* Qt4 migration: finished MIDI instrument mapping dialogs, with this commit
  all the functionalities from the Qt3 version of qsampler are finally
  restored, only minor "cosmetical" things to fix now

1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------
3
4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters which the
9 user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
10
11 * Qt4 port of the application.
12
13
14 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
15
16 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
17 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
18 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
19 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
20
21 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
22 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
23 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
24 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
25
26 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
27 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
28 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
29
30 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
31
32
33 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
34
35 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
36 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
37 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
38
39 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
40
41 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
42 the session state, only at code-level.
43
44 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
45 existing instrument file name.
46
47 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
48 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
49 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
50 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
51 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
52 corrected some tooltip text strings.
53
54 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
55 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
56 window managers.
57
58 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
59 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
60 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
61 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
62
63 * GPL address update.
64
65
66 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
67
68 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
69 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
70
71 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
72
73 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
74 installation paths have been added to configure command
75 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
76
77 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
78 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
79 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
80 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
81 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
82
83 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
84 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
85 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
86 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
87
88 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
89
90 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
91 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
92
93 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
94 title name prefix.
95
96 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
97 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
98 generated at configure time.
99
100 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
101 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
102 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
103 argument have some effect on X11.
104
105 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
106
107 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
108 compiled with -no-stl.
109
110
111 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
112
113 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
114 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
115 one, while on qjackctl).
116
117 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
118 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
119
120
121 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
122
123 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
124 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
125
126 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
127 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
128 info updates.
129
130 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
131 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
132 device dialog.
133
134 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
135
136 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
137 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
138 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
139 Mayat, for pointing these out).
140
141
142 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
143
144 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
145
146 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
147 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
148 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
149
150 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
151 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
152
153 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
154 an instrument.
155
156 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
157
158
159 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
160
161 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
162 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
163 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
164 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
165
166 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
167 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
168 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
169
170 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
171 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
172
173 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
174
175 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
176 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
177 change information are now also posted to messages window.
178
179 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
180 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
181 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
182 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
183
184 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
185 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
186 sampler instrument file.
187
188 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
189 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
190 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
191 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
192
193 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
194 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
195 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
196
197 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
198 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
199 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
200 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
201
202
203 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
204
205 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
206 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
207 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
208
209 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
210 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
211 following common user-interface guidelines.
212
213 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
214 control structures.
215
216 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
217
218 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
219 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
220 channel (omni mode).
221
222 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
223 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
224
225 * Minor configure fixes.
226
227
228 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
229
230 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
231
232 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
233 and on session file save.
234
235 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
236 on create time.
237
238 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
239
240
241 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
242
243 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
244 over the empty workspace area.
245
246 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
247 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
248 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
249 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
250
251 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
252 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
253
254 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
255 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
256
257 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
258 each sampler channel strip.
259
260 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
261 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
262
263 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
264 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
265
266 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
267 new sampler channel strip.
268
269 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
270 suggested in the following lines:
271
272 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
273 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
274 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
275 LOAD ENGINE ...
276 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
277 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
278
279
280 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
