7 capela 2874 GIT HEAD
8    
9     - Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant

109 capela 2112
110 capela 2108 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
111 capela 2110 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
112     been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
113     instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
114 capela 2108
115 capela 2107 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
116    
117 capela 2077 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has

121 capela 2074 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
122    
123 capela 2065 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-

132     (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
133    
134 capela 2050 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
135     just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
136    
137 capela 2038 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
138     a menu separator has been added.
139 capela 2036
140 capela 2038 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
141     and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
142    
143     * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
144     widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
145     lame green solid background :).
146    
147 capela 2036 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
148 capela 2028 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
149

159 capela 1840 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
160    
161 capela 1814 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
162     (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
163     settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
164     automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
165     a sampler the next time.
166 schoenebeck 1803
167 capela 1788 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
168    
169 capela 1787 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
170    
171 capela 1815 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
172     font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
173     to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
174     (default none).
175 capela 1749
176 capela 1740 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
177     the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
178     (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
179    
180 capela 1815 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
181     running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
182     iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
183     main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
184 capela 1740
185 capela 1738 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
186     with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
187    
188 schoenebeck 1710 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
189     screwed.
190    
191 capela 1815 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
192     e.g. by other frontends.
193 schoenebeck 1702
194 schoenebeck 1699 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
195     e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
196     (fixes segfault on device changes)
197    
198 capela 1815 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
199     "View" main menu.
200 schoenebeck 1698
201 schoenebeck 1691 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
202    
203 schoenebeck 1668 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
204    
205 capela 1815 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
206     strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
207 capela 1637
208 capela 1815 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
209     decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
210 schoenebeck 1626
211    
212 capela 1570 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
213 schoenebeck 1461
214 capela 1815 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
215     names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
216     the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
217     default.
218 schoenebeck 1527
219 capela 1514 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
220     evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
221    
222 capela 1512 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
223     the main menu and toobar are not visible.
224    
225 capela 1509 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
226     creating a new sampler channel.
227    
228     * README requirements and configuration notes update.
229    
230 schoenebeck 1506 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
231     form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
232     users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
233     first time).
234    
235 capela 1499 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
236     which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
237 schoenebeck 1486
238 schoenebeck 1493 * Added Windows file path support.
239    
240 capela 1499 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
241     under win32.
242 schoenebeck 1493
243 schoenebeck 1492 * Qt4 port of the application.
244 schoenebeck 1461
245    
246 capela 1437 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
247 capela 1234
248 capela 1394 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
249     mapping instrument files with special characters in their
250 schoenebeck 1402 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
251     and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
252 capela 1394
253 capela 1372 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
254     does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
255     instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
256     tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
257    
258 capela 1255 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
259     application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
260     spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
261    
262 capela 1234 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
263    
264    
265 capela 1166 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
266 schoenebeck 736
267 capela 1036 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
268     cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
269     highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
270    
271 capela 1034 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
272    
273 capela 1024 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
274     the session state, only at code-level.
275 capela 1036
276 capela 1016 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
277 capela 1018 existing instrument file name.
278 capela 1016
279 capela 987 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
280     hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
281     keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
282     improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
283     instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
284     corrected some tooltip text strings.
285 capela 971
286 capela 968 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
287     which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
288     window managers.
289    
290 capela 961 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
291 capela 1016 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
292     MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
293     the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
294 capela 957
295 capela 969 * GPL address update.
296 capela 920
297    
298 capela 870 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
299    
300     * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
301     on qsampler.spec (RPM).
302    
303 capela 847 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
304    
305 capela 825 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
306     installation paths have been added to configure command
307     arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
308    
309 capela 824 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
310     option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
311     number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
312     increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
313     (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
314    
315     * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
316     and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
317     are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
318     before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
319    
320 capela 772 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
321    
322 capela 758 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
323     the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
324    
325 capela 757 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
326     title name prefix.
327    
328 capela 753 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
329     sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
330     generated at configure time.
331    
332 schoenebeck 1461 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
333     registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
334     to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
335 capela 752 argument have some effect on X11.
336    
337 capela 751 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
338    
339 schoenebeck 736 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
340     compiled with -no-stl.
341    
342

344 capela 653
345 schoenebeck 1461 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
346 capela 661 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
347     one, while on qjackctl).
348 capela 653
349 capela 664 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
350     minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
351 capela 661
352 capela 662
353 capela 631 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
354 capela 586

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