215
216 * Added support for SF2 instrument names/preset enumeration.
217
218 * Added instrument list popup on channel strip which shows up when
219 the instrument name is clicked. Allows faster switching among
220 instruments of the same file.
221
222 * Adjusted configure check for libgig to detect its new --libdir
223 (impolitely forcing the user now to have at least libgig 3.3.0).
224
225
226 0.2.3 2013-12-31 A fifth of a Jubilee.
227
228 * Allow the build system to include an user specified LDFLAGS.

251
252 * Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure
253 and make.
254
255 * libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase,
256 as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13,
257 Debian 6.
258
259 * Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling
260 into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
261
262 * Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for
263 other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has
264 been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines
265 instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
266
267 * General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
268
269 * Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has
270 been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to

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

627 * The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking
628 over the empty workspace area.
629
630 * Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(),

648 a #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
649
650 * An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every
651 new sampler channel strip.
652
653 * The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
