11    
12 capela 2725 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
13 capela 2563
14 capela 2724 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
15    
16 capela 2722 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
17 capela 2725 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
18 capela 2724
19 capela 2718 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
20    
21     * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to

23    
24 capela 2681 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
25     main toolbar orientation.
26    
27 capela 2669 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
28 capela 2725 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
29 capela 2669
30 capela 2725 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
31 capela 2660
32 capela 2642 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on

42 capela 2563
43 capela 2725 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
44 schoenebeck 2591 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
45 schoenebeck 2569
46 schoenebeck 2591
47 capela 2488 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.

51 capela 2480 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
52    
53 capela 2456 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

72 persson 2144
73     * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
74     and make.
75    
76 capela 2116 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
77     as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
78     Debian 6.
79    
80 capela 2112 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
81 capela 2488 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
82 capela 2112
83 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
84 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
85     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
86     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
87 capela 2108
88 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
89    
90 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
91     been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
92     wrong main widget hidden state.
93    
94 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
95    
96 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
97     traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
98     option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
99     targets (--enable-debug).
100    
101 capela 2064 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
102    
103 capela 2059 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
104     now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
105     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
106    
107 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
108     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
109    
110 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
111     a menu separator has been added.
112 capela 2036
113 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
114     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
115    
116     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
117     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
118     lame green solid background :).
119    
120 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
121 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
122    
123 capela 2036 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
124 capela 2028
125

130     ever may follow ;)
131    
132 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
133    
134 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
135     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
136     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
137     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
138     a sampler the next time.
139 schoenebeck 1803
140 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
141    
142 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
143    
144 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
145     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
146     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
147     (default none).
148 capela 1749
149 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
150     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
151     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
152    
153 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
154     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
155     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
156     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
157 capela 1740
158 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
159     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
160    
161 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
162     screwed.
163    
164 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
165     e.g. by other frontends.
166 schoenebeck 1702
167 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
168     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
169     (fixes segfault on device changes)
170    
171 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
172     "View" main menu.
173 schoenebeck 1698
174 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
175    
176 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
177    
178 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
179     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
180 capela 1637
181 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
182     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
183 schoenebeck 1626
184    
185 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
186 schoenebeck 1461
187 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
188     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
189     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
190     default.
191 schoenebeck 1527
192 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
193     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
194

196     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
197    
198 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
199     creating a new sampler channel.
200    
201     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
202    
203 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
204     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
205     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
206     first time).
207    
208 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
209     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
210 schoenebeck 1486
211 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
212    
213 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
214     under win32.
215 schoenebeck 1493
216 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
217 schoenebeck 1461
218    
219 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
220 capela 1234
221 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
222     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
223 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
224     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
225 capela 1394
226 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
227     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
228     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
229     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
230    
231 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
232     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
233     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
234    
235 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
236    
237    
238 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
239 schoenebeck 736
240 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
241     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
242     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
243    
244 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
245    
246 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
247     the session state, only at code-level.
248 capela 1036
249 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
250 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
251 capela 1016
252 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
253     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
254     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
255     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
256     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
257     corrected some tooltip text strings.
258 capela 971
259 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
260     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
261     window managers.
262    
263 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
264 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
265     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
266     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
267 capela 957
268 capela 969 * GPL address update.
269 capela 920
270    
271 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
272    
273     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
274     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
275    
276 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
277    
278 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
279     installation paths have been added to configure command
280     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
281    
282 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
283     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
284     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
285     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
286     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
287    
288     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
289     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
290     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
291     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
292    
293 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
294    
295 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
296     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
297    
298 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
299     title name prefix.
300    
301 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
302     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
303     generated at configure time.
304    
305 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
306     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
307     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
308 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
309    
310 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
311    
312 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
313     compiled with -no-stl.
314    
315

317 capela 653
318 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
319 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
320     one, while on qjackctl).
321 capela 653
322 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
323     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
324 capela 661
325 capela 662
326 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
327 capela 586

329 capela 601 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
330 capela 619
331 capela 590 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
332 capela 605 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
333 capela 590 info updates.
334 capela 586
335 capela 622 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
336     buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
337     device dialog.
338 capela 586
339 capela 605 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
340    
341 capela 619 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
342     Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
343     with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
344 capela 615 Mayat, for pointing these out).
345 capela 590
346 capela 600
347 capela 567 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
348 schoenebeck 519
349 capela 465 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
350 capela 426
351 capela 526 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
352 capela 619 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
353 capela 526 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
354 capela 567
355 schoenebeck 1461 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
356 capela 619 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
357 capela 426
358 capela 619 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
359 schoenebeck 1461 an instrument.
360 capela 567
361 capela 619 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
362 capela 526
363    
364 capela 421 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
365 capela 327
366 capela 414 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
367     which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
368     configurations to the default audio driver type (which
369     is ALSA) unexpectedly.
370    
371 capela 409 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
372     session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
373     loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
374    
375     * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
376     session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
377    
378 capela 404 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
379    
380     * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
381     only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
382     change information are now also posted to messages window.
383    
384 capela 388 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
385     instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
386     drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
387     files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
388    
389 schoenebeck 1461 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
390     featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
391 capela 395 sampler instrument file.
392    
393 capela 341 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
394     from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
395     avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
396     channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
397    
398     * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
399 capela 340 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
400     a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
401    
402 capela 341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
403 capela 327 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
404 capela 338 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
405     otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
406 capela 327
407    
408 capela 303 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
409 capela 115
410 capela 299 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
411     actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
412     the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
413    
414 capela 295 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
415     the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
416     following common user-interface guidelines.
417    
418 capela 264 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
419     control structures.
420    
421 capela 255 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
422    
423     * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
424     the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
425 capela 295 channel (omni mode).
426 capela 255
427     * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
428 capela 267 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
429 capela 255
430     * Minor configure fixes.
431    
432    
433     0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
434    
435 capela 145 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
436    
437 capela 176 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
438     and on session file save.
439 capela 145
440 capela 176 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
441     on create time.
442 capela 161
443 capela 176 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
444    
445    
446 capela 145 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
447    
448 capela 127 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
449     over the empty workspace area.
450 capela 130
451 capela 122 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
452     so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
453     avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
454     correct salvage of settings and configuration.
455    
456 capela 119 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
457     provided to override the default (which is 100%).
458    
459     * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
