* Increased crossfade curve preview dimensions
  (280px X 80px -> 500px X 100px).

1 Version SVN trunk (?)
3 * Script Editor: Added syntax highlighting support for standard measurement
4 units (and their potential metric prefix).
5 * Require C++11 compliant compiler.
6 * Draw LFO curves according to settings for each one of the 3 LFOs.
7 * Added 2 new tabs (a 3rd tab for "Amp" and a 3rd tab for "Filter").
8 * Shortened "Amplitude" -> "Amp" on tabs (to save space).
9 * Increased default window width 865px -> 960px.
10 * Script Editor: Show warning message in status line if Gigedit was compiled
11 without liblinuxsampler support (to make user aware about limited features).
12 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added combo box for selecting a wave form type
13 for each one of the 3 LFOs (i.e. for overriding the default LFO sine wave
14 form to either triangle, saw or square instead).
15 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added slider for each one of the 3 LFOs for
16 altering the phase displacement of the respective LFO (that is for moving
17 the LFO's start level horizontally on the time axis).
18 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added checkbox "Flip Phase" to LFO 3
19 (the original Gigasampler/GigaStudio software only supported that option
20 for LFO 1 and LFO 2).
21 * Increased crossfade curve preview dimensions
22 (280px X 80px -> 500px X 100px).
24 Version 1.1.1 (2019-07-27)
26 * Script Editor: Fixed some minor issues with vertical line number bar
27 (which was editable, selectable and incorrectly displayed on new scripts).
28 * Translation Fix: MacroEditor.cpp and MacrosSetup.cpp were not under
29 translation control.
30 * Spelling fixes (patch provided by Debian maintainer Jarom��r Mike��).
31 * Added new main menu item "View" -> "Tooltips for Beginners" which allows
32 to disable tooltips intended for newbies only (default: on).
33 * Extended support for keyboard function keys up to F19.
34 * List assigned scripts as colored tooltip when hovering mouse over the
35 "Scripts" column in the instruments list.
36 * Added global keyboard accelerator Shift + Backspace for dropping all script
37 slots from an instrument.
38 * Added option to save as gig v4 file (File -> Properties).
39 * Fixed duplicate items in File -> Properties -> "File Format" combo box.
40 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added combo box "Sustain Release Trigger" which
41 can be used to optionally play release trigger samples on sustain pedal up.
42 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added check box "No note-off release trigger"
43 which allows to disable release trigger samples on regular MIDI note-off.
44 * Fixed compiler errors with Gtk 3.24.x (patch by Miroslav ��ulc).
45 * Fixed some compiler warnings
46 * Avoid non-standard offsetof usage (to get rid of gcc warnings)
47 * Use GDK Seat API if available to grab pointer
48 * Improve version checks for pangomm
49 * Fix the instrument list tooltip handling so it doesn't generate
50 GTK assertion error messages
51 * Use English quotation marks in tooltips instead of German
52 * Use multiple columns in controller value popups, as tall popup

54 * Avoid deprecated sigc++ usage
55 * Fix build on old linux environments
56 * Enable "silent rules" in build
57 * Fix memory read access bug
58 * Refactor code: add common base class for Loader and Saver
59 * Fix resource leak: join loader and saver threads after use

71 * allow building with G/GDK/GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
72 * fixed building without linuxsampler on Mac
73 * fixed some compiler and cppcheck warnings
74 * synthesis paremeter page tabs are now scrollable (fixes an issue with
75 GTK 3: default theme uses huge tabs which breaks the overall layout on
76 average window sizes)
77 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
78 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
79 * NKSP Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP syntax
80 highlighting backend.
81 * Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on
82 the NKSP refrence documentation website).
83 * Script Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP parser
84 backend for displaying parser errors and warnings directly within
85 the source code.
86 * User settings are now automatically saved and restored.
87 * Automatically save & restore window size and position.
88 * Script Editor: Show precise parser error/warning messages as tooltip
89 when the mouse points over the respective location in the script's
90 source code.

94 window showing the amount (if any) of errors and warnings.
95 * Script Editor: Added menu bar and two initial entries: "Apply" (Ctrl-S)
96 and "Close" (Ctrl-Q).
97 * Script Editor: if editor is used in live-mode, inform the sampler that
98 it needs to automatically reload the script after the script has been
99 altered and applied with the script editor.
100 * Added setting to main menu "View" -> "Auto Restore Window Dimension"
101 (disabled by default since it causes issues on some machines).
102 * Fixed crash after changing a dimension type with the dimension manager
103 dialog.
104 * Script Editor: Fixed editor which did not appear on some systems due
105 to missing icons (using now lists of alternative icon names).
106 * Script Editor: Added "Font Size ..." selection to editor's menu.
107 * Script Editor: Fixed crash on Ctrl + A, followed by Del.
108 * fixed crash when opening dimension manager dialolg multiple times
109 (and i.e. adding or removing dimensions each time)
110 * Show sample group name and CRC-32 checksum on "Sample" tab.
111 * Show instrument index number on instruments list view.
112 * Added multi-row selection support on samples tree view.
113 * Added multi-row selection support on instruments list view.
114 * windows, 32-bit: fixed crashes by making sure the stack in sub
115 threads is 16-byte aligned
116 * windows: look for the data directory in the parent of the dll
117 directory, if the dll directory is called "32" or "64"
118 * Implemented resizing multiple dimension region zones at once, which is
119 controlled by the infamous checkbox trio "all regions",
120 "all dimension splits" and "both channels".
121 * Implemented deleting dimension region zones of all regions at once, which
122 is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
123 * Implemented splitting up dimension region zones of all regions at once,
124 which is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
125 * Show graphical symbol on region that uses loop(s).
126 * Show graphical symbol on region that misses sample reference(s).
127 * Fixed crash on saving file if a sample was requested to be replaced twice
128 by the user.
129 * Implemented fast navigation through regions by keyboard accelerator
130 Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right (on Mac: Cmd+Left and Cmd+Right).
131 * Implemented fast navigation through dimension region zones of currently
132 selected region by keyboard accelerator Alt+Left, Alt+Right, Alt+Up,
133 Alt+Down, as well as simply using the arrow keys alone if the dimension
134 region chooser got focus (i.e. when it was selected by mouse previously).
135 * Color tweaking on selected regions and selected dimension zones.
136 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show main selected case in opaque blue color
137 (like before), but all other selected dimension zones with a blue hatched
138 pattern instead.
139 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show the label of the currently selected
140 dimension in bold font.

144 * Dimension Region Chooser: Mark all zones auto selected by check box trio
145 with gray hatched pattern.
146 * Region Chooser: Mark all regions which are auto selected by check box
147 "All Regions" with gray hatched pattern.
148 * Introduced "Macro Editor" for adjusting clipboard content before applying
149 it (accessible via Alt+x).
150 * Introduced configurable list of macros which are auto assigned to keyboard
151 accelerators (F1 ... F12) and saved along with the app's config file.
152 * Macro Editor: Fixed deleting rows when delete button was hit without Ctrl
153 being pressed.
154 * Macro Editor: Show combo box with textual options for enum types.
155 * "Macro" main menu section: show macro comments as tooltip.
156 * Macro Editor: Display demangled C++ type names.
157 * Macros Setup: Implemented cloning of macros.
158 * Live mode performance optimization: fixed the editor to be non-responsive
159 for a very long time, which happened if changing instrument parameters of a
160 very large amount of dimension regions was requested.
161 * Macro Editor: Handle boolean parameter types appropriately, i.e. show
162 'Yes' or 'NO' instead of '1' or '0'.
163 * GTK3: Bringing back icons and keyboard accelerators / mnemonics for menus
164 and buttons with GTK3; Cudos to those GTK heros who thought it might be
165 a clever idea to simply remove such features for all users, all devices
166 and all apps by default with GTK3!
167 * Autoconf: check for presence of at least gtk+-2.0-dev.
168 * Instruments list view: show amount of real-time instruments scripts used
169 by instrument.
170 * Script Editor: Fixed Gtk crash while entering a variety of ill formed code
171 like unterminated string literals.
172 * Assigned more useful default dimensions (and default position) for various
173 windows and dialogs (if auto-restore of user's own custom window
174 dimensions is disabled).
175 * Mac fix: Make sure app window appears in front of all other apps.
176 * Script Editor: only if compiled without liblinuxsampler; added support for
177 new NKSP language keyword "synchronized".
178 * Script Editor: strike through code blocks filtered out by the preprocessor.
179 * Combine Tool: Show instruments' index number in the list view.
180 * Combine Tool: Now it allows to select the instruments to be combined
181 already in the main window's instruments list view; then either call the
182 combine instrument dialog from the main menu or use the new keyboard
183 shortcut Ctrl + j.
184 * Combine Tool: Added a vertical list which represents the order of the
185 selected instruments to be combined; dragging them modifies their order.
186 * Combine Tool: After returning from the combine tool dialog, automatically
187 scroll to the newly added (combined) instrument.
188 * Draw icons on individual dimension region zones, similar to the icons
189 already been drawn on regions.
190 * Fixed loop and sample reference icons being displayed incorrectly sometimes,
191 because unused dimension regions were not ignored.
192 * Script Editor: Show line numbers.
193 * Script Editor: Right aligned line numbers.
194 * Script Editor: Fixed font readability issue on Mac.
195 * Added EG state machine options for EG1 and EG2, which may be used to
196 configure whether the individual EG stages may be cancelled.
197 * Fix: after the combine instruments dialog, the new instrument was not
198 correctly displayed by the GUI as being selected.
199 * Fix: automatically reload instrument after script slots have been modified.
200 * Combine Tool: OK button has focus now by default to quickly combine
201 instruments by pressing Return key.

203 a script to the currently selected instrument, and an appropriate
204 additional menu "Instruments" -> "Assign Script".
205 * Added keyboard accelerators Ctrl + Arrow Down and Ctrl + Arrow Up for
206 switching between instruments.
207 * Added search filter field which allows to quickly filter the instrument
208 list by case insensitive search tokens.
209 * Fix: navigating between dimension zones by keyboard did sometimes not
210 work after switching from an instrument with different dimension types.
211 * Fix: Sample references view dialog had some odd behaviors, like it did not
212 respond to mouse scroll events for instance.
213 * Debian: Raised Debian compatibility level to Debian 9 "Stretch".
214 * Raised max. pitchbend range to 48 semi tones.
215 * Added experimental support for upcoming GTK(MM)4
216 (for now up to GTKMM 3.91.2 while still preserving backward compatibility
217 down to GTKMM 2).
218 * Re-merged r2845 to compile now with and without Gtk "Stock ID" API
219 (see also r3158).
220 * Visual cosmetics on Gtk 3.
221 * Script Editor: Use consistent font size on all screens and DPI settings.
223 Version 1.0.0 (2015-07-17)
225 * minor fix in configure for cross-compiling
226 * minor Makefile fix for parallel make
227 * use Cairo instead of deprecated gdk drawing primitives
228 * avoid deprecated gtk methods when using newer gtk versions
229 * raised minimum supported gtkmm version to 2.8
230 * ported to gtkmm 3, keeping compatibility with gtkmm 2
231 * gtkmm 3 fix: rewrote the custom widgets (regionchooser and
232 dimregionchooser) so they only draw pixels in the on_draw
233 method. This should make them work again in newer gtkmm 3
234 environments.
235 * added support for new glibmm threads API
236 * gtkmm 3 fix: the WrapLabel custom widget is not needed in gtkmm 3
237 * fixed building on Debian testing (#186)
238 * modernized configure script
239 * added graphical curves for velocity response and crossfade
240 * added "Duplicate Instrument" function

242 * code refactoring: created a PropEdit class for property editor
243 windows, moved Table class from mainwindow to paramedit
244 * minor gui tweaks: made note entry fields a bit wider, set a
245 minimum width for scales
246 * bug fix: avoid stale information in the instrument properties
247 window when a new file is loaded or the instrument is removed
248 * cross fade graph: draw curves of all layers in the same graph
249 * made sure the instruments menu is updated when instruments are
250 added, removed or renamed
251 * fixed name entry field in instrument properties window
252 * use character encoding Windows-1252 for all strings in gig files
253 * show dimension zone start and end as numeric text labels
254 * copying sample informations automatically may now be disabled from the
255 new "Edit" main menu
256 * import 'fine tune' when importing samples with libsndfile
257 * Mac OS X: initialize gtk and gettext with files from base
258 directory of the libgigedit library
259 * Mac OS X: fixed "recently used" in file dialogs
260 * Mac OS X: avoid crash when starting gigedit as an application
261 bundle

266 right click on the region chooser area to add a region
267 * added tooltips to main menu entries (was buggy before)
268 * added tooltips to instruments tree view and samples tree view
269 * added various tooltips and adjusted some labels on the region settings
270 pane
271 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: only a small set of possible MIDI controllers
272 was selectable for EG1 controller, EG2 controller and attenuation
273 controller (and no CC number was shown in the combo box). Obviously the
274 additional MIDI controllers can only be used with LinuxSampler, they would
275 not work with Gigasampler/GigaStudio. A warning message will be shown
276 though whenever somebody tries to use one of those extension controllers.
277 * Combine instruments: a new feature that allows to merge a selection of
278 instruments to one new single instrument. It uses the 'layer' dimension
279 to stack up the instruments. This feature is available from the main menu
280 under 'Tools' -> 'Combine Instruments'.
281 * Dimension zone amount: Support for increasing and decreasing the amount of
282 dimension zones by right clicking on the respective zone and either
283 selecting "delete" or "split" in the popup menu.
284 * Combine instruments: generalized this tool to allow combining instruments
285 based on any dimension, not only the 'layer' dimension.
286 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: show dialog window with at least 460x300px on
287 initial usage (was far too small by default).
288 * File Property Dialog: allow viewing and altering the Giga file format
289 version (by combo box).
290 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: added support for viewing and editing
291 dimensions of all regions simultaniously.
292 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing and editing
293 real-time instrument scripts. Instrument scripts are a LinuxSampler
294 extension of the original Giga format and will not load with the
295 GigaStudio software.
296 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing script slots for
297 instruments. Script slots define which scripts shall be executed for an
298 instrument by the sampler and in which order.
299 * Samples tree view on main window: display the amount of references for
300 each sample and show the respective sample in gray color in case it is not
301 referenced at all.
302 * Samples tree view: implemented sample reference browser, which shows a
303 tree with all instruments and their respective regions which reference the
304 selected sample once ore more.
305 * Restructured main menu: duplicated all popup menus to the main menu,
306 automatically switch to the right tree view tab when either selecting the
307 "Sample", "Instrument" or "Script" main menu entry.
308 * Dimension Region Selector: implemented multi zone selection by press and
309 hold CTRL key.
310 * Dimension Region Selector: show bottom and upper limit values for all
311 dimension zones, not just the currently selected ones.
312 * Dimension Region Selector: Fixed drawing issues when zone sizes were
313 altered by mouse drag and labels being displayed at wrong positions.
314 * Region Chooser: Double click opens dimension manager dialog.
315 * Dimension Manager: Clicking on dimension type cell of an existing dimension
316 opens a popup to alter the dimension type.
317 * Script Tree: Double click opens script editor.
318 * Fixed potential crash if exception was thrown while opening a gig file.
319 * Added support for visual progress bar while saving a gig file.
320 * Automatically switch the sampler's (audible) instrument whenever another
321 instrument was selected in gigedit (this default behavior can be switched
322 off in the settings menu of gigedit).
323 * Dimension Region Editor: Show coarse sample format info (audio channels,
324 bit depth, sample rate) and unique sample ID (since the gig format allows
325 different samples to have the same name).
326 * Dimension Region Editor: Added button "Select Sample" on the sample tab,
327 which allows to conveniently select the dimension region's sample on the
328 left hand side's samples tree view.
329 * Sample Referenve View Dialog: Clicking on a reference in the list closes
330 the dialog and jumps directly to the respective instrument, region and
331 dimension region the respective sample reference is located at.
332 * Fixed instruments, samples and scripts to appear twice after save.
333 * Implemented reordering of instruments by drag & drop.
334 * Implemented replacing of existing samples.
335 * Added "X" button next to sample reference field, which allows to remove
336 the current sample reference, allowing to create a "silent case" where
337 no sample shall be played.
338 * Fixed file name disappearing from title bar on certain actions.
339 * Added new menu item "View"->"Refresh All".
340 * Added new menu item "Samples"->"Remove Unused Samples".
341 * Region Chooser: when moving a region around automatically move the
342 keyboard position dependent pitch accordingly (can be turned off with
343 "Settings"->"Move root key with region moved").
344 * Added option to main menu for performing "Save" operation with a
345 tempoary file (may perform faster than directly modifying existing
346 .gig file).
348 Version 0.2.0 (2009-07-31)
350 * fixed file properties dialog - properties now can be edited
351 * gig files where regions are not internally ordered are now handled
352 * the resize mouse pointer is not shown anymore for regions that
353 can't be resized
354 * the region and dimregion chooser widgets are now resizable
355 * bugfix: sometimes you could not delete more than one dimension
356 * filter headers are now also greyed out when the filter is inactive
357 * autoconf fix: LS plugin dirs with digits in their prefix
358 (e.g. "/usr/lib64/foo") are now resolved in relative dirs as well
359 (show a warning when resolving the relative path failed)
360 * keys on the virtual keyboard now highlight on note on events on
361 sampler side
362 * virtual keyboard can now trigger notes for the sampler (only in
363 live-mode of course)
364 * implemented alternative behavior for the virtual MIDI keyboard
365 (selectable by combobox below the keyboard)
366 * show absolute velocity value of note-on & note-off events below
367 the virtual MIDI keyboard
368 * renamed misleading names regarding the gig format's "keyswitching"
369 feature (the dimension is now displayed as "keyswitching" instead of
370 "keyboard" in the dimregchooser widget and the two parameters for
371 defining the actual keyswitching area on the keyboard in the instruments
372 properties dialog are now called "Keyswitching range low/high" instead of
373 "Dimension key range low/high")
374 * added "replace all samples" function to samples popup menu
375 (patch by Anders Dahnielson, a bit extended, fixes #73)
376 * bugfix: dimension manager window didn't update when another region
377 was selected (#78)
378 * in "Save As..." dialog set inital filename to "copy_of_<filename>" and
379 show a warning message that saving to the same .gig file will corrupt
380 the sample wave data
381 * fixed compilation with gcc 4.3
382 * the "Add Samples" dialog now remembers current directory (patch by
383 Devin Anderson, fixes #81)
384 * it is now possible to create dimensions where the amount of zones
385 isn't a power of two (patch by Devin Anderson, #89, slightly
386 modified)
387 * fixed configure check for libsndfile loop support
388 * bugfix: when a stereo sample is replaced, make sure both zones of
