278 6.
279
280 - Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling into
281 regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
282
283 - Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for other
284 than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has been added,
285 making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines instrument files
286 (*.sfz; *.sf2).
287
288 - General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.

302
303 - Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher: now
304 at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit (65536),
305 possibly fixing bug #136.
306
307 - LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap just
308 makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
309
310 - MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
311 a menu separator has been added.
312
313 - Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
314 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
315
316 - MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
317 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
318 lame green solid background :).
319
320 - Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
321 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
322
323 - Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).

330 may follow ;)
331
332 - Converted obsolete QMessageBox forms to standard buttons.
333
334 - Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
335 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning
336 settings will be saved in case the user modified them and
337 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
338 a sampler the next time.
339
340 - Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
341
342 - Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
343
344 - Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
345 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
346 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
347 (default none).
348
349 - Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of the
350 ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
351 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
352
353 - Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
354 with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
355 running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
356 up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
357
358 - Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
359 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
360
361 - Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
362 screwed.
363
364 - Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
365 e.g. by other frontends.
366
367 - Refresh device management dialog when device informations changed,
368 e.g. on changes caused by other frontends (fixes segfault on device
369 changes)
370
371 - Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
372 "View" main menu.
373
374 - Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
375
376 - Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
377
378 - Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel
379 strip, particularly notorious on Mac OS X builds.
380
381 - Added dialog when the application exits which lets the user decide
382 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
383
384
385 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
386
387 - Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names
388 in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the
389 respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
390
391 - The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
392 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
393
394 - Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though the
395 main menu and toobar are not visible.
396
397 - Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
398 creating a new sampler channel.
399
400 - README requirements and configuration notes update.
401
402 - Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
403 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
404 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
405 first time).
406
407 - Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
408 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
409
410 - Added Windows file path support.
411
412 - Fixed win32/qmakefile and win32/config.h so that it compiles
413 under win32.
414
415 - Qt4 port of the application.
416
417
418 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
419
420 - Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
421 mapping instrument files with special characters in their filename,
422 as well as special characters for instrument names and instrument
423 map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
424
425 - Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably does
426 exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate instrument
427 editor application; the channel instrument editor tool is also
428 accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
429
430 - Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
431 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;
432 spec file (RPM) is now a bit more openSUSE compliant.
433
434 - Crash fix on double-clicking on a empty instrument list.
435
436
437 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
438
439 - Channel button colors have changed: yellow for mute and cyan
440 for solo is now the rule, but note that this color highlighting
441 is only rendered on some widget styles.
442
443 - Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
444
445 - Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving the
446 session state, only at code-level.
447
448 - Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
449 existing instrument file name.
450
451 - Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
452 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
453 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
454 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
455 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
456 corrected some tooltip text strings.
457
458 - Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag, which
459 were causing some sticky size behavior while on some window
460 managers.
461
462 - Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now with an
463 instrument list widget and editing capabilities; MIDI instrumeent
464 map program numbers are now displayed in the range 1-128, instead
465 of the internal 0-127.
466
467 - GPL address update.
468
469
470 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?
471
472 - Changed deprecated copyright attribute to license, on
473 qsampler.spec (RPM).
474
475 - Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
476
477 - Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
478 installation paths have been added to configure command arguments
479 (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
480
481 - Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an option
482 (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole number of selectable
483 instrument items is now being graciously increased from just the
484 bare 8 (eight) right up through 100 (one hundred), on the sampler
485 channel setup dialog.
486
487 - The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio and
488 MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog, are now
489 expected to be a little better looking than it was before, at least
490 for those Mac OS X eyes.
491
492 - Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
493
494 - Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits the
495 sampler channel dialog, at last!
496
497 - All widget captions changed to include proper application title
498 name prefix.
499
500 - Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date; sample
501 SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and generated at
502 configure time.
503
504 - Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of registering
505 the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal to quit() slot, just to
506 let the -geometry command line argument have some effect on X11.
507
508 - Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
509
510 - Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was compiled with

515
516 - Fixed output disability when messages limit option is turned off
517 (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this one, while on qjackctl).
518
519 - Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling; minor
520 stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
521
522
523 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
524
525 - New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks to
526 Christian Schoenebeck design.
527
528 - Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found in an error
529 state, which was preventing correct channel info updates.
530
531 - Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added buddy text
532 label to device port/channel combobox on the device dialog.
533
534 - Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
535
536 - Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and Mac OS X
537 specialties. Also, install does the right thing with target file
538 modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim Mayat, for pointing these
539 out).
540
541
542 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
543
544 - Device configuration is now complete.
545
546 - [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention consistency,
547 regarding the enumeration of available sampler engines, Audio and
548 MIDI drivers.
549
550 - [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new instrument file
551 is select on the channel setup dialog.
552
553 - Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading an
554 instrument.
555
556 - Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
557
558
559 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
560
561 - Fixed device driver type channel information gathering, which was
562 severely flawed, dropping all channel session configurations to the
563 default audio driver type (which is ALSA) unexpectedly.
564
565 - Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a session LSCP
566 script, assuming that it should be always loaded from scratch (i.e.
567 zero channels).
568
569 - Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on session file
570 save, as its use is still troublesome.
571
572 - Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
573
574 - Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for only those
575 settings that are actually changed gets applied; change information
576 are now also posted to messages window.
577
578 - Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or instrument
579 files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files drop is allowed, but
580 it only makes sense for instrument files, each one prompting to
581 create a new sampler channel.
582
583 - Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also featured,
584 allowing the in-place change of the channel sampler instrument file.
585
586 - Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved from the
587 instrument file, even though libgig is available, avoiding
588 excessively annoying load times while on the channel dialog, when
589 huge instrument files are selected.
590
591 - Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where available,
592 as the default handler is usually fatal when a JACK client is
593 zombified abruptly.
594
595 - Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line count
596 exceeds in one third the user configured line count maximum; if Qt
597 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is otherwise set to the
598 optimized Qt::LogText format.
599
600
