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

4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed e.g. by
9 other frontends.
10
11 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
12 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
13 (fixes segfault on device changes)
14
15 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the "View"
16 main menu.
17
18 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
19
20 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
21
22 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
23 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
24
25 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
26 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
27
28
29 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
30
31 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
32 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
33 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
34
35 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
36 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
37
38 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
39 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
40
41 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
42 creating a new sampler channel.
43
44 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
45
46 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
47 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
48 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
49 first time).
50
51 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
52 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
53
54 * Added Windows file path support.
55
56 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
57 under win32.
58
59 * Qt4 port of the application.
60
61
62 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
63
64 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
65 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
66 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
67 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
68
69 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
70 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
71 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
72 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
73
74 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
75 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
76 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
77
78 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
79
80
81 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
82
83 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
84 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
85 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
86
87 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
88
89 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
90 the session state, only at code-level.
91
92 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
93 existing instrument file name.
94
95 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
96 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
97 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
98 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
99 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
100 corrected some tooltip text strings.
101
102 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
103 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
104 window managers.
105
106 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
107 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
108 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
109 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
110
111 * GPL address update.
112
113
114 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
115
116 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
117 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
118
119 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
120
121 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
122 installation paths have been added to configure command
123 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
124
125 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
126 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
127 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
128 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
129 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
130
131 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
132 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
133 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
134 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
135
136 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
137
138 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
139 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
140
141 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
142 title name prefix.
143
144 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
145 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
146 generated at configure time.
147
148 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
149 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
150 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
151 argument have some effect on X11.
152
153 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
154
155 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
156 compiled with -no-stl.
157
158
159 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
160
161 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
162 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
163 one, while on qjackctl).
164
165 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
166 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
167
168
169 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
170
171 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
172 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
173
174 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
175 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
176 info updates.
177
178 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
179 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
180 device dialog.
181
182 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
183
184 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
185 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
186 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
187 Mayat, for pointing these out).
188
189
190 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
191
192 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
193
194 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
195 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
196 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
197
198 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
199 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
200
201 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
202 an instrument.
203
204 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
205
206
207 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
208
209 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
210 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
211 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
212 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
213
214 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
215 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
216 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
217
218 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
219 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
220
221 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
222
223 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
224 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
225 change information are now also posted to messages window.
226
227 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
228 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
229 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
230 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
231
232 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
233 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
234 sampler instrument file.
235
236 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
237 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
238 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
239 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
240
241 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
242 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
243 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
244
245 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
246 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
247 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
248 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
249
250
251 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
252
253 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
254 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
255 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
256
257 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
258 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
259 following common user-interface guidelines.
260
261 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
262 control structures.
263
264 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
265
266 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
267 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
268 channel (omni mode).
269
270 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
271 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
272
273 * Minor configure fixes.
274
275
276 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
277
278 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
279
280 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
281 and on session file save.
282
283 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
284 on create time.
285
286 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
287
288
289 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
290
291 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
292 over the empty workspace area.
293
294 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
295 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
296 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
297 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
298
299 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
300 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
301
302 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
303 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
304
305 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
306 each sampler channel strip.
307
308 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
309 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
310
311 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
312 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
313
314 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
315 new sampler channel strip.
316
317 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
318 suggested in the following lines:
319
320 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
321 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
322 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
323 LOAD ENGINE ...
324 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
325 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
326
327
328 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
