* Release 0.2.1: Qt4 migration complete.

1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------

4 ChangeLog
5
6 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
7
8 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
9 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
10 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
11
12 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
13 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
14
15 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
16 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
17
18 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
19 creating a new sampler channel.
20
21 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
22
23 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
24 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
25 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
26 first time).
27
28 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
29 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
30
31 * Added Windows file path support.
32
33 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
34 under win32.
35
36 * Qt4 port of the application.
37
38
39 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
40
41 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
42 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
43 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
44 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
45
46 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
47 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
48 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
49 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
50
51 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
52 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
53 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
54
55 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
56
57
58 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
59
60 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
61 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
62 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
63
64 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
65
66 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
67 the session state, only at code-level.
68
69 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
70 existing instrument file name.
71
72 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
73 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
74 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
75 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
76 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
77 corrected some tooltip text strings.
78
79 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
80 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
81 window managers.
82
83 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
84 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
85 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
86 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
87
88 * GPL address update.
89
90
91 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
92
93 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
94 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
95
96 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
97
98 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
99 installation paths have been added to configure command
100 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
101
102 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
103 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
104 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
105 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
106 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
107
108 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
109 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
110 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
111 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
112
113 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
114
115 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
116 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
117
118 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
119 title name prefix.
120
121 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
122 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
123 generated at configure time.
124
125 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
126 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
127 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
128 argument have some effect on X11.
129
130 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
131
132 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
133 compiled with -no-stl.
134
135
136 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
137
138 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
139 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
140 one, while on qjackctl).
141
142 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
143 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
144
145
146 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
147
148 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
149 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
150
151 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
152 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
153 info updates.
154
155 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
156 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
157 device dialog.
158
159 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
160
161 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
162 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
163 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
164 Mayat, for pointing these out).
165
166
167 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
168
169 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
170
171 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
172 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
173 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
174
175 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
176 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
177
178 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
179 an instrument.
180
181 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
182
183
184 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
185
186 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
187 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
188 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
189 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
190
191 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
192 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
193 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
194
195 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
196 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
197
198 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
199
200 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
201 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
202 change information are now also posted to messages window.
203
204 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
205 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
206 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
207 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
208
209 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
210 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
211 sampler instrument file.
212
213 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
214 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
215 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
216 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
217
218 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
219 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
220 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
221
222 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
223 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
224 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
225 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
226
227
228 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
229
230 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
231 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
232 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
233
234 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
235 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
236 following common user-interface guidelines.
237
238 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
239 control structures.
240
241 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
242
243 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
244 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
245 channel (omni mode).
246
247 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
248 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
249
250 * Minor configure fixes.
251
252
253 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
254
255 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
256
257 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
258 and on session file save.
259
260 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
261 on create time.
262
263 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
264
265
266 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
267
268 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
269 over the empty workspace area.
270
271 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
272 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
273 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
274 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
275
276 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
277 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
278
279 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
280 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
281
282 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
283 each sampler channel strip.
284
285 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
286 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
287
288 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
289 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
290
291 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
292 new sampler channel strip.
293
294 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
295 suggested in the following lines:
296
297 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
298 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
299 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
300 LOAD ENGINE ...
301 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
302 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
303
304
305 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
