3
4 0.?.? (to be announced) "sonic convolution"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6
7 A bunch of new features and core changes.
8
9 o the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
10
11 o Support for m4a files via the new aac filter/ and audio
12 format handler. (requires libfaad)
13
14 o new writer: osxplay (thanks to Gerd Becker)
15
16 o writers are integrated into para_audiod
17
18 o each writer of para_write has its own command line parser,
19 just like para_recv and para_filter.
20
21 o random/playlist selector: improved info strings
22
23 o new audiod commands: tasks, kill
24
25
26 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
27 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
28
29 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
30 features:
31
32
33 o the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
34 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
35 for this.
36
37 o paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
38
39 o para_play renamed to para_write
40
41 o modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
42
43 o new file_writer output plugin for para_write
44
45 o compress filter speed improvements
46
47 o update to libortp-0.9.1
48
49 o update to gengetopt-2.17rc
50
51 o para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
52 code for the interactive mode was removed).
53
54 o gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
55 work, but it gets no more testing.
56
57 o the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
58 reduces its size quite a bit.
59
60 o configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
61 and --enable-mysql-libs
62
63 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
64 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
65
66 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
67 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
68 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
69 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
70
71
72 o the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
73 selector)
74
75 o no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
76 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
77 more info (and some examples).
78
79 o update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
80
81 o switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
82
83 o the new ipc subsystem
84
85 o new audio file selector: playlist
86
87 o para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
88 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
89 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
90 change the selector at runtime.
91
92 o X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
93
94 o para_play fixes
95
96
97 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
98 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
99
100 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
101 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
102 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
103 to the new source documentation.
104
105 o autoconf cleanup
106
107 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
108
109 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
110
111 o gui improvements:
112 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
113 - scrollable output window
114 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
115 - fix color of command output.
116
117 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
118 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
119 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

191 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
192 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
193
194 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
195 a lot of small improvements.
196
197 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
198 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
199 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
200 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
201 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
202
203 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
204 of the ortp receiver.
205
206 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
207 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
208 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
209
210 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
211
212 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
213 and reduces code size.

267 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
268
269 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
270
271 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
272 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
273 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
274 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
275 read/write operations are used).
276
277 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
278 certain circumstances.

303 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
304 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
305 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
306
307
308 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
309 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
310 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
311 too early on a loaded network.
312
313 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
314 future time by the --start_time option.
315
316 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
317 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
318 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
319 only the http receiver in this case.
320
321 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
322 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
323
324 o improved ortp timings.
325
326 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
327 gcc < 3.0.

378 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
379 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
380 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
381 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
382
383 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
384 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
385 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
386 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
387 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
388 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
389
390 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
391 rather than calling find(1). The server option
392 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
393
394 o documentation update
395
396 o man pages
397
398 o header file cleanup
399
400 o para_client code cleanup
401
402 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

446 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
447 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
448 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
449 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
450 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
451 is no longer needed).
452
453 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
454 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
455 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
456 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
457 in parallel.
458
459 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
460 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
461 sender" for more information.
462
463 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
464
465 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
466 http receiver.
467
468 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
469 senders.
470
471 o ogg timing improvements
472
473 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
474
475 o empty stream definitions work again
476
477 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
478
479 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
480
481 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

513 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
514 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
515 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
516
517 o audiod:
518 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
519 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
520 for more information.
521 - fix memory leak
522 - code cleanup
523
524 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
525 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
526
527 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
528
529 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
530 non-standard places
531
532 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
533
534 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
535 new command line option: --announce_time

571 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
572
573 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
574 (including none) filters for each supported audio
575 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
576 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
577 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
578 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
579
580 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
581 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
582 from stdin.
583
584 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
585 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
586 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
587
588 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
589 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
590 clients that play the same stream.
591
592 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

612 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
613 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
614 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
615 for the mysql database tool.
616
617 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
618 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
619 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
620 resulting binaries)
621 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
622 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
623 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
624 again.
625 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
626 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
627 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
628 information.

666 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
667 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
668 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
669 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
670
671 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
672 o cleanup of the build system
673 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
674 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
675 line utitlity
676 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
677 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
678 more information.
679 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
680 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
681 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
682 Default: "para_client pic"
683 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
684 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
685
686
687 New files: crypt.c crypt.h

727 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
728 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
729 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
730 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
731 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
732
733
734 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
735 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
736 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
737 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
738 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
739 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
740 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
741 libvorbisfile.
742 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
743 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
744 o documentation updates
745 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
746 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
747 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
748 playback time rather than streaming time
749 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
750 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
751 o switch from gzip to bzip2

753 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c

797 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
798 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
799 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
800 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
801 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
802 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
803
804 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
805 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
806 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
807 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
808 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
809 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
810 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
811 than from stdin
812 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
813 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
814 mp3 files with invalid header information
815 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
816 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
817 o diffstats
818
819 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

847 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
848 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
849 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
850 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
851 stick to mp3...
852
853 o fix several memory leaks
854 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
855 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
856 rename your old database.
857 o rework ogg vorbis code
858 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
859 disabled
860 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
861 o simplified audio format API
862 o para_pob_ogg is gone
863
864 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
865 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
866 Let's slide gently into the new year.
867
868 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
869 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
870 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
871 README and FEATURES for more info.
872 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
873 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
874 race-free.
875 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
876 o improved help message for sl
877 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
878 perfectly ok.
879 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
880
881 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
882 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
883 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
884 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
885 enhancements went also in.
886
887 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
888 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
889 exists, rather than returning errors
890 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
891 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
892 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
893 no server is running
894 o si: report also server pid
895 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
896 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
897 o fix pic_add, hist
898 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
899 o many small fixes and cleanups
900
901 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
902 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
903 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
904 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
905 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
906 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
907 compatible in that respect.
908
909 Visible changes:
910
911 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
912 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
913 always work.
914 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
915 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
916 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
917 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
918 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
919 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
920 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
921 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
922
923
924 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
925 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
926 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
927
928 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
929 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
930 id.
931 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
932
933 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
934 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
935 o gkrellm plugin
936 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
937 with your favorite mail reader.
938 o several small fixes
939
940 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
941 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
942 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
943 o fix skip command
944 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
945 o modular audio format support
946 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
947 o new server option: autoplay
948
949 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
950 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
951 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
952 and stream large audio sets happily)
953 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
954 streaming software
955 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
956 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
957 file/config option for dbtool.
958 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
959 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
960 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
961 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
962 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
963 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
964 show silly logo on startup
965 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
966 manipulating attributes
967 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
968 o revised and beautified documentation
969 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
970 o autoconf
971
972 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
973 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
974 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
975 core code considerably.
976 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
977 give finer info on afs' status.
978 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
979 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
980 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
981 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
982 continuously.
983 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
984 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
985 o codename funnies
986
987 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
988 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
989 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
990 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config
991 o config file for gui and sdl_gui
992 o fix problems with filenames containing funny characters
993 (reported by Thomas Forell)
994 o improved signal handling for gui, now it rereads conf on SIGHUP
995 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
996 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
997 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
998 o fix several potential buffer overflows
999 o many small fixes and cleanups
1000
1001 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
1002 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1003 o easy stream_defs syntax
1004 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
1005 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
1006 placement and the top/bottom window design
1007 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
1008 well as for invalid picture pointers
1009 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
1010 o many small fixes and cleanups
1011
1012 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)
1013 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1014 o sdl gui runs much faster
1015 o new dbtool command: ca (copy attributes)
1016 o count and display number of times the song has been played
1017 o new feature: scoring
1018 o command line options for sdl_gui
1019 o simpler syntax of streams file
1020 o decrease network traffic of stat
1021 o fix zombie bug
1022 o many small fixes and cleanups
1023
1024 0.0.94 (2003-05-04)
1025 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1028 o internal mp3info
1029 o stat shows also id3 tag info
1030 o new sdl based gui
1031 o log flodding bug fixed
1032 o many small fixes and cleanups
1033
1034 0.0.93 (2003-03-28)
1035 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
1036 o colors for icc_gui
1037 o icc_gui sets volume directly (linux only)
1038 o proper locking that fixes some races
1039 o fix security bug that caused commands to be executed even
1040 with unsufficient permissions
1041 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
1042 o icecast meta data streaming
1043 o many small fixes and cleanups
