4 ChangeLog
5
6
7 0.3.1 2015-07-15 Summer'15 release frenzy.
8
9 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
10 64bit Linux flavours.
11
12 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
13
14 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
15 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
16
17 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
18
19
20 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
21
22 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
23
24 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
25 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
26
27 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
28
29 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
30 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
31
32 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
33 main toolbar orientation.
34
35 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
36 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
37
38 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
39
40 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
41 debian, thanks).
42
43 * Translations install directory change.
44
45 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
46
47 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
48 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
49 instruments of the same file.
50
51 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
52 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
53
54
55 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
56
57 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
58
59 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
60
61 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
62 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
63
64 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
65
66 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
67
68 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
69
70 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
71 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
72
73 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
74
75 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
76
77 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
78
79 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
80
81 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
82 and make.
83
84 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
85 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
86 Debian 6.
87
88 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
89 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
90
91 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
92 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
93 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
94 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
95
96 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
97
98 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
99 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
100 wrong main widget hidden state.
101
102 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
103
104 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
105 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
106 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
107 targets (--enable-debug).
108
109 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
110
111 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
112 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
113 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
114
115 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
116 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
117
118 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
119 a menu separator has been added.
120
121 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
122 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
123
124 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
125 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
126 lame green solid background :).
127
128 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
129 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
130
131 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
132
133
134 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
135
136 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
137 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
138 ever may follow ;)
139
140 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
141
142 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
143 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
144 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
145 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
146 a sampler the next time.
147
148 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
149
150 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
151
152 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
153 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
154 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
155 (default none).
156
157 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
158 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
159 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
160
161 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
162 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
163 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
164 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
165
166 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
167 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
168
169 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
170 screwed.
171
172 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
173 e.g. by other frontends.
174
175 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
176 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
177 (fixes segfault on device changes)
178
179 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
180 "View" main menu.
181
182 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
183
184 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
185
186 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
187 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
188
189 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
190 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
191
192
193 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
194
195 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
196 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
197 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
198 default.
199
200 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
201 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
202
203 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
204 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
205
206 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
207 creating a new sampler channel.
208
209 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
210
211 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
212 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
213 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
214 first time).
215
216 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
217 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
218
219 * Added Windows file path support.
220
221 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
222 under win32.
223
224 * Qt4 port of the application.
225
226
227 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
228
229 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
230 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
231 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
232 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
233
234 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
235 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
236 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
237 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
238
239 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
240 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
241 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
242
243 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
244
245
246 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
247
248 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
249 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
250 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
251
252 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
253
254 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
255 the session state, only at code-level.
256
257 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
258 existing instrument file name.
259
260 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
261 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
262 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
263 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
264 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
265 corrected some tooltip text strings.
266
267 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
268 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
269 window managers.
270
271 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
272 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
273 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
274 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
275
276 * GPL address update.
277
278
279 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
280
281 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
282 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
283
284 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
285
286 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
287 installation paths have been added to configure command
288 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
289
290 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
291 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
292 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
293 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
294 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
295
296 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
297 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
298 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
299 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
300
301 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
302
303 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
304 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
305
306 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
307 title name prefix.
308
309 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
310 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
311 generated at configure time.
312
313 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
314 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
315 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
316 argument have some effect on X11.
317
318 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
319
320 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
321 compiled with -no-stl.
322
323
324 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
325
326 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
327 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
328 one, while on qjackctl).
329
330 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
331 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
332
333
334 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
335
336 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
337 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
338
339 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
340 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
341 info updates.
342
343 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
344 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
345 device dialog.
346
347 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
348
349 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
350 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
351 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
352 Mayat, for pointing these out).
353
354
355 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
356
357 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
358
359 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
360 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
361 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
362
363 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
364 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
365
366 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
367 an instrument.
368
369 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
370
371
372 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
373
374 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
375 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
376 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
377 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
378
379 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
380 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
381 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
382
383 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
384 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
385
386 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
387
388 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
389 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
390 change information are now also posted to messages window.
391
392 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
393 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
394 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
395 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
396
397 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
398 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
399 sampler instrument file.
400
401 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
402 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
403 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
404 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
405
406 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
407 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
408 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
409
410 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
411 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
412 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
413 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
414
415
416 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
417
418 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
419 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
420 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
421
422 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
423 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
424 following common user-interface guidelines.
425
426 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
427 control structures.
428
429 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
430
431 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
432 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
433 channel (omni mode).
434
435 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
436 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
437
438 * Minor configure fixes.
439
440
441 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
442
443 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
444
445 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
446 and on session file save.
447
448 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
449 on create time.
450
451 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
452
453
454 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
455
456 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
457 over the empty workspace area.
458
459 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
460 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
461 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
462 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
463
464 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
465 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
466
467 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
468 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
469
470 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
471 each sampler channel strip.
472
473 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
474 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
475
476 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
477 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
478
479 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
480 new sampler channel strip.
481
482 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
483 suggested in the following lines:
484
485 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
486 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
487 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
488 LOAD ENGINE ...
489 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
490 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
491
492
493 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
