130
131 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
132
133 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most

135
136 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
137
138 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to

153
154 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
155
156 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
157 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
158 instruments of the same file.
159
160 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
161 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
162
163
164 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
165
166 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
167
168 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
169
170 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

183
184 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
185
186 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
187
188 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
189
190 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
191 and make.
192
193 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
194 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
195 Debian 6.
196
197 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
198 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
199
200 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
201 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
202 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
203 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
204
205 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
206
207 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
208 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
209 wrong main widget hidden state.
210
211 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
212
213 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
214 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
215 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
216 targets (--enable-debug).
217
218 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
219
220 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
221 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
222 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
223
224 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
225 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
226
227 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
228 a menu separator has been added.
229
230 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
231 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
232
233 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
234 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
235 lame green solid background :).
236
237 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
238 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
239
240 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
241
242
243 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
244
245 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
246 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
247 ever may follow ;)
248
249 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
250
251 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
252 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
253 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
254 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
255 a sampler the next time.
256
257 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
258
259 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
260
261 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
262 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
263 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
264 (default none).
265
266 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
267 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
268 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
269
270 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
271 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
272 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
273 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
274
275 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
276 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
277
278 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
279 screwed.
280
281 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
282 e.g. by other frontends.
283
284 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
285 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
286 (fixes segfault on device changes)
287
288 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
289 "View" main menu.
290
291 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
292
293 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
294
295 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
296 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
297
298 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
299 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
300
301
302 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
303
304 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
305 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
306 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
307 default.
308
309 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
310 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
311
312 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
313 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
314
315 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
316 creating a new sampler channel.
317
318 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
319
320 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
321 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
322 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
323 first time).
324
325 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
326 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
327
328 * Added Windows file path support.
329
330 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
331 under win32.
332
333 * Qt4 port of the application.
334
335
336 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
337
338 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
339 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
340 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
341 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
342
343 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
344 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
345 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
346 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
347
348 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
349 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
350 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
351
352 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
353
354
355 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
356
357 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
358 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
359 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
360
361 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
362
363 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
364 the session state, only at code-level.
365
366 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
367 existing instrument file name.
368
369 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
370 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
371 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
372 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
373 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
374 corrected some tooltip text strings.
375
376 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
377 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
378 window managers.
379
380 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
381 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
382 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
383 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
384
385 * GPL address update.
386
387
388 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
389
390 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
391 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
392
393 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
394
395 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
396 installation paths have been added to configure command
397 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
398
399 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
400 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
401 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
402 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
403 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
404
405 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
406 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
407 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
408 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
409
410 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
411
412 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
413 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
414
415 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
416 title name prefix.
417
418 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
419 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
420 generated at configure time.
421
422 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
423 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
424 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
425 argument have some effect on X11.
426
427 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
428
429 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
430 compiled with -no-stl.
431
432
433 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
434
435 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
436 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
437 one, while on qjackctl).
438
439 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
440 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
441
442
443 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
444
445 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
446 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
447
448 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
449 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
450 info updates.
451
452 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
453 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
454 device dialog.
455
456 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
457
458 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
459 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
460 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
461 Mayat, for pointing these out).
462
463
464 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
465
466 * Device configuration is now complete.
467
468 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
469 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
470 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
471
472 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
473 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
474
475 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
476 an instrument.
477
478 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
479
480
481 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
482
483 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
484 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
485 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
486 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
487
488 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
489 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
490 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
491
492 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
493 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
494
495 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
496
497 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
498 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
499 change information are now also posted to messages window.
500
501 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
502 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
503 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
504 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
505
506 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
507 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
508 sampler instrument file.
509
510 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
511 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
512 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
513 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
514
515 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
516 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
517 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
518
519 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
520 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
521 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
522 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
523
524
525 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
526
527 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
528 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
529 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
530
531 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
532 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
533 following common user-interface guidelines.
534
535 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
536 control structures.
537
538 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
539
540 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
541 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
542 channel (omni mode).
543
544 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
545 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
546
547 * Minor configure fixes.
548
549
550 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
551
552 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
553
554 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
555 and on session file save.
556
557 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
558 on create time.
559
560 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
561
562
563 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
564
565 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
566 over the empty workspace area.
567
568 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
569 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
570 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
571 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
572
573 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
574 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
575
576 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
577 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
578
579 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
580 each sampler channel strip.
581
582 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
583 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
584
585 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
586 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
587
588 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
589 new sampler channel strip.
590
591 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
592 suggested in the following lines:
593
594 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
595 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
596 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
597 LOAD ENGINE ...
598 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
599 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
600
601
602 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
