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

51 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
52 --------------------------------------
53
54 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
55
56 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
57 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
58 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
59 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
60 usernames rather than only user IDs.
61 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
62 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
63 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
64 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
65 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
66 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
67 - Web page cleanup.
68 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
69 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
70 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
71 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

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

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

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

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

204 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
205 --------------------------------------
206
207 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
208 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
209 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
210 and fixes all over the place.
211
212 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
213 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
214 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
215 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
216 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
217 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
218 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
219 on shutdown.
220 - Improved manual pages.
221 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
222 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
223 recompilations on changes.
224 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
225 - Improved downloads web page.
226
227 -----------------------------------------
228 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
229 -----------------------------------------
230 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
231 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
232 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
233
234 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
235 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
236 libsamplerate.
237 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
238 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
239 in the new "releases" branch.
240 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
241 written to the "build" directory.
242 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
243 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
244
245 --------------------------------------
246 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
247 --------------------------------------
248
249 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
250 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
251 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
252 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
253 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
254 ALSA writer.
255
256 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
257 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
258 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
259 removed.
260 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
261 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
262 - Documentation improvements.
263 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
264 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
265 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
266 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
267
268 ------------------------------------------
269 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
270 ------------------------------------------
271
272 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
273 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
274
275 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
276 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
277 removed in the next version.
278 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
279 command in the bottom window.
280 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
281 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
282 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
283 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
284 para_afh.
285 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
286 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
287 being built.
288 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
289
290 -------------------------------------
291 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
292 -------------------------------------
293
294 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
295 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
296
297 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
298 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
299 (corrupt) mp3 files.
300 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
301 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
302 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
303 full tab completion and command line history.
304 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
305 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
306 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
307 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
308 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
309 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
310 delays on slow media.
311 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
312 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
313 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
314 use the DMIX plugin.
315 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
316 - Makefile cleanups.
317 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
318 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
319 given pattern(s).
320
321 --------------------------------------
322 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
323 --------------------------------------
324
325 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
326 are the highlights of this release.
327
328 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
329 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
330 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
331 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
332 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
333 and vice versa.
334 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
335 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
336 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
337 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
338 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
339 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
340 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
341 gengetopt to build the tarball.
342 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
343 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
344 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
345 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
346 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
347 - vss timeout cleanups.
348 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
349
350 --------------------------------------
351 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
352 --------------------------------------
353
354 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
355 enhancements.
356
357 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
358 platforms through the libao audio library.
359 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
360 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
361 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
362 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
363 runs a parallel make if possible.
364 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
365 - Documentation updates.
366
367 ------------------------------------------
368 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
369 ------------------------------------------
370
371 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
372 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
373
374 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
375 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
376 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
377 FEC group size.
378 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
379 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
380 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
381 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
382 to installing the package.
383 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
384 - Scheduler improvements
385 - Proper exit codes for para_write
386 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
387 other improvements and fixes.
388 - aacdec error message cleanups
389 - simplified color error handling
390
391 --------------------------------------------
392 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
393 --------------------------------------------
394
395 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
396
397 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
398 handler code.
399 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
400 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
401 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
402 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
403 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
404 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
405 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
406
407 ------------------------------------------
408 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
409 ------------------------------------------
410
411 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
412 bug fixes.
413
414 - Support for the speex codec.
415 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
416 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
417 considerably.
418 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
419 para_filter/para_audiod.
420 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
421
422 ----------------------------------------
423 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
424 ----------------------------------------
425
426 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
427 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
428
429 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
430 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
431 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
432 parameters for the DCCP transport.
433 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
434 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
435 and INSTALL documents.
436 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
437 - The new nonblock API.
438 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
439 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
440
441 ------------------------------------------
442 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
443 ------------------------------------------
444
445 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
446 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
447 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
448 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
449
450 - The new buffer tree API.
451 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
452 - UDP robustness fixes.
453 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
454 for the new buffer tree API.
455 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
456 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
457 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
458 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
459 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
460
461 ---------------------------------------
462 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
463 ---------------------------------------
464
465 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
466 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
467 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
468
469 - wma support.
470 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
471 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
472 - build system improvements.
473 - source code documentation updates.
474
475 -------------------------------------
476 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
477 -------------------------------------
478
479 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
480 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
481
482 - Always check return value of malloc().
483 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
484 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
485 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
486 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
487 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
488 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
489 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
490 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
491 - FEC: Timing improvements.
492
493 ----------------------------------------------
494 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
495 ----------------------------------------------
496
497 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
498 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
499 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
500 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
501 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
502
503 - stronger crypto for client authentication
504 - the database code has been moved to a library
505 - improved status item handling
506 - cleanup of the build system
507 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
508 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
509 - mandatory rc4 encryption
510 - major audio format handler cleanups
511 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
512 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
513 album_matches, year_maches, year.
514
515 --------------------------------------------
516 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
517 --------------------------------------------
518
519 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
520 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
521 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
522 series if no serious problems show up.
523
524 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
525 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
526 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
527 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
528 with "add -f".
529 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
530 - the new prebuffer filter
531 - improved signal handling
532 - variable fec output buffer size
533 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
534 - --log_color actually works
535 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
536 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
537 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
538 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
539
540 -----------------------------------------
541 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
542 -----------------------------------------
543
544 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
545 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
546 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
547
548 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
549 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
550 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
551 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
552 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
553 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
554 "--loglevel info".
555 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
556 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
557 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
558 - new audiod option: --config-file.
559 - gengetopt cleanups.
560 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
561 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
562 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
563 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
564 modes of operation.
565 - More source code documentation.
566 - vss timing fixes.
567
568 --------------------------------------------
569 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
570 --------------------------------------------
571
572 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
573 amplification filter.
574
575 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
576 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
577 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
578 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
579 - aac meta info support.
580 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
581 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
582 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
583 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
584 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
585 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
586 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
587
588 -----------------------------------------
589 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
590 -----------------------------------------
591
592 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
593
594 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
595 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
596 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
597 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
598 of output.
599 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
600 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
601
602 ---------------------------------------
603 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
604 ---------------------------------------
605
606 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
607 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
608 a good sign.
609
610 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
611 dccp sender.
612 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
613 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
614 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
615 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
616 Gerrit Renker).
617 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
618 - Audiod performance improvements.
619 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
620 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
621 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
622
623 -------------------------------------
624 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
625 -------------------------------------
626
627 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
628
629
630 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
631 for a major release like this.
632
633 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
634 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
635 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
636 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
637
638 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
639 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
640 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
641
642 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
643 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
644 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
645 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
646 - Lyrics support.
647 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
648 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
649 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
650 Solaris (sparc64).
651 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
652 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
653 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
654 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
655 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
656 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
657 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
658 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
659 para_gui is still there.
660 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
661 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
662 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
663 - Improved error subsystem.
664 - The earth-shaking new logo.
665
666 -----------------------------------------
667 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
668 -----------------------------------------
669
670 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
671 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
672
673 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
674 - universal chunk queueing.
675 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
676 to Gerrit Renker).
677 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
678 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
679 codes.
680 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
681 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
682 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
683 compiler characteristics.
684 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
685 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
686
687 --------------------------------------
688 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
689 --------------------------------------
690
691 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
692 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
693 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
694 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
695
696 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
697 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
698 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
699 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
700 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
701 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
702 and AFS_WRITE.
703 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
704 to start only after a few seconds.
705 - fix osx_writer hangs
706 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
707 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
708
709 -----------------------------------------
710 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
711 -----------------------------------------
712
713 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
714
715 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
716 startup rather than for each connection
717 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
718 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
719 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
720 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
721 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
722 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
723 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
724 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
725 correctly
726 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
727 - documentation improvements
728 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
729 - new man pages
730
731 -------------------------------------------
732 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
733 -------------------------------------------
734
735 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
736 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
737 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
738
739 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
740 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
741 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
742 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
743 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
744 - some robustness fixes
745 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
746 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
747 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
748
749 ---------------------------------------
750 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
751 ---------------------------------------
752
753 A bunch of new features and core changes.
754
755 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
756 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
757 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
758 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
759 para_recv and para_filter.
760 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
761 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
762 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
763 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
764 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
765 - update to libortp-0.10.1
766 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
767 - update to autoconf-2.60
768
769 ------------------------------------------
770 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
771 ------------------------------------------
772
773 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
774 features:
775
776 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
777 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
778 for this.
779 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
780 - para_play renamed to para_write
781 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
782 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
783 - compress filter speed improvements
784 - update to libortp-0.9.1
785 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
786 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
787 code for the interactive mode was removed).
788 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
789 work, but it gets no more testing.
790 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
791 reduces its size quite a bit.
792 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
793 and --enable-mysql-libs
794
795 ------------------------------------
796 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
797 ------------------------------------
798
799 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
800 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
801 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
802 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
803
804 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
805 selector)
806 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
807 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
808 more info (and some examples).
809 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
810 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
811 - the new ipc subsystem
812 - new audio file selector: playlist
813 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
814 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
815 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
816 change the selector at runtime.
817 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
818 - para_play fixes
819
820 --------------------------------------
821 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
822 --------------------------------------
823
824 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
825 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
826 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
827 to the new source documentation.
828
829 - autoconf cleanup
830 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
831 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
832 - gui improvements:
833 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
834 - scrollable output window
835 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
836 - fix color of command output.
837 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
838 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
839 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
840
841 -------------------------------------------
842 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
843 -------------------------------------------
844
845 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
846 a lot of small improvements.
847
848 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
849 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
850 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
851 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
852 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
853 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
854 of the ortp receiver.
855 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
856 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
857 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
858 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
859 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
860 and reduces code size.
861
862 -----------------------------------------
863 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
864 -----------------------------------------
865
866 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
867
868 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
869 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
870 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
871 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
872 read/write operations are used).
873 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
874 certain circumstances.
875
876 -------------------------------------------
877 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
878 -------------------------------------------
879
880 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
881
882 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
883 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
884 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
885 too early on a loaded network.
886 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
887 future time by the --start_time option.
888 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
889 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
890 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
891 only the http receiver in this case.
892 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
893 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
894 - improved ortp timings.
895 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
896 gcc < 3.0.
897
898 -------------------------------------------
899 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
900 -------------------------------------------
901
902 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
903 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
904
905 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
906 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
907 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
908 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
909 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
910 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
911 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
912 rather than calling find(1). The server option
913 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
914 - documentation update
915 - man pages
916 - header file cleanup
917 - para_client code cleanup
918 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
919
920 ------------------------------------------
921 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
922 ------------------------------------------
923
924 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
925 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
926 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
927 is no longer needed).
928
929 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
930 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
931 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
932 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
933 in parallel.
934
935 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
936 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
937 sender" for more information.
938 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
939 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
940 http receiver.
941 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
942 senders.
943 - ogg timing improvements
944 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
945 - empty stream definitions work again
946 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
947 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
948
949 ---------------------------------------
950 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
951 ---------------------------------------
952
953 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
954
955 - audiod:
956 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
957 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
958 for more information.
959 - fix memory leak
960 - code cleanup
961 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
962 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
963 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
964 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
965 non-standard places
966 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
967 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
968 new command line option: --announce_time
969
970 -----------------------------------------
971 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
972 -----------------------------------------
973
974 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
975
976 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
977 (including none) filters for each supported audio
978 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
979 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
980 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
981 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
982 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
983 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
984 from stdin.
985 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
986 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
987 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
988 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
989 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
990 clients that play the same stream.
991
992 ------------------------------------------
993 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
994 ------------------------------------------
995
996 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
997 for the mysql database tool.
998
999 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
1000 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
1001 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
1002 resulting binaries)
1003 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
1004 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
1005 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
1006 again.
1007 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
1008 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
1009 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
1010 information.
1011
1012 ---------------------------------------
1013 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
1014 ---------------------------------------
1015
1016 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
1017 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
1018
1019 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
1020 - cleanup of the build system
1021 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1022 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1023 line utitlity
1024 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1025 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1026 more information.
1027 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1028 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1029 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1030 Default: "para_client pic"
1031 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1032 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1033
1034 ------------------------------------------
1035 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1036 ------------------------------------------
1037
1038 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1039 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1040 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1041
1042 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1043 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1044 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1045 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1046 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1047 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1048 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1049 libvorbisfile.
1050 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1051 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1052 - documentation updates
1053 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1054 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1055 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1056 playback time rather than streaming time
1057 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1058 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1059 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1060
1061 ----------------------------------------
1062 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1063 ----------------------------------------
1064
1065 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1066 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1067 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1068 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1069
1070 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1071 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1072 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1073 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1074 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1075 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1076 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1077 than from stdin
1078 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1079 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1080 mp3 files with invalid header information
1081 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1082 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1083 - diffstats
1084
1085 ---------------------------------------
1086 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1087 ---------------------------------------
1088
1089 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1090 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1091 stick to mp3...
1092
1093 - fix several memory leaks
1094 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1095 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1096 rename your old database.
1097 - rework ogg vorbis code
1098 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1099 disabled
1100 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1101 - simplified audio format API
1102 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1103
1104 ------------------------------------
1105 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1106 ------------------------------------
1107
1108 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1109
1110 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1111 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1112 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1113 README and FEATURES for more info.
1114 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1115 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1116 race-free.
1117 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1118 - improved help message for sl
1119 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1120 perfectly ok.
1121 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1122
1123 -----------------------------------------
1124 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1125 -----------------------------------------
1126
1127 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1128 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1129 enhancements went also in.
1130
1131 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1132 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1133 exists, rather than returning errors
1134 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1135 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1136 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1137 no server is running
1138 - si: report also server pid
1139 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1140 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1141 - fix pic_add, hist
1142 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1143 - many small fixes and cleanups
1144
1145 ---------------------------------------
1146 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1147 ---------------------------------------
1148
1149 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1150 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1151 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1152 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1153 compatible in that respect.
1154
1155 Visible changes:
1156
1157 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1158 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1159 always work.
1160 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1161 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1162 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1163 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1164 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1165 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1166 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1167 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1168
1169 -------------------------------------------
1170 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1171 -------------------------------------------
1172
1173 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1174
1175 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1176 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1177 id.
1178 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1179
1180 -----------------------------------------
1181 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1182 -----------------------------------------
1183
1184 - gkrellm plugin

1188
1189 -------------------------------------
1190 0.1.0: (2004-10-22) "rotating cortex"

1199
1200 -----------------------------------------
1201 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1202 -----------------------------------------
1203
1204 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1205 and stream large audio sets happily)
1206 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1207 streaming software
1208 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1209 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1210 file/config option for dbtool.
1211 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1212 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1213 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1214 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1215 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1216 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1217 show silly logo on startup
1218 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1219 manipulating attributes
1220 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1221 - revised and beautified documentation
1222 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1223 - autoconf
1224
1225 ---------------------------------------------
1226 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1227 ---------------------------------------------
1228
1229 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1230 core code considerably.
1231 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1232 give finer info on afs' status.
1233 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1234 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1235 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1236 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1237 continuously.
1238 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1239 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1240 - codename funnies
1241
