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

541
542 ---------------------------------------
543 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
544 ---------------------------------------
545
546 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
547 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
548 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
549 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
550 compatible in that respect.
551
552 Visible changes:
553
554 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
555 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
556 always work.
557 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
558 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
559 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
560 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
561 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
562 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
563 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
564 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
565
566
567 -------------------------------------------

569 -------------------------------------------
570
571 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
572
573 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
574 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
575 id.
576 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
577

604 - paraslash is no longer restricted to one particular audio
605 streaming software
606 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
607 managment w/o configuration file. That obsoletes stream_defs
