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.

27 --------------------------------------
28
29 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
30
31 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
32 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
33 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
34 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
35 usernames rather than only user IDs.
36 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
37 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
38 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
39 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
40 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
41 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
42 - Web page cleanup.
43 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
44 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
45 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
46 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

74 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
75 ---------------------------------------------
76
77 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
78
79 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
80 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
81 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
82 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
83 for the generated man pages.
84 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
85 serious bugs have been fixed.
86 - new audiod command: version.
87 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
88 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
89 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

97 ----------------------------------------
98
99 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
100 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
101 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
102
103 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
104 clients.
105 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
106 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
107 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
108 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
109 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
110 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
111 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
112 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
113 initial volumes, better error logging.
114 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
115 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
116 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
117 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
118 - Improved user manual.
119 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

126 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
127 ------------------------------------------
128
129 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
130 of the build system.
131
132 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
133 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
134 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
135 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
136 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
137 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
138 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
139 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
140 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
141 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
142 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
143 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
144 which further improves build time.
145 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
146 and fixed.

153 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
154 ----------------------------------------
155
156 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
157
158 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
159 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
160 - Addblob commands can produce output.
161 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
162 compiled against libgcrypt.
163 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
164 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
165 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
166 path names.
167 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
168 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
169 the various programs of the paraslash package.
170 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
171 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
172 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

179 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
180 --------------------------------------
181
182 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
183 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
184 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
185 and fixes all over the place.
186
187 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
188 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
189 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
190 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
191 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
192 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
193 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
194 on shutdown.
195 - Improved manual pages.
196 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
197 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
198 recompilations on changes.
199 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
200 - Improved downloads web page.
201
202 -----------------------------------------
203 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
204 -----------------------------------------
205 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
206 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
207 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
208
209 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
210 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
211 libsamplerate.
212 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
213 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
214 in the new "releases" branch.
215 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
216 written to the "build" directory.
217 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
218 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
219
220 --------------------------------------
221 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
222 --------------------------------------
223
224 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
225 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
226 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
227 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
228 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
229 ALSA writer.
230
231 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
232 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
233 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
234 removed.
235 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
236 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
237 - Documentation improvements.
238 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
239 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
240 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
241 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
242
243 ------------------------------------------
244 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
245 ------------------------------------------
246
247 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
248 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
249
250 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
251 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
252 removed in the next version.
253 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
254 command in the bottom window.
255 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
256 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
257 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
258 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
259 para_afh.
260 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
261 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
262 being built.
263 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
264
265 -------------------------------------
266 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
267 -------------------------------------
268
269 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
270 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
271
272 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
273 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
274 (corrupt) mp3 files.
275 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
276 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
277 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
278 full tab completion and command line history.
279 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
280 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
281 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
282 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
283 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
284 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
285 delays on slow media.
286 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
287 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
288 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
289 use the DMIX plugin.
290 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
291 - Makefile cleanups.
292 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
293 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
294 given pattern(s).
295
296 --------------------------------------
297 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
298 --------------------------------------
299
300 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
301 are the highlights of this release.
302
303 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
304 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
305 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
306 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
307 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
308 and vice versa.
309 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
310 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
311 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
312 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
313 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
314 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
315 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
316 gengetopt to build the tarball.
317 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
318 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
319 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
320 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
321 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
322 - vss timeout cleanups.
323 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
324
325 --------------------------------------
326 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
327 --------------------------------------
328
329 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
330 enhancements.
331
332 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
333 platforms through the libao audio library.
334 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
335 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
336 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
337 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
338 runs a parallel make if possible.
339 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
340 - Documentation updates.
341
342 ------------------------------------------
343 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
344 ------------------------------------------
345
346 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
347 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
348
349 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
350 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
351 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
352 FEC group size.
353 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
354 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
355 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
356 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
357 to installing the package.
358 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
359 - Scheduler improvements
360 - Proper exit codes for para_write
361 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
362 other improvements and fixes.
363 - aacdec error message cleanups
364 - simplified color error handling
365
366 --------------------------------------------
367 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
368 --------------------------------------------
369
370 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
371
372 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
373 handler code.
374 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
375 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
376 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
377 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
378 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
379 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
380 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
381
382 ------------------------------------------
383 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
384 ------------------------------------------
385
386 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
387 bug fixes.
388
389 - Support for the speex codec.
390 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
391 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
392 considerably.
393 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
394 para_filter/para_audiod.
395 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
396
397 ----------------------------------------
398 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
399 ----------------------------------------
400
401 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
402 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
403
404 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
405 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
406 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
407 parameters for the DCCP transport.
408 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
409 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
410 and INSTALL documents.
411 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
412 - The new nonblock API.
413 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
414 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
415
416 ------------------------------------------
417 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
418 ------------------------------------------
419
420 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
421 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
422 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
423 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
424
425 - The new buffer tree API.
426 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
427 - UDP robustness fixes.
428 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
429 for the new buffer tree API.
430 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
431 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
432 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
433 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
434 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
435
436 ---------------------------------------
437 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
438 ---------------------------------------
439
440 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
441 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
442 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
443
444 - wma support.
445 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
446 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
447 - build system improvements.
448 - source code documentation updates.
449
450 -------------------------------------
451 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
452 -------------------------------------
453
454 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
455 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
456
457 - Always check return value of malloc().
458 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
459 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
460 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
461 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
462 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
463 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
464 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
465 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
466 - FEC: Timing improvements.
467
468 ----------------------------------------------
469 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
470 ----------------------------------------------
471
472 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
473 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
474 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
475 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
476 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
477
478 - stronger crypto for client authentication
479 - the database code has been moved to a library
480 - improved status item handling
481 - cleanup of the build system
482 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
483 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
484 - mandatory rc4 encryption
485 - major audio format handler cleanups
486 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
487 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
488 album_matches, year_maches, year.
489
490 --------------------------------------------
491 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
492 --------------------------------------------
493
494 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
495 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
496 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
497 series if no serious problems show up.
498
499 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
500 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
501 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
502 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
503 with "add -f".
504 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
505 - the new prebuffer filter
506 - improved signal handling
507 - variable fec output buffer size
508 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
509 - --log_color actually works
510 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
511 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
512 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
513 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
514
515 -----------------------------------------
516 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
517 -----------------------------------------
518
519 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
520 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
521 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
522
523 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
524 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
525 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
526 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
527 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
528 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
529 "--loglevel info".
530 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
531 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
532 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
533 - new audiod option: --config-file.
534 - gengetopt cleanups.
535 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
536 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
537 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
538 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
539 modes of operation.
540 - More source code documentation.
541 - vss timing fixes.
542
543 --------------------------------------------
544 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
545 --------------------------------------------
546
547 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
548 amplification filter.
549
550 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
551 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
552 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
553 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
554 - aac meta info support.
555 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
556 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
557 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
558 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
559 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
560 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
561 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
562
563 -----------------------------------------
564 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
565 -----------------------------------------
566
567 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
568
569 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
570 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
571 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
572 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
573 of output.
574 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
575 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
576
577 ---------------------------------------
578 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
579 ---------------------------------------
580
581 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
582 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
583 a good sign.
584
585 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
586 dccp sender.
587 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
588 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
589 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
590 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
591 Gerrit Renker).
592 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
593 - Audiod performance improvements.
594 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
595 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
596 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
597
598 -------------------------------------
599 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
600 -------------------------------------
601
602 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
603
604
605 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
606 for a major release like this.
607
608 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
609 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
610 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
611 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
612
613 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
614 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
615 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
616
617 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
618 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
619 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
620 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
621 - Lyrics support.
622 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
623 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
624 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
625 Solaris (sparc64).
626 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
627 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
628 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
629 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
630 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
631 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
632 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
633 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
634 para_gui is still there.
635 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
636 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
637 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
638 - Improved error subsystem.
639 - The earth-shaking new logo.
640
641 -----------------------------------------
642 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
643 -----------------------------------------
644
645 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
646 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
647
648 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
649 - universal chunk queueing.
650 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
651 to Gerrit Renker).
652 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
653 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
654 codes.
655 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
656 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
657 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
658 compiler characteristics.
659 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
660 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
661
662 --------------------------------------
663 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
664 --------------------------------------
665
666 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
667 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
668 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
669 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
670
671 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
672 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
673 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
674 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
675 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
676 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
677 and AFS_WRITE.
678 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
679 to start only after a few seconds.
680 - fix osx_writer hangs
681 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
682 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
683
684 -----------------------------------------
685 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
686 -----------------------------------------
687
688 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
689
690 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
691 startup rather than for each connection
692 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
693 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
694 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
695 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
696 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
697 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
698 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
699 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
700 correctly
701 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
702 - documentation improvements
703 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
704 - new man pages
705
706 -------------------------------------------
707 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
708 -------------------------------------------
709
710 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
711 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
712 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
713
714 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
715 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
716 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
717 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
718 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
719 - some robustness fixes
720 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
721 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
722 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
723
724 ---------------------------------------
725 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
726 ---------------------------------------
727
728 A bunch of new features and core changes.
729
730 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
731 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
732 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
733 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
734 para_recv and para_filter.
735 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
736 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
737 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
738 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
739 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
740 - update to libortp-0.10.1
741 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
742 - update to autoconf-2.60
743
744 ------------------------------------------
745 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
746 ------------------------------------------
747
748 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
749 features:
750
751 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
752 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
753 for this.
754 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
755 - para_play renamed to para_write
756 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
757 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
758 - compress filter speed improvements
759 - update to libortp-0.9.1
760 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
761 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
762 code for the interactive mode was removed).
763 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
764 work, but it gets no more testing.
765 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
766 reduces its size quite a bit.
767 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
768 and --enable-mysql-libs
769
770 ------------------------------------
771 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
772 ------------------------------------
773
774 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
775 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
776 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
777 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
778
779 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
780 selector)
781 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
782 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
783 more info (and some examples).
784 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
785 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
786 - the new ipc subsystem
787 - new audio file selector: playlist
788 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
789 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
790 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
791 change the selector at runtime.
792 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
793 - para_play fixes
794
795 --------------------------------------
796 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
797 --------------------------------------
798
799 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
800 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
801 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
802 to the new source documentation.
803
804 - autoconf cleanup
805 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
806 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
807 - gui improvements:
808 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
809 - scrollable output window
810 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
811 - fix color of command output.
812 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
813 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
814 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
815
816 -------------------------------------------
817 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
818 -------------------------------------------
819
820 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
821 a lot of small improvements.
822
823 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
824 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
825 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
826 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
827 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
828 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
829 of the ortp receiver.
830 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
831 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
832 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
833 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
834 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
835 and reduces code size.
836
837 -----------------------------------------
838 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
839 -----------------------------------------
840
841 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
842
843 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
844 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
845 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
846 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
847 read/write operations are used).
848 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
849 certain circumstances.
850
851 -------------------------------------------
852 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
853 -------------------------------------------
854
855 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
856
857 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
858 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
859 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
860 too early on a loaded network.
861 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
862 future time by the --start_time option.
863 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
864 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
865 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
866 only the http receiver in this case.
867 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
868 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
869 - improved ortp timings.
870 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
871 gcc < 3.0.
872
873 -------------------------------------------
874 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
875 -------------------------------------------
876
877 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
878 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
879
880 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
881 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
882 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
883 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
884 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
885 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
886 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
887 rather than calling find(1). The server option
888 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
889 - documentation update
890 - man pages
891 - header file cleanup
892 - para_client code cleanup
893 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
894
895 ------------------------------------------
896 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
897 ------------------------------------------
898
899 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
900 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
901 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
902 is no longer needed).
903
904 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
905 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
906 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
907 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
908 in parallel.
909
910 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
911 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
912 sender" for more information.
913 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
914 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
915 http receiver.
916 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
917 senders.
918 - ogg timing improvements
919 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
920 - empty stream definitions work again
921 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
922 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
923
924 ---------------------------------------
925 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
926 ---------------------------------------
927
928 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
929
930 - audiod:
931 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
932 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
933 for more information.
934 - fix memory leak
935 - code cleanup
936 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
937 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
938 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
939 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
940 non-standard places
941 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
942 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
943 new command line option: --announce_time
944
945 -----------------------------------------
946 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
947 -----------------------------------------
948
949 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
950
951 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
952 (including none) filters for each supported audio
953 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
954 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
955 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
956 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
957 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
958 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
959 from stdin.
960 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
961 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
962 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
963 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
964 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
965 clients that play the same stream.
966
967 ------------------------------------------
968 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
969 ------------------------------------------
970
971 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
972 for the mysql database tool.
973
974 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
975 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
976 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
977 resulting binaries)
978 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
979 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
980 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
981 again.
982 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
983 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
984 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
985 information.
986
987 ---------------------------------------
988 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
989 ---------------------------------------
990
991 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
992 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
993
994 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
995 - cleanup of the build system
996 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
997 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
998 line utitlity
999 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1000 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1001 more information.
1002 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1003 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1004 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1005 Default: "para_client pic"
1006 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1007 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1008
1009 ------------------------------------------
1010 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1011 ------------------------------------------
1012
1013 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1014 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1015 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1016
1017 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1018 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1019 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1020 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1021 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1022 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1023 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1024 libvorbisfile.
1025 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1026 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1027 - documentation updates
1028 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1029 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1030 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1031 playback time rather than streaming time
1032 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1033 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1034 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1035
1036 ----------------------------------------
1037 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1038 ----------------------------------------
1039
1040 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1041 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1042 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1043 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1044
1045 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1046 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1047 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1048 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1049 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1050 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1051 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1052 than from stdin
1053 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1054 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1055 mp3 files with invalid header information
1056 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1057 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1058 - diffstats
1059
1060 ---------------------------------------
1061 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1062 ---------------------------------------
1063
1064 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1065 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1066 stick to mp3...
1067
1068 - fix several memory leaks
1069 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1070 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1071 rename your old database.
1072 - rework ogg vorbis code
1073 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1074 disabled
1075 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1076 - simplified audio format API
1077 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1078
1079 ------------------------------------
1080 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1081 ------------------------------------
1082
1083 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1084
1085 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1086 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1087 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1088 README and FEATURES for more info.
1089 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1090 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1091 race-free.
1092 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1093 - improved help message for sl
1094 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1095 perfectly ok.
1096 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1097
1098 -----------------------------------------
1099 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1100 -----------------------------------------
1101
1102 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1103 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1104 enhancements went also in.
1105
1106 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1107 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1108 exists, rather than returning errors
1109 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1110 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1111 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1112 no server is running
1113 - si: report also server pid
1114 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1115 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1116 - fix pic_add, hist
1117 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1118 - many small fixes and cleanups
1119
1120 ---------------------------------------
1121 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1122 ---------------------------------------
1123
1124 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1125 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1126 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1127 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1128 compatible in that respect.
1129
1130 Visible changes:
1131
1132 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1133 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1134 always work.
1135 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1136 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1137 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1138 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1139 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1140 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1141 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1142 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1143
1144 -------------------------------------------
1145 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1146 -------------------------------------------
1147
1148 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1149
1150 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1151 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1152 id.
1153 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1154
1155 -----------------------------------------
1156 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1157 -----------------------------------------

1174
1175 -----------------------------------------
1176 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1177 -----------------------------------------
1178
1179 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1180 and stream large audio sets happily)
1181 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1182 streaming software
1183 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1184 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1185 file/config option for dbtool.
1186 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1187 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1188 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1189 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1190 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1191 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1192 show silly logo on startup
1193 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1194 manipulating attributes
1195 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

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