26 ---------------------------------------
27
28 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
29 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
30 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
31 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
32
33 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
34 opus flac aac files.
35 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
36 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
37 inconsistencies.

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

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

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

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

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

206 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
207 --------------------------------------
208
209 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
210 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
211 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
212 and fixes all over the place.
213
214 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
215 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
216 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
217 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
218 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
219 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
220 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
221 on shutdown.
222 - Improved manual pages.
223 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
224 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
225 recompilations on changes.
226 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
227 - Improved downloads web page.
228
229 -----------------------------------------
230 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
231 -----------------------------------------
232 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
233 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
234 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
235
236 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
237 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
238 libsamplerate.
239 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
240 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
241 in the new "releases" branch.
242 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
243 written to the "build" directory.
244 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
245 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
246
247 --------------------------------------
248 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
249 --------------------------------------
250
251 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
252 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
253 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
254 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
255 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
256 ALSA writer.
257
258 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
259 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
260 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
261 removed.
262 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
263 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
264 - Documentation improvements.
265 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
266 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
267 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
268 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
269
270 ------------------------------------------
271 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
272 ------------------------------------------
273
274 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
275 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
276
277 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
278 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
279 removed in the next version.
280 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
281 command in the bottom window.
282 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
283 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
284 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
285 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
286 para_afh.
287 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
288 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
289 being built.
290 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
291
292 -------------------------------------
293 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
294 -------------------------------------
295
296 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
297 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
298
299 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
300 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
301 (corrupt) mp3 files.
302 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
303 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
304 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
305 full tab completion and command line history.
306 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
307 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
308 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
309 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
310 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
311 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
312 delays on slow media.
313 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
314 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
315 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
316 use the DMIX plugin.
317 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
318 - Makefile cleanups.
319 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
320 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
321 given pattern(s).
322
323 --------------------------------------
324 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
325 --------------------------------------
326
327 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
328 are the highlights of this release.
329
330 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
331 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
332 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
333 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
334 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
335 and vice versa.
336 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
337 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
338 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
339 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
340 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
341 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
342 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
343 gengetopt to build the tarball.
344 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
345 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
346 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
347 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
348 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
349 - vss timeout cleanups.
350 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
351
352 --------------------------------------
353 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
354 --------------------------------------
355
356 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
357 enhancements.
358
359 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
360 platforms through the libao audio library.
361 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
362 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
363 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
364 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
365 runs a parallel make if possible.
366 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
367 - Documentation updates.
368
369 ------------------------------------------
370 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
371 ------------------------------------------
372
373 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
374 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
375
376 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
377 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
378 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
379 FEC group size.
380 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
381 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
382 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
383 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
384 to installing the package.
385 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
386 - Scheduler improvements
387 - Proper exit codes for para_write
388 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
389 other improvements and fixes.
390 - aacdec error message cleanups
391 - simplified color error handling
392
393 --------------------------------------------
394 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
395 --------------------------------------------
396
397 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
398
399 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
400 handler code.
401 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
402 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
403 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
404 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
405 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
406 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
407 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
408
409 ------------------------------------------
410 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
411 ------------------------------------------
412
413 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
414 bug fixes.
415
416 - Support for the speex codec.
417 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
418 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
419 considerably.
420 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
421 para_filter/para_audiod.
422 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
423
424 ----------------------------------------
425 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
426 ----------------------------------------
427
428 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
429 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
430
431 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
432 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
433 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
434 parameters for the DCCP transport.
435 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
436 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
437 and INSTALL documents.
438 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
439 - The new nonblock API.
440 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
441 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
442
443 ------------------------------------------
444 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
445 ------------------------------------------
446
447 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
448 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
449 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
450 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
451
452 - The new buffer tree API.
453 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
454 - UDP robustness fixes.
455 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
456 for the new buffer tree API.
457 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
458 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
459 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
460 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
461 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
462
463 ---------------------------------------
464 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
465 ---------------------------------------
466
467 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
468 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
469 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
470
471 - wma support.
472 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
473 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
474 - build system improvements.
475 - source code documentation updates.
476
477 -------------------------------------
478 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
479 -------------------------------------
480
481 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
482 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
483
484 - Always check return value of malloc().
485 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
486 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
487 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
488 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
489 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
490 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
491 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
492 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
493 - FEC: Timing improvements.
494
495 ----------------------------------------------
496 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
497 ----------------------------------------------
498
499 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
500 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
501 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
502 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
503 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
504
505 - stronger crypto for client authentication
506 - the database code has been moved to a library
507 - improved status item handling
508 - cleanup of the build system
509 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
510 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
511 - mandatory rc4 encryption
512 - major audio format handler cleanups
513 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
514 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
515 album_matches, year_maches, year.
516
517 --------------------------------------------
518 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
519 --------------------------------------------
520
521 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
522 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
523 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
524 series if no serious problems show up.
525
526 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
527 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
528 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
529 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
530 with "add -f".
531 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
532 - the new prebuffer filter
533 - improved signal handling
534 - variable fec output buffer size
535 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
536 - --log_color actually works
537 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
538 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
539 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
540 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
541
542 -----------------------------------------
543 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
544 -----------------------------------------
545
546 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
547 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
548 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
549
550 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
551 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
552 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
553 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
554 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
555 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
556 "--loglevel info".
557 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
558 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
559 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
560 - new audiod option: --config-file.
561 - gengetopt cleanups.
562 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
563 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
564 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
565 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
566 modes of operation.
567 - More source code documentation.
568 - vss timing fixes.
569
570 --------------------------------------------
571 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
572 --------------------------------------------
573
574 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
575 amplification filter.
576
577 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
578 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
579 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
580 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
581 - aac meta info support.
582 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
583 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
584 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
585 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
586 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
587 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
588 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
589
590 -----------------------------------------
591 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
592 -----------------------------------------
593
594 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
595
596 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
597 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
598 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
599 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
600 of output.
601 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
602 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
603
604 ---------------------------------------
605 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
606 ---------------------------------------
607
608 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
609 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
610 a good sign.
611
612 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
613 dccp sender.
614 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
615 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
616 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
617 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
618 Gerrit Renker).
619 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
620 - Audiod performance improvements.
621 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
622 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
623 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
624
625 -------------------------------------
626 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
627 -------------------------------------
628
629 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
630
631
632 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
633 for a major release like this.
634
635 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
636 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
637 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
638 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
639
640 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
641 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
642 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
643
644 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
645 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
646 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
647 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
648 - Lyrics support.
649 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
650 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
651 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
652 Solaris (sparc64).
653 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
654 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
655 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
656 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
657 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
658 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
659 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
660 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
661 para_gui is still there.
662 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
663 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
664 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
665 - Improved error subsystem.
666 - The earth-shaking new logo.
667
668 -----------------------------------------
669 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
670 -----------------------------------------
671
672 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
673 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
674
675 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
676 - universal chunk queueing.
677 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
678 to Gerrit Renker).
679 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
680 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
681 codes.
682 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
683 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
684 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
685 compiler characteristics.
686 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
687 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
688
689 --------------------------------------
690 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
691 --------------------------------------
692
693 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
694 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
695 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
696 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
697
698 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
699 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
700 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
701 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
702 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
703 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
704 and AFS_WRITE.
705 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
706 to start only after a few seconds.
707 - fix osx_writer hangs
708 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
709 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
710
711 -----------------------------------------
712 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
713 -----------------------------------------
714
715 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
716
717 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
718 startup rather than for each connection
719 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
720 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
721 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
722 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
723 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
724 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
725 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
726 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
727 correctly
728 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
729 - documentation improvements
730 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
731 - new man pages
732
733 -------------------------------------------
734 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
735 -------------------------------------------
736
737 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
738 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
739 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
740
741 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
742 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
743 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
744 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
745 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
746 - some robustness fixes
747 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
748 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
749 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
750
751 ---------------------------------------
752 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
753 ---------------------------------------
754
755 A bunch of new features and core changes.
756
757 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
758 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
759 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
760 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
761 para_recv and para_filter.
762 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
763 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
764 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
765 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
766 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
767 - update to libortp-0.10.1
768 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
769 - update to autoconf-2.60
770
771 ------------------------------------------
772 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
773 ------------------------------------------
774
775 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
776 features:
777
778 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
779 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
780 for this.
781 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
782 - para_play renamed to para_write
783 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
784 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
785 - compress filter speed improvements
786 - update to libortp-0.9.1
787 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
788 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
789 code for the interactive mode was removed).
790 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
791 work, but it gets no more testing.
792 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
793 reduces its size quite a bit.
794 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
795 and --enable-mysql-libs
796
797 ------------------------------------
798 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
799 ------------------------------------
800
801 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
802 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
803 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
804 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
805
806 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
807 selector)
808 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
809 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
810 more info (and some examples).
811 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
812 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
813 - the new ipc subsystem
814 - new audio file selector: playlist
815 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
816 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
817 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
818 change the selector at runtime.
819 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
820 - para_play fixes
821
822 --------------------------------------
823 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
824 --------------------------------------
825
826 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
827 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
828 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
829 to the new source documentation.
830
831 - autoconf cleanup
832 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
833 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
834 - gui improvements:
835 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
836 - scrollable output window
837 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
838 - fix color of command output.
839 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
840 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
841 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
842
843 -------------------------------------------
844 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
845 -------------------------------------------
846
847 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
848 a lot of small improvements.
849
850 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
851 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
852 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
853 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
854 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
855 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
856 of the ortp receiver.
857 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
858 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
859 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
860 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
861 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
862 and reduces code size.
863
864 -----------------------------------------
865 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
866 -----------------------------------------
867
868 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
869
870 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
871 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
872 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
873 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
874 read/write operations are used).
875 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
876 certain circumstances.
877
878 -------------------------------------------
879 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
880 -------------------------------------------
881
882 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
883
884 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
885 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
886 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
887 too early on a loaded network.
888 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
889 future time by the --start_time option.
890 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
891 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
892 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
893 only the http receiver in this case.
894 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
895 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
896 - improved ortp timings.
897 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
898 gcc < 3.0.
899
900 -------------------------------------------
901 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
902 -------------------------------------------
903
904 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
905 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
906
907 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
908 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
909 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
910 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
911 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
912 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
913 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
914 rather than calling find(1). The server option
915 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
916 - documentation update
917 - man pages
918 - header file cleanup
919 - para_client code cleanup
920 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
921
922 ------------------------------------------
923 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
924 ------------------------------------------
925
926 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
927 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
928 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
929 is no longer needed).
930
931 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
932 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
933 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
934 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
935 in parallel.
936
937 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
938 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
939 sender" for more information.
940 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
941 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
942 http receiver.
943 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
944 senders.
945 - ogg timing improvements
946 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
947 - empty stream definitions work again
948 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
949 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
950
951 ---------------------------------------
952 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
953 ---------------------------------------
954
955 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
956
957 - audiod:
958 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
959 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
960 for more information.
961 - fix memory leak
962 - code cleanup
963 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
964 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
965 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
966 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
967 non-standard places
968 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
969 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
970 new command line option: --announce_time
971
972 -----------------------------------------
973 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
974 -----------------------------------------
975
976 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
977
978 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
979 (including none) filters for each supported audio
980 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
981 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
982 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
983 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
984 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
985 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
986 from stdin.
987 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
988 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
989 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
990 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
991 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
992 clients that play the same stream.
993
994 ------------------------------------------
995 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
996 ------------------------------------------
997
998 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
999 for the mysql database tool.
1000
1001 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
1002 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
1003 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
1004 resulting binaries)
1005 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
1006 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
1007 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
1008 again.
1009 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
1010 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
1011 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
1012 information.
1013
1014 ---------------------------------------
1015 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
1016 ---------------------------------------
1017
1018 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
1019 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
1020
1021 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
1022 - cleanup of the build system
1023 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1024 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1025 line utitlity
1026 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1027 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1028 more information.
1029 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1030 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1031 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1032 Default: "para_client pic"
1033 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1034 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1035
1036 ------------------------------------------
1037 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1038 ------------------------------------------
1039
1040 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1041 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1042 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1043
1044 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1045 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1046 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1047 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1048 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1049 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1050 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1051 libvorbisfile.
1052 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1053 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1054 - documentation updates
1055 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1056 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1057 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1058 playback time rather than streaming time
1059 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1060 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1061 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1062
1063 ----------------------------------------
1064 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1065 ----------------------------------------
1066
1067 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1068 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1069 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1070 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1071
1072 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1073 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1074 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1075 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1076 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1077 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1078 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1079 than from stdin
1080 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1081 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1082 mp3 files with invalid header information
1083 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1084 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1085 - diffstats
1086
1087 ---------------------------------------
1088 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1089 ---------------------------------------
1090
1091 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1092 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1093 stick to mp3...
1094
1095 - fix several memory leaks
1096 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1097 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1098 rename your old database.
1099 - rework ogg vorbis code
1100 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1101 disabled
1102 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1103 - simplified audio format API
1104 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1105
1106 ------------------------------------
1107 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1108 ------------------------------------
1109
1110 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1111
1112 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1113 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1114 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1115 README and FEATURES for more info.
1116 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1117 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1118 race-free.
1119 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1120 - improved help message for sl
1121 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1122 perfectly ok.
1123 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1124
1125 -----------------------------------------
1126 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1127 -----------------------------------------
1128
1129 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1130 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1131 enhancements went also in.
1132
1133 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1134 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1135 exists, rather than returning errors
1136 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1137 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1138 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1139 no server is running
1140 - si: report also server pid
1141 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1142 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1143 - fix pic_add, hist
1144 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1145 - many small fixes and cleanups
1146
1147 ---------------------------------------
1148 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1149 ---------------------------------------
1150
1151 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1152 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1153 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1154 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1155 compatible in that respect.
1156
1157 Visible changes:
1158
1159 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1160 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1161 always work.
1162 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1163 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1164 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1165 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1166 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1167 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1168 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1169 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1170
1171 -------------------------------------------
1172 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1173 -------------------------------------------
1174
1175 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1176
1177 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1178 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1179 id.
1180 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1181
1182 -----------------------------------------
1183 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1184 -----------------------------------------
1185
1186 - gkrellm plugin

1201
1202 -----------------------------------------
1203 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1204 -----------------------------------------
1205
1206 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1207 and stream large audio sets happily)
1208 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1209 streaming software
1210 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1211 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1212 file/config option for dbtool.
1213 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1214 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1215 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1216 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1217 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1218 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1219 show silly logo on startup
1220 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1221 manipulating attributes
1222 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1223 - revised and beautified documentation
1224 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1225 - autoconf
1226
1227 ---------------------------------------------
1228 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1229 ---------------------------------------------
1230
1231 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1232 core code considerably.
1233 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1234 give finer info on afs' status.
1235 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1236 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1237 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1238 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1239 continuously.
1240 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1241 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1242 - codename funnies
1243
