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 - Support for the compile-time loglevel feature has been removed.
23 - Cleanup of the wma decoder and bitstream code.
24 - Improved wide-character support and fixes related to signal handling.
25 - para_gui no longer reports 100% playing time at the stream start.
26 - Opus cleanups.

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

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

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

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

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

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

1179
1180 -----------------------------------------
1181 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1182 -----------------------------------------
1183
1184 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1185 and stream large audio sets happily)
1186 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1187 streaming software
1188 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1189 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1190 file/config option for dbtool.
1191 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1192 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1193 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1194 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1195 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1196 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1197 show silly logo on startup
1198 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1199 manipulating attributes
1200 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1206 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1207 ---------------------------------------------
1208
1209 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1210 core code considerably.
1211 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1212 give finer info on afs' status.
1213 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1214 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1215 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1216 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1217 continuously.
1218 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1219 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1220 - codename funnies
