4 ----------------------------------------------
5 0.3.2 (to be announced) "probabilistic parity"
6 ----------------------------------------------
7
8 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
9 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
10
11 ---------------------------------------
12 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
13 ---------------------------------------
14
15 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
16 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
17 a good sign.
18
19 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
20 dccp sender.
21 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
22 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
23 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
24 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
25 Gerrit Renker).
26 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
27 - Audiod performance improvements.
28 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
29 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
30 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
31
32 -------------------------------------
33 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
34 -------------------------------------
35
36 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
37
38
39 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
40 for a major release like this.
41
42 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
43 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
44 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
45 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
46
47 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
48 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
49 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
50
51 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
52 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
53 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
54 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
55 - Lyrics support.
56 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
57 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
58 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
59 Solaris (sparc64).
60 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
61 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
62 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
63 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
64 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
65 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
66 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
67 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
68 para_gui is still there.
69 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
70 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
71 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
72 - Improved error subsystem.
73 - The earth-shaking new logo.
74
75 -----------------------------------------
76 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
77 -----------------------------------------
78
79 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
80 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
81
82 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
83 - universal chunk queueing.
84 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
85 to Gerrit Renker).
86 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
87 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
88 codes.
89 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
90 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
91 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
92 compiler characteristics.
93 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
94 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
95
96 --------------------------------------
97 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
98 --------------------------------------
99
100 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
101 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
102 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
103 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
104
105 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
106 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
107 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
108 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
109 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
110 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
111 and AFS_WRITE.
112 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
113 to start only after a few seconds.
114 - fix osx_writer hangs
115 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
116 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
117
118 -----------------------------------------
119 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
120 -----------------------------------------
121
122 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
123
124 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
125 startup rather than for each connection
126 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
127 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
128 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
129 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
130 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
131 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
132 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
133 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
134 correctly
135 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
136 - documentation improvements
137 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
138 - new man pages
139
140 -------------------------------------------
141 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
142 -------------------------------------------
143
144 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
145 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
146 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
147
148 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
149 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
150 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
151 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
152 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
153 - some robustness fixes
154 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
155 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
156 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
157
158 ---------------------------------------
159 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
160 ---------------------------------------
161
162 A bunch of new features and core changes.
163
164 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
165 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
166 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
167 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
168 para_recv and para_filter.
169 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
170 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
171 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
172 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
173 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
174 - update to libortp-0.10.1
175 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
176 - update to autoconf-2.60
177
178
179 ------------------------------------------
180 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
181 ------------------------------------------
182
183 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
184 features:
185
186
187 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
188 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
189 for this.
190 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
191 - para_play renamed to para_write
192 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
193 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
194 - compress filter speed improvements
195 - update to libortp-0.9.1
196 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
197 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
198 code for the interactive mode was removed).
199 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
200 work, but it gets no more testing.
201 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
202 reduces its size quite a bit.
203 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
204 and --enable-mysql-libs
205
206 ------------------------------------
207 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
208 ------------------------------------
209
210 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
211 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
212 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
213 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
214
215
216 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
217 selector)
218 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
219 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
220 more info (and some examples).
221 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
222 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
223 - the new ipc subsystem
224 - new audio file selector: playlist
225 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
226 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
227 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
228 change the selector at runtime.
229 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
230 - para_play fixes
231
232
233 --------------------------------------
234 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
235 --------------------------------------
236
237 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
238 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
239 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
240 to the new source documentation.
241
242 - autoconf cleanup
243 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
244 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
245 - gui improvements:
246 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
247 - scrollable output window
248 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
249 - fix color of command output.
250 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
251 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
252 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
253
254
255 -------------------------------------------
256 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
257 -------------------------------------------
258
259 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
260 a lot of small improvements.
261
262 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
263 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
264 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
265 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
266 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
267 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
268 of the ortp receiver.
269 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
270 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
271 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
272 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
273 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
274 and reduces code size.
275
276
277 -----------------------------------------
278 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
279 -----------------------------------------
280
281 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
282
283 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
284 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
285 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
286 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
287 read/write operations are used).
288 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
289 certain circumstances.
290
291
292 -------------------------------------------
293 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
294 -------------------------------------------
295
296 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
297
298
299 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
300 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
301 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
302 too early on a loaded network.
303 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
304 future time by the --start_time option.
305 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
306 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
307 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
308 only the http receiver in this case.
309 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
310 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
311 - improved ortp timings.
312 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
313 gcc < 3.0.
314
315
316 -------------------------------------------
317 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
318 -------------------------------------------
319
320 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
321 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
322
323 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
324 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
325 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
326 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
327 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
328 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
329 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
330 rather than calling find(1). The server option
331 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
332 - documentation update
333 - man pages
334 - header file cleanup
335 - para_client code cleanup
336 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
337
338
339 ------------------------------------------
340 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
341 ------------------------------------------
342
343 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
344 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
345 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
346 is no longer needed).
347
348 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
349 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
350 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
351 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
352 in parallel.
353
354 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
355 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
356 sender" for more information.
357 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
358 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
359 http receiver.
360 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
361 senders.
362 - ogg timing improvements
363 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
364 - empty stream definitions work again
365 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
366 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
367
368
369 ---------------------------------------
370 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
371 ---------------------------------------
372
373 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
374
375 - audiod:
376 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
377 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
378 for more information.
379 - fix memory leak
380 - code cleanup
381 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
382 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
383 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
384 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
385 non-standard places
386 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
387 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
388 new command line option: --announce_time
389
390
391 -----------------------------------------
392 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
393 -----------------------------------------
394
395 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
396
397 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
398 (including none) filters for each supported audio
399 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
400 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
401 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
402 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
403 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
404 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
405 from stdin.
406 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
407 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
408 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
409 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
410 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
411 clients that play the same stream.
412
413
414 ------------------------------------------
415 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
416 ------------------------------------------
417
418 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
419 for the mysql database tool.
420
421 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
422 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
423 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
424 resulting binaries)
425 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
426 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
427 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
428 again.
429 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
430 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
431 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
432 information.
433
434
435 ---------------------------------------
436 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
437 ---------------------------------------
438
439 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
440 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
441
442 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
443 - cleanup of the build system
444 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
445 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
446 line utitlity
447 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
448 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
449 more information.
450 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
451 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
452 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
453 Default: "para_client pic"
454 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
455 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
456
457
458
459 ------------------------------------------
460 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
461 ------------------------------------------
462
463 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
464 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
465 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
466
467
468 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
469 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
470 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
471 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
472 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
473 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
474 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
475 libvorbisfile.
476 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
477 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
478 - documentation updates
479 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
480 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
481 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
482 playback time rather than streaming time
483 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
484 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
485 - switch from gzip to bzip2
486
487
488 ----------------------------------------
489 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
490 ----------------------------------------
491
492 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
493 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
494 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
495 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
496
497 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
498 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
499 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
500 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
501 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
502 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
503 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
504 than from stdin
505 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
506 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
507 mp3 files with invalid header information
508 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
509 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
510 - diffstats
511
512
513 ---------------------------------------
514 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
515 ---------------------------------------
516
517 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
518 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
519 stick to mp3...
520
521 - fix several memory leaks
522 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
523 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
524 rename your old database.
525 - rework ogg vorbis code
526 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
527 disabled
528 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
529 - simplified audio format API
530 - para_pob_ogg is gone
531
532 ------------------------------------
533 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
534 ------------------------------------
535
536 Let's slide gently into the new year.
537
538 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
539 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
540 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
541 README and FEATURES for more info.
542 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
543 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
544 race-free.
545 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
546 - improved help message for sl
547 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
548 perfectly ok.
549 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
550
551 -----------------------------------------
552 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
553 -----------------------------------------
554
555 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
556 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
557 enhancements went also in.
558
559 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
560 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
561 exists, rather than returning errors
562 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
563 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
564 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
565 no server is running
566 - si: report also server pid
567 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
568 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
569 - fix pic_add, hist
570 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
571 - many small fixes and cleanups
572
573 ---------------------------------------
574 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
575 ---------------------------------------
576
577 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
578 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
579 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
580 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
581 compatible in that respect.
582
583 Visible changes:
584
585 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
586 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
587 always work.
588 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
589 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
590 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
591 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
592 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
593 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
594 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
595 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
596
597
598 -------------------------------------------
599 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
600 -------------------------------------------
601
602 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
603
604 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
605 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
606 id.
607 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
608
609 -----------------------------------------

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

662 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
663 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
664 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
665 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
666 continuously.
