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

539
540 -----------------------------------------
541 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
542 -----------------------------------------
543
544 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
545 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
546 enhancements went also in.
547
548 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
549 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
550 exists, rather than returning errors
551 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
552 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
553 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
554 no server is running
555 - si: report also server pid
556 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
557 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
558 - fix pic_add, hist
559 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
560 - many small fixes and cleanups
561
562 ---------------------------------------
563 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
564 ---------------------------------------
565
566 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
567 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
568 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
569 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
570 compatible in that respect.
571
572 Visible changes:
573
574 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
575 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
576 always work.
577 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
578 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
579 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
580 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
581 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
582 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
583 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
584 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
585
586
587 -------------------------------------------
588 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
589 -------------------------------------------
590
591 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
592
593 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
594 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
595 id.
596 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
597
598 -----------------------------------------

622 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
623 and stream large audio sets happily)
624 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
625 streaming software
626 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
627 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
628 file/config option for dbtool.
629 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
630 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
631 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
632 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
633 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
634 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
635 show silly logo on startup
636 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
637 manipulating attributes
638 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
639 - revised and beautified documentation
640 - sample dbtool rewritten in C

646
647 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
648 core code considerably.

651 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
652 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
653 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
654 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
655 continuously.
