4 0.?.? (to be announced) "atomic duality"
5 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
6
7 Fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of the
8 three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
9 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
10
11
12 o the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
13 selector)
14
15 o no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
16 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
17 more info (and some examples).
18
19 o update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
20
21 o switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
22
23 o the new ipc subsystem
24
25 o new audio file selector: playlist
26
27 o para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
28 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
29 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
30 change the selector at runtime.
31
32 o X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
33
34 o para_play fixes
35
36
37 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
38 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
39
40 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
41 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
42 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
43 to the new source documentation.
44
45 o autoconf cleanup
46
47 o para_server also uses the new error subsystem
48
49 o lots of new documentation (UTSL)
50
51 o gui improvements:
52 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
53 - scrollable output window
54 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
55 - fix color of command output.
56
57 o ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
58 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
59 each rtp packet sent by para_server.

131 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
132 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
133
134 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
135 a lot of small improvements.
136
137 o para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
138 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
139 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
140 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
141 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
142
143 o further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
144 of the ortp receiver.
145
146 o improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
147 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
148 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
149
150 o oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
151
152 o the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
153 and reduces code size.

207 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
208
209 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
210
211 o new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
212 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
213 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
214 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
215 read/write operations are used).
216
217 o para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
218 certain circumstances.

243 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
244 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
245 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
246
247
248 o The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
249 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
250 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
251 too early on a loaded network.
252
253 o para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
254 future time by the --start_time option.
255
256 o The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
257 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
258 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
259 only the http receiver in this case.
260
261 o update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
262 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
263
264 o improved ortp timings.
265
266 o use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
267 gcc < 3.0.
268
269 New files: gcc-compat.h

318 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
319 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
320 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
321 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
322
323 o Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
324 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
325 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
326 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
327 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
328 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
329
330 o para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
331 rather than calling find(1). The server option
332 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
333
334 o documentation update
335
336 o man pages
337
338 o header file cleanup
339
340 o para_client code cleanup
341
342 o para_gui: faster display of output of display commands

386 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive_resolution"
387 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
388 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
389 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
390 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
391 is no longer needed).
392
393 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
394 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
395 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
396 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
397 in parallel.
398
399 o new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
400 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
401 sender" for more information.
402
403 o para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
404
405 o new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
406 http receiver.
407
408 o major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
409 senders.
410
411 o ogg timing improvements
412
413 o fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
414
415 o empty stream definitions work again
416
417 o com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
418
419 o audiod: fix segfault on server restart
420
421 New files: http.h http_recv.c http_recv.ggo http_send.c ortp.h ortp_recv.c

453 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
454 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
455 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
456
457 o audiod:
458 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
459 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
460 for more information.
461 - fix memory leak
462 - code cleanup
463
464 o audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
465 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
466
467 o improved error diagnostics for para_play.
468
469 o new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
470 non-standard places
471
472 o sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
473
474 o server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
475 new command line option: --announce_time

509 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
510 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
511 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
512
513 o audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
514 (including none) filters for each supported audio
515 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
516 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
517 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
518 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
519
520 o new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
521 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
522 from stdin.
523
524 o new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
525 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
526 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
527
528 o audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
529 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
530 clients that play the same stream.
531
532 New files: compress.c compress.ggo play.c play.ggo

552 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
553 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
554 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
555 for the mysql database tool.
556
557 o cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
558 o compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
559 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
560 resulting binaries)
561 o new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
562 o workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
563 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
564 again.
565 o avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
566 o new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
567 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
568 information.

606 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
607 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
608 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
609 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
610
611 o kill noisy mp3 debug message
612 o cleanup of the build system
613 o para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
614 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
615 line utitlity
616 o server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
617 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
618 more information.
619 o gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
620 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
621 o sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
622 Default: "para_client pic"
623 o audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
624 o audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
625
626
627 New files: crypt.c crypt.h

667 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
668 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
669 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
670 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
671 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
672
673
674 o para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
675 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
676 o new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
677 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
678 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
679 o new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
680 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
681 libvorbisfile.
682 o ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
683 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
684 o documentation updates
685 o para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
686 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
687 o gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
688 playback time rather than streaming time
689 o slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
690 o para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
691 o switch from gzip to bzip2
692
693 New files: audioc.c audioc.ggo audiod.c audiod.ggo daemon.c gui_theme.c mp3dec.c oggdec.c
694 recv.c recv.ggo send.c send.ggo stat.c

736
737 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
738 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
739 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
740 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
741 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
742 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
743
744 o new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
745 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
746 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
747 o rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
748 o configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
749 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
750 o server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
751 than from stdin
752 o slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
753 o fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
754 mp3 files with invalid header information
755 o gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
756 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
757 o diffstats
758
759 New files: ovrecv.c ovrecv.ggo ovsend.c ovsend.ggo time.c

787 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
788 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
789 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
790 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
791 stick to mp3...
792
793 o fix several memory leaks
794 o rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
795 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
796 rename your old database.
797 o rework ogg vorbis code
798 o make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
799 disabled
800 o gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
801 o simplified audio format API
802 o para_pob_ogg is gone
803
804 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
805 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
806 Let's slide gently into the new year.
807
808 o new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
809 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
810 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
811 README and FEATURES for more info.
812 o improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
813 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
814 race-free.
815 o reload database tool on SIGHUP
816 o improved help message for sl
817 o do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
818 perfectly ok.
819 o fix wrong error message on permission errors
820
821 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
822 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
823 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
824 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
825 enhancements went also in.
826
827 o improved error diagnostics for all commands
828 o stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
829 exists, rather than returning errors
830 o stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
831 o faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
832 o para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
833 no server is running
834 o si: report also server pid
835 o server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
836 o gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
837 o fix pic_add, hist
838 o fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
839 o many small fixes and cleanups
840
841 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
842 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
843 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
844 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
845 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
846 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
847 compatible in that respect.
848
849 Visible changes:
850
851 o If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
852 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
853 always work.
854 o para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
855 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
856 o new command: cdt (change database tool)
857 o new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
858 o The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
859 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
860 o new command: csp (change stream and play)
861 o para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
862
863
864 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
865 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
866 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
867
868 o dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
869 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
870 id.
871 o fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
872
873 0.1.1: (2004-11-05) "floating atmosphere"
874 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
875 o gkrellm plugin
876 o new dbtool command: mbox. Browse your sound-file collection
877 with your favorite mail reader.
878 o several small fixes
879
880 0.1.0: (2204-10-22) "rotating cortex"
881 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
882 o fix logging bug for loglevel > VERBOSE
883 o fix skip command
884 o correct timings for vbr mp3s
885 o modular audio format support
886 o ogg-vorbis support (experimental)
887 o new server option: autoplay
888
889 0.0.99: (2004-07-25) "harmonic deviation"
890 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
891 o rename projectname from icc to paraslash (play, archive, rate
892 and stream large audio sets happily)
893 o paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
894 streaming software
895 o new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
896 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
897 file/config option for dbtool.
898 o picadd accepts jpeg data from stdin
899 o new server commands: ps (select previous stream), sc (song change)
900 o new default pictures for sdl_gui
901 o gui: new key_map option for binding commands and internal
902 functions to arbitrary keys, nice help screen, rip out
903 soundcard/linux specific stuff, avoid noise artefacts while jumping,
904 show silly logo on startup
905 o new executables: para_fade for fading volume, para_dbadm for
906 manipulating attributes
907 o cdb adds _all_ tables to mysql database
908 o revised and beautified documentation
909 o sample dbtool rewritten in C
910 o autoconf
911
912 0.0.98: (2003-12-26) "incremental smoothness"
913 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
914 o kick icecast in favour of poc. That removes some races and reduces
915 core code considerably.
916 o cbr/vbr is displayed by stat and gui/sdl_gui. New status flags
917 give finer info on afs' status.
918 o gui can start decoder (see config options). Further new gui
919 commands: refresh (^L), jmp (F1-F10)
920 o gui rereads conf on SIGUSR1 instead of SIGHUP. SIGHUP
921 terminates gui. This fixes dead instances consuming memory
922 continuously.
923 o new dbtool command: verb for sending verbatim sql queries.
924 o fix pid_list races (by removing pid_list)
925 o codename funnies
926
927 0.0.97: (2003-10-26)
928 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
929 o installation prefix now defaults to /usr/local
930 o new commands for gui: snozze, sleep and reread config
931 o config file for gui and sdl_gui
932 o fix problems with filenames containing funny characters
933 (reported by Thomas Forell)

935 o new dbtool command: cdb (create database)
936 o switch from argtable to gengetopt
937 o major code cleanup and speed improvements
938 o fix several potential buffer overflows
939 o many small fixes and cleanups
940
941 0.0.96 (2003-08-30)
942 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
943 o easy stream_defs syntax
944 o sdl_gui can display images associated to the file being played
945 o Major feature enhancements for icc_gui including dynamic text
946 placement and the top/bottom window design
947 o vrfy/clean now also checks for NULL values in attributes as
948 well as for invalid picture pointers
949 o fix long outstanding case sensitivity bug
950 o many small fixes and cleanups
951
952 0.0.95 (2003-06-29)
953 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
954 o sdl gui runs much faster
955 o new dbtool command: ca (copy attributes)
956 o count and display number of times the song has been played
957 o new feature: scoring
958 o command line options for sdl_gui
959 o simpler syntax of streams file
960 o decrease network traffic of stat
961 o fix zombie bug
962 o many small fixes and cleanups
963
964 0.0.94 (2003-05-04)
965 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

972 o many small fixes and cleanups
973
974 0.0.93 (2003-03-28)
975 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

977 o icc_gui sets volume directly (linux only)
978 o proper locking that fixes some races
979 o fix security bug that caused commands to be executed even
980 with unsufficient permissions
981 o new command: hup to make all servers reread their configuration file
982 o icecast meta data streaming
983 o many small fixes and cleanups
