5 current master branch "cascading gradient"
6 ------------------------------------------
7
8 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
9 opus flac aac files.
10 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
11 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
12 inconsistencies.
13 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
14 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.

16
17 --------------------------------------
18 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
19 --------------------------------------
20
21 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
22
23 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
24 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
25 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
26 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
27 usernames rather than only user IDs.
28 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
29 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
30 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
31 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
32 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
33 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
34 - Web page cleanup.
35 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
36 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
37 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
38 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

66 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
67 ---------------------------------------------
68
69 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
70
71 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
72 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
73 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
74 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
75 for the generated man pages.
76 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
77 serious bugs have been fixed.
78 - new audiod command: version.
79 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
80 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
81 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

88 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
89 ----------------------------------------
90
91 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
92 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
93 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
94
95 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
96 clients.
97 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
98 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
99 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
100 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
101 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
102 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
103 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
104 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
105 initial volumes, better error logging.
106 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
107 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
108 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
109 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
110 - Improved user manual.
111 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

117 ------------------------------------------
118 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
119 ------------------------------------------
120
121 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
122 of the build system.
123
124 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
125 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
126 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
127 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
128 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
129 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
130 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
131 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
132 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
133 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
134 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
135 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
136 which further improves build time.
137 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
138 and fixed.

145 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
146 ----------------------------------------
147
148 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
149
150 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
151 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
152 - Addblob commands can produce output.
153 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
154 compiled against libgcrypt.
155 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
156 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
157 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
158 path names.
159 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
160 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
161 the various programs of the paraslash package.
162 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
163 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
164 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

171 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
172 --------------------------------------
173
174 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
175 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
176 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
177 and fixes all over the place.
178
179 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
180 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
181 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
182 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
183 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
184 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
185 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
186 on shutdown.
187 - Improved manual pages.
188 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
189 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
190 recompilations on changes.
191 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
192 - Improved downloads web page.
193
194 -----------------------------------------
195 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
196 -----------------------------------------
197 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
198 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
199 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
200
201 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
202 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
203 libsamplerate.
204 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
205 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
206 in the new "releases" branch.
207 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
208 written to the "build" directory.
209 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
210 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
211
212 --------------------------------------
213 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
214 --------------------------------------
215
216 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
217 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
218 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
219 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
220 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
221 ALSA writer.
222
223 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
224 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
225 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
226 removed.
227 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
228 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
229 - Documentation improvements.
230 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
231 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
232 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
233 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
234
235 ------------------------------------------
236 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
237 ------------------------------------------
238
239 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
240 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
241
242 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
243 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
244 removed in the next version.
245 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
246 command in the bottom window.
247 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
248 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
249 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
250 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
251 para_afh.
252 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
253 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
254 being built.
255 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
256
257 -------------------------------------
258 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
259 -------------------------------------
260
261 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
262 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
263
264 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
265 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
266 (corrupt) mp3 files.
267 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
268 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
269 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
270 full tab completion and command line history.
271 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
272 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
273 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
274 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
275 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
276 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
277 delays on slow media.
278 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
279 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
280 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
281 use the DMIX plugin.
282 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
283 - Makefile cleanups.
284 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
285 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
286 given pattern(s).
287
288 --------------------------------------
289 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
290 --------------------------------------
291
292 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
293 are the highlights of this release.
294
295 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
296 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
297 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
298 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
299 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
300 and vice versa.
301 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
302 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
303 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
304 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
305 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
306 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
307 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
308 gengetopt to build the tarball.
309 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
310 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
311 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
312 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
313 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
314 - vss timeout cleanups.
315 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
316
317 --------------------------------------
318 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
319 --------------------------------------
320
321 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
322 enhancements.
323
324 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
325 platforms through the libao audio library.
326 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
327 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
328 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
329 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
330 runs a parallel make if possible.
331 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
332 - Documentation updates.
333
334 ------------------------------------------
335 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
336 ------------------------------------------
337
338 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
339 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
340
341 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
342 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
343 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
344 FEC group size.
345 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
346 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
347 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
348 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
349 to installing the package.
350 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
351 - Scheduler improvements
352 - Proper exit codes for para_write
353 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
354 other improvements and fixes.
355 - aacdec error message cleanups
356 - simplified color error handling
357
358 --------------------------------------------
359 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
360 --------------------------------------------
361
362 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
363
364 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
365 handler code.
366 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
367 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
368 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
369 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
370 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
371 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
372 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
373
374 ------------------------------------------
375 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
376 ------------------------------------------
377
378 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
379 bug fixes.
380
381 - Support for the speex codec.
382 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
383 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
384 considerably.
385 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
386 para_filter/para_audiod.
387 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
388
389 ----------------------------------------
390 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
391 ----------------------------------------
392
393 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
394 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
395
396 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
397 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
398 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
399 parameters for the DCCP transport.
400 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
401 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
402 and INSTALL documents.
403 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
404 - The new nonblock API.
405 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
406 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
407
408 ------------------------------------------
409 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
410 ------------------------------------------
411
412 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
413 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
414 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
415 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
416
417 - The new buffer tree API.
418 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
419 - UDP robustness fixes.
420 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
421 for the new buffer tree API.
422 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
423 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
424 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
425 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
426 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
427
428 ---------------------------------------
429 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
430 ---------------------------------------
431
432 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
433 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
434 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
435
436 - wma support.
437 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
438 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
439 - build system improvements.
440 - source code documentation updates.
441
442 -------------------------------------
443 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
444 -------------------------------------
445
446 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
447 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
448
449 - Always check return value of malloc().
450 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
451 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
452 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
453 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
454 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
455 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
456 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
457 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
458 - FEC: Timing improvements.
459
460 ----------------------------------------------
461 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
462 ----------------------------------------------
463
464 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
465 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
466 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
467 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
468 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
469
470 - stronger crypto for client authentication
471 - the database code has been moved to a library
472 - improved status item handling
473 - cleanup of the build system
474 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
475 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
476 - mandatory rc4 encryption
477 - major audio format handler cleanups
478 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
479 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
480 album_matches, year_maches, year.
481
482 --------------------------------------------
483 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
484 --------------------------------------------
485
486 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
487 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
488 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
489 series if no serious problems show up.
490
491 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
492 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
493 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
494 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
495 with "add -f".
496 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
497 - the new prebuffer filter
498 - improved signal handling
499 - variable fec output buffer size
500 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
501 - --log_color actually works
502 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
503 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
504 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
505 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
506
507 -----------------------------------------
508 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
509 -----------------------------------------
510
511 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
512 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
513 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
514
515 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
516 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
517 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
518 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
519 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
520 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
521 "--loglevel info".
522 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
523 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
524 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
525 - new audiod option: --config-file.
526 - gengetopt cleanups.
527 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
528 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
529 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
530 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
531 modes of operation.
532 - More source code documentation.
533 - vss timing fixes.
534
535 --------------------------------------------
536 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
537 --------------------------------------------
538
539 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
540 amplification filter.
541
542 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
543 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
544 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
545 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
546 - aac meta info support.
547 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
548 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
549 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
550 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
551 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
552 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
553 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
554
555 -----------------------------------------
556 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
557 -----------------------------------------
558
559 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
560
561 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
562 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
563 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
564 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
565 of output.
566 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
567 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
568
569 ---------------------------------------
570 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
571 ---------------------------------------
572
573 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
574 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
575 a good sign.
576
577 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
578 dccp sender.
579 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
580 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
581 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
582 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
583 Gerrit Renker).
584 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
585 - Audiod performance improvements.
586 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
587 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
588 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
589
590 -------------------------------------
591 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
592 -------------------------------------
593
594 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
595
596
597 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
598 for a major release like this.
599
600 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
601 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
602 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
603 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
604
605 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
606 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
607 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
608
609 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
610 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
611 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
612 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
613 - Lyrics support.
614 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
615 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
616 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
617 Solaris (sparc64).
618 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
619 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
620 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
621 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
622 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
623 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
624 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
625 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
626 para_gui is still there.
627 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
628 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
629 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
630 - Improved error subsystem.
631 - The earth-shaking new logo.
632
633 -----------------------------------------
634 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
635 -----------------------------------------
636
637 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
638 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
639
640 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
641 - universal chunk queueing.
642 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
643 to Gerrit Renker).
644 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
645 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
646 codes.
647 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
648 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
649 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
650 compiler characteristics.
651 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
652 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
653
654 --------------------------------------
655 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
656 --------------------------------------
657
658 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
659 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
660 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
661 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
662
663 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
664 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
665 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
666 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
667 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
668 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
669 and AFS_WRITE.
670 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
671 to start only after a few seconds.
672 - fix osx_writer hangs
673 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
674 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
675
676 -----------------------------------------
677 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
678 -----------------------------------------
679
680 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
681
682 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
683 startup rather than for each connection
684 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
685 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
686 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
687 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
688 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
689 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
690 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
691 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
692 correctly
693 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
694 - documentation improvements
695 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
696 - new man pages
697
698 -------------------------------------------
699 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
700 -------------------------------------------
701
702 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
703 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
704 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
705
706 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
707 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
708 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
709 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
710 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
711 - some robustness fixes
712 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
713 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
714 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
715
716 ---------------------------------------
717 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
718 ---------------------------------------
719
720 A bunch of new features and core changes.
721
722 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
723 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
724 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
725 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
726 para_recv and para_filter.
727 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
728 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
729 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
730 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
731 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
732 - update to libortp-0.10.1
733 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
734 - update to autoconf-2.60
735
736 ------------------------------------------
737 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
738 ------------------------------------------
739
740 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
741 features:
742
743 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
744 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
745 for this.
746 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
747 - para_play renamed to para_write
748 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
749 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
750 - compress filter speed improvements
751 - update to libortp-0.9.1
752 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
753 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
754 code for the interactive mode was removed).
755 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
756 work, but it gets no more testing.
757 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
758 reduces its size quite a bit.
759 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
760 and --enable-mysql-libs
761
762 ------------------------------------
763 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
764 ------------------------------------
765
766 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
767 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
768 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
769 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
770
771 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
772 selector)
773 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
774 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
775 more info (and some examples).
776 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
777 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
778 - the new ipc subsystem
779 - new audio file selector: playlist
780 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
781 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
782 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
783 change the selector at runtime.
784 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
785 - para_play fixes
786
787 --------------------------------------
788 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
789 --------------------------------------
790
791 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
792 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
793 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
794 to the new source documentation.
795
796 - autoconf cleanup
797 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
798 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
799 - gui improvements:
800 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
801 - scrollable output window
802 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
803 - fix color of command output.
804 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
805 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
806 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
807
808 -------------------------------------------
809 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
810 -------------------------------------------
811
812 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
813 a lot of small improvements.
814
815 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
816 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
817 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
818 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
819 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
820 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
821 of the ortp receiver.
822 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
823 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
824 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
825 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
826 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
827 and reduces code size.
828
829 -----------------------------------------
830 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
831 -----------------------------------------
832
833 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
834
835 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
836 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
837 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
838 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
839 read/write operations are used).
840 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
841 certain circumstances.
842
843 -------------------------------------------
844 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
845 -------------------------------------------
846
847 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
848
849 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
850 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
851 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
852 too early on a loaded network.
853 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
854 future time by the --start_time option.
855 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
856 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
857 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
858 only the http receiver in this case.
859 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
860 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
861 - improved ortp timings.
862 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
863 gcc < 3.0.
864
865 -------------------------------------------
866 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
867 -------------------------------------------
868
869 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
870 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
871
872 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
873 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
874 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
875 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
876 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
877 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
878 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
879 rather than calling find(1). The server option
880 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
881 - documentation update
882 - man pages
883 - header file cleanup
884 - para_client code cleanup
885 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
886
887 ------------------------------------------
888 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
889 ------------------------------------------
890
891 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
892 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
893 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
894 is no longer needed).
895
896 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
897 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
898 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
899 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
900 in parallel.
901
902 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
903 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
904 sender" for more information.
905 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
906 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
907 http receiver.
908 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
909 senders.
910 - ogg timing improvements
911 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
912 - empty stream definitions work again
913 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
914 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
915
916 ---------------------------------------
917 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
918 ---------------------------------------
919
920 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
921
922 - audiod:
923 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
924 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
925 for more information.
926 - fix memory leak
927 - code cleanup
928 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
929 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
930 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
931 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
932 non-standard places
933 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
934 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
935 new command line option: --announce_time
936
937 -----------------------------------------
938 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
939 -----------------------------------------
940
941 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
942
943 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
944 (including none) filters for each supported audio
945 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
946 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
947 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
948 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
949 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
950 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
951 from stdin.
952 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
953 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
954 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
955 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
956 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
957 clients that play the same stream.
958
959 ------------------------------------------
960 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
961 ------------------------------------------
962
963 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
964 for the mysql database tool.
965
966 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
967 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
968 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
969 resulting binaries)
970 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
971 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
972 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
973 again.
974 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
975 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
976 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
977 information.
978
979 ---------------------------------------
980 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
981 ---------------------------------------
982
983 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
984 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
985
986 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
987 - cleanup of the build system
988 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
989 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
990 line utitlity
991 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
992 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
993 more information.
994 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
995 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
996 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
997 Default: "para_client pic"
998 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
999 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1000
1001 ------------------------------------------
1002 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1003 ------------------------------------------
1004
1005 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1006 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1007 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1008
1009 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1010 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1011 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1012 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1013 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1014 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1015 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1016 libvorbisfile.
1017 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1018 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1019 - documentation updates
1020 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1021 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1022 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1023 playback time rather than streaming time
1024 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1025 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1026 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1027
1028 ----------------------------------------
1029 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1030 ----------------------------------------
1031
1032 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1033 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1034 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1035 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1036
1037 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1038 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1039 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1040 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1041 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1042 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1043 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1044 than from stdin
1045 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1046 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1047 mp3 files with invalid header information
1048 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1049 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1050 - diffstats
1051
1052 ---------------------------------------
1053 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1054 ---------------------------------------
1055
1056 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1057 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1058 stick to mp3...
1059
1060 - fix several memory leaks
1061 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1062 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1063 rename your old database.
1064 - rework ogg vorbis code
1065 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1066 disabled
1067 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1068 - simplified audio format API
1069 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1070
1071 ------------------------------------
1072 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1073 ------------------------------------
1074
1075 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1076
1077 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1078 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1079 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1080 README and FEATURES for more info.
1081 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1082 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1083 race-free.
1084 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1085 - improved help message for sl
1086 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1087 perfectly ok.
1088 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1089
1090 -----------------------------------------
1091 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1092 -----------------------------------------
1093
1094 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1095 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1096 enhancements went also in.
1097
1098 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1099 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1100 exists, rather than returning errors
1101 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1102 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1103 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1104 no server is running
1105 - si: report also server pid
1106 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1107 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1108 - fix pic_add, hist
1109 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1110 - many small fixes and cleanups
1111
1112 ---------------------------------------
1113 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1114 ---------------------------------------
1115
1116 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1117 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1118 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1119 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1120 compatible in that respect.
1121
1122 Visible changes:
1123
1124 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1125 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1126 always work.
1127 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1128 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1129 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1130 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1131 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1132 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1133 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1134 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1135
1136 -------------------------------------------
1137 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1138 -------------------------------------------
1139
1140 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1141
1142 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1143 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1144 id.
1145 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1146
1147 -----------------------------------------
1148 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1149 -----------------------------------------
1150

1166
1167 -----------------------------------------
1168 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1169 -----------------------------------------
1170
1171 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1172 and stream large audio sets happily)
1173 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1174 streaming software
1175 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1176 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1177 file/config option for dbtool.
1178 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1179 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1180 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1181 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1182 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1183 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1184 show silly logo on startup
1185 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1186 manipulating attributes
1187 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1195
1196 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1197 core code considerably.
1198 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1199 give finer info on afs' status.
1200 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1201 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1202 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1203 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1204 continuously.
1205 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1206 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1207 - codename funnies
