4 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6
7 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
8 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
9 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
10 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
11
12
13 o the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
14 selector)
15
16 o no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
17 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
18 more info (and some examples).
19
20 o update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
21
22 o switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
23
24 o the new ipc subsystem
25
26 o new audio file selector: playlist
27
28 o para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
29 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
30 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
31 change the selector at runtime.
32
33 o X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
34
35 o para_play fixes
36
37
38 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
39 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
40
41 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
42 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
43 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
44 to the new source documentation.
45
46 o autoconf cleanup
47
48 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
49
50 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
51
52 o gui improvements:
53 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
54 - scrollable output window
55 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
56 - fix color of command output.
57
58 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
59 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
60 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

132 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
133 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
134
135 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
136 a lot of small improvements.
137
138 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
139 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
140 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
141 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
142 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
143
144 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
145 of the ortp receiver.
146
147 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
148 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
149 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
150
151 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
152
153 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
154 and reduces code size.

208 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
209
210 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
211
212 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
213 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
214 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
215 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
216 read/write operations are used).
217
218 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
219 certain circumstances.

244 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
245 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
246 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
247
248
249 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
250 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
251 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
252 too early on a loaded network.
253
254 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
255 future time by the --start_time option.
256
257 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
258 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
259 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
260 only the http receiver in this case.
261
262 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
263 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
264
265 o improved ortp timings.
266
267 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
268 gcc < 3.0.
269
270 New files: gcc-compat.h

319 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
320 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
321 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
322 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
323
324 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
325 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
326 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
327 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
328 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
329 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
330
331 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
332 rather than calling find(1). The server option
333 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
334
335 o documentation update
336
337 o man pages
338
339 o header file cleanup
340
341 o para_client code cleanup
342
343 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

387 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
388 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
389 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
390 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
391 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
392 is no longer needed).
393
394 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
395 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
396 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
397 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
398 in parallel.
399
400 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
401 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
402 sender" for more information.
403
404 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
405
406 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
407 http receiver.
408
409 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
410 senders.
411
412 o ogg timing improvements
413
414 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
415
416 o empty stream definitions work again
417
418 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
419
420 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
421
422 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

454 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
455 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
456 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
457
458 o audiod:
459 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
460 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
461 for more information.
462 - fix memory leak
463 - code cleanup
464
465 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
466 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
467
468 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
469
470 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
471 non-standard places
472
473 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
474
475 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
476 new command line option: --announce_time

510 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
511 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
512 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
513
514 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
515 (including none) filters for each supported audio
516 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
517 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
518 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
519 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
520
521 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
522 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
523 from stdin.
524
525 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
526 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
527 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
528
529 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
530 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
531 clients that play the same stream.
532
533 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

554 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
555 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
556 for the mysql database tool.
557
558 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
559 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
560 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
561 resulting binaries)
562 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
563 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
564 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
565 again.
566 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
567 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
568 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
569 information.

607 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
608 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
609 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
610 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
611
612 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
613 o cleanup of the build system
614 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
615 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
616 line utitlity
617 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
618 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
619 more information.
620 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
621 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
622 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
623 Default: "para_client pic"
624 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
625 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
626
627

668 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
669 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
670 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
671 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
672 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
673
674
675 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
676 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
677 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
678 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
679 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
680 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
681 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
682 libvorbisfile.
683 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
684 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
685 o documentation updates
686 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
687 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
688 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
689 playback time rather than streaming time
690 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
691 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
692 o switch from gzip to bzip2
693
694 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c
695 recv.c recv.ggo send.c send.ggo stat.c

737
738 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
739 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
740 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
741 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
742 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
743 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
744
745 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
746 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
747 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
748 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
749 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
750 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
751 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
752 than from stdin
753 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
754 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
755 mp3 files with invalid header information
756 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
757 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
758 o diffstats
759
760 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

788 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
789 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
790 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
791 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
792 stick to mp3...
793
794 o fix several memory leaks
795 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
796 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
797 rename your old database.
798 o rework ogg vorbis code
799 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
800 disabled
801 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
802 o simplified audio format API
803 o para_pob_ogg is gone
804
805 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
806 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
807 Let's slide gently into the new year.
808
809 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
810 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
811 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
812 README and FEATURES for more info.
813 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
814 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
815 race-free.
816 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
817 o improved help message for sl
818 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
819 perfectly ok.
820 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
821
822 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
823 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
824 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
825 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
826 enhancements went also in.
827
828 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
829 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
830 exists, rather than returning errors
831 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
832 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
833 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
834 no server is running
835 o si: report also server pid
836 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
837 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
838 o fix pic_add, hist
839 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
840 o many small fixes and cleanups
841
842 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
843 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
844 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
845 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
846 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
847 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
848 compatible in that respect.
849
850 Visible changes:
851
852 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
853 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
854 always work.
855 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
856 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
857 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
858 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
859 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
860 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
861 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
862 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
863
864
865 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
866 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
867 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
868
869 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
870 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
871 id.
872 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
873
874 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
875 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
876 o gkrellm plugin
877 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
878 with your favorite mail reader.
879 o several small fixes
880
881 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
882 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
883 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
884 o fix skip command
885 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
886 o modular audio format support
887 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
888 o new server option: autoplay
889
890 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
891 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
892 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
893 and stream large audio sets happily)
894 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
895 streaming software
896 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
897 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
898 file/config option for dbtool.
899 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
900 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
901 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
902 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
903 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
904 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
905 show silly logo on startup
906 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
907 manipulating attributes
908 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
909 o revised and beautified documentation
910 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
911 o autoconf
912
913 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
914 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
915 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
916 core code considerably.
917 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
918 give finer info on afs' status.
919 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
920 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
921 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
922 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
923 continuously.
924 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
925 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
926 o codename funnies
927
928 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
929 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
930 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
931 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config
932 o config file for gui and sdl_gui
933 o fix problems with filenames containing funny characters
934 (reported by Thomas Forell)

936 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
937 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
938 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
939 o fix several potential buffer overflows
940 o many small fixes and cleanups
941
942 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
943 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
944 o easy stream_defs syntax
945 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
946 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
947 placement and the top/bottom window design
948 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
949 well as for invalid picture pointers
950 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
951 o many small fixes and cleanups
952
953 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)
954 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

956 o new dbtool command: ca (copy attributes)
957 o count and display number of times the song has been played
958 o new feature: scoring
959 o command line options for sdl_gui
960 o simpler syntax of streams file
961 o decrease network traffic of stat
962 o fix zombie bug
963 o many small fixes and cleanups
964
965 0.0.94 (2003-05-04)
966 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

980 o fix security bug that caused commands to be executed even
981 with unsufficient permissions
982 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
983 o icecast meta data streaming
984 o many small fixes and cleanups
