============================ CSOUND VERSION 6.01 RELEASE NOTES ============================

This new version has a large number of bug fixes (including clearing all tickets on SourceForge) as well internal changes to improve performance. Perhaps the biggest changes however is in the use of arrays. Many opcodes can now use array inputs or outputs, and the previous array opcodes have been widened to all rates as appropriate.

USER-LEVEL CHANGES

New opcodes:

o   midifilestatus (UNDOCUMENTED)

o   signum function

New Gen and Macros: None

Orchestra:

o   A number of small fixes have been made to the parser, such as
to then in i-rate, the boolean in until loop (#40), ...

Score: None

Modified Opcodes and Gens:

o   Fault opcode runs in its own thread

o   Many extensions to array opcodes, more flexible regarding i , k or a type

o   Opcodes in, fin, diskin, diskin2, vbap, vbap_move, vbapg,
vbapgmove,...  now accept array output argument

o   Opcodes out, fout accepts an array for input

o   pvs2tab now works with arrays as well (#52, #54)

Utilities: None

Frontends:

o   fixes to PD class and csound~

General usage:

o   Length of strings arbitrary

o   made tieflag and reinitflag per instance

o   Using an undefined variable no longer causes a crash

o   in lists of directories in environment values ; and : are both
allowed, with preference based on the operating system

Bugs fixed:

o   Issues in Multidimension arrays fixed

o   Some parser bugs fixed

o   Fixed bug in realtime-mode initialisation pass

o   rtjack reworked

o   ftload fixed

o   crashes in pset fixed

o   fixes in use of strings

o   fix arrays in UDOs

o   fix to strlen

o   fix bug in strsub

o   fix overwriting of arrays in assignment

o   fix subinstr

o   fix chnexport initialisation

o   fixed bug in setting system constants

o   stupid error in cell fixed

o   fixed ksmps inconsistency check

o   fix bug in string assignment

o   fixed strcat opcode

o   fixed sprintf bug

o   ftconv fix

o   fix bug in loscil and related opcodes

o   fixed issues on failure to compile Faust code

o   fixed framecounting in pvsfromarray

==================== SYSTEM LEVEL CHANGES ====================

System changes:

o   Fixed issues with error value for csoundGetControlChannel and
added new checks in channel tests to evidence channel registration
error.

o   pvs channels made threadsafe

o   A potential danger in calling csoundDestroy has been removed (#6)

o   integration of CSOUND_PARAMS to oparms(#23)

Internal changes:

o   improving cpu consumption of diskin2 in async mode

o   minor improvements in moogladder and statevar to avoid recalculation

o   urandom.i faster

o   Some memory issues fixed

o   implemented a workable (but not ideal) fix that allows using
array syntax with a-sigs (#43)

o

API

o   csoundStart() is now called if it has not been already

o   fixed moduleDestroy to only destroy engine instances for
CSOUND that is passed in; fixes Android crashing bug

o   ReadSco fixed to process f-statements correctly(#56)

Platform Specific

iOS

o   fixed MIDI Input

Windows

o   better handling of locales

o   CsoundObj: modified getInputChannelPtr to require
passing in the channelType (i.e. CSOUND_CONTROL_CHANNEL,
CSOUND_AUDIO_CHANNEL); previously getInputChannelPtr was hardcoded
for only control channels. This is a non-backwards compatible
change.  To update previous project, add
"controlChannelType.CSOUND_CONTROL_CHANNEL" when calling
getInputChannelPtr(#26)

o   added -source and -target settings when compiling java
interface wrapper; set to 1.6 for both source and target (#44)

OSX

o   better handling of locales

o   set the -mmacosx-version-min=10.6 flag when compiling to allow
running the build artifacts on 10.6 and up (note: also required
support libs to be compiled with -mmacosx-version-min flag)

Linux

o   thread-unsafe code to handle locales better
