6 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
7
8 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
9 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
10 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
11
12 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
13
14 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
15 the session state, only at code-level.
16
17 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
18 existing instrument file name.
19
20 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
21 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
22 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
23 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
24 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
25 corrected some tooltip text strings.
26
27 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
28 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
29 window managers.
30
31 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
32 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
33 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
34 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
35
36 * GPL address update.
37
38
39 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
40
41 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
42 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
43
44 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
45
46 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
47 installation paths have been added to configure command
48 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
49
50 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
51 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
52 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
53 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
54 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
55
56 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
57 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
58 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
59 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
60
61 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
62
63 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
64 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
65
66 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
67 title name prefix.
68
69 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
70 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
71 generated at configure time.
72
73 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
74 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
75 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
76 argument have some effect on X11.
77
78 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
79
80 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
81 compiled with -no-stl.
82
83
84 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
85
86 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
87 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
88 one, while on qjackctl).
89
90 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
91 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
92
93
94 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
95
96 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
97 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
98
99 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
100 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
101 info updates.
102
103 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
104 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
105 device dialog.
106
107 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
108
109 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
110 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
111 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
112 Mayat, for pointing these out).
113
114
115 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
116
117 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
118
119 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
120 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
121 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
122
123 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
124 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
125
126 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
127 an instrument.
128
129 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
130
131
132 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
133
134 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
135 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
136 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
137 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
138
139 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
140 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
141 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
142
143 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
144 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
145
146 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
147
148 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
149 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
150 change information are now also posted to messages window.
151
152 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
153 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
154 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
155 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
156
157 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
158 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
159 sampler instrument file.
160
161 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
162 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
163 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
164 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
165
166 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
167 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
168 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
169
170 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
171 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
172 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
173 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
174
175
176 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
177
178 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
179 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
180 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
181
182 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
183 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
184 following common user-interface guidelines.
185
186 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
187 control structures.
188
189 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
190
191 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
192 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
193 channel (omni mode).
194
195 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
196 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
197
198 * Minor configure fixes.
199
200
201 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
202
203 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
204
205 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
206 and on session file save.
207
208 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
209 on create time.
210
211 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
212
213
214 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
215
216 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
217 over the empty workspace area.
218
219 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
220 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
221 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
222 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
223
224 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
225 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
226
227 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
228 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
229
230 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
231 each sampler channel strip.
232
233 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
234 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
235
236 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
237 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
238
239 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
240 new sampler channel strip.
241
242 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
243 suggested in the following lines:
244
245 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
246 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
247 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
248 LOAD ENGINE ...
249 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
250 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
251
252
253 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
