6 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
7
8 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
9 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
10 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
11 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
12
13 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
14 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
15 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
16 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
17
18 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
19 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
20 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
21
22 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
23
24
25 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
26
27 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
28 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
29 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
30
31 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
32
33 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
34 the session state, only at code-level.
35
36 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
37 existing instrument file name.
38
39 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
40 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
41 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
42 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
43 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
44 corrected some tooltip text strings.
45
46 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
47 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
48 window managers.
49
50 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
51 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
52 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
53 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
54
55 * GPL address update.
56
57
58 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
59
60 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
61 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
62
63 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
64
65 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
66 installation paths have been added to configure command
67 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
68
69 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
70 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
71 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
72 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
73 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
74
75 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
76 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
77 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
78 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
79
80 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
81
82 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
83 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
84
85 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
86 title name prefix.
87
88 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
89 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
90 generated at configure time.
91
92 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
93 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
94 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
95 argument have some effect on X11.
96
97 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
98
99 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
100 compiled with -no-stl.
101
102
103 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
104
105 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
106 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
107 one, while on qjackctl).
108
109 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
110 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
111
112
113 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
114
115 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
116 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
117
118 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
119 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
120 info updates.
121
122 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
123 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
124 device dialog.
125
126 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
127
128 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
129 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
130 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
131 Mayat, for pointing these out).
132
133
134 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
135
136 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
137
138 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
139 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
140 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
141
142 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
143 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
144
145 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
146 an instrument.
147
148 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
149
150
151 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
152
153 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
154 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
155 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
156 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
157
158 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
159 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
160 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
161
162 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
163 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
164
165 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
166
167 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
168 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
169 change information are now also posted to messages window.
170
171 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
172 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
173 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
174 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
175
176 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
177 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
178 sampler instrument file.
179
180 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
181 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
182 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
183 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
184
185 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
186 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
187 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
188
189 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
190 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
191 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
192 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
193
194
195 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
196
197 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
198 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
199 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
200
201 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
202 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
203 following common user-interface guidelines.
204
205 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
206 control structures.
207
208 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
209
210 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
211 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
212 channel (omni mode).
213
214 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
215 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
216
217 * Minor configure fixes.
218
219
220 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
221
222 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
223
224 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
225 and on session file save.
226
227 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
228 on create time.
229
230 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
231
232
233 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
234
235 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
236 over the empty workspace area.
237
238 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
239 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
240 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
241 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
242
243 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
244 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
245
246 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
247 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
248
249 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
250 each sampler channel strip.
251
252 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
253 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
254
255 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
256 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
257
258 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
259 new sampler channel strip.
260
261 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
262 suggested in the following lines:
263
264 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
265 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
266 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
267 LOAD ENGINE ...
268 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
269 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
270
271
272 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
