6 SVN TRUNK
7
8 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
9
10 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
11
12 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
13 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
14
15 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
16
17 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
18
19 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
20
21 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
22
23 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
24 and make.
25
26 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
27 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
28 Debian 6.
29
30 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
31 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
32
33 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
34 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
35 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
36 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
37
38 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
39
40 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
41 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
42 wrong main widget hidden state.
43
44 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
45
46 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
47 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
48 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
49 targets (--enable-debug).
50
51 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
52
53 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
54 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
55 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
56
57 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
58 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
59
60 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
61 a menu separator has been added.
62
63 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
64 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
65
66 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
67 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
68 lame green solid background :).
69
70 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
71 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
72
73 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
74
75
76 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
77
78 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
79 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
80 ever may follow ;)
81
82 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
83
84 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
85 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
86 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
87 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
88 a sampler the next time.
89
90 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
91
92 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
93
94 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
95 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
96 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
97 (default none).
98
99 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
100 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
101 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
102
103 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
104 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
105 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
106 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
107
108 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
109 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
110
111 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
112 screwed.
113
114 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
115 e.g. by other frontends.
116
117 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
118 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
119 (fixes segfault on device changes)
120
121 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
122 "View" main menu.
123
124 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
125
126 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
127
128 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
129 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
130
131 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
132 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
133
134
135 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
136
137 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
138 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
139 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
140 default.
141
142 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
143 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
144
145 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
146 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
147
148 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
149 creating a new sampler channel.
150
151 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
152
153 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
154 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
155 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
156 first time).
157
158 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
159 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
160
161 * Added Windows file path support.
162
163 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
164 under win32.
165
166 * Qt4 port of the application.
167
168
169 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
170
171 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
172 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
173 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
174 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
175
176 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
177 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
178 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
179 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
180
181 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
182 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
183 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
184
185 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
186
187
188 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
189
190 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
191 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
192 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
193
194 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
195
196 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
197 the session state, only at code-level.
198
199 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
200 existing instrument file name.
201
202 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
203 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
204 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
205 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
206 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
207 corrected some tooltip text strings.
208
209 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
210 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
211 window managers.
212
213 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
214 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
215 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
216 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
217
218 * GPL address update.
219
220
221 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
222
223 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
224 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
225
226 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
227
228 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
229 installation paths have been added to configure command
230 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
231
232 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
233 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
234 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
235 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
236 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
237
238 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
239 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
240 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
241 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
242
243 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
244
245 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
246 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
247
248 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
249 title name prefix.
250
251 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
252 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
253 generated at configure time.
254
255 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
256 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
257 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
258 argument have some effect on X11.
259
260 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
261
262 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
263 compiled with -no-stl.
264
265
266 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
267
268 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
269 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
270 one, while on qjackctl).
271
272 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
273 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
274
275
276 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
277
278 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
279 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
280
281 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
282 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
283 info updates.
284
285 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
286 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
287 device dialog.
288
289 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
290
291 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
292 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
293 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
294 Mayat, for pointing these out).
295
296
297 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
298
299 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
300
301 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
302 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
303 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
304
305 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
306 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
307
308 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
309 an instrument.
310
311 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
312
313
314 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
315
316 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
317 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
318 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
319 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
320
321 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
322 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
323 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
324
325 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
326 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
327
328 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
329
330 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
331 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
332 change information are now also posted to messages window.
333
334 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
335 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
336 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
337 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
338
339 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
340 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
341 sampler instrument file.
342
343 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
344 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
345 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
346 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
347
348 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
349 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
350 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
351
352 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
353 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
354 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
355 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
356
357
358 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
359
360 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
361 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
362 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
363
364 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
365 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
366 following common user-interface guidelines.
367
368 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
369 control structures.
370
371 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
372
373 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
374 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
375 channel (omni mode).
376
377 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
378 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
379
380 * Minor configure fixes.
381
382
383 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
384
385 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
386
387 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
388 and on session file save.
389
390 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
391 on create time.
392
393 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
394
395
396 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
397
398 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
399 over the empty workspace area.
400
401 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
402 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
403 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
404 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
405
406 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
407 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
408
409 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
410 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
411
412 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
413 each sampler channel strip.
414
415 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
416 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
417
418 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
419 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
420
421 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
422 new sampler channel strip.
423
424 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
425 suggested in the following lines:
426
427 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
428 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
429 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
430 LOAD ENGINE ...
431 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
432 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
433
434
435 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
