9 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
10 (EXPERIMENTAL)
11
12
13 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
14
15 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
16 64bit Linux flavours.
17
18 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
19
20 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
21 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
22
23 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
24
25
26 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
27
28 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
29
30 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
31 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
32
33 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
34
35 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
36 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
37
38 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
39 main toolbar orientation.
40
41 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
42 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
43
44 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
45
46 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
47 debian, thanks).
48
49 * Translations install directory change.
50
51 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
52
53 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
54 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
55 instruments of the same file.
56
57 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
58 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
59
60
61 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
62
63 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
64
65 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
66
67 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
68 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
69
70 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
71
72 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
73
74 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
75
76 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
77 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
78
79 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
80
81 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
82
83 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
84
85 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
86
87 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
88 and make.
89
90 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
91 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
92 Debian 6.
93
94 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
95 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
96
97 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
98 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
99 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
100 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
101
102 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
103
104 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
105 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
106 wrong main widget hidden state.
107
108 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
109
110 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
111 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
112 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
113 targets (--enable-debug).
114
115 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
116
117 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
118 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
119 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
120
121 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
122 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
123
124 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
125 a menu separator has been added.
126
127 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
128 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
129
130 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
131 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
132 lame green solid background :).
133
134 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
135 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
136
137 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
138
139
140 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
141
142 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
143 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
144 ever may follow ;)
145
146 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
147
148 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
149 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
150 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
151 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
152 a sampler the next time.
153
154 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
155
156 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
157
158 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
159 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
160 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
161 (default none).
162
163 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
164 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
165 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
166
167 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
168 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
169 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
170 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
171
172 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
173 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
174
175 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
176 screwed.
177
178 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
179 e.g. by other frontends.
180
181 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
182 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
183 (fixes segfault on device changes)
184
185 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
186 "View" main menu.
187
188 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
189
190 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
191
192 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
193 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
194
195 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
196 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
197
198
199 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
200
201 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
202 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
203 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
204 default.
205
206 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
207 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
208
209 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
210 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
211
212 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
213 creating a new sampler channel.
214
215 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
216
217 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
218 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
219 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
220 first time).
221
222 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
223 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
224
225 * Added Windows file path support.
226
227 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
228 under win32.
229
230 * Qt4 port of the application.
231
232
233 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
234
235 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
236 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
237 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
238 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
239
240 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
241 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
242 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
243 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
244
245 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
246 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
247 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
248
249 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
250
251
252 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
253
254 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
255 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
256 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
257
258 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
259
260 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
261 the session state, only at code-level.
262
263 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
264 existing instrument file name.
265
266 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
267 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
268 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
269 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
270 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
271 corrected some tooltip text strings.
272
273 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
274 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
275 window managers.
276
277 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
278 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
279 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
280 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
281
282 * GPL address update.
283
284
285 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
286
287 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
288 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
289
290 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
291
292 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
293 installation paths have been added to configure command
294 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
295
296 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
297 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
298 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
299 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
300 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
301
302 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
303 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
304 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
305 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
306
307 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
308
309 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
310 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
311
312 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
313 title name prefix.
314
315 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
316 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
317 generated at configure time.
318
319 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
320 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
321 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
322 argument have some effect on X11.
323
324 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
325
326 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
327 compiled with -no-stl.
328
329
330 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
331
332 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
333 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
334 one, while on qjackctl).
335
336 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
337 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
338
339
340 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
341
342 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
343 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
344
345 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
346 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
347 info updates.
348
349 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
350 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
351 device dialog.
352
353 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
354
355 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
356 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
357 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
358 Mayat, for pointing these out).
359
360
361 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
362
363 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
364
365 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
366 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
367 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
368
369 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
370 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
371
372 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
373 an instrument.
374
375 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
376
377
378 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
379
380 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
381 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
382 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
383 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
384
385 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
386 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
387 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
388
389 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
390 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
391
392 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
393
394 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
395 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
396 change information are now also posted to messages window.
397
398 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
399 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
400 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
401 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
402
403 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
404 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
405 sampler instrument file.
406
407 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
408 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
409 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
410 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
411
412 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
413 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
414 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
415
416 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
417 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
418 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
419 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
420
421
422 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
423
424 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
425 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
426 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
427
428 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
429 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
430 following common user-interface guidelines.
431
432 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
433 control structures.
434
435 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
436
437 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
438 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
439 channel (omni mode).
440
441 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
442 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
443
444 * Minor configure fixes.
445
446
447 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
448
449 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
450
451 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
452 and on session file save.
453
454 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
455 on create time.
456
457 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
458
459
460 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
461
462 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
463 over the empty workspace area.
464
465 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
466 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
467 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
468 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
469
470 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
471 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
472
473 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
474 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
475
476 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
477 each sampler channel strip.
478
479 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
480 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
481
482 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
483 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
484
485 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
486 new sampler channel strip.
487
488 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
489 suggested in the following lines:
490
491 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
492 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
493 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
494 LOAD ENGINE ...
495 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
496 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
497
498
499 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
