16 file (formerly AppData).
17
18

20
21 - Added French man page (by Olivier Humbert, thanks).
22

25
26
27 0.4.2 2016-11-14 A Fall'16 release.
28
29 * Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application
30 instance setup.
31
32 * Almost complete overhaul on the configure script command
33 line options, wrt. installation directories specification,
34 eg. --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --datadir and --mandir.
35
36
37 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
38
39 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
40 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
41
42 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
43 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
44 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
45
46 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
47 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
48
49
50 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
51
52 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
53
54 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
55
56 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
57 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
58
59 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
60
61

63
64 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
65 64bit Linux flavours.
66
67 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
68
69 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
70 sub-routine is now in effect.
71
72 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
73
74
75 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
76
77 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
78
79 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
80 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
81
82 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
83
84 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
85 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
86
87 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
88 main toolbar orientation.
89
90 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
91 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
92
93 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.

98 * Translations install directory change.
99
100 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
101
102 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
103 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
104 instruments of the same file.
105
106 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
107 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
108
109
110 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
111
112 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
113
114 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
115
116 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
117 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
118
119 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
120
121 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
122
123 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
124
125 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
126 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.

129
130 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
131
132 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
133
134 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
135
136 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
137 and make.
138
139 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
140 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
141 Debian 6.
142
143 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
144 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
145
146 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
147 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
148 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
149 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
150
151 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
152
153 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
154 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
155 wrong main widget hidden state.
156
157 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
158
159 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
160 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
161 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
162 targets (--enable-debug).
163
164 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
165
166 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
167 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
168 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
169
170 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
171 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
172
173 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
174 a menu separator has been added.
175
176 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
177 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
178
179 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
180 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
181 lame green solid background :).
182
183 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
184 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
185
186 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
187
188
189 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
190
191 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
192 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
193 ever may follow ;)
194
195 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
196
197 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
198 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
199 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
200 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
201 a sampler the next time.
202
203 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
204
205 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
206
207 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
208 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
209 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
210 (default none).
211
212 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
213 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
214 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
215
216 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
217 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
218 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
219 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
220
221 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
222 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
223
224 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
225 screwed.
226
227 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
228 e.g. by other frontends.
229
230 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
231 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
232 (fixes segfault on device changes)
233
234 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
235 "View" main menu.
236
237 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
238
239 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
240
241 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
242 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
243
244 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
245 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
246
247
248 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
249
250 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
251 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
252 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
253 default.
254
255 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
256 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
257
258 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
259 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
260
261 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
262 creating a new sampler channel.
263
264 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
265
266 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
267 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
268 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
269 first time).
270
271 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
272 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
273
274 * Added Windows file path support.
275
276 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
277 under win32.
278
279 * Qt4 port of the application.
280
281
282 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
283
284 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
285 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
286 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
287 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
288
289 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
290 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
291 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
292 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
293
294 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
295 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
296 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
297
298 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
299
300
301 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
302
303 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
304 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
305 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
306
307 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
308
309 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
310 the session state, only at code-level.
311
312 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
313 existing instrument file name.
314
315 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
316 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
317 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
318 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
319 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
320 corrected some tooltip text strings.
321
322 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
323 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
324 window managers.
325
326 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
327 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
328 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
329 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
330
331 * GPL address update.
332
333
334 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
335
336 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
337 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
338
339 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
340
341 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
342 installation paths have been added to configure command
343 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
344
345 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
346 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
347 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
348 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
349 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
350
351 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
352 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
353 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
354 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
355
356 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
357
358 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
359 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
360
361 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
362 title name prefix.
363
364 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
365 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
366 generated at configure time.
367
368 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
369 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
370 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
371 argument have some effect on X11.
372
373 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
374
375 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
376 compiled with -no-stl.
377
378
379 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
380
381 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
382 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
383 one, while on qjackctl).
384
385 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
386 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
387
388
389 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
390
391 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
392 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
393
394 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
395 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
396 info updates.
397
398 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
399 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
400 device dialog.
401
402 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
403
404 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
405 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
406 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
407 Mayat, for pointing these out).
408
409
410 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
411
412 * Device configuration is now complete.
413
414 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
415 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
416 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
417
418 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
419 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
420
421 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
422 an instrument.
423
424 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
425
426
427 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
428
429 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
430 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
431 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
432 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
433
434 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
435 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
436 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
437
438 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
439 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
440
441 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
442
443 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
444 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
445 change information are now also posted to messages window.
446
447 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
448 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
449 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
450 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
451
452 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
453 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
454 sampler instrument file.
455
456 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
457 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
458 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
459 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
460
461 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
462 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
463 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
464
465 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
466 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
467 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
468 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
469
470
471 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
472
473 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
474 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
475 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
476
477 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
478 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
479 following common user-interface guidelines.
480
481 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
482 control structures.
483
484 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
485
486 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
487 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
488 channel (omni mode).
489
490 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
491 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
492
493 * Minor configure fixes.
494
495
496 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
497
498 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
499
500 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
501 and on session file save.
502
503 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
504 on create time.
505
506 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
507
508
509 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
510
511 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
512 over the empty workspace area.
513
514 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
515 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
516 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
517 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
518
519 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
520 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
521
522 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
523 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
524
525 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
526 each sampler channel strip.
527
528 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
529 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
530
531 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
532 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
533
534 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
535 new sampler channel strip.
536
537 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
538 suggested in the following lines:
539
540 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
541 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
542 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
543 LOAD ENGINE ...
544 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
545 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
546
547
548 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
