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

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

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