0.4.0 (2017-06-12)
* Updated build requirements:
- A C++ compiler with full C++11 support (g++ >= 4.8.1 or clang++ >= 3.3)
- cmake >= 2.8.12
- libglib >= 2.28.0
- glibmm-2.4 >= 2.28.0
- Boost >= 1.55:
- New requirement: libboost-serialization.
- Dropped requirement: libboost-thread.
- libsigrokcxx >= 0.5.0 (libsigrok C++ bindings)
- libsigrokdecode >= 0.5.0
- Dropped support for Qt4; PulseView now requires Qt5.
* Add the concepts of sessions and views to PulseView:
- Sessions represent individual files/device instances.
Each session is represented as a tab in PulseView.
- Views are different data representations of one specific session.
For example, different views of a session can have different zoom levels,
can be scrolled to different positions, etc. etc.
Each view is a dock window within the respective session's tab.
- The view docks can be repositioned, resized and extracted out into their
own individual windows.
- Sessions and views are partially saved and restored when PulseView
exits/starts. Not all information is restored yet, though (e.g. decoders).
- Add CTRL-q to close PulseView, CTRL-w to close a session tab (bug #899).
* Add support for saving analog data to .sr files.
* Analog signal traces:
- Add initial implementation of a vertical grid for analog traces.
- Add a dropdown for the vertical resolution setting.

0.3.0 (2016-01-29)
* PulseView now uses libsigrokcxx (the libsigrok C++ bindings library).
* Update to use the new APIs of libsigrokcxx 0.4.x and libsigrokdecode 0.4.x.
* Add support for vertical scaling of analog and logic traces.
* Add a "Save selection range as..." feature. This allows the user to select
a subset of the data (using the cursors) and save that into a file in the
libsigrok session format (*.sr).
* Remember the directory of the last file that was opened/saved.
* Automatically save and restore (upon PulseView shutdown/startup):
- the window state (size, position)
- the most recently used device
* Implement pinch-zoom support (useful e.g. on tablets).
* Implement an "always zoom-to-fit" feature.
* Implement a "sticky scrolling" feature, using hotkey 's' (bug #121).
* Show icons for active triggers on the right-hand side of the window.
* Cursors: Also show the frequency in addition to distance/time (bug #502).
* List available serial ports (for serial-based devices) in a drop-down.
* Add support for trace groups. An arbitrary number of traces can be grouped
together, which allows for dragging them around as a group and re-ordering
traces within the group. Hotkeys: group (CTRL+g), ungroup (CTRL+u).
* Use either alternating gray values as trace background color, or the
trace's own color (slightly modified). This behaviour is configurable
via the menu or the 'b' hotkey.
* Show a vertical marker at the trigger point (bug #685).
* Sampling bar: Show the total sampling time in a tooltip.
* Trace/Decoder popups: Close the popup when the ENTER/RETURN key is pressed.
* Improve horizontal arrow-key scrolling step size.
* The viewport can now be dragged vertically as well.
* Add support for placing arbitrary markers (double-click at the desired
position in the ruler area) with arbitrary name/content. Markers can be
removed via the delete key (or the right-click context menu).
* Show full device names in the device drop-down.
* The device selector combobox is now a split button. Clicking on a device
name will open the "Connect to Device" dialog which allows for manual
device selection. Clicking on the small arrow will open a drop-down with
all autodetected devices.
* The main menu is now hidden by default, pressing ALT will make it appear,
pressing ALT or ESC will hide it again.
* Add an Export menu item, which can export the data in various formats.
* Add an Import menu item, which allows data import of various formats.
* Support specifying input files + formats on the command-line (-i and -I).
* Update the possible samplerates/samplecounts widgets when needed.
* Various UI fixes and improvements (colors, font sizes, clipping, etc).
* Add support for the SR_CONF_{POWER_OFF,PROBE_FACTOR} config keys.
* Include the device / filename in the window title (bug #244).
* Keyboard shortcuts:
- Add space as a shortcut to start/stop an acquisition.
- Add shortcuts for the open/save menu items (CTRL-o, CTRL-s).
- Add trace group shortcuts: group (CTRL+g), ungroup (CTRL+u).
- Add 's' as shortcut for enabling/disabling sticky scrolling.
- Add 'b' as shortcut for colored / alternating-gray trace backgrounds.
* Add a few missing toolbar buttons.
* Provide tooltips for decoder annotations (which show the "full" annotation
text regardless of zoom-level).
* Improvements to work (better) with Qt5 (Qt4 remains supported as well).
* The whole code-base has been converted to C++11 (dropping the use
of various Boost functionality in favor of std:: equivalents).
* Build system:
- Always build with -std=c++11.
- Auto-detect Qt4 or Qt5. If both are available, Qt5 will be selected
unless the cmake option FORCE_QT4 is set to TRUE.
