8
9 - Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application
10 instance setup.
11
12 - Almost complete overhaul on the configure script command
13 line options, wrt. installation directories specification,
14 eg. --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --datadir and --mandir.
15 (EXPERIMENTAL)
16
17
18 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
19
20 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
21 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
22
23 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
24 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
25 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
26
27 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
28 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
29
30
31 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
32
33 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
34
35 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
36
37 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
38 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
39
40 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
41
42
43 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
44
45 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
46 64bit Linux flavours.
47
48 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
49
50 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
51 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
52
53 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
54
55
56 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
57
58 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
59
60 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
61 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
62
63 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
64
65 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
66 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
67
68 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
69 main toolbar orientation.
70
71 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
72 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
73
74 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
75
76 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
77 debian, thanks).
78
79 * Translations install directory change.
80
81 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
82
83 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
84 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
85 instruments of the same file.
86
87 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
88 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
89
90
91 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
92
93 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
94
95 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
96
97 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
98 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
99
100 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
101
102 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
103
104 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
105
106 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
107 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
108
109 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
110
111 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
112
113 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
114
115 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
116
117 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
118 and make.
119
120 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
121 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
122 Debian 6.
123
124 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
125 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
126
127 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
128 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
129 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
130 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
131
132 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
133
134 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
135 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
136 wrong main widget hidden state.
137
138 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
139
140 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
141 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
142 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
143 targets (--enable-debug).
144
145 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
146
147 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
148 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
149 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
150
151 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
152 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
153
154 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
155 a menu separator has been added.
156
157 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
158 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
159
160 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
161 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
162 lame green solid background :).
163
164 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
165 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
166
167 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
168
169
170 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
171
172 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
173 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
174 ever may follow ;)
175
176 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
177
178 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
179 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
180 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
181 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
182 a sampler the next time.
183
184 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
185
186 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
187
188 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
189 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
190 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
191 (default none).
192
193 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
194 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
195 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
196
197 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
198 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
199 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
200 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
201
202 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
203 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
204
205 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
206 screwed.
207
208 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
209 e.g. by other frontends.
210
211 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
212 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
213 (fixes segfault on device changes)
214
215 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
216 "View" main menu.
217
218 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
219
220 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
221
222 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
223 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
224
225 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
226 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
227
228
229 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
230
231 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
232 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
233 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
234 default.
235
236 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
237 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
238
239 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
240 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
241
242 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
243 creating a new sampler channel.
244
245 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
246
247 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
248 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
249 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
250 first time).
251
252 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
253 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
254
255 * Added Windows file path support.
256
257 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
258 under win32.
259
260 * Qt4 port of the application.
261
262
263 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
264
265 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
266 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
267 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
268 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
269
270 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
271 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
272 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
273 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
274
275 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
276 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
277 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
278
279 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
280
281
282 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
283
284 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
285 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
286 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
287
288 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
289
290 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
291 the session state, only at code-level.
292
293 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
294 existing instrument file name.
295
296 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
297 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
298 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
299 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
300 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
301 corrected some tooltip text strings.
302
303 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
304 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
305 window managers.
306
307 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
308 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
309 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
310 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
311
312 * GPL address update.
313
314
315 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
316
317 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
318 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
319
320 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
321
322 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
323 installation paths have been added to configure command
324 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
325
326 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
327 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
328 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
329 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
330 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
331
332 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
333 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
334 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
335 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
336
337 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
338
339 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
340 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
341
342 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
343 title name prefix.
344
345 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
346 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
347 generated at configure time.
348
349 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
350 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
351 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
352 argument have some effect on X11.
353
354 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
355
356 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
357 compiled with -no-stl.
358
359
360 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
361
362 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
363 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
364 one, while on qjackctl).
365
366 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
367 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
368
369
370 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
371
372 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
373 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
374
375 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
376 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
377 info updates.
378
379 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
380 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
381 device dialog.
382
383 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
384
385 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
386 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
387 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
388 Mayat, for pointing these out).
389
390
391 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
392
393 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
394
395 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
396 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
397 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
398
399 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
400 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
401
402 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
403 an instrument.
404
405 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
406
407
408 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
409
410 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
411 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
412 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
413 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
414
415 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
416 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
417 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
418
419 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
420 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
421
422 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
423
424 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
425 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
426 change information are now also posted to messages window.
427
428 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
429 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
430 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
431 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
432
433 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
434 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
435 sampler instrument file.
436
437 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
438 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
439 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
440 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
441
442 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
443 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
444 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
445
446 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
447 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
448 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
449 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
450
451
452 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
453
454 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
455 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
456 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
457
458 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
459 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
460 following common user-interface guidelines.
461
462 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
463 control structures.
464
465 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
466
467 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
468 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
469 channel (omni mode).
470
471 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
472 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
473
474 * Minor configure fixes.
475
476
477 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
478
479 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
480
481 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
482 and on session file save.
483
484 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
485 on create time.
486
487 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
488
489
490 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
491
492 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
493 over the empty workspace area.
494
495 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
496 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
497 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
498 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
499
500 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
501 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
502
503 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
504 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
505
506 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
507 each sampler channel strip.
508
509 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
510 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
511
512 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
513 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
514
515 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
516 new sampler channel strip.
517
518 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
519 suggested in the following lines:
520
521 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
522 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
523 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
524 LOAD ENGINE ...
525 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
526 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
527
528
529 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
