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
22 --------------------------------------
23 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
24 --------------------------------------
25
26 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
27
28 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
29 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
30 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
31 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
32 usernames rather than only user IDs.
33 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
34 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
35 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
36 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
37 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
38 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
39 - Web page cleanup.
40 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
41 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
42 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
43 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

69 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
70 ---------------------------------------------
71
72 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
73
74 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
75 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
76 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
77 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
78 for the generated man pages.
79 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
80 serious bugs have been fixed.
81 - new audiod command: version.
82 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
83 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
84 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

90 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
91 ----------------------------------------
92
93 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
94 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
95 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
96
97 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
98 clients.
99 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
100 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
101 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
102 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
103 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
104 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
105 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
106 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
107 initial volumes, better error logging.
108 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
109 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
110 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
111 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
112 - Improved user manual.
113 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

118 ------------------------------------------
119 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
120 ------------------------------------------
121
122 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
123 of the build system.
124
125 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
126 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
127 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
128 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
129 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
130 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
131 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
132 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
133 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
134 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
135 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
136 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
137 which further improves build time.
138 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
139 and fixed.

145 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
146 ----------------------------------------
147
148 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
149
150 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
151 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
152 - Addblob commands can produce output.
153 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
154 compiled against libgcrypt.
155 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
156 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
157 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
158 path names.
159 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
160 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
161 the various programs of the paraslash package.
162 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
163 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
164 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

169 --------------------------------------
170 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
171 --------------------------------------
172
173 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
174 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
175 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
176 and fixes all over the place.
177
178 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
179 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
180 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
181 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
182 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
183 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
184 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
185 on shutdown.
186 - Improved manual pages.
187 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
188 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
189 recompilations on changes.
190 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
191 - Improved downloads web page.
192
193 -----------------------------------------
194 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
195 -----------------------------------------
196 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
197 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
198 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
199
200 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
201 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
202 libsamplerate.
203 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
204 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
205 in the new "releases" branch.
206 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
207 written to the "build" directory.
208 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
209 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
210
211 --------------------------------------
212 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
213 --------------------------------------
214
215 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
216 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
217 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
218 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
219 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
220 ALSA writer.
221
222 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
223 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
224 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
225 removed.
226 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
227 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
228 - Documentation improvements.
229 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
230 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
231 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
232 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
233
234 ------------------------------------------
235 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
236 ------------------------------------------
237
238 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
239 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
240
241 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
242 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
243 removed in the next version.
244 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
245 command in the bottom window.
246 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
247 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
248 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
249 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
250 para_afh.
251 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
252 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
253 being built.
254 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
255
256 -------------------------------------
257 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
258 -------------------------------------
259
260 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
261 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
262
263 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
264 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
265 (corrupt) mp3 files.
266 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
267 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
268 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
269 full tab completion and command line history.
270 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
271 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
272 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
273 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
274 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
275 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
276 delays on slow media.
277 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
278 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
279 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
280 use the DMIX plugin.
281 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
282 - Makefile cleanups.
283 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
284 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
285 given pattern(s).
286
287 --------------------------------------
288 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
289 --------------------------------------
290
291 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
292 are the highlights of this release.
293
294 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
295 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
296 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
297 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
298 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
299 and vice versa.
300 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
301 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
302 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
303 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
304 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
305 - The *.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
306 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
307 gengetopt to build the tarball.
308 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
309 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
310 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
311 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
312 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
313 - vss timeout cleanups.
314 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
315
316 --------------------------------------
317 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
318 --------------------------------------
319
320 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
321 enhancements.
322
323 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
324 platforms through the libao audio library.
325 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
326 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
327 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
328 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
329 runs a parallel make if possible.
330 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
331 - Documentation updates.
332
333 ------------------------------------------
334 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
335 ------------------------------------------
336
337 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
338 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
339
340 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
341 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
342 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
343 FEC group size.
344 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
345 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
346 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
347 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
348 to installing the package.
349 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
350 - Scheduler improvements
351 - Proper exit codes for para_write
352 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
353 other improvements and fixes.
354 - aacdec error message cleanups
355 - simplified color error handling
356
357 --------------------------------------------
358 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
359 --------------------------------------------
360
361 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
362
363 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
364 handler code.
365 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
366 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
367 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
368 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
369 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
370 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
371 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
372
373 ------------------------------------------
374 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
375 ------------------------------------------
376
377 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
378 bug fixes.
379
380 - Support for the speex codec.
381 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
382 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
383 considerably.
384 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
385 para_filter/para_audiod.
386 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
387
388 ----------------------------------------
389 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
390 ----------------------------------------
391
392 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
393 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
394
395 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
396 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
397 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
398 parameters for the DCCP transport.
399 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
400 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
401 and INSTALL documents.
402 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
403 - The new nonblock API.
404 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
405 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
406
407 ------------------------------------------
408 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
409 ------------------------------------------
410
411 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
412 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
413 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
414 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
415
416 - The new buffer tree API.
417 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
418 - UDP robustness fixes.
419 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
420 for the new buffer tree API.
421 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
422 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
423 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
424 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
425 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
426
427 ---------------------------------------
428 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
429 ---------------------------------------
430
431 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
432 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
433 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
434
435 - wma support.
436 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
437 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
438 - build system improvements.
439 - source code documentation updates.
440
441 -------------------------------------
442 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
443 -------------------------------------
444
445 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
446 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
447
448 - Always check return value of malloc().
449 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
450 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
451 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
452 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
453 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
454 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
455 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
456 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
457 - FEC: Timing improvements.
458
459 ----------------------------------------------
460 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
461 ----------------------------------------------
462
463 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
464 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
465 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
466 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
467 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
468
469 - stronger crypto for client authentication
470 - the database code has been moved to a library
471 - improved status item handling
472 - cleanup of the build system
473 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
474 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
475 - mandatory rc4 encryption
476 - major audio format handler cleanups
477 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
478 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
479 album_matches, year_maches, year.
480
481 --------------------------------------------
482 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
483 --------------------------------------------
484
485 Full client support for *BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
486 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
487 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
488 series if no serious problems show up.
489
490 - the new oss writer (supported on *BSD and Linux)
491 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
492 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
493 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
494 with "add -f".
495 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
496 - the new prebuffer filter
497 - improved signal handling
498 - variable fec output buffer size
499 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
500 - --log_color actually works
501 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
502 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
503 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
504 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
505
506 -----------------------------------------
507 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
508 -----------------------------------------
509
510 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
511 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
512 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
513
514 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
515 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
516 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
517 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
518 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
519 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
520 "--loglevel info".
521 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
522 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
523 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
524 - new audiod option: --config-file.
525 - gengetopt cleanups.
526 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
527 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
528 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
529 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
530 modes of operation.
531 - More source code documentation.
532 - vss timing fixes.
533
534 --------------------------------------------
535 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
536 --------------------------------------------
537
538 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
539 amplification filter.
540
541 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
542 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
543 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
544 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
545 - aac meta info support.
546 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
547 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
548 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
549 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
550 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
551 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
552 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
553
554 -----------------------------------------
555 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
556 -----------------------------------------
557
558 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
559
560 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
561 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
562 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
563 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
564 of output.
565 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
566 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
567
568 ---------------------------------------
569 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
570 ---------------------------------------
571
572 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
573 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
574 a good sign.
575
576 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
577 dccp sender.
578 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
579 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
580 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
581 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
582 Gerrit Renker).
583 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
584 - Audiod performance improvements.
585 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
586 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
587 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
588
589 -------------------------------------
590 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
591 -------------------------------------
592
593 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
594
595
596 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
597 for a major release like this.
598
599 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
600 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
601 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
602 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
603
604 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
605 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
606 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
607
608 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
609 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
610 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
611 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
612 - Lyrics support.
613 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
614 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
615 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
616 Solaris (sparc64).
617 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
618 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
619 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
620 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
621 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
622 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
623 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
624 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
625 para_gui is still there.
626 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
627 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
628 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
629 - Improved error subsystem.
630 - The earth-shaking new logo.
631
632 -----------------------------------------
633 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
634 -----------------------------------------
635
636 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
637 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
638
639 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
640 - universal chunk queueing.
641 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
642 to Gerrit Renker).
643 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
644 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
645 codes.
646 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
647 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
648 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
649 compiler characteristics.
650 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
651 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
652
653 --------------------------------------
654 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
655 --------------------------------------
656
657 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
658 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
659 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
660 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
661
662 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
663 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
664 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
665 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
666 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
667 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
668 and AFS_WRITE.
669 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
670 to start only after a few seconds.
671 - fix osx_writer hangs
672 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
673 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
674
675 -----------------------------------------
676 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
677 -----------------------------------------
678
679 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
680
681 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
682 startup rather than for each connection
683 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
684 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
685 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
686 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
687 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
688 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
689 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
690 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
691 correctly
692 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
693 - documentation improvements
694 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
695 - new man pages
696
697 -------------------------------------------
698 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
699 -------------------------------------------
700
701 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
702 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
703 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
704
705 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
706 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
707 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
708 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
709 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
710 - some robustness fixes
711 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
712 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
713 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
714
715 ---------------------------------------
716 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
717 ---------------------------------------
718
719 A bunch of new features and core changes.
720
721 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
722 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
723 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
724 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
725 para_recv and para_filter.
726 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
727 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
728 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
729 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
730 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
731 - update to libortp-0.10.1
732 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
733 - update to autoconf-2.60
734
735 ------------------------------------------
736 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
737 ------------------------------------------
738
739 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
740 features:
741
742
743 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
744 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
745 for this.
746 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
747 - para_play renamed to para_write
748 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
749 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
750 - compress filter speed improvements
751 - update to libortp-0.9.1
752 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
753 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
754 code for the interactive mode was removed).
755 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
756 work, but it gets no more testing.
757 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
758 reduces its size quite a bit.
759 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
760 and --enable-mysql-libs
761
762 ------------------------------------
763 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
764 ------------------------------------
765
766 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
767 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
768 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
769 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
770
771
772 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
773 selector)
774 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
775 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
776 more info (and some examples).
777 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
778 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
779 - the new ipc subsystem
780 - new audio file selector: playlist
781 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
782 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
783 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
784 change the selector at runtime.
785 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
786 - para_play fixes
787
788 --------------------------------------
789 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
790 --------------------------------------
791
792 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
793 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
794 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
795 to the new source documentation.
796
797 - autoconf cleanup
798 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
799 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
800 - gui improvements:
801 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
802 - scrollable output window
803 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
804 - fix color of command output.
805 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
806 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
807 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
808
809 -------------------------------------------
810 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
811 -------------------------------------------
812
813 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
814 a lot of small improvements.
815
816 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
817 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
818 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
819 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
820 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
821 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
822 of the ortp receiver.
823 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
824 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
825 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
826 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
827 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
828 and reduces code size.
829
830 -----------------------------------------
831 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
832 -----------------------------------------
833
834 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
835
836 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
837 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
838 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
839 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
840 read/write operations are used).
841 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
842 certain circumstances.
843
844 -------------------------------------------
845 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
846 -------------------------------------------
847
848 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
849
850
851 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
852 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
853 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
854 too early on a loaded network.
855 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
856 future time by the --start_time option.
857 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
858 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
859 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
860 only the http receiver in this case.
861 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
862 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
863 - improved ortp timings.
864 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
865 gcc < 3.0.
866
867 -------------------------------------------
868 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
869 -------------------------------------------
870
871 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
872 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
873
874 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
875 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
876 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
877 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
878 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
879 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
880 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
881 rather than calling find(1). The server option
882 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
883 - documentation update
884 - man pages
885 - header file cleanup
886 - para_client code cleanup
887 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
888
889 ------------------------------------------
890 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
891 ------------------------------------------
892
893 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
894 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
895 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
896 is no longer needed).
897
898 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
899 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
900 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
901 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
902 in parallel.
903
904 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
905 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
906 sender" for more information.
907 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
908 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
909 http receiver.
910 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
911 senders.
912 - ogg timing improvements
913 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
914 - empty stream definitions work again
915 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
916 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
917
918 ---------------------------------------
919 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
920 ---------------------------------------
921
922 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
923
924 - audiod:
925 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
926 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
927 for more information.
928 - fix memory leak
929 - code cleanup
930 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
931 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
932 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
933 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
934 non-standard places
935 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
936 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
937 new command line option: --announce_time
938
939 -----------------------------------------
940 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
941 -----------------------------------------
942
943 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
944
945 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
946 (including none) filters for each supported audio
947 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
948 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
949 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
950 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
951 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
952 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
953 from stdin.
954 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
955 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
956 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
957 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
958 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
959 clients that play the same stream.
960
961 ------------------------------------------
962 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
963 ------------------------------------------
964
965 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
966 for the mysql database tool.
967
968 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
969 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
970 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
971 resulting binaries)
972 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
973 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
974 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
975 again.
976 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
977 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
978 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
979 information.
980
981 ---------------------------------------
982 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
983 ---------------------------------------
984
985 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
986 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
987
988 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
989 - cleanup of the build system
990 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
991 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
992 line utitlity
993 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
994 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
995 more information.
996 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
997 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
998 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
999 Default: "para_client pic"
1000 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1001 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1002
1003 ------------------------------------------
1004 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1005 ------------------------------------------
1006
1007 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1008 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1009 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1010
1011
1012 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1013 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1014 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1015 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1016 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1017 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1018 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1019 libvorbisfile.
1020 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1021 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1022 - documentation updates
1023 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1024 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1025 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1026 playback time rather than streaming time
1027 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1028 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1029 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1030
1031 ----------------------------------------
1032 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1033 ----------------------------------------
1034
1035 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1036 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1037 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1038 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1039
1040 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1041 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at

1043 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1044 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1045 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1046 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1047 than from stdin
1048 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1049 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1050 mp3 files with invalid header information
1051 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1052 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1053 - diffstats
1054
1055 ---------------------------------------
1056 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1057 ---------------------------------------
1058
1059 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1060 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1061 stick to mp3...
1062
1063 - fix several memory leaks
1064 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1065 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1066 rename your old database.
1067 - rework ogg vorbis code
1068 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1069 disabled
1070 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1071 - simplified audio format API
1072 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1073
1074 ------------------------------------
1075 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1076 ------------------------------------
1077
1078 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1079
1080 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1081 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1082 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1083 README and FEATURES for more info.
1084 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1085 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1086 race-free.
1087 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1088 - improved help message for sl
1089 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1090 perfectly ok.
1091 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1092
1093 -----------------------------------------
1094 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1095 -----------------------------------------
1096
1097 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1098 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1099 enhancements went also in.
1100
1101 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1102 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1103 exists, rather than returning errors
1104 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1105 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1106 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1107 no server is running
1108 - si: report also server pid
1109 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1110 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1111 - fix pic_add, hist
1112 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1113 - many small fixes and cleanups
1114
1115 ---------------------------------------
1116 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1117 ---------------------------------------
1118
1119 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1120 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1121 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1122 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1123 compatible in that respect.
1124
1125 Visible changes:
1126
1127 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1128 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1129 always work.
1130 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1131 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1132 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1133 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1134 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1135 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1136 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1137 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1138
1139 -------------------------------------------
1140 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1141 -------------------------------------------
1142
1143 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1144
1145 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1146 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1147 id.
1148 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1149
1150 -----------------------------------------
1151 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1152 -----------------------------------------
1153

1169
1170 -----------------------------------------
1171 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1172 -----------------------------------------
1173
1174 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1175 and stream large audio sets happily)
1176 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1177 streaming software
1178 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1179 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1180 file/config option for dbtool.
1181 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1182 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1183 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1184 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1185 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1186 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1187 show silly logo on startup
1188 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1189 manipulating attributes
1190 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1191 - revised and beautified documentation

1197 ---------------------------------------------
1198
1199 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1200 core code considerably.
1201 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1202 give finer info on afs' status.
1203 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1204 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1205 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1206 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1207 continuously.
1208 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1209 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1210 - codename funnies
1211
