4 Services are back online. After reviewing the recent server incident we
5 came to the conclusion that the attack was fortunately quite limited.
6 We rolled back the system, closed the exploited security
7 hole and brought all services back online. In case you downloaded or updated any source files
8 from our <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">svn server</link>
9 between March 2nd and March 3rd, we recommend you to
10 delete the entire source directory and make an entire fresh checkout from
11 svn to avoid any issues. The svn server is now back at a clean state.

14 <b>Important notice:</b>
15 Our server had been compromised. For that reason we were forced to take most
16 services offline for now to protect you from accessing any compromised material.
17 We are currently investigating this incident and will update you accordingly.

22 are back online: As you might have noticed, our
23 <link ref="http://bb.linuxsampler.org">Web Forum</link> as well as our
24 <link ref="http://bugs.linuxsampler.org">Bug Tracker</link> were partly
25 unavailable for quite a while. It was possible to read them, but especially
26 registration of new user accounts were disabled (i.e. due to numerous
27 spam bot attacks we suffered in the past). Those issues have been
28 resolved and so both sites are back available and should now work entirely
29 as expected.

52 A new documentation site has been launched:
53 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org">http://doc.linuxsampler.org</link> -
54 This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of
55 articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write
56 and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us
57 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Writing_Docs/">writing documentation</link>
58 for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now
59 hosting an introduction to the new
60 <link ref="http://doc.linuxsampler.org/Instrument_Scripts/NKSP_Language/">NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language</link>.
61 The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www
62 server to that new site.

66 For the Mac users out there: We finally have a convenient installer for the
67 OS X version of LinuxSampler. This is already integrated in our automatic
68 build system. So from now on all
69 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">daily snapshot builds for Mac</link>
70 are automatically built with an installer. By default the installer will
71 install all components (LinuxSampler stand-alone application, VST and
72 Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and
73 command line tools. At step "Installation Type" you can however also
74 override the default installation and select which components to install.

78 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/osx/snapshots/">gigedit finally included with OS X snapshots!</link>
79 Due to the variety of third party library dependencies it took a while, but
80 finally "gigedit", our graphical instrument editor for Gigasampler /
81 GigaStudio files, is now included with the automatic binary snapshots builds
82 for Mac OS X. The automatic snapshot installers are automatically compiled
83 by one of our servers each time a developer commits something new to our
84 Subversion (development) server. You can use gigedit on Mac OS X as
85 stand-alone instrument editor as well as in live-mode while running
86 LinuxSampler. In the latter case your changes with gigedit get immediately
87 audible while playing the instrument on the keyboard at the same time.

92 We are currently in the works to implement support for the SFZ format,
93 which is a powerful and open sample library format, already adopted by
94 many commercial samplers. Check our new SFZ status page to see which
95 aspects of the format are already supported by LinuxSampler, and which
96 ones are yet to be implemented.

101 Following our ongoing sympathy for automatic snapshots, we finally provide
102 automatic builds also for Apple OS X! As soon as some developer commits
103 something new to our Subversion server, a new binary snapshot for OS X will
104 automatically be available for download from our webserver within minutes.
105 The snapshot tbz2 archive file contains universal binaries
106 (PPC 32 bit, Intel 32 &amp; 64 bit) of the stand-alone version of the
107 sampler, VST and AU plugin version, and the graphical frontend applications
108 QSampler and Fantasia. Only our graphical instrument editor gigedit is not
109 yet part of the snapshots, it might follow at a later point. Please read
110 the README file in the tbz2 archive file for instructions how to install
111 everything on your Mac.

115 From now on, our source code is managed by a Subversion server. We
116 converted our existing CVS repository for the
117 <link ref="http://svn.linuxsampler.org">new Subversion server</link>, so
118 the complete history from the beginning of this project is also
119 available in this new Subversion repository. Our
120 <link ref="http://cvs.linuxsampler.org">old CVS server, along with its web frontend</link>
121 is still available, however is now in read only mode, so no changes can be
122 commited to CVS anymore. On the downloads page you can find

124 to download ("checkout") source code from our Subversion server.</link>

128 After a huge down time of almost one month, we decided to move to new, more
129 reliable servers. Thanks to the University of Heilbronn which kindly hosted
130 our servers for 8 years. We started to move the most important services to
131 a commercial server host, which will be financed by your donations. Sorry
132 for this long absence and thank you for your support!

136 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/packages/win32/snapshots/">Download the latest Windows snapshot of the sampler!</link>
137 Since we have to confess that we are a bit lazy about putting out official
138 releases, and since the latest official release of the sampler for Windows
139 is quite old, we decided to establish automatic builts of the sampler and
140 all other software components for Windows. As soon as some developer
141 commits something new to the CVS server for any of the project's software
142 components, a new snapshot binary for Windows will automatically built and
143 be available for download within few minutes. Sorry for neglecting you
144 Windows users out there for so long!

148 In case you are working a lot on Native Instruments Kontakt instrument
149 files, or if you are just interested in the .nki file format, you might have
150 a look at <link ref="nkitool/">nkitool</link>. It is a simple console
151 application which allows to export and import the human readable XML file
152 from and to Native Instruments Kontakt .nki instrument articulation files.
153 It can be very handy to speedup or even automate the process of creating
154 and editing .nki instrument files.

170 Better a late than no announcement at all:
171 <list>
172 <li>linuxsampler 1.0.0</li>
173 <li>Fantasia 0.9</li>
174 <li>qsampler 0.2.2</li>

177 <li>jlscp 0.8</li>
178 <li>liblscp 0.5.6</li>
179 </list>
180 This is the first release which allows the sampler to be used as audio
181 host plugin, namely supporting the standards VST, AU, DSSI and LV2. The
182 sampler's limits for max. voices &amp; disk streams can now be altered at
183 runtime by frontends, no need to recompile the sampler anymore. The Mac
184 version now also supports CoreAudio as audio driver. The Windows version
185 finally supports the sampler's instruments DB feature as well, however
186 expect it still to be unstable at this point. Along to the already
187 existing JACK audio driver, Jack MIDI support has been added in this
188 release. The sampler allows frontends now basic MIDI control, that is to
189 monitor incoming MIDI data on MIDI input devices and sampler channels and
190 to send note-on and note-off MIDI events to sampler channels, which
191 allows frontends to provide a virtual MIDI keyboard to the user. Besides
192 these major changes there were countless bugfixes and optimizations.

195 On the finish line to the upcoming next release of LinuxSampler and
196 friends, a beta pre-release for the Windows platform is now available
197 from our
198 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/dev/win/">download server</link>.
199 This is the first Windows version which includes a VST plugin version
200 of the sampler. The installer includes both, native 64 bit binaries and
201 32 bit binaries. The installer detects the system type and installs the
202 appropriate binaries automatically.

240 Hey Mac Users! We hope to give you a good way to start the new year
241 by announcing that LinuxSampler is now officially
242 available for OS X as well! You find an installer (disk image) of the
243 latest release of LinuxSampler and QSampler for OS X on our
244 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads site</link>.
245 Please note: gigedit is not yet available for Mac, we still need to do some
246 work on this. Same applies to JSampler unfortunately, because the required
247 Java version 1.6 is not officially available for Mac yet. Have a look

271 What do you expect from a sampler called LinuxSampler? Exactly: that it
272 <link ref="screenshots/win32_premiere.png">conquers the Windows
273 world</link>. This is the first official release of our applications for
274 the Windows platform, providing a convenient all-in-one installer tagged
275 "20071207". Supported drivers for this new system are so far: MME for
276 MIDI and ASIO for audio. Needless to say that there still might be
277 plenty of issues on Windows. Also note that the instruments database
278 feature is not ported yet. Have a look at the
279 <link ref="windows.html">Windows HOWTO</link> for a smooth start.
280 Beside this first Windows release, this is merely a bugfix release, i.e.
281 fixing a serious crash in LinuxSampler. Retrieving instrument names from
282 .gig files with the frontends is now much faster, so better keep that
283 option always on in QSampler from now on. With gigedit you can now edit
284 multiple (dimension) regions simultaniously. JSampler is finally able
285 to retrieve instrument names of instrument files and even remotely from
286 another machine, beside minor cosmetics like a total stream count
287 and volume displayed in dB, as well as couple bug fixes. QSampler gave
288 Qt3 an official funeral and is finally completely ported to Qt4. A lot
289 of the QSampler code base has changed due to this. So you still might
290 encounter bugs. Beside that the device management dialog received couple
291 of bug fixes.

294 As you might have noticed, we had issues with our linuxsampler.org DNS

310 </list>
311 With our new instrument editor
312 <link ref="http://linuxsampler.org/screenshots/gigedit_0_0_3.png">gigedit</link>
313 we can finally modify existing, as well as create new Gigasampler format
314 instruments from scratch, which are not only accepted by LinuxSampler, but
315 also by Gigastudio. You can run gigedit as stand-alone application or
316 <link ref="http://download.linuxsampler.org/doc/gigedit/quickstart/gigedit_quickstart.html#live_editing">
317 "attached" to LinuxSampler</link>. The latter case allows you to play and edit
318 instruments at the same time, making all your modifications immediately
319 audible, without having to reload the instruments into the sampler. You can
320 simply edit instruments by selecting the respective sampler channel and
321 clicking on "Edit" (in QSampler as well as in JSampler). LinuxSampler now
322 provides a very powerful and easy MIDI program change mapping, which not
323 only allows you to define which instrument to load on which MIDI program
324 change number (and bank), it also allows further parameters like whether
325 the instrument shall be pre-cached or loaded only when needed (and likewise
326 freed when not needed). You can create arbitrary amount of effect sends for
327 each sampler channel, each having an arbitrary MIDI controller for
328 altering the effect send level in realtime and each one can flexible be routed to
329 some of the sampler's audio output channels, i.e. to a dedicated one for a
330 certain effect type (managing FX sends is yet only supported by JSampler,
331 not by QSampler yet). The new instruments database on sampler side allows
332 you to keep track even of largest instrument library collections. You can
333 order them in categories and search by various criteria (you can find this
334 feature as "Instruments Database" in JSampler, it's not yet supported by QSampler).
335 Loading huge instruments may take a while, that's why the sampler now
336 allows to play an instrument while loading. That way you can i.e. play and
337 hold notes on the keyboard while loading a new instrument on the same
338 sampler channel at the same time.

412 Major services (CVS, downloads, Bug Tracking System) were down in the last
413 days due to a hardware defect on one of our servers. CVS is finally up
414 again and we are working on restoring all other services in the next days
415 as well. We are also establishing further backup facilities to prevent this
416 happening again. Sorry for any inconvenience!

464 the Qt GUI front-end in the works for the LinuxSampler engine, was bumped
465 to its now fifth primordial release (0.0.5). Still alpha code. Time to move
466 on... to a better and complete Audio/MIDI device configuration interface,
467 as predicted by LSCP and wrapped by liblscp.

470 Due to a design change, current LinuxSampler CVS version is quite unstable.
471 You might want to use the previous, stable version of LS in the meantime,
472 which can be downloaded as
473 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">source tarball
474 </link>. Alternatively you can also checkout the old version from CVS which
475 was tagged as "v0_2_0".

507 We are currently in a transition stage due to the recent changes (multi
508 channel / multi engine / multi audio output device and multi MIDI input
509 device support) this also leads to multi problems we have to solve ;-) so
510 meanwhile you can use the old single channel version. We created the two
511 CVS alias tags 'singlechannel' and 'v0_1_0' which you can use to checkout
512 the old single channel version of LinuxSampler. The CVS command line is the
513 same except that you have to add '-r singlechannel'.

536 Lots of news for the Linuxsampler community. We've got a new site, new
537 domain and new code available in CVS. Check the
538 <link ref="http://www.linuxsampler.org/downloads.html">downloads</link>
539 section for instructions. If you want to check it out, please keep in mind
540 that it might contain bugs, it might crash and that it's still lacking tons
541 of features. CVS is directed towards developers who would like to test
542 things and add code. Users should wait for a tarball release.
