8 The highlight of this release is the new -m flag for para_afh which
9 lets it modify the meta tags of the given audio file(s). This feature
10 is supported for all audio formats. Many small cleanups and bug fixes
11 not mentioned here have accumulated and are also part of the release.
12
13 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
14 opus flac aac files.
15 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
16 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
17 inconsistencies.
18 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
19 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.
20 - New mood methods: image_id and lyrics_id.
21 - The manual and this NEWS file have been converted to markdown.
22 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.

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

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

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

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

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

180 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
181 --------------------------------------
182
183 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
184 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
185 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
186 and fixes all over the place.
187
188 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
189 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
190 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
191 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
192 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
193 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
194 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
195 on shutdown.
196 - Improved manual pages.
197 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
198 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
199 recompilations on changes.
200 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
201 - Improved downloads web page.
202
203 -----------------------------------------
204 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
205 -----------------------------------------
206 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
207 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
208 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
209
210 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
211 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
212 libsamplerate.
213 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
214 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
215 in the new "releases" branch.
216 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
217 written to the "build" directory.
218 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
219 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
220
221 --------------------------------------
222 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
223 --------------------------------------
224
225 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
226 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
227 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
228 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
229 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
230 ALSA writer.
231
232 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
233 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
234 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
235 removed.
236 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
237 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
238 - Documentation improvements.
239 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
240 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
241 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
242 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
243
244 ------------------------------------------
245 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
246 ------------------------------------------
247
248 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
249 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
250
251 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
252 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
253 removed in the next version.
254 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
255 command in the bottom window.
256 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
257 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
258 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
259 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
260 para_afh.
261 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
262 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
263 being built.
264 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
265
266 -------------------------------------
267 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
268 -------------------------------------
269
270 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
271 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
272
273 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
274 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
275 (corrupt) mp3 files.
276 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
277 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
278 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
279 full tab completion and command line history.
280 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
281 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
282 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
283 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
284 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
285 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
286 delays on slow media.
287 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
288 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
289 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
290 use the DMIX plugin.
291 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
292 - Makefile cleanups.
293 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
294 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
295 given pattern(s).
296
297 --------------------------------------
298 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
299 --------------------------------------
300
301 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
302 are the highlights of this release.
303
304 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
305 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
306 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
307 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
308 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
309 and vice versa.
310 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
311 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
312 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
313 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
314 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
315 - The \*.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
316 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
317 gengetopt to build the tarball.
318 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
319 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
320 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
321 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
322 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
323 - vss timeout cleanups.
324 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
325
326 --------------------------------------
327 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
328 --------------------------------------
329
330 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
331 enhancements.
332
333 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
334 platforms through the libao audio library.
335 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
336 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
337 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
338 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
339 runs a parallel make if possible.
340 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
341 - Documentation updates.
342
343 ------------------------------------------
344 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
345 ------------------------------------------
346
347 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
348 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
349
350 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
351 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
352 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
353 FEC group size.
354 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
355 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
356 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
357 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
358 to installing the package.
359 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
360 - Scheduler improvements
361 - Proper exit codes for para_write
362 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
363 other improvements and fixes.
364 - aacdec error message cleanups
365 - simplified color error handling
366
367 --------------------------------------------
368 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
369 --------------------------------------------
370
371 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
372
373 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
374 handler code.
375 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
376 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
377 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
378 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
379 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
380 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
381 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
382
383 ------------------------------------------
384 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
385 ------------------------------------------
386
387 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
388 bug fixes.
389
390 - Support for the speex codec.
391 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
392 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
393 considerably.
394 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
395 para_filter/para_audiod.
396 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
397
398 ----------------------------------------
399 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
400 ----------------------------------------
401
402 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
403 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
404
405 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
406 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
407 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
408 parameters for the DCCP transport.
409 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
410 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
411 and INSTALL documents.
412 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
413 - The new nonblock API.
414 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
415 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
416
417 ------------------------------------------
418 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
419 ------------------------------------------
420
421 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
422 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
423 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
424 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
425
426 - The new buffer tree API.
427 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
428 - UDP robustness fixes.
429 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
430 for the new buffer tree API.
431 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
432 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
433 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
434 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
435 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
436
437 ---------------------------------------
438 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
439 ---------------------------------------
440
441 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
442 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
443 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
444
445 - wma support.
446 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
447 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
448 - build system improvements.
449 - source code documentation updates.
450
451 -------------------------------------
452 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
453 -------------------------------------
454
455 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
456 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
457
458 - Always check return value of malloc().
459 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
460 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
461 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
462 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
463 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
464 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
465 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
466 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
467 - FEC: Timing improvements.
468
469 ----------------------------------------------
470 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
471 ----------------------------------------------
472
473 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
474 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
475 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
476 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
477 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
478
479 - stronger crypto for client authentication
480 - the database code has been moved to a library
481 - improved status item handling
482 - cleanup of the build system
483 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
484 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
485 - mandatory rc4 encryption
486 - major audio format handler cleanups
487 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
488 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
489 album_matches, year_maches, year.
490
491 --------------------------------------------
492 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
493 --------------------------------------------
494
495 Full client support for \*BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
496 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
497 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
498 series if no serious problems show up.
499
500 - the new oss writer (supported on \*BSD and Linux)
501 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
502 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
503 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
504 with "add -f".
505 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
506 - the new prebuffer filter
507 - improved signal handling
508 - variable fec output buffer size
509 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
510 - --log_color actually works
511 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
512 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
513 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
514 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
515
516 -----------------------------------------
517 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
518 -----------------------------------------
519
520 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
521 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
522 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
523
524 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
525 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
526 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
527 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
528 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
529 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
530 "--loglevel info".
531 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
532 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
533 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
534 - new audiod option: --config-file.
535 - gengetopt cleanups.
536 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
537 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
538 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
539 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
540 modes of operation.
541 - More source code documentation.
542 - vss timing fixes.
543
544 --------------------------------------------
545 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
546 --------------------------------------------
547
548 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
549 amplification filter.
550
551 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
552 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
553 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
554 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
555 - aac meta info support.
556 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
557 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
558 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
559 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
560 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
561 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
562 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
563
564 -----------------------------------------
565 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
566 -----------------------------------------
567
568 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
569
570 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
571 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
572 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
573 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
574 of output.
575 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
576 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
577
578 ---------------------------------------
579 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
580 ---------------------------------------
581
582 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
583 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
584 a good sign.
585
586 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
587 dccp sender.
588 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
589 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
590 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
591 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
592 Gerrit Renker).
593 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
594 - Audiod performance improvements.
595 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
596 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
597 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
598
599 -------------------------------------
600 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
601 -------------------------------------
602
603 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
604
605
606 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
607 for a major release like this.
608
609 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
610 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
611 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
612 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
613
614 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
615 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
616 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
617
618 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
619 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
620 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
621 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
622 - Lyrics support.
623 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
624 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
625 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
626 Solaris (sparc64).
627 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
628 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
629 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
630 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
631 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
632 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
633 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
634 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
635 para_gui is still there.
636 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
637 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
638 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
639 - Improved error subsystem.
640 - The earth-shaking new logo.
641
642 -----------------------------------------
643 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
644 -----------------------------------------
645
646 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
647 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
648
649 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
650 - universal chunk queueing.
651 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
652 to Gerrit Renker).
653 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
654 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
655 codes.
656 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
657 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
658 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
659 compiler characteristics.
660 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
661 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
662
663 --------------------------------------
664 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
665 --------------------------------------
666
667 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
668 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
669 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
670 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
671
672 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
673 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
674 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
675 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
676 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
677 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
678 and AFS_WRITE.
679 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
680 to start only after a few seconds.
681 - fix osx_writer hangs
682 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
683 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
684
685 -----------------------------------------
686 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
687 -----------------------------------------
688
689 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
690
691 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
692 startup rather than for each connection
693 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
694 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
695 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
696 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
697 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
698 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
699 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
700 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
701 correctly
702 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
703 - documentation improvements
704 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
705 - new man pages
706
707 -------------------------------------------
708 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
709 -------------------------------------------
710
711 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
712 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
713 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
714
715 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
716 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
717 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
718 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
719 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
720 - some robustness fixes
721 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
722 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
723 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
724
725 ---------------------------------------
726 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
727 ---------------------------------------
728
729 A bunch of new features and core changes.
730
731 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
732 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
733 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
734 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
735 para_recv and para_filter.
736 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
737 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
738 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
739 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
740 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
741 - update to libortp-0.10.1
742 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
743 - update to autoconf-2.60
744
745 ------------------------------------------
746 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
747 ------------------------------------------
748
749 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
750 features:
751
752 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
753 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
754 for this.
755 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
756 - para_play renamed to para_write
757 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
758 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
759 - compress filter speed improvements
760 - update to libortp-0.9.1
761 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
762 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
763 code for the interactive mode was removed).
764 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
765 work, but it gets no more testing.
766 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
767 reduces its size quite a bit.
768 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
769 and --enable-mysql-libs
770
771 ------------------------------------
772 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
773 ------------------------------------
774
775 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
776 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
777 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
778 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
779
780 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
781 selector)
782 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
783 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
784 more info (and some examples).
785 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
786 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
787 - the new ipc subsystem
788 - new audio file selector: playlist
789 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
790 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
791 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
792 change the selector at runtime.
793 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
794 - para_play fixes
795
796 --------------------------------------
797 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
798 --------------------------------------
799
800 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
801 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
802 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
803 to the new source documentation.
804
805 - autoconf cleanup
806 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
807 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
808 - gui improvements:
809 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
810 - scrollable output window
811 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
812 - fix color of command output.
813 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
814 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
815 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
816
817 -------------------------------------------
818 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
819 -------------------------------------------
820
821 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
822 a lot of small improvements.
823
824 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
825 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
826 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
827 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
828 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
829 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
830 of the ortp receiver.
831 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
832 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
833 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
834 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
835 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
836 and reduces code size.
837
838 -----------------------------------------
839 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
840 -----------------------------------------
841
842 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
843
844 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
845 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
846 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
847 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
848 read/write operations are used).
849 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
850 certain circumstances.
851
852 -------------------------------------------
853 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
854 -------------------------------------------
855
856 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
857
858 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
859 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
860 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
861 too early on a loaded network.
862 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
863 future time by the --start_time option.
864 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
865 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
866 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
867 only the http receiver in this case.
868 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
869 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
870 - improved ortp timings.
871 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
872 gcc < 3.0.
873
874 -------------------------------------------
875 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
876 -------------------------------------------
877
878 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
879 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
880
881 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
882 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
883 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
884 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
885 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
886 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
887 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
888 rather than calling find(1). The server option
889 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
890 - documentation update
891 - man pages
892 - header file cleanup
893 - para_client code cleanup
894 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
895
896 ------------------------------------------
897 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
898 ------------------------------------------
899
900 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
901 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
902 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
903 is no longer needed).
904
905 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
906 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
907 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
908 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
909 in parallel.
910
911 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
912 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
913 sender" for more information.
914 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
915 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
916 http receiver.
917 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
918 senders.
919 - ogg timing improvements
920 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
921 - empty stream definitions work again
922 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
923 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
924
925 ---------------------------------------
926 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
927 ---------------------------------------
928
929 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
930
931 - audiod:
932 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
933 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
934 for more information.
935 - fix memory leak
936 - code cleanup
937 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
938 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
939 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
940 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
941 non-standard places
942 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
943 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
944 new command line option: --announce_time
945
946 -----------------------------------------
947 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
948 -----------------------------------------
949
950 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
951
952 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
953 (including none) filters for each supported audio
954 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
955 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
956 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
957 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
958 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
959 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
960 from stdin.
961 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
962 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
963 from [AudioCompress](http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html).
964 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
965 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
966 clients that play the same stream.
967
968 ------------------------------------------
969 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
970 ------------------------------------------
971
972 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
973 for the mysql database tool.
974
975 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
976 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
977 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
978 resulting binaries)
979 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
980 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
981 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
982 again.
983 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
984 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
985 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
986 information.
987
988 ---------------------------------------
989 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
990 ---------------------------------------
991
992 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
993 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
994
995 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
996 - cleanup of the build system
997 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
998 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
999 line utitlity
1000 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
1001 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
1002 more information.
1003 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
1004 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1005 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1006 Default: "para_client pic"
1007 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1008 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1009
1010 ------------------------------------------
1011 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1012 ------------------------------------------
1013
1014 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1015 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1016 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1017
1018 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1019 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1020 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1021 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1022 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1023 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1024 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1025 libvorbisfile.
1026 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1027 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1028 - documentation updates
1029 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1030 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1031 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1032 playback time rather than streaming time
1033 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1034 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1035 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1036
1037 ----------------------------------------
1038 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1039 ----------------------------------------
1040
1041 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1042 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1043 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1044 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1045
1046 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1047 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1048 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1049 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1050 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1051 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1052 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1053 than from stdin
1054 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1055 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1056 mp3 files with invalid header information
1057 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1058 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1059 - diffstats
1060
1061 ---------------------------------------
1062 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1063 ---------------------------------------
1064
1065 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1066 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1067 stick to mp3...
1068
1069 - fix several memory leaks
1070 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1071 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1072 rename your old database.
1073 - rework ogg vorbis code
1074 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1075 disabled
1076 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1077 - simplified audio format API
1078 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1079
1080 ------------------------------------
1081 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1082 ------------------------------------
1083
1084 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1085
1086 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1087 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1088 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1089 README and FEATURES for more info.
1090 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1091 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1092 race-free.
1093 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1094 - improved help message for sl
1095 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1096 perfectly ok.
1097 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1098
1099 -----------------------------------------
1100 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1101 -----------------------------------------
1102
1103 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1104 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1105 enhancements went also in.
1106
1107 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1108 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1109 exists, rather than returning errors
1110 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1111 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1112 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1113 no server is running
1114 - si: report also server pid
1115 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1116 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1117 - fix pic_add, hist
1118 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1119 - many small fixes and cleanups
1120
1121 ---------------------------------------
1122 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1123 ---------------------------------------
1124
1125 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1126 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1127 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1128 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1129 compatible in that respect.
1130
1131 Visible changes:
1132
1133 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1134 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1135 always work.
1136 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1137 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1138 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1139 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1140 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1141 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1142 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1143 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1144
1145 -------------------------------------------
1146 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1147 -------------------------------------------
1148
1149 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1150
1151 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1152 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1153 id.
1154 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1155
1156 -----------------------------------------
1157 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1158 -----------------------------------------
1159

1175
1176 -----------------------------------------
1177 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1178 -----------------------------------------
1179
1180 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1181 and stream large audio sets happily)
1182 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1183 streaming software
1184 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1185 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1186 file/config option for dbtool.
1187 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1188 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1189 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1190 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1191 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1192 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1193 show silly logo on startup
1194 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1195 manipulating attributes
1196 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1197 - revised and beautified documentation
1198 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
1199 - autoconf

1202 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1203 ---------------------------------------------
1204
1205 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1206 core code considerably.
1207 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1208 give finer info on afs' status.
1209 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1210 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1211 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1212 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1213 continuously.
1214 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1215 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1216 - codename funnies
1217
