1 Qsampler - A LinuxSampler Qt GUI Interface
2 ------------------------------------------

4 ChangeLog
5
6 GIT HEAD
7
8 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
9 main toolbar orientation.
10
11 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
12 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available. (EXPERIMENTAL)
13
14 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new includedir.
15
16 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
17 debian, thanks).
18
19 * Translations install directory change. (EXPERIMENTAL)
20
21 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
22 (EXPERIMENTAL)
23
24 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
25 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
26 instruments of the same file.
27
28 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new libdir
29 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
30
31 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
32
33
34 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
35
36 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
37
38 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
39
40 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
41 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
42
43 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
44
45 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
46
47 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
48
49 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
50 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
51
52 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
53
54 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
55
56 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
57
58 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
59
60 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
61 and make.
62
63 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
64 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
65 Debian 6.
66
67 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
68 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
69
70 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
71 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
72 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
73 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
74
75 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
76
77 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
78 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
79 wrong main widget hidden state.
80
81 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
82
83 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
84 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
85 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
86 targets (--enable-debug).
87
88 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
89
90 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
91 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
92 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
93
94 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
95 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
96
97 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
98 a menu separator has been added.
99
100 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
101 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
102
103 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
104 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
105 lame green solid background :).
106
107 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
108 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
109
110 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
111
112
113 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
114
115 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
116 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
117 ever may follow ;)
118
119 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
120
121 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
122 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
123 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
124 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
125 a sampler the next time.
126
127 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
128
129 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
130
131 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
132 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
133 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
134 (default none).
135
136 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
137 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
138 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
139
140 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
141 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
142 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
143 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
144
145 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
146 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
147
148 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
149 screwed.
150
151 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
152 e.g. by other frontends.
153
154 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
155 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
156 (fixes segfault on device changes)
157
158 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
159 "View" main menu.
160
161 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
162
163 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
164
165 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
166 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
167
168 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
169 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
170
171
172 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
173
174 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
175 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
176 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
177 default.
178
179 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
180 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
181
182 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
183 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
184
185 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
186 creating a new sampler channel.
187
188 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
189
190 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
191 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
192 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
193 first time).
194
195 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
196 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
197
198 * Added Windows file path support.
199
200 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
201 under win32.
202
203 * Qt4 port of the application.
204
205
206 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
207
208 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
209 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
210 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
211 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
212
213 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
214 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
215 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
216 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
217
218 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
219 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
220 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
221
222 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
223
224
225 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
226
227 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
228 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
229 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
230
231 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
232
233 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
234 the session state, only at code-level.
235
236 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
237 existing instrument file name.
238
239 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
240 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
241 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
242 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
243 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
244 corrected some tooltip text strings.
245
246 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
247 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
248 window managers.
249
250 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
251 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
252 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
253 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
254
255 * GPL address update.
256
257
258 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
259
260 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
261 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
262
263 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
264
265 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
266 installation paths have been added to configure command
267 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
268
269 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
270 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
271 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
272 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
273 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
274
275 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
276 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
277 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
278 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
279
280 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
281
282 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
283 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
284
285 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
286 title name prefix.
287
288 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
289 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
290 generated at configure time.
291
292 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
293 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
294 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
295 argument have some effect on X11.
296
297 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
298
299 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
300 compiled with -no-stl.
301
302
303 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
304
305 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
306 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
307 one, while on qjackctl).
308
309 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
310 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
311
312
313 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
314
315 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
316 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
317
318 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
319 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
320 info updates.
321
322 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
323 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
324 device dialog.
325
326 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
327
328 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
329 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
330 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
331 Mayat, for pointing these out).
332
333
334 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
335
336 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
337
338 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
339 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
340 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
341
342 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
343 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
344
345 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
346 an instrument.
347
348 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
349
350
351 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
352
353 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
354 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
355 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
356 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
357
358 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
359 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
360 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
361
362 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
363 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
364
365 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
366
367 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
368 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
369 change information are now also posted to messages window.
370
371 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
372 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
373 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
374 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
375
376 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
377 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
378 sampler instrument file.
379
380 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
381 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
382 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
383 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
384
385 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
386 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
387 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
388
389 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
390 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
391 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
392 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
393
394
395 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
396
397 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
398 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
399 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
400
401 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
402 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
403 following common user-interface guidelines.
404
405 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
406 control structures.
407
408 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
409
410 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
411 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
412 channel (omni mode).
413
414 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
415 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
416
417 * Minor configure fixes.
418
419
420 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
421
422 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
423
424 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
425 and on session file save.
426
427 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
428 on create time.
429
430 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
431
432
433 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
434
435 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
436 over the empty workspace area.
437
438 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
439 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
440 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
441 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
442
443 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
444 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
445
446 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
447 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
448
449 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
450 each sampler channel strip.
451
452 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
453 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
454
455 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
456 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
457
458 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
459 new sampler channel strip.
460
461 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
462 suggested in the following lines:
463
464 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
465 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
466 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
467 LOAD ENGINE ...
468 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
469 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
470
471
472 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
