7
8 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
9
10 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
11 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
12
13 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
14
15 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
16
17 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
18
19 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
20
21 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
22 and make.
23
24 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
25 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
26 Debian 6.
27
28 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
29 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
30
31 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
32 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
33 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
34 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
35
36 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
37
38 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
39 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
40 wrong main widget hidden state.
41
42 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
43
44 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
45 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
46 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
47 targets (--enable-debug).
48
49 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
50
51 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
52 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
53 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
54
55 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
56 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
57
58 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
59 a menu separator has been added.
60
61 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
62 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
63
64 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
65 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
66 lame green solid background :).
67
68 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
69 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
70
71 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
72
73
74 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
75
76 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
77 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
78 ever may follow ;)
79
80 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
81
82 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
83 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
84 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
85 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
86 a sampler the next time.
87
88 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
89
90 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
91
92 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
93 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
94 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
95 (default none).
96
97 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
98 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
99 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
100
101 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
102 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
103 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
104 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
105
106 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
107 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
108
109 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
110 screwed.
111
112 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
113 e.g. by other frontends.
114
115 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
116 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
117 (fixes segfault on device changes)
118
119 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
120 "View" main menu.
121
122 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
123
124 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
125
126 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
127 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
128
129 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
130 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
131
132
133 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
134
135 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
136 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
137 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
138 default.
139
140 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
141 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
142
143 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
144 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
145
146 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
147 creating a new sampler channel.
148
149 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
150
151 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
152 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
153 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
154 first time).
155
156 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
157 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
158
159 * Added Windows file path support.
160
161 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
162 under win32.
163
164 * Qt4 port of the application.
165
166
167 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
168
169 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
170 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
171 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
172 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
173
174 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
175 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
176 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
177 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
178
179 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
180 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
181 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
182
183 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
184
185
186 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
187
188 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
189 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
190 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
191
192 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
193
194 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
195 the session state, only at code-level.
196
197 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
198 existing instrument file name.
199
200 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
201 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
202 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
203 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
204 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
205 corrected some tooltip text strings.
206
207 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
208 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
209 window managers.
210
211 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
212 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
213 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
214 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
215
216 * GPL address update.
217
218
219 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
220
221 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
222 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
223
224 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
225
226 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
227 installation paths have been added to configure command
228 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
229
230 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
231 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
232 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
233 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
234 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
235
236 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
237 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
238 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
239 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
240
241 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
242
243 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
244 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
245
246 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
247 title name prefix.
248
249 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
250 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
251 generated at configure time.
252
253 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
254 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
255 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
256 argument have some effect on X11.
257
258 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
259
260 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
261 compiled with -no-stl.
262
263
264 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
265
266 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
267 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
268 one, while on qjackctl).
269
270 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
271 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
272
273
274 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
275
276 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
277 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
278
279 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
280 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
281 info updates.
282
283 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
284 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
285 device dialog.
286
287 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
288
289 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
290 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
291 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
292 Mayat, for pointing these out).
293
294
295 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
296
297 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
298
299 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
300 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
301 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
302
303 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
304 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
305
306 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
307 an instrument.
308
309 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
310
311
312 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
313
314 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
315 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
316 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
317 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
318
319 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
320 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
321 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
322
323 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
324 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
325
326 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
327
328 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
329 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
330 change information are now also posted to messages window.
331
332 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
333 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
334 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
335 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
336
337 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
338 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
339 sampler instrument file.
340
341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
342 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
343 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
344 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
345
346 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
347 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
348 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
349
350 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
351 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
352 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
353 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
354
355
356 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
357
358 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
359 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
360 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
361
362 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
363 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
364 following common user-interface guidelines.
365
366 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
367 control structures.
368
369 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
370
371 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
372 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
373 channel (omni mode).
374
375 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
376 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
377
378 * Minor configure fixes.
379
380
381 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
382
383 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
384
385 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
386 and on session file save.
387
388 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
389 on create time.
390
391 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
392
393
394 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
395
396 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
397 over the empty workspace area.
398
399 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
400 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
401 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
402 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
403
404 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
405 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
406
407 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
408 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
409
410 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
411 each sampler channel strip.
412
413 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
414 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
415
416 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
417 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
418
419 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
420 new sampler channel strip.
421
422 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
423 suggested in the following lines:
424
425 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
426 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
427 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
428 LOAD ENGINE ...
429 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
430 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
431
432
433 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
