2009-06-15  Marcus Meissner <meissner@suse.de>

* src/libmtp.c: synced to new libgphoto2 code.
* src/device-flags.h: dito.
* src/ptp.h: sync to upstream.
* src/ptp.c: dito.
* src/ptp-pack.c: dito.

The handles, the PTPObjectInfo and the MTP proplists
are now consolidated into "PTPObject"s.

This and abstraction and the resulting helper functions
allow implementation of easier dynamic operations like
I need for libgphoto2.

Some corner stones:

- PTPParams now contains the device flags itself.
  (from device-flags.h) This is needed due to
  ptp_object_want() needing to decide whether it can call
  GetObjPropList, and it makes it cleaner.

  So the ptp-bugs and device-flags handling are unified.

- PTPObjects are sorted by object handle. This allows binary
  search by handle.

- New generic helper functions.

  * uint16_t ptp_object_find (PTPParams *params,
    uint32_t handle, PTPObject **retob)
    binary searches the handle in the object list and returns
    a pointer to the object.

  * uint16_t ptp_object_find_or_insert (PTPParams *params,
    uint32_t handle, PTPObject **retob)
    binary searches the handle in the object list, inserts it
    if not there yet, and returns a pointer to the object.

  * uint16_t ptp_object_want (PTPParams *params, uint32_t handle,
    int want, PTPObject **retob)
    The most magic function, which does the "on demand" loading
    of objectinfos, mtp proplists (and more).
    want is a flag mask of PTPOBJECT_*_LOADED
    PTPOBJECT_CANONFLAGS_LOADED   (special canon flags)
    PTPOBJECT_MTPPROPLIST_LOADED  mtp properties for this object
    PTPOBJECT_DIRECTORY_LOADED    (only used by libgphoto2 currently)
    PTPOBJECT_PARENTOBJECT_LOADED this and storageid are
                                  interesting for directory based
    PTPOBJECT_STORAGEID_LOADED    and can be filled out by directory

  * void ptp_objects_sort (PTPParams *params);
    Sort the objects list if you did any modification of your own
    on it and the order of object handles might not be linear

- Multiple object information loading strategies are possible.
  libmtp uses getobjecthandles() /getobjectinfo() and
  getobjectproplist() loading strategies for initial setup. This
  stays of course, it will just fill out the PTPObject array.

  libgphoto2 now uses a per-directory getobjecthandles() /
  getobjectinfo() loading approach, and I will readd the
  getobjectproplist() approach.

  It is open what you chose to use here. For libmtp the "load all
  handles at startup" is good, dynamic loading is better for

  Only rule is: The objectlist must be in order of objecthandles!

2009-06-02  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* examples/hotplug.c: change the udev match rule from
  ATTR{dev}!="?*" to ENV{MAJOR}!="?*" at the suggestion of
  Alan Jenkins, this should be faster.
* src/libusb-glue.c: include config.h (Marcus Meissner found
  this is needed when you're not using iconv().)

A host of Windows fixes from
Carlo Bramini <carlo_bramini@users.sourcefore.net>
With this patch everything works fine with cygwin and
Debian 5.0. Unfortunately, with MSys the "make install"
still fails at the very last actions. It happens that
everything is re-linked (strange, but not a big problem)
and for some unknown reason it loops forever when executing
"examples/hotplug > libmtp.usermap". But hopefully the
simple "make" completes without errors.

* configure.ac:
  * iconv is now detected with autotools, this makes libmtp
    linkable on cygwin too (previously it was not).
  * the presence of Microsoft LIB.EXE is checked; if it is
    absent then the MSVC libraries won't be generated.
  * Added checking for some include files not available on
    Windows: arpa/inet.h, byteswap.h, sys/uio.h.
  * Check for presence of mkstemp: a replacement has been
    written for Windows.
* examples/Makefile.am: the creation of the links failed:
  I added source path and $(EXEEXT) extension for executables.
  This is tested and working with Mingw+MSys, Cygwin, Debian 5.0.
* examples/albumart.c: include sys/uio.h only if it's available.
* examples/trexist.c: u_int32_t does not exists, into almost all
  other parts libmtp is using uint32_t so I fixed it in that
  manner. (Same for u_int64_t/uint64_t).
* examples/getfile.c: dito.
* examples/pathutils.c: dito, plus rindex() does not exist under
  Windows, we must user strrchr() instead.
* examples/pathutils.h: fixes for prototypes changes made into
* examples/thumb.c: include sys/uio.h only if it's available.
* src/Makefile.am:
  * Several fixes because the check on the presence of LIB.EXE
    libmtp.sym is now prefixed by $(srcdir), this allows to
    configure libmtp outside the source tree in Windows too.
  * Libraries are put into LIBADD instead of LDFLAGS, this is the
    right place.
  * Previously the linker crashed because there was -ws2_32
    instead of -lws2_32.
* src/playlist-spl.c:
  * include sys/uio.h only if it's available.
  * include replacement for mkstemp() function.

2009-05-03  Richard Low <richard@wentnet.com>

* src/libmtp.c: add external property types just like file

2008-08-14  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: add some documentation to file and track
  listing functions to that it's clear that you have to
  inspect storage_id and parent_id in order to group files
  into storages and/or folders.

2008-07-31  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/music-players.h: several new devices and flags.

2008-06-24  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* TODO: updates.
* src/Makefile.am: bump interface to libmtp.so.8.0.0.
  It's NOT compatible!
* RELEASE libmtp 0.3.0 and let the apps developers have
  their apps fixed!

2008-06-22  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.h.in: removed the parenthandle argument from
  LIBMTP_Create_New_Playlist() and
  Now you must pass in parent ID from a metadata or
  filedata set. Use the respective field of the
  file, track, playlist or album struct to pass in
  a parent handle when calling these functions from
  now on. The bonus for changing your code is that you
  can now also pass in a storage_id with any metadata
  set! Consequently LIBMTP_Create_Folder() was
  altered to accept THREE metadata arguments: name,
  parent_id and storage_id. All calls to any of these
  functions in any referring code need to be altered to
  use this scheme. It should be quite self-evident for
  most code and easy to perform.
* src/libmtp.c: changed outlined above were implemented.
* examples/newfolder.c: consequental changes.
* examples/sendfile.c: consequental changes.
* examples/sendtr.c: consequental changes.
* examples/albumart.c: consequental changes.

* examples/tracks.c: correct misleading strings.

2008-06-15  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: only look for default folders in the
  root folder on the primary storage, even.

2008-06-14  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: only look for default folders in the
  primary storage, and only try to put files there
  if they are targetting the primary storage.

2008-06-08  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* configure.ac: check for the langinfo.h header.
* examples/connect.c: check charset properly.
* examples/sendtr.c: dito.
* src/music-players.h: new devices galore.

2008-06-03  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/device-flags.h: new device flag for devices that
  always need to have their device descriptor probed.
* src/music-players.h: generously add this flag to all
  SanDisk devices. The e280v2 and Fuze are known to be
  especially problematic.
* src/libusb-glue.h: helper macro.
* src/libusb-glue.c: massage "OS Descriptor" on demand
  when opening the device.
* src/music-players.h: detailed info and flags for the
  SanDisk Sansa players. More to be done, probably.

2008-06-02  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libusb-glue.c: refactor PTP_USB to use the raw
  device and its contained deviceinfo to store and
  retrieve the device flags. (This is starting to look
  object oriented...)
* src/libusb-glue.h: accessor functions to simplify
  switching on the device flags and increase the code
* src/libmtp.c: use the new accessor functions.

2008-06-01  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: use LIBMTP_Detect_Raw_Devices() and
  LIBMTP_Open_Raw_Device() inside
  LIBMTP_Get_First_Device() refactoring. Move
  params creation into this file.
* src/libusb-glue.c: move params creation away
  from here.

2008-05-30  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libusb-glue.c: unused variable.
* examples/detect.c: switch to using raw device
  interface for opening devices.

2008-05-28  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: internally using the raw devices to
  get a list of devices.
* src/ptp.c: sync to upstream.
* src/ptp.h: dito.
* src/ptp-pack.c: dito.
* src/libmtp.h.in: move raw device detection to use
  error codes. Add interface to open a raw device!
* src/libusb-glue.h: make the old device list internal,
  use raw device in interface for configuring USB.
* src/libusb-glue.c: fix up error messages. Move the
  raw device detection interface to use error codes.
* examples/detect.c: fix up error messages. Use error
  codes for raw devices.

2008-05-23  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: after sending a file, look up the
  resulting file metadata from the cache to make sure
  that parent_id is identical to that the file actually
  gets on the device. If root folder (0) is selected, we
  hardcode thing to 0xffffffffu to be used as parent,
  but it will probably end up being 0 for example.
  Also fix an issue with ptp_mtp_getobjectproplist()
  sometimes returning a NULL pointer while still
  claiming there are props in the list.
* src/libusb-glue.h: add a function to get the preferred
  playlist extension.
* src/libusb-glue.c: "written" variable in
  ptp_usb_sendreq() may end up uninitialized if
  ptp_write_func() fails. Initialize it to 0.
  Get the prefered playlist extension.

2008-05-18  Richard Low <richard@wentnet.com>

* src/device-flags.h: added
* src/music-players.h: ditto. Also set Samsung YH-999 to

  using the raw device detection internally as well.

2008-05-04  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.h.in: move useful filetype macros here so
  external programs can use them.

* examples/tracks.c: dito.
* AUTHORS: new contributor.

2008-04-27  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: recognize audio files as tracks, since this
  is what WMP does. (e.g. it sets playlength on movies
  to enable skip bar) also define macros for audio/video/both
  types and tidy up a bit.

2008-04-24  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.h.in: added preliminary interface for getting
  raw devices.
* src/libusb-glue.c: the implementation is all here!

  version 0.3.0.
* examples/hotplug.c: switch from using "info.bus" to
  using "info.subsystem" to identify USB events. (Marcus).
* src/libmtp.c: add parent_id to albums and playlists,
  based on a patch by Ali Shah.

  to include a "." (period).

2008-02-06  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libusb-glue.c: wait for response > 0 instead of > 2.

2008-01-28  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.c: LIBMTP_Get_Filemetadata() return metadata for
  folders (associations) too. There is really no reason why it
  shouldn't and it's good for use internally.
  LIBMTP_Get_Filelisting_With_Callback() will still not return
  any associations however. We want to use the folder functions
  for that.

2008-01-28  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libmtp.h.in: withdraw LIBMTP_Set_Object_Parent() function,
  no known devices will support this.

  and change object parents. Good when modifying the device
  as a file system, LIBMTP_Set_Object_Filename(),
* src/libmtp.c: implementation.

2008-01-27  Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>

* src/libusb-glue.c: re-read response from device until
  it atleast exceeds two bytes. This fixes a problem with
  the Samsung YP-U3 when populated with many, many songs.

2008-01-21  Richard Low <richard@wentnet.com>

* src/music-players.h: add Thomson Lyrca HC308A, remove

* src/libmtp.c: make libmtp use PTP_OPC_AlbumArtist on albums,
  instead of the (seldom present) PTP_OPC_Artist tag. Use both
  if both are
