4 ------------------------------------------
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 afternoon 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
24 - no more restrictions on unique basenames.
25
26 - independent of mysql: The new self-contained object
27 storage layer (osl) replaces the mysql database.
28
29 - Lyrics support.
30
31 - Reliable audio file move/rename detection.
32
33 - the new osl-based audio file selector (afs) replaces the random,
34 playlist and the mysql selector of paraslash-0.2.x.
35
36 - paraslash-0.2.x streams are now called "moods". Writing
37 0.3.x-mood definitions should be both easier and more
38 powerful than writing 0.2.x-stream definitions.
39
40 - para_krell, para_slider, para_para_sdl_gui, para_dbadm have
41 been removed. The world is a better place without them. However,
42 para_gui is still there.
43
44
45 - afs tracks audio file selection also in playlist mode.
46
47 - few easy-to-use afs commands replace the many not-so-easy-to-use
48 mysql commands ((and are available also in playlist mode).
49
50 ----------------------------------------------
51 0.2.17 (to be announced) "isotropic threshold"
52 ----------------------------------------------
53
54 Mainly bugfixes and cleanups in this version which marks the end of
55 the 0.2.x series if no serious bugs show up after the release.
56
57 - mysql_selector: fix a locking bug.
58 - universal chunk queueing.
59 - dccp sender uses chunk queueing if write() returns EAGAIN (thanks
60 to Gerrit Renker).
61 - be more carful wrt. signed vs. unsigned argument passing.
62 - cleanup error.h and fix some references to invalid error
63 codes.
64 - update to gengetopt-2.21.
65 - update to ortp-0.13.1.
66 - autoconf: extend checks for headers, library functions and
67 compiler characteristics.
68
69 --------------------------------------
70 0.2.16 (2007-04-05) "neural discharge"
71 --------------------------------------
72
73 The main change in this release is the major audio format handler
74 cleanup which removes some similar/duplicate code and makes it easier
75 to implement plugins for other audio formats. Of course, the usual mix
76 of other improvements/changes/bugfixes also made it into the release.
77
78 - simplified audio format handlers (most of the handling functions
79 were moved one layer up to the virtual streaming system).
80 - para_server uses mmap to read audio files
81 - repositioning of mp3 streams is much faster, in particular for
82 jumping near the end of large mp3 files.
83 - permission flags DB_READ,DB_WRITE have been renamed to AFS_READ
84 and AFS_WRITE.
85 - fix a bug in para_filter that caused decoding of aac files
86 to start only after a few seconds.
87 - fix osx_writer hangs
88 - simplified dccp code (thanks to Gerrit Renker)
89 - the compress filter works also on big endian systems (ppc)
90
91 -----------------------------------------
92 0.2.15 (2007-02-16) "inductive resonance"
93 -----------------------------------------
94
95 Minor improvements, more documentation and a bunch of bug fixes.
96
97 - para_server: The server.users file is only read once on server
98 startup rather than for each connection
99 - mp3dec: Fix decoding of corrupt mp3 files
100 - afs (audio file sender) is now called vss (virtual streaming
101 system). Consequently, the permission flags specified in
102 ~/.paraslash/server.users have also changed: AFS_READ and AFS_WRITE
103 become VSS_READ and VSS_WRITE respectively.
104 - para_audiod/para_filter: Fix a bug that caused the last chunk
105 of audio data not being written under certain circumstances
106 - audiod: compute the difference of server time and local time
107 correctly
108 - para_server/para_audiod: Fix some memory leaks
109 - documentation improvements
110 - configure.ac: fix checks for para_krell
111 - new man pages
112
113 -------------------------------------------
114 0.2.14 (2006-10-15) "transient singularity"
115 -------------------------------------------
116
117 The only major enhancement of this version is the osx writer which completes
118 the Mac OS Port and was originally planned already for 0.2.13 but had to wait
119 until now for reasons beyond the scope of this changelog entry.
120
121 - new output plugin for Mac Os: the osx writer
122 - rename configure command line options from --enable-xxx-headers to
123 --with-xxx-headers and --enable-xxx-libs to --with-xxx-libs
124 - configure: new command line options: --with-mad-headers,
125 --with-mad-libs, --with-oggvorbis-headers, and --with-oggvorbis-libs
126 - some robustness fixes
127 - dymamic audio format recognition for audiod
128 - para_server: new command line option: --autoplay_delay
129 - para_audiod: new command line option: --clock_diff_count
130
131 ---------------------------------------
132 0.2.13 (2006-07-14) "sonic convolution"
133 ---------------------------------------
134
135 A bunch of new features and core changes.
136
137 - the new paraslash scheduler, short and sweet.
138 - Support for m4a/mp4 files via the new aac audio format
139 handler/filter (requires libfaad).
140 - each writer has its own command line parser, just like
141 para_recv and para_filter.
142 - para_client and para_audioc use the error subsystem
143 - writers are integrated in para_audiod (currently linux-only)
144 - para_client is integrated in para_audiod
145 - random/playlist selector: improved info strings
146 - new audiod commands: tasks, kill
147 - update to libortp-0.10.1
148 - para_fade: wake time defaults to 8 hours from now
149 - update to autoconf-2.60
150
151
152 ------------------------------------------
153 0.2.12 (2006-05-12) "oriented abstraction"
154 ------------------------------------------
155
156 Many user-visible changes in this release and lots of new
157 features:
158
159
160 - the new optional dccp sender/receiver. It uses the datagram
161 congestion control protocol. You'll need a fairly new kernel
162 for this.
163 - paraslash works on Mac OS X (thanks to Gerd Becker)
164 - para_play renamed to para_write
165 - modular output plugin design (writers) for para_write
166 - new file_writer output plugin for para_write
167 - compress filter speed improvements
168 - update to libortp-0.9.1
169 - update to gengetopt-2.17rc
170 - para_client no longer depends on libreadline (as the
171 code for the interactive mode was removed).
172 - gcc-2-95 is no longer a supported compiler. It may still
173 work, but it gets no more testing.
174 - the tarball no longer contains the screenshot images which
175 reduces its size quite a bit.
176 - configure: new command line options: --enable-mysql-headers
177 and --enable-mysql-libs
178
179 ------------------------------------
180 0.2.11 (2006-03-11) "atomic duality"
181 ------------------------------------
182
183 Here it is, the first paraslash release developed with git. There
184 are fairly many user-visible changes in this release. As two out of
185 the three "database tools" of paraslash don't use a database at all,
186 they are now called "audio file selectors" instead.
187
188
189 - the cdt command (change database tool) becomes chs (change
190 selector)
191 - no more colon separators: The syntax of some options of
192 para_audiod and para_filter have changed. Use --help for
193 more info (and some examples).
194 - update to gengetopt-2.16 (thanks to Lorenzo Bettini)
195 - switch from cvs to git (should've done that earlier)
196 - the new ipc subsystem
197 - new audio file selector: playlist
198 - para_server: the dopey selector is now called "random",
199 and is the default selector. Use the --selector option to
200 choose another selector at startup, or the chs command to
201 change the selector at runtime.
202 - X86_64 fixes (thanks to Steffen Klassert)
203 - para_play fixes
204
205
206 --------------------------------------
207 0.2.10 (2006-02-17) "cyclic attractor"
208 --------------------------------------
209
210 Huge documentation update, a scrollable window for para_gui, ortp
211 improvements, and of course many small fixes not mentioned here.
212 The diffstat below is rather misleading as most insertions are due
213 to the new source documentation.
214
215 - autoconf cleanup
216 - para_server also uses the new error subsystem
217 - lots of new documentation (UTSL)
218 - gui improvements:
219 - keysyms for cursor keys and for next/previous page keys
220 - scrollable output window
221 - new internal commands: scroll up/down, page up/down
222 - fix color of command output.
223 - ortp: the --chunk_time and --header flags are no longer needed
224 for para_recv/para_audiod as this information is now encoded in
225 each rtp packet sent by para_server.
226
227
228 -------------------------------------------
229 0.2.9 (2006-01-24) "progressive turbulence"
230 -------------------------------------------
231
232 Internal audiod receivers/filters, the new error subsystem and
233 a lot of small improvements.
234
235 - para_recv and para_filter are integrated into the para_audiod
236 binary, i.e. audiod no longer spawns a new process for
237 each receiver/filter. As para_recv and para_filter might be
238 useful as standalone programs, they still get built (linked
239 against the same object files that are also used for audiod).
240 - further ortp timing improvements should reduce the CPU usage
241 of the ortp receiver.
242 - improved audio grabbing. The 'grab' command of para_audiod
243 has its own set of command line options. Read the output of
244 "para_audioc help grab" for more info.
245 - oggdec: configurable input prebuffer size.
246 - the new error subsystem gives better error diagnostics
247 and reduces code size.
248
249
250 -----------------------------------------
251 0.2.8 (2006-01-02) "dynamic accumulation"
252 -----------------------------------------
253
254 The new modular filter design and the para_play-hangs bugfix.
255
256 - new executable: para_filter. It combines para_mp3dec,
257 para_oggdec and para_compress. It also adds a further filter
258 type, wav, that just inserts a wave header at the desired point
259 of the filter chain. All 'piping' is done in-memory (i.e. no
260 read/write operations are used).
261 - para_play: fix a stupid bug that caused it to hang under
262 certain circumstances.
263
264
265 -------------------------------------------
266 0.2.7 (2006-12-27) "transparent invariance"
267 -------------------------------------------
268
269 Not many user-visible changes but a fair amount of internal improvements.
270
271
272 - The http sender buffers data if it can not be sent
273 out immediately (because the socket is not writable). This
274 should prevent para_server from shutting down the connection
275 too early on a loaded network.
276 - para_play also prebuffers data if it is told to start at a
277 future time by the --start_time option.
278 - The return of para_recv: It combines para_ortp_recv and
279 para_http_recv. Use the --receiver option to switch between
280 the two. para_recv builds without libortp, but contains
281 only the http receiver in this case.
282 - update to ortp 0.8.1. As this ortp release contains incompatible
283 changes, para_recv-0.2.7 won't link against older ortp libs.
284 - improved ortp timings.
285 - use of gcc-extensions that #define away for non-gcc and
286 gcc < 3.0.
287
288
289 -------------------------------------------
290 0.2.6 (2005-10-29) "recursive compensation"
291 -------------------------------------------
292
293 Transparent session encryption (uses openssl's Alleged RC4 cipher),
294 the internal find command and several other improvements and cleanups.
295
296 - Encrypt the session if encryption is requested by the client
297 (default for para_client 0.2.6). This is backwards
298 compatible, so older clients can still connect to para_server
299 0.2.6. Use the new client option --plain to request an
300 uncrypted session (off by default, must be set to on in
301 order to connect to para_server 0.2.x with 0 <= x <= 5).
302 - para_server uses an internal function to locate audio files
303 rather than calling find(1). The server option
304 --mysql_audio_file_dir replaces --mysql_find_cmd.
305 - documentation update
306 - man pages
307 - header file cleanup
308 - para_client code cleanup
309 - para_gui: faster display of output of display commands
310
311
312 ------------------------------------------
313 0.2.5 (2005-10-13) "aggressive resolution"
314 ------------------------------------------
315
316 This release adds internal senders, i.e. no more external programs are
317 spawned for sending out the audio data. There are two different senders
318 available: The http sender and the ortp sender (former para_send which
319 is no longer needed).
320
321 The new sender code has a plugin-like design so it can be easily
322 extended should there be be any future need for supporting another
323 network streaming protocol. All senders are completely independent of
324 each other. In particular, the http and the ortp sender can operate
325 in parallel.
326
327 - new server command: sender to control senders at runtime.
328 Read the output of "para_server -h" and "para_client help
329 sender" for more information.
330 - para_recv renamed to para_ortp_recv
331 - new executable: para_http_recv, a simple command line
332 http receiver.
333 - major afs/mp3/ogg code simplifications due to internal
334 senders.
335 - ogg timing improvements
336 - fix several minor memory leaks (found by valgrind)
337 - empty stream definitions work again
338 - com_ne(): ignore errors on remove
339 - audiod: fix segfault on server restart
340
341
342 ---------------------------------------
343 0.2.4 (2005-09-21) "toxic anticipation"
344 ---------------------------------------
345
346 Several small improvements, fixes and the new grab command.
347
348 - audiod:
349 - new command: "grab" to grab the output of the stream reader
350 or any filters. Read the output of "para_audioc help grab"
351 for more information.
352 - fix memory leak
353 - code cleanup
354 - audioc: new command line option: --bufsize to specify a
355 buffer size different from the default size 8192.
356 - improved error diagnostics for para_play.
357 - new configure option: --enable-ssldir so search for openssl in
358 non-standard places
359 - sdl_gui: Make it look nice again for 1024x768
360 - server: report total size of memory allocated with sbrk by malloc,
361 new command line option: --announce_time
362
363
364 -----------------------------------------
365 0.2.3 (2005-09-01) "hydrophilic movement"
366 -----------------------------------------
367
368 Two new executables and major feature enhancements.
369
370 - audiod filters: It is now possible to specify arbitrary many
371 (including none) filters for each supported audio
372 format. This can be used e.g. for normalizing volume,
373 transforming or grabbing the audio stream, or for using
374 visualizers. Read the output of "para_audiod -h" for the
375 syntax of the new --filter_cmd option.
376 - new executable: para_play, a tiny alsa player. It
377 can play wave files or raw pcm (16 bit little endian)
378 from stdin.
379 - new executable: para_compress, a dynamic range compressor
380 intended to keep audio output at a consistent volume. Derived
381 from AudioCompress, http://trikuare.cx/code/AudioCompress.html.
382 - audiod: New option: --stream_delay. This can be used in
383 a local network to syncronize the audio output of all
384 clients that play the same stream.
385
386
387 ------------------------------------------
388 0.2.2 (2005-08-19) "tangential excitation"
389 ------------------------------------------
390
391 Mostly internal changes in this release, but also some new commands
392 for the mysql database tool.
393
394 - cleanup exec.c, fix para_exec bug
395 - compile time loglevel (log messages below the given level
396 won't be compiled in, which reduces the size of the
397 resulting binaries)
398 - new log macros that shorten the size of the source code.
399 - workaround a gcc-4.1 bug (?) that caused send_cred_buffer()
400 to send only zeros. With this workaround, para_audioc works
401 again.
402 - avoid gcc-4 warning: conflicting types for built-in function 'clog'
403 - new mysql commands: "rm" (remove entry), "mv" (rename entry) "ne"
404 (new entry), "snp" (set numplayed). Read the manual for more
405 information.
406
407
408 ---------------------------------------
409 0.2.1 (2005-08-15) "surreal experience"
410 ---------------------------------------
411
412 Here comes paraslash-0.2.1. It contains a couple of new features and,
413 surprise, only minor bug fixes.
414
415 - kill noisy mp3 debug message
416 - cleanup of the build system
417 - para_server and para_client directly use the crypto routines
418 of the openssl library rather than invoking the openssl command
419 line utitlity
420 - server/audiod: new option --user to switch to the given user
421 when invoked as root. Read the output of "para_server -h" for
422 more information.
423 - gui/sdl_gui: new option --stat_cmd to be used to retrieve the
424 status. Default: "para_audioc stat"
425 - sdl_gui: new option --pic_cmd to be used to download the picture.
426 Default: "para_client pic"
427 - audiod: 5 slots ought to be enough for everybody
428 - audiod: new status item: Uptime, kill hup command
429
430
431
432 ------------------------------------------
433 0.2.0 (2005-08-06) "distributed diffusion"
434 ------------------------------------------
435
436 After several month of increased development activity, paraslash-0.2.0
437 has arrived. It contains many new features and is much more
438 self-contained than the old 0.1.x series. Enjoy!
439
440
441 - para_server: fix hang on song change and crash on sighup.
442 Speed up mysql queries. The DIR_LIKE macro is gone.
443 - new executables: para_audiod, the local audio daemon that
444 starts playback (uses SCM_CREDENTIALS socket magic) and
445 para_audioc, the corresponding client.
446 - new executables: para_mp3dec/para_oggdec, two really teensy
447 decoders. para_mp3dec is based on libmad, para_oggdec requires
448 libvorbisfile.
449 - ovsend/ovrecv are capable of streaming ogg as well as mp3, so
450 they are now called para_send and para_recv respectively.
451 - documentation updates
452 - para_gui is themable. For now there is the default theme that
453 looks as before and the simple theme: blue and easy.
454 - gui: audio streaming is now handled by audiod. Time display shows
455 playback time rather than streaming time
456 - slider: update to libzmw-0.2.0
457 - para_krell: fix crash on server shutdown
458 - switch from gzip to bzip2
459
460
461 ----------------------------------------
462 0.1.7 (2005-04-18) "melting penetration"
463 ----------------------------------------
464
465 The main change in this release is clearly the oggvorbis rewrite,
466 but there are also lots of smaller changes. If you intend to use both
467 the mp3 and the ogg plugin, it is recommended to use software mixing,
468 e.g. the dmix plugin which is provided by ALSA.
469
470 - new executables: para_ovsend and para_ovrecv for sending/receiving
471 oggvorbis files via rtp. Requires the open rtp library. Get it at
472 http://www.linphone.org/ortp/
473 - rewrite of the ogg_vorbis core code
474 - configure detects libzmw and, if detected, includes
475 para_slider to the list of binaries to be built by make
476 - server stream writers read from their associated fifo rather
477 than from stdin
478 - slider: two new sliders, lastplayed and numplayed
479 - fix nasty double free bug which caused random segfaults in case of
480 mp3 files with invalid header information
481 - gui: new command line option: --stream_timeout=seconds to
482 deactivate a slot if it is idle for that many seconds (default=`5')
483 - diffstats
484
485
486 ---------------------------------------
487 0.1.6 (2005-03-05) "asymptotic balance"
488 ---------------------------------------
489
490 Only little user-visible changes in this release. Mainly bugfixes and
491 core code cleanup. This is probably the most stable version ever if you
492 stick to mp3...
493
494 - fix several memory leaks
495 - rename default name of mysql database from "music" to "paraslash".
496 Use para_server's --mysql_database option if you do not want to
497 rename your old database.
498 - rework ogg vorbis code
499 - make update command work on mysql servers with LOCAL_INFILE
500 disabled
501 - gui: improved stream I/O (slots)
502 - simplified audio format API
503 - para_pob_ogg is gone
504
505 ------------------------------------
506 0.1.5 (2004-12-31) "opaque eternity"
507 ------------------------------------
508
509 Let's slide gently into the new year.
510
511 - new: para_slider (not built automatically, type "make
512 para_slider" to build). A toy for those who always felt that
513 creating stream definitions is difficult. See screenshots,
514 README and FEATURES for more info.
515 - improved signal handling. Fixes server segfault on SIGHUP
516 for linux kernels newer than Aug 24 2004 and makes para_gui
517 race-free.
518 - reload database tool on SIGHUP
519 - improved help message for sl
520 - do not log "broken pipe" messages as errors. They are
521 perfectly ok.
522 - fix wrong error message on permission errors
523
524 -----------------------------------------
525 0.1.4 (2004-12-19) "tunneling transition"
526 -----------------------------------------
527
528 Bugfix release. As expected, 0.1.3 introduced a bunch of new bugs.
529 Hopefully, most of them got wiped out with this release. Some
530 enhancements went also in.
531
532 - improved error diagnostics for all commands
533 - stradd/picadd: overwrite previous contents if entry already
534 exists, rather than returning errors
535 - stradd: use current stream if invoked without args
536 - faster (and hopefully more stable) ogg-vorbis handling
537 - para_krell: reap children to avoid zombie-flooding in case
538 no server is running
539 - si: report also server pid
540 - server: don't busy-loop if dbtool reports only invalid files.
541 - gui: CTRL+C works again, fix stream_read command line option
542 - fix pic_add, hist
543 - fix mysql dbtool startup in case no database exists
544 - many small fixes and cleanups

546 ---------------------------------------
547 0.1.3: (2004-12-10) "vanishing inertia"
548 ---------------------------------------
549
550 Starting from this release, the database tools are integrated in the
551 server binary. This decreases server startup time, reduces code size
552 and speeds up database commands. However, the layout of the underlying
553 mysql database changed only slightly and 0.1.3 should be backwards
554 compatible in that respect.
555
556 Visible changes:
557
558 - If mysql is not detected at compile time, or fails to init
559 at runtime, fall back to the dopey database tool which should
560 always work.
561 - para_dbtool and dbtool.conf are gone. All mysql specific
562 options are read from server.conf and are prefixed by 'mysql_'.
563 - new command: cdt (change database tool)
564 - new command line option: dbtool (choose startup database tool)
565 - The name of current stream is now stored in the database,
566 so paraslash remembers its current stream when restarted.
567 - new command: csp (change stream and play)
568 - para_gui also reports current database tool and server uptime
569
570
571 -------------------------------------------

573 -------------------------------------------

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

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