185
186 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
187
188 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
189 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
190 instruments of the same file.
191
192 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
193 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
194
195
196 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
197
198 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
199
200 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
201
202 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

214 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
215
216 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
217
218 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
219
220 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
221
222 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
223 and make.
224
225 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
226 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
227 Debian 6.
228
229 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
230 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
231
232 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
233 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
234 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
235 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
236
237 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
238
239 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
240 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to

243 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
244
245 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-

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