6
7 GIT HEAD
8
9 - Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
10 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
11 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
12
13
14 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
15
16 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
17
18 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
19
20 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
21 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
22
23 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
24
25
26 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
27
28 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
29 64bit Linux flavours.
30
31 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
32
33 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
34 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
35
36 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
37
38
39 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
40
41 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
42
43 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
44 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
45
46 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
47
48 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
49 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
50
51 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
52 main toolbar orientation.
53
54 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
55 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
56
57 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
58
59 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
60 debian, thanks).
61
62 * Translations install directory change.
63
64 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
65
66 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
67 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
68 instruments of the same file.
69
70 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
71 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
72
73
74 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
75
76 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
77
78 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
79
80 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
81 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
82
83 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
84
85 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
86
87 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
88
89 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
90 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
91
92 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
93
94 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
95
96 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
97
98 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
99
100 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
101 and make.
102
103 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
104 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
105 Debian 6.
106
107 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
108 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
109
110 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
111 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
112 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
113 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
114
115 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
116
117 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
118 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
119 wrong main widget hidden state.
120
121 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
122
123 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
124 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
125 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
126 targets (--enable-debug).
127
128 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
129
130 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
131 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
132 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
133
134 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
135 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
136
137 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
138 a menu separator has been added.
139
140 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
141 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
142
143 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
144 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
145 lame green solid background :).
146
147 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
148 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
149
150 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
151
152
153 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
154
155 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
156 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
157 ever may follow ;)
158
159 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
160
161 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
162 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
163 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
164 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
165 a sampler the next time.
166
167 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
168
169 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
170
171 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
172 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
173 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
174 (default none).
175
176 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
177 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
178 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
179
180 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
181 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
182 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
183 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
184
185 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
186 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
187
188 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
189 screwed.
190
191 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
192 e.g. by other frontends.
193
194 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
195 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
196 (fixes segfault on device changes)
197
198 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
199 "View" main menu.
200
201 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
202
203 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
204
205 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
206 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
207
208 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
209 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
210
211
212 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
213
214 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
215 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
216 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
217 default.
218
219 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
220 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
221
222 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
223 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
224
225 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
226 creating a new sampler channel.
227
228 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
229
230 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
231 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
232 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
233 first time).
234
235 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
236 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
237
238 * Added Windows file path support.
239
240 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
241 under win32.
242
243 * Qt4 port of the application.
244
245
246 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
247
248 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
249 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
250 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
251 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
252
253 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
254 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
255 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
256 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
257
258 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
259 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
260 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
261
262 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
263
264
265 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
266
267 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
268 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
269 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
270
271 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
272
273 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
274 the session state, only at code-level.
275
276 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
277 existing instrument file name.
278
279 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
280 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
281 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
282 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
283 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
284 corrected some tooltip text strings.
285
286 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
287 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
288 window managers.
289
290 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
291 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
292 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
293 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
294
295 * GPL address update.
296
297
298 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
299
300 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
301 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
302
303 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
304
305 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
306 installation paths have been added to configure command
307 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
308
309 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
310 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
311 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
312 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
313 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
314
315 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
316 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
317 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
318 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
319
320 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
321
322 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
323 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
324
325 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
326 title name prefix.
327
328 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
329 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
330 generated at configure time.
331
332 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
333 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
334 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
335 argument have some effect on X11.
336
337 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
338
339 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
340 compiled with -no-stl.
341
342
343 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
344
345 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
346 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
347 one, while on qjackctl).
348
349 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
350 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
351
352
353 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
354
355 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
356 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
357
358 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
359 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
360 info updates.
361
362 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
363 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
364 device dialog.
365
366 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
367
368 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
369 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
370 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
371 Mayat, for pointing these out).
372
373
374 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
375
376 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
377
378 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
379 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
380 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
381
382 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
383 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
384
385 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
386 an instrument.
387
388 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
389
390
391 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
392
393 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
394 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
395 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
396 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
397
398 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
399 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
400 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
401
402 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
403 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
404
405 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
406
407 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
408 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
409 change information are now also posted to messages window.
410
411 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
412 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
413 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
414 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
415
416 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
417 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
418 sampler instrument file.
419
420 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
421 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
422 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
423 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
424
425 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
426 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
427 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
428
429 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
430 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
431 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
432 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
433
434
435 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
436
437 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
438 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
439 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
440
441 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
442 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
443 following common user-interface guidelines.
444
445 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
446 control structures.
447
448 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
449
450 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
451 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
452 channel (omni mode).
453
454 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
455 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
456
457 * Minor configure fixes.
458
459
460 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
461
462 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
463
464 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
465 and on session file save.
466
467 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
468 on create time.
469
470 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
471
472
473 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
474
475 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
476 over the empty workspace area.
477
478 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
479 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
480 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
481 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
482
483 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
484 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
485
486 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
487 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
488
489 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
490 each sampler channel strip.
491
492 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
493 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
494
495 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
496 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
497
498 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
499 new sampler channel strip.
500
501 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
502 suggested in the following lines:
503
504 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
505 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
506 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
507 LOAD ENGINE ...
508 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
509 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
510
511
512 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
