6 SVN TRUNK
7
8 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
9
10 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows
11
12 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
13 and make.
14
15 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
16 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
17 Debian 6.
18
19 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
20 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy. (EXPERIMENTAL)
21
22 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
23 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
24 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
25 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
26
27 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
28
29 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
30 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
31 wrong main widget hidden state.
32
33 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
34
35 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
36 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
37 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
38 targets (--enable-debug).
39
40 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
41
42 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
43 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
44 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
45
46 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
47 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
48
49 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
50 a menu separator has been added.
51
52 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
53 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
54
55 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
56 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
57 lame green solid background :).
58
59 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
60 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
61
62 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
63
64
65 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
66
67 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
68 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
69 ever may follow ;)
70
71 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
72
73 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
74 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
75 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
76 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
77 a sampler the next time.
78
79 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
80
81 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
82
83 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
84 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
85 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
86 (default none).
87
88 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
89 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
90 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
91
92 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
93 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
94 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
95 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
96
97 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
98 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
99
100 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
101 screwed.
102
103 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
104 e.g. by other frontends.
105
106 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
107 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
108 (fixes segfault on device changes)
109
110 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
111 "View" main menu.
112
113 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
114
115 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
116
117 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
118 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
119
120 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
121 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
122
123
124 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
125
126 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
127 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
128 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
129 default.
130
131 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
132 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
133
134 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
135 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
136
137 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
138 creating a new sampler channel.
139
140 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
141
142 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
143 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
144 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
145 first time).
146
147 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
148 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
149
150 * Added Windows file path support.
151
152 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
153 under win32.
154
155 * Qt4 port of the application.
156
157
158 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
159
160 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
161 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
162 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
163 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
164
165 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
166 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
167 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
168 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
169
170 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
171 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
172 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
173
174 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
175
176
177 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
178
179 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
180 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
181 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
182
183 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
184
185 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
186 the session state, only at code-level.
187
188 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
189 existing instrument file name.
190
191 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
192 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
193 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
194 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
195 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
196 corrected some tooltip text strings.
197
198 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
199 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
200 window managers.
201
202 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
203 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
204 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
205 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
206
207 * GPL address update.
208
209
210 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
211
212 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
213 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
214
215 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
216
217 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
218 installation paths have been added to configure command
219 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
220
221 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
222 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
223 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
224 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
225 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
226
227 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
228 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
229 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
230 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
231
232 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
233
234 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
235 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
236
237 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
238 title name prefix.
239
240 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
241 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
242 generated at configure time.
243
244 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
245 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
246 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
247 argument have some effect on X11.
248
249 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
250
251 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
252 compiled with -no-stl.
253
254
255 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
256
257 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
258 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
259 one, while on qjackctl).
260
261 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
262 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
263
264
265 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
266
267 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
268 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
269
270 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
271 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
272 info updates.
273
274 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
275 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
276 device dialog.
277
278 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
279
280 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
281 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
282 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
283 Mayat, for pointing these out).
284
285
286 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
287
288 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
289
290 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
291 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
292 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
293
294 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
295 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
296
297 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
298 an instrument.
299
300 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
301
302
303 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
304
305 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
306 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
307 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
308 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
309
310 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
311 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
312 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
313
314 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
315 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
316
317 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
318
319 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
320 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
321 change information are now also posted to messages window.
322
323 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
324 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
325 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
326 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
327
328 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
329 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
330 sampler instrument file.
331
332 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
333 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
334 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
335 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
336
337 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
338 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
339 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
340
341 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
342 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
343 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
344 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
345
346
347 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
348
349 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
350 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
351 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
352
353 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
354 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
355 following common user-interface guidelines.
356
357 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
358 control structures.
359
360 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
361
362 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
363 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
364 channel (omni mode).
365
366 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
367 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
368
369 * Minor configure fixes.
370
371
372 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
373
374 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
375
376 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
377 and on session file save.
378
379 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
380 on create time.
381
382 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
383
384
385 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
386
387 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
388 over the empty workspace area.
389
390 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
391 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
392 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
393 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
394
395 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
396 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
397
398 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
399 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
400
401 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
402 each sampler channel strip.
403
404 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
405 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
406
407 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
408 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
409
410 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
411 new sampler channel strip.
412
413 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
414 suggested in the following lines:
415
416 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
417 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
418 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
419 LOAD ENGINE ...
420 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
421 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
422
423
424 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
