30 - moved source files of command line tools to new subdir src/tools
31 - libgig.so and libakai.so files are now installed under
32 $(prefix)/lib/libgig/ by default.

93 (chunks at wrong location in the RIFF tree).
94 - Added new method Instrument::MoveTo() which allows to rearrange the order
95 of instruments within the same gig file.
96

104 - Added support for custom progress notification while saving to DLS file.
105 - Bugfix: Adding a new region in between two existing regions caused the
106 new one being dropped after save operation and the gig file being tainted
107 (chunks at wrong location in the RIFF tree).
108
109 * src/SF.cpp, src/SF.h:
110 - added new method Sample::ReadNoClear()
111
112 * src/RIFF.cpp, src/RIFF.h:

125 - added 2nd, alternative method for List::MoveSubChunk(), the old 1st one
126 allows to move a subchunk within the current List, whereas the new 2nd
127 one allows to move the subchunk from the current list to another list
128 - POSIX: only assume -1 result value as error on open() calls
129 - POSIX: show operating system's error reason if opening a file failed
130 - Added support for custom progress notification while saving to RIFF file.

157 bi-directional (a.k.a. 'pingpong') loop type (fixes #102)
158
159 * src/RIFF.cpp, src/RIFF.h:
160 - bugfix: saving to the same file after the file size had been
161 increased made the file corrupt (#82)
162 - bugfix: refuse Chunk::Read() in case chunk has just been added, that
163 is not written physically yet (#82)

214 instrument constructors
215 - clear unused fields when saving samples and regions
216 - fixed write support bugs: v3 dimension limits and chunksize

231 instruments
232 - write support: improved the default values for dimension region
233 parameters
234 - more write support fixes: crossfade parameters were not saved,
235 v3 dimension limits were not correctly initialized and saved
236 when dimensions were added or deleted, v3 wave pool offsets were
237 not saved correctly
238 - write support: 24 bit samples can now be written

242 list in v3 files now always has 128 entries, several parameters
243 where incorrectly saved due to an operator precedence mistake
244 - DeleteSample now removes all references to the deleted sample
245 - AddDimension now copies all parameters from existing dimension
246 regions and also makes sure that the samplechannel dimension is
247 placed first in the list of dimensions.

249 parent Region
250 - fixed Instrument::UpdateRegionKeyTable() method which did not reset

271 - added support for custom splits points for other dimensions than
272 velocity (gig v3 feature)
273 - added "smart midi" and "round robin keyboard" dimensions
274 - added new method File::DeleteGroupOnly() which only deletes the given
275 group but moves all its members to another group, the other method,
276 that is File::DeleteGroup() now removes not just the group, but also
277 all the samples that belong to that group
278 - fixed crash which occured on interfering File::DeleteSample() and
279 File::GetNextSample() calls (due to iterator invalidation)

282 with the group
283 - added Instrument::MoveRegion method
284 - fixed constructor for Region, which did not initialize correctly
285 when used from Instrument::AddRegion
286 - when saving, override the gig::Regions sample reference simply by
287 the region's first dimension region's sample (avoids an exception
288 when trying to save a new instrument)

520 - version of shared library can be set in configure.in
521
522 Version 0.7.0 (3 May 2004)
523
524 * general changes:
525 - various big endian specific corrections
526 (successfully tested now on PPC)
527 - minor adjustments to avoid compile errors on some systems
528 (using now pow() instead of powl() and --pedantic g++ compiler switch)
529 - libtoolized the library
530 - added man pages for the command line tools
531 (gigextract, gigdump, dlsdump, rifftree)
532
533 * src/gig.cpp, src/gig.h:
534 - fixed bug in decompression algorithm which caused it not to detect
535 the end of a stream
536 - added method GetVelocityAttenuation() to class 'DimensionRegion' which
537 takes the MIDI key velocity value as an argument and returns the
538 appropriate volume factor (0.0 ... 1.0) for the sample to be played
539 back, the velocity curve transformation functions used for this are
540 only an approximation so far
541 - fixed class attributes 'Sample::LoopStart', 'Sample::LoopEnd' and
542 'Sample::LoopSize' which reflected wrong values
543 - class attributes 'Sample::LoopStart' and 'Sample::LoopEnd' are now
544 measured in sample points instead of byte offset
545 - renamed misleading attribute name 'Sample::MIDIPitchFraction' to
546 'Sample::FineTune'
547 - added class attribute 'Sample::LoopSize'
548 - added method GetInstrument(uint index) to class 'File'
549 - added ReadAndLoop() method to class 'Sample' which is an extension to
550 the normal Read() method to honor the sample's looping information
551 while streaming from disk
552 - changed interface for 'attenuation_ctrl_t', 'eg1_ctrl_t' and
553 'eg2_ctrl_t': replaced this huge enumeration by a structure which
554 reflects the MIDI controller number in case of an ordinary control
555 change controller (this saves a huge switch-case block in the
556 application of the library user)
557 - renamed following attributes in class 'DimensionRegion':
558 'AttenuationContol' -> 'AttenuationController',
559 'InvertAttenuationControl' -> 'InvertAttenuationController',
560 'AttenuationControlTreshold' -> 'AttenuationControllerThreshold'
561 - minor fix in API documentation for method GetVelocityAttenuation() in
562 class 'DimensionRegion'
563
564 * src/RIFF.cpp, src/RIFF.h:
565 - added additional API documentation
566 - minor fix in Chunk::Read() method (only a minor efficiency issue)
567
568 * src/gigdump.cpp:
569 - added printout of samples' looping informations
570
571 Version 0.6.0 (3 Nov 2003)
572
573 * initial release
