39
40
41 0.4.2 2016-11-14 A Fall'16 release.
42
43 * Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application
44 instance setup.

49
50
51 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
52
53 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
54 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
55
56 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
57 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
58 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
59
60 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
61 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.

88
89 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
90
91 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
92
93 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
94 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
95
96 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
97
98 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
99 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
100
101 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
102 main toolbar orientation.
103
104 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved

113
114 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
115
116 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
117 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
118 instruments of the same file.
119
120 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
121 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
122
123
124 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
125
126 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
127
128 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
129
130 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
131 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
132
133 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
134

136
137 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
138
139 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the

143
144 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
145
146 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
147
148 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
149
150 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
151 and make.
152
153 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
154 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
155 Debian 6.
156
157 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
158 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
159
160 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
161 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
162 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
163 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
164
165 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
166
167 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
168 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
169 wrong main widget hidden state.
170
171 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
172
173 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
174 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
175 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
176 targets (--enable-debug).
177
178 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
179
180 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
181 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
182 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
183
184 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
185 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
186
187 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
188 a menu separator has been added.
189
190 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
191 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
192
193 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
194 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
195 lame green solid background :).
196
197 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
198 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
199
200 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
201
202
203 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
204
205 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
206 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
207 ever may follow ;)
208
209 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
210
211 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
212 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
213 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
214 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
215 a sampler the next time.
216
217 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
218
219 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
220
221 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
222 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
223 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
224 (default none).
225
226 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
227 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
228 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
229
230 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
231 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
232 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
233 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
234
235 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
236 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
237
238 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
239 screwed.
240
241 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
242 e.g. by other frontends.
243
244 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
245 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
246 (fixes segfault on device changes)
247
248 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
249 "View" main menu.
250
251 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
252
253 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
254
255 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
256 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
257
258 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
259 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
260
261
262 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
263
264 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
265 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
266 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
267 default.
268
269 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
270 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
271
272 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
273 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
274
275 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
276 creating a new sampler channel.
277
278 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
279
280 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
281 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
282 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
283 first time).
284
285 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
286 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
287
288 * Added Windows file path support.
289
290 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
291 under win32.
292
293 * Qt4 port of the application.
294
295
296 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
297
298 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
299 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
300 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
301 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
302
303 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
304 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
305 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
306 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
307
308 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
309 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
310 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
311
312 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
313
314
315 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
316
317 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
318 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
319 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
320
321 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
322
323 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
324 the session state, only at code-level.
325
326 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
327 existing instrument file name.
328
329 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
330 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
331 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
332 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
333 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
334 corrected some tooltip text strings.
335
336 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
337 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
338 window managers.
339
340 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
341 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
342 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
343 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
344
345 * GPL address update.
346
347
348 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
349
350 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
351 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
352
353 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
354
355 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
356 installation paths have been added to configure command
357 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
358
359 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
360 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
361 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
362 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
363 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
364
365 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
366 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
367 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
368 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
369
370 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
371
372 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
373 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
374
375 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
376 title name prefix.
377
378 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
379 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
380 generated at configure time.
381
382 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
383 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
384 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
385 argument have some effect on X11.
386
387 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
388
389 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
390 compiled with -no-stl.
391
392
393 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
394
395 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
396 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
397 one, while on qjackctl).
398
399 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
400 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
401
402
403 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
404
405 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
406 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
407
408 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
409 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
410 info updates.
411
412 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
413 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
414 device dialog.
415
416 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
417
418 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
419 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
420 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
421 Mayat, for pointing these out).
422
423
424 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
425
426 * Device configuration is now complete.
427
428 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
429 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
430 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
431
432 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
433 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
434
435 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
436 an instrument.
437
438 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
439
440
441 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
442
443 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
444 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
445 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
446 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
447
448 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
449 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
450 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
451
452 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
453 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
454
455 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
456
457 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
458 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
459 change information are now also posted to messages window.
460
461 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
462 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
463 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
464 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
465
466 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
467 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
468 sampler instrument file.
469
470 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
471 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
472 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
473 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
474
475 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
476 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
477 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
478
479 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
480 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
481 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
482 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
483
484
485 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
486
487 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
488 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
489 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
490
491 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
492 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
493 following common user-interface guidelines.
494
495 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
496 control structures.
497
498 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
499
500 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
501 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
502 channel (omni mode).
503
504 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
505 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
506
507 * Minor configure fixes.
508
509
510 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
511
512 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
513
514 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
515 and on session file save.
516
517 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
518 on create time.
519
520 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
521
522
523 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
524
525 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
526 over the empty workspace area.
527
528 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
529 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
530 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
531 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
532
533 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
534 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
535
536 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
537 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
538
539 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
540 each sampler channel strip.
541
542 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
543 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
544
545 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
546 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
547
548 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
549 new sampler channel strip.
550
551 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
552 suggested in the following lines:
553
554 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
555 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
556 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
557 LOAD ENGINE ...
558 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
559 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
560
561
562 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
