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.

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

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

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

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

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

171 --------------------------------------
172 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
173 --------------------------------------
174
175 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
176 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
177 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
178 and fixes all over the place.
179
180 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
181 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
182 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
183 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
184 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
185 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
186 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
187 on shutdown.
188 - Improved manual pages.
189 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
190 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
191 recompilations on changes.
192 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
193 - Improved downloads web page.
194
195 -----------------------------------------
196 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
197 -----------------------------------------
198 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
199 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
200 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
201
202 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
203 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
204 libsamplerate.
205 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
206 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
207 in the new "releases" branch.
208 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
209 written to the "build" directory.
210 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
211 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
212
213 --------------------------------------
214 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
215 --------------------------------------
216
217 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
218 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
219 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
220 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
221 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
222 ALSA writer.
223
224 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
225 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
226 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
227 removed.
228 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
229 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
230 - Documentation improvements.
231 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
232 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
233 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
234 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
235
236 ------------------------------------------
237 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
238 ------------------------------------------
239
240 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
241 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
242
243 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
244 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
245 removed in the next version.
246 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
247 command in the bottom window.
248 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
249 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
250 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
251 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
252 para_afh.
253 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
254 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
255 being built.
256 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
257
258 -------------------------------------
259 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
260 -------------------------------------
261
262 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
263 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
264
265 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
266 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
267 (corrupt) mp3 files.
268 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
269 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
270 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
271 full tab completion and command line history.
272 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
273 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
274 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
275 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
276 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
277 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
278 delays on slow media.
279 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
280 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
281 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
282 use the DMIX plugin.
283 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
284 - Makefile cleanups.
285 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
286 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
287 given pattern(s).
288
289 --------------------------------------
290 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
291 --------------------------------------
292
293 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
294 are the highlights of this release.
295
296 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
297 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
298 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
299 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
300 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
301 and vice versa.
302 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
303 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
304 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
305 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
306 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
307 - The *.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
308 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
309 gengetopt to build the tarball.
310 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
311 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
312 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
313 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
314 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
315 - vss timeout cleanups.
316 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
317
318 --------------------------------------
319 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
320 --------------------------------------
321
322 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
323 enhancements.
324
325 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
326 platforms through the libao audio library.
327 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
328 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
329 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
330 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
331 runs a parallel make if possible.
332 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
333 - Documentation updates.
334
335 ------------------------------------------
336 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
337 ------------------------------------------
338
339 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
340 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
341
342 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
343 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
344 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
345 FEC group size.
346 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
347 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
348 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
349 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
350 to installing the package.
351 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
352 - Scheduler improvements
353 - Proper exit codes for para_write
354 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
355 other improvements and fixes.
356 - aacdec error message cleanups
357 - simplified color error handling
358
359 --------------------------------------------
360 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
361 --------------------------------------------
362
363 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
364
365 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
366 handler code.
367 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
368 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
369 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
370 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
371 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
372 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
373 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
374
375 ------------------------------------------
376 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
377 ------------------------------------------
378
379 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
380 bug fixes.
381
382 - Support for the speex codec.
383 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
384 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
385 considerably.
386 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
387 para_filter/para_audiod.
388 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
389
390 ----------------------------------------
391 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
392 ----------------------------------------
393
394 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
395 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
396
397 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
398 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
399 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
400 parameters for the DCCP transport.
401 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
402 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
403 and INSTALL documents.
404 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
405 - The new nonblock API.
406 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
407 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
408
409 ------------------------------------------
410 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
411 ------------------------------------------
412
413 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
414 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
415 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
416 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
417
418 - The new buffer tree API.
419 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
420 - UDP robustness fixes.
421 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
422 for the new buffer tree API.
423 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
424 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
425 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
426 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
427 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
428
429 ---------------------------------------
430 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
431 ---------------------------------------
432
433 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
434 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
435 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
436
437 - wma support.
438 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
439 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
440 - build system improvements.
441 - source code documentation updates.
442
443 -------------------------------------
444 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
445 -------------------------------------
446
447 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
448 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
449
450 - Always check return value of malloc().
451 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
452 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
453 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
454 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
455 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
456 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
457 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
458 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
459 - FEC: Timing improvements.
460
461 ----------------------------------------------
462 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
463 ----------------------------------------------
464
465 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
466 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
467 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
468 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
469 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
470
471 - stronger crypto for client authentication
472 - the database code has been moved to a library
473 - improved status item handling
474 - cleanup of the build system
475 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
476 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
477 - mandatory rc4 encryption
478 - major audio format handler cleanups
479 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
480 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
481 album_matches, year_maches, year.
482
483 --------------------------------------------
484 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
485 --------------------------------------------
486
487 Full client support for *BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
488 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
489 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
490 series if no serious problems show up.
491
492 - the new oss writer (supported on *BSD and Linux)
493 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
494 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
495 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
496 with "add -f".
497 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
498 - the new prebuffer filter
499 - improved signal handling
500 - variable fec output buffer size
501 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
502 - --log_color actually works
503 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
504 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
505 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
506 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
507
508 -----------------------------------------
509 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
510 -----------------------------------------
511
512 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
513 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
514 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
515
516 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
517 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
518 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
519 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
520 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
521 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
522 "--loglevel info".
523 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
524 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
525 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
526 - new audiod option: --config-file.
527 - gengetopt cleanups.
528 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
529 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
530 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
531 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
532 modes of operation.
533 - More source code documentation.
534 - vss timing fixes.
535
536 --------------------------------------------
537 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
538 --------------------------------------------
539
540 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
541 amplification filter.
542
543 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
544 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
545 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
546 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
547 - aac meta info support.
548 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
549 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
550 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
551 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
552 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
553 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
554 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
555
556 -----------------------------------------
557 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
558 -----------------------------------------
559
560 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
561
562 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
563 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
564 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
565 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
566 of output.
567 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
568 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
569
570 ---------------------------------------
571 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
572 ---------------------------------------
573
574 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
575 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
576 a good sign.
577
578 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
579 dccp sender.
580 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
581 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
582 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
583 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
584 Gerrit Renker).
585 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
586 - Audiod performance improvements.
587 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
588 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
589 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
590
591 -------------------------------------
592 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
593 -------------------------------------
594
595 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
596
597
598 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
599 for a major release like this.
600
601 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
602 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
603 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
604 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
605
606 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
607 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
608 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
609
610 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
611 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
612 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
613 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
614 - Lyrics support.
615 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
616 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
617 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
618 Solaris (sparc64).
619 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
620 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
621 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
622 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
623 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
624 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
625 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
626 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
627 para_gui is still there.
628 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
629 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
630 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
631 - Improved error subsystem.
632 - The earth-shaking new logo.
633
634 -----------------------------------------
635 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
636 -----------------------------------------
637
638 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
639 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
640
641 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
642 - universal chunk queueing.
643 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
644 to Gerrit Renker).
645 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
646 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
647 codes.
648 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
649 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
650 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
651 compiler characteristics.
652 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
653 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
654
655 --------------------------------------
656 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
657 --------------------------------------
658
659 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
660 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
661 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
662 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
663
664 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
665 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
666 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
667 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
668 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
669 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
670 and AFS_WRITE.
671 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
672 to start only after a few seconds.
673 - fix osx_writer hangs
674 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
675 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
676
677 -----------------------------------------
678 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
679 -----------------------------------------
680
681 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
682
683 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
684 startup rather than for each connection
685 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
686 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
687 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
688 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
689 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
690 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
691 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
692 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
693 correctly
694 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
695 - documentation improvements
696 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
697 - new man pages
698
699 -------------------------------------------
700 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
701 -------------------------------------------
702
703 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
704 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
705 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
706
707 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
708 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
709 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
710 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
711 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
712 - some robustness fixes
713 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
714 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
715 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
716
717 ---------------------------------------
718 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
719 ---------------------------------------
720
721 A bunch of new features and core changes.
722
723 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
724 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
725 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
726 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
727 para_recv and para_filter.
728 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
729 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
730 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
731 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
732 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
733 - update to libortp-0.10.1
734 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
735 - update to autoconf-2.60
736
737 ------------------------------------------
738 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
739 ------------------------------------------
740
741 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
742 features:
743
744
745 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
746 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
747 for this.
748 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
749 - para_play renamed to para_write
750 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
751 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
752 - compress filter speed improvements
753 - update to libortp-0.9.1
754 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
755 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
756 code for the interactive mode was removed).
757 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
758 work, but it gets no more testing.
759 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
760 reduces its size quite a bit.
761 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
762 and --enable-mysql-libs
763
764 ------------------------------------
765 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
766 ------------------------------------
767
768 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
769 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
770 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
771 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
772
773
774 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
775 selector)
776 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
777 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
778 more info (and some examples).
779 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
780 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
781 - the new ipc subsystem
782 - new audio file selector: playlist
783 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
784 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
785 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
786 change the selector at runtime.
787 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
788 - para_play fixes
789
790 --------------------------------------
791 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
792 --------------------------------------
793
794 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
795 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
796 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
797 to the new source documentation.
798
799 - autoconf cleanup
800 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
801 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
802 - gui improvements:
803 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
804 - scrollable output window
805 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
806 - fix color of command output.
807 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
808 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
809 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
810
811 -------------------------------------------
812 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
813 -------------------------------------------
814
815 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
816 a lot of small improvements.
817
818 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
819 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
820 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
821 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
822 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
823 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
824 of the ortp receiver.
825 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
826 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
827 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
828 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
829 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
830 and reduces code size.
831
832 -----------------------------------------
833 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
834 -----------------------------------------
835
836 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
837
838 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
839 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
840 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
841 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
842 read/write operations are used).
843 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
844 certain circumstances.
845
846 -------------------------------------------
847 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
848 -------------------------------------------
849
850 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
851
852
853 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
854 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
855 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
856 too early on a loaded network.
857 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
858 future time by the --start_time option.
859 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
860 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
861 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
862 only the http receiver in this case.
863 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
864 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
865 - improved ortp timings.
866 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
867 gcc < 3.0.
868
869 -------------------------------------------
870 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
871 -------------------------------------------
872
873 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
874 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
875
876 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
877 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
878 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
879 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
880 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
881 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
882 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
883 rather than calling find(1). The server option
884 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
885 - documentation update
886 - man pages
887 - header file cleanup
888 - para_client code cleanup
889 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
890
891 ------------------------------------------
892 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
893 ------------------------------------------
894
895 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
896 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
897 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
898 is no longer needed).
899
900 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
901 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
902 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
903 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
904 in parallel.
905
906 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
907 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
908 sender" for more information.
909 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
910 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
911 http receiver.
912 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
913 senders.
914 - ogg timing improvements
915 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
916 - empty stream definitions work again
917 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
918 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
919
920 ---------------------------------------
921 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
922 ---------------------------------------
923
924 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
925
926 - audiod:
927 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
928 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
929 for more information.
930 - fix memory leak
931 - code cleanup
932 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
933 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
934 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
935 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
936 non-standard places
937 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
938 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
939 new command line option: --announce_time
940
941 -----------------------------------------
942 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
943 -----------------------------------------
944
945 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
946
947 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
948 (including none) filters for each supported audio
949 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
950 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
951 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
952 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
953 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
954 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
955 from stdin.
956 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
957 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
958 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
959 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
960 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
961 clients that play the same stream.
962
963 ------------------------------------------
964 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
965 ------------------------------------------
966
967 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
968 for the mysql database tool.
969
970 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
971 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
972 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
973 resulting binaries)
974 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
975 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
976 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
977 again.
978 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
979 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
980 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
981 information.
982
983 ---------------------------------------
984 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
985 ---------------------------------------
986
987 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
988 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
989
990 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
991 - cleanup of the build system
992 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
993 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
994 line utitlity
995 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
996 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
997 more information.
998 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
999 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
1000 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
1001 Default: "para_client pic"
1002 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
1003 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
1004
1005 ------------------------------------------
1006 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1007 ------------------------------------------
1008
1009 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1010 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1011 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1012
1013
1014 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1015 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1016 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1017 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1018 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1019 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1020 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1021 libvorbisfile.
1022 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1023 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1024 - documentation updates
1025 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1026 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1027 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1028 playback time rather than streaming time
1029 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1030 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1031 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1032
1033 ----------------------------------------
1034 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1035 ----------------------------------------
1036
1037 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1038 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1039 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1040 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1041
1042 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1043 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1044 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1045 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1046 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1047 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1048 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1049 than from stdin
1050 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1051 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1052 mp3 files with invalid header information

1056
1057 ---------------------------------------
1058 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1059 ---------------------------------------
1060
1061 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1062 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1063 stick to mp3...
1064
1065 - fix several memory leaks
1066 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1067 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1068 rename your old database.
1069 - rework ogg vorbis code
1070 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1071 disabled
1072 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1073 - simplified audio format API
1074 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1075
1076 ------------------------------------
1077 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1078 ------------------------------------
1079
1080 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1081
1082 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1083 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1084 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1085 README and FEATURES for more info.
1086 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1087 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1088 race-free.
1089 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1090 - improved help message for sl
1091 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1092 perfectly ok.
1093 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1094
1095 -----------------------------------------
1096 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1097 -----------------------------------------
1098
1099 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1100 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1101 enhancements went also in.
1102
1103 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1104 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1105 exists, rather than returning errors
1106 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1107 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1108 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1109 no server is running
1110 - si: report also server pid
1111 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1112 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1113 - fix pic_add, hist
1114 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1115 - many small fixes and cleanups
1116
1117 ---------------------------------------
1118 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1119 ---------------------------------------
1120
1121 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1122 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1123 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1124 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1125 compatible in that respect.
1126
1127 Visible changes:
1128
1129 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1130 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1131 always work.
1132 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1133 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1134 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1135 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1136 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1137 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1138 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1139 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1140
1141 -------------------------------------------
1142 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1143 -------------------------------------------
1144
1145 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1146
1147 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1148 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1149 id.
1150 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1151
1152 -----------------------------------------
1153 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1154 -----------------------------------------

1171
1172 -----------------------------------------
1173 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1174 -----------------------------------------
1175
1176 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1177 and stream large audio sets happily)
1178 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1179 streaming software
1180 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1181 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1182 file/config option for dbtool.
1183 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1184 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1185 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1186 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1187 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1188 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1189 show silly logo on startup
1190 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1191 manipulating attributes
1192 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database

1200
1201 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1202 core code considerably.
1203 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags

1205 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1206 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1207 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1208 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1209 continuously.
1210 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1211 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1212 - codename funnies
