2015-07-18 LinuxSampler 2.0.0 had been released after six years of development! Check the release notes for a detailed review of what's new with LinuxSampler and friends.
2015-06-11 The Mac installer was broken on latest OS X 10.10 Yosemite. This had been fixed today. Get the latest snapshot for Mac with Yosemite support now.
2015-04-29 A new documentation site has been launched: - This separate page dedicated to manuals, tutorials and other kind of articles for the LinuxSampler project, is using a new solution to write and maintain such articles with a minimum of effort. Be invited to help us writing documentation for LinuxSampler and friends! As one of the first topics, this site is now hosting an introduction to the new NKSP Real-Time Instrument Script Language. The long-term plan is to move all documentation of this project from our www server to that new site.
2015-01-18 For the Mac users out there: We finally have a convenient installer for the OS X version of LinuxSampler. This is already integrated in our automatic build system. So from now on all daily snapshot builds for Mac are automatically built with an installer. By default the installer will install all components (LinuxSampler stand-alone application, VST and Audio Unit plugin version of LinuxSampler, QSampler, Fantasia, GigEdit and command line tools. At step "Installation Type" you can however also override the default installation and select which components to install.

2016-04-25 schoenebeck
* Added new C++ API class "ScriptVMFactory".
* Instrument Scripts: extended parser issues to provide not only first line and first column, but also last line and last column of issue (thus marking the precise span of the issue within the source code).
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn7).
2016-04-24 schoenebeck
* Instrument Scripts: Fixed line numbers on parser error/warning messages.
* Instrument Scripts: Added output of precise column on parser error/warning messages.
* Shut up some irrelevant errors of parser generating shell scripts.
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn6).
2016-04-22 schoenebeck
* Instrument script classes now exported with the liblinuxsampler C++ API.
* Added new API method ScriptVM::syntaxHighlighting() which provides a convenient syntax highlighting backend for external instrument script editor applications.
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn5).
2016-04-20 schoenebeck
* Automake: set environment variable GCC_COLORS=auto to allow GCC to auto detect whether it (sh/c)ould output its messages in color.
* Fixed behavior of built-in script function "ignore_event()".
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn4).
2016-04-19 schoenebeck
* All engines: Active voices are now internally grouped to "Note" objects, instead of being directly assigned to a keyboard key. This allows more fine graded processing of voices, which is i.e. required for certain instrument script features.
* Built-in script function "play_note()": Added support for passing special value -1 for "duration-us" argument, which will cause the triggered note to be released once the original note was released.
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn3).
2016-04-10 schoenebeck
* All engines: Implemented scheduler for delayed MIDI events and for suspended real-time instrument scripts.
* Real-Time instrument scripts: Implemented support for built-in "wait()" function's "duration-us" argument, thus scripts using this function are now correctly resumed after the requested amount of microseconds.
* Real-Time instrument scripts: Implemented support for built-in "play_note()" function's "duration-us" argument, thus notes triggered with this argument are now correctly released after the requested amount of microseconds.
* Real-Time instrument scripts: Fixed crash which happened when trying to reference an undeclared script variable.
* Real-Time instrument scripts: Script events were not cleared when engine channel was reset, potentially causing undefined behavior.
* All engines: Attempt to partly fix resetting engine channels vs. resetting engine, an overall cleanup of the Reset*(), ConnectAudioDevice(), DisconnectAudioDevice() API methods would still be desirable though, because the current situation is still inconsistent and error prone.
* Bumped version (2.0.0.svn2).
2016-04-06 schoenebeck
* Removed unnecessary dependency to libuuid (originated by libgig's usage of it).
* Debian packaging: Updated build dependencies and description, and assigned as maintainer of this package.

* Script Editor: Added support for liblinuxsampler's NKSP parser backend for displaying parser errors and warnings directly within the source code (for now simply errors cause a red background color at the relevant location, and warnings a yellow background color; error text / warning text is not displayed yet).
* Bumped version (1.0.0.svn4).
2016-04-22 schoenebeck
* Script Editor: Some color tweaks (using now same text colors as on the NKSP refrence documentation website).
* Bumped version (1.0.0.svn3).
2016-04-22 schoenebeck

* Bumped version (1.0.0.svn2).
2016-04-15 schoenebeck

* Bumped version (1.0.0.svn1).
