Happy new year

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

The final release of the 0.2 series and of 2008 is out. Next milestone will be the 0.3 release. Thanks for all the great work this year and looking forward to an exciting 2009. George



Summer is here 0.2.16

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

After a very gray spring and June the sun is finally shining in Victoria. A lot of interesting projects related to Marsyas are happening and the mailing lists have been very active. By the end of the summer we plan to go to 0.3 version. We have been saving that change for something major but I decided to go ahead so that I manage to see version 1.0 before I retire :-). Have fun ....



Happy New Year and Report from the trenches

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

Happy new year to everyone, 2007 was a great year for Marsyas to a large extent thanks to the amazing contributions from many of you. Being a free and open source software framework we need all the help you can get from our community of developers and users and every question no matter how small in the developer or users mailing lists help us improve Marsyas. Thank you for your patience and support. 2008 is the 10th year anniversary of Marsyas and I would really love if I could get more people involved in our developer and user community. We realize that getting involved in a large open source piece of software like Marsyas can be difficult and intimidating at the beginning. To help encourage you to get involved we have a list of tasks that we need help with. They range in difficulty and time-required but we are confident we can find one right for you no matter what your programming experience or background might be. One of the core developers will mentor you through the process and will provide support and direction. Even if you have no programming experience we can still use your help for testing and improving documentation. If you are interested please either send an email to marsyas-developers (or if you don't want to publicize your interest directly to me). Include some brief information of what is your background, programming experience, and interest in Marsyas. There is no pressure for completing the tasks at any particular time and there is no minimum time commitment only your willingness to help is needed. Before finishing this email I would like to share with you some of the highlights of this year in no particular order: 1) Our new webpage (http://marsyas.sness.net) was significantly improved (many thanks to Steven). Since we started tracking traffic to it using Google Analytics in October 2007 we have had 2129 visits (approximately 700/month) by 1324 visitors from 64 countries. 2) We have approximately 290 downloads a month up from 23/month in 2003 3) The user and developer documentation has been greatly improved thanks to the tireless efforts of Graham 4) The Marsyas submission to the MIREX evaluation exchange performed very well and were 5-10 faster than any other submission. 5) The control lookup mechanism and linking were refactored and redesigned extensively (amazingly almost without breaking any client code) by the Portuguese invasion team resulting in significant improvements in performance. thanks and looking forward to a great 2008, George



0.2.13 (Last2007)

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

Hi everyone and best wishes for a happy new year. 2007 was a great year for Marsyas with a lot of new code added, documentation written and much more. Thanks to all of you for helping out. Subversion has made us really lazy with releases but I intend to release at least once a month next year. The last release of 2007 is 0.2.13 and we are already moving towards 0.2.14 in January 2008. happy holidays, George

Finally a release

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

Hi everyone, we finally managed to put together a release. There has been a lot of work in the past few months but we somehow kept using the svn repository and never bothered creating a relasease. Some of the highlights: much improved documentation (thanks to Graham), overall change in directory structure (thanks to Gustavo) and many others. Have fun, George



Happy new year and 0.2.10

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

Hi everyone, the last two months have been incredibly productive with the help of Gustavo and Luis (the port. invasion team) who unfortunately have left Victoria and returned to Portugal. They will keep contributing. The new release has significant changes related to the MarControlPointer mechanism that result in much more efficient handling of controls. In addition it contains peakClustering a voice separation algorithm based on Normalized Cuts. Happy 2007, George



Subversion release 400

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

Congratulations to Luis Gustavo Martins a member of the portugese invasion team for committing the 400 subversion release. Looking forward to subversion release 1000



New release 0.2.9

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:28 -0000

This new release includes support for both VisualStudio 2003 and 2005 and various incremental improvements. The next release 0.2.10 will contain a backward compatible but much faster control mechanism designed by Luis and Gustavo who are visiting me from Portugal. Take care, George Tzanetakis



New mrsLog release (0.2.5)

Mon, 17 Sep 2012 22:35:27 -0000

Hi everyone, the new release should compile under all usual OSes (Linux, OS X and Windows (Cygwin and Visual Studio) as well as a new configuration OS X(Intel). A new logging system (hence mrsLog) has been implemented. Different levels of logging messages can be enabled/disabled in configuration and a single log file is used. Various other small bugs and fixes. Enjoy, George
