6 SVN HEAD
7
8 - Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
9 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
10
11 - Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
12
13
14 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
15
16 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
17 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
18 ever may follow ;)
19
20 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
21
22 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
23 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
24 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
25 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
26 a sampler the next time.
27
28 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
29
30 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
31
32 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
33 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
34 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
35 (default none).
36
37 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
38 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
39 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
40
41 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
42 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
43 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
44 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
45
46 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
47 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
48
49 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
50 screwed.
51
52 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
53 e.g. by other frontends.
54
55 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
56 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
57 (fixes segfault on device changes)
58
59 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
60 "View" main menu.
61
62 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
63
64 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
65
66 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
67 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
68
69 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
70 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
71
72
73 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
74
75 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
76 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
77 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
78 default.
79
80 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
81 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
82
83 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
84 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
85
86 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
87 creating a new sampler channel.
88
89 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
90
91 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
92 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
93 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
94 first time).
95
96 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
97 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
98
99 * Added Windows file path support.
100
101 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
102 under win32.
103
104 * Qt4 port of the application.
105
106
107 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
108
109 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
110 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
111 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
112 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
113
114 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
115 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
116 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
117 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
118
119 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
120 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
121 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
122
123 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
124
125
126 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
127
128 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
129 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
130 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
131
132 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
133
134 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
135 the session state, only at code-level.
136
137 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
138 existing instrument file name.
139
140 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
141 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
142 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
143 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
144 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
145 corrected some tooltip text strings.
146
147 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
148 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
149 window managers.
150
151 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
152 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
153 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
154 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
155
156 * GPL address update.
157
158
159 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
160
161 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
162 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
163
164 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
165
166 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
167 installation paths have been added to configure command
168 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
169
170 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
171 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
172 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
173 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
174 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
175
176 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
177 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
178 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
179 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
180
181 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
182
183 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
184 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
185
186 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
187 title name prefix.
188
189 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
190 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
191 generated at configure time.
192
193 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
194 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
195 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
196 argument have some effect on X11.
197
198 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
199
200 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
201 compiled with -no-stl.
202
203
204 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
205
206 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
207 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
208 one, while on qjackctl).
209
210 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
211 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
212
213
214 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
215
216 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
217 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
218
219 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
220 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
221 info updates.
222
223 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
224 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
225 device dialog.
226
227 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
228
229 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
230 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
231 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
232 Mayat, for pointing these out).
233
234
235 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
236
237 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
238
239 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
240 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
241 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
242
243 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
244 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
245
246 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
247 an instrument.
248
249 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
250
251
252 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
253
254 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
255 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
256 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
257 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
258
259 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
260 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
261 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
262
263 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
264 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
265
266 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
267
268 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
269 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
270 change information are now also posted to messages window.
271
272 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
273 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
274 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
275 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
276
277 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
278 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
279 sampler instrument file.
280
281 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
282 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
283 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
284 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
285
286 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
287 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
288 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
289
290 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
291 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
292 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
293 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
294
295
296 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
297
298 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
299 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
300 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
301
302 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
303 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
304 following common user-interface guidelines.
305
306 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
307 control structures.
308
309 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
310
311 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
312 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
313 channel (omni mode).
314
315 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
316 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
317
318 * Minor configure fixes.
319
320
321 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
322
323 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
324
325 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
326 and on session file save.
327
328 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
329 on create time.
330
331 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
332
333
334 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
335
336 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
337 over the empty workspace area.
338
339 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
340 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
341 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
342 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
343
344 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
345 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
346
347 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
348 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
349
350 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
351 each sampler channel strip.
352
353 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
354 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
355
356 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
357 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
358
359 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
360 new sampler channel strip.
361
362 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
363 suggested in the following lines:
364
365 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
366 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
367 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
368 LOAD ENGINE ...
369 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
370 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
371
372
373 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
