The first big change after releasing 0.6 was to move from svn to git. SourceForge offers git since a while, but does not provide any tips how to do the transition. Fortunately it is a popular topic though. I used svn2git for the main conversion. I fixed the author tags from svn commit messages . . . → Read More

Finally after a long time, I managed to release a 0.6 of buzztard. So far only one regression was found and bml-0.6.1 was released to fix it.

A few things happened before the release still. At first after updating my distro, I made a lot of changes to avoid deprecated gtk+ api. For now . . . → Read More

Over the last 2 month I did quite a bit of work on the GStreamer side. Right now we’re working on 0.10 and 0.11 in parallel. I worked on the audiovisualizers and opencv elements in 0.10. I added a freeverb port to 0.10. In 0.11 I updated the controller susbsystem. If is now a . . . → Read More

This month I focused on testing for the next release. My free time for the project was a big short anyway, as my family move to our new home and I had quite some janitorial work to do.

One lesson learned for the start. Some time ago I had problems with tests going crazy . . . → Read More

After lots of changes I have switched the code permanently to the new sequence model. It saves about 170 lines of code in the sequence-page source. There is some potential to save more though.

I also did more work on state persistence. A song now contains more information (selected machines, pattern, options) and these . . . → Read More

Another month with good progress. I’ve started with the undo/redo parts in the sequencer view. Most of the edits are handled now. I am still stuck with one problem though.

In the begining of the month I finished the new treeview models. There were a couple of corner cases I did not handled yet. I did some thinking about the remaining model, but did not yet write any code for it. Instead I did some code review of the whole project leading to numerous . . . → Read More

After last month spectrum analyzer work, I also looked at the volume meters again. Handling the updates is a bit tricky as I need to sync them to the audio playback. Now I have optimizations in place to skip updates when the meter is zero or maxed and has not changed. This is actually . . . → Read More
