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

540
541 ---------------------------------------
542 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
543 ---------------------------------------
544
545 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
546 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
547 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
548 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
549 compatible in that respect.
550
551 Visible changes:
552
553 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
554 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
555 always work.
556 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
557 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
558 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
559 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
560 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
561 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
562 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
563 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
564
565
566 -------------------------------------------

568 -------------------------------------------
569
570 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
571
572 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
573 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
574 id.
575 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
576

603 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
604 streaming software
605 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
606 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
