7
8 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
9
10 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
11 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
12 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
13
14 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
15 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
16
17 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
18 a menu separator has been added.
19
20 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
21 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
22
23 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
24 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
25 lame green solid background :).
26
27 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
28 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
29
30 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
31
32
33 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
34
35 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
36 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
37 ever may follow ;)
38
39 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
40
41 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
42 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
43 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
44 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
45 a sampler the next time.
46
47 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
48
49 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
50
51 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
52 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
53 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
54 (default none).
55
56 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
57 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
58 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
59
60 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
61 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
62 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
63 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
64
65 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
66 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
67
68 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
69 screwed.
70
71 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
72 e.g. by other frontends.
73
74 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
75 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
76 (fixes segfault on device changes)
77
78 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
79 "View" main menu.
80
81 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
82
83 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
84
85 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
86 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
87
88 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
89 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
90
91
92 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
93
94 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
95 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
96 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
97 default.
98
99 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
100 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
101
102 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
103 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
104
105 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
106 creating a new sampler channel.
107
108 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
109
110 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
111 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
112 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
113 first time).
114
115 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
116 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
117
118 * Added Windows file path support.
119
120 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
121 under win32.
122
123 * Qt4 port of the application.
124
125
126 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
127
128 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
129 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
130 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
131 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
132
133 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
134 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
135 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
136 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
137
138 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
139 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
140 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
141
142 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
143
144
145 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
146
147 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
148 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
149 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
150
151 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
152
153 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
154 the session state, only at code-level.
155
156 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
157 existing instrument file name.
158
159 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
160 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
161 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
162 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
163 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
164 corrected some tooltip text strings.
165
166 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
167 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
168 window managers.
169
170 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
171 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
172 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
173 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
174
175 * GPL address update.
176
177
178 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
179
180 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
181 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
182
183 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
184
185 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
186 installation paths have been added to configure command
187 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
188
189 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
190 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
191 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
192 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
193 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
194
195 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
196 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
197 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
198 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
199
200 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
201
202 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
203 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
204
205 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
206 title name prefix.
207
208 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
209 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
210 generated at configure time.
211
212 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
213 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
214 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
215 argument have some effect on X11.
216
217 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
218
219 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
220 compiled with -no-stl.
221
222
223 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
224
225 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
226 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
227 one, while on qjackctl).
228
229 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
230 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
231
232
233 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
234
235 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
236 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
237
238 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
239 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
240 info updates.
241
242 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
243 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
244 device dialog.
245
246 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
247
248 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
249 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
250 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
251 Mayat, for pointing these out).
252
253
254 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
255
256 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
257
258 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
259 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
260 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
261
262 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
263 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
264
265 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
266 an instrument.
267
268 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
269
270
271 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
272
273 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
274 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
275 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
276 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
277
278 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
279 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
280 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
281
282 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
283 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
284
285 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
286
287 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
288 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
289 change information are now also posted to messages window.
290
291 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
292 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
293 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
294 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
295
296 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
297 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
298 sampler instrument file.
299
300 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
301 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
302 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
303 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
304
305 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
306 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
307 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
308
309 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
310 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
311 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
312 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
313
314
315 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
316
317 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
318 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
319 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
320
321 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
322 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
323 following common user-interface guidelines.
324
325 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
326 control structures.
327
328 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
329
330 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
331 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
332 channel (omni mode).
333
334 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
335 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
336
337 * Minor configure fixes.
338
339
340 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
341
342 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
343
344 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
345 and on session file save.
346
347 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
348 on create time.
349
350 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
351
352
353 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
354
355 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
356 over the empty workspace area.
357
358 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
359 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
360 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
361 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
362
363 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
364 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
365
366 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
367 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
368
369 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
370 each sampler channel strip.
371
372 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
373 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
374
375 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
376 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
377
378 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
379 new sampler channel strip.
380
381 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
382 suggested in the following lines:
383
384 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
385 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
386 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
387 LOAD ENGINE ...
388 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
389 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
390
391
392 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
