* Preparations for new release (Gigedit 1.1.0).

1 Version 1.1.0 (2017-11-25)
3 * allow building with G/GDK/GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED
4 * fixed building without linuxsampler on Mac
5 * fixed some compiler and cppcheck warnings
6 * synthesis paremeter page tabs are now scrollable (fixes an issue with
7 GTK 3: default theme uses huge tabs which breaks the overall layout on
8 average window sizes)
9 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
10 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
11 * NKSP Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP syntax
12 highlighting backend.
13 * Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on
14 the NKSP refrence documentation website).
15 * Script Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP parser
16 backend for displaying parser errors and warnings directly within
17 the source code.
18 * User settings are now automatically saved and restored.
19 * Automatically save & restore window size and position.
20 * Script Editor: Show precise parser error/warning messages as tooltip
21 when the mouse points over the respective location in the script's
22 source code.
23 * Script Editor: Show a question dialog to the user when the editor is
24 to be closed and the script changes have not been applied yet.
25 * Script Editor: Added status bar at the bottom of the script editor
26 window showing the amount (if any) of errors and warnings.
27 * Script Editor: Added menu bar and two initial entries: "Apply" (Ctrl-S)
28 and "Close" (Ctrl-Q).
29 * Script Editor: if editor is used in live-mode, inform the sampler that
30 it needs to automatically reload the script after the script has been
31 altered and applied with the script editor.
32 * Added setting to main menu "View" -> "Auto Restore Window Dimension"
33 (disabled by default since it causes issues on some machines).
34 * Fixed crash after changing a dimension type with the dimension manager
35 dialog.
36 * Script Editor: Fixed editor which did not appear on some systems due
37 to missing icons (using now lists of alternative icon names).
38 * Script Editor: Added "Font Size ..." selection to editor's menu.
39 * Script Editor: Fixed crash on Ctrl + A, followed by Del.
40 * fixed crash when opening dimension manager dialolg multiple times
41 (and i.e. adding or removing dimensions each time)
42 * Show sample group name and CRC-32 checksum on "Sample" tab.
43 * Show instrument index number on instruments list view.
44 * Added multi-row selection support on samples tree view.
45 * Added multi-row selection support on instruments list view.
46 * windows, 32-bit: fixed crashes by making sure the stack in sub
47 threads is 16-byte aligned
48 * windows: look for the data directory in the parent of the dll
49 directory, if the dll directory is called "32" or "64"
50 * Implemented resizing multiple dimension region zones at once, which is
51 controlled by the infamous checkbox trio "all regions",
52 "all dimension splits" and "both channels".
53 * Implemented deleting dimension region zones of all regions at once, which
54 is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
55 * Implemented splitting up dimension region zones of all regions at once,
56 which is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
57 * Show graphical symbol on region that uses loop(s).
58 * Show graphical symbol on region that misses sample reference(s).
59 * Fixed crash on saving file if a sample was requested to be replaced twice
60 by the user.
61 * Implemented fast navigation through regions by keyboard accelerator
62 Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right (on Mac: Cmd+Left and Cmd+Right).
63 * Implemented fast navigation through dimension region zones of currently
64 selected region by keyboard accelerator Alt+Left, Alt+Right, Alt+Up,
65 Alt+Down, as well as simply using the arrow keys alone if the dimension
66 region chooser got focus (i.e. when it was selected by mouse previously).
67 * Color tweaking on selected regions and selected dimension zones.
68 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show main selected case in opaque blue color
69 (like before), but all other selected dimension zones with a blue hatched
70 pattern instead.
71 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show the label of the currently selected
72 dimension in bold font.
73 * Implemented selecting multiple dimension region zones by keyboard with
74 keyboard accelerators Alt+Shift+Left and Alt+Shift+Right.
75 * Implemented copy & paste of DimensionRegion (with Alt+c and Alt+v).
76 * Dimension Region Chooser: Mark all zones auto selected by check box trio
77 with gray hatched pattern.
78 * Region Chooser: Mark all regions which are auto selected by check box
79 "All Regions" with gray hatched pattern.
80 * Introduced "Macro Editor" for adjusting clipboard content before applying
81 it (accessible via Alt+x).
82 * Introduced configurable list of macros which are auto assigned to keyboard
83 accelerators (F1 ... F12) and saved along with the app's config file.
84 * Macro Editor: Fixed deleting rows when delete button was hit without Ctrl
85 being pressed.
86 * Macro Editor: Show combo box with textual options for enum types.
87 * "Macro" main menu section: show macro comments as tooltip.
88 * Macro Editor: Display demangled C++ type names.
89 * Macros Setup: Implemented cloning of macros.
90 * Live mode performance optimization: fixed the editor to be non-responsive
91 for a very long time, which happened if changing instrument parameters of a
92 very large amount of dimension regions was requested.
93 * Macro Editor: Handle boolean parameter types appropriately, i.e. show
94 'Yes' or 'NO' instead of '1' or '0'.
95 * GTK3: Bringing back icons and keyboard accelerators / mnemonics for menus
96 and buttons with GTK3; Cudos to those GTK heros who thought it might be
97 a clever idea to simply remove such features for all users, all devices
98 and all apps by default with GTK3!
99 * Autoconf: check for presence of at least gtk+-2.0-dev.
100 * Instruments list view: show amount of real-time instruments scripts used
101 by instrument.
102 * Script Editor: Fixed Gtk crash while entering a variety of ill formed code
103 like unterminated string literals.
104 * Assigned more useful default dimensions (and default position) for various
105 windows and dialogs (if auto-restore of user's own custom window
106 dimensions is disabled).
107 * Mac fix: Make sure app window appears in front of all other apps.
108 * Script Editor: only if compiled without liblinuxsampler; added support for
109 new NKSP language keyword "synchronized".
110 * Script Editor: strike through code blocks filtered out by the preprocessor.
111 * Combine Tool: Show instruments' index number in the list view.
112 * Combine Tool: Now it allows to select the instruments to be combined
113 already in the main window's instruments list view; then either call the
114 combine instrument dialog from the main menu or use the new keyboard
115 shortcut Ctrl + j.
116 * Combine Tool: Added a vertical list which represents the order of the
117 selected instruments to be combined; dragging them modifies their order.
118 * Combine Tool: After returning from the combine tool dialog, automatically
119 scroll to the newly added (combined) instrument.
120 * Draw icons on individual dimension region zones, similar to the icons
121 already been drawn on regions.
122 * Fixed loop and sample reference icons being displayed incorrectly sometimes,
123 because unused dimension regions were not ignored.
124 * Script Editor: Show line numbers.
125 * Script Editor: Right aligned line numbers.
126 * Script Editor: Fixed font readability issue on Mac.
127 * Added EG state machine options for EG1 and EG2, which may be used to
128 configure whether the individual EG stages may be cancelled.
129 * Fix: after the combine instruments dialog, the new instrument was not
130 correctly displayed by the GUI as being selected.
131 * Fix: automatically reload instrument after script slots have been modified.
132 * Combine Tool: OK button has focus now by default to quickly combine
133 instruments by pressing Return key.
134 * Added keyboard accelerators Shift+F1 to Shift+F12 for quick assigning
135 a script to the currently selected instrument, and an appropriate
136 additional menu "Instruments" -> "Assign Script".
137 * Added keyboard accelerators Ctrl + Arrow Down and Ctrl + Arrow Up for
138 switching between instruments.
139 * Added search filter field which allows to quickly filter the instrument
140 list by case insensitive search tokens.
141 * Fix: navigating between dimension zones by keyboard did sometimes not
142 work after switching from an instrument with different dimension types.
143 * Fix: Sample references view dialog had some odd behaviors, like it did not
144 respond to mouse scroll events for instance.
145 * Debian: Raised Debian compatibility level to Debian 9 "Stretch".
146 * Raised max. pitchbend range to 48 semi tones.
147 * Added experimental support for upcoming GTK(MM)4
148 (for now up to GTKMM 3.91.2 while still preserving backward compatibility
149 down to GTKMM 2).
150 * Re-merged r2845 to compile now with and without Gtk "Stock ID" API
151 (see also r3158).
152 * Visual cosmetics on Gtk 3.
153 * Script Editor: Use consistent font size on all screens and DPI settings.
155 Version 1.0.0 (2015-07-17)
157 * minor fix in configure for cross-compiling
158 * minor Makefile fix for parallel make
159 * use Cairo instead of deprecated gdk drawing primitives
160 * avoid deprecated gtk methods when using newer gtk versions
161 * raised minimum supported gtkmm version to 2.8
162 * ported to gtkmm 3, keeping compatibility with gtkmm 2
163 * gtkmm 3 fix: rewrote the custom widgets (regionchooser and
164 dimregionchooser) so they only draw pixels in the on_draw
165 method. This should make them work again in newer gtkmm 3
166 environments.
167 * added support for new glibmm threads API
168 * gtkmm 3 fix: the WrapLabel custom widget is not needed in gtkmm 3
169 * fixed building on Debian testing (#186)
170 * modernized configure script
171 * added graphical curves for velocity response and crossfade
172 * added "Duplicate Instrument" function
173 * fixed import of 32 bit float wav files
174 * code refactoring: created a PropEdit class for property editor
175 windows, moved Table class from mainwindow to paramedit
176 * minor gui tweaks: made note entry fields a bit wider, set a
177 minimum width for scales
178 * bug fix: avoid stale information in the instrument properties
179 window when a new file is loaded or the instrument is removed
180 * cross fade graph: draw curves of all layers in the same graph
181 * made sure the instruments menu is updated when instruments are
182 added, removed or renamed
183 * fixed name entry field in instrument properties window
184 * use character encoding Windows-1252 for all strings in gig files
185 * show dimension zone start and end as numeric text labels
186 * copying sample informations automatically may now be disabled from the
187 new "Edit" main menu
188 * import 'fine tune' when importing samples with libsndfile
189 * Mac OS X: initialize gtk and gettext with files from base
190 directory of the libgigedit library
191 * Mac OS X: fixed "recently used" in file dialogs
192 * Mac OS X: avoid crash when starting gigedit as an application
193 bundle
194 * Mac OS X: try to launch the GUI on the process's "main" thread
195 * show build date and libgig version number in about dialog
196 * added dialog for editing the CtrlTrigger and Legato midi rules
197 * if there is no region yet, show a red hint text to the user that he may
198 right click on the region chooser area to add a region
199 * added tooltips to main menu entries (was buggy before)
200 * added tooltips to instruments tree view and samples tree view
201 * added various tooltips and adjusted some labels on the region settings
202 pane
203 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: only a small set of possible MIDI controllers
204 was selectable for EG1 controller, EG2 controller and attenuation
205 controller (and no CC number was shown in the combo box). Obviously the
206 additional MIDI controllers can only be used with LinuxSampler, they would
207 not work with Gigasampler/GigaStudio. A warning message will be shown
208 though whenever somebody tries to use one of those extension controllers.
209 * Combine instruments: a new feature that allows to merge a selection of
210 instruments to one new single instrument. It uses the 'layer' dimension
211 to stack up the instruments. This feature is available from the main menu
212 under 'Tools' -> 'Combine Instruments'.
213 * Dimension zone amount: Support for increasing and decreasing the amount of
214 dimension zones by right clicking on the respective zone and either
215 selecting "delete" or "split" in the popup menu.
216 * Combine instruments: generalized this tool to allow combining instruments
217 based on any dimension, not only the 'layer' dimension.
218 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: show dialog window with at least 460x300px on
219 initial usage (was far too small by default).
220 * File Property Dialog: allow viewing and altering the Giga file format
221 version (by combo box).
222 * 'Dimension Manager' dialog: added support for viewing and editing
223 dimensions of all regions simultaniously.
224 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing and editing
225 real-time instrument scripts. Instrument scripts are a LinuxSampler
226 extension of the original Giga format and will not load with the
227 GigaStudio software.
228 * GIG SOUND FORMAT EXTENSION: Added support for managing script slots for
229 instruments. Script slots define which scripts shall be executed for an
230 instrument by the sampler and in which order.
231 * Samples tree view on main window: display the amount of references for
232 each sample and show the respective sample in gray color in case it is not
233 referenced at all.
234 * Samples tree view: implemented sample reference browser, which shows a
235 tree with all instruments and their respective regions which reference the
236 selected sample once ore more.
237 * Restructured main menu: duplicated all popup menus to the main menu,
238 automatically switch to the right tree view tab when either selecting the
239 "Sample", "Instrument" or "Script" main menu entry.
240 * Dimension Region Selector: implemented multi zone selection by press and
241 hold CTRL key.
242 * Dimension Region Selector: show bottom and upper limit values for all
243 dimension zones, not just the currently selected ones.
244 * Dimension Region Selector: Fixed drawing issues when zone sizes were
245 altered by mouse drag and labels being displayed at wrong positions.
246 * Region Chooser: Double click opens dimension manager dialog.
247 * Dimension Manager: Clicking on dimension type cell of an existing dimension
248 opens a popup to alter the dimension type.
249 * Script Tree: Double click opens script editor.
250 * Fixed potential crash if exception was thrown while opening a gig file.
251 * Added support for visual progress bar while saving a gig file.
252 * Automatically switch the sampler's (audible) instrument whenever another
253 instrument was selected in gigedit (this default behavior can be switched
254 off in the settings menu of gigedit).
255 * Dimension Region Editor: Show coarse sample format info (audio channels,
256 bit depth, sample rate) and unique sample ID (since the gig format allows
257 different samples to have the same name).
258 * Dimension Region Editor: Added button "Select Sample" on the sample tab,
259 which allows to conveniently select the dimension region's sample on the
260 left hand side's samples tree view.
261 * Sample Referenve View Dialog: Clicking on a reference in the list closes
262 the dialog and jumps directly to the respective instrument, region and
263 dimension region the respective sample reference is located at.
264 * Fixed instruments, samples and scripts to appear twice after save.
265 * Implemented reordering of instruments by drag & drop.
266 * Implemented replacing of existing samples.
267 * Added "X" button next to sample reference field, which allows to remove
268 the current sample reference, allowing to create a "silent case" where
269 no sample shall be played.
270 * Fixed file name disappearing from title bar on certain actions.
271 * Added new menu item "View"->"Refresh All".
272 * Added new menu item "Samples"->"Remove Unused Samples".
273 * Region Chooser: when moving a region around automatically move the
274 keyboard position dependent pitch accordingly (can be turned off with
275 "Settings"->"Move root key with region moved").
276 * Added option to main menu for performing "Save" operation with a
277 tempoary file (may perform faster than directly modifying existing
278 .gig file).
280 Version 0.2.0 (2009-07-31)
282 * fixed file properties dialog - properties now can be edited
283 * gig files where regions are not internally ordered are now handled
284 * the resize mouse pointer is not shown anymore for regions that
285 can't be resized
286 * the region and dimregion chooser widgets are now resizable
287 * bugfix: sometimes you could not delete more than one dimension
288 * filter headers are now also greyed out when the filter is inactive
289 * autoconf fix: LS plugin dirs with digits in their prefix
290 (e.g. "/usr/lib64/foo") are now resolved in relative dirs as well
291 (show a warning when resolving the relative path failed)
292 * keys on the virtual keyboard now highlight on note on events on
293 sampler side
294 * virtual keyboard can now trigger notes for the sampler (only in
295 live-mode of course)

297 (selectable by combobox below the keyboard)
298 * show absolute velocity value of note-on & note-off events below
299 the virtual MIDI keyboard
300 * renamed misleading names regarding the gig format's "keyswitching"
301 feature (the dimension is now displayed as "keyswitching" instead of
302 "keyboard" in the dimregchooser widget and the two parameters for
303 defining the actual keyswitching area on the keyboard in the instruments
304 properties dialog are now called "Keyswitching range low/high" instead of
305 "Dimension key range low/high")
306 * added "replace all samples" function to samples popup menu
307 (patch by Anders Dahnielson, a bit extended, fixes #73)
308 * bugfix: dimension manager window didn't update when another region
309 was selected (#78)
310 * in "Save As..." dialog set inital filename to "copy_of_<filename>" and
