4 ChangeLog
5
6
7 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
8
9 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
10 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
11
12 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
13 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
14 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
15
16 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
17 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
18
19
20 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
21
22 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
23
24 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
25
26 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
27 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
28
29 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
30
31
32 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
33
34 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
35 64bit Linux flavours.
36
37 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
38
39 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
40 sub-routine is now in effect. (EXPERIMENTAL)
41
42 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
43
44
45 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
46
47 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
48
49 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
50 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
51
52 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
53
54 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
55 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
56
57 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
58 main toolbar orientation.
59
60 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
61 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
62
63 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
64
65 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
66 debian, thanks).
67
68 * Translations install directory change.
69
70 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
71
72 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
73 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
74 instruments of the same file.
75
76 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
77 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
78
79
80 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
81
82 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
83
84 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
85
86 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
87 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
88
89 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
90
91 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
92
93 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
94
95 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
96 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
97
98 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
99
100 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
101
102 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
103
104 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
105
106 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
107 and make.
108
109 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
110 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
111 Debian 6.
112
113 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
114 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
115
116 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
117 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
118 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
119 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
120
121 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
122
123 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
124 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
125 wrong main widget hidden state.
126
127 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
128
129 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
130 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
131 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
132 targets (--enable-debug).
133
134 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
135
136 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
137 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
138 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
139
140 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
141 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
142
143 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
144 a menu separator has been added.
145
146 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
147 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
148
149 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
150 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
151 lame green solid background :).
152
153 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
154 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
155
156 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
157
158
159 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
160
161 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
162 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
163 ever may follow ;)
164
165 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
166
167 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
168 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
169 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
170 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
171 a sampler the next time.
172
173 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
174
175 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
176
177 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
178 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
179 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
180 (default none).
181
182 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
183 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
184 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
185
186 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
187 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
188 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
189 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
190
191 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
192 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
193
194 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
195 screwed.
196
197 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
198 e.g. by other frontends.
199
200 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
201 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
202 (fixes segfault on device changes)
203
204 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
205 "View" main menu.
206
207 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
208
209 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
210
211 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
212 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
213
214 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
215 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
216
217
218 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
219
220 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
221 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
222 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
223 default.
224
225 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
226 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
227
228 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
229 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
230
231 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
232 creating a new sampler channel.
233
234 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
235
236 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
237 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
238 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
239 first time).
240
241 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
242 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
243
244 * Added Windows file path support.
245
246 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
247 under win32.
248
249 * Qt4 port of the application.
250
251
252 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
253
254 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
255 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
256 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
257 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
258
259 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
260 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
261 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
262 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
263
264 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
265 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
266 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
267
268 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
269
270
271 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
272
273 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
274 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
275 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
276
277 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
278
279 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
280 the session state, only at code-level.
281
282 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
283 existing instrument file name.
284
285 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
286 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
287 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
288 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
289 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
290 corrected some tooltip text strings.
291
292 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
293 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
294 window managers.
295
296 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
297 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
298 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
299 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
300
301 * GPL address update.
302
303
304 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
305
306 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
307 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
308
309 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
310
311 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
312 installation paths have been added to configure command
313 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
314
315 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
316 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
317 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
318 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
319 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
320
321 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
322 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
323 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
324 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
325
326 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
327
328 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
329 the sampler channel dialog, at last! (EXPERIMENTAL).
330
331 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
332 title name prefix.
333
334 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
335 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
336 generated at configure time.
337
338 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
339 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
340 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
341 argument have some effect on X11.
342
343 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
344
345 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
346 compiled with -no-stl.
347
348
349 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
350
351 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
352 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
353 one, while on qjackctl).
354
355 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
356 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
357
358
359 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
360
361 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
362 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
363
364 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
365 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
366 info updates.
367
368 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
369 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
370 device dialog.
371
372 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
373
374 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
375 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
376 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
377 Mayat, for pointing these out).
378
379
380 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
381
382 * Device configuration is now complete (EXPERIMENTAL).
383
384 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
385 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
386 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
387
388 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
389 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
390
391 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
392 an instrument.
393
394 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
395
396
397 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
398
399 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
400 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
401 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
402 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
403
404 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
405 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
406 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
407
408 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
409 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
410
411 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
412
413 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
414 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
415 change information are now also posted to messages window.
416
417 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
418 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
419 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
420 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
421
422 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
423 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
424 sampler instrument file.
425
426 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
427 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
428 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
429 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
430
431 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
432 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
433 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
434
435 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
436 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
437 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
438 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
439
440
441 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
442
443 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
444 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
445 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
446
447 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
448 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
449 following common user-interface guidelines.
450
451 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
452 control structures.
453
454 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
455
456 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
457 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
458 channel (omni mode).
459
460 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
461 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
462
463 * Minor configure fixes.
464
465
466 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
467
468 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
469
470 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
471 and on session file save.
472
473 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
474 on create time.
475
476 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
477
478
479 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
480
481 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
482 over the empty workspace area.
483
484 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
485 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
486 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
487 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
488
489 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
490 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
491
492 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
493 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
494
495 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
496 each sampler channel strip.
497
498 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
499 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
500
501 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
502 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
503
504 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
505 new sampler channel strip.
506
507 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
508 suggested in the following lines:
509
510 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
511 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
512 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
513 LOAD ENGINE ...
514 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
515 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
516
517
518 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
