19 ---------------------------------------
20
21 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
22 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
23 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
24 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
25
26 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
27 opus flac aac files.
28 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
29 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
30 inconsistencies.
31 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
32 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
33 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
34 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
35 - Support for the compile-time loglevel feature has been removed.
36 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.

46 --------------------------------------
47
48 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
49
50 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
51 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
52 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
53 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
54 usernames rather than only user IDs.
55 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
56 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
57 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
58 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
59 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
60 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
61 - Web page cleanup.
62 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
63 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
64 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
65 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

93 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
94 ---------------------------------------------
95
96 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
97
98 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
99 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
100 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
101 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
102 for the generated man pages.
103 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
104 serious bugs have been fixed.
105 - new audiod command: version.
106 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
107 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
108 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

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

144 ------------------------------------------
145 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
146 ------------------------------------------
147
148 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
149 of the build system.
150
151 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
152 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
153 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
154 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
155 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
156 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
157 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
158 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
159 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
160 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
161 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
162 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
163 which further improves build time.
164 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
165 and fixed.

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

198 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
199 --------------------------------------
200
201 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
202 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
203 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
204 and fixes all over the place.
205
206 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
207 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
208 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
209 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
210 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
211 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
212 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
213 on shutdown.
214 - Improved manual pages.
215 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
216 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
217 recompilations on changes.
218 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
219 - Improved downloads web page.
220
221 -----------------------------------------
222 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
223 -----------------------------------------
224 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
225 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
226 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
227
228 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
229 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
230 libsamplerate.
231 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
232 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
233 in the new "releases" branch.
234 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
235 written to the "build" directory.
236 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
237 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
238
239 --------------------------------------
240 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
241 --------------------------------------
242
243 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
244 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
245 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
246 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
247 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
248 ALSA writer.
249
250 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
251 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
252 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
253 removed.
254 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
255 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
256 - Documentation improvements.
257 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
258 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
259 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
260 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
261
262 ------------------------------------------
263 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
264 ------------------------------------------
265
266 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
267 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
268
269 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
270 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
271 removed in the next version.
272 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
273 command in the bottom window.
274 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
275 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
276 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
277 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
278 para_afh.
279 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
280 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
281 being built.
282 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
283
284 -------------------------------------
285 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
286 -------------------------------------
287
288 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
289 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
290
291 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
292 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
293 (corrupt) mp3 files.
294 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
295 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
296 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
297 full tab completion and command line history.
298 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
299 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
300 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
301 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
302 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
303 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
304 delays on slow media.
305 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
306 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
307 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
308 use the DMIX plugin.
309 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
310 - Makefile cleanups.
311 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
312 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
313 given pattern(s).
314
315 --------------------------------------
316 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
317 --------------------------------------
318
319 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
320 are the highlights of this release.
321
322 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
323 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
324 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
325 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
326 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
327 and vice versa.
328 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
329 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
330 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
331 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
332 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
333 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
334 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
335 gengetopt to build the tarball.
336 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
337 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
338 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
339 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
340 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
341 - vss timeout cleanups.
342 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
343
344 --------------------------------------
345 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
346 --------------------------------------
347
348 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
349 enhancements.
350
351 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
352 platforms through the libao audio library.
353 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
354 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
355 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
356 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
357 runs a parallel make if possible.
358 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
359 - Documentation updates.
360
361 ------------------------------------------
362 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
363 ------------------------------------------
364
365 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
366 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
367
368 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
369 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
370 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
371 FEC group size.
372 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
373 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
374 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
375 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
376 to installing the package.
377 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
378 - Scheduler improvements
379 - Proper exit codes for para_write
380 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
381 other improvements and fixes.
382 - aacdec error message cleanups
383 - simplified color error handling
384
385 --------------------------------------------
386 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
387 --------------------------------------------
388
389 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
390
391 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
392 handler code.
393 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
394 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
395 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
396 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
397 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
398 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
399 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
400
401 ------------------------------------------
402 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
403 ------------------------------------------
404
405 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
406 bug fixes.
407
408 - Support for the speex codec.
409 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
410 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
411 considerably.
412 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
413 para_filter/para_audiod.
414 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
415
416 ----------------------------------------
417 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
418 ----------------------------------------
419
420 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
421 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
422
423 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
424 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
425 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
426 parameters for the DCCP transport.
427 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
428 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
429 and INSTALL documents.
430 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
431 - The new nonblock API.
432 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
433 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
434
435 ------------------------------------------
436 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
437 ------------------------------------------
438
439 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
440 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
441 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
442 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
443
444 - The new buffer tree API.
445 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
446 - UDP robustness fixes.
447 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
448 for the new buffer tree API.
449 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
450 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
451 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
452 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
453 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
454
455 ---------------------------------------
456 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
457 ---------------------------------------
458
459 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
460 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
461 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
462
463 - wma support.
464 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
465 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
466 - build system improvements.
467 - source code documentation updates.
468
469 -------------------------------------
470 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
471 -------------------------------------
472
473 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
474 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
475
476 - Always check return value of malloc().
477 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
478 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
479 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
480 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
481 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
482 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
483 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
484 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
485 - FEC: Timing improvements.
486
487 ----------------------------------------------
488 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
489 ----------------------------------------------
490
491 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
492 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
493 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
494 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
495 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
496
497 - stronger crypto for client authentication
498 - the database code has been moved to a library
499 - improved status item handling
500 - cleanup of the build system
501 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
502 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
503 - mandatory rc4 encryption
504 - major audio format handler cleanups
505 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
506 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
507 album_matches, year_maches, year.
508
509 --------------------------------------------
510 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
511 --------------------------------------------
512
513 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
514 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
515 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
516 series if no serious problems show up.
517
518 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
519 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
520 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
521 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
522 with "add -f".
523 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
524 - the new prebuffer filter
525 - improved signal handling
526 - variable fec output buffer size
527 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
528 - --log_color actually works
529 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
530 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
531 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
532 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
533
534 -----------------------------------------
535 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
536 -----------------------------------------
537
538 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
539 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
540 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
541
542 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
543 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
544 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
545 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
546 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
547 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
548 "--loglevel info".
549 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
550 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
551 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
552 - new audiod option: --config-file.
553 - gengetopt cleanups.
554 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
555 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
556 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
557 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
558 modes of operation.
559 - More source code documentation.
560 - vss timing fixes.
561
562 --------------------------------------------
563 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
564 --------------------------------------------
565
566 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
567 amplification filter.
568
569 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
570 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
571 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
572 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
573 - aac meta info support.
574 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
575 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
576 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
577 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
578 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
579 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
580 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
581
582 -----------------------------------------
583 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
584 -----------------------------------------
585
586 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
587
588 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
589 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
590 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
591 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
592 of output.
593 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
594 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
595
596 ---------------------------------------
597 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
598 ---------------------------------------
599
600 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
601 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
602 a good sign.
603
604 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
605 dccp sender.
606 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
607 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
608 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
609 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
610 Gerrit Renker).
611 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
612 - Audiod performance improvements.
613 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
614 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
615 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
616
617 -------------------------------------
618 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
619 -------------------------------------
620
621 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
622
623
624 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
625 for a major release like this.
626
627 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
628 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
629 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
630 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
631
632 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
633 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
634 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
635
636 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
637 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
638 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
639 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
640 - Lyrics support.
641 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
642 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
643 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
644 Solaris (sparc64).
645 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
646 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
647 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
648 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
649 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
650 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
651 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
652 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
653 para_gui is still there.
654 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
655 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
656 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
657 - Improved error subsystem.
658 - The earth-shaking new logo.
659
660 -----------------------------------------
661 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
662 -----------------------------------------
663
664 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
665 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
666
667 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
668 - universal chunk queueing.
669 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
670 to Gerrit Renker).
671 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
672 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
673 codes.
674 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
675 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
676 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
677 compiler characteristics.
678 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
679 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
680
681 --------------------------------------
682 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
683 --------------------------------------
684
685 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
686 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
687 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
688 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
689
690 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
691 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
692 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
693 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
694 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
695 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
696 and AFS_WRITE.
697 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
698 to start only after a few seconds.
699 - fix osx_writer hangs
700 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
701 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
702
703 -----------------------------------------
704 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
705 -----------------------------------------
706
707 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
708
709 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
710 startup rather than for each connection
711 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
712 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
713 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
714 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
715 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
716 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
717 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
718 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
719 correctly
720 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
721 - documentation improvements
722 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
723 - new man pages
724
725 -------------------------------------------
726 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
727 -------------------------------------------
728
729 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
730 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
731 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
732
733 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
734 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
735 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
736 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
737 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
738 - some robustness fixes
739 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
740 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
741 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
742
743 ---------------------------------------
744 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
745 ---------------------------------------
746
747 A bunch of new features and core changes.
748
749 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
750 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
751 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
752 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
753 para_recv and para_filter.
754 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
755 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
756 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
757 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
758 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
759 - update to libortp-0.10.1
760 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
761 - update to autoconf-2.60
762
763 ------------------------------------------
764 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
765 ------------------------------------------
766
767 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
768 features:
769
770 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
771 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
772 for this.
773 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
774 - para_play renamed to para_write
775 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
776 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
777 - compress filter speed improvements
778 - update to libortp-0.9.1
779 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
780 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
781 code for the interactive mode was removed).
782 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
783 work, but it gets no more testing.
784 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
785 reduces its size quite a bit.
786 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
787 and --enable-mysql-libs
788
789 ------------------------------------
790 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
791 ------------------------------------
792
793 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
794 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
795 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
796 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
797
798 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
799 selector)
800 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
801 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
802 more info (and some examples).
803 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
804 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
805 - the new ipc subsystem
806 - new audio file selector: playlist
807 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
808 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
809 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
810 change the selector at runtime.
811 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
812 - para_play fixes
813
814 --------------------------------------
815 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
816 --------------------------------------
817
818 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
819 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
820 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
821 to the new source documentation.
822
823 - autoconf cleanup
824 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
825 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
826 - gui improvements:
827 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
828 - scrollable output window
829 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
830 - fix color of command output.
831 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
832 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
833 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
834
835 -------------------------------------------
836 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
837 -------------------------------------------
838
839 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
840 a lot of small improvements.
841
842 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
843 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
844 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
845 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
846 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
847 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
848 of the ortp receiver.
849 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
850 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
851 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
852 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
853 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
854 and reduces code size.
855
856 -----------------------------------------
857 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
858 -----------------------------------------
859
860 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
861
862 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
863 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
864 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
865 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
866 read/write operations are used).
867 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
868 certain circumstances.
869
870 -------------------------------------------
871 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
872 -------------------------------------------
873
874 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
875
876 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
877 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
878 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
879 too early on a loaded network.
880 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
881 future time by the --start_time option.
882 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
883 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
884 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
885 only the http receiver in this case.
886 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
887 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
888 - improved ortp timings.
889 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
890 gcc < 3.0.
891
892 -------------------------------------------
893 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
894 -------------------------------------------
895
896 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
897 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
898
899 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
900 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
901 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
902 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
903 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
904 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
905 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
906 rather than calling find(1). The server option
907 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
908 - documentation update
909 - man pages
910 - header file cleanup
911 - para_client code cleanup
912 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
913
914 ------------------------------------------
915 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
916 ------------------------------------------
917
918 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
919 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
920 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
921 is no longer needed).
922
923 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
924 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
925 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
926 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
927 in parallel.
928
929 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
930 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
931 sender" for more information.
932 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
933 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
934 http receiver.
935 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
936 senders.
937 - ogg timing improvements
938 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
939 - empty stream definitions work again
940 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
941 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
942
943 ---------------------------------------
944 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
945 ---------------------------------------
946
947 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
948
949 - audiod:
950 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
951 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
952 for more information.
953 - fix memory leak
954 - code cleanup
955 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
956 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
957 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
958 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
959 non-standard places
960 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
961 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
962 new command line option: --announce_time
963
964 -----------------------------------------
965 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
966 -----------------------------------------
967
968 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
969
970 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
971 (including none) filters for each supported audio
972 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
973 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
974 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
975 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
976 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
977 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
978 from stdin.
979 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
980 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
981 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
982 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
983 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
984 clients that play the same stream.
985
986 ------------------------------------------
987 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
988 ------------------------------------------
989
990 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
991 for the mysql database tool.
992
993 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
994 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
995 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
996 resulting binaries)
997 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
998 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
999 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
1000 again.
1001 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
1002 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
1003 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
1004 information.
1005
1006 ---------------------------------------
1007 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
1008 ---------------------------------------
1009
1010 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
1011 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
1012
1013 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
1014 - cleanup of the build system
1015 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
1016 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
1017 line utitlity
1018 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1019 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1020 more information.
1021 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1022 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1023 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1024 Default: "para_client pic"
1025 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1026 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1027
1028 ------------------------------------------
1029 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1030 ------------------------------------------
1031
1032 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1033 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1034 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1035
1036 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1037 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1038 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1039 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1040 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1041 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1042 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1043 libvorbisfile.
1044 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1045 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1046 - documentation updates
1047 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1048 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1049 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1050 playback time rather than streaming time
1051 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1052 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1053 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1054
1055 ----------------------------------------
1056 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1057 ----------------------------------------
1058
1059 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1060 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1061 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1062 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1063
1064 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1065 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1066 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1067 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1068 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1069 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1070 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1071 than from stdin
1072 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1073 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1074 mp3 files with invalid header information
1075 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1076 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1077 - diffstats
1078
1079 ---------------------------------------
1080 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1081 ---------------------------------------
1082
1083 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1084 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1085 stick to mp3...
1086
1087 - fix several memory leaks
1088 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1089 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1090 rename your old database.
1091 - rework ogg vorbis code
1092 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1093 disabled
1094 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1095 - simplified audio format API
1096 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1097
1098 ------------------------------------
1099 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1100 ------------------------------------
1101
1102 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1103
1104 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1105 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1106 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1107 README and FEATURES for more info.
1108 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1109 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1110 race-free.
1111 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1112 - improved help message for sl
1113 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1114 perfectly ok.
1115 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1116
1117 -----------------------------------------
1118 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1119 -----------------------------------------
1120
1121 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1122 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1123 enhancements went also in.
1124
1125 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1126 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1127 exists, rather than returning errors
1128 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1129 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1130 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1131 no server is running
1132 - si: report also server pid
1133 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1134 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1135 - fix pic_add, hist
1136 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1137 - many small fixes and cleanups
1138
1139 ---------------------------------------
1140 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1141 ---------------------------------------
1142
1143 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1144 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1145 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1146 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1147 compatible in that respect.
1148
1149 Visible changes:
1150
1151 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1152 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1153 always work.
1154 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1155 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1156 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1157 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1158 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1159 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1160 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1161 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1162
1163 -------------------------------------------
1164 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1165 -------------------------------------------
1166
1167 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1168
1169 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1170 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1171 id.
1172 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1173
1174 -----------------------------------------
1175 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1176 -----------------------------------------
1177

1193
1194 -----------------------------------------
1195 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1196 -----------------------------------------
1197
1198 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1199 and stream large audio sets happily)
1200 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1201 streaming software
1202 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1203 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1204 file/config option for dbtool.
1205 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1206 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1207 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1208 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1209 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1210 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1211 show silly logo on startup
1212 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1213 manipulating attributes
1214 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1215 - revised and beautified documentation
1216 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1217 - autoconf

1219 ---------------------------------------------
1220 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1221 ---------------------------------------------
1222
1223 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1224 core code considerably.
1225 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1226 give finer info on afs' status.
1227 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1228 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1229 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1230 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1231 continuously.
1232 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1233 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1234 - codename funnies
1235
