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

543
544 ---------------------------------------
545 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
546 ---------------------------------------
547
548 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
549 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
550 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
551 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
552 compatible in that respect.
553
554 Visible changes:
555
556 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
557 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
558 always work.
559 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
560 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
561 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
562 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
563 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
564 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
565 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
566 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
567
568
569 -------------------------------------------

571 -------------------------------------------
572
573 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.

575 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
576 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
577 id.

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