Horizontal and vertical scrollbars now track and control the part of
the score being displayed.
10 Aug 2000: 0.5.4
Support for Mudela header information (title, composer, etc.)
(patch courtesy of Laurent Martelli)
Denemo keeps track of the present file name and allows you to do

(initial work done by Laurent Martelli)

22 Apr 2000: 0.5.3

Separate preferences dialog, and the settings made therein persist
through the use of configuration files.
Option for having Denemo immediately output what notes and chords
sound like as you enter them. (patch courtesy Brian Delaney)
Sanified dialog boxes - all have titles and hitting enter in a text
entry always does a reasonable thing.
Created a dialog for navigating directly to a measure by entering its
Applied patch from Roy Rankin, other miscellaneous bugfixes.
4 Apr 2000: 0.5.2
Denemo is now an official part of the GNU project.
Support for changing the key, clef, and time signature mid-staff. This
support is highly complete; when you enter a such an item, the program
does everything that you'd expect it to, including saving the change
and reloading it correctly.
Key signature indicators (both midstream changes and indicators of
the context at the leftmost measure) now take up an appropriate
amount of space rather than a hard-coded amount.
A tie connecting two notes that are not identical is treated by the mudela
importation and exportation routines as a slur.
26 Mar 2000: 0.5.1
Added tearoffs to the menus.
MIDI instrument now in staff properties.
Cleaned up and reorganized keyresponses.c.
One can now change the duration of an existing chord with shift-duration
Denemo will ask you to confirm if your actions will destroy a score
that hasn't yet been saved.
Help->List Keybindings exists; Help->About now does something.
Other miscellaneous bugfixes and improvements.
21 Mar 2000: 0.5.0
Denemo can now load the mudela files it produces. Thus, in a sense,
mudela can now be considered one of Denemo's native file formats.
Support for tenor and soprano clefs.
Support for MIDI playback. (It accomplishes this by exporting mudela,
invoking lilypond -m, and then invoking an external MIDI player of
the user's choice.)
1 Mar 2000: 0.3.5
The load function largely works. It smears out chords into arpeggios
right now and doesn't quite deal with empty measures correctly, but
expect this to be fixed in relatively short order.
Support for G_8 clef courtesy of Roy Rankin.
Supports tied notes and chords.
Display of accidentals is now much smarter.
Denemo now allots space to score items more intelligently -
it allows them to have leading space (e.g., for accidentals) and
a mudelaitem's minpixelsalloted field now accurately reflects how
much space it'll take up.
23 Feb 2000: 0.3.4
Denemo now beams music in a somewhat intelligent manner rather than
drawing all notes separately.
19 Feb 2000: 0.3.3
I split off the note-width-allocation algorithm into a separate function.
As a result of this, the main drawing loop now resembles what it was
Denemo now caches the x and y values of score objects rather than
recalculating them each run through the drawing loop.
A few other refinements that make for cleaner, faster code.
14 Feb 2000: 0.3.2
Rewrote sections of code to avoid all use of extern global variables.
Incorporated Ron Steinke's patch that improved the key signature dialog.
Also fixed the control-K bug he'd noticed.
Added support/distinction between major and minor keys.
7 Feb 2000: 0.3.1
Added more staff properties (including a staff name, which is
displayed on the score) as well as a dialog box for setting them.
Added functions for measure deletion and staff deletion.
Similarly, the user may now add new measures in the middle of the piece
rather than just the end.
If the user enters too many notes to the last measure of a piece,
Denemo will now automatically add an extra measure.
Simplified some internals and fixed a bug in the drawing mechanism.
Added support for dotted notes and rests.
Wrote the export-to-mudela function, which produces fully
typesettable mudela (tested against Lilypond 1.2.17uu1.)
3 Feb 2000: 0.3.0
New homepage and download area at http://denemo.sourceforge.net/
I've abandoned the fixed-measure width paradigm and rewritten the main
drawing loop such that the basic elements being drawn are the measures,
not the staves.
Sixtyfourth notes are thus no longer piled on top of each other, and
measures expand to accomodate them when necessary.
Nonetheless, simultaneous music correctly lines up vertically. (It no longer
handles multiple simultaneous time signatures, though, and will require
some fixing before it does again.)
Other results of this: the measures expand when asked to hold too many beats,
and the "red" indicators from 0.1.2 now work perfectly.
Some new stuff from Adam Tee, though his save patch is being kept separate,
at least for now.
24 Jan 2000: 0.1.2
Control-left and Control-right will now move the cursor around
Denemo calculates the number of measures it can fit in the display
and displays only those measures
Space between staves is now user-settable
New commands to insert a staff first in the list or last
Dialogs now open at the position of the mouse
The cursor is now color-coded! A green cursor indicates it should be
fine to add a note at the current cursor position; red indicates that
you're off the end of the measure. (Not yet perfect.)
Likewise, if you add too many notes to a measure, a red exclamation point'll
now be painted at the beginning of the measure. (Also not yet perfect.)
Adjacent tones in a chord are now staggered left-right when they're
painted rather than being painted on top of each other.
Moving the cursor "off" of the displayed part of the score now causes
Denemo to adjust the part of the score displayed.
Measure numbers are now displayed along the top of the current staff.
A double-bar-line is now shown at the end of the piece.
Some internal code-cleanups.
Gave up on the "all measures are the same width" design principle, though
the implementation still reflects it.
16 Jan 2000: 0.1.1
Adding staffs now works in a more intelligent manner -- the clef, key, and
time signature are set to be the same as the current staff.
Support for setting and changing the time signature
Support for user-adjustment of the width (in pixels) allotted to paint
each measure. (It is the same fixed number for all measures being
12 Jan 2000: 0.1.0
I've decided that Denemo now does enough stuff that I can stop numbering
releases in the 0.0.x's.
From here on in, the versioning will be conventionalized a bit: an odd
number in the minor version number will indicate a release is unstable,
an even number, stable. Don't expect to see a stable release number until
0.6.0 or thereabouts, though. :)
Support for block chords. This includes viewing, modifying, and deleting
Ledger lines for notes off of the staff are now displayed. Likewise when
the cursor is off of the staff.
6 Jan 2000: 0.0.7
Ability to deal with multiple staves
Support for setting and changing a staff's initial clef via a dialog box
Support for accidentals
Support for setting and changing the key signature via a dialog box
Note entry is now sensitive to the key signature and to accidentals from
earlier in the measure
16 Dec 1999: 0.0.6
Did autoconf/automake stuff
As such, there's a new file in the distribution called ChangeLog; I guess
I'll be putting a lot of this stuff there too.
Broke up draw.c into many files, each of them smaller.
11 Dec 1999: 0.0.5
Put in many of the hooks for working on scores with multiple staffs
Changed pixmaps such that they are held statically within the
functions that draw them
Put in many of the necessary hooks for key signatures, time signatures,
and changes therein
Came up with a new design concept for dealing w/ key, time, and clef
changes; see DESIGN for details
Made the Makefile much sleeker. :)
19 Nov 1999: 0.0.4
Added support for rests
Adjusted the pixmap code such that the xpm files are #include'ed and then
within the program by way of the create_from_xpm_d functions. This has
18 Oct 1999: 0.0.3
Added support for different note durations
The pixmaps are now Lilypond pixmaps (produced by mf-to-xpms with a
moderate amount of hand-tuning)
As a consequence of that, note stems are now written separately from
5 Oct 1999: 0.0.2
Added multimeasure support
Added (a mostly non-functional) menubar
Cleaned up keyresponses.c
27 Sep 1999: 0.0.1
