8 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
9 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
10 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
11 targets (--enable-debug).
12
13 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
14
15 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
16 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
17 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
18
19 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
20 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
21
22 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
23 a menu separator has been added.
24
25 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
26 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
27
28 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
29 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
30 lame green solid background :).
31
32 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
33 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
34
35 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
36
37
38 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
39
40 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
41 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
42 ever may follow ;)
43
44 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
45
46 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
47 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
48 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
49 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
50 a sampler the next time.
51
52 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
53
54 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
55
56 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
57 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
58 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
59 (default none).
60
61 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
62 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
63 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
64
65 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
66 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
67 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
68 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
69
70 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
71 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
72
73 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
74 screwed.
75
76 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
77 e.g. by other frontends.
78
79 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
80 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
81 (fixes segfault on device changes)
82
83 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
84 "View" main menu.
85
86 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
87
88 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
89
90 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
91 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
92
93 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
94 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
95
96
97 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
98
99 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
100 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
101 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
102 default.
103
104 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
105 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
106
107 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
108 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
109
110 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
111 creating a new sampler channel.
112
113 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
114
115 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
116 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
117 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
118 first time).
119
120 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
121 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
122
123 * Added Windows file path support.
124
125 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
126 under win32.
127
128 * Qt4 port of the application.
129
130
131 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
132
133 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
134 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
135 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
136 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
137
138 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
139 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
140 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
141 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
142
143 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
144 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
145 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
146
147 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
148
149
150 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
151
152 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
153 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
154 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
155
156 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
157
158 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
159 the session state, only at code-level.
160
161 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
162 existing instrument file name.
163
164 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
165 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
166 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
167 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
168 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
169 corrected some tooltip text strings.
170
171 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
172 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
173 window managers.
174
175 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
176 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
177 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
178 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
179
180 * GPL address update.
181
182
183 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
184
185 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
186 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
187
188 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
189
190 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
191 installation paths have been added to configure command
192 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
193
194 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
195 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
196 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
197 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
198 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
199
200 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
201 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
202 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
203 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
204
205 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
206
207 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
208 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
209
210 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
211 title name prefix.
212
213 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
214 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
215 generated at configure time.
216
217 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
218 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
219 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
220 argument have some effect on X11.
221
222 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
223
224 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
225 compiled with -no-stl.
226
227
228 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
229
230 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
231 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
232 one, while on qjackctl).
233
234 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
235 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
236
237
238 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
239
240 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
241 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
242
243 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
244 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
245 info updates.
246
247 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
248 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
249 device dialog.
250
251 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
252
253 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
254 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
255 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
256 Mayat, for pointing these out).
257
258
259 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
260
261 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
262
263 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
264 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
265 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
266
267 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
268 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
269
270 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
271 an instrument.
272
273 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
274
275
276 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
277
278 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
279 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
280 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
281 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
282
283 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
284 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
285 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
286
287 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
288 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
289
290 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
291
292 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
293 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
294 change information are now also posted to messages window.
295
296 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
297 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
298 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
299 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
300
301 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
302 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
303 sampler instrument file.
304
305 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
306 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
307 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
308 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
309
310 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
311 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
312 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
313
314 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
315 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
316 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
317 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
318
319
320 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
321
322 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
323 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
324 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
325
326 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
327 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
328 following common user-interface guidelines.
329
330 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
331 control structures.
332
333 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
334
335 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
336 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
337 channel (omni mode).
338
339 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
340 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
341
342 * Minor configure fixes.
343
344
345 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
346
347 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
348
349 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
350 and on session file save.
351
352 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
353 on create time.
354
355 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
356
357
358 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
359
360 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
361 over the empty workspace area.
362
363 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
364 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
365 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
366 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
367
368 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
369 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
370
371 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
372 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
373
374 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
375 each sampler channel strip.
376
377 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
378 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
379
380 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
381 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
382
383 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
384 new sampler channel strip.
385
386 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
387 suggested in the following lines:
388
389 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
390 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
391 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
392 LOAD ENGINE ...
393 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
394 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
395
396
397 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
