296 6.
297
298 - Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling into
299 regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
300
301 - Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for other
302 than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has been added,
303 making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines instrument files
304 (*.sfz; *.sf2).
305
306 - General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.

323 possibly fixing bug #136.
324
325 - LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap just
326 makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
327
328 - MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists;
329 a menu separator has been added.
330

332 and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
333
334 - MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status

339 disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
340

351
352 - Added support for runtime max. voices / disk streams setting
353 (accessible from the "Options..." dialog). Those fine tuning

355 automatically restored to the sampler when reconnecting to
356 a sampler the next time.
357
358 - Grayed/disabled palette color group fix for dark color themes.
359
360 - Fait-divers: desktop menu file touched to openSUSE conventions.
361
362 - Due to some trouble with newer Qt >= 4.4 applications regarding
363 font size configuration, a new global user option is now available
364 to the rescue: View/Options... /Display/Other/Base font size
365 (default none).
366
367 - Attempt to load Qt's own translation support and get rid of the
368 ever warning startup message, unless built in debug mode.
369 (transaction by Guido Scholz, while on qsynth-devel, thanks).
370
371 - Only one application instance is now allowed to be up and running,
372 with immediate but graceful termination upon startup iif an already
373 running instance is detected, which will see its main widget shown
374 up automatically (Qt/X11 platform only).
375
376 - Messages file logging makes its first long overdue appearance,
377 with user configurable settings in View/Options.../Server/Logging.
378
379 - Bugfix in sampler channel dialog, driver combo boxes' content were
380 screwed.
381
382 - Automatically add & remove channel strips as they were removed
383 e.g. by other frontends.

387 changes)
388
389 - Implemented MIDI device activity windows, selectable from the
390 "View" main menu.
391
392 - Implemented MIDI activity indicator on channel strips.
393
394 - Added FX Sends Dialog to Channel Strips.
395
396 - Color pallete fix for the instrument name display in channel

400 whether to keep the LinuxSampler running or not.
401
402
403 0.2.1 2007-12-06 Qt4 migration was complete.
404
405 - Added recent new support of libgig for retrieving instrument names
406 in avery fast way. If libgig provides this feature, then the
407 respective name retrieval setting in qsampler is enabled by default.
408
409 - The current selected/activated channel-strip is now visually
410 evident while in the application workspace (highlighting).
411
412 - Make View/Menubar and Toolbar shortcuts accessible even though the
413 main menu and toobar are not visible.
414
415 - Audio routing table is initially hidden in the dialog, when
416 creating a new sampler channel.
417
418 - README requirements and configuration notes update.
419
420 - Disable OK button in sampler channel form and MIDI instrument
421 form if no valid engine is selected (to avoid bothering newbie
422 users with confusing LSCP syntax errors when using the UI the
423 first time).
424
425 - Fixed creation of devices (don't try to set device parameters
426 which the user did not touch in the device creation dialog).
427
428 - Added Windows file path support.

434
435
436 0.1.5 2007-10-15 Five months later a fifth is heard.
437
438 - Added support for LSCP escape sequences to allow loading and
439 mapping instrument files with special characters in their filename,
440 as well as special characters for instrument names and instrument
441 map names (requires LSCP v1.2 on sampler side).
442
443 - Added new button "Edit" to the channel strips, which probably does
444 exactly what you think it does: it opens an appropriate instrument
445 editor application; the channel instrument editor tool is also
446 accessible from the main menu and toolbar.
447
448 - Application icon is now installed to ${prefix}/share/pixmaps;
449 application desktop entry file is now included in installation;

453
454
455 0.1.4 2007-05-04 Almost another year has gone by.
456

458 for solo is now the rule, but note that this color highlighting
459 is only rendered on some widget styles.
460
461 - Master sampler volume slider/spinbox combo is now featured.
462
463 - Initial support for sampler channel FX sends, while saving the
464 session state, only at code-level.
465
466 - Sampler channel setup dialog does not mandate for valid nor
467 existing instrument file name.
468
469 - Revised error verbosity in general and on session load/save;
470 hour-glass wait cursor is now displayed on session load/save;
471 keyboard shortcuts changed on MIDI instruments view context;
472 improved channel strip arrangement on session open/load;
473 instrument map entry removal confirmation (as optional);
474 corrected some tooltip text strings.
475
476 - Most top-level widgets were missing the normal-widget flag, which
477 were causing some sticky size behavior while on some window
478 managers.
479
480 - Added preliminary MIDI instrument mapping support; now with an
481 instrument list widget and editing capabilities; MIDI instrumeent
482 map program numbers are now displayed in the range 1-128, instead

484
485 - GPL address update.
486
487
488 0.1.3 2006-06-01 Its been a long year isn't it?

491 qsampler.spec (RPM).
492
493 - Added configure support for x86_64 libraries (UNTESTED).
494
495 - Optional specification of alternate liblscp and libgig
496 installation paths have been added to configure command arguments
497 (--with-liblscp, --with-libgig).
498
499 - Whenever the listing of actual instrument names is not an option
500 (e.g. due to lack of libgig support), the whole number of selectable
501 instrument items is now being graciously increased from just the
502 bare 8 (eight) right up through 100 (one hundred), on the sampler
503 channel setup dialog.
504
505 - The selection buttons, on the right of the Instrument, Audio and
506 MIDI devices combo-boxes, on the sampler channel dialog, are now
507 expected to be a little better looking than it was before, at least
508 for those Mac OS X eyes.
509
510 - Minor fixing on the initial messages dock-window height.
511
512 - Audio output channel routing configuration finally hits the
513 sampler channel dialog, at last!
514
515 - All widget captions changed to include proper application title
516 name prefix.
517
518 - Attempt to bring those aging autoconf templates to date; sample
519 SPEC file for RPM build is now being included and generated at
520 configure time.
521
522 - Set to use QApplication::setMainWidget() instead of registering
523 the traditional lastWindowClosed() signal to quit() slot, just to
524 let the -geometry command line argument have some effect on X11.
525
526 - Added MUTE/SOLO buttons to individual channel strips.
527

543 - New improved and full-featured application icon, thanks to
544 Christian Schoenebeck design.
545
546 - Fixed refresh cycle of channel strips that are found in an error
547 state, which was preventing correct channel info updates.
548
549 - Device configuration now accessible on toolbar. Added buddy text
550 label to device port/channel combobox on the device dialog.
551
552 - Include libgig version info on command line request (-v).
553
554 - Minor configure and Makefile install fixes, as Debian and Mac OS X
555 specialties. Also, install does the right thing with target file
556 modes (thanks to Matt Flax and Ebrahim Mayat, for pointing these
557 out).
558
559
560 0.1.0 2005-05-23 Device configuration breakthrough.
561
562 - Device configuration is now complete.
563
564 - [bug #9] Fixed for a LSCP command syntax convention consistency,
565 regarding the enumeration of available sampler engines, Audio and
566 MIDI drivers.
567
568 - [bug #13] Update instrument names list when a new instrument file
569 is select on the channel setup dialog.
570
571 - Show appropriate message in channel strip while loading an
572 instrument.
573
574 - Show libgig version in About box (in case libgig is used).
575
576
577 0.0.5 2005-03-04 Fifth alpha-release.
578
579 - Fixed device driver type channel information gathering, which was
580 severely flawed, dropping all channel session configurations to the
581 default audio driver type (which is ALSA) unexpectedly.
582
583 - Channels are now properly renumbered when saving to a session LSCP
584 script, assuming that it should be always loaded from scratch (i.e.
585 zero channels).
586
587 - Disabled MIDI port setting on channel dialog, and on session file
588 save, as its use is still troublesome.
589
590 - Added new menu and toolbar option: Reset All Channels.
591
592 - Channel setup changes are now properly filtered, as for only those
593 settings that are actually changed gets applied; change information
594 are now also posted to messages window.
595
596 - Drag-and-drop of either session files (LSCP scripts) or instrument
597 files (GIG) are now supported. Multiple files drop is allowed, but
598 it only makes sense for instrument files, each one prompting to
599 create a new sampler channel.
600
601 - Drag-and-drop to an existing channel strip is now also featured,
602 allowing the in-place change of the channel sampler instrument file.
603
604 - Actual instrument names are now optionally retrieved from the
605 instrument file, even though libgig is available, avoiding
606 excessively annoying load times while on the channel dialog, when
607 huge instrument files are selected.
608
609 - Set to ignore the SIGPIPE ("Broken pipe") signal, where available,
610 as the default handler is usually fatal when a JACK client is
611 zombified abruptly.
612
613 - Messages window limit is now enforced only when the line count
614 exceeds in one third the user configured line count maximum; if Qt
615 3.2.0+ is in use, the QTextView widget is otherwise set to the
616 optimized Qt::LogText format.
617
618
619 0.0.4 2004-11-19 Fourth alpha-release.
620
621 - Instrument index selection now made via combo box widget; actual
622 instrument names are now properly retrieved from the instrument
623 file, provided if libgig is available.
624
625 - Sampler channels strips are just created if, and only if, the
626 respective channel setup dialog is actually accepted, following
627 common user-interface guidelines.
628
629 - Almost complete rewrite of sampler channel strips internal control
630 structures.
631
632 - Sampler reset command action added to menu and toolbar.
633
634 - MIDI channel selection is now a dropdown list, allowing the
635 explicit selection for "All" channels input per sampler channel
636 (omni mode).
637
638 - Channel strip display glass effect has changed background color to
639 black (was green), being now an user option.
640
641 - Minor configure fixes.
642
643
644 0.0.3 2004-07-06 Third alpha-release.
645
646 - Mon-modal intrument file loading and status support.
647
648 - Effective MIDI input port setting on channel dialog, and on
649 session file save.
650
651 - Channel dialog gets sensible engine and driver defaults on create
652 time.
653
654 - Implied channel reset on successful instrument load.
655
656
657 0.0.2 2004-06-15 Pre-revolutionary release.
658
659 - The channel context menu is also accessible by right-clicking over
660 the empty workspace area.
661
662 - Added small wait event loop on qsamplerMainForm::stopServer(), so
663 let local server terminate gracefully and stabilize, and avoiding a
664 probable segfault on exit, which was preventing the correct salvage
665 of settings and configuration.
666
667 - Maximum channel volume percent setting is now a global option,
668 provided to override the default (which is 100%).
669
670 - Client/server transaction timeout option upper limit has been
671 increased from 5000 to 60000 milliseconds.
672
673 - A channel context menu is now featured, by right-clicking over
674 each sampler channel strip.
675
676 - Commented SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_PORT command from
677 qsamplerMainForm::saveSessionFile(), it has no effect.
678
679 - Insert a n #include <unistd.h> on qsamplerMessages.cpp, between a
680 #if !defined(WIN32) clause.
681
682 - An initial non zero value (0.8) is now set for volume of every new
683 sampler channel strip.
684
685 - The order to load/save and setup channel settings is now as
686 suggested in the following lines:
687
688 SET CHANNEL AUDIO_OUTPUT_TYPE ...
689 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_TYPE ...
690 SET CHANNEL MIDI_INPUT_CHANNEL ...
691 LOAD ENGINE ...
692 LOAD INSTRUMENT ... SET CHANNEL VOLUME ...
693
694
695 0.0.1 2004-06-05 Primordial alpha release.
