4 ------------------------------------------
5 current master branch "cascading gradient"
6 ------------------------------------------
7
8 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
9 opus flac aac files.
10 - afs commands propagate error codes to the client.
11 - The check command now also checks the attribute table for
12 inconsistencies.
13 - New -v flag for the version command (print verbose version string)
14 - New option --priority for para_server and para_audiod.

17 --------------------------------------
18 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
19 --------------------------------------

21 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
22
23 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
24 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
25 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
26 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
27 usernames rather than only user IDs.
28 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
29 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
30 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
31 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
32 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
33 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
34 - Web page cleanup.
35 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
36 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
37 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
38 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

64 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
65 ---------------------------------------------
66
67 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
68
69 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
70 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
71 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
72 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
73 for the generated man pages.
74 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
75 serious bugs have been fixed.
76 - new audiod command: version.
77 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
78 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
79 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

84 ----------------------------------------
85 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
86 ----------------------------------------
87
88 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
89 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
90 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
91
92 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
93 clients.
94 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
95 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
96 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
97 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
98 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
99 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
100 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
101 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
102 initial volumes, better error logging.
103 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
104 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
105 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
106 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
107 - Improved user manual.
108 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

113 ------------------------------------------
114 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
115 ------------------------------------------
116
117 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
118 of the build system.
119
120 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
121 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
122 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
123 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
124 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
125 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
126 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
127 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
128 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
129 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
130 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
131 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
132 which further improves build time.
133 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
134 and fixed.

139 ----------------------------------------
140 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
141 ----------------------------------------
142
143 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
144
145 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
146 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
147 - Addblob commands can produce output.
148 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
149 compiled against libgcrypt.
150 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
151 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
152 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
153 path names.
154 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
155 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
156 the various programs of the paraslash package.
157 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
158 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
159 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

163
164 --------------------------------------
165 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
166 --------------------------------------
167
168 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
169 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
170 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
171 and fixes all over the place.
172
173 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
174 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
175 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
176 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
177 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
178 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
179 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
180 on shutdown.
181 - Improved manual pages.
182 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
183 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
184 recompilations on changes.
185 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
186 - Improved downloads web page.
187
188 -----------------------------------------
189 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
190 -----------------------------------------
191 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
192 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
193 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
194
195 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
196 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
197 libsamplerate.
198 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
199 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
200 in the new "releases" branch.
201 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
202 written to the "build" directory.
203 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
204 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
205
206 --------------------------------------
207 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
208 --------------------------------------
209
210 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
211 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
212 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
213 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
214 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
215 ALSA writer.
216
217 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
218 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
219 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
220 removed.
221 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
222 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
223 - Documentation improvements.
224 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
225 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
226 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
227 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
228
229 ------------------------------------------
230 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
231 ------------------------------------------
232
233 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
234 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
235
236 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
237 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
238 removed in the next version.
239 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
240 command in the bottom window.
241 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
242 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
243 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
244 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
245 para_afh.
246 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
247 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
248 being built.
249 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
250
251 -------------------------------------
252 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
253 -------------------------------------
254
255 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
256 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
257
258 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
259 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
260 (corrupt) mp3 files.
261 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
262 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
263 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
264 full tab completion and command line history.
265 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
266 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
267 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
268 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
269 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
270 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
271 delays on slow media.
272 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
273 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
274 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
275 use the DMIX plugin.
276 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
277 - Makefile cleanups.
278 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
279 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
280 given pattern(s).
281
282 --------------------------------------
283 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
284 --------------------------------------
285
286 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
287 are the highlights of this release.
288
289 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
290 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
291 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
292 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
293 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
294 and vice versa.
295 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
296 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
297 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
298 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
299 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
300 - The *.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
301 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
302 gengetopt to build the tarball.
303 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
304 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
305 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
306 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
307 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
308 - vss timeout cleanups.
309 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
310
311 --------------------------------------
312 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
313 --------------------------------------
314
315 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
316 enhancements.
317
318 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
319 platforms through the libao audio library.
320 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
321 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
322 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
323 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
324 runs a parallel make if possible.
325 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
326 - Documentation updates.
327
328 ------------------------------------------
329 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
330 ------------------------------------------
331
332 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
333 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
334
335 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
336 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
337 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
338 FEC group size.
339 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
340 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
341 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
342 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
343 to installing the package.
344 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
345 - Scheduler improvements
346 - Proper exit codes for para_write
347 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
348 other improvements and fixes.
349 - aacdec error message cleanups
350 - simplified color error handling
351
352 --------------------------------------------
353 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
354 --------------------------------------------
355
356 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
357
358 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
359 handler code.
360 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
361 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
362 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
363 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
364 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
365 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
366 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
367
368 ------------------------------------------
369 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
370 ------------------------------------------
371
372 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
373 bug fixes.
374
375 - Support for the speex codec.
376 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
377 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
378 considerably.
379 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
380 para_filter/para_audiod.
381 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
382
383 ----------------------------------------
384 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
385 ----------------------------------------
386
387 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
388 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
389
390 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
391 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
392 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
393 parameters for the DCCP transport.
394 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
395 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
396 and INSTALL documents.
397 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
398 - The new nonblock API.
399 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
400 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
401
402 ------------------------------------------
403 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
404 ------------------------------------------
405
406 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
407 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
408 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
409 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
410
411 - The new buffer tree API.
412 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
413 - UDP robustness fixes.
414 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
415 for the new buffer tree API.
416 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
417 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
418 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
419 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
420 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
421
422 ---------------------------------------
423 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
424 ---------------------------------------
425
426 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
427 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
428 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
429
430 - wma support.
431 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
432 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
433 - build system improvements.
434 - source code documentation updates.
435
436 -------------------------------------
437 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
438 -------------------------------------
439
440 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
441 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
442
443 - Always check return value of malloc().
444 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
445 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
446 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
447 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
448 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
449 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
450 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
451 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
452 - FEC: Timing improvements.
453
454 ----------------------------------------------
455 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
456 ----------------------------------------------
457
458 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
459 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
460 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
461 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
462 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
463
464 - stronger crypto for client authentication
465 - the database code has been moved to a library
466 - improved status item handling
467 - cleanup of the build system
468 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
469 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
470 - mandatory rc4 encryption
471 - major audio format handler cleanups
472 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
473 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
474 album_matches, year_maches, year.
475
476 --------------------------------------------
477 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
478 --------------------------------------------
479
480 Full client support for *BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
481 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
482 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
483 series if no serious problems show up.
484
485 - the new oss writer (supported on *BSD and Linux)
486 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
487 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
488 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
489 with "add -f".
490 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
491 - the new prebuffer filter
492 - improved signal handling
493 - variable fec output buffer size
494 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
495 - --log_color actually works
496 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
497 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
498 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
499 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
500
501 -----------------------------------------
502 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
503 -----------------------------------------
504
505 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
506 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
507 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
508
509 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
510 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
511 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
512 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
513 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
514 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
515 "--loglevel info".
516 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
517 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
518 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
519 - new audiod option: --config-file.
520 - gengetopt cleanups.
521 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
522 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
523 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
524 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
525 modes of operation.
526 - More source code documentation.
527 - vss timing fixes.
528
529 --------------------------------------------
530 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
531 --------------------------------------------
532
533 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
534 amplification filter.
535
536 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
537 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
538 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
539 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
540 - aac meta info support.
541 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
542 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
543 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
544 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
545 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
546 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
547 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
548
549 -----------------------------------------
550 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
551 -----------------------------------------
552
553 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
554
555 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
556 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
557 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
558 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
559 of output.
560 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
561 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
562
563 ---------------------------------------
564 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
565 ---------------------------------------
566
567 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
568 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
569 a good sign.
570
571 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
572 dccp sender.
573 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
574 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
575 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
576 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
577 Gerrit Renker).
578 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
579 - Audiod performance improvements.
580 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
581 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
582 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
583
584 -------------------------------------
585 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
586 -------------------------------------
587
588 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
589
590
591 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
592 for a major release like this.
593
594 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
595 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
596 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
597 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
598
599 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
600 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
601 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
602
603 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
604 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
605 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
606 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
607 - Lyrics support.
608 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
609 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
610 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
611 Solaris (sparc64).
612 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
613 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
614 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
615 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
616 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
617 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
618 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
619 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
620 para_gui is still there.
621 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
622 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
623 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
624 - Improved error subsystem.
625 - The earth-shaking new logo.
626
627 -----------------------------------------
628 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
629 -----------------------------------------
630
631 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
632 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
633
634 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
635 - universal chunk queueing.
636 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
637 to Gerrit Renker).
638 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
639 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
640 codes.
641 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
642 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
643 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
644 compiler characteristics.
645 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
646 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
647
648 --------------------------------------
649 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
650 --------------------------------------
651
652 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
653 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
654 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
655 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
656
657 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
658 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
659 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
660 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
661 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
662 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
663 and AFS_WRITE.
664 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
665 to start only after a few seconds.
666 - fix osx_writer hangs
667 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
668 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
669
670 -----------------------------------------
671 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
672 -----------------------------------------
673
674 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
675
676 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
677 startup rather than for each connection
678 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
679 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
680 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
681 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
682 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
683 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
684 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
685 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
686 correctly
687 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
688 - documentation improvements
689 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
690 - new man pages
691
692 -------------------------------------------
693 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
694 -------------------------------------------
695
696 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
697 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
698 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
699
700 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
701 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
702 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
703 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
704 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
705 - some robustness fixes
706 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
707 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
708 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
709
710 ---------------------------------------
711 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
712 ---------------------------------------
713
714 A bunch of new features and core changes.
715
716 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
717 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
718 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
719 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
720 para_recv and para_filter.
721 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
722 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
723 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
724 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
725 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
726 - update to libortp-0.10.1
727 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
728 - update to autoconf-2.60
729
730 ------------------------------------------
731 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
732 ------------------------------------------
733
734 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
735 features:
736
737
738 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
739 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
740 for this.
741 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
742 - para_play renamed to para_write
743 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
744 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
745 - compress filter speed improvements
746 - update to libortp-0.9.1
747 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
748 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
749 code for the interactive mode was removed).
750 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
751 work, but it gets no more testing.
752 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
753 reduces its size quite a bit.
754 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
755 and --enable-mysql-libs
756
757 ------------------------------------
758 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
759 ------------------------------------
760
761 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
762 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
763 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
764 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
765
766
767 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
768 selector)
769 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
770 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
771 more info (and some examples).
772 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
773 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
774 - the new ipc subsystem
775 - new audio file selector: playlist
776 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
777 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
778 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
779 change the selector at runtime.
780 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
781 - para_play fixes
782
783 --------------------------------------
784 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
785 --------------------------------------
786
787 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
788 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
789 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
790 to the new source documentation.
791
792 - autoconf cleanup
793 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
794 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
795 - gui improvements:
796 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
797 - scrollable output window
798 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
799 - fix color of command output.
800 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
801 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
802 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
803
804 -------------------------------------------
805 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
806 -------------------------------------------
807
808 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
809 a lot of small improvements.
810
811 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
812 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
813 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
814 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
815 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
816 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
817 of the ortp receiver.
818 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
819 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
820 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
821 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
822 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
823 and reduces code size.
824
825 -----------------------------------------
826 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
827 -----------------------------------------
828
829 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
830
831 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
832 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
833 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
834 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
835 read/write operations are used).
836 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
837 certain circumstances.
838
839 -------------------------------------------
840 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
841 -------------------------------------------
842
843 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
844
845
846 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
847 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
848 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
849 too early on a loaded network.
850 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
851 future time by the --start_time option.
852 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
853 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
854 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
855 only the http receiver in this case.
856 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
857 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
858 - improved ortp timings.
859 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
860 gcc < 3.0.
861
862 -------------------------------------------
863 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
864 -------------------------------------------
865
866 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
867 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
868
869 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
870 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
871 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
872 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
873 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
874 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
875 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
876 rather than calling find(1). The server option
877 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
878 - documentation update
879 - man pages
880 - header file cleanup
881 - para_client code cleanup
882 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
883
884 ------------------------------------------
885 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
886 ------------------------------------------
887
888 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
889 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
890 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
891 is no longer needed).
892
893 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
894 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
895 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
896 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
897 in parallel.
898
899 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
900 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
901 sender" for more information.
902 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
903 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
904 http receiver.
905 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
906 senders.
907 - ogg timing improvements
908 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
909 - empty stream definitions work again
910 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
911 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
912
913 ---------------------------------------
914 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
915 ---------------------------------------
916
917 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
918
919 - audiod:
920 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
921 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
922 for more information.
923 - fix memory leak
924 - code cleanup
925 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
926 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
927 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
928 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
929 non-standard places
930 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
931 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
932 new command line option: --announce_time
933
934 -----------------------------------------
935 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
936 -----------------------------------------
937
938 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
939
940 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
941 (including none) filters for each supported audio
942 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
943 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
944 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
945 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
946 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
947 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
948 from stdin.
949 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
950 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
951 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
952 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
953 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
954 clients that play the same stream.
955
956 ------------------------------------------
957 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
958 ------------------------------------------
959
960 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
961 for the mysql database tool.
962
963 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
964 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
965 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
966 resulting binaries)
967 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
968 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
969 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
970 again.
971 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
972 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
973 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
974 information.
975
976 ---------------------------------------
977 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
978 ---------------------------------------
979
980 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
981 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
982
983 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
984 - cleanup of the build system
985 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
986 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
987 line utitlity
988 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
989 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
990 more information.
991 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
992 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
993 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
994 Default: "para_client pic"
995 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
996 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
997
998 ------------------------------------------
999 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
1000 ------------------------------------------
1001
1002 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
1003 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
1004 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
1005
1006
1007 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1008 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1009 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1010 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1011 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1012 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1013 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1014 libvorbisfile.
1015 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1016 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1017 - documentation updates
1018 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1019 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1020 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1021 playback time rather than streaming time
1022 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1023 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1024 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1025
1026 ----------------------------------------
1027 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1028 ----------------------------------------
1029
1030 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1031 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1032 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1033 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1034
1035 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1036 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1037 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1038 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1039 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1040 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1041 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1042 than from stdin
1043 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1044 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1045 mp3 files with invalid header information
1046 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1047 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1048 - diffstats
1049
1050 ---------------------------------------
1051 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1052 ---------------------------------------
1053
1054 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1055 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1056 stick to mp3...
1057
1058 - fix several memory leaks
1059 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1060 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1061 rename your old database.
1062 - rework ogg vorbis code
1063 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1064 disabled
1065 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1066 - simplified audio format API
1067 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1068
1069 ------------------------------------
1070 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1071 ------------------------------------
1072
1073 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1074
1075 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1076 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1077 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1078 README and FEATURES for more info.
1079 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1080 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1081 race-free.
1082 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1083 - improved help message for sl
1084 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1085 perfectly ok.
1086 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1087
1088 -----------------------------------------
1089 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1090 -----------------------------------------
1091
1092 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1093 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1094 enhancements went also in.
1095
1096 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1097 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1098 exists, rather than returning errors
1099 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1100 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1101 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1102 no server is running
1103 - si: report also server pid
1104 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1105 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1106 - fix pic_add, hist
1107 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1108 - many small fixes and cleanups
1109
1110 ---------------------------------------
1111 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1112 ---------------------------------------
1113
1114 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1115 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1116 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1117 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1118 compatible in that respect.
1119
1120 Visible changes:
1121
1122 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1123 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1124 always work.
1125 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1126 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1127 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1128 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1129 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1130 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1131 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1132 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1133
1134 -------------------------------------------
1135 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1136 -------------------------------------------
1137
1138 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1139
1140 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1141 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1142 id.
1143 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1144
1145 -----------------------------------------
1146 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1147 -----------------------------------------
1148

1164
1165 -----------------------------------------
1166 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1167 -----------------------------------------
1168
1169 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1170 and stream large audio sets happily)
1171 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1172 streaming software
1173 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1174 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1175 file/config option for dbtool.
1176 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1177 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1178 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1179 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1180 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1181 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1182 show silly logo on startup
1183 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1184 manipulating attributes
1185 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1186 - revised and beautified documentation

1193
1194 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1195 core code considerably.
1196 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1197 give finer info on afs' status.
1198 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1199 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1200 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1201 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1202 continuously.
1203 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1204 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1205 - codename funnies
1206
