10
11
12 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
13
14 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
15
16 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
17 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
18
19 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
20
21 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
22 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
23
24 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
25 main toolbar orientation.
26
27 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
28 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
29
30 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
31
32 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
33 debian, thanks).
34
35 * Translations install directory change.
36
37 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
38
39 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
40 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
41 instruments of the same file.
42
43 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
44 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
45
46
47 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
48
49 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
50
51 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
52
53 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
54 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
55
56 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
57
58 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
59
60 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
61
62 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
63 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
64
65 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
66
67 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
68
69 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
70
71 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
72
73 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
74 and make.
75
76 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
77 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
78 Debian 6.
79
80 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
81 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
82
83 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
84 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
85 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
86 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
87
88 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
89
90 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
91 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
92 wrong main widget hidden state.
93
94 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
95
96 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
97 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
98 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
99 targets (--enable-debug).
100
101 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
102
103 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
104 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
105 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
106
107 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
108 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
109
110 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
111 a menu separator has been added.
112
113 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
114 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
115
116 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
117 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
118 lame green solid background :).
119
120 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
121 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
122
123 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
124
125
126 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
127
128 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
129 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
130 ever may follow ;)
131
132 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
133
134 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
135 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
136 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
137 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
138 a sampler the next time.
139
140 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
141
142 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
143
144 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
145 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
146 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
147 (default none).
148
149 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
150 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
151 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
152
153 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
154 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
155 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
156 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
157
158 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
159 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
160
161 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
162 screwed.
163
164 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
165 e.g. by other frontends.
166
167 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
168 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
169 (fixes segfault on device changes)
170
171 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
172 "View" main menu.
173
174 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
175
176 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
177
178 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
179 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
180
181 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
182 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
183
184
185 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
186
187 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
188 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
189 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
190 default.
191
192 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
193 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
194
195 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
196 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
197
198 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
199 creating a new sampler channel.
200
201 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
202
203 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
204 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
205 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
206 first time).
207
208 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
209 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
210
211 * Added Windows file path support.
212
213 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
214 under win32.
215
216 * Qt4 port of the application.
217
218
219 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
220
221 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
222 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
223 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
224 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
225
226 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
227 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
228 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
229 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
230
231 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
232 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
233 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
234
235 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
236
237
238 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
239
240 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
241 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
242 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
243
244 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
245
246 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
247 the session state, only at code-level.
248
249 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
250 existing instrument file name.
251
252 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
253 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
254 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
255 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
256 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
257 corrected some tooltip text strings.
258
259 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
260 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
261 window managers.
262
263 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
264 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
265 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
266 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
267
268 * GPL address update.
269
270
271 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
272
273 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
274 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
275
276 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
277
278 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
279 installation paths have been added to configure command
280 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
281
282 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
283 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
284 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
285 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
286 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
287
288 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
289 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
290 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
291 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
292
293 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
294
295 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
296 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
297
298 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
299 title name prefix.
300
301 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
302 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
303 generated at configure time.
304
305 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
306 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
307 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
308 argument have some effect on X11.
309
310 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
311
312 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
313 compiled with -no-stl.
314
315
316 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
317
318 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
319 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
320 one, while on qjackctl).
321
322 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
323 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
324
325
326 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
327
328 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
329 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
330
331 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
332 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
333 info updates.
334
335 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
336 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
337 device dialog.
338
339 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
340
341 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
342 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
343 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
344 Mayat, for pointing these out).
345
346
347 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
348
349 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
350
351 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
352 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
353 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
354
355 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
356 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
357
358 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
359 an instrument.
360
361 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
362
363
364 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
365
366 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
367 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
368 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
369 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
370
371 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
372 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
373 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
374
375 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
376 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
377
378 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
379
380 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
381 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
382 change information are now also posted to messages window.
383
384 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
385 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
386 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
387 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
388
389 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
390 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
391 sampler instrument file.
392
393 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
394 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
395 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
396 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
397
398 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
399 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
400 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
401
402 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
403 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
404 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
405 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
406
407
408 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
409
410 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
411 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
412 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
413
414 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
415 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
416 following common user-interface guidelines.
417
418 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
419 control structures.
420
421 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
422
423 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
424 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
425 channel (omni mode).
426
427 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
428 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
429
430 * Minor configure fixes.
431
432
433 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
434
435 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
436
437 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
438 and on session file save.
439
440 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
441 on create time.
442
443 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
444
445
446 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
447
448 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
449 over the empty workspace area.
450
451 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
452 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
453 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
454 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
455
456 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
457 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
458
459 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
460 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
461
462 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
463 each sampler channel strip.
464
465 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
466 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
467
468 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
469 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
470
471 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
472 new sampler channel strip.
473
474 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
475 suggested in the following lines:
476
477 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
478 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
479 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
480 LOAD ENGINE ...
481 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
482 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
483
484
485 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
