8 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
9 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
10 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
11 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
12
13 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
14 opus flac aac files.
15 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
16 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
17 inconsistencies.
18 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
19 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
20 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
21 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
22 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.
23 - Improved wide-character support and fixes related to signal handling.
24 - para_gui no longer reports 100% playing time at the stream start.
25 - Opus cleanups.

30 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
31 --------------------------------------
32
33 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
34
35 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
36 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
37 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
38 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
39 usernames rather than only user IDs.
40 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
41 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
42 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
43 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
44 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
45 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
46 - Web page cleanup.
47 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
48 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
49 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
50 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

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

100 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
101 ----------------------------------------
102
103 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
104 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
105 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
106
107 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
108 clients.
109 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
110 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
111 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
112 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
113 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
114 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
115 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
116 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
117 initial volumes, better error logging.
118 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
119 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
120 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
121 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
122 - Improved user manual.
123 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

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

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

183 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
184 --------------------------------------
185
186 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
187 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
188 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
189 and fixes all over the place.
190
191 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
192 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
193 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
194 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
195 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
196 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
197 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
198 on shutdown.
199 - Improved manual pages.
200 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
201 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
202 recompilations on changes.
203 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
204 - Improved downloads web page.
205
206 -----------------------------------------
207 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
208 -----------------------------------------
209 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
210 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
211 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
212
213 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
214 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
215 libsamplerate.
216 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
217 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
218 in the new "releases" branch.
219 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
220 written to the "build" directory.
221 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
222 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
223
224 --------------------------------------
225 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
226 --------------------------------------
227
228 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
229 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
230 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
231 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
232 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
233 ALSA writer.
234
235 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
236 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
237 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
238 removed.
239 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
240 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
241 - Documentation improvements.
242 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
243 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
244 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
245 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
246
247 ------------------------------------------
248 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
249 ------------------------------------------
250
251 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
252 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
253
254 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
255 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
256 removed in the next version.
257 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
258 command in the bottom window.
259 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
260 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
261 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
262 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
263 para_afh.
264 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
265 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
266 being built.
267 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
268
269 -------------------------------------
270 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
271 -------------------------------------
272
273 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
274 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
275
276 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
277 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
278 (corrupt) mp3 files.
279 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
280 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
281 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
282 full tab completion and command line history.
283 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
284 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
285 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
286 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
287 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
288 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
289 delays on slow media.
290 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
291 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
292 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
293 use the DMIX plugin.
294 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
295 - Makefile cleanups.
296 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
297 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
298 given pattern(s).
299
300 --------------------------------------
301 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
302 --------------------------------------
303
304 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
305 are the highlights of this release.
306
307 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
308 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
309 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
310 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
311 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
312 and vice versa.
313 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
314 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
315 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
316 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
317 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
318 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
319 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
320 gengetopt to build the tarball.
321 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
322 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
323 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
324 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
325 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
326 - vss timeout cleanups.
327 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
328
329 --------------------------------------
330 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
331 --------------------------------------
332
333 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
334 enhancements.
335
336 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
337 platforms through the libao audio library.
338 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
339 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
340 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
341 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
342 runs a parallel make if possible.
343 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
344 - Documentation updates.
345
346 ------------------------------------------
347 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
348 ------------------------------------------
349
350 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
351 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
352
353 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
354 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
355 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
356 FEC group size.
357 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
358 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
359 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
360 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
361 to installing the package.
362 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
363 - Scheduler improvements
364 - Proper exit codes for para_write
365 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
366 other improvements and fixes.
367 - aacdec error message cleanups
368 - simplified color error handling
369
370 --------------------------------------------
371 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
372 --------------------------------------------
373
374 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
375
376 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
377 handler code.
378 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
379 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
380 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
381 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
382 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
383 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
384 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
385
386 ------------------------------------------
387 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
388 ------------------------------------------
389
390 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
391 bug fixes.
392
393 - Support for the speex codec.
394 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
395 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
396 considerably.
397 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
398 para_filter/para_audiod.
399 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
400
401 ----------------------------------------
402 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
403 ----------------------------------------
404
405 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
406 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
407
408 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
409 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
410 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
411 parameters for the DCCP transport.
412 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
413 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
414 and INSTALL documents.
415 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
416 - The new nonblock API.
417 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
418 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
419
420 ------------------------------------------
421 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
422 ------------------------------------------
423
424 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
425 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
426 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
427 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
428
429 - The new buffer tree API.
430 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
431 - UDP robustness fixes.
432 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
433 for the new buffer tree API.
434 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
435 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
436 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
437 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
438 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
439
440 ---------------------------------------
441 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
442 ---------------------------------------
443
444 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
445 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
446 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
447
448 - wma support.
449 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
450 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
451 - build system improvements.
452 - source code documentation updates.
453
454 -------------------------------------
455 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
456 -------------------------------------
457
458 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
459 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
460
461 - Always check return value of malloc().
462 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
463 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
464 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
465 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
466 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
467 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
468 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
469 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
470 - FEC: Timing improvements.
471
472 ----------------------------------------------
473 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
474 ----------------------------------------------
475
476 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
477 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
478 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
479 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
480 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
481
482 - stronger crypto for client authentication
483 - the database code has been moved to a library
484 - improved status item handling
485 - cleanup of the build system
486 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
487 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
488 - mandatory rc4 encryption
489 - major audio format handler cleanups
490 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
491 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
492 album_matches, year_maches, year.
493
494 --------------------------------------------
495 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
496 --------------------------------------------
497
498 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
499 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
500 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
501 series if no serious problems show up.
502
503 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
504 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
505 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
506 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
507 with "add -f".
508 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
509 - the new prebuffer filter
510 - improved signal handling
511 - variable fec output buffer size
512 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
513 - --log_color actually works
514 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
515 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
516 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
517 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
518
519 -----------------------------------------
520 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
521 -----------------------------------------
522
523 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
524 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
525 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
526
527 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
528 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
529 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
530 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
531 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
532 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
533 "--loglevel info".
534 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
535 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
536 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
537 - new audiod option: --config-file.
538 - gengetopt cleanups.
539 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
540 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
541 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
542 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
543 modes of operation.
544 - More source code documentation.
545 - vss timing fixes.
546
547 --------------------------------------------
548 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
549 --------------------------------------------
550
551 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
552 amplification filter.
553
554 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
555 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
556 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
557 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
558 - aac meta info support.
559 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
560 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
561 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
562 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
563 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
564 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
565 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
566
567 -----------------------------------------
568 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
569 -----------------------------------------
570
571 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
572
573 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
574 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
575 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
576 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
577 of output.
578 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
579 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
580
581 ---------------------------------------
582 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
583 ---------------------------------------
584
585 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
586 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
587 a good sign.
588
589 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
590 dccp sender.
591 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
592 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
593 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
594 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
595 Gerrit Renker).
596 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
597 - Audiod performance improvements.
598 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
599 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
600 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
601
602 -------------------------------------
603 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
604 -------------------------------------
605
606 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
607
608
609 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
610 for a major release like this.
611
612 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
613 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
614 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
615 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
616
617 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
618 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
619 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
620
621 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
622 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
623 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
624 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
625 - Lyrics support.
626 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
627 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
628 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
629 Solaris (sparc64).
630 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
631 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
632 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
633 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
634 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
635 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
636 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
637 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
638 para_gui is still there.
639 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
640 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
641 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
642 - Improved error subsystem.
643 - The earth-shaking new logo.
644
645 -----------------------------------------
646 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
647 -----------------------------------------
648
649 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
650 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
651
652 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
653 - universal chunk queueing.
654 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
655 to Gerrit Renker).
656 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
657 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
658 codes.
659 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
660 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
661 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
662 compiler characteristics.
663 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
664 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
665
666 --------------------------------------
667 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
668 --------------------------------------
669
670 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
671 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
672 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
673 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
674
675 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
676 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
677 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
678 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
679 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
680 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
681 and AFS_WRITE.
682 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
683 to start only after a few seconds.
684 - fix osx_writer hangs
685 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
686 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
687
688 -----------------------------------------
689 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
690 -----------------------------------------
691
692 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
693
694 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
695 startup rather than for each connection
696 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
697 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
698 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
699 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
700 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
701 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
702 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
703 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
704 correctly
705 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
706 - documentation improvements
707 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
708 - new man pages
709
710 -------------------------------------------
711 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
712 -------------------------------------------
713
714 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
715 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
716 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
717
718 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
719 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
720 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
721 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
722 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
723 - some robustness fixes
724 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
725 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
726 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
727
728 ---------------------------------------
729 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
730 ---------------------------------------
731
732 A bunch of new features and core changes.
733
734 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
735 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
736 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
737 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
738 para_recv and para_filter.
739 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
740 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
741 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
742 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
743 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
744 - update to libortp-0.10.1
745 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
746 - update to autoconf-2.60
747
748 ------------------------------------------
749 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
750 ------------------------------------------
751
752 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
753 features:
754
755 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
756 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
757 for this.
758 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
759 - para_play renamed to para_write
760 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
761 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
762 - compress filter speed improvements
763 - update to libortp-0.9.1
764 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
765 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
766 code for the interactive mode was removed).
767 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
768 work, but it gets no more testing.
769 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
770 reduces its size quite a bit.
771 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
772 and --enable-mysql-libs
773
774 ------------------------------------
775 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
776 ------------------------------------
777
778 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
779 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
780 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
781 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
782
783 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
784 selector)
785 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
786 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
787 more info (and some examples).
788 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
789 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
790 - the new ipc subsystem
791 - new audio file selector: playlist
792 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
793 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
794 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
795 change the selector at runtime.
796 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
797 - para_play fixes
798
799 --------------------------------------
800 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
801 --------------------------------------
802
803 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
804 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
805 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
806 to the new source documentation.
807
808 - autoconf cleanup
809 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
810 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
811 - gui improvements:
812 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
813 - scrollable output window
814 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
815 - fix color of command output.
816 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
817 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
818 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
819
820 -------------------------------------------
821 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
822 -------------------------------------------
823
824 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
825 a lot of small improvements.
826
827 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
828 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
829 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
830 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
831 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
832 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
833 of the ortp receiver.
834 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
835 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
836 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
837 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
838 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
839 and reduces code size.
840
841 -----------------------------------------
842 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
843 -----------------------------------------
844
845 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
846
847 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
848 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
849 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
850 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
851 read/write operations are used).
852 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
853 certain circumstances.
854
855 -------------------------------------------
856 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
857 -------------------------------------------
858
859 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
860
861 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
862 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
863 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
864 too early on a loaded network.
865 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
866 future time by the --start_time option.
867 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
868 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
869 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
870 only the http receiver in this case.
871 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
872 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
873 - improved ortp timings.
874 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
875 gcc < 3.0.
876
877 -------------------------------------------
878 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
879 -------------------------------------------
880
881 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
882 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
883
884 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
885 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
886 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
887 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
888 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
889 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
890 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
891 rather than calling find(1). The server option
892 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
893 - documentation update
894 - man pages
895 - header file cleanup
896 - para_client code cleanup
897 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
898
899 ------------------------------------------
900 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
901 ------------------------------------------
902
903 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
904 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
905 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
906 is no longer needed).
907
908 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
909 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
910 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
911 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
912 in parallel.
913
914 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
915 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
916 sender" for more information.
917 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
918 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
919 http receiver.
920 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
921 senders.
922 - ogg timing improvements
923 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
924 - empty stream definitions work again
925 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
926 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
927
928 ---------------------------------------
929 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
930 ---------------------------------------
931
932 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
933
934 - audiod:
935 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
936 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
937 for more information.
938 - fix memory leak
939 - code cleanup
940 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
941 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
942 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
943 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
944 non-standard places
945 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
946 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
947 new command line option: --announce_time
948
949 -----------------------------------------
950 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
951 -----------------------------------------
952
953 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
954
955 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
956 (including none) filters for each supported audio
957 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
958 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
959 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
960 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
961 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
962 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
963 from stdin.
964 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
965 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
966 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
967 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
968 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
969 clients that play the same stream.
970
971 ------------------------------------------
972 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
973 ------------------------------------------
974
975 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
976 for the mysql database tool.
977
978 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
979 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
980 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
981 resulting binaries)
982 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
983 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
984 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
985 again.
986 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
987 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
988 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
989 information.
990
991 ---------------------------------------
992 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
993 ---------------------------------------
994
995 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
996 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
997
998 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
999 - cleanup of the build system
1000 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1001 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1002 line utitlity
1003 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1004 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1005 more information.
1006 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1007 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1008 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1009 Default: "para_client pic"
1010 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1011 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1012
1013 ------------------------------------------
1014 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1015 ------------------------------------------
1016
1017 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1018 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1019 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1020
1021 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1022 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1023 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1024 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1025 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1026 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1027 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1028 libvorbisfile.
1029 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1030 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1031 - documentation updates
1032 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1033 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1034 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1035 playback time rather than streaming time
1036 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1037 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1038 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1039
1040 ----------------------------------------
1041 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1042 ----------------------------------------
1043
1044 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1045 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1046 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1047 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1048
1049 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1050 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1051 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1052 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1053 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1054 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1055 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1056 than from stdin
1057 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1058 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1059 mp3 files with invalid header information
1060 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1061 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1062 - diffstats
1063
1064 ---------------------------------------
1065 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1066 ---------------------------------------
1067
1068 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1069 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1070 stick to mp3...
1071
1072 - fix several memory leaks
1073 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1074 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1075 rename your old database.
1076 - rework ogg vorbis code
1077 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1078 disabled
1079 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1080 - simplified audio format API
1081 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1082
1083 ------------------------------------
1084 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1085 ------------------------------------
1086
1087 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1088
1089 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1090 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1091 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1092 README and FEATURES for more info.
1093 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1094 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1095 race-free.
1096 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1097 - improved help message for sl
1098 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1099 perfectly ok.
1100 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1101
1102 -----------------------------------------
1103 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1104 -----------------------------------------
1105
1106 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1107 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1108 enhancements went also in.
1109
1110 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1111 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1112 exists, rather than returning errors
1113 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1114 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1115 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1116 no server is running
1117 - si: report also server pid
1118 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1119 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1120 - fix pic_add, hist
1121 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1122 - many small fixes and cleanups
1123
1124 ---------------------------------------
1125 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1126 ---------------------------------------
1127
1128 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1129 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1130 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1131 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1132 compatible in that respect.
1133
1134 Visible changes:
1135
1136 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1137 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1138 always work.
1139 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1140 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1141 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1142 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1143 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1144 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1145 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1146 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1147
1148 -------------------------------------------
1149 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1150 -------------------------------------------
1151
1152 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1153
1154 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1155 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1156 id.
1157 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1158
1159 -----------------------------------------
1160 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1161 -----------------------------------------
1162
1163 - gkrellm plugin

1165 with your favorite mail reader.

1178
1179 -----------------------------------------
1180 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1181 -----------------------------------------
1182
1183 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1184 and stream large audio sets happily)
1185 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1186 streaming software
1187 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1188 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1189 file/config option for dbtool.
1190 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1191 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1192 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1193 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1194 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1195 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1196 show silly logo on startup
1197 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1198 manipulating attributes
1199 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1203
1204 ---------------------------------------------
1205 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1206 ---------------------------------------------
1207
1208 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1209 core code considerably.
1210 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1211 give finer info on afs' status.
1212 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1213 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1214 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1215 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1216 continuously.
1217 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1218 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1219 - codename funnies
