8 - para_afh learned to modify meta tags of mp3 wma ogg spx
9 opus flac aac files.
10
11 --------------------------------------
12 0.5.5 (2015-09-20) "magnetic momentum"
13 --------------------------------------
14
15 Many new features and a lot of other improvements.
16
17 - On Linux systems, local sockets are now created in the
18 abstract name space by default. This allows to get rid of
19 the socket specials in /var/paraslash.
20 - The --user-allow option of para_audiod now accepts also
21 usernames rather than only user IDs.
22 - New autoconf macros to avoid duplication in configure.ac.
23 - Status items (as shown by para_gui) are updated correctly
24 when the meta information of the current audio changes.
25 - para_server and para_audiod no longer refuse to start in
26 the background if no log file is given. Instead, all log
27 messages go to /dev/null in this case.
28 - Web page cleanup.
29 - New syntax for the -l and -s options of the ls command.
30 These options should now be specified as -l=v rather than
31 -lv, for example. The old syntax still works, but support
32 will be dropped in v0.6.0.

58 0.5.3 (2014-08-01) "symbolic synchronization"
59 ---------------------------------------------
60
61 Not many new features, but lots of fixes and usability improvements.
62
63 - para_gui has been converted to use the paraslash scheduler.
64 - Various alsa-related fixes, mostly for the raspberry pi.
65 - Many scheduler improvements and cleanups.
66 - The test suite has been extended to include sanity checks
67 for the generated man pages.
68 - ao_writer fixes. This writer was in a quite bad shape. Many
69 serious bugs have been fixed.
70 - new audiod command: version.
71 - Minor improvements to the bitstream API.
72 - The cpsi command now prints a meaningful error message if
73 none of the given patterns matched any audio file.

78 ----------------------------------------
79 0.5.2 (2014-04-11) "orthogonal interior"
80 ----------------------------------------
81
82 The new sync filter, the AES_CTR128 stream cipher and the overhauled
83 network code are the highlights of this release. It also includes a
84 fair number of smaller fixes and improvements not mentioned here.
85
86 - The new sync filter synchronizes playback between multiple
87 clients.
88 - Connections between para_server and para_client are now
89 encrypted by means of AES rather than RC4 if both sides
90 support it. RC4 is still available as a fallback. This
91 feature is fully transparent, i.e. no command line options
92 are necessary, and a client linked against openssl can
93 speak with a server linked against libgcrypt and vice versa.
94 - Major cleanup of the networking subsystem.
95 - Improvements to para_fade: the new set mode, multi-channel
96 initial volumes, better error logging.
97 - The man pages of para_audiod, para_filter, para_recv, and
98 para_write contain the relevant options for receivers, filters,
99 writers. This broke in 0.5.0.
100 - ogg/vorbis latency improvements.
101 - Improved user manual.
102 - Minor fixes to avoid clang warnings.

107 ------------------------------------------
108 0.5.1 (2013-12-20) "temporary implication"
109 ------------------------------------------
110
111 Lots of fixes and improvements all over the place, and a major overhaul
112 of the build system.
113
114 - Audiod improvements and fixes.
115 - Buffer tree robustness improvements.
116 - Cleanup of the mood subsystem.
117 - Fixes and cleanups for the flac decoder.
118 - Latency improvements for the ogg/opus decoder.
119 - Crypto support is now optional. On systems without
120 openssl/gcrypt, the build succeeds but para_server,
121 para_audiod, para_client won't be built.
122 - The build system now works for cross-compile setups.
123 - The dependency tree has been flattened, which speeds up
124 builds and avoids to recreate the man pages on every change.
125 - The error code helper has been rewritten from perl to C,
126 which further improves build time.
127 - Many small bugs in the build system have been identified
128 and fixed.

133 ----------------------------------------
134 0.5.0 (2013-08-23) "invertible validity"
135 ----------------------------------------
136
137 Some API-breaking changes, one serious bug fix, and a lot of bike-shedding.
138
139 - The sideband compatibility code has been removed, hence
140 sideband connections (introduced in 0.4.11) are now mandatory.
141 - Addblob commands can produce output.
142 - The stat command no longer sends garbage when para_server was
143 compiled against libgcrypt.
144 - Dependencies for gengetopt files are computed automatically.
145 This eliminates a constant source of build bugs.
146 - The setatt command now accepts file name patterns rather than only
147 path names.
148 - overview.pdf is now based on dia, a simple diagram creation program.
149 The new version is much more detailed and contains descriptions of
150 the various programs of the paraslash package.
151 - The separator of all multi-word options has been changed from
152 underscore to dash. For example --log_color becomes --log-color.
153 - Overhauled web pages and the new logo.

158 --------------------------------------
159 0.4.13 (2013-07-29) "spectral gravity"
160 --------------------------------------
161
162 One more 0.4.x release before the API-breaking changes for 0.5.0 go
163 in. The main features of this release are the ogg/opus audio format,
164 and UTF-8 support, but it includes also tons of other improvements
165 and fixes all over the place.
166
167 - New audio format: ogg/opus.
168 - UTF8 support for para_gui and the mp3 audio format handler.
169 - Scheduler improvements and fixes.
170 - The obsolete gettimeofday() function has been replaced
171 by clock_gettime() on systems which support it.
172 - Speed and usability improvements for para_gui.
173 - para_client now restores the fd flags of stdin and stdout
174 on shutdown.
175 - Improved manual pages.
176 - Consistent version strings for all executables.
177 - Reduced dependencies on generated files result in fewer
178 recompilations on changes.
179 - Performance improvements for the compress filter.
180 - Improved downloads web page.
181
182 -----------------------------------------
183 0.4.12 (2012-12-20) "volatile relativity"
184 -----------------------------------------
185 The new command line player, the resample filter, ALSA support for
186 para_fade, and the improved build system are the highlights of this
187 release which probably marks the end of the 0.4.x series.
188
189 - The afh receiver and the para_play executable.
190 - The resample filter: A sample rate converter based on
191 libsamplerate.
192 - The "versions" directory has been removed from the master
193 branch. The tarballs of the old releases are now available
194 in the new "releases" branch.
195 - Overhaul of the build system: All generated files are now
196 written to the "build" directory.
197 - The modular mixer API and the alsa mixer.
198 - Minor fixes for the osx writer.
199
200 --------------------------------------
201 0.4.11 (2012-07-20) "mutual diversity"
202 --------------------------------------
203
204 The major feature in this release is the new sideband API for
205 client-server communication. This API will be used exclusively starting
206 with 0.5.0, which breaks backward compatibility but allows to get rid
207 of quite some compatibility code. Other noteworthy changes include
208 decoder latency improvements and a long-standing bug fix for the
209 ALSA writer.
210
211 - Sideband connections: If both para_server and para_client
212 support this feature, data is sent as a multiplexed stream.
213 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
214 removed.
215 - Several fixes and latency improvements to various decoders.
216 - The ALSA writer now limits the prebuffer time to 500ms.
217 - Documentation improvements.
218 - Overhaul of the command_util.sh script.
219 - Fixes for some minor problems found by the clang analyzer.
220 - Compiles (almost) without warnings on gcc-3.
221 - Robustness improvements of the buffer tree code.
222
223 ------------------------------------------
224 0.4.10 (2012-03-30) "heterogeneous vacuum"
225 ------------------------------------------
226
227 Nothing earth-shaking in this release, but quite a few usability
228 improvements and the usual mix of cleanups and fixes.
229
230 - The --no_default_filters option of para_filter has been
231 deprecated. It still works but has no effect and will be
232 removed in the next version.
233 - para_gui now prints also the stderr output of the executing
234 command in the bottom window.
235 - Cleanup and consolidation of the various wrappers for
236 write(), writev(), send() and friends.
237 - The obscure error messages on mmap() failures have been
238 replaced by meaningful messages. This affects mainly
239 para_afh.
240 - para_audioc: Cleanups and memory leak fixes.
241 - Test 0004-server no longer fails if para_server is not
242 being built.
243 - New configure options: --with-id3tag-{headers,libs}.
244
245 -------------------------------------
246 0.4.9 (2011-12-06) "hybrid causality"
247 -------------------------------------
248
249 Support for another audio format, interactive mode for para_client
250 and para_audiod and many small improvements/fixes all over the place.
251
252 - Support for flac, the free lossless audio codec.
253 - Fix for an endless loop in the mp3 decoder for certain
254 (corrupt) mp3 files.
255 - When executed without specifying a command, para_client
256 and para_audioc start an interactive shell (requires
257 libreadline being installed). The interactive mode offers
258 full tab completion and command line history.
259 - autogen.sh now detects a distcc setup and adjusts the
260 parameter for the -j option of make accordingly.
261 - Shared memory areas are no longer restricted to 64K. We now
262 detect the maximal size of a shared memory area at runtime.
263 - cleanup of the internal uptime API.
264 - para_server prefaults the mmapped audio file to avoid
265 delays on slow media.
266 - A new test for the test-suite that exercises the
267 communication between para_server and para_audiod.
268 - The alsa writer eats up less CPU cycles when configured to
269 use the DMIX plugin.
270 - Simplified and unified receiver code.
271 - Makefile cleanups.
272 - Commands which print a list of matching audio files now
273 emit a meaningful error message if no audio file matched the
274 given pattern(s).
275
276 --------------------------------------
277 0.4.8 (2011-08-19) "nested assignment"
278 --------------------------------------
279
280 Gcrypt support, the overhauled osx writer and regex format specifiers
281 are the highlights of this release.
282
283 - support for libgcrypt as a drop-in replacement for openssl.
284 Run configure --enable-cryptolib=gcrypt to link against
285 libgcrypt. The two crypto implementations are compatible to
286 each other, i.e. a para_client executable linked against
287 gcrypt can connect to para_server linked against libssl
288 and vice versa.
289 - Rewrite of the osx writer (output plugin for Mac OS).
290 - audiod: The format specifier for receivers, filters and
291 writers is now treated as a regular expression. This allows
292 to replace 5 lines in the config file (one for each audio
293 format) by one single line. See the manual for details.
294 - The *.cmdline.[ch] files are no longer contained in the released
295 tarballs. This reduces the size of the tarballs but requires
296 gengetopt to build the tarball.
297 - Compiles cleanly also with llvm/clang.
298 - Corrupt mp3 files are handled more gracefully.
299 - The alsa writer uses poll fds instead of computing timeouts.
300 - Cleanup of the generic writer API.
301 - sched: Optimized zero timeouts.
302 - vss timeout cleanups.
303 - oggdec fixes and improvements.
304
305 --------------------------------------
306 0.4.7 (2011-06-01) "infinite rollback"
307 --------------------------------------
308
309 The new ao writer, support for ssh RSA keys and a couple of other
310 enhancements.
311
312 - Support for ESD, Pulseaudio, AIX, Solaris, IRIX and other
313 platforms through the libao audio library.
314 - Support for RSA keys generated with ssh-keygen.
315 - configure: improved options for ogg/vorbis/speex.
316 - The git version reported by --version always matches HEAD.
317 - The autogen script detects the number of processors and
318 runs a parallel make if possible.
319 - Major cleanup of the crypto API.
320 - Documentation updates.
321
322 ------------------------------------------
323 0.4.6 (2011-03-31) "deterministic entropy"
324 ------------------------------------------
325
326 Lots of ogg/vorbis improvements, the new test suite, enhancements
327 for para_gui and a fair amount of other bug fixes.
328
329 - For DCCP/OGG streams the audio file header is only sent once
330 at the beginning of the stream rather than periodically
331 every five seconds. This reduces network traffic and the
332 FEC group size.
333 - The vorbis comment header is replaced by an empty dummy header
334 before the header is sent over the network. This also results in
335 less network traffic and smaller FEC groups.
336 - The new "test" make target allows to perform some sanity checks prior
337 to installing the package.
338 - ogg timing fixes and performance improvements
339 - Scheduler improvements
340 - Proper exit codes for para_write
341 - para_gui: New option --theme to select a startup theme. Several
342 other improvements and fixes.
343 - aacdec error message cleanups
344 - simplified color error handling
345
346 --------------------------------------------
347 0.4.5 (2010-12-17) "symmetric randomization"
348 --------------------------------------------
349
350 Bug fixes, internal cleanups and variable-sized FEC slices.
351
352 - Contains a fix for an invalid-free-bug in the ogg audio format
353 handler code.
354 - Switching off the DCCP sender works again.
355 - para_audiod handles crashes of para_server more robustly.
356 - Internal scheduler and writer cleanups.
357 - Reduced latency due to variable-sized FEC slices.
358 - Improved documentation and error diagnostics.
359 - The build of para_server is now optional, allowing the build
360 to succeed in case libosl is not installed.
361
362 ------------------------------------------
363 0.4.4 (2010-08-06) "persistent regularity"
364 ------------------------------------------
365
366 Support for yet another audio format, para_write improvements and
367 bug fixes.
368
369 - Support for the speex codec.
370 - Support for sample formats other than 16 bit little endian.
371 - error2.h is now created by a perl script which speeds up configure
372 considerably.
373 - Fix a bug in the aac decoder which could lead to segfaults in
374 para_filter/para_audiod.
375 - Fixes for autoconf-2.66.
376
377 ----------------------------------------
378 0.4.3 (2010-07-05) "imaginary radiation"
379 ----------------------------------------
380
381 Many improvements for the DCCP and the UDP transport, the new user
382 manual and the usual mix of bug fixes and internal improvements.
383
384 - FEC support for the DCCP sender (Gerrit Renker). The new
385 --dccp_max_slice_size, --dccp_data_slices_per_group and
386 --dccp_slices_per_group options can be used to set the FEC
387 parameters for the DCCP transport.
388 - DNS lookups for UDP targets (Gerrit Renker).
389 - The new user manual replaces the README, README.afs, REQUIREMENTS
390 and INSTALL documents.
391 - Fix an end-of-file detection bug in the oggdec filter.
392 - The new nonblock API.
393 - Both options of the oggdec filter have been removed.
394 - New debug mode for the internal scheduler.
395
396 ------------------------------------------
397 0.4.2 (2010-04-23) "associative expansion"
398 ------------------------------------------
399
400 It's been some time since the last release, but finally here is
401 paraslash-0.4.2. The bulk of the changes comes from the new buffer
402 tree API, but there are changes all over the tree. Mainly performance
403 and usability improvements, but also quite some bug fixes.
404
405 - The new buffer tree API.
406 - DCCP: Support for CCID negotiation (Gerrit Renker).
407 - UDP robustness fixes.
408 - The --bufsize option for mp3dec is gone as it no longer makes sense
409 for the new buffer tree API.
410 - Fix audible buffer underruns for wma streams.
411 - The alsa writer no longer prints meaningless underrun durations.
412 - audiod: Defaults work also for udp streams. If no filter is
413 given for an audio format that is received via upd, fecdec is
414 automatically added as the first filter (along with the decoder).
415
416 ---------------------------------------
417 0.4.1 (2009-12-22) "concurrent horizon"
418 ---------------------------------------
419
420 Support for another audio format, minor feature enhancements and lots of bug
421 fixes. All fixes that have been accumulated in the maint branch (in particular
422 those mentionened in the 0.3.6 release notes) appear in this release as well.
423
424 - wma support.
425 - new afh option: --human to activate human-readable output.
426 - new server/audiod option: --log-timing to print timing information.
427 - build system improvements.
428 - source code documentation updates.
429
430 -------------------------------------
431 0.3.6 (2009-12-07) "cubic continuity"
432 -------------------------------------
433
434 Quite a few bugs have been found and fixed since 0.3.5, so here's
435 another 0.3.x release. No new features.
436
437 - Always check return value of malloc().
438 - ogg vorbis/FEC: Do not write garbage after the audio file header.
439 - exit if root privileges could not be dropped.
440 - FEC: Fix computation of extra slices.
441 - oss: Fix check for empty input buffer.
442 - Avoid buffer underruns due to filter chain output buffer constraints.
443 - server: Fix assignment of afs_pid.
444 - Don't panic if the afs database contains unknown audio formats.
445 - http/dccp: Do not send the audio file header twice.
446 - FEC: Timing improvements.
447
448 ----------------------------------------------
449 0.4.0 (2009-11-10) "simultaneous independence"
450 ----------------------------------------------
451
452 Two significant changes which require the new version number: The
453 improved authentication dialog and the fact that the database code
454 has been moved to a library, libosl. To use the new version, you have
455 to generate new RSA keys, see INSTALL for details. A shell script is
456 provided for conversion of the 0.3 database to the new 0.4 format.
457
458 - stronger crypto for client authentication
459 - the database code has been moved to a library
460 - improved status item handling
461 - cleanup of the build system
462 - The "-V" option now also prints the git version
463 - the new parser-friendly listing mode for the ls and stat commands
464 - mandatory rc4 encryption
465 - major audio format handler cleanups
466 - (id3,...) tags are no longer stored as a combined string in the database
467 - new mood methods: artist_matches, title_matches, comment_matches,
468 album_matches, year_maches, year.
469
470 --------------------------------------------
471 0.3.5 (2009-09-21) "symplectic separability"
472 --------------------------------------------
473
474 Full client support for *BSD Unixes, complete re-write of the ogg
475 vorbis audio format handler, various improvements all over the place
476 and the usual mix of bugfixes. This release marks the end of the 0.3
477 series if no serious problems show up.
478
479 - the new oss writer (supported on *BSD and Linux)
480 - rewrite of the ogg vorbis audio format handler. It's
481 recommended to replace the chunk tables of existing ogg
482 vorbis files in the afs database by re-adding these files
483 with "add -f".
484 - support for netmask subsets (Gerrit Renker)
485 - the new prebuffer filter
486 - improved signal handling
487 - variable fec output buffer size
488 - improved FEC timing fixes audible buffer underruns in UDP mode
489 - --log_color actually works
490 - new ls option: -d (print dates as seconds after the epoch)
491 - update to gengetopt 2.22.2
492 - support for RSA keys of size > 512 bits
493 - new option "mixer_channel" for para_fade
494
495 -----------------------------------------
496 0.3.4 (2009-05-07) "elliptic inheritance"
497 -----------------------------------------
498
499 The new udp sender, forward error correction, colored logs and various
500 other improvements. As the udp sender does not depend on any special
501 libraries, it is built unconditionally.
502
503 - The udp sender replaces the ortp sender. The new code uses forward
504 error correction to protect against packet losses. Many thanks to
505 Gerrit Renker for providing ipv6 support.
506 - The default port for udp streaming now defaults to 8000, like
507 for the http and the dccp senders/receivers.
508 - Loglevels are now specified as symbolic names, e.g.
509 "--loglevel info".
510 - improved ipv4 and ipv6 URI parser (Gerrit Renker).
511 - para_server/para_audiod: Color support for log messages.
512 - new options for mp3dec: --ignore-crc, --bufsize
513 - new audiod option: --config-file.
514 - gengetopt cleanups.
515 - Improved help/man pages: The documentation of para_audiod,
516 para_recv, para_filter and para_write now also contains
517 all options of the available receivers/filters/writers. The
518 man page of para_fade contains a description of the different
519 modes of operation.
520 - More source code documentation.
521 - vss timing fixes.
522
523 --------------------------------------------
524 0.3.3 (2008-12-01) "axiomatic perspectivity"
525 --------------------------------------------
526
527 Internal code cleanups, bug fixes, improved tag handling and the new
528 amplification filter.
529
530 - para_server uses the generic scheduling code.
531 - overhaul of the virtual streaming system.
532 - mp3: id3 version 2 support via libid3tag (optional)
533 - ogg: vorbis comment support.
534 - aac meta info support.
535 - mp3 audio format handler cleanups.
536 - new filter: "amp" to amplify the amplitude of the audio stream
537 - new status item/database entry: amplification. It is
538 used by the amp filter to pre-amplify the audio stream.
539 - fix a close-without-open bug in para_write.
540 - fix a bug in com_init() which was introduced in 0.3.2.
541 - better error diagnostics for para_client.
542
543 -----------------------------------------
544 0.3.2 (2008-04-11) "probabilistic parity"
545 -----------------------------------------
546
547 The new para_afh executable, scheduling and documentation improvements.
548
549 - new ls option: -lc (list chunk table)
550 - new executable: para_afh, the stand-alone audio file handler tool
551 - afs commands can send output more than SHMMAX (32MB on Linux). This
552 also reduces the memory usage of commands that produce large amounts
553 of output.
554 - major scheduler and audiod cleanups.
555 - more detailed and much nicer man pages.
556
557 ---------------------------------------
558 0.3.1 (2008-02-23) "liquid interaction"
559 ---------------------------------------
560
561 A mix of cleanups, bug fixes, improvements, and some new features. No
562 significant changes to the new database (osl) code, which is generally
563 a good sign.
564
565 - Share some similar/duplicate code between the http and the
566 dccp sender.
567 - Generic access control lists for paraslash senders.
568 - dccp sender: Access control lists, connection limiting and support
569 for the allow,deny,on,off,help sender commands.
570 - The default dccp port changed from 5001 to 8000 (suggested by
571 Gerrit Renker).
572 - para_server starts even if not all public keys could be loaded.
573 - Audiod performance improvements.
574 - fix a bug in the "off" command of the http sender.
575 - fix some fd and memory leaks.
576 - Update to gengetopt-2.22.
577
578 -------------------------------------
579 0.3.0 (2008-01-12) "solar saturation"
580 -------------------------------------
581
582 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
583
584
585 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
586 for a major release like this.
587
588 However, paraslash-0.3.0.tar.bz2 is the smallest paraslash tarball
589 ever. The decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some
590 graphical tools (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the
591 fact that the mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
592
593 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
594 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, osl) increases
595 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
596
597 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
598 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
599 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
600 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
601 - Lyrics support.
602 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
603 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
604 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
605 Solaris (sparc64).
606 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
607 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
608 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
609 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
610 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
611 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
612 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
613 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
614 para_gui is still there.
615 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
616 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
617 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
618 - Improved error subsystem.
619 - The earth-shaking new logo.
620
621 -----------------------------------------
622 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
623 -----------------------------------------
624
625 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
626 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
627
628 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
629 - universal chunk queueing.
630 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
631 to Gerrit Renker).
632 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
633 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
634 codes.
635 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
636 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
637 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
638 compiler characteristics.
639 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
640 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
641
642 --------------------------------------
643 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
644 --------------------------------------
645
646 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
647 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
648 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
649 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
650
651 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
652 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
653 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
654 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
655 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
656 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
657 and AFS_WRITE.
658 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
659 to start only after a few seconds.
660 - fix osx_writer hangs
661 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
662 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
663
664 -----------------------------------------
665 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
666 -----------------------------------------
667
668 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
669
670 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
671 startup rather than for each connection
672 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
673 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
674 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
675 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
676 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
677 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
678 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
679 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
680 correctly
681 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
682 - documentation improvements
683 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
684 - new man pages
685
686 -------------------------------------------
687 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
688 -------------------------------------------
689
690 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
691 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
692 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
693
694 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
695 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
696 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
697 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
698 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
699 - some robustness fixes
700 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
701 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
702 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
703
704 ---------------------------------------
705 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
706 ---------------------------------------
707
708 A bunch of new features and core changes.
709
710 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
711 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
712 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
713 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
714 para_recv and para_filter.
715 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
716 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
717 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
718 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
719 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
720 - update to libortp-0.10.1
721 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
722 - update to autoconf-2.60
723
724 ------------------------------------------
725 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
726 ------------------------------------------
727
728 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
729 features:
730
731
732 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
733 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
734 for this.
735 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
736 - para_play renamed to para_write
737 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
738 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
739 - compress filter speed improvements
740 - update to libortp-0.9.1
741 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
742 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
743 code for the interactive mode was removed).
744 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
745 work, but it gets no more testing.
746 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
747 reduces its size quite a bit.
748 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
749 and --enable-mysql-libs
750
751 ------------------------------------
752 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
753 ------------------------------------
754
755 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
756 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
757 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
758 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
759
760
761 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
762 selector)
763 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
764 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
765 more info (and some examples).
766 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
767 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
768 - the new ipc subsystem
769 - new audio file selector: playlist
770 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
771 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
772 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
773 change the selector at runtime.
774 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
775 - para_play fixes
776
777 --------------------------------------
778 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
779 --------------------------------------
780
781 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
782 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
783 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
784 to the new source documentation.
785
786 - autoconf cleanup
787 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
788 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
789 - gui improvements:
790 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
791 - scrollable output window
792 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
793 - fix color of command output.
794 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
795 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
796 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
797
798 -------------------------------------------
799 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
800 -------------------------------------------
801
802 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
803 a lot of small improvements.
804
805 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
806 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
807 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
808 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
809 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
810 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
811 of the ortp receiver.
812 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
813 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
814 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
815 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
816 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
817 and reduces code size.
818
819 -----------------------------------------
820 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
821 -----------------------------------------
822
823 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
824
825 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
826 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
827 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
828 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
829 read/write operations are used).
830 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
831 certain circumstances.
832
833 -------------------------------------------
834 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
835 -------------------------------------------
836
837 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
838
839
840 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
841 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
842 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
843 too early on a loaded network.
844 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
845 future time by the --start_time option.
846 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
847 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
848 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
849 only the http receiver in this case.
850 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
851 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
852 - improved ortp timings.
853 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
854 gcc < 3.0.
855
856 -------------------------------------------
857 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
858 -------------------------------------------
859
860 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
861 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
862
863 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
864 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
865 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
866 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
867 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
868 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
869 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
870 rather than calling find(1). The server option
871 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
872 - documentation update
873 - man pages
874 - header file cleanup
875 - para_client code cleanup
876 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
877
878 ------------------------------------------
879 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
880 ------------------------------------------
881
882 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
883 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
884 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
885 is no longer needed).
886
887 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
888 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
889 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
890 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
891 in parallel.
892
893 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
894 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
895 sender" for more information.
896 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
897 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
898 http receiver.
899 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
900 senders.
901 - ogg timing improvements
902 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
903 - empty stream definitions work again
904 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
905 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
906
907 ---------------------------------------
908 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
909 ---------------------------------------
910
911 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
912
913 - audiod:
914 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
915 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
916 for more information.
917 - fix memory leak
918 - code cleanup
919 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
920 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
921 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
922 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
923 non-standard places
924 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
925 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
926 new command line option: --announce_time
927
928 -----------------------------------------
929 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
930 -----------------------------------------
931
932 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
933
934 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
935 (including none) filters for each supported audio
936 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
937 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
938 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
939 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
940 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
941 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
942 from stdin.
943 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
944 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
945 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
946 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
947 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
948 clients that play the same stream.
949
950 ------------------------------------------
951 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
952 ------------------------------------------
953
954 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
955 for the mysql database tool.
956
957 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
958 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
959 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
960 resulting binaries)
961 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
962 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
963 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
964 again.
965 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
966 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
967 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
968 information.
969
970 ---------------------------------------
971 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
972 ---------------------------------------
973
974 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
975 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
976
977 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
978 - cleanup of the build system
979 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
980 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
981 line utitlity
982 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
983 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
984 more information.
985 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
986 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
987 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
988 Default: "para_client pic"
989 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
990 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
991
992 ------------------------------------------
993 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
994 ------------------------------------------
995
996 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
997 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
998 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
999
1000
1001 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
1002 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
1003 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
1004 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
1005 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
1006 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
1007 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
1008 libvorbisfile.
1009 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
1010 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
1011 - documentation updates
1012 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
1013 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
1014 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
1015 playback time rather than streaming time
1016 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
1017 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
1018 - switch from gzip to bzip2
1019
1020 ----------------------------------------
1021 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
1022 ----------------------------------------
1023
1024 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
1025 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
1026 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
1027 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
1028
1029 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
1030 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
1031 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
1032 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
1033 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
1034 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
1035 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
1036 than from stdin
1037 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
1038 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
1039 mp3 files with invalid header information
1040 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
1041 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
1042 - diffstats
1043
1044 ---------------------------------------
1045 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
1046 ---------------------------------------
1047
1048 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
1049 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
1050 stick to mp3...
1051
1052 - fix several memory leaks
1053 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
1054 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
1055 rename your old database.
1056 - rework ogg vorbis code
1057 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
1058 disabled
1059 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
1060 - simplified audio format API
1061 - para_pob_ogg is gone
1062
1063 ------------------------------------
1064 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
1065 ------------------------------------
1066
1067 Let's slide gently into the new year.
1068
1069 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
1070 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
1071 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
1072 README and FEATURES for more info.
1073 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
1074 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
1075 race-free.
1076 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
1077 - improved help message for sl
1078 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
1079 perfectly ok.
1080 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
1081
1082 -----------------------------------------
1083 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
1084 -----------------------------------------
1085
1086 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
1087 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
1088 enhancements went also in.
1089
1090 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
1091 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
1092 exists, rather than returning errors
1093 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
1094 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
1095 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
1096 no server is running
1097 - si: report also server pid
1098 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
1099 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
1100 - fix pic_add, hist
1101 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
1102 - many small fixes and cleanups
1103
1104 ---------------------------------------
1105 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
1106 ---------------------------------------
1107
1108 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
1109 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
1110 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
1111 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
1112 compatible in that respect.
1113
1114 Visible changes:
1115
1116 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
1117 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
1118 always work.
1119 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
1120 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
1121 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
1122 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
1123 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
1124 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
1125 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
1126 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
1127
1128 -------------------------------------------
1129 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
1130 -------------------------------------------
1131
1132 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
1133
1134 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
1135 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
1136 id.
1137 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
1138
1139 -----------------------------------------
1140 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
1141 -----------------------------------------
1142

1158
1159 -----------------------------------------
1160 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
1161 -----------------------------------------
1162
1163 - rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
1164 and stream large audio sets happily)
1165 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
1166 streaming software
1167 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
1168 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
1169 file/config option for dbtool.
1170 - picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
1171 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
1172 - new default pictures for sdl_gui
1173 - gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
1174 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
1175 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
1176 show silly logo on startup
1177 - new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
1178 manipulating attributes
1179 - cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
1180 - revised and beautified documentation

1185 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
1186 ---------------------------------------------
1187
1188 - kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
1189 core code considerably.
1190 - cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
1191 give finer info on afs' status.
1192 - gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
1193 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
1194 - gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
1195 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
1196 continuously.
1197 - new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
1198 - fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
1199 - codename funnies
