103 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
104
105 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
106 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
107
108 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
109
110 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
111 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".

129 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
130 instruments of the same file.
131
132 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
133 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
134
135
136 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
137
138 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
139
140 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
141
142 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

155
156 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
157
158 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
159
160 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
161
162 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
163 and make.
164
165 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
166 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
167 Debian 6.
168
169 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
170 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
171
172 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
173 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
174 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
175 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
176
177 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
178
179 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
180 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
181 wrong main widget hidden state.
182
183 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
184
185 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
186 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
187 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
188 targets (--enable-debug).
189
190 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
191
192 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
193 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
194 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
195
196 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
197 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
198
199 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
200 a menu separator has been added.
201
202 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
203 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
204
205 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
206 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
207 lame green solid background :).
208
209 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
210 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
211
212 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
213
214
215 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
216
217 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
218 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
219 ever may follow ;)
220
221 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
222
223 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
224 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
225 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
226 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
227 a sampler the next time.
228
229 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
230
231 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
232
233 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
234 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
235 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
236 (default none).
237
238 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
239 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
240 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
241
242 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
243 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
244 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
245 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
246
247 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
248 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
249
250 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
251 screwed.
252
253 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
254 e.g. by other frontends.
255
256 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
257 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
258 (fixes segfault on device changes)
259
260 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
261 "View" main menu.
262
263 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
264
265 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
266
267 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
268 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
269
270 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
271 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
272
273
274 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
275
276 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
277 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
278 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
279 default.
280
281 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
282 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
283
284 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
285 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
286
287 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
288 creating a new sampler channel.
289
290 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
291
292 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
293 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
294 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
295 first time).
296
297 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
298 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
299
300 * Added Windows file path support.
301
302 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
303 under win32.
304
305 * Qt4 port of the application.
306
307
308 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
309
310 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
311 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
312 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
313 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
314
315 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
316 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
317 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
318 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
319
320 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
321 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
322 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
323
324 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
325
326
327 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
328
329 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
330 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
331 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
332
333 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
334
335 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
336 the session state, only at code-level.
337
338 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
339 existing instrument file name.
340
341 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
342 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
343 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
344 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
345 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
346 corrected some tooltip text strings.
347
348 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
349 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
350 window managers.
351
352 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
353 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
354 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
355 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
356
357 * GPL address update.
358
359
360 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
361
362 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
363 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
364
365 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
366
367 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
368 installation paths have been added to configure command
369 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
370
371 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
372 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
373 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
374 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
375 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
376
377 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
378 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
379 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
380 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
381
382 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
383
384 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
385 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
386
387 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
388 title name prefix.
389
390 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
391 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
392 generated at configure time.
393
394 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
395 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
396 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
397 argument have some effect on X11.
398
399 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
400
401 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
402 compiled with -no-stl.
403
404
405 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
406
407 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
408 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
409 one, while on qjackctl).
410
411 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
412 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
413
414
415 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
416
417 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
418 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
419
420 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
421 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
422 info updates.
423
424 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
425 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
426 device dialog.
427
428 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
429
430 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
431 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
432 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
433 Mayat, for pointing these out).
434
435
436 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
437
438 * Device configuration is now complete.
439
440 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
441 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
442 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
443
444 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
445 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
446
447 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
448 an instrument.
449
450 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
451
452
453 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
454
455 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
456 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
457 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
458 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
459
460 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
461 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
462 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
463
464 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
465 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
466
467 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
468
469 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
470 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
471 change information are now also posted to messages window.
472
473 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
474 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
475 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
476 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
477
478 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
479 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
480 sampler instrument file.
481
482 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
483 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
484 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
485 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
486
487 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
488 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
489 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
490
491 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
492 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
493 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
494 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
495
496
497 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
498
499 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
500 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
501 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
502
503 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
504 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
505 following common user-interface guidelines.
506
507 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
508 control structures.
509
510 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
511
512 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
513 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
514 channel (omni mode).
515
516 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
517 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
518
519 * Minor configure fixes.
520
521
522 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
523
524 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
525
526 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
527 and on session file save.
528
529 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
530 on create time.
531
532 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
533
534
535 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
536
537 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
538 over the empty workspace area.
539
540 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
541 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
542 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
543 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
544
545 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
546 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
547
548 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
549 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
550
551 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
552 each sampler channel strip.
553
554 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
555 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
556
557 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
558 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
559
560 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
561 new sampler channel strip.
562
563 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
564 suggested in the following lines:
565
566 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
567 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
568 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
569 LOAD ENGINE ...
570 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
571 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
