8 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
9 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
10 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
11 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
12
13 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
14 opus flac aac files.
15 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
16 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
17 inconsistencies.
18 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
19 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
20 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
21 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
22 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.
23 - Improved wide-character support and fixes related to signal handling.

29 --------------------------------------
30
31 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
32
33 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
34 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
35 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
36 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
37 usernames rather than only user IDs.
38 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
39 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
40 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
41 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
42 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
43 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
44 - Web page cleanup.
45 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
46 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
47 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
48 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

76 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
77 ---------------------------------------------
78
79 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
80
81 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
82 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
83 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
84 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
85 for the generated man pages.
86 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
87 serious bugs have been fixed.
88 - new audiod command: version.
89 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
90 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
91 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

99 ----------------------------------------
100
101 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
102 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
103 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
104
105 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
106 clients.
107 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
108 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
109 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
110 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
111 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
112 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
113 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
114 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
115 initial volumes, better error logging.
116 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
117 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
118 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
119 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
120 - Improved user manual.
121 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

127 ------------------------------------------
128 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
129 ------------------------------------------
130
131 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
132 of the build system.
133
134 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
135 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
136 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
137 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
138 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
139 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
140 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
141 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
142 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
143 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
144 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
145 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
146 which further improves build time.
147 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
148 and fixed.

155 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
156 ----------------------------------------
157
158 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
159
160 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
161 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
162 - Addblob commands can produce output.
163 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
164 compiled against libgcrypt.
165 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
166 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
167 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
168 path names.
169 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
170 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
171 the various programs of the paraslash package.
172 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
173 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
174 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

181 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
182 --------------------------------------
183
184 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
185 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
186 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
187 and fixes all over the place.
188
189 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
190 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
191 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
192 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
193 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
194 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
195 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
196 on shutdown.
197 - Improved manual pages.
198 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
199 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
200 recompilations on changes.
201 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
202 - Improved downloads web page.
203
204 -----------------------------------------
205 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
206 -----------------------------------------
207 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
208 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
209 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
210
211 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
212 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
213 libsamplerate.
214 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
215 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
216 in the new "releases" branch.
217 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
218 written to the "build" directory.
219 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
220 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
221
222 --------------------------------------
223 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
224 --------------------------------------
225
226 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
227 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
228 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
229 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
230 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
231 ALSA writer.
232
233 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
234 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
235 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
236 removed.
237 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
238 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
239 - Documentation improvements.
240 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
241 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
242 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
243 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
244
245 ------------------------------------------
246 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
247 ------------------------------------------
248
249 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
250 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
251
252 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
253 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
254 removed in the next version.
255 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
256 command in the bottom window.
257 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
258 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
259 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
260 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
261 para_afh.
262 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
263 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
264 being built.
265 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
266
267 -------------------------------------
268 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
269 -------------------------------------
270
271 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
272 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
273
274 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
275 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
276 (corrupt) mp3 files.
277 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
278 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
279 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
280 full tab completion and command line history.
281 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
282 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
283 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
284 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
285 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
286 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
287 delays on slow media.
288 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
289 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
290 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
291 use the DMIX plugin.
292 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
293 - Makefile cleanups.
294 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
295 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
296 given pattern(s).
297
298 --------------------------------------
299 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
300 --------------------------------------
301
302 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
303 are the highlights of this release.
304
305 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
306 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
307 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
308 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
309 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
310 and vice versa.
311 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
312 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
313 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
314 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
315 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
316 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
317 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
318 gengetopt to build the tarball.
319 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
320 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
321 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
322 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
323 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
324 - vss timeout cleanups.
325 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
326
327 --------------------------------------
328 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
329 --------------------------------------
330
331 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
332 enhancements.
333
334 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
335 platforms through the libao audio library.
336 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
337 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
338 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
339 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
340 runs a parallel make if possible.
341 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
342 - Documentation updates.
343
344 ------------------------------------------
345 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
346 ------------------------------------------
347
348 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
349 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
350
351 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
352 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
353 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
354 FEC group size.
355 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
356 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
357 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
358 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
359 to installing the package.
360 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
361 - Scheduler improvements
362 - Proper exit codes for para_write
363 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
364 other improvements and fixes.
365 - aacdec error message cleanups
366 - simplified color error handling
367
368 --------------------------------------------
369 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
370 --------------------------------------------
371
372 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
373
374 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
375 handler code.
376 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
377 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
378 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
379 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
380 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
381 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
382 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
383
384 ------------------------------------------
385 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
386 ------------------------------------------
387
388 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
389 bug fixes.
390
391 - Support for the speex codec.
392 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
393 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
394 considerably.
395 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
396 para_filter/para_audiod.
397 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
398
399 ----------------------------------------
400 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
401 ----------------------------------------
402
403 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
404 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
405
406 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
407 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
408 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
409 parameters for the DCCP transport.
410 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
411 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
412 and INSTALL documents.
413 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
414 - The new nonblock API.
415 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
416 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
417
418 ------------------------------------------
419 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
420 ------------------------------------------
421
422 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
423 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
424 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
425 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
426
427 - The new buffer tree API.
428 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
429 - UDP robustness fixes.
430 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
431 for the new buffer tree API.
432 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
433 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
434 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
435 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
436 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
437
438 ---------------------------------------
439 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
440 ---------------------------------------
441
442 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
443 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
444 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
445
446 - wma support.
447 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
448 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
449 - build system improvements.
450 - source code documentation updates.
451
452 -------------------------------------
453 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
454 -------------------------------------
455
456 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
457 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
458
459 - Always check return value of malloc().
460 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
461 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
462 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
463 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
464 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
465 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
466 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
467 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
468 - FEC: Timing improvements.
469
470 ----------------------------------------------
471 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
472 ----------------------------------------------
473
474 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
475 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
476 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
477 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
478 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
479
480 - stronger crypto for client authentication
481 - the database code has been moved to a library
482 - improved status item handling
483 - cleanup of the build system
484 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
485 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
486 - mandatory rc4 encryption
487 - major audio format handler cleanups
488 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
489 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
490 album_matches, year_maches, year.
491
492 --------------------------------------------
493 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
494 --------------------------------------------
495
496 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
497 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
498 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
499 series if no serious problems show up.
500
501 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
502 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
503 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
504 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
505 with "add -f".
506 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
507 - the new prebuffer filter
508 - improved signal handling
509 - variable fec output buffer size
510 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
511 - --log_color actually works
512 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
513 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
514 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
515 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
516
517 -----------------------------------------
518 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
519 -----------------------------------------
520
521 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
522 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
523 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
524
525 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
526 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
527 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
528 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
529 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
530 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
531 "--loglevel info".
532 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
533 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
534 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
535 - new audiod option: --config-file.
536 - gengetopt cleanups.
537 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
538 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
539 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
540 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
541 modes of operation.
542 - More source code documentation.
543 - vss timing fixes.
544
545 --------------------------------------------
546 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
547 --------------------------------------------
548
549 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
550 amplification filter.
551
552 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
553 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
554 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
555 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
556 - aac meta info support.
557 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
558 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
559 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
560 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
561 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
562 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
563 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
564
565 -----------------------------------------
566 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
567 -----------------------------------------
568
569 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
570
571 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
572 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
573 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
574 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
575 of output.
576 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
577 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
578
579 ---------------------------------------
580 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
581 ---------------------------------------
582
583 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
584 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
585 a good sign.
586
587 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
588 dccp sender.
589 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
590 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
591 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
592 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
593 Gerrit Renker).
594 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
595 - Audiod performance improvements.
596 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
597 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
598 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
599
600 -------------------------------------
601 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
602 -------------------------------------
603
604 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
605
606
607 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
608 for a major release like this.
609
610 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
611 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
612 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
613 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
614
615 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
616 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
617 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
618
619 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
620 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
621 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
622 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
623 - Lyrics support.
624 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
625 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
626 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
627 Solaris (sparc64).
628 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
629 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
630 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
631 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
632 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
633 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
634 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
635 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
636 para_gui is still there.
637 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
638 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
639 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
640 - Improved error subsystem.
641 - The earth-shaking new logo.
642
643 -----------------------------------------
644 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
645 -----------------------------------------
646
647 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
648 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
649
650 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
651 - universal chunk queueing.
652 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
653 to Gerrit Renker).
654 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
655 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
656 codes.
657 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
658 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
659 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
660 compiler characteristics.
661 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
662 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
663
664 --------------------------------------
665 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
666 --------------------------------------
667
668 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
669 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
670 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
671 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
672
673 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
674 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
675 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
676 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
677 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
678 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
679 and AFS_WRITE.
680 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
681 to start only after a few seconds.
682 - fix osx_writer hangs
683 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
684 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
685
686 -----------------------------------------
687 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
688 -----------------------------------------
689
690 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
691
692 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
693 startup rather than for each connection
694 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
695 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
696 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
697 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
698 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
699 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
700 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
701 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
702 correctly
703 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
704 - documentation improvements
705 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
706 - new man pages
707
708 -------------------------------------------
709 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
710 -------------------------------------------
711
712 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
713 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
714 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
715
716 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
717 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
718 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
719 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
720 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
721 - some robustness fixes
722 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
723 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
724 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
725
726 ---------------------------------------
727 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
728 ---------------------------------------
729
730 A bunch of new features and core changes.
731
732 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
733 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
734 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
735 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
736 para_recv and para_filter.
737 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
738 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
739 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
740 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
741 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
742 - update to libortp-0.10.1
743 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
744 - update to autoconf-2.60
745
746 ------------------------------------------
747 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
748 ------------------------------------------
749
750 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
751 features:
752
753 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
754 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
755 for this.
756 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
757 - para_play renamed to para_write
758 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
759 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
760 - compress filter speed improvements
761 - update to libortp-0.9.1
762 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
763 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
764 code for the interactive mode was removed).
765 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
766 work, but it gets no more testing.
767 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
768 reduces its size quite a bit.
769 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
770 and --enable-mysql-libs
771
772 ------------------------------------
773 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
774 ------------------------------------
775
776 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
777 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
778 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
779 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
780
781 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
782 selector)
783 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
784 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
785 more info (and some examples).
786 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
787 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
788 - the new ipc subsystem
789 - new audio file selector: playlist
790 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
791 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
792 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
793 change the selector at runtime.
794 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
795 - para_play fixes
796
797 --------------------------------------
798 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
799 --------------------------------------
800
801 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
802 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
803 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
804 to the new source documentation.
805
806 - autoconf cleanup
807 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
808 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
809 - gui improvements:
810 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
811 - scrollable output window
812 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
813 - fix color of command output.
814 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
815 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
816 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
817
818 -------------------------------------------
819 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
820 -------------------------------------------
821
822 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
823 a lot of small improvements.
824
825 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
826 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
827 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
828 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
829 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
830 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
831 of the ortp receiver.
832 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
833 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
834 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
835 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
836 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
837 and reduces code size.
838
839 -----------------------------------------
840 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
841 -----------------------------------------
842
843 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
844
845 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
846 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
847 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
848 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
849 read/write operations are used).
850 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
851 certain circumstances.
852
853 -------------------------------------------
854 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
855 -------------------------------------------
856
857 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
858
859 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
860 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
861 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
862 too early on a loaded network.
863 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
864 future time by the --start_time option.
865 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
866 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
867 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
868 only the http receiver in this case.
869 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
870 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
871 - improved ortp timings.
872 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
873 gcc < 3.0.
874
875 -------------------------------------------
876 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
877 -------------------------------------------
878
879 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
880 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
881
882 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
883 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
884 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
885 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
886 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
887 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
888 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
889 rather than calling find(1). The server option
890 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
891 - documentation update
892 - man pages
893 - header file cleanup
894 - para_client code cleanup
895 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
896
897 ------------------------------------------
898 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
899 ------------------------------------------
900
901 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
902 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
903 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
904 is no longer needed).
905
906 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
907 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
908 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
909 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
910 in parallel.
911
912 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
913 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
914 sender" for more information.
915 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
916 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
917 http receiver.
918 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
919 senders.
920 - ogg timing improvements
921 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
922 - empty stream definitions work again
923 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
924 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
925
926 ---------------------------------------
927 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
928 ---------------------------------------
929
930 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
931
932 - audiod:
933 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
934 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
935 for more information.
936 - fix memory leak
937 - code cleanup
938 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
939 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
940 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
941 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
942 non-standard places
943 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
944 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
945 new command line option: --announce_time
946
947 -----------------------------------------
948 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
949 -----------------------------------------
950
951 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
952
953 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
954 (including none) filters for each supported audio
955 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
956 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
957 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
958 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
959 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
960 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
961 from stdin.
962 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
963 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
964 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
965 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
966 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
967 clients that play the same stream.
968
969 ------------------------------------------
970 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
971 ------------------------------------------
972
973 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
974 for the mysql database tool.
975
976 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
977 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
978 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
979 resulting binaries)
980 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
981 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
982 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
983 again.
984 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
985 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
986 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
987 information.
988
989 ---------------------------------------
990 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
991 ---------------------------------------
992
993 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
994 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
995
996 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
997 - cleanup of the build system
998 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
999 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1000 line utitlity
1001 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1002 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1003 more information.
1004 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1005 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1006 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1007 Default: "para_client pic"
1008 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1009 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1010
1011 ------------------------------------------
1012 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1013 ------------------------------------------
1014
1015 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1016 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1017 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1018
1019 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1020 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1021 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1022 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1023 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1024 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1025 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1026 libvorbisfile.
1027 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1028 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1029 - documentation updates
1030 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1031 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1032 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1033 playback time rather than streaming time
1034 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1035 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1036 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1037
1038 ----------------------------------------
1039 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1040 ----------------------------------------
1041
1042 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1043 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1044 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1045 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1046
1047 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1048 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1049 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1050 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1051 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1052 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1053 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1054 than from stdin
1055 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1056 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1057 mp3 files with invalid header information
1058 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1059 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1060 - diffstats
1061
1062 ---------------------------------------
1063 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1064 ---------------------------------------
1065
1066 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1067 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1068 stick to mp3...
1069
1070 - fix several memory leaks
1071 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1072 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1073 rename your old database.
1074 - rework ogg vorbis code
1075 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1076 disabled
1077 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1078 - simplified audio format API
1079 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1080
1081 ------------------------------------
1082 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1083 ------------------------------------
1084
1085 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1086
1087 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1088 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1089 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1090 README and FEATURES for more info.
1091 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1092 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1093 race-free.
1094 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1095 - improved help message for sl
1096 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1097 perfectly ok.
1098 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1099
1100 -----------------------------------------
1101 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1102 -----------------------------------------
1103
1104 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1105 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1106 enhancements went also in.
1107
1108 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1109 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1110 exists, rather than returning errors
1111 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1112 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1113 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1114 no server is running
1115 - si: report also server pid
1116 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1117 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1118 - fix pic_add, hist
1119 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1120 - many small fixes and cleanups
1121
1122 ---------------------------------------
1123 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1124 ---------------------------------------
1125
1126 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1127 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1128 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1129 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1130 compatible in that respect.
1131
1132 Visible changes:
1133
1134 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1135 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1136 always work.
1137 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1138 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1139 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1140 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1141 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1142 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1143 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1144 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1145
1146 -------------------------------------------
1147 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1148 -------------------------------------------
1149
1150 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1151
1152 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1153 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1154 id.
1155 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1156
1157 -----------------------------------------
1158 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1159 -----------------------------------------
1160

1176
1177 -----------------------------------------
1178 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1179 -----------------------------------------
1180
1181 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1182 and stream large audio sets happily)
1183 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1184 streaming software
1185 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1186 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1187 file/config option for dbtool.
1188 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1189 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1190 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1191 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1192 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1193 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1194 show silly logo on startup
1195 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1196 manipulating attributes
1197 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1203 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1204 ---------------------------------------------
1205
1206 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1207 core code considerably.
1208 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1209 give finer info on afs' status.
1210 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1211 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1212 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1213 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1214 continuously.
1215 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1216 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1217 - codename funnies
