0.5.2-11 [2000-05-28]

 * included config.h in each source file (except the plugins)
 * export to ASCII for multi-channel signal (multi-channel import has
   still to be done, currently only mono)
 * fixed many memory leaks and inconsistent delete operations (e.g. used
   "delete" instead of "delete[]")
 * included support for (and tested with) the error detection and memory
   debugging tool "Insure++ Lite 4.1" (./configure --enable-insure=yes ...)
   -> thanks to ParaSoft Corporation for making this limited version of
      the tool available (
 * SignalWidget uses three layers for drawing, speeds up the redraws
   after mouse selection by about factor 14(!!!) on my system :-))

0.5.2-10 [2000-05-21]

 * some minor bugfixes in the Makefiles
 * save the kwave.spec and include it into the source archive, this
   lets "rpm -ta kwave-x.x.x-x.tar.gz" work
 * wrote a new README file, moved Martin's version to README.OLD
 * RPM_OPT_FLAGS are appended to the compiler options, this lets
   pentium optimizations work :-)
 * shows a message box if loading of a file failed

0.5.2-9 [2000-05-19]

 * list of recent files is synchronized across all toplevel windows
 * fixed dozens of memory leaks, missing ASSERT constructions, missing
   variable initializations and possible divisions through zero
 * Help menu aligned to the right side (MenuRoot now is able to process
   the special command "#separator")

0.5.2-8 [2000-05-18]

 * replaced all occurances of sprintf with snprintf, strcpy with strncpy
   (in 92 places) !
 * doesn't show any zoom factor if no signal is loaded
 * handling of channel add/delete: selection/speakers are shifted
 * changed some variables/parameters to "unsigned" (simplifies range checks)
 * beautified this file
 * beautified the whole source code according to my favorite coding style.
   -> thanks to the developers of the "Artistic Style" package,
      astyle-1.11.4-1 made good work :-)
 * fixed that annoying flicker in the help/about dialog
 * checking for sizes of char, short and int at configure time
 * will not be used (obsolete, should be removed from libkwave)
 * MessagePort will not be used (obsolete, should be removed from libkwave)
 * multiple toplevel windows are possible
 * made X toolkit parameters work (especially "-geometry")
 * bugfix concerning loading/saving 8 bit .wav-files (always unsigned !)
   - made use of a combination of signals/slots and string messages
   - hierarchical processing: commands are are forwarded "upwards"
     until they reach a TopWidget
   - the TopWidget (highest level) dispatches the comands and forwards
     them to the lower levels

0.5.2 [2000-04-24]

 * rpm package should now be installable without conflicts and compile
   without any previous installation of kwave
 * removed the "${KDEDIR}/share/doc/HTML/default" directory from the rpm
   so that it doesn't conflict with the already existing one
 * shift+Home/shift+End selects from the current left/right position
   up to the start/end of the signal
 * bugfix in display of signal: signal is no longer inverted
 * selectrange() works now
 * the zoom factor combo box reflects the current "real" zoom factor
 * some bugfixes in menu handling / cleanups
 * complete rework of zoom and offset handling:
   - simple poly-lines instead of lowpass interpolation if zoom factor
     has less than 10 pixels per sample
   - lowpass interpolation if more than 10 pixels per sample
 * bugfix in KWaveApp: now sets to this if it was null before,
   now doesn't crash if it loads a file specified at cmdline

0.5.1-4 [2000-04-16]

 * >>> now compiles and runns under RedHat 6.1 / Halloween IV <<<
   >>> as well as under SuSE 6.2                              <<<
 * version info of is set to the package's version
 * bugfix in plugins/template/ will not create .moc files on
   make distclean and other targets
 * compiler flags are passed through to plugin compilation
 * compiling with --no-rtti. This was necessary to compile against the
   kde libraries of RedHat that seem to contain no rtti. As a side effect
   all warnings on linking programs/libs disappeared :-)
 * configure-parameter --enable-debug has effect again
 * >>> ASCII import and export works now (mono only) <<<

   were lost during Martin's changes
 * changed shortcut for mixpaste from CTRL-SHIFT-X to CTRL-SHIFT-C

 * changed filenames to reflect class names
 * one class per file is now the standard
 * stripped leading "Kwave" in Classnames for most Classes

1999-12-10 (by

 * fixed a nasty bug in SignalManager::save that caused crashes on
   several positions in the program and libstdc++

 * bugfix: SignalManager::writeWavChunk now doesn't destroy the signal's
   data while saving
 * make distclean in the projekt root directory also removes zero-length
   files, *.orig, *.rej and *~ (just makes cleaner than before)
 * symbolic links to Makefile, and in the plugins
   directory are deleted with "make distclean" and rebuilt on "make"
   (changes in the referenced Makefiles in the template directory will not
   be reflected thousand times when creating a patch with diff)

 * improved support for debugging accessible through
 * "configure --enable-debug=yes" (-g and -DDEBUG compiler flags)

 * Introduction of SignalManager class for multiple channel management

0.29.5 [1998-12-25] (by Martin Wilz <>)

 * Just a fix for an annoying bug while zooming out

0.29.4 [1998-12-22] (by Martin Wilz <>)

   wished but since 0.29.2 has a destructor with parameters accidently left
   in, and so does not compile on all systems -> here we go again...

 * reworked selection routines into a new class, code is still rather
   confusing, but seems to work
 * added checkmark functionality again
