4 0.?.? (to be announced) "oriented abstraction"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
7 features:
8
9
10 o the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
11 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
12 for this.
13
14 o paraslash compiles under MacOs (thanks to Gerd Becker)
15
16 o para_play renamed to para_write
17
18 o modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
19
20 o new file_writer output plugin for para_write
21
22 o compress filter speed improvements
23
24 o update to libortp-0.9.1
25
26 o update to gengetopt-2.17
27
28 o para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
29 code for the interactive mode was removed).
30
31 o gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
32 work, but it gets no more testing.
33
34 o the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
35 reduces its size from 570 KB to about 410KB.
36
37
38
39 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
40 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
41
42 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
43 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
44 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
45 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
46
47
48 o the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
49 selector)
50
51 o no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
52 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
53 more info (and some examples).
54
55 o update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
56
57 o switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
58
59 o the new ipc subsystem
60
61 o new audio file selector: playlist
62
63 o para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
64 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
65 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
66 change the selector at runtime.
67
68 o X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
69
70 o para_play fixes
71
72
73 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
74 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
75
76 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
77 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
78 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
79 to the new source documentation.
80
81 o autoconf cleanup
82
83 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
84
85 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
86
87 o gui improvements:
88 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
89 - scrollable output window
90 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
91 - fix color of command output.
92
93 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
94 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
95 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

167 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
168 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
169
170 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
171 a lot of small improvements.
172
173 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
174 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
175 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
176 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
177 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
178
179 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
180 of the ortp receiver.
181
182 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
183 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
184 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
185
186 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
187
188 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
189 and reduces code size.

243 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
244
245 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
246
247 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
248 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
249 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
250 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
251 read/write operations are used).
252
253 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
254 certain circumstances.

279 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
280 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
281 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
282
283
284 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
285 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
286 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
287 too early on a loaded network.
288
289 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
290 future time by the --start_time option.
291
292 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
293 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
294 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
295 only the http receiver in this case.
296
297 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
298 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
299
300 o improved ortp timings.
301
302 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
303 gcc < 3.0.

354 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
355 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
356 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
357 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
358
359 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
360 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
361 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
362 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
363 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
364 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
365
366 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
367 rather than calling find(1). The server option
368 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
369
370 o documentation update
371
372 o man pages
373
374 o header file cleanup
375
376 o para_client code cleanup
377
378 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

422 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
423 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
424 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
425 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
426 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
427 is no longer needed).
428
429 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
430 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
431 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
432 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
433 in parallel.
434
435 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
436 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
437 sender" for more information.
438
439 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
440
441 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
442 http receiver.
443
444 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
445 senders.
446
447 o ogg timing improvements
448
449 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
450
451 o empty stream definitions work again
452
453 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
454
455 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
456
457 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

489 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
490 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
491 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
492
493 o audiod:
494 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
495 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
496 for more information.
497 - fix memory leak
498 - code cleanup
499
500 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
501 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
502
503 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
504
505 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
506 non-standard places
507
508 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
509
510 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
511 new command line option: --announce_time

545 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
546 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
547 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
548
549 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
550 (including none) filters for each supported audio
551 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
552 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
553 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
554 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
555
556 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
557 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
558 from stdin.
559
560 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
561 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
562 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
563
564 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
565 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
566 clients that play the same stream.
567
568 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

588 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
589 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
590 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
591 for the mysql database tool.
592
593 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
594 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
595 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
596 resulting binaries)
597 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
598 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
599 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
600 again.
601 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
602 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
603 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
604 information.

642 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
643 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
644 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
645 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
646
647 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
648 o cleanup of the build system
649 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
650 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
651 line utitlity
652 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
653 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
654 more information.
655 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
656 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
657 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
658 Default: "para_client pic"
659 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
660 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
661

703 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
704 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
705 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
706 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
707 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
708
709
710 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
711 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
712 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
713 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
714 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
715 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
716 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
717 libvorbisfile.
718 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
719 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
720 o documentation updates
721 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
722 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
723 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
724 playback time rather than streaming time
725 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
726 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
727 o switch from gzip to bzip2
728
729 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c

772
773 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
774 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
775 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
776 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
777 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
778 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
779
780 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
781 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
782 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
783 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
784 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
785 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
786 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
787 than from stdin
788 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
789 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
790 mp3 files with invalid header information
791 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
792 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
793 o diffstats
794
795 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

823 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
824 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
825 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
826 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
827 stick to mp3...
828
829 o fix several memory leaks
830 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
831 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
832 rename your old database.
833 o rework ogg vorbis code
834 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
835 disabled
836 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
837 o simplified audio format API
838 o para_pob_ogg is gone
839
840 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
841 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
842 Let's slide gently into the new year.
843
844 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
845 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
846 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
847 README and FEATURES for more info.
848 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
849 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
850 race-free.
851 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
852 o improved help message for sl
853 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
854 perfectly ok.
855 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
856
857 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
858 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
859 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
860 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
861 enhancements went also in.
862
863 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
864 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
865 exists, rather than returning errors
866 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
867 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
868 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
869 no server is running
870 o si: report also server pid
871 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
872 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
873 o fix pic_add, hist
874 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
875 o many small fixes and cleanups
876
877 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
878 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
879 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
880 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
881 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
882 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
883 compatible in that respect.
884
885 Visible changes:
886
887 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
888 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
889 always work.
890 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
891 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
892 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
893 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
894 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
895 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
896 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
897 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
898
899
900 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
901 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
902 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
903
904 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
905 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
906 id.
907 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
908
909 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
910 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
911 o gkrellm plugin
912 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
913 with your favorite mail reader.
914 o several small fixes
915
916 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
917 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
918 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
919 o fix skip command
920 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
921 o modular audio format support
922 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
923 o new server option: autoplay
924
925 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
926 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
927 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
928 and stream large audio sets happily)
929 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
930 streaming software
931 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
932 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
933 file/config option for dbtool.
934 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
935 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
936 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
937 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
938 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
939 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
940 show silly logo on startup
941 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
942 manipulating attributes
943 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
944 o revised and beautified documentation
945 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
946 o autoconf
947
948 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
949 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
950 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
951 core code considerably.
952 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
953 give finer info on afs' status.
954 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
955 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
956 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
957 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
958 continuously.
959 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
960 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
961 o codename funnies
962
963 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
964 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
965 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
966 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config

971 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
972 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
973 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
974 o fix several potential buffer overflows
975 o many small fixes and cleanups
976
977 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
978 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
979 o easy stream_defs syntax
980 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
981 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
982 placement and the top/bottom window design
983 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
984 well as for invalid picture pointers
985 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
986 o many small fixes and cleanups
987
988 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)
989 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

992 o count and display number of times the song has been played
993 o new feature: scoring
994 o command line options for sdl_gui
995 o simpler syntax of streams file
996 o decrease network traffic of stat
997 o fix zombie bug
998 o many small fixes and cleanups
999
1000 0.0.94 (2003-05-04)
1001 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1015 o fix security bug that caused commands to be executed even
1016 with unsufficient permissions
1017 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
1018 o icecast meta data streaming
1019 o many small fixes and cleanups
