7
8 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
9
10 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
11 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
12
13 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
14
15 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
16
17 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
18
19 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
20 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
21
22 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
23
24 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
25
26 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
27
28 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
29
30 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
31 and make.
32
33 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
34 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
35 Debian 6.
36
37 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
38 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
39
40 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
41 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
42 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
43 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
44
45 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
46
47 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
48 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
49 wrong main widget hidden state.
50
51 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
52
53 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
54 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
55 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
56 targets (--enable-debug).
57
58 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
59
60 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
61 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
62 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
63
64 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
65 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
66
67 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
68 a menu separator has been added.
69
70 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
71 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
72
73 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
74 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
75 lame green solid background :).
76
77 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
78 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
79
80 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
81
82
83 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
84
85 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
86 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
87 ever may follow ;)
88
89 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
90
91 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
92 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
93 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
94 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
95 a sampler the next time.
96
97 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
98
99 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
100
101 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
102 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
103 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
104 (default none).
105
106 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
107 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
108 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
109
110 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
111 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
112 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
113 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
114
115 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
116 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
117
118 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
119 screwed.
120
121 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
122 e.g. by other frontends.
123
124 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
125 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
126 (fixes segfault on device changes)
127
128 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
129 "View" main menu.
130
131 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
132
133 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
134
135 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
136 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
137
138 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
139 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
140
141
142 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
143
144 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
145 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
146 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
147 default.
148
149 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
150 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
151
152 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
153 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
154
155 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
156 creating a new sampler channel.
157
158 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
159
160 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
161 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
162 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
163 first time).
164
165 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
166 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
167
168 * Added Windows file path support.
169
170 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
171 under win32.
172
173 * Qt4 port of the application.
174
175
176 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
177
178 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
179 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
180 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
181 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
182
183 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
184 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
185 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
186 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
187
188 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
189 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
190 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
191
192 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
193
194
195 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
196
197 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
198 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
199 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
200
201 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
202
203 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
204 the session state, only at code-level.
205
206 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
207 existing instrument file name.
208
209 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
210 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
211 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
212 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
213 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
214 corrected some tooltip text strings.
215
216 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
217 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
218 window managers.
219
220 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
221 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
222 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
223 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
224
225 * GPL address update.
226
227
228 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
229
230 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
231 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
232
233 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
234
235 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
236 installation paths have been added to configure command
237 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
238
239 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
240 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
241 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
242 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
243 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
244
245 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
246 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
247 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
248 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
249
250 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
251
252 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
253 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
254
255 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
256 title name prefix.
257
258 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
259 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
260 generated at configure time.
261
262 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
263 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
264 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
265 argument have some effect on X11.
266
267 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
268
269 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
270 compiled with -no-stl.
271
272
273 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
274
275 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
276 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
277 one, while on qjackctl).
278
279 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
280 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
281
282
283 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
284
285 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
286 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
287
288 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
289 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
290 info updates.
291
292 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
293 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
294 device dialog.
295
296 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
297
298 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
299 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
300 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
301 Mayat, for pointing these out).
302
303
304 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
305
306 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
307
308 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
309 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
310 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
311
312 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
313 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
314
315 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
316 an instrument.
317
318 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
319
320
321 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
322
323 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
324 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
325 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
326 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
327
328 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
329 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
330 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
331
332 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
333 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
334
335 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
336
337 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
338 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
339 change information are now also posted to messages window.
340
341 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
342 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
343 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
344 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
345
346 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
347 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
348 sampler instrument file.
349
350 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
351 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
352 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
353 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
354
355 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
356 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
357 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
358
359 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
360 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
361 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
362 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
363
364
365 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
366
367 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
368 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
369 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
370
371 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
372 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
373 following common user-interface guidelines.
374
375 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
376 control structures.
377
378 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
379
380 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
381 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
382 channel (omni mode).
383
384 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
385 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
386
387 * Minor configure fixes.
388
389
390 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
391
392 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
393
394 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
395 and on session file save.
396
397 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
398 on create time.
399
400 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
401
402
403 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
404
405 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
406 over the empty workspace area.
407
408 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
409 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
410 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
411 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
412
413 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
414 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
415
416 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
417 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
418
419 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
420 each sampler channel strip.
421
422 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
423 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
424
425 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
426 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
427
428 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
429 new sampler channel strip.
430
431 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
432 suggested in the following lines:
433
434 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
435 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
436 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
437 LOAD ENGINE ...
438 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
439 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
440
441
442 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
