4 -------------------------------------------------
5 0.3.3 (to be announced) "axiomatic perspectivity"
6 -------------------------------------------------
7
8 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
9 amplification filter.
10
11 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
12 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
13 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
14 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
15 - aac meta info support.
16 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
17 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
18 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
19 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
20 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
21 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
22 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
23
24 -----------------------------------------
25 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
26 -----------------------------------------
27
28 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
29
30 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
31 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
32 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
33 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
34 of output.
35 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
36 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
37
38 ---------------------------------------
39 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
40 ---------------------------------------
41
42 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
43 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
44 a good sign.
45
46 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
47 dccp sender.
48 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
49 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
50 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
51 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
52 Gerrit Renker).
53 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
54 - Audiod performance improvements.
55 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
56 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
57 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
58
59 -------------------------------------
60 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
61 -------------------------------------
62
63 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
64
65
66 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
67 for a major release like this.
68
69 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
70 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
71 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
72 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
73
74 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
75 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
76 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
77
78 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
79 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
80 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
81 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
82 - Lyrics support.
83 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
84 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
85 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
86 Solaris (sparc64).
87 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
88 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
89 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
90 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
91 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
92 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
93 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
94 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
95 para_gui is still there.
96 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
97 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
98 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
99 - Improved error subsystem.
100 - The earth-shaking new logo.
101
102 -----------------------------------------
103 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
104 -----------------------------------------
105
106 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
107 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
108
109 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
110 - universal chunk queueing.
111 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
112 to Gerrit Renker).
113 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
114 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
115 codes.
116 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
117 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
118 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
119 compiler characteristics.
120 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
121 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
122
123 --------------------------------------
124 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
125 --------------------------------------
126
127 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
128 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
129 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
130 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
131
132 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
133 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
134 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
135 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
136 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
137 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
138 and AFS_WRITE.
139 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
140 to start only after a few seconds.
141 - fix osx_writer hangs
142 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
143 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
144
145 -----------------------------------------
146 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
147 -----------------------------------------
148
149 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
150
151 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
152 startup rather than for each connection
153 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
154 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
155 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
156 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
157 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
158 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
159 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
160 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
161 correctly
162 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
163 - documentation improvements
164 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
165 - new man pages
166
167 -------------------------------------------
168 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
169 -------------------------------------------
170
171 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
172 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
173 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
174
175 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
176 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
177 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
178 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
179 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
180 - some robustness fixes
181 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
182 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
183 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
184
185 ---------------------------------------
186 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
187 ---------------------------------------
188
189 A bunch of new features and core changes.
190
191 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
192 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
193 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
194 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
195 para_recv and para_filter.
196 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
197 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
198 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
199 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
200 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
201 - update to libortp-0.10.1
202 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
203 - update to autoconf-2.60
204
205
206 ------------------------------------------
207 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
208 ------------------------------------------
209
210 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
211 features:
212
213
214 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
215 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
216 for this.
217 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
218 - para_play renamed to para_write
219 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
220 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
221 - compress filter speed improvements
222 - update to libortp-0.9.1
223 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
224 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
225 code for the interactive mode was removed).
226 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
227 work, but it gets no more testing.
228 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
229 reduces its size quite a bit.
230 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
231 and --enable-mysql-libs
232
233 ------------------------------------
234 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
235 ------------------------------------
236
237 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
238 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
239 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
240 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
241
242
243 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
244 selector)
245 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
246 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
247 more info (and some examples).
248 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
249 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
250 - the new ipc subsystem
251 - new audio file selector: playlist
252 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
253 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
254 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
255 change the selector at runtime.
256 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
257 - para_play fixes
258
259
260 --------------------------------------
261 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
262 --------------------------------------
263
264 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
265 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
266 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
267 to the new source documentation.
268
269 - autoconf cleanup
270 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
271 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
272 - gui improvements:
273 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
274 - scrollable output window
275 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
276 - fix color of command output.
277 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
278 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
279 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
280
281
282 -------------------------------------------
283 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
284 -------------------------------------------
285
286 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
287 a lot of small improvements.
288
289 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
290 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
291 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
292 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
293 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
294 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
295 of the ortp receiver.
296 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
297 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
298 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
299 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
300 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
301 and reduces code size.
302
303
304 -----------------------------------------
305 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
306 -----------------------------------------
307
308 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
309
310 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
311 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
312 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
313 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
314 read/write operations are used).
315 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
316 certain circumstances.
317
318
319 -------------------------------------------
320 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
321 -------------------------------------------
322
323 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
324
325
326 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
327 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
328 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
329 too early on a loaded network.
330 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
331 future time by the --start_time option.
332 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
333 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
334 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
335 only the http receiver in this case.
336 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
337 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
338 - improved ortp timings.
339 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
340 gcc < 3.0.
341
342
343 -------------------------------------------
344 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
345 -------------------------------------------
346
347 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
348 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
349
350 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
351 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
352 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
353 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
354 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
355 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
356 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
357 rather than calling find(1). The server option
358 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
359 - documentation update
360 - man pages
361 - header file cleanup
362 - para_client code cleanup
363 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
364
365
366 ------------------------------------------
367 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
368 ------------------------------------------
369
370 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
371 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
372 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
373 is no longer needed).
374
375 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
376 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
377 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
378 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
379 in parallel.
380
381 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
382 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
383 sender" for more information.
384 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
385 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
386 http receiver.
387 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
388 senders.
389 - ogg timing improvements
390 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
391 - empty stream definitions work again
392 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
393 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
394
395
396 ---------------------------------------
397 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
398 ---------------------------------------
399
400 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
401
402 - audiod:
403 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
404 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
405 for more information.
406 - fix memory leak
407 - code cleanup
408 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
409 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
410 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
411 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
412 non-standard places
413 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
414 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
415 new command line option: --announce_time
416
417
418 -----------------------------------------
419 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
420 -----------------------------------------
421
422 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
423
424 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
425 (including none) filters for each supported audio
426 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
427 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
428 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
429 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
430 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
431 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
432 from stdin.
433 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
434 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
435 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
436 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
437 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
438 clients that play the same stream.
439
440
441 ------------------------------------------
442 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
443 ------------------------------------------
444
445 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
446 for the mysql database tool.
447
448 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
449 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
450 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
451 resulting binaries)
452 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
453 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
454 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
455 again.
456 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
457 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
458 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
459 information.
460
461
462 ---------------------------------------
463 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
464 ---------------------------------------
465
466 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
467 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
468
469 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
470 - cleanup of the build system
471 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
472 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
473 line utitlity
474 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
475 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
476 more information.
477 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
478 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
479 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
480 Default: "para_client pic"
481 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
482 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
483
484
485
486 ------------------------------------------
487 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
488 ------------------------------------------
489
490 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
491 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
492 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
493
494
495 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
496 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
497 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
498 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
499 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
500 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
501 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
502 libvorbisfile.
503 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
504 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
505 - documentation updates
506 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
507 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
508 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
509 playback time rather than streaming time
510 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
511 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
512 - switch from gzip to bzip2
513
514
515 ----------------------------------------
516 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
517 ----------------------------------------
518
519 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
520 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
521 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
522 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
523
524 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
525 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
526 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
527 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
528 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
529 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
530 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
531 than from stdin

533 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
534 mp3 files with invalid header information
535 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
536 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
537 - diffstats
538
539
540 ---------------------------------------
541 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
542 ---------------------------------------
543
544 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
545 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
546 stick to mp3...
547
548 - fix several memory leaks
549 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
550 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
551 rename your old database.
552 - rework ogg vorbis code
553 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
554 disabled
555 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
556 - simplified audio format API
557 - para_pob_ogg is gone
558
559 ------------------------------------
560 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
561 ------------------------------------
562
563 Let's slide gently into the new year.
564
565 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
566 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
567 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
568 README and FEATURES for more info.
569 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
570 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
571 race-free.
572 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
573 - improved help message for sl
574 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
575 perfectly ok.
576 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
577
578 -----------------------------------------
579 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
580 -----------------------------------------
581
582 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
583 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
584 enhancements went also in.
585
586 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
587 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
588 exists, rather than returning errors
589 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
590 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
591 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
592 no server is running
593 - si: report also server pid
594 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
595 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
596 - fix pic_add, hist
597 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
598 - many small fixes and cleanups
599
600 ---------------------------------------
601 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
602 ---------------------------------------
603
604 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
605 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
606 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
607 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
608 compatible in that respect.
609
610 Visible changes:
611
612 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
613 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
614 always work.
615 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
616 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
617 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
618 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
619 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
620 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
621 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
622 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
623
624
625 -------------------------------------------
626 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
627 -------------------------------------------
628
629 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
630
631 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
632 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
633 id.
634 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
635
636 -----------------------------------------
637 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"

655
656 -----------------------------------------
657 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
658 -----------------------------------------
659
660 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
661 and stream large audio sets happily)
662 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
663 streaming software
664 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
665 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
666 file/config option for dbtool.
667 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
668 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
669 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
670 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
671 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
672 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
673 show silly logo on startup
674 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
675 manipulating attributes
676 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
677 - revised and beautified documentation
678 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
679 - autoconf
680

682 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"

684
685 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
686 core code considerably.
687 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags

689 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
690 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
691 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
692 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
693 continuously.
694 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
695 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
696 - codename funnies
