8 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
9 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
10 Debian 6.
11
12 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
13 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
14
15 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
16 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
17 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
18 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
19
20 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
21
22 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
23 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
24 wrong main widget hidden state.
25
26 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
27
28 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
29 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
30 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
31 targets (--enable-debug).
32
33 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
34
35 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
36 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
37 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
38
39 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
40 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
41
42 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
43 a menu separator has been added.
44
45 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
46 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
47
48 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
49 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
50 lame green solid background :).
51
52 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
53 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
54
55 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
56
57
58 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
59
60 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
61 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
62 ever may follow ;)
63
64 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
65
66 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
67 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
68 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
69 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
70 a sampler the next time.
71
72 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
73
74 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
75
76 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
77 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
78 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
79 (default none).
80
81 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
82 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
83 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
84
85 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
86 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
87 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
88 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
89
90 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
91 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
92
93 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
94 screwed.
95
96 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
97 e.g. by other frontends.
98
99 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
100 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
101 (fixes segfault on device changes)
102
103 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
104 "View" main menu.
105
106 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
107
108 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
109
110 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
111 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
112
113 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
114 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
115
116
117 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
118
119 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
120 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
121 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
122 default.
123
124 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
125 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
126
127 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
128 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
129
130 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
131 creating a new sampler channel.
132
133 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
134
135 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
136 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
137 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
138 first time).
139
140 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
141 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
142
143 * Added Windows file path support.
144
145 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
146 under win32.
147
148 * Qt4 port of the application.
149
150
151 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
152
153 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
154 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
155 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
156 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
157
158 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
159 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
160 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
161 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
162
163 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
164 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
165 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
166
167 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
168
169
170 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
171
172 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
173 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
174 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
175
176 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
177
178 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
179 the session state, only at code-level.
180
181 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
182 existing instrument file name.
183
184 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
185 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
186 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
187 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
188 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
189 corrected some tooltip text strings.
190
191 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
192 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
193 window managers.
194
195 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
196 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
197 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
198 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
199
200 * GPL address update.
201
202
203 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
204
205 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
206 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
207
208 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
209
210 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
211 installation paths have been added to configure command
212 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
213
214 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
215 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
216 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
217 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
218 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
219
220 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
221 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
222 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
223 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
224
225 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
226
227 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
228 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
229
230 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
231 title name prefix.
232
233 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
234 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
235 generated at configure time.
236
237 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
238 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
239 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
240 argument have some effect on X11.
241
242 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
243
244 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
245 compiled with -no-stl.
246
247
248 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
249
250 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
251 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
252 one, while on qjackctl).
253
254 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
255 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
256
257
258 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
259
260 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
261 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
262
263 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
264 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
265 info updates.
266
267 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
268 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
269 device dialog.
270
271 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
272
273 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
274 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
275 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
276 Mayat, for pointing these out).
277
278
279 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
280
281 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
282
283 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
284 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
285 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
286
287 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
288 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
289
290 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
291 an instrument.
292
293 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
294
295
296 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
297
298 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
299 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
300 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
301 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
302
303 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
304 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
305 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
306
307 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
308 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
309
310 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
311
312 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
313 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
314 change information are now also posted to messages window.
315
316 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
317 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
318 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
319 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
320
321 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
322 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
323 sampler instrument file.
324
325 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
326 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
327 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
328 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
329
330 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
331 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
332 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
333
334 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
335 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
336 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
337 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
338
339
340 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
341
342 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
343 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
344 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
345
346 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
347 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
348 following common user-interface guidelines.
349
350 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
351 control structures.
352
353 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
354
355 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
356 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
357 channel (omni mode).
358
359 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
360 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
361
362 * Minor configure fixes.
363
364
365 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
366
367 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
368
369 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
370 and on session file save.
371
372 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
373 on create time.
374
375 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
376
377
378 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
379
380 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
381 over the empty workspace area.
382
383 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
384 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
385 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
386 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
387
388 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
389 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
390
391 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
392 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
393
394 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
395 each sampler channel strip.
396
397 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
398 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
399
400 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
401 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
402
403 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
404 new sampler channel strip.
405
406 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
407 suggested in the following lines:
408
409 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
410 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
411 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
412 LOAD ENGINE ...
413 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
414 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
415
416
417 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
