6 SVN TRUNK
7
8 * Translations install directory change. (EXPERIMENTAL)
9
10 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
11 (EXPERIMENTAL)
12
13 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
14 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
15 instruments of the same file.
16
17 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new libdir
18 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
19
20
21 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
22
23 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
24
25 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
26
27 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
28 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
29
30 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
31
32 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
33
34 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
35
36 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
37 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
38
39 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
40
41 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
42
43 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
44
45 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
46
47 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
48 and make.
49
50 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
51 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
52 Debian 6.
53
54 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
55 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
56
57 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
58 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
59 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
60 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
61
62 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
63
64 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
65 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
66 wrong main widget hidden state.
67
68 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
69
70 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
71 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
72 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
73 targets (--enable-debug).
74
75 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
76
77 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
78 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
79 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
80
81 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
82 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
83
84 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
85 a menu separator has been added.
86
87 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
88 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
89
90 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
91 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
92 lame green solid background :).
93
94 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
95 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
96
97 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
98
99
100 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
101
102 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
103 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
104 ever may follow ;)
105
106 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
107
108 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
109 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
110 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
111 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
112 a sampler the next time.
113
114 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
115
116 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
117
118 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
119 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
120 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
121 (default none).
122
123 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
124 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
125 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
126
127 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
128 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
129 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
130 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
131
132 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
133 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
134
135 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
136 screwed.
137
138 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
139 e.g. by other frontends.
140
141 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
142 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
143 (fixes segfault on device changes)
144
145 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
146 "View" main menu.
147
148 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
149
150 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
151
152 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
153 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
154
155 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
156 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
157
158
159 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
160
161 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
162 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
163 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
164 default.
165
166 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
167 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
168
169 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
170 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
171
172 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
173 creating a new sampler channel.
174
175 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
176
177 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
178 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
179 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
180 first time).
181
182 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
183 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
184
185 * Added Windows file path support.
186
187 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
188 under win32.
189
190 * Qt4 port of the application.
191
192
193 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
194
195 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
196 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
197 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
198 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
199
200 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
201 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
202 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
203 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
204
205 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
206 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
207 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
208
209 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
210
211
212 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
213
214 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
215 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
216 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
217
218 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
219
220 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
221 the session state, only at code-level.
222
223 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
224 existing instrument file name.
225
226 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
227 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
228 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
229 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
230 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
231 corrected some tooltip text strings.
232
233 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
234 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
235 window managers.
236
237 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
238 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
239 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
240 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
241
242 * GPL address update.
243
244
245 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
246
247 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
248 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
249
250 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
251
252 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
253 installation paths have been added to configure command
254 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
255
256 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
257 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
258 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
259 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
260 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
261
262 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
263 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
264 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
265 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
266
267 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
268
269 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
270 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
271
272 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
273 title name prefix.
274
275 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
276 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
277 generated at configure time.
278
279 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
280 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
281 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
282 argument have some effect on X11.
283
284 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
285
286 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
287 compiled with -no-stl.
288
289
290 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
291
292 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
293 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
294 one, while on qjackctl).
295
296 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
297 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
298
299
300 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
301
302 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
303 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
304
305 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
306 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
307 info updates.
308
309 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
310 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
311 device dialog.
312
313 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
314
315 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
316 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
317 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
318 Mayat, for pointing these out).
319
320
321 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
322
323 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
324
325 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
326 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
327 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
328
329 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
330 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
331
332 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
333 an instrument.
334
335 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
336
337
338 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
339
340 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
341 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
342 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
343 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
344
345 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
346 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
347 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
348
349 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
350 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
351
352 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
353
354 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
355 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
356 change information are now also posted to messages window.
357
358 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
359 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
360 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
361 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
362
363 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
364 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
365 sampler instrument file.
366
367 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
368 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
369 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
370 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
371
372 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
373 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
374 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
375
376 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
377 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
378 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
379 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
380
381
382 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
383
384 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
385 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
386 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
387
388 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
389 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
390 following common user-interface guidelines.
391
392 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
393 control structures.
394
395 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
396
397 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
398 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
399 channel (omni mode).
400
401 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
402 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
403
404 * Minor configure fixes.
405
406
407 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
408
409 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
410
411 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
412 and on session file save.
413
414 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
415 on create time.
416
417 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
418
419
420 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
421
422 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
423 over the empty workspace area.
424
425 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
426 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
427 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
428 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
429
430 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
431 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
432
433 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
434 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
435
436 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
437 each sampler channel strip.
438
439 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
440 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
441
442 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
443 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
444
445 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
446 new sampler channel strip.
447
448 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
449 suggested in the following lines:
450
451 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
452 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
453 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
454 LOAD ENGINE ...
455 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
456 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
457
458
459 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
