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

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

90 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
91 ---------------------------------------------
92
93 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
94
95 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
96 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
97 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
98 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
99 for the generated man pages.
100 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
101 serious bugs have been fixed.
102 - new audiod command: version.
103 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
104 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
105 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

112 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
113 ----------------------------------------
114
115 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
116 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
117 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
118
119 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
120 clients.
121 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
122 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
123 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
124 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
125 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
126 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
127 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
128 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
129 initial volumes, better error logging.
130 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
131 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
132 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
133 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
134 - Improved user manual.
135 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

142 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
143 ------------------------------------------
144
145 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
146 of the build system.
147
148 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
149 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
150 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
151 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
152 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
153 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
154 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
155 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
156 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
157 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
158 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
159 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
160 which further improves build time.
161 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
162 and fixed.

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

195 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
196 --------------------------------------
197
198 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
199 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
200 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
201 and fixes all over the place.
202
203 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
204 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
205 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
206 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
207 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
208 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
209 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
210 on shutdown.
211 - Improved manual pages.
212 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
213 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
214 recompilations on changes.
215 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
216 - Improved downloads web page.
217
218 -----------------------------------------
219 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
220 -----------------------------------------
221 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
222 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
223 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
224
225 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
226 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
227 libsamplerate.
228 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
229 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
230 in the new "releases" branch.
231 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
232 written to the "build" directory.
233 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
234 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
235
236 --------------------------------------
237 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
238 --------------------------------------
239
240 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
241 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
242 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
243 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
244 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
245 ALSA writer.
246
247 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
248 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
249 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
250 removed.
251 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
252 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
253 - Documentation improvements.
254 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
255 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
256 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
257 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
258
259 ------------------------------------------
260 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
261 ------------------------------------------
262
263 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
264 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
265
266 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
267 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
268 removed in the next version.
269 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
270 command in the bottom window.
271 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
272 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
273 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
274 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
275 para_afh.
276 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
277 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
278 being built.
279 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
280
281 -------------------------------------
282 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
283 -------------------------------------
284
285 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
286 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
287
288 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
289 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
290 (corrupt) mp3 files.
291 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
292 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
293 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
294 full tab completion and command line history.
295 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
296 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
297 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
298 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
299 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
300 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
301 delays on slow media.
302 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
303 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
304 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
305 use the DMIX plugin.
306 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
307 - Makefile cleanups.
308 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
309 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
310 given pattern(s).
311
312 --------------------------------------
313 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
314 --------------------------------------
315
316 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
317 are the highlights of this release.
318
319 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
320 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
321 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
322 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
323 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
324 and vice versa.
325 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
326 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
327 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
328 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
329 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
330 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
331 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
332 gengetopt to build the tarball.
333 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
334 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
335 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
336 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
337 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
338 - vss timeout cleanups.
339 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
340
341 --------------------------------------
342 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
343 --------------------------------------
344
345 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
346 enhancements.
347
348 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
349 platforms through the libao audio library.
350 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
351 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
352 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
353 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
354 runs a parallel make if possible.
355 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
356 - Documentation updates.
357
358 ------------------------------------------
359 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
360 ------------------------------------------
361
362 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
363 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
364
365 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
366 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
367 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
368 FEC group size.
369 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
370 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
371 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
372 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
373 to installing the package.
374 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
375 - Scheduler improvements
376 - Proper exit codes for para_write
377 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
378 other improvements and fixes.
379 - aacdec error message cleanups
380 - simplified color error handling
381
382 --------------------------------------------
383 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
384 --------------------------------------------
385
386 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
387
388 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
389 handler code.
390 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
391 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
392 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
393 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
394 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
395 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
396 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
397
398 ------------------------------------------
399 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
400 ------------------------------------------
401
402 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
403 bug fixes.
404
405 - Support for the speex codec.
406 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
407 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
408 considerably.
409 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
410 para_filter/para_audiod.
411 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
412
413 ----------------------------------------
414 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
415 ----------------------------------------
416
417 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
418 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
419
420 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
421 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
422 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
423 parameters for the DCCP transport.
424 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
425 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
426 and INSTALL documents.
427 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
428 - The new nonblock API.
429 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
430 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
431
432 ------------------------------------------
433 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
434 ------------------------------------------
435
436 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
437 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
438 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
439 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
440
441 - The new buffer tree API.
442 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
443 - UDP robustness fixes.
444 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
445 for the new buffer tree API.
446 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
447 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
448 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
449 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
450 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
451
452 ---------------------------------------
453 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
454 ---------------------------------------
455
456 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
457 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
458 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
459
460 - wma support.
461 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
462 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
463 - build system improvements.
464 - source code documentation updates.
465
466 -------------------------------------
467 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
468 -------------------------------------
469
470 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
471 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
472
473 - Always check return value of malloc().
474 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
475 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
476 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
477 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
478 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
479 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
480 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
481 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
482 - FEC: Timing improvements.
483
484 ----------------------------------------------
485 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
486 ----------------------------------------------
487
488 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
489 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
490 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
491 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
492 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
493
494 - stronger crypto for client authentication
495 - the database code has been moved to a library
496 - improved status item handling
497 - cleanup of the build system
498 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
499 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
500 - mandatory rc4 encryption
501 - major audio format handler cleanups
502 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
503 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
504 album_matches, year_maches, year.
505
506 --------------------------------------------
507 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
508 --------------------------------------------
509
510 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
511 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
512 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
513 series if no serious problems show up.
514
515 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
516 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
517 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
518 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
519 with "add -f".
520 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
521 - the new prebuffer filter
522 - improved signal handling
523 - variable fec output buffer size
524 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
525 - --log_color actually works
526 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
527 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
528 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
529 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
530
531 -----------------------------------------
532 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
533 -----------------------------------------
534
535 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
536 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
537 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
538
539 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
540 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
541 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
542 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
543 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
544 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
545 "--loglevel info".
546 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
547 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
548 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
549 - new audiod option: --config-file.
550 - gengetopt cleanups.
551 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
552 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
553 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
554 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
555 modes of operation.
556 - More source code documentation.
557 - vss timing fixes.
558
559 --------------------------------------------
560 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
561 --------------------------------------------
562
563 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
564 amplification filter.
565
566 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
567 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
568 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
569 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
570 - aac meta info support.
571 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
572 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
573 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
574 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
575 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
576 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
577 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
578
579 -----------------------------------------
580 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
581 -----------------------------------------
582
583 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
584
585 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
586 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
587 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
588 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
589 of output.
590 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
591 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
592
593 ---------------------------------------
594 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
595 ---------------------------------------
596
597 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
598 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
599 a good sign.
600
601 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
602 dccp sender.
603 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
604 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
605 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
606 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
607 Gerrit Renker).
608 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
609 - Audiod performance improvements.
610 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
611 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
612 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
613
614 -------------------------------------
615 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
616 -------------------------------------
617
618 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
619
620
621 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
622 for a major release like this.
623
624 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
625 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
626 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
627 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
628
629 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
630 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
631 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
632
633 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
634 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
635 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
636 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
637 - Lyrics support.
638 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
639 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
640 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
641 Solaris (sparc64).
642 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
643 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
644 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
645 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
646 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
647 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
648 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
649 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
650 para_gui is still there.
651 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
652 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
653 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
654 - Improved error subsystem.
655 - The earth-shaking new logo.
656
657 -----------------------------------------
658 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
659 -----------------------------------------
660
661 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
662 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
663
664 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
665 - universal chunk queueing.
666 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
667 to Gerrit Renker).
668 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
669 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
670 codes.
671 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
672 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
673 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
674 compiler characteristics.
675 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
676 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
677
678 --------------------------------------
679 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
680 --------------------------------------
681
682 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
683 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
684 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
685 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
686
687 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
688 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
689 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
690 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
691 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
692 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
693 and AFS_WRITE.
694 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
695 to start only after a few seconds.
696 - fix osx_writer hangs
697 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
698 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
699
700 -----------------------------------------
701 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
702 -----------------------------------------
703
704 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
705
706 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
707 startup rather than for each connection
708 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
709 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
710 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
711 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
712 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
713 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
714 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
715 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
716 correctly
717 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
718 - documentation improvements
719 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
720 - new man pages
721
722 -------------------------------------------
723 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
724 -------------------------------------------
725
726 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
727 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
728 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
729
730 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
731 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
732 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
733 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
734 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
735 - some robustness fixes
736 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
737 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
738 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
739
740 ---------------------------------------
741 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
742 ---------------------------------------
743
744 A bunch of new features and core changes.
745
746 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
747 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
748 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
749 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
750 para_recv and para_filter.
751 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
752 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
753 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
754 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
755 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
756 - update to libortp-0.10.1
757 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
758 - update to autoconf-2.60
759
760 ------------------------------------------
761 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
762 ------------------------------------------
763
764 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
765 features:
766
767 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
768 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
769 for this.
770 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
771 - para_play renamed to para_write
772 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
773 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
774 - compress filter speed improvements
775 - update to libortp-0.9.1
776 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
777 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
778 code for the interactive mode was removed).
779 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
780 work, but it gets no more testing.
781 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
782 reduces its size quite a bit.
783 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
784 and --enable-mysql-libs
785
786 ------------------------------------
787 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
788 ------------------------------------
789
790 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
791 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
792 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
793 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
794
795 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
796 selector)
797 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
798 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
799 more info (and some examples).
800 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
801 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
802 - the new ipc subsystem
803 - new audio file selector: playlist
804 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
805 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
806 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
807 change the selector at runtime.
808 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
809 - para_play fixes
810
811 --------------------------------------
812 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
813 --------------------------------------
814
815 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
816 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
817 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
818 to the new source documentation.
819
820 - autoconf cleanup
821 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
822 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
823 - gui improvements:
824 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
825 - scrollable output window
826 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
827 - fix color of command output.
828 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
829 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
830 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
831
832 -------------------------------------------
833 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
834 -------------------------------------------
835
836 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
837 a lot of small improvements.
838
839 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
840 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
841 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
842 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
843 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
844 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
845 of the ortp receiver.
846 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
847 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
848 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
849 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
850 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
851 and reduces code size.
852
853 -----------------------------------------
854 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
855 -----------------------------------------
856
857 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
858
859 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
860 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
861 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
862 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
863 read/write operations are used).
864 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
865 certain circumstances.
866
867 -------------------------------------------
868 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
869 -------------------------------------------
870
871 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
872
873 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
874 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
875 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
876 too early on a loaded network.
877 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
878 future time by the --start_time option.
879 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
880 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
881 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
882 only the http receiver in this case.
883 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
884 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
885 - improved ortp timings.
886 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
887 gcc < 3.0.
888
889 -------------------------------------------
890 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
891 -------------------------------------------
892
893 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
894 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
895
896 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
897 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
898 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
899 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
900 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
901 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
902 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
903 rather than calling find(1). The server option
904 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
905 - documentation update
906 - man pages
907 - header file cleanup
908 - para_client code cleanup
909 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
910
911 ------------------------------------------
912 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
913 ------------------------------------------
914
915 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
916 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
917 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
918 is no longer needed).
919
920 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
921 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
922 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
923 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
924 in parallel.
925
926 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
927 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
928 sender" for more information.
929 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
930 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
931 http receiver.
932 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
933 senders.
934 - ogg timing improvements
935 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
936 - empty stream definitions work again
937 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
938 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
939
940 ---------------------------------------
941 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
942 ---------------------------------------
943
944 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
945
946 - audiod:
947 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
948 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
949 for more information.
950 - fix memory leak
951 - code cleanup
952 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
953 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
954 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
955 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
956 non-standard places
957 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
958 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
959 new command line option: --announce_time
960
961 -----------------------------------------
962 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
963 -----------------------------------------
964
965 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
966
967 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
968 (including none) filters for each supported audio
969 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
970 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
971 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
972 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
973 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
974 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
975 from stdin.
976 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
977 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
978 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
979 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
980 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
981 clients that play the same stream.
982
983 ------------------------------------------
984 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
985 ------------------------------------------
986
987 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
988 for the mysql database tool.
989
990 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
991 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
992 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
993 resulting binaries)
994 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
995 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
996 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
997 again.
998 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
999 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
1000 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
1001 information.
1002
1003 ---------------------------------------
1004 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
1005 ---------------------------------------
1006
1007 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
1008 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
1009
1010 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
1011 - cleanup of the build system
1012 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1013 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1014 line utitlity
1015 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1016 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1017 more information.
1018 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1019 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1020 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1021 Default: "para_client pic"
1022 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1023 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1024
1025 ------------------------------------------
1026 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1027 ------------------------------------------
1028
1029 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1030 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1031 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1032
1033 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1034 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1035 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1036 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1037 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1038 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1039 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1040 libvorbisfile.
1041 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1042 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1043 - documentation updates
1044 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1045 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1046 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1047 playback time rather than streaming time
1048 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1049 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1050 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1051
1052 ----------------------------------------
1053 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1054 ----------------------------------------
1055
1056 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1057 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1058 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1059 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1060
1061 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1062 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1063 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1064 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1065 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1066 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1067 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1068 than from stdin
1069 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1070 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1071 mp3 files with invalid header information
1072 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1073 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1074 - diffstats
1075
1076 ---------------------------------------
1077 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1078 ---------------------------------------
1079
1080 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1081 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1082 stick to mp3...
1083
1084 - fix several memory leaks
1085 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1086 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1087 rename your old database.
1088 - rework ogg vorbis code
1089 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1090 disabled
1091 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1092 - simplified audio format API
1093 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1094
1095 ------------------------------------
1096 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1097 ------------------------------------
1098
1099 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1100
1101 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1102 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1103 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1104 README and FEATURES for more info.
1105 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1106 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1107 race-free.
1108 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1109 - improved help message for sl
1110 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1111 perfectly ok.
1112 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1113
1114 -----------------------------------------
1115 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1116 -----------------------------------------
1117
1118 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1119 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1120 enhancements went also in.
1121
1122 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1123 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1124 exists, rather than returning errors
1125 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1126 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1127 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1128 no server is running
1129 - si: report also server pid
1130 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1131 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1132 - fix pic_add, hist
1133 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1134 - many small fixes and cleanups
1135
1136 ---------------------------------------
1137 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1138 ---------------------------------------
1139
1140 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1141 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1142 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1143 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1144 compatible in that respect.
1145
1146 Visible changes:
1147
1148 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1149 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1150 always work.
1151 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1152 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1153 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1154 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1155 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1156 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1157 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1158 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1159
1160 -------------------------------------------
1161 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1162 -------------------------------------------
1163
1164 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1165
1166 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1167 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1168 id.
1169 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1170
1171 -----------------------------------------
1172 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1173 -----------------------------------------
1174
1175 - gkrellm plugin

1190
1191 -----------------------------------------
1192 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1193 -----------------------------------------
1194
1195 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1196 and stream large audio sets happily)
1197 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1198 streaming software
1199 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1200 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1201 file/config option for dbtool.
1202 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1203 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1204 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1205 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1206 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1207 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1208 show silly logo on startup
1209 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1210 manipulating attributes
1211 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1212 - revised and beautified documentation
1213 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1214 - autoconf
1215
1216 ---------------------------------------------
1217 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1218 ---------------------------------------------
1219
1220 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1221 core code considerably.
1222 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1223 give finer info on afs' status.
1224 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1225 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1226 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1227 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1228 continuously.
1229 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1230 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1231 - codename funnies
1232
