4 ChangeLog
5
6 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
7
8 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
9
10 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
11
12 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
13 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
14
15 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
16
17 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
18
19 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
20
21 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
22 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
23
24 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
25
26 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
27
28 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
29
30 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
31
32 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
33 and make.
34
35 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
36 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
37 Debian 6.
38
39 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
40 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
41
42 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
43 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
44 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
45 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
46
47 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
48
49 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
50 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
51 wrong main widget hidden state.
52
53 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
54
55 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
56 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
57 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
58 targets (--enable-debug).
59
60 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
61
62 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
63 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
64 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
65
66 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
67 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
68
69 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
70 a menu separator has been added.
71
72 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
73 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
74
75 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
76 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
77 lame green solid background :).
78
79 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
80 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
81
82 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
83
84
85 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
86
87 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
88 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
89 ever may follow ;)
90
91 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
92
93 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
94 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
95 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
96 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
97 a sampler the next time.
98
99 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
100
101 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
102
103 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
104 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
105 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
106 (default none).
107
108 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
109 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
110 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
111
112 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
113 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
114 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
115 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
116
117 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
118 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
119
120 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
121 screwed.
122
123 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
124 e.g. by other frontends.
125
126 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
127 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
128 (fixes segfault on device changes)
129
130 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
131 "View" main menu.
132
133 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
134
135 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
136
137 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
138 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
139
140 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
141 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
142
143
144 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
145
146 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
147 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
148 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
149 default.
150
151 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
152 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
153
154 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
155 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
156
157 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
158 creating a new sampler channel.
159
160 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
161
162 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
163 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
164 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
165 first time).
166
167 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
168 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
169
170 * Added Windows file path support.
171
172 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
173 under win32.
174
175 * Qt4 port of the application.
176
177
178 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
179
180 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
181 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
182 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
183 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
184
185 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
186 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
187 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
188 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
189
190 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
191 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
192 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
193
194 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
195
196
197 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
198
199 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
200 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
201 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
202
203 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
204
205 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
206 the session state, only at code-level.
207
208 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
209 existing instrument file name.
210
211 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
212 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
213 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
214 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
215 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
216 corrected some tooltip text strings.
217
218 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
219 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
220 window managers.
221
222 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
223 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
224 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
225 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
226
227 * GPL address update.
228
229
230 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
231
232 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
233 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
234
235 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
236
237 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
238 installation paths have been added to configure command
239 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
240
241 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
242 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
243 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
244 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
245 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
246
247 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
248 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
249 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
250 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
251
252 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
253
254 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
255 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
256
257 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
258 title name prefix.
259
260 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
261 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
262 generated at configure time.
263
264 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
265 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
266 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
267 argument have some effect on X11.
268
269 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
270
271 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
272 compiled with -no-stl.
273
274
275 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
276
277 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
278 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
279 one, while on qjackctl).
280
281 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
282 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
283
284
285 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
286
287 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
288 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
289
290 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
291 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
292 info updates.
293
294 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
295 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
296 device dialog.
297
298 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
299
300 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
301 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
302 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
303 Mayat, for pointing these out).
304
305
306 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
307
308 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
309
310 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
311 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
312 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
313
314 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
315 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
316
317 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
318 an instrument.
319
320 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
321
322
323 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
324
325 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
326 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
327 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
328 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
329
330 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
331 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
332 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
333
334 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
335 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
336
337 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
338
339 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
340 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
341 change information are now also posted to messages window.
342
343 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
344 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
345 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
346 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
347
348 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
349 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
350 sampler instrument file.
351
352 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
353 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
354 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
355 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
356
357 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
358 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
359 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
360
361 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
362 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
363 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
364 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
365
366
367 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
368
369 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
370 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
371 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
372
373 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
374 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
375 following common user-interface guidelines.
376
377 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
378 control structures.
379
380 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
381
382 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
383 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
384 channel (omni mode).
385
386 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
387 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
388
389 * Minor configure fixes.
390
391
392 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
393
394 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
395
396 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
397 and on session file save.
398
399 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
400 on create time.
401
402 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
403
404
405 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
406
407 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
408 over the empty workspace area.
409
410 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
411 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
412 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
413 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
414
415 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
416 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
417
418 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
419 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
420
421 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
422 each sampler channel strip.
423
424 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
425 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
426
427 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
428 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
429
430 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
431 new sampler channel strip.
432
433 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
434 suggested in the following lines:
435
436 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
437 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
438 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
439 LOAD ENGINE ...
440 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
441 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
442
443
444 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
