6
7 0.4.3 2017-04-27 Pre-LAC2017 release frenzy.
8
9 - Added French man page (by Olivier Humbert, thanks).
10
11 - Make builds reproducible byte for byte, by getting rid of
12 the configure build date and time stamps.
13
14
15 0.4.2 2016-11-14 A Fall'16 release.
16
17 * Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application
18 instance setup.
19
20 * Almost complete overhaul on the configure script command
21 line options, wrt. installation directories specification,
22 eg. --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --datadir and --mandir.
23
24
25 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
26
27 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
28 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
29
30 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
31 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
32 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
33
34 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
35 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
36
37
38 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
39
40 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
41
42 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
43
44 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
45 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
46
47 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
48
49
50 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
51
52 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
53 64bit Linux flavours.
54
55 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
56
57 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
58 sub-routine is now in effect.
59
60 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
61
62
63 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
64
65 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
66
67 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
68 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
69
70 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
71
72 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
73 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
74
75 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
76 main toolbar orientation.
77
78 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
79 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
80
81 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
82

86 * Translations install directory change.
87
88 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
89
90 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
91 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
92 instruments of the same file.
93
94 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
95 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
96
97
98 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
99
100 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
101
102 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
103
104 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
105 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
106
107 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
108
109 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
110
111 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
112
113 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
114 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
115
116 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
117
118 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
119
120 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
121
122 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
123
124 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
125 and make.
126
127 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
128 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
129 Debian 6.
130
131 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
132 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
133
134 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
135 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
136 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
137 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
138
139 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
140
141 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
142 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
143 wrong main widget hidden state.
144
145 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
146
147 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
148 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
149 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
150 targets (--enable-debug).
151
152 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
153
154 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
155 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
156 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
157
158 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
159 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
160
161 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
162 a menu separator has been added.
163
164 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
165 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
166
167 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
168 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
169 lame green solid background :).
170
171 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
172 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
173
174 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
175
176
177 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
178
179 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
180 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
181 ever may follow ;)
182
183 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
184
185 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
186 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
187 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
188 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
189 a sampler the next time.
190
191 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
192
193 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
194
195 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
196 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
197 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
198 (default none).
199
200 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
201 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
202 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
203
204 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
205 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
206 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
207 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
208
209 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
210 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
211
212 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
213 screwed.
214
215 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
216 e.g. by other frontends.
217
218 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
219 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
220 (fixes segfault on device changes)
221
222 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
223 "View" main menu.
224
225 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
226
227 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
228
229 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
230 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
231
232 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
233 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
234
235
236 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
237
238 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
239 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
240 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
241 default.
242
243 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
244 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
245
246 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
247 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
248
249 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
250 creating a new sampler channel.
251
252 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
253
254 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
255 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
256 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
257 first time).
258
259 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
260 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
261
262 * Added Windows file path support.
263
264 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
265 under win32.
266
267 * Qt4 port of the application.
268
269
270 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
271
272 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
273 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
274 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
275 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
276
277 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
278 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
279 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
280 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
281
282 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
283 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
284 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
285
286 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
287
288
289 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
290
291 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
292 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
293 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
294
295 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
296
297 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
298 the session state, only at code-level.
299
300 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
301 existing instrument file name.
302
303 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
304 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
305 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
306 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
307 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
308 corrected some tooltip text strings.
309
310 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
311 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
312 window managers.
313
314 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
315 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
316 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
317 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
318
319 * GPL address update.
320
321
322 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
323
324 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
325 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
326
327 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
328
329 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
330 installation paths have been added to configure command
331 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
332
333 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
334 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
335 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
336 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
337 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
338
339 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
340 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
341 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
342 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
343
344 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
345
346 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
347 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
348
349 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
350 title name prefix.
351
352 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
353 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
354 generated at configure time.
355
356 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
357 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
358 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
359 argument have some effect on X11.
360
361 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
362
363 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
364 compiled with -no-stl.
365
366
367 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
368
369 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
370 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
371 one, while on qjackctl).
372
373 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
374 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
375
376
377 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
378
379 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
380 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
381
382 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
383 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
384 info updates.
385
386 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
387 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
388 device dialog.
389
390 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
391
392 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
393 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
394 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
395 Mayat, for pointing these out).
396
397
398 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
399
400 * Device configuration is now complete.
401
402 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
403 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
404 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
405
406 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
407 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
408
409 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
410 an instrument.
411
412 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
413
414
415 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
416
417 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
418 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
419 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
420 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
421
422 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
423 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
424 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
425
426 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
427 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
428
429 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
430
431 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
432 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
433 change information are now also posted to messages window.
434
435 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
436 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
437 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
438 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
439
440 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
441 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
442 sampler instrument file.
443
444 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
445 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
446 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
447 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
448
449 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
450 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
451 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
452
453 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
454 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
455 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
456 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
457
458
459 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
460
461 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
462 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
463 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
464
465 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
466 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
467 following common user-interface guidelines.
468
469 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
470 control structures.
471
472 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
473
474 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
475 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
476 channel (omni mode).
477
478 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
479 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
480
481 * Minor configure fixes.
482
483
484 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
485
486 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
487
488 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
489 and on session file save.
490
491 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
492 on create time.
493
494 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
495
496
497 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
498
499 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
500 over the empty workspace area.
501
502 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
503 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
504 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
505 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
506
507 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
508 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
509
510 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
511 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
512
513 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
514 each sampler channel strip.
515
516 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
517 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
518
519 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
520 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
521
522 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
523 new sampler channel strip.
524
525 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
526 suggested in the following lines:
527
528 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
529 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
530 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
531 LOAD ENGINE ...
532 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
533 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
534
535
536 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
