3
4 0.?.? (to be announced) "oriented abstraction"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6
7 o the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
8 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
9 for this.
10
11 o compress filter speed improvements
12
13 o update to libortp-0.9.1
14
15 o update to gengetopt-2.17
16
17
18 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
19 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
20
21 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
22 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
23 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
24 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
25
26
27 o the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
28 selector)
29
30 o no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
31 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
32 more info (and some examples).
33
34 o update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
35
36 o switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
37
38 o the new ipc subsystem
39
40 o new audio file selector: playlist
41
42 o para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
43 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
44 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
45 change the selector at runtime.
46
47 o X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
48
49 o para_play fixes
50
51
52 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
53 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
54
55 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
56 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
57 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
58 to the new source documentation.
59
60 o autoconf cleanup
61
62 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
63
64 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
65
66 o gui improvements:
67 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
68 - scrollable output window
69 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
70 - fix color of command output.
71
72 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
73 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
74 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

146 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
147 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
148
149 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
150 a lot of small improvements.
151
152 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
153 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
154 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
155 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
156 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
157
158 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
159 of the ortp receiver.
160
161 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
162 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
163 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
164
165 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
166
167 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
168 and reduces code size.

222 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
223
224 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
225
226 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
227 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
228 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
229 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
230 read/write operations are used).
231
232 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
233 certain circumstances.

258 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
259 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
260 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
261
262
263 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
264 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
265 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
266 too early on a loaded network.
267
268 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
269 future time by the --start_time option.
270
271 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
272 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
273 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
274 only the http receiver in this case.
275
276 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
277 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
278
279 o improved ortp timings.
280
281 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
282 gcc < 3.0.
283
284 New files: gcc-compat.h

333 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
334 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
335 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
336 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
337
338 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
339 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
340 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
341 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
342 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
343 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
344
345 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
346 rather than calling find(1). The server option
347 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
348
349 o documentation update
350
351 o man pages
352
353 o header file cleanup
354
355 o para_client code cleanup
356
357 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

401 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
402 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
403 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
404 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
405 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
406 is no longer needed).
407
408 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
409 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
410 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
411 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
412 in parallel.
413
414 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
415 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
416 sender" for more information.
417
418 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
419
420 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
421 http receiver.
422
423 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
424 senders.
425
426 o ogg timing improvements
427
428 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
429
430 o empty stream definitions work again
431
432 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
433
434 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
435
436 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

468 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
469 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
470 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
471
472 o audiod:
473 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
474 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
475 for more information.
476 - fix memory leak
477 - code cleanup
478
479 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
480 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
481
482 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
483
484 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
485 non-standard places
486
487 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
488
489 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
490 new command line option: --announce_time

524 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
525 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
526 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
527
528 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
529 (including none) filters for each supported audio
530 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
531 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
532 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
533 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
534
535 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
536 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
537 from stdin.
538
539 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
540 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
541 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
542
543 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
544 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
545 clients that play the same stream.
546
547 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

567 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
568 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
569 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
570 for the mysql database tool.
571
572 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
573 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
574 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
575 resulting binaries)
576 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
577 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
578 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
579 again.
580 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
581 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
582 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
583 information.

621 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
622 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
623 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
624 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
625
626 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
627 o cleanup of the build system
628 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
629 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
630 line utitlity
631 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
632 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
633 more information.
634 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
635 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
636 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
637 Default: "para_client pic"
638 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
639 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
640
641
642 New files: crypt.c crypt.h

682 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
683 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
684 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
685 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
686 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
687
688
689 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
690 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
691 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
692 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
693 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
694 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
695 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
696 libvorbisfile.
697 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
698 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
699 o documentation updates
700 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
701 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
702 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
703 playback time rather than streaming time
704 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
705 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
706 o switch from gzip to bzip2
707
708 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c
709 recv.c recv.ggo send.c send.ggo stat.c

752 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
753 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
754 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
755 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
756 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
757 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
758
759 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
760 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
761 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
762 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
763 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
764 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
765 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
766 than from stdin
767 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
768 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
769 mp3 files with invalid header information
770 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
771 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
772 o diffstats
773
774 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

802 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
803 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
804 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
805 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
806 stick to mp3...
807
808 o fix several memory leaks
809 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
810 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
811 rename your old database.
812 o rework ogg vorbis code
813 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
814 disabled
815 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
816 o simplified audio format API
817 o para_pob_ogg is gone
818
819 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
820 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
821 Let's slide gently into the new year.
822
823 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
824 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
825 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
826 README and FEATURES for more info.
827 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
828 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
829 race-free.
830 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
831 o improved help message for sl
832 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
833 perfectly ok.
834 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
835
836 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
837 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
838 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
839 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
840 enhancements went also in.
841
842 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
843 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
844 exists, rather than returning errors
845 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
846 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
847 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
848 no server is running
849 o si: report also server pid
850 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
851 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
852 o fix pic_add, hist
853 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
854 o many small fixes and cleanups
855
856 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
857 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
858 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
859 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
860 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
861 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
862 compatible in that respect.
863
864 Visible changes:
865
866 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
867 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
868 always work.
869 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
870 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
871 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
872 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
873 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
874 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
875 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
876 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
877
878
879 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
880 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
881 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
882
883 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
884 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
885 id.
886 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
887
888 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
889 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
890 o gkrellm plugin
891 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
892 with your favorite mail reader.
893 o several small fixes
894
895 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
896 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
897 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
898 o fix skip command
899 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
900 o modular audio format support
901 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
902 o new server option: autoplay
903
904 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
905 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
906 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
907 and stream large audio sets happily)
908 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
909 streaming software
910 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
911 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
912 file/config option for dbtool.
913 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
914 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
915 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
916 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
917 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
918 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
919 show silly logo on startup
920 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
921 manipulating attributes
922 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
923 o revised and beautified documentation
924 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
925 o autoconf
926
927 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
928 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
929 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
930 core code considerably.
931 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
932 give finer info on afs' status.
933 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
934 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
935 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
936 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
937 continuously.
938 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
939 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
940 o codename funnies
941
942 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
943 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
944 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
945 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config
946 o config file for gui and sdl_gui
947 o fix problems with filenames containing funny characters
948 (reported by Thomas Forell)

950 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
951 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
952 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
953 o fix several potential buffer overflows
954 o many small fixes and cleanups
955
956 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
957 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
958 o easy stream_defs syntax
959 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
960 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
961 placement and the top/bottom window design
962 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
963 well as for invalid picture pointers
964 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
965 o many small fixes and cleanups
966
967 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)

973 o command line options for sdl_gui
974 o simpler syntax of streams file
975 o decrease network traffic of stat
976 o fix zombie bug

994 o fix security bug that caused commands to be executed even
995 with unsufficient permissions
996 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
997 o icecast meta data streaming
998 o many small fixes and cleanups
