0.5.1 (2018-04-12)
------------------

Note: This release does NOT change the libsigrokdecode public C API in
incompatible ways. This means existing frontends should not require any
changes. However, individual PDs and their output changed, which may
require some adaptations on the user's side in some cases.

0.5.0 (2017-06-12)
------------------

Note: This release DOES change the libsigrokdecode public C API. This
means it is NOT backwards-compatible and frontends will need updates.

 * New supported protocol decoders:
   - ade77xx          Poly phase multifunction energy metering IC protocol
   - adf435x          Wideband synthesizer with integrated VCO

   - wiegand          Wiegand interface for electronic entry systems
 * Add support for the new query-based PD v3 decoder API.
   - Decoders using PD v3 API can benefit from both readability improvements
     as well as performance improvements. Up to 10x speedup has been measured
     in some situations (depends a lot on the decoder, the amount of data,
     the amount of edges in the signals, and the amount of oversampling).
   - The majority of all decoders have been converted to PD API v3.
   - For the time being, both APIs (2 and 3) will remain supported until all
     decoders have been converted to API version 3. Then, support for API
     version 2 will be dropped.
 * Add support for specifying the (assumed) initial pin states before the
   first sample that is being decoded. This can be set to 0/low, 1/high, or
   to "use the same value as in the first sample".
 * Add support for adding multiple instances of a decoder (bug #868).
 * Introduce a decoders/common facility for code shared between PDs (bug #804).
 * Supply metadata to all stacked decoders, not just low-level ones (bug #664).
 * Various Doxygen/documentation improvements.

 * srd_inst_decode(): Return SRD_ERR_ARG if unitsize is 0.
 * Print error messages when decoders fail load time checks (bug #704).
 * Fix multiple valgrind warnings (memory leaks and such).
 * Build system: Sort PD list alphabetically in "make install".
 * mdio:
   - Replace PD with a new implementation that also supports Clause 22 and 45.
   - Improve annotations slightly.
 * xfp:
   - Move various constants to common/plugtrx for reusability purposes.
 * sdcard_{sd,spi}:
   - Move various constants to common/sdcard for reusability purposes.
 * usb_request:
   - Drop hardcoded samplerate (workaround for the fixed bug #664).
 * spiflash:
   - Handle CS# transitions, allow variable-length transfers.
   - Handle "Fast Read Dual I/O" commands.
   - Add a "format" decoder option.
   - Implement Release Power-down / Device ID (0xAB) command (bug #845).
   - Remove hardcoded Macronix references.
   - Add initial FIDELIX FM25Q32 metadata/support.
   - Implement WRSR, RDSR2 commands.

   - Handle Program Change (message 0xCn).
   - Handle Channel Pressure / Aftertouch (message 0xDn).
   - Handle Channel Mode (message 0xBn mm where mm is 120 through 127).
   - Handle System Common messages (message 0xF1 through 0xF6), including
     full time code decoding.
   - SysEx decoding now decodes the 1-3 byte manufacturer field, payload
     is now displayed as hex.
   - 'undefined' fields now display the value (e.g. 'undefined 0xf4').
   - Add 'MSB' and 'LSB' to many control_functions entries.
   - Fix "trapped in state X" bug with handle_channel_msg_generic(),
     though this might be dead code.
   - Fix bug in sysex_manufacturer_ids; 1-byte manufacturers were not
     tuples due to missing comma.
   - Fix bug in SysEx state machine; 0xF7 now sent to handle_sysex_msg().
   - Annotations: Provide multiple string versions (shorter and longer ones).
   - chromatic_notes in list.py was off by 1 octave.
   - Handle "Running Status" where status byte can be omitted.
   - SysEx message can be terminated by status byte, not just EOX.
   - Handle SysReal messages that interrupt in-progress message transmission.
   - Identify and print garbage / truncated data.
   - Add 2 new annotations: text-sysreal-verbose and text-error.

 * onewire_link:
   - Replace PD with a new, improved implementation (bugs #666, #926).
   - Overdrive speed is now detected automatically.
   - Some no longer needed decoder options have been dropped.
 * Various decoders:
   - Fix some incorrect PD license metadata fields.
   - Fix typos, whitespace issues and random other cosmetics in some PDs.
   - Use consistent __init__() format across all PDs.
   - Move some duplicated code snippets/lists to decoders/common.

means it is NOT backwards-compatible and frontends will need updates.

 * New supported protocol decoders:
   - guess_bitrate  Guess the bitrate/baudrate of a signal
   - ir_nec         NEC infrared remote control protocol
   - ir_rc5         RC-5 infrared remote control protocol

   - xfp            10 Gigabit Small Form Factor Pluggable Module
   - z80            Zilog Z80 microprocessor disassembly
 * Add support for annotation rows, i.e. groups of annotation classes that
   are supposed to be displayed on the same GUI "row" together.
 * Add support for the new OUTPUT_BINARY feature, which allows PDs to output
   decoded data in various file formats (for loading and further processing
   in other tools, or for direct live piping into other tools).
 * Add support for the OUTPUT_META output type. This is used by PDs for
   reporting various data points to the frontends, allowing them to perform
   various post-processing and statistics tasks on them (e.g. simple counts,
   average/mean values, min/max values, and so on).
 * The OUTPUT_PROTO output type is now called OUTPUT_PYTHON.
 * All protocol decoders:
   - Bump the 'api_version' field of all decoders to 2. They are no longer
     compatible (and cannot be used with) older libsigrokdecode versions.
   - Updates to emit proper annotation classes, annotation sample numbers,
     and annotation rows for GUI usage (bugs #146, #148, #150, #151, #154,
     #155, #162, #147, #163, #168, #156, #309, and #344).

     can for example always show the longest annotation per zoom-level).
   - Extensive protocol information has been moved from the PDs to the wiki.
     Example: http://sigrok.org/wiki/Protocol_decoder:Uart
   - Use correct I²C / I²S names in user-visible texts (not I2C/I2S).

 * i2c:
   - Fix corner case that can yield issues when using triggers on LAs.
   - Drop unneeded 'addressing' option.

   - Various fixes to make the PD work better (or at all).
   - Fix the handling of optional channels.
   - Make the RESET# pin optional.
 * onewire_link:
   - Split 'reset' and 'presence' annotations.
 * pan1321:

   - Emit bit-exact annotations for the register fields that need them.
   - Fix a Python issue with duplicate keys in a dict (bug #191).
 * spi:
   - Either MISO or MOSI can be optional now, but not both (bug #175).
   - The CS# pin is optional now. If the pin is supplied, it is honored
     (decoding only happens when the pin is asserted). Otherwise decoding will
     use every CLK edge, regardless of CS# state or CS# existence (bug #152).
   - Rename the 'SCK' pin to the more common 'CLK'.
   - Output bit-exact annotations and data for use by stacked PDs.
   - Fix a bug occurring when only MOSI (but not MISO) was supplied.
 * transitioncounter:
   - Drop the obsolete 'transitioncounter' dummy protocol decoder.
 * uart:
   - Fix corner case that can yield issues when using triggers on LAs.
   - Use 'T' for stop bits and 'P' for parity bits (shortest annotations).
   - Add a data format selection option.
   - Annotations for RX and TX are now emitted in different annotation rows.
   - Either the RX or TX signal can be optional now (but not both).
   - Fix incorrectly displayed characters (bug #201).
   - Add support for OUTPUT_BINARY output for RX, TX, or both.
   - Output bit-exact annotations and data for use by stacked PDs.

     in the 'uart' protocol decoder itself via OUTPUT_BINARY).
 * usb_packet:
   - The 'usb_protocol' decoder has been renamed to 'usb_packet'.
   - Various bugfixes and decoding improvements.
 * usb_signalling:
   - Fix decoding of individual bits, sample in the middle of bits (bug #158).
 * libsigrokdecode API changes overview:
   - Add srd_session_new(), srd_session_destroy(), and a session context.
   - Add srd_session_metadata_set().

   - Please see the Doxygen API documentation for further details.
 * Protocol decoder API:
   - Metadata is passed to PDs at runtime now (not at decoder start).
     PDs now have a new optional metadata() method to receive it.
   - Output types are now registered via Decoder.register(), not Decoder.add().
   - The report() method is now obsolete. This kind of information will be
     passed to the frontends via the OUTPUT_META output type, allowing the
     frontends to perform various post-processing and statistics tasks.
   - PDs can now define BINARY_OUTPUT types via the 'binary' tuple.
   - PDs can now define annotation rows via the 'annotation_rows' tuple.
   - PD options are now a tuple of dicts. Each option is a dict containing
     the keys 'id', 'desc', 'def', and 'values'. Valid option types are
     UTF-8 strings, integers, and floats (bugs #254, #306, #317, #165).
   - Channels, optional channels, and annotations are now tuples (not lists).
   - Only load PDs of API version 2, all other versions are incompatible.
 * srd_inst_channel_set_all(): Report an error if not all channels required
   by the respective protocol decoder have been supplied.
 * Remove some internal limitations to max. 64 channels (bug #120).
 * Add a unit test suite framework for libsigrokdecode ('make check').
 * Add a protocol decoder test-suite framework for developers (tests/pdtest).
 * Various bugfixes:
   - srd_inst_option_set(): Properly return an error on exceptions.
   - srd_inst_option_set(): Fix setting of instance options, caused by class
     variable clobbering or releasing borrowed references (bugs #170, #174).

   - Fix issues with PDs not getting the samplerate (bugs #97, #132, #166).
   - Don't incorrectly decrease a borrowed reference (bug #177).
   - Fix various memory leaks and segfault conditions.
 * Build system:
    - Use pkg-config (not python3-config) to check for Python libs.
      This enables (better) libsigrokdecode cross-compile support.
    - PDs no longer have an extra Makefile.am, and 'make install' now
      happens via a Python script.
    - configure: Clearly mark required and optional libs.
    - Fix an issue with DESTDIR support (bug #215).
    - Add the HACKING file to the tarball.
