  • More preparations for Qt5 configure build.
  • Standard scalable format (SVG) and MIME type icons support for session files (*.lscp) is now being added.
  • Preparations for Qt5 migration.
  • Added include to shut up gcc 4.7 build failures.
  • Make(ing) -jN parallel builds now available for the masses.
  • Fixed Makefile.in handling of installation directories to the configure script eg. --datadir, --localedir.
  • Made lookup of translation files work inside a Mac OS X bundle.
  • Minor Mac OS X compilation error fix.
  • Debugging stacktrace now applies to all working threads.
  • Made lookup of translation files more robust on Windows.
  • Fixes for cross compiling and building for Windows with configure and make.
  • libX11 is now being added explicitly to the build link phase, as seen necessary on some bleeding-edge distros eg. Fedora 13, Debian 6.
  • Moving from old deprecated Qt3'ish custom event post handling into regular asynchronous signal/slot strategy.
  • Sampler channel and instrument file requester support for other than GIG engine instrument files (*gig; *.dls) has been added, making roads for the newer SFZ and SF2 engines instrument files (*.sfz; *.sf2).
  • General standard dialog buttons layout is now in place.
  • Initial widget geometry and visibility persistence logic has been slightly revised as much to avoid crash failures due to wrong main widget hidden state.
  • General source tree layout and build configuration change.
  • Automatic crash-dump reports, debugger stack-traces (gdb), back- traces, whatever, are being introduced as a brand new configure option (--enable-stacktrace) and default enabled on debug build targets (--enable-debug).
  • Attempt to fix broken instrument list model/view on Qt >= 4.6.
  • Device parameter spin-box default maximum has been set higher: now at a magic 24-bit limit (16777216) instead of older 16-bit (65536), possibly fixing bug #136.
  • LADISH Level 1 support has been added: SIGUSR1 signal trap just makes it a shortcut to File/Save.
  • MIDI Device Status menu is disabled when no MIDI device exists; a menu separator has been added.
  • Window manager's close button was found missing from the Devices and Instruments widgets when on Qt >= 4.5, now fixed.
  • MIDI activity indicator on channel strips and MIDI device status widgets is now implemented as a flashing green LED, instead of a lame green solid background :).
  • Global configuration state is now explicitly saved/committed to disk when View/Options... dialog changes are accepted and applied.
  • Czech (cs) translation added (by Pavel Fric).
  • 2009-08-01 New release cycle.

    Git Access

    Qsampler's already assumed in beta stage of development. However, the bleeding-edge source is available from the sourceforge's public Git (Git) repository that can be checked out through anonymous (http) access with the following instructions:

    1. Install liblscp

    git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/qsampler/liblscp liblscp-git

    cd liblscp-git

    make -f Makefile.git
    [sudo] make install

    cd ..

    2. Build qsampler

    git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/qsampler/code qsampler-git

    cd qsampler-git

    make -f Makefile.git
    [sudo] make install

    Then you may run qsampler and you'll see what's cookin' :)

    Note: These instructions are for Linux of course. But win32 support is also in the box. If someone want to try...
