4 -------------------------------------------------
5 0.3.3 (to be announced) "axiomatic perspectivity"
6 -------------------------------------------------
7
8 -----------------------------------------
9 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
10 -----------------------------------------
11 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
12
13 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
14 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
15 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
16 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
17 of output.
18 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
19 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
20
21 ---------------------------------------
22 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
23 ---------------------------------------
24
25 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
26 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
27 a good sign.
28
29 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
30 dccp sender.
31 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
32 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
33 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
34 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
35 Gerrit Renker).
36 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
37 - Audiod performance improvements.
38 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
39 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
40 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
41
42 -------------------------------------
43 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
44 -------------------------------------
45
46 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
47
48
49 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
50 for a major release like this.
51
52 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
53 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
54 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
55 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
56
57 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
58 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
59 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
60
61 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
62 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
63 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
64 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
65 - Lyrics support.
66 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
67 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
68 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
69 Solaris (sparc64).
70 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
71 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
72 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
73 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
74 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
75 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
76 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
77 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
78 para_gui is still there.
79 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
80 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
81 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
82 - Improved error subsystem.
83 - The earth-shaking new logo.
84
85 -----------------------------------------
86 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
87 -----------------------------------------
88
89 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
90 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
91
92 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
93 - universal chunk queueing.
94 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
95 to Gerrit Renker).
96 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
97 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
98 codes.
99 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
100 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
101 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
102 compiler characteristics.
103 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
104 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
105
106 --------------------------------------
107 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
108 --------------------------------------
109
110 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
111 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
112 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
113 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
114
115 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
116 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
117 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
118 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
119 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
120 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
121 and AFS_WRITE.
122 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
123 to start only after a few seconds.
124 - fix osx_writer hangs
125 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
126 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
127
128 -----------------------------------------
129 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
130 -----------------------------------------
131
132 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
133
134 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
135 startup rather than for each connection
136 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
137 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
138 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
139 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
140 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
141 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
142 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
143 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
144 correctly
145 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
146 - documentation improvements
147 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
148 - new man pages
149
150 -------------------------------------------
151 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
152 -------------------------------------------
153
154 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
155 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
156 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
157
158 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
159 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
160 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
161 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
162 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
163 - some robustness fixes
164 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
165 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
166 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
167
168 ---------------------------------------
169 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
170 ---------------------------------------
171
172 A bunch of new features and core changes.
173
174 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
175 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
176 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
177 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
178 para_recv and para_filter.
179 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
180 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
181 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
182 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
183 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
184 - update to libortp-0.10.1
185 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
186 - update to autoconf-2.60
187
188
189 ------------------------------------------
190 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
191 ------------------------------------------
192
193 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
194 features:
195
196
197 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
198 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
199 for this.
200 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
201 - para_play renamed to para_write
202 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
203 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
204 - compress filter speed improvements
205 - update to libortp-0.9.1
206 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
207 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
208 code for the interactive mode was removed).
209 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
210 work, but it gets no more testing.
211 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
212 reduces its size quite a bit.
213 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
214 and --enable-mysql-libs
215
216 ------------------------------------
217 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
218 ------------------------------------
219
220 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
221 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
222 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
223 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
224
225
226 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
227 selector)
228 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
229 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
230 more info (and some examples).
231 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
232 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
233 - the new ipc subsystem
234 - new audio file selector: playlist
235 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
236 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
237 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
238 change the selector at runtime.
239 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
240 - para_play fixes
241
242
243 --------------------------------------
244 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
245 --------------------------------------
246
247 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
248 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
249 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
250 to the new source documentation.
251
252 - autoconf cleanup
253 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
254 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
255 - gui improvements:
256 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
257 - scrollable output window
258 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
259 - fix color of command output.
260 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
261 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
262 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
263
264
265 -------------------------------------------
266 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
267 -------------------------------------------
268
269 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
270 a lot of small improvements.
271
272 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
273 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
274 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
275 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
276 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
277 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
278 of the ortp receiver.
279 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
280 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
281 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
282 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
283 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
284 and reduces code size.
285
286
287 -----------------------------------------
288 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
289 -----------------------------------------
290
291 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
292
293 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
294 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
295 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
296 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
297 read/write operations are used).
298 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
299 certain circumstances.
300
301
302 -------------------------------------------
303 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
304 -------------------------------------------
305
306 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
307
308
309 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
310 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
311 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
312 too early on a loaded network.
313 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
314 future time by the --start_time option.
315 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
316 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
317 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
318 only the http receiver in this case.
319 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
320 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
321 - improved ortp timings.
322 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
323 gcc < 3.0.
324
325
326 -------------------------------------------
327 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
328 -------------------------------------------
329
330 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
331 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
332
333 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
334 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
335 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
336 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
337 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
338 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
339 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
340 rather than calling find(1). The server option
341 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
342 - documentation update
343 - man pages
344 - header file cleanup
345 - para_client code cleanup
346 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
347
348
349 ------------------------------------------
350 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
351 ------------------------------------------
352
353 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
354 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
355 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
356 is no longer needed).
357
358 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
359 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
360 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
361 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
362 in parallel.
363
364 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
365 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
366 sender" for more information.
367 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
368 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
369 http receiver.
370 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
371 senders.
372 - ogg timing improvements
373 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
374 - empty stream definitions work again
375 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
376 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
377
378
379 ---------------------------------------
380 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
381 ---------------------------------------
382
383 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
384
385 - audiod:
386 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
387 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
388 for more information.
389 - fix memory leak
390 - code cleanup
391 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
392 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
393 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
394 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
395 non-standard places
396 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
397 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
398 new command line option: --announce_time
399
400
401 -----------------------------------------
402 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
403 -----------------------------------------
404
405 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
406
407 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
408 (including none) filters for each supported audio
409 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
410 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
411 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
412 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
413 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
414 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
415 from stdin.
416 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
417 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
418 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
419 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
420 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
421 clients that play the same stream.
422
423
424 ------------------------------------------
425 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
426 ------------------------------------------
427
428 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
429 for the mysql database tool.
430
431 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
432 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
433 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
434 resulting binaries)
435 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
436 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
437 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
438 again.
439 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
440 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
441 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
442 information.
443
444
445 ---------------------------------------
446 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
447 ---------------------------------------
448
449 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
450 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
451
452 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
453 - cleanup of the build system
454 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
455 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
456 line utitlity
457 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
458 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
459 more information.
460 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
461 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
462 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
463 Default: "para_client pic"
464 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
465 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
466
467
468
469 ------------------------------------------
470 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
471 ------------------------------------------
472
473 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
474 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
475 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
476
477
478 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
479 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
480 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
481 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
482 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
483 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
484 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
485 libvorbisfile.
486 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
487 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
488 - documentation updates
489 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
490 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
491 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
492 playback time rather than streaming time
493 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
494 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
495 - switch from gzip to bzip2
496
497
498 ----------------------------------------
499 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
500 ----------------------------------------
501
502 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
503 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
504 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
505 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
506
507 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
508 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
509 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
510 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
511 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
512 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
513 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
514 than from stdin
515 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
516 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
517 mp3 files with invalid header information
518 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
519 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
520 - diffstats
521
522
523 ---------------------------------------
524 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
525 ---------------------------------------
526
527 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
528 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
529 stick to mp3...
530
531 - fix several memory leaks
532 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
533 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
534 rename your old database.
535 - rework ogg vorbis code
536 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
537 disabled
538 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
539 - simplified audio format API
540 - para_pob_ogg is gone
541
542 ------------------------------------
543 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
544 ------------------------------------
545
546 Let's slide gently into the new year.
547
548 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
549 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
550 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
551 README and FEATURES for more info.
552 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
553 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
554 race-free.
555 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
556 - improved help message for sl
557 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
558 perfectly ok.
559 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
560
561 -----------------------------------------
562 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
563 -----------------------------------------
564
565 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
566 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
567 enhancements went also in.
568
569 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
570 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
571 exists, rather than returning errors
572 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
573 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
574 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
575 no server is running
576 - si: report also server pid
577 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
578 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
579 - fix pic_add, hist
580 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
581 - many small fixes and cleanups
582
583 ---------------------------------------
584 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
585 ---------------------------------------
586
587 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
588 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
589 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
590 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
591 compatible in that respect.
592
593 Visible changes:
594
595 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
596 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
597 always work.
598 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
599 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
600 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
601 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
602 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
603 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
604 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
605 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
606
607
608 -------------------------------------------
609 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
610 -------------------------------------------
611
612 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
613
614 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
615 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
616 id.
617 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
618
619 -----------------------------------------
620 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"

625 with your favorite mail reader.

638
639 -----------------------------------------
640 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
641 -----------------------------------------
642
643 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
644 and stream large audio sets happily)
645 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
646 streaming software
647 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
648 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
649 file/config option for dbtool.
650 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
651 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
652 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
653 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
654 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
655 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
656 show silly logo on startup
657 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
658 manipulating attributes
659 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
660 - revised and beautified documentation
661 - sample dbtool rewritten in C
662 - autoconf
663

667
668 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
669 core code considerably.
670 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags

672 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
673 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
674 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
675 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
676 continuously.
677 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
678 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
679 - codename funnies
