140 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
141
142 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
143 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido

181
182 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
183
184 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to

199
200 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
201
202 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
203 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
204 instruments of the same file.
205
206 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
207 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
208
209
210 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
211
212 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
213
214 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
215
216 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

231
232 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
233
234 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
235
236 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
237 and make.
238
239 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
240 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
241 Debian 6.
242
243 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
244 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
245
246 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
247 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
248 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
249 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
250
251 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
252
253 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
254 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
255 wrong main widget hidden state.
256
257 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
258
259 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
260 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
261 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build

263
264 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
265
266 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
267 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
268 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
269
270 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
271 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
272
273 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
274 a menu separator has been added.
275
276 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
277 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
278
279 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
280 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
281 lame green solid background :).
282
283 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
284 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
285
286 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
287
288
289 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
290
291 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
292 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
293 ever may follow ;)
294
295 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
296
297 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
298 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
299 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
300 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
301 a sampler the next time.
302
303 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
304
305 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
306
307 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
308 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
309 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
310 (default none).
311
312 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
313 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
314 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
315
316 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
317 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
318 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
319 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
320
321 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
322 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
323
324 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
325 screwed.
326
327 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
328 e.g. by other frontends.
329
330 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
331 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
332 (fixes segfault on device changes)
333
334 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
335 "View" main menu.
336
337 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
338
339 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
340
341 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
342 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
343
344 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
345 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
346
347
348 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
349
350 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
351 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
352 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
353 default.
354
355 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
356 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
357
358 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
359 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
360
361 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
362 creating a new sampler channel.
363
364 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
365
366 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
367 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
368 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
369 first time).
370
371 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
372 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
373
374 * Added Windows file path support.
375
376 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
377 under win32.
378
379 * Qt4 port of the application.
380
381
382 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
383
384 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
385 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
386 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
387 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
388
389 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
390 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
391 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
392 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
393
394 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
395 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
396 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
397
398 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
399
400
401 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
402
403 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
404 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
405 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
406
407 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
408
409 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
410 the session state, only at code-level.
411
412 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
413 existing instrument file name.
414
415 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
416 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
417 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
418 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
419 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
420 corrected some tooltip text strings.
421
422 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
423 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
424 window managers.
425
426 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
427 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
428 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
429 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
430
431 * GPL address update.
432
433
434 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
435
436 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
437 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
438
439 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
440
441 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
442 installation paths have been added to configure command
443 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
444
445 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
446 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
447 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
448 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
449 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
450
451 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
452 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
453 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
454 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
455
456 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
457
458 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
459 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
460
461 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
462 title name prefix.
463
464 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
465 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
466 generated at configure time.
467
468 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
469 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
470 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
471 argument have some effect on X11.
472
473 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
474
475 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
476 compiled with -no-stl.
477
478
479 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
480
481 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
482 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
483 one, while on qjackctl).
484
485 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
486 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
487
488
489 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
490
491 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
492 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
493
494 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
495 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
496 info updates.
497
498 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
499 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
500 device dialog.
501
502 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
503
504 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
505 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
506 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
507 Mayat, for pointing these out).
508
509
510 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
511
512 * Device configuration is now complete.
513
514 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
515 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
516 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
517
518 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
519 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
520
521 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
522 an instrument.
523
524 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
525
526
527 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
528
529 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
530 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
531 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
532 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
533
534 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
535 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
536 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
537
538 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
539 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
540
541 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
542
543 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
544 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
545 change information are now also posted to messages window.
546
547 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
548 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
549 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
550 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
551
552 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
553 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
554 sampler instrument file.
555
556 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
557 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
558 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
559 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
560
561 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
562 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
563 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
564
565 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
566 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
567 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
568 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
569
570
571 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
572
573 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
574 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
575 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
576
577 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
578 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
579 following common user-interface guidelines.
580
581 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
582 control structures.
583
584 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
585
586 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
587 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
588 channel (omni mode).
589
590 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
591 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
592
593 * Minor configure fixes.
594
595
596 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
597
598 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
599
600 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
601 and on session file save.
602
603 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
604 on create time.
605
606 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
607
608
609 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
610
611 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
612 over the empty workspace area.
613
614 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
615 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
616 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
617 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
618
619 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
620 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
621
622 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
623 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
624
625 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
626 each sampler channel strip.
627
628 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
629 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
630
631 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
632 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
633
634 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
635 new sampler channel strip.
636
637 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
638 suggested in the following lines:
639
640 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
641 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
642 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
643 LOAD ENGINE ...
644 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
