6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
9 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
10
11 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
12 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
13
14
15 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
16
17 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
18 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
19 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
20
21 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
22 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
23
24 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
25 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
26
27 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
28 creating a new sampler channel.
29
30 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
31
32 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
33 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
34 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
35 first time).
36
37 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
38 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
39
40 * Added Windows file path support.
41
42 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
43 under win32.
44
45 * Qt4 port of the application.
46
47
48 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
49
50 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
51 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
52 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
53 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
54
55 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
56 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
57 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
58 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
59
60 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
61 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
62 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
63
64 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
65
66
67 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
68
69 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
70 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
71 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
72
73 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
74
75 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
76 the session state, only at code-level.
77
78 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
79 existing instrument file name.
80
81 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
82 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
83 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
84 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
85 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
86 corrected some tooltip text strings.
87
88 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
89 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
90 window managers.
91
92 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
93 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
94 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
95 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
96
97 * GPL address update.
98
99
100 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
101
102 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
103 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
104
105 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
106
107 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
108 installation paths have been added to configure command
109 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
110
111 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
112 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
113 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
114 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
115 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
116
117 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
118 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
119 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
120 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
121
122 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
123
124 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
125 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
126
127 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
128 title name prefix.
129
130 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
131 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
132 generated at configure time.
133
134 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
135 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
136 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
137 argument have some effect on X11.
138
139 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
140
141 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
142 compiled with -no-stl.
143
144
145 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
146
147 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
148 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
149 one, while on qjackctl).
150
151 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
152 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
153
154
155 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
156
157 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
158 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
159
160 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
161 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
162 info updates.
163
164 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
165 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
166 device dialog.
167
168 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
169
170 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
171 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
172 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
173 Mayat, for pointing these out).
174
175
176 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
177
178 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
179
180 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
181 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
182 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
183
184 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
185 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
186
187 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
188 an instrument.
189
190 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
191
192
193 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
194
195 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
196 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
197 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
198 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
199
200 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
201 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
202 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
203
204 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
205 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
206
207 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
208
209 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
210 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
211 change information are now also posted to messages window.
212
213 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
214 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
215 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
216 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
217
218 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
219 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
220 sampler instrument file.
221
222 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
223 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
224 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
225 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
226
227 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
228 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
229 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
230
231 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
232 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
233 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
234 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
235
236
237 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
238
239 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
240 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
241 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
242
243 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
244 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
245 following common user-interface guidelines.
246
247 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
248 control structures.
249
250 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
251
252 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
253 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
254 channel (omni mode).
255
256 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
257 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
258
259 * Minor configure fixes.
260
261
262 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
263
264 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
265
266 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
267 and on session file save.
268
269 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
270 on create time.
271
272 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
273
274
275 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
276
277 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
278 over the empty workspace area.
279
280 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
281 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
282 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
283 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
284
285 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
286 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
287
288 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
289 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
290
291 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
292 each sampler channel strip.
293
294 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
295 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
296
297 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
298 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
299
300 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
301 new sampler channel strip.
302
303 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
304 suggested in the following lines:
305
306 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
307 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
308 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
309 LOAD ENGINE ...
310 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
311 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
312
313
314 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
