4 --------------------------------------------
5 0.3.1 (to be announced) "liquid interaction"
6 --------------------------------------------
7
8 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the dccp sender.
9 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
10 - Access control for the dccp sender.
11 - Update to gengetopt-2.22
12 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
13 - fix some fd and memory leaks.

15 -------------------------------------
16 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
17 -------------------------------------
18
19 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
20
21
22 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
23 for a major release like this.
24
25 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
26 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
27 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
28 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
29
30 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
31 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
32 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
33
34 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
35 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
36 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
37 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
38 - Lyrics support.
39 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
40 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
41 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
42 Solaris (sparc64).
43 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
44 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
45 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
46 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
47 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
48 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
49 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
50 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
51 para_gui is still there.
52 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
53 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
54 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
55 - Improved error subsystem.
56 - The earth-shaking new logo.
57
58 -----------------------------------------
59 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
60 -----------------------------------------
61
62 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
63 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
64
65 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
66 - universal chunk queueing.
67 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
68 to Gerrit Renker).
69 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
70 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
71 codes.
72 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
73 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
74 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
75 compiler characteristics.
76 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
77 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
78
79 --------------------------------------
80 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
81 --------------------------------------
82
83 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
84 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
85 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
86 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
87
88 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
89 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
90 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
91 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
92 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
93 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
94 and AFS_WRITE.
95 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
96 to start only after a few seconds.
97 - fix osx_writer hangs
98 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
99 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
100
101 -----------------------------------------
102 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
103 -----------------------------------------
104
105 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
106
107 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
108 startup rather than for each connection
109 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
110 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
111 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
112 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
113 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
114 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
115 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
116 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
117 correctly
118 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
119 - documentation improvements
120 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
121 - new man pages
122
123 -------------------------------------------
124 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
125 -------------------------------------------
126
127 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
128 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
129 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
130
131 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
132 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
133 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
134 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
135 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
136 - some robustness fixes
137 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
138 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
139 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
140
141 ---------------------------------------
142 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
143 ---------------------------------------
144
145 A bunch of new features and core changes.
146
147 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
148 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
149 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
150 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
151 para_recv and para_filter.
152 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
153 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
154 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
155 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
156 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
157 - update to libortp-0.10.1
158 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
159 - update to autoconf-2.60
160
161
162 ------------------------------------------
163 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
164 ------------------------------------------
165
166 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
167 features:
168
169
170 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
171 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
172 for this.
173 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
174 - para_play renamed to para_write
175 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
176 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
177 - compress filter speed improvements
178 - update to libortp-0.9.1
179 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
180 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
181 code for the interactive mode was removed).
182 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
183 work, but it gets no more testing.
184 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
185 reduces its size quite a bit.
186 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
187 and --enable-mysql-libs
188
189 ------------------------------------
190 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
191 ------------------------------------
192
193 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
194 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
195 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
196 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
197
198
199 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
200 selector)
201 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
202 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
203 more info (and some examples).
204 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
205 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
206 - the new ipc subsystem
207 - new audio file selector: playlist
208 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
209 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
210 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
211 change the selector at runtime.
212 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
213 - para_play fixes
214
215
216 --------------------------------------
217 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
218 --------------------------------------
219
220 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
221 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
222 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
223 to the new source documentation.
224
225 - autoconf cleanup
226 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
227 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
228 - gui improvements:
229 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
230 - scrollable output window
231 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
232 - fix color of command output.
233 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
234 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
235 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
236
237
238 -------------------------------------------
239 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
240 -------------------------------------------
241
242 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
243 a lot of small improvements.
244
245 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
246 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
247 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
248 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
249 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
250 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
251 of the ortp receiver.
252 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
253 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
254 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
255 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
256 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
257 and reduces code size.
258
259
260 -----------------------------------------
261 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
262 -----------------------------------------
263
264 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
265
266 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
267 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
268 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
269 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
270 read/write operations are used).
271 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
272 certain circumstances.
273
274
275 -------------------------------------------
276 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
277 -------------------------------------------
278
279 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
280
281
282 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
283 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
284 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
285 too early on a loaded network.
286 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
287 future time by the --start_time option.
288 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
289 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
290 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
291 only the http receiver in this case.
292 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
293 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
294 - improved ortp timings.
295 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
296 gcc < 3.0.
297
298
299 -------------------------------------------
300 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
301 -------------------------------------------
302
303 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
304 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
305
306 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
307 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
308 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
309 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
310 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
311 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
312 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
313 rather than calling find(1). The server option
314 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
315 - documentation update
316 - man pages
317 - header file cleanup
318 - para_client code cleanup
319 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
320
321
322 ------------------------------------------
323 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
324 ------------------------------------------
325
326 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
327 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
328 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
329 is no longer needed).
330
331 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
332 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
333 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
334 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
335 in parallel.
336
337 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
338 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
339 sender" for more information.
340 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
341 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
342 http receiver.
343 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
344 senders.
345 - ogg timing improvements
346 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
347 - empty stream definitions work again
348 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
349 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
350
351
352 ---------------------------------------
353 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
354 ---------------------------------------
355
356 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
357
358 - audiod:
359 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
360 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
361 for more information.
362 - fix memory leak
363 - code cleanup
364 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
365 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
366 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
367 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
368 non-standard places
369 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
370 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
371 new command line option: --announce_time
372
373
374 -----------------------------------------
375 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
376 -----------------------------------------
377
378 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
379
380 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
381 (including none) filters for each supported audio
382 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
383 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
384 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
385 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
386 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
387 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
388 from stdin.
389 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
390 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
391 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
392 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
393 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
394 clients that play the same stream.
395
396
397 ------------------------------------------
398 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
399 ------------------------------------------
400
401 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
402 for the mysql database tool.
403
404 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
405 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
406 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
407 resulting binaries)
408 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
409 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
410 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
411 again.
412 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
413 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
414 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
415 information.
416
417
418 ---------------------------------------
419 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
420 ---------------------------------------
421
422 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
423 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
424
425 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
426 - cleanup of the build system
427 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
428 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
429 line utitlity
430 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
431 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
432 more information.
433 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
434 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
435 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
436 Default: "para_client pic"
437 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
438 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
439
440
441
442 ------------------------------------------
443 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
444 ------------------------------------------
445
446 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
447 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
448 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
449
450
451 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
452 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
453 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
454 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
455 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
456 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
457 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
458 libvorbisfile.
459 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
460 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
461 - documentation updates
462 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
463 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
464 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
465 playback time rather than streaming time
466 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
467 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
468 - switch from gzip to bzip2
469
470
471 ----------------------------------------
472 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
473 ----------------------------------------
474
475 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
476 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
477 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
478 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
479
480 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
481 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
482 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
483 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
484 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
485 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
486 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
487 than from stdin
488 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
489 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
490 mp3 files with invalid header information
491 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
492 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
493 - diffstats
494
495
496 ---------------------------------------
497 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
498 ---------------------------------------
499
500 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
501 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
502 stick to mp3...
503
504 - fix several memory leaks
505 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
506 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
507 rename your old database.
508 - rework ogg vorbis code
509 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
510 disabled
511 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
512 - simplified audio format API
513 - para_pob_ogg is gone
514
515 ------------------------------------
516 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
517 ------------------------------------
518
519 Let's slide gently into the new year.
520
521 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
522 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
523 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
524 README and FEATURES for more info.
525 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
526 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
527 race-free.
528 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
529 - improved help message for sl
530 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
531 perfectly ok.
532 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
533
534 -----------------------------------------
535 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
536 -----------------------------------------
537
538 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
539 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
540 enhancements went also in.
541
542 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
543 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
544 exists, rather than returning errors
545 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
546 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
547 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
548 no server is running
549 - si: report also server pid
550 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
551 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
552 - fix pic_add, hist
553 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
554 - many small fixes and cleanups
555
556 ---------------------------------------
557 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
558 ---------------------------------------
559
560 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
561 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
562 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
563 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
564 compatible in that respect.
565
566 Visible changes:
567
568 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
569 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
570 always work.
571 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
572 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
573 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
574 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
575 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
576 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
577 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
578 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
579
580
581 -------------------------------------------
582 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
583 -------------------------------------------
584
585 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
586
587 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
588 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
589 id.
590 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
591
592 -----------------------------------------

616 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
617 and stream large audio sets happily)
618 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
619 streaming software
620 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
621 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
622 file/config option for dbtool.
623 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
624 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
625 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
626 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
627 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
628 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
629 show silly logo on startup
630 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
631 manipulating attributes
632 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
633 - revised and beautified documentation

640
641 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
642 core code considerably.

645 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
646 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
647 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
648 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
649 continuously.
