7 GIT HEAD
8
9 * Force an initial but temporary main window expose/realize/show,
10 prior to restore its saved position and size, making sure the
11 top-level window decorations (title, frame and borders) are
12 taken into account. (EXPERIMENTAL)
13
14 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
15 (EXPERIMENTAL)
16
17
18 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
19
20 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
21 64bit Linux flavours.
22
23 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
24
25 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
26 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
27
28 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
29
30
31 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
32
33 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
34
35 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
36 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
37
38 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
39
40 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
41 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
42
43 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
44 main toolbar orientation.
45
46 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
47 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
48
49 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
50
51 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
52 debian, thanks).
53
54 * Translations install directory change.
55
56 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
57
58 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
59 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
60 instruments of the same file.
61
62 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
63 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
64
65
66 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
67
68 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
69
70 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
71
72 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
73 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
74
75 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
76
77 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
78
79 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
80
81 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
82 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
83
84 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
85
86 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
87
88 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
89
90 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
91
92 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
93 and make.
94
95 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
96 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
97 Debian 6.
98
99 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
100 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
101
102 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
103 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
104 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
105 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
106
107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
108
109 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
110 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
111 wrong main widget hidden state.
112
113 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
114
115 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
116 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
117 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
118 targets (--enable-debug).
119
120 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
121
122 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
123 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
124 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
125
126 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
127 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
128
129 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
130 a menu separator has been added.
131
132 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
133 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
134
135 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
136 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
137 lame green solid background :).
138
139 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
140 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
141
142 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
143
144
145 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
146
147 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
148 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
149 ever may follow ;)
150
151 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
152
153 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
154 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
155 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
156 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
157 a sampler the next time.
158
159 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
160
161 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
162
163 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
164 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
165 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
166 (default none).
167
168 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
169 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
170 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
171
172 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
173 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
174 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
175 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
176
177 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
178 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
179
180 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
181 screwed.
182
183 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
184 e.g. by other frontends.
185
186 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
187 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
188 (fixes segfault on device changes)
189
190 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
191 "View" main menu.
192
193 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
194
195 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
196
197 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
198 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
199
200 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
201 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
202
203
204 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
205
206 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
207 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
208 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
209 default.
210
211 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
212 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
213
214 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
215 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
216
217 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
218 creating a new sampler channel.
219
220 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
221
222 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
223 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
224 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
225 first time).
226
227 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
228 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
229
230 * Added Windows file path support.
231
232 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
233 under win32.
234
235 * Qt4 port of the application.
236
237
238 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
239
240 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
241 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
242 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
243 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
244
245 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
246 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
247 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
248 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
249
250 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
251 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
252 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
253
254 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
255
256
257 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
258
259 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
260 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
261 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
262
263 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
264
265 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
266 the session state, only at code-level.
267
268 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
269 existing instrument file name.
270
271 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
272 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
273 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
274 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
275 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
276 corrected some tooltip text strings.
277
278 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
279 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
280 window managers.
281
282 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
283 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
284 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
285 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
286
287 * GPL address update.
288
289
290 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
291
292 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
293 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
294
295 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
296
297 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
298 installation paths have been added to configure command
299 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
300
301 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
302 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
303 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
304 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
305 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
306
307 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
308 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
309 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
310 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
311
312 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
313
314 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
315 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
316
317 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
318 title name prefix.
319
320 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
321 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
322 generated at configure time.
323
324 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
325 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
326 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
327 argument have some effect on X11.
328
329 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
330
331 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
332 compiled with -no-stl.
333
334
335 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
336
337 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
338 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
339 one, while on qjackctl).
340
341 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
342 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
343
344
345 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
346
347 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
348 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
349
350 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
351 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
352 info updates.
353
354 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
355 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
356 device dialog.
357
358 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
359
360 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
361 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
362 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
363 Mayat, for pointing these out).
364
365
366 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
367
368 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
369
370 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
371 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
372 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
373
374 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
375 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
376
377 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
378 an instrument.
379
380 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
381
382
383 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
384
385 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
386 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
387 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
388 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
389
390 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
391 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
392 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
393
394 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
395 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
396
397 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
398
399 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
400 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
401 change information are now also posted to messages window.
402
403 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
404 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
405 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
406 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
407
408 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
409 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
410 sampler instrument file.
411
412 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
413 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
414 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
415 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
416
417 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
418 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
419 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
420
421 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
422 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
423 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
424 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
425
426
427 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
428
429 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
430 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
431 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
432
433 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
434 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
435 following common user-interface guidelines.
436
437 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
438 control structures.
439
440 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
441
442 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
443 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
444 channel (omni mode).
445
446 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
447 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
448
449 * Minor configure fixes.
450
451
452 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
453
454 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
455
456 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
457 and on session file save.
458
459 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
460 on create time.
461
462 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
463
464
465 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
466
467 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
468 over the empty workspace area.
469
470 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
471 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
472 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
473 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
474
475 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
476 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
477
478 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
479 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
480
481 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
482 each sampler channel strip.
483
484 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
485 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
486
487 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
488 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
489
490 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
491 new sampler channel strip.
492
493 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
494 suggested in the following lines:
495
496 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
497 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
498 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
499 LOAD ENGINE ...
500 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
501 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
502
503
504 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
