* Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
  option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
  number of selectable Instrument items is now being graciously
  increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
  (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.

* The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
  and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
  are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
  before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.

8 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
9 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
10 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
11 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
12 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
13
14 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
15 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
16 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
17 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
18
19 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
20
21 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
22 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
23
24 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
25 title name prefix.
26
27 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
28 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
29 generated at configure time.
30
31 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
32 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
33 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
34 argument have some effect on X11.
35
36 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
37
38 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
39 compiled with -no-stl.
40
41
42 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
43
44 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
45 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
46 one, while on qjackctl).
47
48 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
49 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
50
51
52 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
53
54 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
55 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
56
57 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
58 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
59 info updates.
60
61 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
62 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
63 device dialog.
64
65 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
66
67 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
68 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
69 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
70 Mayat, for pointing these out).
71
72
73 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
74
75 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
76
77 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
78 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
79 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
80
81 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
82 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
83
84 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
85 an instrument.
86
87 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
88
89
90 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
91
92 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
93 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
94 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
95 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
96
97 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
98 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
99 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
100
101 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
102 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
103
104 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
105
106 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
107 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
108 change information are now also posted to messages window.
109
110 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
111 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
112 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
113 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
114
115 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
116 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
117 sampler instrument file.
118
119 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
120 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
121 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
122 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
123
124 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
125 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
126 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
127
128 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
129 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
130 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
131 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
132
133
134 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
135
136 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
137 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
138 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
139
140 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
141 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
142 following common user-interface guidelines.
143
144 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
145 control structures.
146
147 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
148
149 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
150 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
151 channel (omni mode).
152
153 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
154 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
155
156 * Minor configure fixes.
157
158
159 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
160
161 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
162
163 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
164 and on session file save.
165
166 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
167 on create time.
168
169 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
170
171
172 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
173
174 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
175 over the empty workspace area.
176
177 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
178 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
179 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
180 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
181
182 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
183 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
184
185 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
186 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
187
188 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
189 each sampler channel strip.
190
191 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
192 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
193
194 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
195 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
196
197 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
198 new sampler channel strip.
199
200 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
201 suggested in the following lines:
202
203 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
204 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
205 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
206 LOAD ENGINE ...
207 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
208 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
209
210
211 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
