8 paraslash.0.3.0 -- 'WWDBND --what would databases never do?'.
9
10
11 Usually one might expect lots of new features AND a big increase in size
12 for a major release like this.
13
14 However, this release is smaller than the latest 0.2.x releases. The
15 decrease in size is mostly due to the removal of some graphical tools
16 (which were only quick hacks anyway). But also the fact that the
17 mysql code is gone cuts down the size a bit.
18
19 Being independent of mysql comes at a cost: The fact that paraslash
20 now contains its own database (the object storage layer, ols) increases
21 the (stripped) binary size of para_server by ~50K on i386.
22
23 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
24 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
25 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
26 - New executable para_fsck: Check integrity of osl tables.
27 - Lyrics support.
28 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
29 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
30 MacOS (ppc32, x86_32), FreeBSD (x86_32), NetBSD (x86_32) and
31 Solaris (sparc64).
32 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
33 the playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
34 - IPv6 support (thanks to Gerrit Renker).
35 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
36 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
37 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
38 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
39 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
40 para_gui is still there.
41 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
42 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
43 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
44 - Improved error subsystem.
45 - The earth-shaking new logo.
46
47 -----------------------------------------
48 0.2.17 (2007-11-20) "isotropic threshold"
49 -----------------------------------------
50
51 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
52 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
53
54 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
55 - universal chunk queueing.
56 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
57 to Gerrit Renker).
58 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
59 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
60 codes.
61 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
62 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
63 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
64 compiler characteristics.
65 - Fix streaming of large mp3 files.
66 - Fix an off-by-one bug in playlist handling.
67
68 --------------------------------------
69 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
70 --------------------------------------
71
72 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
73 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
74 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
75 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
76
77 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
78 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
79 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
80 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
81 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
82 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
83 and AFS_WRITE.
84 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
85 to start only after a few seconds.
86 - fix osx_writer hangs
87 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
88 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
89
90 -----------------------------------------
91 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
92 -----------------------------------------
93
94 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
95
96 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
97 startup rather than for each connection
98 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
99 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
100 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
101 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
102 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
103 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
104 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
105 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
106 correctly
107 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
108 - documentation improvements
109 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
110 - new man pages
111
112 -------------------------------------------
113 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
114 -------------------------------------------
115
116 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
117 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
118 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
119
120 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
121 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
122 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
123 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
124 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
125 - some robustness fixes
126 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
127 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
128 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
129
130 ---------------------------------------
131 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
132 ---------------------------------------
133
134 A bunch of new features and core changes.
135
136 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
137 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
138 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
139 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
140 para_recv and para_filter.
141 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
142 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
143 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
144 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
145 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
146 - update to libortp-0.10.1
147 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
148 - update to autoconf-2.60
149
150
151 ------------------------------------------
152 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
153 ------------------------------------------
154
155 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
156 features:
157
158
159 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
160 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
161 for this.
162 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
163 - para_play renamed to para_write
164 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
165 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
166 - compress filter speed improvements
167 - update to libortp-0.9.1
168 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
169 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
170 code for the interactive mode was removed).
171 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
172 work, but it gets no more testing.
173 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
174 reduces its size quite a bit.
175 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
176 and --enable-mysql-libs
177
178 ------------------------------------
179 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
180 ------------------------------------
181
182 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
183 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
184 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
185 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
186
187
188 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
189 selector)
190 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
191 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
192 more info (and some examples).
193 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
194 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
195 - the new ipc subsystem
196 - new audio file selector: playlist
197 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
198 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
199 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
200 change the selector at runtime.
201 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
202 - para_play fixes
203
204
205 --------------------------------------
206 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
207 --------------------------------------
208
209 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
210 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
211 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
212 to the new source documentation.
213
214 - autoconf cleanup
215 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
216 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
217 - gui improvements:
218 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
219 - scrollable output window
220 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
221 - fix color of command output.
222 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
223 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
224 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
225
226
227 -------------------------------------------
228 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
229 -------------------------------------------
230
231 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
232 a lot of small improvements.
233
234 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
235 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
236 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
237 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
238 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
239 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
240 of the ortp receiver.
241 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
242 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
243 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
244 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
245 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
246 and reduces code size.
247
248
249 -----------------------------------------
250 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
251 -----------------------------------------
252
253 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
254
255 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
256 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
257 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
258 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
259 read/write operations are used).
260 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
261 certain circumstances.
262
263
264 -------------------------------------------
265 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
266 -------------------------------------------
267
268 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
269
270
271 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
272 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
273 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
274 too early on a loaded network.
275 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
276 future time by the --start_time option.
277 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
278 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
279 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
280 only the http receiver in this case.
281 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
282 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
283 - improved ortp timings.
284 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
285 gcc < 3.0.
286
287
288 -------------------------------------------
289 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
290 -------------------------------------------
291
292 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
293 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
294
295 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
296 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
297 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
298 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
299 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
300 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
301 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
302 rather than calling find(1). The server option
303 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
304 - documentation update
305 - man pages
306 - header file cleanup
307 - para_client code cleanup
308 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
309
310
311 ------------------------------------------
312 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
313 ------------------------------------------
314
315 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
316 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
317 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
318 is no longer needed).
319
320 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
321 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
322 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
323 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
324 in parallel.
325
326 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
327 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
328 sender" for more information.
329 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
330 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
331 http receiver.
332 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
333 senders.
334 - ogg timing improvements
335 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
336 - empty stream definitions work again
337 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
338 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
339
340
341 ---------------------------------------
342 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
343 ---------------------------------------
344
345 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
346
347 - audiod:
348 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
349 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
350 for more information.
351 - fix memory leak
352 - code cleanup
353 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
354 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
355 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
356 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
357 non-standard places
358 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
359 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
360 new command line option: --announce_time
361
362
363 -----------------------------------------
364 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
365 -----------------------------------------
366
367 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
368
369 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
370 (including none) filters for each supported audio
371 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
372 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
373 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
374 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
375 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
376 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
377 from stdin.
378 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
379 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
380 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
381 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
382 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
383 clients that play the same stream.
384
385
386 ------------------------------------------
387 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
388 ------------------------------------------
389
390 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
391 for the mysql database tool.
392
393 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
394 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
395 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
396 resulting binaries)
397 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
398 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
399 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
400 again.
401 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
402 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
403 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
404 information.
405
406
407 ---------------------------------------
408 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
409 ---------------------------------------
410
411 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
412 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
413
414 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
415 - cleanup of the build system
416 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
417 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
418 line utitlity
419 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
420 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
421 more information.
422 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
423 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
424 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
425 Default: "para_client pic"
426 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
427 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
428
429
430
431 ------------------------------------------
432 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
433 ------------------------------------------
434
435 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
436 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
437 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
438
439
440 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
441 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
442 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
443 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
444 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
445 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
446 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
447 libvorbisfile.
448 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
449 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
450 - documentation updates
451 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
452 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
453 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
454 playback time rather than streaming time
455 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
456 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
457 - switch from gzip to bzip2
458
459
460 ----------------------------------------
461 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
462 ----------------------------------------
463
464 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
465 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
466 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
467 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
468
469 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
470 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
471 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
472 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
473 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
474 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
475 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
476 than from stdin
477 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
478 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
479 mp3 files with invalid header information
480 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
481 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
482 - diffstats
483
484
485 ---------------------------------------
486 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
487 ---------------------------------------
488
489 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
490 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
491 stick to mp3...
492
493 - fix several memory leaks
494 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
495 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
496 rename your old database.
497 - rework ogg vorbis code
498 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
499 disabled
500 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
501 - simplified audio format API
502 - para_pob_ogg is gone
503
504 ------------------------------------
505 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
506 ------------------------------------
507
508 Let's slide gently into the new year.
509
510 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
511 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
512 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
513 README and FEATURES for more info.
514 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
515 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
516 race-free.
517 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
518 - improved help message for sl
519 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
520 perfectly ok.
521 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
522
523 -----------------------------------------
524 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
525 -----------------------------------------
526
527 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
528 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
529 enhancements went also in.
530
531 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
532 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
533 exists, rather than returning errors

544
545 ---------------------------------------
546 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
547 ---------------------------------------
548
549 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
550 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
551 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
552 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
553 compatible in that respect.
554
555 Visible changes:
556
557 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
558 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
559 always work.
560 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
561 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
562 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
563 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
564 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
565 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
566 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
567 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
568
569
570 -------------------------------------------

572 -------------------------------------------
573
574 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
575
576 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
577 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
578 id.

580

606 and stream large audio sets happily)
607 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
608 streaming software
609 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
610 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
611 file/config option for dbtool.

613 - new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
614 - new default pictures for sdl_gui

620 manipulating attributes
