6 SVN TRUNK
7
8 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
9 (EXPERIMENTAL)
10
11 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
12 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
13 instruments of the same file.
14
15 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new libdir
16 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
17
18
19 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
20
21 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
22
23 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
24
25 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
26 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
27
28 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
29
30 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
31
32 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
33
34 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
35 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
36
37 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
38
39 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
40
41 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
42
43 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
44
45 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
46 and make.
47
48 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
49 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
50 Debian 6.
51
52 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
53 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
54
55 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
56 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
57 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
58 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
59
60 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
61
62 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
63 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
64 wrong main widget hidden state.
65
66 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
67
68 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
69 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
70 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
71 targets (--enable-debug).
72
73 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
74
75 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
76 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
77 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
78
79 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
80 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
81
82 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
83 a menu separator has been added.
84
85 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
86 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
87
88 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
89 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
90 lame green solid background :).
91
92 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
93 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
94
95 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
96
97
98 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
99
100 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
101 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
102 ever may follow ;)
103
104 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
105
106 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
107 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
108 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
109 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
110 a sampler the next time.
111
112 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
113
114 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
115
116 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
117 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
118 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
119 (default none).
120
121 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
122 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
123 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
124
125 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
126 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
127 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
128 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
129
130 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
131 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
132
133 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
134 screwed.
135
136 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
137 e.g. by other frontends.
138
139 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
140 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
141 (fixes segfault on device changes)
142
143 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
144 "View" main menu.
145
146 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
147
148 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
149
150 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
151 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
152
153 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
154 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
155
156
157 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
158
159 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
160 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
161 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
162 default.
163
164 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
165 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
166
167 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
168 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
169
170 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
171 creating a new sampler channel.
172
173 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
174
175 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
176 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
177 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
178 first time).
179
180 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
181 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
182
183 * Added Windows file path support.
184
185 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
186 under win32.
187
188 * Qt4 port of the application.
189
190
191 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
192
193 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
194 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
195 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
196 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
197
198 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
199 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
200 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
201 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
202
203 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
204 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
205 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
206
207 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
208
209
210 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
211
212 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
213 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
214 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
215
216 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
217
218 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
219 the session state, only at code-level.
220
221 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
222 existing instrument file name.
223
224 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
225 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
226 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
227 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
228 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
229 corrected some tooltip text strings.
230
231 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
232 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
233 window managers.
234
235 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
236 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
237 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
238 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
239
240 * GPL address update.
241
242
243 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
244
245 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
246 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
247
248 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
249
250 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
251 installation paths have been added to configure command
252 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
253
254 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
255 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
256 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
257 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
258 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
259
260 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
261 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
262 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
263 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
264
265 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
266
267 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
268 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
269
270 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
271 title name prefix.
272
273 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
274 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
275 generated at configure time.
276
277 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
278 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
279 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
280 argument have some effect on X11.
281
282 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
283
284 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
285 compiled with -no-stl.
286
287
288 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
289
290 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
291 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
292 one, while on qjackctl).
293
294 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
295 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
296
297
298 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
299
300 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
301 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
302
303 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
304 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
305 info updates.
306
307 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
308 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
309 device dialog.
310
311 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
312
313 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
314 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
315 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
316 Mayat, for pointing these out).
317
318
319 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
320
321 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
322
323 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
324 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
325 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
326
327 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
328 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
329
330 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
331 an instrument.
332
333 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
334
335
336 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
337
338 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
339 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
340 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
341 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
342
343 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
344 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
345 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
346
347 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
348 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
349
350 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
351
352 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
353 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
354 change information are now also posted to messages window.
355
356 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
357 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
358 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
359 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
360
361 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
362 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
363 sampler instrument file.
364
365 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
366 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
367 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
368 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
369
370 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
371 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
372 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
373
374 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
375 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
376 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
377 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
378
379
380 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
381
382 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
383 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
384 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
385
386 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
387 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
388 following common user-interface guidelines.
389
390 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
391 control structures.
392
393 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
394
395 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
396 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
397 channel (omni mode).
398
399 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
400 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
401
402 * Minor configure fixes.
403
404
405 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
406
407 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
408
409 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
410 and on session file save.
411
412 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
413 on create time.
414
415 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
416
417
418 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
419
420 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
421 over the empty workspace area.
422
423 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
424 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
425 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
426 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
427
428 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
429 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
430
431 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
432 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
433
434 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
435 each sampler channel strip.
436
437 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
438 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
439
440 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
441 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
442
443 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
444 new sampler channel strip.
445
446 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
447 suggested in the following lines:
448
449 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
450 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
451 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
452 LOAD ENGINE ...
453 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
454 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
455
456
457 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
