4 ChangeLog
5
6 SVN TRUNK
7
8 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
9
10 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
11
12 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
13
14 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
15
16 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
17 and make.
18
19 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
20 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
21 Debian 6.
22
23 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
24 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
25
26 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
27 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
28 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
29 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
30
31 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
32
33 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
34 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
35 wrong main widget hidden state.
36
37 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
38
39 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
40 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
41 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
42 targets (--enable-debug).
43
44 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
45
46 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
47 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
48 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
49
50 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
51 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
52
53 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
54 a menu separator has been added.
55
56 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
57 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
58
59 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
60 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
61 lame green solid background :).
62
63 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
64 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
65
66 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
67
68
69 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
70
71 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
72 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
73 ever may follow ;)
74
75 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
76
77 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
78 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
79 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
80 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
81 a sampler the next time.
82
83 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
84
85 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
86
87 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
88 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
89 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
90 (default none).
91
92 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
93 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
94 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
95
96 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
97 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
98 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
99 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
100
101 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
102 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
103
104 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
105 screwed.
106
107 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
108 e.g. by other frontends.
109
110 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
111 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
112 (fixes segfault on device changes)
113
114 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
115 "View" main menu.
116
117 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
118
119 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
120
121 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
122 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
123
124 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
125 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
126
127
128 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
129
130 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
131 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
132 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
133 default.
134
135 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
136 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
137
138 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
139 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
140
141 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
142 creating a new sampler channel.
143
144 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
145
146 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
147 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
148 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
149 first time).
150
151 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
152 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
153
154 * Added Windows file path support.
155
156 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
157 under win32.
158
159 * Qt4 port of the application.
160
161
162 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
163
164 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
165 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
166 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
167 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
168
169 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
170 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
171 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
172 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
173
174 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
175 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
176 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
177
178 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
179
180
181 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
182
183 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
184 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
185 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
186
187 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
188
189 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
190 the session state, only at code-level.
191
192 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
193 existing instrument file name.
194
195 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
196 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
197 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
198 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
199 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
200 corrected some tooltip text strings.
201
202 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
203 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
204 window managers.
205
206 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
207 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
208 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
209 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
210
211 * GPL address update.
212
213
214 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
215
216 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
217 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
218
219 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
220
221 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
222 installation paths have been added to configure command
223 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
224
225 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
226 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
227 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
228 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
229 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
230
231 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
232 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
233 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
234 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
235
236 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
237
238 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
239 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
240
241 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
242 title name prefix.
243
244 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
245 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
246 generated at configure time.
247
248 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
249 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
250 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
251 argument have some effect on X11.
252
253 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
254
255 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
256 compiled with -no-stl.
257
258
259 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
260
261 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
262 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
263 one, while on qjackctl).
264
265 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
266 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
267
268
269 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
270
271 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
272 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
273
274 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
275 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
276 info updates.
277
278 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
279 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
280 device dialog.
281
282 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
283
284 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
285 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
286 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
287 Mayat, for pointing these out).
288
289
290 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
291
292 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
293
294 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
295 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
296 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
297
298 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
299 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
300
301 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
302 an instrument.
303
304 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
305
306
307 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
308
309 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
310 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
311 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
312 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
313
314 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
315 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
316 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
317
318 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
319 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
320
321 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
322
323 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
324 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
325 change information are now also posted to messages window.
326
327 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
328 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
329 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
330 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
331
332 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
333 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
334 sampler instrument file.
335
336 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
337 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
338 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
339 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
340
341 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
342 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
343 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
344
345 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
346 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
347 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
348 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
349
350
351 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
352
353 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
354 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
355 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
356
357 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
358 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
359 following common user-interface guidelines.
360
361 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
362 control structures.
363
364 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
365
366 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
367 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
368 channel (omni mode).
369
370 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
371 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
372
373 * Minor configure fixes.
374
375
376 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
377
378 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
379
380 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
381 and on session file save.
382
383 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
384 on create time.
385
386 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
387
388
389 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
390
391 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
392 over the empty workspace area.
393
394 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
395 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
396 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
397 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
398
399 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
400 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
401
402 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
403 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
404
405 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
406 each sampler channel strip.
407
408 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
409 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
410
411 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
412 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
413
414 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
415 new sampler channel strip.
416
417 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
418 suggested in the following lines:
419
420 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
421 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
422 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
423 LOAD ENGINE ...
424 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
425 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
426
427
428 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
429
