7 SVN trunk:
8
9 * Fixed device management dialog not responding to user changes.
10
11
12 0.5.0 2017-12-12 An Autumn'17 release.
13
14 - French (fr) translation added by Olivier Humbert
15 (qsampler_fr.ts).
16
17 - Desktop entry specification file is now finally independent
18 from build/configure template chains.
19
20 - Updated target path for freedesktop.org's AppStream metainfo
21 file (formerly AppData).
22
23
24 0.4.3 2017-04-27 Pre-LAC2017 release frenzy.
25
26 - Added French man page (by Olivier Humbert, thanks).
27
28 - Make builds reproducible byte for byte, by getting rid of
29 the configure build date and time stamps.
30
31
32 0.4.2 2016-11-14 A Fall'16 release.
33
34 * Fixed a potential crash on the singleton/unique application
35 instance setup.
36
37 * Almost complete overhaul on the configure script command
38 line options, wrt. installation directories specification,
39 eg. --prefix, --bindir, --libdir, --datadir and --mandir.
40
41
42 0.4.1 2016-09-14 End of Summer'16 release.
43
44 * Fixed a race condition on creating sampler channels that ended
45 in duplicate channel strips; also fixed channel auto-arrange.
46
47 * Dropped the --enable-qt5 from configure as found redundant
48 given that's the build default anyway (suggestion by Guido
49 Scholz, while for Qtractor, thanks).
50
51 * Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to
52 auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
53
54
55 0.4.0 2016-04-05 Spring'16 release frenzy.
56
57 * Added application keywords to freedesktop.org's AppData.
58
59 * Prevent x11extras module from use on non-X11/Unix plaforms.
60
61 * Messages standard output capture has been improved again, now
62 in both ways a non-blocking pipe may get.
63
64 * Single/unique application instance control adapted to Qt5/X11.
65
66
67 0.3.1 2015-07-19 Summer'15 release frenzy.
68
69 * Fixed configure script's Qt include directory lookup for some
70 64bit Linux flavours.
71
72 * Prefer Qt5 over Qt4 by default with configure script.
73
74 * A new top-level widget window geometry state save and restore
75 sub-routine is now in effect.
76
77 * Fixed for some strict tests for Qt4 vs. Qt5 configure builds.
78
79
80 0.3.0 2015-03-25 Pre-LAC2015 release frenzy.
81
82 * Added application description as freedesktop.org's AppData.
83
84 * Added this "Don't ask/show this again" option to some if not most
85 of the nagging warning/error message boxes.
86
87 * Mac OS X: Fixed default path of linuxsampler binary.
88
89 * When closing qsampler and showing the user the dialog whether to
90 stop the LinuxSampler backend, set the default selection to "Yes".
91
92 * Master volume slider now getting proper layout when changing its
93 main toolbar orientation.
94
95 * Messages standard output capture has been slightly improved
96 as for non-blocking i/o, whenever available.
97
98 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect the new --includedir.
99
100 * A man page has beed added (making up Matt Flax's work on
101 debian, thanks).
102
103 * Translations install directory change.
104
105 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
106
107 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
108 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
109 instruments of the same file.
110
111 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
112 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
113
114
115 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
116
117 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.
118
119 * More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
120
121 * Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for
122 session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
123
124 * Preparations for Qt5 migration.
125
126 * Added include <unistd.h> to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
127
128 * Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
129
130 * Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the
131 configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
132
133 * Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
134
135 * Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
136
137 * Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
138
139 * Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
140
141 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
142 and make.
143
144 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
145 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
146 Debian 6.
147
148 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
149 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
150
151 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
152 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
153 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
154 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
155
156 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
157
158 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
159 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to
160 wrong main widget hidden state.
161
162 * General source tree layout and build configuration change.
163
164 * Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back-
165 traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure
166 option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build
167 targets (--enable-debug).
168
169 * Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
170
171 * Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher:
172 now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit
173 (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
174
175 * LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap
176 just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
177
178 * MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
179 a menu separator has been added.
180
181 * Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
182 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
183
184 * MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
185 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
186 lame green solid background :).
187
188 * Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
189 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
190
191 * Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
192
193
194 0.2.2 2009-08-01 New release cycle.
195
196 * Russian (qsampler_ru.ts by Alexandre Prokoudine) makes it as
197 brand first translation delivered. Thanks and welcomes whom
198 ever may follow ;)
199
200 * Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
201
202 * Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
203 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
204 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
205 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
206 a sampler the next time.
207
208 * Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
209
210 * Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
211
212 * Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
213 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
214 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
215 (default none).
216
217 * Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of
218 the ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
219 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
220
221 * Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and
222 running, with immediate but graceful termination upon startup
223 iif an already running instance is detected, which will see its
224 main widget shown up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
225
226 * Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
227 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
228
229 * Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
230 screwed.
231
232 * Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
233 e.g. by other frontends.
234
235 * Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
236 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends
237 (fixes segfault on device changes)
238
239 * Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
240 "View" main menu.
241
242 * Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
243
244 * Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
245
246 * Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
247 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
248
249 * Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user
250 decide whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
251
252
253 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
254
255 * Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument
256 names in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then
257 the respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by
258 default.
259
260 * The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
261 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
262
263 * Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though
264 the main menu and toobar are not visible.
265
266 * Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
267 creating a new sampler channel.
268
269 * README requirements and configuration notes update.
270
271 * Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
272 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
273 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
274 first time).
275
276 * Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
277 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
278
279 * Added Windows file path support.
280
281 * Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
282 under win32.
283
284 * Qt4 port of the application.
285
286
287 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
288
289 * Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
290 mapping instrument files with special characters in their
291 filename, as well as special characters for instrument names
292 and instrument map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
293
294 * Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably
295 does exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate
296 instrument editor application; the channel instrument editor
297 tool is also accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
298
299 * Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
300 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
301 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
302
303 * Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
304
305
306 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
307
308 * Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and
309 cyan for solo is now the rule, but note that this color
310 highlighting is only rendered on some widget styles.
311
312 * Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
313
314 * Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving
315 the session state, only at code-level.
316
317 * Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
318 existing instrument file name.
319
320 * Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
321 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
322 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
323 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
324 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
325 corrected some tooltip text strings.
326
327 * Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag,
328 which were causing some sticky size behavior while on some
329 window managers.
330
331 * Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now
332 with an instrument list widget and editing capabilities;
333 MIDI instrumeent map program numbers are now displayed in
334 the range 1-128, instead of the internal 0-127.
335
336 * GPL address update.
337
338
339 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
340
341 * Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license,
342 on qsampler.spec (RPM).
343
344 * Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
345
346 * Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
347 installation paths have been added to configure command
348 arguments (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
349
350 * Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an
351 option (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole
352 number of selectable instrument items is now being graciously
353 increased from just the bare 8 (eight) right up through 100
354 (one hundred), on the sampler channel setup dialog.
355
356 * The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio
357 and MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog,
358 are now expected to be a little better looking than it was
359 before, at least for those Mac OS X eyes.
360
361 * Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
362
363 * Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits
364 the sampler channel dialog, at last!
365
366 * All widget captions changed to include proper application
367 title name prefix.
368
369 * Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date;
370 sample SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and
371 generated at configure time.
372
373 * Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of
374 registering the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal
375 to quit() slot, just to let the -geometry command line
376 argument have some effect on X11.
377
378 * Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
379
380 * Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was
381 compiled with -no-stl.
382
383
384 0.1.2 2005-06-23 Even minor workings needs a rest.
385
386 * Fixed output disability when messages limit option is
387 turned off (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this
388 one, while on qjackctl).
389
390 * Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling;
391 minor stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
392
393
394 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
395
396 * New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks
397 to Christian Schoenebeck design.
398
399 * Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found
400 in an error state, which was preventing correct channel
401 info updates.
402
403 * Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added
404 buddy text label to device port/channel combobox on the
405 device dialog.
406
407 * Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
408
409 * Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and
410 Mac OS X specialties. Also, install does the right thing
411 with target file modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim
412 Mayat, for pointing these out).
413
414
415 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
416
417 * Device configuration is now complete.
418
419 * [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention
420 consistency, regarding the enumeration of available
421 sampler engines, Audio and MIDI drivers.
422
423 * [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new
424 instrument file is select on the channel setup dialog.
425
426 * Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading
427 an instrument.
428
429 * Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
430
431
432 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
433
434 * Fixed device driver type channel information gathering,
435 which was severely flawed, dropping all channel session
436 configurations to the default audio driver type (which
437 is ALSA) unexpectedly.
438
439 * Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a
440 session LSCP script, assuming that it should be always
441 loaded from scratch (i.e. zero channels).
442
443 * Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on
444 session file save, as its use is still troublesome.
445
446 * Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
447
448 * Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for
449 only those settings that are actually changed gets applied;
450 change information are now also posted to messages window.
451
452 * Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or
453 instrument files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files
454 drop is allowed, but it only makes sense for instrument
455 files, each one prompting to create a new sampler channel.
456
457 * Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also
458 featured, allowing the in-place change of the channel
459 sampler instrument file.
460
461 * Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved
462 from the instrument file, even though libgig is available,
463 avoiding excessively annoying load times while on the
464 channel dialog, when huge instrument files are selected.
465
466 * Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where
467 available, as the default handler is usually fatal when
468 a JACK client is zombified abruptly.
469
470 * Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line
471 count exceeds in one third the user configured line count
472 maximum; if Qt 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is
473 otherwise set to the optimized Qt::LogText format.
474
475
476 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
477
478 * Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget;
479 actual instrument names are now properly retrieved from
480 the instrument file, provided if libgig is available.
481
482 * Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if,
483 the respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted,
484 following common user-interface guidelines.
485
486 * Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal
487 control structures.
488
489 * Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
490
491 * MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing
492 the explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler
493 channel (omni mode).
494
495 * Channel strip display glass effect has changed background
496 color to black (was green), being now an user option.
497
498 * Minor configure fixes.
499
500
501 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
502
503 * Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
504
505 * Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog,
506 and on session file save.
507
508 * Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults
509 on create time.
510
511 * Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
512
513
514 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
515
516 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
517 over the empty workspace area.
518
519 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),
520 so let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and
521 avoiding a probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the
522 correct salvage of settings and configuration.
523
524 * Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
525 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
526
527 * Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
528 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
529
530 * A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
531 each sampler channel strip.
532
533 * Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
534 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
535
536 * Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between
537 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
538
539 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
540 new sampler channel strip.
541
542 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
543 suggested in the following lines:
544
545 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
546 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
547 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
548 LOAD ENGINE ...
549 LOAD INSTRUMENT ...
550 SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
551
552
553 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
