8 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
9 a menu separator has been added.
10
11 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
12 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
13
14 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
15 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
16 lame green solid background :).
17
18 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
19 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
20
21 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
22
23
24 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
25
26 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
27 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
28 ever may follow ;)
29
30 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
31
32 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
33 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
34 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
35 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
36 a sampler the next time.
37
38 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
39
40 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
41
42 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
43 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
44 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
45 (default none).
46
47 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
48 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
49 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
50
51 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
52 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
53 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
54 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
55
56 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
57 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
58
59 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
60 screwed.
61
62 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
63 e.g. by other frontends.
64
65 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
66 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
67 (fixes segfault on device changes)
68
69 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
70 "View" main menu.
71
72 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
73
74 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
75
76 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
77 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
78
79 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
80 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
81
82
83 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
84
85 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
86 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
87 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
88 default.
89
90 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
91 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
92
93 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
94 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
95
96 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
97 creating a new sampler channel.
98
99 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
100
101 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
102 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
103 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
104 first time).
105
106 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
107 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
108
109 * Added Windows file path support.
110
111 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
112 under win32.
113
114 * Qt4 port of the application.
115
116
117 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
118
119 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
120 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
121 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
122 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
123
124 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
125 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
126 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
127 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
128
129 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
130 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
131 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
132
133 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
134
135
136 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
137
138 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
139 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
140 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
141
142 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
143
144 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
145 the session state, only at code-level.
146
147 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
148 existing instrument file name.
149
150 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
151 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
152 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
153 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
154 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
155 corrected some tooltip text strings.
156
157 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
158 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
159 window managers.
160
161 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
162 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
163 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
164 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
165
166 * GPL address update.
167
168
169 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
170
171 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
172 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
173
174 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
175
176 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
177 installation paths have been added to configure command
178 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
179
180 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
181 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
182 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
183 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
184 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
185
186 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
187 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
188 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
189 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
190
191 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
192
193 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
194 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
195
196 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
197 title name prefix.
198
199 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
200 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
201 generated at configure time.
202
203 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
204 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
205 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
206 argument have some effect on X11.
207
208 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
209
210 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
211 compiled with -no-stl.
212
213
214 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
215
216 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
217 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
218 one, while on qjackctl).
219
220 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
221 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
222
223
224 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
225
226 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
227 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
228
229 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
230 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
231 info updates.
232
233 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
234 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
235 device dialog.
236
237 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
238
239 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
240 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
241 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
242 Mayat, for pointing these out).
243
244
245 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
246
247 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
248
249 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
250 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
251 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
252
253 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
254 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
255
256 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
257 an instrument.
258
259 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
260
261
262 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
263
264 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
265 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
266 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
267 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
268
269 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
270 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
271 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
272
273 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
274 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
275
276 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
277
278 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
279 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
280 change information are now also posted to messages window.
281
282 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
283 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
284 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
285 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
286
287 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
288 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
289 sampler instrument file.
290
291 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
292 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
293 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
294 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
295
296 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
297 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
298 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
299
300 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
301 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
302 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
303 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
304
305
306 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
307
308 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
309 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
310 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
311
312 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
313 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
314 following common user-interface guidelines.
315
316 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
317 control structures.
318
319 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
320
321 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
322 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
323 channel (omni mode).
324
325 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
326 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
327
328 * Minor configure fixes.
329
330
331 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
332
333 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
334
335 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
336 and on session file save.
337
338 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
339 on create time.
340
341 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
342
343
344 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
345
346 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
347 over the empty workspace area.
348
349 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
350 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
351 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
352 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
353
354 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
355 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
356
357 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
358 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
359
360 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
361 each sampler channel strip.
362
363 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
364 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
365
366 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
367 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
368
369 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
370 new sampler channel strip.
371
372 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
373 suggested in the following lines:
374
375 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
376 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
377 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
378 LOAD ENGINE ...
379 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
380 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
381
382
383 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
