4 0.?.? (to be announced) "atomic duality"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6 o update to gengetopt-2.16
7
8 o switch from cvs to git
9
10 o the new ipc subsystem
11
12 o new database tool: plm, the playlist manager
13
14 o dopey renamed to random. It is now the default database tool.
15 Use the --dbtool option to choose another dbtool at startup, or
16 the cdt command to switch between the supported dbtools.
17
18
19 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
20 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
21
22 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
23 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
24 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
25 to the new source documentation.
26
27 o autoconf cleanup
28
29 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
30
31 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
32
33 o gui improvements:
34 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
35 - scrollable output window
36 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
37 - fix color of command output.
38
39 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
40 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
41 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

113 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
114 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
115
116 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
117 a lot of small improvements.
118
119 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
120 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
121 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
122 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
123 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
124
125 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
126 of the ortp receiver.
127
128 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
129 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
130 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
131
132 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
133
134 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
135 and reduces code size.

189 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
190
191 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
192
193 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
194 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
195 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
196 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
197 read/write operations are used).
198
199 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
200 certain circumstances.

225 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
226 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
227 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
228
229
230 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
231 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
232 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
233 too early on a loaded network.
234
235 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
236 future time by the --start_time option.
237
238 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
239 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
240 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
241 only the http receiver in this case.
242
243 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
244 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
245
246 o improved ortp timings.
247
248 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
249 gcc < 3.0.

300 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
301 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
302 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
303 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
304
305 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
306 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
307 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
308 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
309 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
310 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
311
312 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
313 rather than calling find(1). The server option
314 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
315
316 o documentation update
317
318 o man pages
319
320 o header file cleanup
321
322 o para_client code cleanup
323
324 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

368 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
369 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
370 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
371 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
372 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
373 is no longer needed).
374
375 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
376 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
377 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
378 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
379 in parallel.
380
381 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
382 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
383 sender" for more information.
384
385 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
386
387 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
388 http receiver.
389
390 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
391 senders.
392
393 o ogg timing improvements
394
395 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
396
397 o empty stream definitions work again
398
399 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
400
401 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
402
403 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

435 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
436 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
437 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
438
439 o audiod:
440 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
441 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
442 for more information.
443 - fix memory leak
444 - code cleanup
445
446 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
447 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
448
449 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
450
451 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
452 non-standard places
453
454 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
455
456 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
457 new command line option: --announce_time

491 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
492 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
493 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
494
495 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
496 (including none) filters for each supported audio
497 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
498 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
499 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
500 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
501
502 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
503 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
504 from stdin.
505
506 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
507 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
508 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
509
510 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
511 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
512 clients that play the same stream.
513
514 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

535 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
536 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
537 for the mysql database tool.
538
539 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
540 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
541 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
542 resulting binaries)
543 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
544 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
545 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
546 again.
547 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
548 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
549 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
550 information.

588 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
589 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
590 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
591 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
592
593 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
594 o cleanup of the build system
595 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
596 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
597 line utitlity
598 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
599 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
600 more information.
601 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
602 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
603 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
604 Default: "para_client pic"
605 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
606 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
607
608

649 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
650 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
651 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
652 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
653 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
654
655
656 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
657 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
658 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
659 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
660 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
661 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
662 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
663 libvorbisfile.
664 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
665 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
666 o documentation updates
667 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
668 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
669 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
670 playback time rather than streaming time
671 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
672 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
673 o switch from gzip to bzip2
674
675 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c
676 recv.c recv.ggo send.c send.ggo stat.c

719 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
720 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
721 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
722 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
723 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
724 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
725
726 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
727 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
728 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
729 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
730 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
731 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
732 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
733 than from stdin
734 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
735 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
736 mp3 files with invalid header information
737 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
738 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
739 o diffstats
740
741 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

769 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
770 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
771 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
772 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
773 stick to mp3...
774
775 o fix several memory leaks
776 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
777 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
778 rename your old database.
779 o rework ogg vorbis code
780 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
781 disabled
782 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
783 o simplified audio format API
784 o para_pob_ogg is gone
785
786 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
787 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
788 Let's slide gently into the new year.
789
790 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
791 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
792 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
793 README and FEATURES for more info.
794 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
795 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
796 race-free.
797 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
798 o improved help message for sl
799 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
800 perfectly ok.
801 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
802
803 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
804 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
805 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
806 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
807 enhancements went also in.
808
809 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
810 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
811 exists, rather than returning errors
812 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
813 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
814 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
815 no server is running
816 o si: report also server pid
817 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
818 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
819 o fix pic_add, hist
820 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
821 o many small fixes and cleanups
822
823 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
824 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
825 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
826 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
827 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
828 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
829 compatible in that respect.
830
831 Visible changes:
832
833 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
834 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
835 always work.
836 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
837 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
838 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
839 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
840 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
841 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
842 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
843 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
844
845
846 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
847 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
848 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
849
850 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
851 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
852 id.
853 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
854
855 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
856 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
857 o gkrellm plugin
858 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
859 with your favorite mail reader.
860 o several small fixes
861
862 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
863 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
864 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
865 o fix skip command
866 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
867 o modular audio format support
868 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
869 o new server option: autoplay
870
871 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
872 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
873 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
874 and stream large audio sets happily)
875 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
876 streaming software
877 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
878 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
879 file/config option for dbtool.
880 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
881 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
882 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
883 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
884 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
885 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
886 show silly logo on startup
887 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
888 manipulating attributes
889 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
890 o revised and beautified documentation
891 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
892 o autoconf
893
894 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
895 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
896 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
897 core code considerably.
898 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
899 give finer info on afs' status.
900 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
901 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
902 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
903 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
904 continuously.
905 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
906 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
907 o codename funnies
908
909 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
910 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
911 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
912 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config
913 o config file for gui and sdl_gui

917 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
918 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
919 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
920 o fix several potential buffer overflows
921 o many small fixes and cleanups
922
923 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
924 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
925 o easy stream_defs syntax
926 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
927 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
928 placement and the top/bottom window design
929 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
930 well as for invalid picture pointers
931 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
932 o many small fixes and cleanups
933
934 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)
935 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

962 with unsufficient permissions
963 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
964 o icecast meta data streaming
965 o many small fixes and cleanups
