141
142 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.

147 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
148
149 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to

164
165 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
166
167 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
168 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
169 instruments of the same file.
170
171 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
172 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
173
174
175 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
176
177 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
178
179 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
180
181 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for

193 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
194
195 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
196
197 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
198
199 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
200
201 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
202 and make.
203
204 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
205 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
206 Debian 6.
207
208 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
209 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
210
211 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
212 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
213 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
214 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
215
216 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
217
218 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
219 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
220 wrong main widget hidden state.
221
222 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
223
224 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
225 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
226 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
227 targets (--enable-debug).
228
229 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
230
231 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
232 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
233 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
234
235 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
236 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
237
238 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
239 a menu separator has been added.
240
241 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
242 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
243
244 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
245 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
246 lame green solid background :).
247
248 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
249 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
250
251 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
252
253
254 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
255
256 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
257 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
258 ever may follow ;)
259
260 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
261
262 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
263 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
264 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
265 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
266 a sampler the next time.
267
268 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
269
270 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
271
272 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
273 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
274 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
275 (default none).
276
277 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
278 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
279 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
280
281 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
282 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
283 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
284 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
285
286 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
287 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
288
289 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
290 screwed.
291
292 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
293 e.g. by other frontends.
294
295 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
296 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
297 (fixes segfault on device changes)
298
299 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
300 "View" main menu.
301
302 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
303
304 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
305
306 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
307 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
308
309 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
310 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
311
312
313 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
314
315 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
316 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
317 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
318 default.
319
320 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
321 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
322
323 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
324 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
325
326 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
327 creating a new sampler channel.
328
329 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
330
331 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
332 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
333 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
334 first time).
335
336 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
337 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
338
339 * Added Windows file path support.
340
341 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
342 under win32.
343
344 * Qt4 port of the application.
345
346
347 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
348
349 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
350 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
351 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
352 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
353
354 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
355 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
356 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
357 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
358
359 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
360 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
361 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
362
363 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
364
365
366 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
367
368 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
369 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
370 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
371
372 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
373
374 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
375 the session state, only at code-level.
376
377 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
378 existing instrument file name.
379
380 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
381 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
382 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
383 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
384 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
385 corrected some tooltip text strings.
386
387 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
388 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
389 window managers.
390
391 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
392 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
393 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
394 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
395
396 * GPL address update.
397
398
399 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
400
401 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
402 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
403
404 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
405
406 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
407 installation paths have been added to configure command
408 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
409
410 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
411 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
412 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
413 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
414 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
415
416 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
417 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
418 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
419 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
420
421 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
422
423 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
424 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
425
426 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
427 title name prefix.
428
429 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
430 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
431 generated at configure time.
432
433 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
434 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
435 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
436 argument have some effect on X11.
437
438 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
439
440 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
441 compiled with -no-stl.
442
443
444 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
445
446 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
447 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
448 one, while on qjackctl).
449
450 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
451 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
452
453
454 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
455
456 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
457 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
458
459 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
460 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
461 info updates.
462
463 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
464 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
465 device dialog.
466
467 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
468
469 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
470 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
471 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
472 Mayat, for pointing these out).
473
474
475 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
476
477 * Device configuration is now complete.
478
479 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
480 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
481 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
482
483 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
484 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
485
486 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
487 an instrument.
488
489 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
490
491
492 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
493
494 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
495 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
496 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
497 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
498
499 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
500 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
501 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
502
503 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
504 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
505
506 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
507
508 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
509 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
510 change information are now also posted to messages window.
511
512 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
513 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
514 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
515 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
516
517 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
518 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
519 sampler instrument file.
520
521 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
522 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
523 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
524 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
525
526 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
527 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
528 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
529
530 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
531 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
532 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
533 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
534
535
536 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
537
538 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
539 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
540 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
541
542 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
543 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
544 following common user-interface guidelines.
545
546 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
547 control structures.
548
549 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
550
551 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
552 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
553 channel (omni mode).
554
555 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
556 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
557
558 * Minor configure fixes.
559
560
561 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
562
563 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
564
565 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
566 and on session file save.
567
568 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
569 on create time.
570
571 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
572
573
574 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
575
576 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
577 over the empty workspace area.
578
579 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
580 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
581 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
582 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
583
584 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
585 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
586
587 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
588 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
589
590 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
591 each sampler channel strip.
592
593 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
594 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
595
596 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
597 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
598
599 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
600 new sampler channel strip.
601
602 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
603 suggested in the following lines:
604
605 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
606 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
607 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
608 LOAD ENGINE ...
609 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
610 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
