[354ca9]: TODO Maximize Restore History

Download this file

TODO    181 lines (109 with data), 5.3 kB

o get rid of aRts

o maybe use Phonon instead of aRts as soon as it is available
  (needs evaluation)

o use Qt-4 for streaming as soon as possible (with KDE-4)
  (needs evaluation)

o recording plugin: show current recording time in status bar

o use LADSPA

o automatic defragmentation of stripes

o support for sample rate conversion, libsamplerate

o use the host's native libaudiofile. current state:
	SuSE		-> builtin
	all others	-> native

o fix compiler warnings in MP3 decoder (since gcc-4.1)

o ALSA record/playback: also detect devices configured in the .asoundrc,
  and not only hardware devices

o find a better solution for deadlock when closing the current file while
  a plugin is still running, instead of refusing the request to close
  -> might vanish with qt-4

o crashes at startup when no aRts server can be connected
  (only seen on Mandrake-9, v0.7.3 or earlier?)

o replace "AF_SAMPFMT_xxx" with enum "SampleFormat::yyy" in WavEncoder.cpp,
  WavDecoder.cpp and PlayBack-OSS.cpp

o more precise handling of the playback pointer
  -> use the delay information from aRts

o function for "Edit/Selection/Insert at..." or a "goto position" function

o hourglass and process indicators for longer processes
  -> use a progress bar/dialog with a "Cancel" button and make it a modal
     window -> maybe this solves the problem with the deadlock when closing
     the file while a plugin is still running...

o ruler that shows the current cursor position as time

o display of the current position in playback mode

o audible/silent mode of tracks (speakers)
  speaker controls for "audible" mode

o dithering/noise shaping when loading/saving

o abillity to set recording start and stop times in advance
  (feature requested by John David Thompson, 2006-12-20)

o volume plugin: show a little "overview" for guessing the level

o volume plugin: implement a "normalize to maximum" button

o auto-detect pause and set markers, for splitting recorded stuff into several
  parts and then save them to disc as separate files
  (feature requested by Stefan Macher)

o virtual memory: multiple swap directories

o change from id3lib to taglib

o install a new_handler() for cases in which we run out of memory

o move undo classes into libkwave

o move KwavePlugin from libgui to libkwave

o implementation of locking, see SampleLock

o open file dialog: add a preview widget that shows info about the file
  and maybe has "playback/pause/stop" buttons

o fast playback mode, playback with facor 1.5x, 3x, 5x, 7x...
  -> look how noatun does that...

o support for compressed wav files, like those found on
  -> MPEG 3 is still not supported by libaudiofile

o TrackPixmap: implement usage of "extra_samples" for interpolated mode

o support for Spex codec:

o fileinfo plugin: auto-generate filename from "track - title"

o Filter: class needs to be tested

o MainWidget: re-enable accelerator keys for 0..9

o use a MenuManager in the plugins (e.g. sonagram)

o resample signal before inserting into a signal with a different sample
  rate (when doing copy/paste)

o optimized cut/paste, at zero-crossing

o amplifymax does not work
  -> normalizer ?

o amplifyclip does not work
  -> gstreamer/LADSPA ?

o feature "pulse train" is not yet implemented
  -> gstreamer/LADSPA ?

o SignalProxy1 implementation is very inefficient for simple data types
  like bool, char, int etc. Uses too much new/delete.

o check at program startup: does the help directory exist? If not, show
  a message and make a symbolic link

o document how to do an optimized build, for example:
  CFLAGS="-march=athlon-xp -mcpu=athlon-xp \
  CXXFLAGS=${CFLAGS} cmake ...

o speed up MP3 import by blockwise operation

o import/export of labels as meta info in codecs other than wav

o SonagramWindow::toSignal()

o rework of the FFTWidget

o bugfix: crash on "additive synthesis"
  -> gstreamer/LADSPA ?

o some commands do not work: fft, averagefft, distort
  -> gstreamer/LADSPA ?

o bugfix: channel mixer dialog causes segmentation fault -> disabled
  -> gstreamer/LADSPA ?

o use standard KDE accelerators (see KStdAccel)

o import of multi-channel ASCII files

o vertical zoom, maybe with right mouse button or zoom tool

o use namespace "Kwave" for all Kwave components

o splitting of i18n for kwave and each plugin

o use the KDE's clipboard

o support for KDE's session management

o fix bug in Fx->Periodic Silence (segmentation fault)

o macro recorder

o navigation buttons on the overview widget

o use MemoryManager for undo actions

o user selectable color scheme
  (feature requested by John David Thompson, 2006-12-20)

o problem with SignalWidget / XOR mode, fails on Nvidia
  -> vanished since last update, but keep this point as a reminder...

o switch to use float as sample_t (requires much work...)

o watch for new versions of Qt. maybe the Qt bug with submenues mentioned
  in libgui/MenuSub.cpp disappears somewhere in future...

o figure out how to work with exceptions:
  - works if ALL libraries use rtti and we compile with -frtti
  - does never work with --no-rtti
  - the program doesn't link under RedHat with -frtti
  => no rtti and no exceptions :-(
