7 GIT HEAD
8
9 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
10
11 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
12 of the nagging warning/error message boxes. (EXPERIMENTAL)
13
14 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
15
16 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
17 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
18
19 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
20 main toolbar orientation.
21
22 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
23 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available. (EXPERIMENTAL)
24
25 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new includedir.
26
27 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
28 debian, thanks).
29
30 * Translations install directory change. (EXPERIMENTAL)
31
32 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
33 (EXPERIMENTAL)
34
35 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
36 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
37 instruments of the same file.
38
39 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new libdir
40 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
41
42
43 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
44
45 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
46
47 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
48
49 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
50 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
51
52 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
53
54 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
55
56 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
57
58 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
59 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
60
61 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
62
63 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
64
65 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
66
67 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
68
69 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
70 and make.
71
72 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
73 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
74 Debian 6.
75
76 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
77 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
78
79 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
80 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
81 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
82 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
83
84 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
85
86 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
87 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
88 wrong main widget hidden state.
89
90 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
91
92 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
93 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
94 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
95 targets (--enable-debug).
96
97 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
98
99 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
100 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
101 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
102
103 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
104 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
105
106 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
107 a menu separator has been added.
108
109 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
110 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
111
112 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
113 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
114 lame green solid background :).
115
116 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
117 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
118
119 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
120
121
122 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
123
124 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
125 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
126 ever may follow ;)
127
128 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
129
130 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
131 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
132 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
133 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
134 a sampler the next time.
135
136 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
137
138 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
139
140 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
141 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
142 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
143 (default none).
144
145 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
146 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
147 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
148
149 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
150 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
151 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
152 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
153
154 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
155 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
156
157 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
158 screwed.
159
160 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
161 e.g. by other frontends.
162
163 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
164 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
165 (fixes segfault on device changes)
166
167 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
168 "View" main menu.
169
170 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
171
172 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
173
174 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
175 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
176
177 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
178 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
179
180
181 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
182
183 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
184 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
185 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
186 default.
187
188 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
189 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
190
191 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
192 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
193
194 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
195 creating a new sampler channel.
196
197 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
198
199 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
200 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
201 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
202 first time).
203
204 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
205 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
206
207 * Added Windows file path support.
208
209 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
210 under win32.
211
212 * Qt4 port of the application.
213
214
215 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
216
217 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
218 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
219 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
220 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
221
222 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
223 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
224 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
225 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
226
227 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
228 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
229 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
230
231 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
232
233
234 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
235
236 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
237 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
238 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
239
240 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
241
242 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
243 the session state, only at code-level.
244
245 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
246 existing instrument file name.
247
248 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
249 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
250 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
251 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
252 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
253 corrected some tooltip text strings.
254
255 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
256 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
257 window managers.
258
259 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
260 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
261 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
262 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
263
264 * GPL address update.
265
266
267 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
268
269 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
270 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
271
272 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
273
274 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
275 installation paths have been added to configure command
276 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
277
278 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
279 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
280 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
281 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
282 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
283
284 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
285 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
286 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
287 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
288
289 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
290
291 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
292 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
293
294 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
295 title name prefix.
296
297 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
298 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
299 generated at configure time.
300
301 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
302 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
303 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
304 argument have some effect on X11.
305
306 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
307
308 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
309 compiled with -no-stl.
310
311
312 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
313
314 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
315 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
316 one, while on qjackctl).
317
318 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
319 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
320
321
322 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
323
324 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
325 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
326
327 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
328 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
329 info updates.
330
331 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
332 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
333 device dialog.
334
335 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
336
337 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
338 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
339 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
340 Mayat, for pointing these out).
341
342
343 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
344
345 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
346
347 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
348 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
349 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
350
351 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
352 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
353
354 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
355 an instrument.
356
357 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
358
359
360 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
361
362 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
363 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
364 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
365 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
366
367 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
368 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
369 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
370
371 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
372 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
373
374 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
375
376 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
377 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
378 change information are now also posted to messages window.
379
380 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
381 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
382 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
383 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
384
385 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
386 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
387 sampler instrument file.
388
389 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
390 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
391 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
392 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
393
394 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
395 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
396 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
397
398 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
399 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
400 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
401 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
402
403
404 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
405
406 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
407 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
408 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
409
410 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
411 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
412 following common user-interface guidelines.
413
414 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
415 control structures.
416
417 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
418
419 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
420 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
421 channel (omni mode).
422
423 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
424 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
425
426 * Minor configure fixes.
427
428
429 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
430
431 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
432
433 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
434 and on session file save.
435
436 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
437 on create time.
438
439 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
440
441
442 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
443
444 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
445 over the empty workspace area.
446
447 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
448 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
449 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
450 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
451
452 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
453 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
454
455 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
456 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
457
458 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
459 each sampler channel strip.
460
461 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
462 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
463
464 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
465 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
466
467 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
468 new sampler channel strip.
469
470 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
471 suggested in the following lines:
472
473 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
474 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
475 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
476 LOAD ENGINE ...
477 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
478 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
479
480
481 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
