
218 Mayat, for pointing these out).
219
220
221 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
222
223 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
224
225 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
226 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
227 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
228
229 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
230 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
231
232 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
233 an instrument.
234
235 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
236
237
238 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
239
240 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
241 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
242 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
243 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
244
245 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
246 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
247 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
248
249 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
250 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
251
252 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
253
254 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
255 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
256 change information are now also posted to messages window.
257
258 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
259 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
260 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
261 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
262
263 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
264 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
265 sampler instrument file.
266
267 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
268 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
269 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
270 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
271
272 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
273 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
274 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
275
276 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
277 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
278 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
279 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
280
281
282 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
283
284 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
285 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
286 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
287
288 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
289 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
290 following common user-interface guidelines.
291
292 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
293 control structures.
294
295 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
296
297 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
298 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
299 channel (omni mode).
300
301 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
302 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
303
304 * Minor configure fixes.
305
306
307 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
308
309 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
310
311 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
312 and on session file save.
313
314 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
315 on create time.
316
317 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
318
319
320 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
321
322 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
323 over the empty workspace area.
324
325 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
326 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
327 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
328 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
329
330 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
331 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
332
333 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
334 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
335
336 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
337 each sampler channel strip.
338
339 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
340 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
341
342 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
343 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
344
345 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
346 new sampler channel strip.
347
348 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
349 suggested in the following lines:
350
351 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
352 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
353 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
354 LOAD ENGINE ...
355 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
356 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
357
358
359 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
