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

4 ChangeLog
5
6 CVS HEAD
7
8 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
9 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
10 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
11 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
12 a sampler the next time.
13
14 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
15
16 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
17
18 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding font
19 size configuration, a new global user option is now available to the
20 rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size (default none).
21
22 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
23 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
24 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
25
26 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
27 with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
28 running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
29 up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
30
31 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
32 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
33
34 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
35 screwed.
36
37 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed e.g. by
38 other frontends.
39
40 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
41 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
42 (fixes segfault on device changes)
43
44 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the "View"
45 main menu.
46
47 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
48
49 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
50
51 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel strip,
52 particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
53
54 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
55 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
56
57
58 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
59
60 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names in a
61 very fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the respective
62 name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
63
64 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
65 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
66
67 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
68 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
69
70 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
71 creating a new sampler channel.
72
73 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
74
75 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
76 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
77 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
78 first time).
79
80 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
81 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
82
83 * Added Windows file path support.
84
85 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
86 under win32.
87
88 * Qt4 port of the application.
89
90
91 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
92
93 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
94 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
95 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
96 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
97
98 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
99 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
100 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
101 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
102
103 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
104 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
105 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
106
107 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
108
109
110 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
111
112 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
113 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
114 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
115
116 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
117
118 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
119 the session state, only at code-level.
120
121 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
122 existing instrument file name.
123
124 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
125 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
126 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
127 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
128 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
129 corrected some tooltip text strings.
130
131 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
132 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
133 window managers.
134
135 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
136 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
137 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
138 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
139
140 * GPL address update.
141
142
143 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
144
145 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
146 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
147
148 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
149
150 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
151 installation paths have been added to configure command
152 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
153
154 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
155 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
156 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
157 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
158 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
159
160 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
161 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
162 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
163 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
164
165 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
166
167 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
168 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
169
170 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
171 title name prefix.
172
173 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
174 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
175 generated at configure time.
176
177 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
178 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
179 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
180 argument have some effect on X11.
181
182 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
183
184 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
185 compiled with -no-stl.
186
187
188 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
189
190 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
191 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
192 one, while on qjackctl).
193
194 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
195 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
196
197
198 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
199
200 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
201 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
202
203 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
204 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
205 info updates.
206
207 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
208 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
209 device dialog.
210
211 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
212
213 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
214 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
215 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
216 Mayat, for pointing these out).
217
218
219 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
220
221 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
222
223 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
224 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
225 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
226
227 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
228 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
229
230 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
231 an instrument.
232
233 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
234
235
236 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
237
238 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
239 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
240 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
241 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
242
243 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
244 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
245 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
246
247 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
248 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
249
250 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
251
252 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
253 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
254 change information are now also posted to messages window.
255
256 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
257 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
258 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
259 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
260
261 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
262 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
263 sampler instrument file.
264
265 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
266 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
267 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
268 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
269
270 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
271 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
272 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
273
274 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
275 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
276 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
277 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
278
279
280 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
281
282 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
283 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
284 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
285
286 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
287 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
288 following common user-interface guidelines.
289
290 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
291 control structures.
292
293 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
294
295 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
296 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
297 channel (omni mode).
298
299 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
300 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
301
302 * Minor configure fixes.
303
304
305 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
306
307 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
308
309 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
310 and on session file save.
311
312 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
313 on create time.
314
315 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
316
317
318 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
319
320 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
321 over the empty workspace area.
322
323 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
324 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
325 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
326 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
327
328 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
329 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
330
331 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
332 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
333
334 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
335 each sampler channel strip.
336
337 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
338 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
339
340 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
341 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
342
343 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
344 new sampler channel strip.
345
346 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
347 suggested in the following lines:
348
349 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
350 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
351 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
352 LOAD ENGINE ...
353 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
354 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
355
356
357 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
