9 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
10 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get. (EXPERIMENTAL)
11
12 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
13 (EXPERIMENTAL)
14
15
16 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
17
18 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
19 64bit Linux flavours.
20
21 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
22
23 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
24 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
25
26 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
27
28
29 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
30
31 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
32
33 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
34 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
35
36 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
37
38 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
39 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
40
41 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
42 main toolbar orientation.
43
44 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
45 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
46
47 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
48
49 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
50 debian, thanks).
51
52 * Translations install directory change.
53
54 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
55
56 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
57 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
58 instruments of the same file.
59
60 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
61 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
62
63
64 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
65
66 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
67
68 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
69
70 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
71 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
72
73 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
74
75 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
76
77 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
78
79 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
80 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
81
82 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
83
84 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
85
86 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
87
88 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
89
90 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
91 and make.
92
93 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
94 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
95 Debian 6.
96
97 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
98 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
99
100 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
101 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
102 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
103 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
104
105 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
106
107 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
108 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
109 wrong main widget hidden state.
110
111 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
112
113 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
114 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
115 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
116 targets (--enable-debug).
117
118 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
119
120 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
121 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
122 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
123
124 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
125 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
126
127 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
128 a menu separator has been added.
129
130 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
131 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
132
133 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
134 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
135 lame green solid background :).
136
137 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
138 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
139
140 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
141
142
143 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
144
145 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
146 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
147 ever may follow ;)
148
149 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
150
151 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
152 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
153 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
154 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
155 a sampler the next time.
156
157 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
158
159 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
160
161 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
162 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
163 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
164 (default none).
165
166 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
167 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
168 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
169
170 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
171 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
172 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
173 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
174
175 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
176 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
177
178 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
179 screwed.
180
181 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
182 e.g. by other frontends.
183
184 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
185 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
186 (fixes segfault on device changes)
187
188 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
189 "View" main menu.
190
191 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
192
193 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
194
195 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
196 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
197
198 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
199 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
200
201
202 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
203
204 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
205 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
206 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
207 default.
208
209 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
210 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
211
212 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
213 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
214
215 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
216 creating a new sampler channel.
217
218 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
219
220 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
221 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
222 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
223 first time).
224
225 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
226 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
227
228 * Added Windows file path support.
229
230 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
231 under win32.
232
233 * Qt4 port of the application.
234
235
236 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
237
238 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
239 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
240 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
241 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
242
243 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
244 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
245 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
246 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
247
248 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
249 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
250 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
251
252 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
253
254
255 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
256
257 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
258 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
259 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
260
261 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
262
263 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
264 the session state, only at code-level.
265
266 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
267 existing instrument file name.
268
269 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
270 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
271 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
272 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
273 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
274 corrected some tooltip text strings.
275
276 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
277 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
278 window managers.
279
280 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
281 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
282 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
283 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
284
285 * GPL address update.
286
287
288 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
289
290 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
291 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
292
293 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
294
295 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
296 installation paths have been added to configure command
297 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
298
299 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
300 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
301 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
302 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
303 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
304
305 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
306 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
307 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
308 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
309
310 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
311
312 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
313 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
314
315 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
316 title name prefix.
317
318 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
319 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
320 generated at configure time.
321
322 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
323 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
324 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
325 argument have some effect on X11.
326
327 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
328
329 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
330 compiled with -no-stl.
331
332
333 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
334
335 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
336 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
337 one, while on qjackctl).
338
339 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
340 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
341
342
343 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
344
345 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
346 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
347
348 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
349 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
350 info updates.
351
352 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
353 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
354 device dialog.
355
356 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
357
358 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
359 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
360 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
361 Mayat, for pointing these out).
362
363
364 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
365
366 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
367
368 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
369 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
370 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
371
372 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
373 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
374
375 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
376 an instrument.
377
378 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
379
380
381 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
382
383 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
384 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
385 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
386 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
387
388 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
389 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
390 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
391
392 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
393 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
394
395 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
396
397 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
398 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
399 change information are now also posted to messages window.
400
401 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
402 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
403 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
404 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
405
406 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
407 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
408 sampler instrument file.
409
410 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
411 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
412 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
413 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
414
415 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
416 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
417 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
418
419 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
420 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
421 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
422 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
423
424
425 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
426
427 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
428 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
429 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
430
431 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
432 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
433 following common user-interface guidelines.
434
435 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
436 control structures.
437
438 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
439
440 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
441 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
442 channel (omni mode).
443
444 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
445 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
446
447 * Minor configure fixes.
448
449
450 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
451
452 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
453
454 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
455 and on session file save.
456
457 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
458 on create time.
459
460 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
461
462
463 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
464
465 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
466 over the empty workspace area.
467
468 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
469 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
470 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
471 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
472
473 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
474 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
475
476 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
477 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
478
479 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
480 each sampler channel strip.
481
482 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
483 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
484
485 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
486 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
487
488 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
489 new sampler channel strip.
490
491 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
492 suggested in the following lines:
493
494 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
495 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
496 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
497 LOAD ENGINE ...
498 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
499 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
500
501
502 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
