290 6.
291
292 - Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling into
293 regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
294
295 - Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for other
296 than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has been added,
297 making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines instrument files
298 (*.sfz; *.sf2).
299
300 - General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.

317 possibly fixing bug #136.
318
319 - LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap just
320 makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
321
322 - MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
323 a menu separator has been added.
324
325 - Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices
326 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
327
328 - MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status
329 widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a
330 lame green solid background :).

332 - Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to
333 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
334
335 - Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).

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

485 qsampler.spec (RPM).
486
487 - Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
488
489 - Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
490 installation paths have been added to configure command arguments
491 (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
492
493 - Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an option
494 (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole number of selectable
495 instrument items is now being graciously increased from just the
496 bare 8 (eight) right up through 100 (one hundred), on the sampler
497 channel setup dialog.
498
499 - The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio and
500 MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog, are now
501 expected to be a little better looking than it was before, at least
502 for those Mac OS X eyes.
503
504 - Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
505
506 - Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits the
507 sampler channel dialog, at last!
508
509 - All widget captions changed to include proper application title
510 name prefix.
511
512 - Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date; sample
513 SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and generated at
514 configure time.
515
516 - Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of registering
517 the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal to quit() slot, just to
518 let the -geometry command line argument have some effect on X11.
519
520 - Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
521
522 - Fixed compilation error which occured when Qt was compiled with

528 - Fixed output disability when messages limit option is turned off
529 (thanks to Wolfgang Woehl for spotting this one, while on qjackctl).
530
531 - Added CHANNEL_INFO event feedback notification handling; minor
532 stream/voice usage auto-refresh cycle optimization.
533
534
535 0.1.1 2005-06-12 The mantra of bugfixes.
536
537 - New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks to
538 Christian Schoenebeck design.
539
540 - Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found in an error
541 state, which was preventing correct channel info updates.
542
543 - Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added buddy text
544 label to device port/channel combobox on the device dialog.
545
546 - Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
547
548 - Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and Mac OS X
549 specialties. Also, install does the right thing with target file
550 modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim Mayat, for pointing these
551 out).
552
553
554 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
555
556 - Device configuration is now complete.
557
558 - [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention consistency,
559 regarding the enumeration of available sampler engines, Audio and
560 MIDI drivers.
561
562 - [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new instrument file
563 is select on the channel setup dialog.
564
565 - Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading an
566 instrument.
567
568 - Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
569
570
571 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
572
573 - Fixed device driver type channel information gathering, which was
574 severely flawed, dropping all channel session configurations to the
575 default audio driver type (which is ALSA) unexpectedly.
576
577 - Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a session LSCP
578 script, assuming that it should be always loaded from scratch (i.e.
579 zero channels).
580
581 - Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on session file
582 save, as its use is still troublesome.
583
584 - Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
585
586 - Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for only those
587 settings that are actually changed gets applied; change information
588 are now also posted to messages window.
589
590 - Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or instrument
591 files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files drop is allowed, but
592 it only makes sense for instrument files, each one prompting to
593 create a new sampler channel.
594
595 - Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also featured,
596 allowing the in-place change of the channel sampler instrument file.
597
598 - Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved from the
599 instrument file, even though libgig is available, avoiding
600 excessively annoying load times while on the channel dialog, when
601 huge instrument files are selected.
602
603 - Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where available,
604 as the default handler is usually fatal when a JACK client is
605 zombified abruptly.
606
607 - Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line count
608 exceeds in one third the user configured line count maximum; if Qt
609 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is otherwise set to the
610 optimized Qt::LogText format.
611
612
613 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
614

616 instrument names are now properly retrieved from the instrument
617 file, provided if libgig is available.
618
619 - Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if, the
620 respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted, following
621 common user-interface guidelines.
622
623 - Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal control
624 structures.
625
626 - Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
627
628 - MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing the
629 explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler channel
630 (omni mode).

633 black (was green), being now an user option.

652
653 - The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking over
654 the empty workspace area.
655
656 - Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(), so
657 let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and avoiding a
658 probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the correct salvage
659 of settings and configuration.
660
661 - Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
662 provided to override the default (which is 100%).

668 each sampler channel strip.
669
670 - Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
671 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
672
673 - Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between a
674 #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
675
676 - An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every new
677 sampler channel strip.
678
679 - The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
680 suggested in the following lines:
681
682 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
683 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
684 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
685 LOAD ENGINE ...
686 LOAD INSTRUMENT ... SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
