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 0.2.x to 0.3.x.
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 (stripped) binary
20 size of para_server increases about 50K in i386.
21
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 - Lyrics support.
27 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
28 - More portable than ever: Tested on Linux (x86_32, x86_64, sparc64),
29 MacOS (ppc32, intel), FreeBSD (x86_32), Solaris (sparc64).
30 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
31 playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
32 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
33 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
34 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
35 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
36 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
37 para_gui is still there.
38 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
39 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
40 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
41 - Improved error subsystem.
42 - The earth-shaking new logo.
43
44 ----------------------------------------------
45 0.2.17 (to be announced) "isotropic threshold"
46 ----------------------------------------------
47
48 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
49 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
50
51 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
52 - universal chunk queueing.
53 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
54 to Gerrit Renker).
55 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
56 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
57 codes.
58 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
59 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
60 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
61 compiler characteristics.
62
63 --------------------------------------
64 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
65 --------------------------------------
66
67 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
68 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
69 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
70 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
71
72 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
73 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
74 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
75 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
76 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
77 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
78 and AFS_WRITE.
79 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
80 to start only after a few seconds.
81 - fix osx_writer hangs
82 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
83 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
84
85 -----------------------------------------
86 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
87 -----------------------------------------
88
89 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
90
91 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
92 startup rather than for each connection
93 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
94 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
95 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
96 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
97 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
98 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
99 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
100 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
101 correctly
102 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
103 - documentation improvements
104 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
105 - new man pages
106
107 -------------------------------------------
108 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
109 -------------------------------------------
110
111 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
112 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
113 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
114
115 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
116 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
117 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
118 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
119 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
120 - some robustness fixes
121 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
122 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
123 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
124
125 ---------------------------------------
126 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
127 ---------------------------------------
128
129 A bunch of new features and core changes.
130
131 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
132 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
133 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
134 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
135 para_recv and para_filter.
136 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
137 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
138 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
139 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
140 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
141 - update to libortp-0.10.1
142 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
143 - update to autoconf-2.60
144
145
146 ------------------------------------------
147 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
148 ------------------------------------------
149
150 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
151 features:
152
153
154 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
155 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
156 for this.
157 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
158 - para_play renamed to para_write
159 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
160 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
161 - compress filter speed improvements
162 - update to libortp-0.9.1
163 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
164 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
165 code for the interactive mode was removed).
166 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
167 work, but it gets no more testing.
168 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
169 reduces its size quite a bit.
170 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
171 and --enable-mysql-libs
172
173 ------------------------------------
174 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
175 ------------------------------------
176
177 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
178 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
179 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
180 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
181
182
183 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
184 selector)
185 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
186 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
187 more info (and some examples).
188 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
189 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
190 - the new ipc subsystem
191 - new audio file selector: playlist
192 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
193 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
194 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
195 change the selector at runtime.
196 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
197 - para_play fixes
198
199
200 --------------------------------------
201 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
202 --------------------------------------
203
204 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
205 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
206 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
207 to the new source documentation.
208
209 - autoconf cleanup
210 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
211 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
212 - gui improvements:
213 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
214 - scrollable output window
215 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
216 - fix color of command output.
217 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
218 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
219 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
220
221
222 -------------------------------------------
223 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
224 -------------------------------------------
225
226 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
227 a lot of small improvements.
228
229 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
230 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
231 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
232 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
233 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
234 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
235 of the ortp receiver.
236 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
237 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
238 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
239 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
240 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
241 and reduces code size.
242
243
244 -----------------------------------------
245 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
246 -----------------------------------------
247
248 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
249
250 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
251 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
252 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
253 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
254 read/write operations are used).
255 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
256 certain circumstances.
257
258
259 -------------------------------------------
260 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
261 -------------------------------------------
262
263 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
264
265
266 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
267 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
268 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
269 too early on a loaded network.
270 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
271 future time by the --start_time option.
272 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
273 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
274 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
275 only the http receiver in this case.
276 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
277 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
278 - improved ortp timings.
279 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
280 gcc < 3.0.
281
282
283 -------------------------------------------
284 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
285 -------------------------------------------
286
287 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
288 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
289
290 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
291 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
292 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
293 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
294 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
295 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
296 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
297 rather than calling find(1). The server option
298 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
299 - documentation update
300 - man pages
301 - header file cleanup
302 - para_client code cleanup
303 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
304
305
306 ------------------------------------------
307 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
308 ------------------------------------------
309
310 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
311 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
312 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
313 is no longer needed).
314
315 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
316 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
317 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
318 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
319 in parallel.
320
321 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
322 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
323 sender" for more information.
324 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
325 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
326 http receiver.
327 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
328 senders.
329 - ogg timing improvements
330 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
331 - empty stream definitions work again
332 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
333 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
334
335
336 ---------------------------------------
337 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
338 ---------------------------------------
339
340 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
341
342 - audiod:
343 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
344 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
345 for more information.
346 - fix memory leak
347 - code cleanup
348 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
349 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
350 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
351 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
352 non-standard places
353 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
354 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
355 new command line option: --announce_time
356
357
358 -----------------------------------------
359 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
360 -----------------------------------------
361
362 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
363
364 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
365 (including none) filters for each supported audio
366 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
367 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
368 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
369 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
370 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
371 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
372 from stdin.
373 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
374 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
375 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
376 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
377 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
378 clients that play the same stream.
379
380
381 ------------------------------------------
382 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
383 ------------------------------------------
384
385 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
386 for the mysql database tool.
387
388 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
389 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
390 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
391 resulting binaries)
392 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
393 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
394 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
395 again.
396 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
397 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
398 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
399 information.
400
401
402 ---------------------------------------
403 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
404 ---------------------------------------
405
406 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
407 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
408
409 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
410 - cleanup of the build system
411 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
412 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
413 line utitlity
414 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
415 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
416 more information.
417 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
418 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
419 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
420 Default: "para_client pic"
421 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
422 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
423
424
425
426 ------------------------------------------
427 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
428 ------------------------------------------
429
430 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
431 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
432 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
433
434
435 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
436 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
437 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
438 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
439 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
440 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
441 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
442 libvorbisfile.
443 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
444 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
445 - documentation updates
446 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
447 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
448 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
449 playback time rather than streaming time
450 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
451 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
452 - switch from gzip to bzip2
453
454
455 ----------------------------------------
456 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
457 ----------------------------------------
458
459 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
460 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
461 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
462 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
463
464 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
465 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
466 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
467 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
468 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
469 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
470 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
471 than from stdin
472 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
473 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
474 mp3 files with invalid header information
475 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
476 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
477 - diffstats
478
479
480 ---------------------------------------
481 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
482 ---------------------------------------
483
484 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
485 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
486 stick to mp3...
487
488 - fix several memory leaks
489 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
490 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
491 rename your old database.
492 - rework ogg vorbis code
493 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
494 disabled
495 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
496 - simplified audio format API
497 - para_pob_ogg is gone
498
499 ------------------------------------
500 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
501 ------------------------------------
502
503 Let's slide gently into the new year.
504
505 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
506 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
507 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
508 README and FEATURES for more info.
509 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
510 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
511 race-free.
512 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
513 - improved help message for sl
514 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
515 perfectly ok.
516 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
517
518 -----------------------------------------
519 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
520 -----------------------------------------
521
522 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
523 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
524 enhancements went also in.
525
526 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
527 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
528 exists, rather than returning errors
529 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
530 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
531 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
532 no server is running
533 - si: report also server pid
534 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
535 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
536 - fix pic_add, hist
537 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
538 - many small fixes and cleanups
539
540 ---------------------------------------
541 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
542 ---------------------------------------
543
544 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
545 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
546 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
547 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
548 compatible in that respect.
549
550 Visible changes:
551
552 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
553 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
554 always work.
555 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
556 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
557 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
558 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
559 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
560 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
561 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
562 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
563
564
565 -------------------------------------------
566 0.1.2: (2004-11-28) "spherical fluctuation"
567 -------------------------------------------
568
569 Point release before the big dbtool changes go in.
570
571 - dbtool: rename ca to cam (copy all meta data). It now also
572 copies numplayed and lastplayed time as well as the picture
573 id.
574 - fix endless-loop-bug caused by mp3 files with invalid header
575
576 -----------------------------------------

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