5 0.3.0 (to be announced) "solar saturation"
6 ------------------------------------------
7
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 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
29 playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
30 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
31 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
32 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
33 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
34 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
35 para_gui is still there.
36 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
37 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
38 mysql commands (and are available also in playlist mode).
39 - Improved error subsystem.
40 - The earth-shaking new logo.
41
42 ----------------------------------------------
43 0.2.17 (to be announced) "isotropic threshold"
44 ----------------------------------------------
45
46 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
47 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
48
49 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
50 - universal chunk queueing.
51 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
52 to Gerrit Renker).
53 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
54 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
55 codes.
56 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
57 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
58 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
59 compiler characteristics.
60
61 --------------------------------------
62 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
63 --------------------------------------
64
65 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
66 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
67 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
68 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
69
70 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
71 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
72 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
73 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
74 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
75 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
76 and AFS_WRITE.
77 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
78 to start only after a few seconds.
79 - fix osx_writer hangs
80 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
81 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
82
83 -----------------------------------------
84 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
85 -----------------------------------------
86
87 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
88
89 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
90 startup rather than for each connection
91 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
92 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
93 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
94 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
95 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
96 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
97 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
98 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
99 correctly
100 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
101 - documentation improvements
102 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
103 - new man pages
104
105 -------------------------------------------
106 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
107 -------------------------------------------
108
109 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
110 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
111 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
112
113 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
114 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
115 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
116 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
117 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
118 - some robustness fixes
119 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
120 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
121 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
122
123 ---------------------------------------
124 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
125 ---------------------------------------
126
127 A bunch of new features and core changes.
128
129 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
130 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
131 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
132 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
133 para_recv and para_filter.
134 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
135 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
136 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
137 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
138 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
139 - update to libortp-0.10.1
140 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
141 - update to autoconf-2.60
142
143
144 ------------------------------------------
145 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
146 ------------------------------------------
147
148 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
149 features:
150
151
152 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
153 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
154 for this.
155 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
156 - para_play renamed to para_write
157 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
158 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
159 - compress filter speed improvements
160 - update to libortp-0.9.1
161 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
162 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
163 code for the interactive mode was removed).
164 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
165 work, but it gets no more testing.
166 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
167 reduces its size quite a bit.
168 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
169 and --enable-mysql-libs
170
171 ------------------------------------
172 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
173 ------------------------------------
174
175 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
176 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
177 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
178 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
179
180
181 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
182 selector)
183 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
184 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
185 more info (and some examples).
186 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
187 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
188 - the new ipc subsystem
189 - new audio file selector: playlist
190 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
191 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
192 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
193 change the selector at runtime.
194 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
195 - para_play fixes
196
197
198 --------------------------------------
199 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
200 --------------------------------------
201
202 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
203 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
204 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
205 to the new source documentation.
206
207 - autoconf cleanup
208 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
209 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
210 - gui improvements:
211 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
212 - scrollable output window
213 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
214 - fix color of command output.
215 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
216 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
217 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
218
219
220 -------------------------------------------
221 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
222 -------------------------------------------
223
224 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
225 a lot of small improvements.
226
227 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
228 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
229 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
230 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
231 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
232 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
233 of the ortp receiver.
234 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
235 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
236 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
237 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
238 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
239 and reduces code size.
240
241
242 -----------------------------------------
243 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
244 -----------------------------------------
245
246 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
247
248 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
249 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
250 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
251 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
252 read/write operations are used).
253 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
254 certain circumstances.
255
256
257 -------------------------------------------
258 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
259 -------------------------------------------
260
261 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
262
263
264 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
265 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
266 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
267 too early on a loaded network.
268 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
269 future time by the --start_time option.
270 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
271 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
272 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
273 only the http receiver in this case.
274 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
275 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
276 - improved ortp timings.
277 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
278 gcc < 3.0.
279
280
281 -------------------------------------------
282 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
283 -------------------------------------------
284
285 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
286 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
287
288 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
289 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
290 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
291 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
292 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
293 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
294 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
295 rather than calling find(1). The server option
296 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
297 - documentation update
298 - man pages
299 - header file cleanup
300 - para_client code cleanup
301 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
302
303
304 ------------------------------------------
305 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
306 ------------------------------------------
307
308 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
309 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
310 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
311 is no longer needed).
312
313 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
314 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
315 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
316 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
317 in parallel.
318
319 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
320 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
321 sender" for more information.
322 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
323 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
324 http receiver.
325 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
326 senders.
327 - ogg timing improvements
328 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
329 - empty stream definitions work again
330 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
331 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
332
333
334 ---------------------------------------
335 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
336 ---------------------------------------
337
338 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
339
340 - audiod:
341 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
342 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
343 for more information.
344 - fix memory leak
345 - code cleanup
346 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
347 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
348 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
349 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
350 non-standard places
351 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
352 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
353 new command line option: --announce_time
354
355
356 -----------------------------------------
357 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
358 -----------------------------------------
359
360 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
361
362 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
363 (including none) filters for each supported audio
364 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
365 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
366 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
367 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
368 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
369 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
370 from stdin.
371 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
372 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
373 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
374 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
375 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
376 clients that play the same stream.
377
378
379 ------------------------------------------
380 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
381 ------------------------------------------
382
383 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
384 for the mysql database tool.
385
386 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
387 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
388 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
389 resulting binaries)
390 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
391 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
392 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
393 again.
394 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
395 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
396 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
397 information.
398
399
400 ---------------------------------------
401 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
402 ---------------------------------------
403
404 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
405 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
406
407 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
408 - cleanup of the build system
409 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
410 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
411 line utitlity
412 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
413 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
414 more information.
415 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
416 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
417 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
418 Default: "para_client pic"
419 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
420 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
421
422
423
424 ------------------------------------------
425 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
426 ------------------------------------------
427
428 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
429 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
430 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
431
432
433 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
434 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
435 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
436 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
437 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
438 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
439 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
440 libvorbisfile.
441 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
442 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
443 - documentation updates
444 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
445 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
446 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
447 playback time rather than streaming time
448 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
449 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
450 - switch from gzip to bzip2
451
452
453 ----------------------------------------
454 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
455 ----------------------------------------
456
457 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
458 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
459 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
460 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
461
462 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
463 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
464 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
465 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
466 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
467 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
468 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
469 than from stdin
470 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
471 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
472 mp3 files with invalid header information
473 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
474 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
475 - diffstats
476
477
478 ---------------------------------------
479 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
480 ---------------------------------------
481
482 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
483 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
484 stick to mp3...
485
486 - fix several memory leaks
487 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
488 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
489 rename your old database.
490 - rework ogg vorbis code
491 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
492 disabled
493 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
494 - simplified audio format API
495 - para_pob_ogg is gone
496
497 ------------------------------------
498 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
499 ------------------------------------
500
501 Let's slide gently into the new year.
502
503 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
504 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
505 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
506 README and FEATURES for more info.
507 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
508 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
509 race-free.
510 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
511 - improved help message for sl
512 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
513 perfectly ok.
514 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
515
516 -----------------------------------------
517 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
518 -----------------------------------------
519
520 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
521 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
522 enhancements went also in.
523
524 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
525 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
526 exists, rather than returning errors
527 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
528 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
529 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
530 no server is running
531 - si: report also server pid
532 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
533 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
534 - fix pic_add, hist
535 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
536 - many small fixes and cleanups
537
538 ---------------------------------------
539 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
540 ---------------------------------------
541
542 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
543 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
544 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
545 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
546 compatible in that respect.
547
548 Visible changes:
549
550 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
551 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
552 always work.
553 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
554 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
555 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
556 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
557 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
558 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
559 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
560 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
561

601 streaming software
602 - new dbtool commands (stradd, strq, strdel) for easy stream
