6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
9
10 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
11 the session state, only at code-level.
12
13 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
14 existing instrument file name.
15
16 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
17 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
18 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
19 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
20 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
21 corrected some tooltip text strings.
22
23 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
24 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
25 window managers.
26
27 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
28 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
29 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
30 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
31
32 * GPL address update.
33
34
35 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
36
37 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
38 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
39
40 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
41
42 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
43 installation paths have been added to configure command
44 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
45
46 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
47 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
48 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
49 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
50 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
51
52 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
53 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
54 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
55 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
56
57 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
58
59 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
60 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
61
62 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
63 title name prefix.
64
65 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
66 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
67 generated at configure time.
68
69 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
70 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
71 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
72 argument have some effect on X11.
73
74 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
75
76 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
77 compiled with -no-stl.
78
79
80 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
81
82 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
83 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
84 one, while on qjackctl).
85
86 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
87 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
88
89
90 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
91
92 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
93 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
94
95 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
96 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
97 info updates.
98
99 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
100 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
101 device dialog.
102
103 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
104
105 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
106 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
107 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
108 Mayat, for pointing these out).
109
110
111 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
112
113 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
114
115 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
116 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
117 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
118
119 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
120 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
121
122 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
123 an instrument.
124
125 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
126
127
128 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
129
130 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
131 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
132 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
133 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
134
135 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
136 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
137 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
138
139 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
140 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
141
142 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
143
144 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
145 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
146 change information are now also posted to messages window.
147
148 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
149 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
150 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
151 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
152
153 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
154 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
155 sampler instrument file.
156
157 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
158 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
159 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
160 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
161
162 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
163 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
164 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
165
166 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
167 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
168 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
169 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
170
171
172 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
173
174 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
175 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
176 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
177
178 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
179 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
180 following common user-interface guidelines.
181
182 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
183 control structures.
184
185 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
186
187 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
188 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
189 channel (omni mode).
190
191 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
192 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
193
194 * Minor configure fixes.
195
196
197 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
198
199 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
200
201 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
202 and on session file save.
203
204 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
205 on create time.
206
207 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
208
209
210 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
211
212 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
213 over the empty workspace area.
214
215 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
216 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
217 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
218 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
219
220 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
221 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
222
223 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
224 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
225
226 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
227 each sampler channel strip.
228
229 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
230 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
231
232 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
233 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
234
235 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
236 new sampler channel strip.
237
238 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
239 suggested in the following lines:
240
241 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
242 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
243 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
244 LOAD ENGINE ...
245 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
246 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
247
248
249 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
