20 ---------------------------------------
21
22 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
23 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
24 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
25 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
26
27 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
28 opus flac aac files.
29 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
30 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
31 inconsistencies.
32 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
33 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
34 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
35 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
36 - Support for the compile-time loglevel feature has been removed.
37 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.
38 - Improved wide-character support and fixes related to signal handling.
39 - para_gui no longer reports 100% playing time at the stream start.
40 - Opus cleanups.

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

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

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

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

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

199 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
200 --------------------------------------
201
202 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
203 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
204 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
205 and fixes all over the place.
206
207 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
208 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
209 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
210 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
211 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
212 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
213 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
214 on shutdown.
215 - Improved manual pages.
216 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
217 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
218 recompilations on changes.
219 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
220 - Improved downloads web page.
221
222 -----------------------------------------
223 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
224 -----------------------------------------
225 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
226 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
227 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
228
229 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
230 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
231 libsamplerate.
232 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
233 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
234 in the new "releases" branch.
235 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
236 written to the "build" directory.
237 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
238 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
239
240 --------------------------------------
241 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
242 --------------------------------------
243
244 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
245 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
246 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
247 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
248 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
249 ALSA writer.
250
251 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
252 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
253 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
254 removed.
255 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
256 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
257 - Documentation improvements.
258 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
259 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
260 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
261 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
262
263 ------------------------------------------
264 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
265 ------------------------------------------
266
267 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
268 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
269
270 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
271 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
272 removed in the next version.
273 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
274 command in the bottom window.
275 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
276 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
277 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
278 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
279 para_afh.
280 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
281 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
282 being built.
283 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
284
285 -------------------------------------
286 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
287 -------------------------------------
288
289 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
290 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
291
292 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
293 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
294 (corrupt) mp3 files.
295 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
296 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
297 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
298 full tab completion and command line history.
299 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
300 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
301 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
302 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
303 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
304 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
305 delays on slow media.
306 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
307 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
308 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
309 use the DMIX plugin.
310 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
311 - Makefile cleanups.
312 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
313 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
314 given pattern(s).
315
316 --------------------------------------
317 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
318 --------------------------------------
319
320 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
321 are the highlights of this release.
322
323 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
324 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
325 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
326 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
327 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
328 and vice versa.
329 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
330 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
331 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
332 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
333 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
334 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
335 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
336 gengetopt to build the tarball.
337 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
338 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
339 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
340 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
341 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
342 - vss timeout cleanups.
343 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
344
345 --------------------------------------
346 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
347 --------------------------------------
348
349 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
350 enhancements.
351
352 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
353 platforms through the libao audio library.
354 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
355 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
356 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
357 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
358 runs a parallel make if possible.
359 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
360 - Documentation updates.
361
362 ------------------------------------------
363 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
364 ------------------------------------------
365
366 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
367 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
368
369 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
370 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
371 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
372 FEC group size.
373 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
374 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
375 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
376 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
377 to installing the package.
378 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
379 - Scheduler improvements
380 - Proper exit codes for para_write
381 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
382 other improvements and fixes.
383 - aacdec error message cleanups
384 - simplified color error handling
385
386 --------------------------------------------
387 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
388 --------------------------------------------
389
390 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
391
392 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
393 handler code.
394 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
395 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
396 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
397 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
398 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
399 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
400 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
401
402 ------------------------------------------
403 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
404 ------------------------------------------
405
406 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
407 bug fixes.
408
409 - Support for the speex codec.
410 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
411 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
412 considerably.
413 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
414 para_filter/para_audiod.
415 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
416
417 ----------------------------------------
418 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
419 ----------------------------------------
420
421 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
422 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
423
424 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
425 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
426 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
427 parameters for the DCCP transport.
428 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
429 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
430 and INSTALL documents.
431 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
432 - The new nonblock API.
433 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
434 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
435
436 ------------------------------------------
437 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
438 ------------------------------------------
439
440 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
441 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
442 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
443 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
444
445 - The new buffer tree API.
446 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
447 - UDP robustness fixes.
448 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
449 for the new buffer tree API.
450 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
451 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
452 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
453 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
454 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
455
456 ---------------------------------------
457 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
458 ---------------------------------------
459
460 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
461 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
462 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
463
464 - wma support.
465 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
466 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
467 - build system improvements.
468 - source code documentation updates.
469
470 -------------------------------------
471 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
472 -------------------------------------
473
474 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
475 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
476
477 - Always check return value of malloc().
478 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
479 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
480 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
481 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
482 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
483 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
484 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
485 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
486 - FEC: Timing improvements.
487
488 ----------------------------------------------
489 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
490 ----------------------------------------------
491
492 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
493 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
494 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
495 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
496 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
497
498 - stronger crypto for client authentication
499 - the database code has been moved to a library
500 - improved status item handling
501 - cleanup of the build system
502 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
503 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
504 - mandatory rc4 encryption
505 - major audio format handler cleanups
506 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
507 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
508 album_matches, year_maches, year.
509
510 --------------------------------------------
511 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
512 --------------------------------------------
513
514 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
515 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
516 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
517 series if no serious problems show up.
518
519 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
520 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
521 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
522 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
523 with "add -f".
524 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
525 - the new prebuffer filter
526 - improved signal handling
527 - variable fec output buffer size
528 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
529 - --log_color actually works
530 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
531 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
532 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
533 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
534
535 -----------------------------------------
536 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
537 -----------------------------------------
538
539 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
540 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
541 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
542
543 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
544 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
545 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
546 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
547 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
548 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
549 "--loglevel info".
550 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
551 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
552 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
553 - new audiod option: --config-file.
554 - gengetopt cleanups.
555 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
556 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
557 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
558 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
559 modes of operation.
560 - More source code documentation.
561 - vss timing fixes.
562
563 --------------------------------------------
564 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
565 --------------------------------------------
566
567 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
568 amplification filter.
569
570 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
571 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
572 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
573 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
574 - aac meta info support.
575 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
576 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
577 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
578 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
579 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
580 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
581 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
582
583 -----------------------------------------
584 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
585 -----------------------------------------
586
587 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
588
589 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
590 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
591 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
592 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
593 of output.
594 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
595 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
596
597 ---------------------------------------
598 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
599 ---------------------------------------
600
601 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
602 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
603 a good sign.
604
605 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
606 dccp sender.
607 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
608 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
609 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
610 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
611 Gerrit Renker).
612 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
613 - Audiod performance improvements.
614 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
615 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
616 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
617
618 -------------------------------------
619 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
620 -------------------------------------
621
622 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
623
624
625 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
626 for a major release like this.
627
628 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
629 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
630 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
631 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
632
633 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
634 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
635 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
636
637 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
638 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
639 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
640 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
641 - Lyrics support.
642 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
643 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
644 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
645 Solaris (sparc64).
646 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
647 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
648 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
649 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
650 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
651 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
652 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
653 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
654 para_gui is still there.
655 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
656 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
657 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
658 - Improved error subsystem.
659 - The earth-shaking new logo.
660
661 -----------------------------------------
662 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
663 -----------------------------------------
664
665 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
666 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
667
668 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
669 - universal chunk queueing.
670 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
671 to Gerrit Renker).
672 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
673 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
674 codes.
675 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
676 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
677 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
678 compiler characteristics.
679 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
680 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
681
682 --------------------------------------
683 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
684 --------------------------------------
685
686 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
687 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
688 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
689 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
690
691 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
692 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
693 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
694 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
695 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
696 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
697 and AFS_WRITE.
698 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
699 to start only after a few seconds.
700 - fix osx_writer hangs
701 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
702 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
703
704 -----------------------------------------
705 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
706 -----------------------------------------
707
708 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
709
710 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
711 startup rather than for each connection
712 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
713 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
714 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
715 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
716 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
717 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
718 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
719 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
720 correctly
721 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
722 - documentation improvements
723 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
724 - new man pages
725
726 -------------------------------------------
727 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
728 -------------------------------------------
729
730 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
731 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
732 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
733
734 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
735 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
736 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
737 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
738 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
739 - some robustness fixes
740 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
741 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
742 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
743
744 ---------------------------------------
745 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
746 ---------------------------------------
747
748 A bunch of new features and core changes.
749
750 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
751 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
752 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
753 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
754 para_recv and para_filter.
755 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
756 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
757 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
758 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
759 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
760 - update to libortp-0.10.1
761 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
762 - update to autoconf-2.60
763
764 ------------------------------------------
765 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
766 ------------------------------------------
767
768 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
769 features:
770
771 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
772 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
773 for this.
774 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
775 - para_play renamed to para_write
776 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
777 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
778 - compress filter speed improvements
779 - update to libortp-0.9.1
780 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
781 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
782 code for the interactive mode was removed).
783 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
784 work, but it gets no more testing.
785 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
786 reduces its size quite a bit.
787 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
788 and --enable-mysql-libs
789
790 ------------------------------------
791 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
792 ------------------------------------
793
794 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
795 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
796 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
797 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
798
799 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
800 selector)
801 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
802 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
803 more info (and some examples).
804 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
805 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
806 - the new ipc subsystem
807 - new audio file selector: playlist
808 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
809 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
810 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
811 change the selector at runtime.
812 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
813 - para_play fixes
814
815 --------------------------------------
816 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
817 --------------------------------------
818
819 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
820 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
821 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
822 to the new source documentation.
823
824 - autoconf cleanup
825 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
826 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
827 - gui improvements:
828 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
829 - scrollable output window
830 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
831 - fix color of command output.
832 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
833 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
834 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
835
836 -------------------------------------------
837 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
838 -------------------------------------------
839
840 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
841 a lot of small improvements.
842
843 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
844 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
845 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
846 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
847 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
848 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
849 of the ortp receiver.
850 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
851 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
852 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
853 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
854 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
855 and reduces code size.
856
857 -----------------------------------------
858 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
859 -----------------------------------------
860
861 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
862
863 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
864 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
865 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
866 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
867 read/write operations are used).
868 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
869 certain circumstances.
870
871 -------------------------------------------
872 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
873 -------------------------------------------
874
875 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
876
877 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
878 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
879 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
880 too early on a loaded network.
881 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
882 future time by the --start_time option.
883 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
884 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
885 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
886 only the http receiver in this case.
887 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
888 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
889 - improved ortp timings.
890 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
891 gcc < 3.0.
892
893 -------------------------------------------
894 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
895 -------------------------------------------
896
897 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
898 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
899
900 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
901 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
902 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
903 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
904 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
905 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
906 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
907 rather than calling find(1). The server option
908 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
909 - documentation update
910 - man pages
911 - header file cleanup
912 - para_client code cleanup
913 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
914
915 ------------------------------------------
916 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
917 ------------------------------------------
918
919 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
920 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
921 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
922 is no longer needed).
923
924 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
925 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
926 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
927 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
928 in parallel.
929
930 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
931 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
932 sender" for more information.
933 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
934 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
935 http receiver.
936 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
937 senders.
938 - ogg timing improvements
939 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
940 - empty stream definitions work again
941 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
942 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
943
944 ---------------------------------------
945 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
946 ---------------------------------------
947
948 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
949
950 - audiod:
951 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
952 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
953 for more information.
954 - fix memory leak
955 - code cleanup
956 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
957 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
958 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
959 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
960 non-standard places
961 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
962 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
963 new command line option: --announce_time
964
965 -----------------------------------------
966 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
967 -----------------------------------------
968
969 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
970
971 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
972 (including none) filters for each supported audio
973 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
974 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
975 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
976 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
977 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
978 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
979 from stdin.
980 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
981 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
982 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
983 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
984 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
985 clients that play the same stream.
986
987 ------------------------------------------
988 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
989 ------------------------------------------
990
991 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
992 for the mysql database tool.
993
994 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
995 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
996 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
997 resulting binaries)
998 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
999 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
1000 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
1001 again.
1002 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
1003 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
1004 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
1005 information.
1006
1007 ---------------------------------------
1008 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
1009 ---------------------------------------
1010
1011 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
1012 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
1013
1014 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
1015 - cleanup of the build system
1016 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1017 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1018 line utitlity
1019 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1020 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1021 more information.
1022 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1023 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1024 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1025 Default: "para_client pic"
1026 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1027 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1028
1029 ------------------------------------------
1030 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1031 ------------------------------------------
1032
1033 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1034 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1035 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1036
1037 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1038 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1039 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1040 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1041 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1042 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1043 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1044 libvorbisfile.
1045 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1046 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1047 - documentation updates
1048 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1049 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1050 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1051 playback time rather than streaming time
1052 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1053 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1054 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1055
1056 ----------------------------------------
1057 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1058 ----------------------------------------
1059
1060 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1061 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1062 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1063 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1064
1065 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1066 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1067 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1068 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1069 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1070 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1071 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1072 than from stdin
1073 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1074 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1075 mp3 files with invalid header information
1076 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1077 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1078 - diffstats
1079
1080 ---------------------------------------
1081 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1082 ---------------------------------------
1083
1084 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1085 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1086 stick to mp3...
1087
1088 - fix several memory leaks
1089 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1090 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1091 rename your old database.
1092 - rework ogg vorbis code
1093 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1094 disabled
1095 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1096 - simplified audio format API
1097 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1098
1099 ------------------------------------
1100 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1101 ------------------------------------
1102
1103 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1104
1105 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1106 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1107 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1108 README and FEATURES for more info.
1109 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1110 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1111 race-free.
1112 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1113 - improved help message for sl
1114 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1115 perfectly ok.
1116 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1117
1118 -----------------------------------------
1119 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1120 -----------------------------------------
1121
1122 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1123 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1124 enhancements went also in.
1125
1126 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1127 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1128 exists, rather than returning errors
1129 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1130 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1131 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1132 no server is running
1133 - si: report also server pid
1134 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1135 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1136 - fix pic_add, hist
1137 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1138 - many small fixes and cleanups
1139
1140 ---------------------------------------
1141 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1142 ---------------------------------------
1143
1144 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1145 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1146 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1147 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1148 compatible in that respect.
1149
1150 Visible changes:
1151
1152 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1153 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1154 always work.
1155 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1156 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1157 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1158 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1159 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1160 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1161 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1162 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1163
1164 -------------------------------------------
1165 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1166 -------------------------------------------
1167
1168 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1169
1170 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1171 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1172 id.
1173 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1174
1175 -----------------------------------------
1176 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1177 -----------------------------------------
1178

1194
1195 -----------------------------------------
1196 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1197 -----------------------------------------
1198
1199 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1200 and stream large audio sets happily)
1201 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1202 streaming software
1203 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1204 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1205 file/config option for dbtool.
1206 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1207 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1208 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1209 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1210 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1211 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1212 show silly logo on startup
1213 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1214 manipulating attributes
1215 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1216 - revised and beautified documentation
1217 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1218 - autoconf
1219
1220 ---------------------------------------------
1221 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1222 ---------------------------------------------
1223
1224 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1225 core code considerably.
1226 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1227 give finer info on afs' status.
1228 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1229 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1230 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1231 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1232 continuously.
1233 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1234 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1235 - codename funnies
1236
