61 * fixed building without linuxsampler on Mac
62 * fixed some compiler and cppcheck warnings
63 * synthesis paremeter page tabs are now scrollable (fixes an issue with
64 GTK 3: default theme uses huge tabs which breaks the overall layout on
65 average window sizes)
66 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
67 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
68 * NKSP Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP syntax
69 highlighting backend.
70 * Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on

87 it needs to automatically reload the script after the script has been
88 altered and applied with the script editor.
89 * Added setting to main menu "View" -> "Auto Restore Window Dimension"
90 (disabled by default since it causes issues on some machines).

93 * Script Editor: Fixed editor which did not appear on some systems due
94 to missing icons (using now lists of alternative icon names).
95 * Script Editor: Added "Font Size ..." selection to editor's menu.
96 * Script Editor: Fixed crash on Ctrl + A, followed by Del.

105 * windows: look for the data directory in the parent of the dll
106 directory, if the dll directory is called "32" or "64"
107 * Implemented resizing multiple dimension region zones at once, which is
108 controlled by the infamous checkbox trio "all regions",
109 "all dimension splits" and "both channels".
110 * Implemented deleting dimension region zones of all regions at once, which
111 is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
112 * Implemented splitting up dimension region zones of all regions at once,
113 which is controlled by checkbox "all regions".
114 * Show graphical symbol on region that uses loop(s).
115 * Show graphical symbol on region that misses sample reference(s).
116 * Fixed crash on saving file if a sample was requested to be replaced twice
117 by the user.
118 * Implemented fast navigation through regions by keyboard accelerator
119 Ctrl+Left and Ctrl+Right (on Mac: Cmd+Left and Cmd+Right).
120 * Implemented fast navigation through dimension region zones of currently
121 selected region by keyboard accelerator Alt+Left, Alt+Right, Alt+Up,
122 Alt+Down, as well as simply using the arrow keys alone if the dimension
123 region chooser got focus (i.e. when it was selected by mouse previously).
124 * Color tweaking on selected regions and selected dimension zones.
125 * Dimension Region Chooser: Show main selected case in opaque blue color

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

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

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

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