4 ---------------------------------------
5 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
6 ---------------------------------------
7
8 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
9 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
10 a good sign.
11
12 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
13 dccp sender.
14 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
15 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
16 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
17 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
18 Gerrit Renker).
19 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
20 - Audiod performance improvements.
21 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
22 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
23 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
24
25 -------------------------------------
26 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
27 -------------------------------------
28
29 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
30
31
32 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
33 for a major release like this.
34
35 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
36 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
37 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
38 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
39
40 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
41 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
42 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
43
44 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
45 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
46 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
47 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
48 - Lyrics support.
49 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
50 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
51 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
52 Solaris (sparc64).
53 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
54 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
55 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
56 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
57 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
58 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
59 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
60 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
61 para_gui is still there.
62 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
63 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
64 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
65 - Improved error subsystem.
66 - The earth-shaking new logo.
67
68 -----------------------------------------
69 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
70 -----------------------------------------
71
72 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
73 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
74
75 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
76 - universal chunk queueing.
77 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
78 to Gerrit Renker).
79 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
80 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
81 codes.
82 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
83 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
84 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
85 compiler characteristics.
86 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
87 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
88
89 --------------------------------------
90 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
91 --------------------------------------
92
93 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
94 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
95 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
96 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
97
98 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
99 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
100 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
101 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
102 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
103 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
104 and AFS_WRITE.
105 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
106 to start only after a few seconds.
107 - fix osx_writer hangs
108 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
109 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
110
111 -----------------------------------------
112 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
113 -----------------------------------------
114
115 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
116
117 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
118 startup rather than for each connection
119 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
120 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
121 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
122 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
123 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
124 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
125 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
126 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
127 correctly
128 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
129 - documentation improvements
130 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
131 - new man pages
132
133 -------------------------------------------
134 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
135 -------------------------------------------
136
137 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
138 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
139 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
140
141 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
142 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
143 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
144 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
145 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
146 - some robustness fixes
147 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
148 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
149 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
150
151 ---------------------------------------
152 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
153 ---------------------------------------
154
155 A bunch of new features and core changes.
156
157 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
158 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
159 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
160 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
161 para_recv and para_filter.
162 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
163 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
164 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
165 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
166 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
167 - update to libortp-0.10.1
168 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
169 - update to autoconf-2.60
170
171
172 ------------------------------------------
173 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
174 ------------------------------------------
175
176 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
177 features:
178
179
180 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
181 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
182 for this.
183 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
184 - para_play renamed to para_write
185 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
186 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
187 - compress filter speed improvements
188 - update to libortp-0.9.1
189 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
190 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
191 code for the interactive mode was removed).
192 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
193 work, but it gets no more testing.
194 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
195 reduces its size quite a bit.
196 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
197 and --enable-mysql-libs
198
199 ------------------------------------
200 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
201 ------------------------------------
202
203 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
204 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
205 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
206 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
207
208
209 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
210 selector)
211 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
212 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
213 more info (and some examples).
214 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
215 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
216 - the new ipc subsystem
217 - new audio file selector: playlist
218 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
219 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
220 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
221 change the selector at runtime.
222 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
223 - para_play fixes
224
225
226 --------------------------------------
227 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
228 --------------------------------------
229
230 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
231 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
232 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
233 to the new source documentation.
234
235 - autoconf cleanup
236 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
237 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
238 - gui improvements:
239 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
240 - scrollable output window
241 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
242 - fix color of command output.
243 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
244 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
245 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
246
247
248 -------------------------------------------
249 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
250 -------------------------------------------
251
252 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
253 a lot of small improvements.
254
255 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
256 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
257 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
258 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
259 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
260 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
261 of the ortp receiver.
262 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
263 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
264 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
265 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
266 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
267 and reduces code size.
268
269
270 -----------------------------------------
271 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
272 -----------------------------------------
273
274 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
275
276 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
277 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
278 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
279 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
280 read/write operations are used).
281 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
282 certain circumstances.
283
284
285 -------------------------------------------
286 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
287 -------------------------------------------
288
289 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
290
291
292 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
293 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
294 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
295 too early on a loaded network.
296 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
297 future time by the --start_time option.
298 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
299 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
300 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
301 only the http receiver in this case.
302 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
303 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
304 - improved ortp timings.
305 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
306 gcc < 3.0.
307
308
309 -------------------------------------------
310 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
311 -------------------------------------------
312
313 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
314 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
315
316 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
317 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
318 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
319 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
320 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
321 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
322 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
323 rather than calling find(1). The server option
324 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
325 - documentation update
326 - man pages
327 - header file cleanup
328 - para_client code cleanup
329 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
330
331
332 ------------------------------------------
333 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
334 ------------------------------------------
335
336 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
337 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
338 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
339 is no longer needed).
340
341 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
342 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
343 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
344 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
345 in parallel.
346
347 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
348 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
349 sender" for more information.
350 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
351 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
352 http receiver.
353 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
354 senders.
355 - ogg timing improvements
356 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
357 - empty stream definitions work again
358 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
359 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
360
361
362 ---------------------------------------
363 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
364 ---------------------------------------
365
366 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
367
368 - audiod:
369 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
370 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
371 for more information.
372 - fix memory leak
373 - code cleanup
374 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
375 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
376 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
377 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
378 non-standard places
379 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
380 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
381 new command line option: --announce_time
382
383
384 -----------------------------------------
385 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
386 -----------------------------------------
387
388 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
389
390 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
391 (including none) filters for each supported audio
392 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
393 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
394 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
395 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
396 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
397 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
398 from stdin.
399 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
400 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
401 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
402 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
403 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
404 clients that play the same stream.
405
406
407 ------------------------------------------
408 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
409 ------------------------------------------
410
411 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
412 for the mysql database tool.
413
414 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
415 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
416 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
417 resulting binaries)
418 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
419 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
420 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
421 again.
422 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
423 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
424 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
425 information.
426
427
428 ---------------------------------------
429 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
430 ---------------------------------------
431
432 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
433 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
434
435 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
436 - cleanup of the build system
437 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
438 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
439 line utitlity
440 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
441 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
442 more information.
443 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
444 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
445 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
446 Default: "para_client pic"
447 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
448 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
449
450
451
452 ------------------------------------------
453 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
454 ------------------------------------------
455
456 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
457 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
458 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
459
460
461 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
462 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
463 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
464 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
465 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
466 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
467 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
468 libvorbisfile.
469 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
470 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
471 - documentation updates
472 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
473 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
474 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
475 playback time rather than streaming time
476 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
477 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
478 - switch from gzip to bzip2
479
480
481 ----------------------------------------
482 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
483 ----------------------------------------
484
485 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
486 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
487 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
488 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
489
490 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
491 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
492 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
493 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
494 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
495 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
496 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
497 than from stdin
498 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
499 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
500 mp3 files with invalid header information
501 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
502 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
503 - diffstats
504
505
506 ---------------------------------------
507 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
508 ---------------------------------------
509
510 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
511 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
512 stick to mp3...
513
514 - fix several memory leaks
515 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
516 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
517 rename your old database.
518 - rework ogg vorbis code
519 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
520 disabled
521 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
522 - simplified audio format API
523 - para_pob_ogg is gone
524
525 ------------------------------------
526 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
527 ------------------------------------
528
529 Let's slide gently into the new year.
530
531 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
532 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
533 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
534 README and FEATURES for more info.
535 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
536 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
537 race-free.
538 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
539 - improved help message for sl
540 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
541 perfectly ok.
542 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
543
544 -----------------------------------------
545 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
546 -----------------------------------------
547
548 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
549 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
550 enhancements went also in.
551
552 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
553 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
554 exists, rather than returning errors
555 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
556 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
557 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
558 no server is running
559 - si: report also server pid
560 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
561 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
562 - fix pic_add, hist
563 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
564 - many small fixes and cleanups
565
566 ---------------------------------------
567 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
568 ---------------------------------------
569
570 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
571 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
572 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
573 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
574 compatible in that respect.
575
576 Visible changes:
577
578 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
579 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
580 always work.
581 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
582 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
583 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
584 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
585 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
586 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
587 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
588 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
589
590
591 -------------------------------------------
592 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
593 -------------------------------------------
594
595 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
596
597 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
598 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
599 id.
600 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
601
602 -----------------------------------------

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

655 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
656 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
657 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
658 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
659 continuously.
