Revision history for Perl suite MIDI-Perl Time-stamp: "2013-02-01 15:40:53 conklin" 2012-11-19 Darrell Conklin email@example.com * Release 0.83 * fixed GM patch 45 incorrect name: "Orchestral Strings"->"Pizzicato Strings" * added more explanatory error message in Opus.pm (track_count) * added a track->skyline() function 2010-12-23 Darrell Conklin firstname.lastname@example.org * fixed typo in %Lengths hash in Simple.pm 2010-02-14 Darrell Conklin email@example.com * maintainer -- DC has taken over as maintainer. Thanks to SB for his excellent module. * Release 0.82 * bug fix in Score.pm where events_r_to_score_r would destructively modify events * bug fix in Score.pm, when presented with two simultaneous events with the same note/channel, which led to unpredictable durations of score events, sometimes negative. * added grid quantization (to Opus, and Score) 2005-01-29 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.81 -- maintenance release. * No Perl changes -- just doc tweaks mostly. * Rearranged the dist's contents to be more modern-like. * Of course, more cowbell. 2002-08-21 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.80 -- just a docfix release, basically * Removing the out-dated Filespec.pod file. * To work around vstrings in Perl 5.6 (etc), MIDI::Simple volume specifications can now be expressed as V64 (etc), whereas previously you could only do v64. Bumping MIDI::SImple version up to 0.80. 2000-08-21 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.79 * Bungled the Makefile on the previous release! This time should work. 2000-08-21 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.78 * Fixed odd bug in MIDI::Score that would prematurely terminate a pending note on one channel if you started (or ended) a note with the same note number on a different channel. New logic assumes (safely, I think) that you can only have one note at a time per note-number per channel. (I.e., you can't start a C5 on channel 3, wait a second, start another C5 on channel 3, and have them both going at the same time. I think that if you start a C5 on channel 3, then start another, the second will implicitly end the first. Please do email me if you think this is non-standard behavior for a sequencer.) 2000-05-20 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.77 * Fixing an incidental bug in MIDI::Simple (which surfaces only in Perl 5.6, apparently). Thanks to Matt Burt (email@example.com) for finding the bug, as well as noting the fix. * Changed MIDI::Score::score_r_to_events_r and MIDI::Score::events_r_to_score_r (which were useful only in list context previously) to do something useful (and rather intuitive) in scalar context. 2000-05-14 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.76 * Noting my new email address. * MIDI::_dump_quote() was a bit over-broad in what string values it considered numbers (i.e., what things it didn't have to put quotes around). I've changed it to leave only integers unquoted. This shouldn't make any difference really, since if ever any Perl code (whether in MIDI-Perl or elsewhere) needs to treat a stringified numeral (whether integer or not) as a numeric value, conversion is automatic. Anyhow, almost all (absolutely all?) of the actual numeric arguments to MIDI::Event events are integers. 2000-03-05 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.75 * ChangeLog now goes recent-to-old, not old-to-recent * Changes in this version were mostly made in August 1999, but just never released: * A few optimizations to Event.pm's loops. * Opus.pm now does a little more sanity-checking, to avoid attempting reads of insane sizes, such as might be attempted in the case of parsing a mangled file. 1999-05-13 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.74 * Just made a few things friendlier to people using perl -w (warnings) * Did ya see my article on MIDI-Perl in /The Perl Journal/ #14? See www.tpj.com for back issues, or email me -- I might have it in some sort of electronic format. 1999-01-10 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.73 * Just some changes to the docs: Changed the MIDI homepage URL. Added the Langston reference. 1998-11-09 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.72 * Shigeaki Kobayashi <email@example.com> pointed out a bug in MIDI::Opus's $opus->draw that was making it always ignore its options hashref. Fixed. * More carps/croaks instead of warn/dies. 1998-11-04 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.71 * Docs for MIDI::Simple are more complete now. * An obscure bit of note_map's behavior changed. But you'd never know, because this is the first version that ever documented note_map at all. * Added relative octave specs: o_d3, o_u3. 1998-10-18 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.70 * Some stupid typos in MIDI.pm fixed. * MIDI::Simple greatly expanded and changed. Almost a total rewrite, in fact -- too many changes to explain. Docs are feeble, tho. * More modules use strict now. 1998-08-16 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.62: Hooboy! Third release in a 24-hour period! This time to fix a lame big in MIDI::Score. 1998-08-16 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.61: Feh. Forgot to re-comment out the debug code in MIDI::Simple 1998-08-16 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.60: Subtly destructive bug in MIDI::_dump_quote fixed. MIDI::Event::copy_structure didn't work; fixed. %MIDI::note2number and %MIDI::note2number were named backwards -- note2number actually mapped numbers to notes, and number2note mapped notes to numbers. It made no sense, so I reversed it. Ditto patch2number and number2patch! What was I thinking? Typos in %MIDI::note2number fixed. All the A#'s were "A#" instead of "A#3" or whatever. I also changed the "#" for sharp to "s", giving, e.g., "As3" instead of "A#3". This gives a representation compatable with MIDI::Simple's notation. But note that %MIDI::note2number doesn't contain all of the possible ways MIDI::Simple could let you represent a note -- just a (semi-quirky) subset of them. New module MIDI::Simple. Added MIDI::Event:: score subs, to support draw() and MIDI::Simple. Added MIDI::Opus::draw and supporting subs. 1998-08-14 Sean M. Burke email@example.com * Release 0.52: makefile fix. chimes example in MIDI.pm 1998-08-13 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org * Release 0.51: First CPAN release. Get it while it's hot!
