167
168 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
169
170 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
171 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
172 instruments of the same file.
173
174 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
175 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
176
177
178 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
179
180 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
181
182 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.

197
198 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
199
200 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
201
202 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
203
204 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
205 and make.
206
207 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
208 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
209 Debian 6.
210
211 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
212 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
213
214 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
215 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
216 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
217 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
218
219 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
220
221 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
222 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
223 wrong main widget hidden state.
224
225 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
226
227 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
228 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
229 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
230 targets (--enable-debug).
231
232 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
233
234 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
235 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
236 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
237
238 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
239 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
240
241 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
242 a menu separator has been added.
243
244 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
245 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
246
247 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
248 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
249 lame green solid background :).
250
251 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
252 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
253
254 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
255
256
257 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
258
259 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
260 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
261 ever may follow ;)
262
263 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
264
265 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
266 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
267 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
268 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
269 a sampler the next time.
270
271 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
272
273 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
274
275 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
276 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
277 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
278 (default none).
279
280 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
281 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
282 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
283
284 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
285 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
286 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
287 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
288
289 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
290 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
291
292 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
293 screwed.
294
295 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
296 e.g. by other frontends.
297
298 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
299 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
300 (fixes segfault on device changes)
301
302 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
303 "View" main menu.
304
305 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
306
307 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
308
309 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
310 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
311
312 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
313 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
314
315
316 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
317
318 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
319 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
320 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
321 default.
322
323 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
324 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
325
326 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
327 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
328
329 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
330 creating a new sampler channel.
331
332 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
333
334 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
335 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
336 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
337 first time).
338
339 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
340 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
341
342 * Added Windows file path support.
343
344 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
345 under win32.
346
347 * Qt4 port of the application.
348
349
350 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
351
352 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
353 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
354 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
355 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
356
357 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
358 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
359 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
360 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
361
362 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
363 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
364 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
365
366 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
367
368
369 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
370
371 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
372 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
373 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
374
375 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
376
377 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
378 the session state, only at code-level.
379
380 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
381 existing instrument file name.
382
383 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
384 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
385 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
386 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
387 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
388 corrected some tooltip text strings.
389
390 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
391 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
392 window managers.
393
394 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
395 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
396 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
397 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
398
399 * GPL address update.
400
401
402 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
403
404 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
405 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
406
407 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
408
409 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
410 installation paths have been added to configure command
411 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
412
413 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
414 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
415 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
416 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
417 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
418
419 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
420 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
421 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
422 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
423
424 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
425
426 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
427 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
428
429 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
430 title name prefix.
431
432 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
433 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
434 generated at configure time.
435
436 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
437 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
438 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
439 argument have some effect on X11.
440
441 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
442
443 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
444 compiled with -no-stl.
445
446
447 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
448
449 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
450 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
451 one, while on qjackctl).
452
453 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
454 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
455
456
457 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
458
459 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
460 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
461
462 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
463 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
464 info updates.
465
466 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
467 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
468 device dialog.
469
470 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
471
472 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
473 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
474 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
475 Mayat, for pointing these out).
476
477
478 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
479
480 * Device configuration is now complete.
481
482 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
483 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
484 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
485
486 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
487 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
488
489 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
490 an instrument.
491
492 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
493
494
495 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
496
497 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
498 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
499 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
500 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
501
502 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
503 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
504 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
505
506 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
507 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
508
509 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
510
511 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
512 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
513 change information are now also posted to messages window.
514
515 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
516 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
517 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
518 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
519
520 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
521 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
522 sampler instrument file.
523
524 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
525 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
526 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
527 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
528
529 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
530 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
531 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
532
533 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
534 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
535 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
536 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
537
538
539 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
540
541 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
542 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
543 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
544
545 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
546 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
547 following common user-interface guidelines.
548
549 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
550 control structures.
551
552 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
553
554 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
555 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
556 channel (omni mode).
557
558 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
559 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
560
561 * Minor configure fixes.
562
563
564 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
565
566 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
567
568 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
569 and on session file save.
570
571 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
572 on create time.
573
574 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
575
576
577 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
578
579 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
580 over the empty workspace area.
581
582 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
583 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
584 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
585 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
586
587 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
588 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
589
590 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
591 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
592
593 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
594 each sampler channel strip.
595
596 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
597 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
598
599 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
600 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
601
602 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
603 new sampler channel strip.
604
605 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
606 suggested in the following lines:
607
608 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
609 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
