 * input/vcd: Abort with an error upon > 64 channels (bug #194).
 * output/vcd:
   - Fix output for more than 8 channels.
   - Output timestamp only once per change.
   - Minor whitespace changes of output files to make them more readable.
   - Remove bogus $dumpvars and $dumpoff commands.
   - Various bugfixes and portability fixes.
 * output/csv:
   - Remove a 64-channel limit (bug #193).
   - Fix an issue resulting in incorrect trailing commas (bug #230).
   - Fix an issue where all timestamps would be zero (bug #35).
 * Rename 'probe' to 'channel' in all places, since libsigrok supports a lot
   of gear where 'channel' fits better (bug #259).
 * Change TRIGGER_SLOPE from SR_T_UINT64 to SR_T_STRING.
 * Windows support improvements:
   - Use libserialport (+other backend code) to fix serial devices (bug #91).
   - Add serial source addition/removal backend code (bug #206).
   - Add backend code for properly supporting USB based devices.
 * Fix various memory leaks in the backend code.
 * Fix some incorrect parsing of floating point numbers in the strutil code.
 * Fix various endianness issues in backend code and drivers (bug #266).
 * Fix a few issues related to incorrect parsing with non-ANSI-C locales
   (bugs #271, #272, #273, #274).
 * Fix an issue related to data being sent to the libsigrok session which
   was not a multiple of the unit/sample size (bugs, #289, #290).
 * Drop the es51922 DMM parser (replaced by the generic es519xx parser).
 * libsigrok session files:
   - The libsigrok session file format (for *.sr files) has changed, and the
     file format 'version' field is bumped to 2. Older libsigrok versions will
     not be able to handle version 2 files, but new libsigrok versions can
     handle both version 1 and version 2 files. New libsigrok versions will
     always write/output version 2 files.
   - Fix an issue resulting in left-over temporary files (bug #276).
   - Fix an issue with analog probes (unsupported) in *.sr files (bug #277).
   - Fix an issue with missing samplerate from session files (bug #275).
 * Improved API documentation.
 * Major API changes (overview):
   - Change various function/macro names related to the probe->channel rename.
   - Change various functions due to the new channel group feature.
   - All enums in the public API now have names (e.g. 'enum sr_mqflag').
   - The lib no longer defines names with _t suffix (POSIX reserved).
   - New API calls:
      - sr_session_dev_list()
      - sr_session_save_init()
      - sr_session_append()
      - sr_config_commit()
      - sr_output_new()
      - sr_output_send()
      - sr_output_free()
   - Obsoleted and removed API calls:
      - sr_filter_channels()
   - 'struct sr_session' is now opaque (contents shouldn't be used directly).
   - Please see the Doxygen API documentation for further details.
 * Build system:
   - Switch to a non-recursive automake setup (fewer files, faster builds).
   - configure: Clearly mark required and optional libs.

0.2.2 (2013-11-04)

0.1.1 (2012-05-30)
------------------

Note: This release does NOT change the libsigrok API.

 * The 'saleae-logic' driver (which depends on the Saleae firmware), has
   been replaced with the new 'fx2lafw' driver, which uses an open-source
   firmware for Cypress FX2 chips which is also named 'fx2lafw'.
   Details: http://sigrok.org/wiki/Fx2lafw
   This new driver (+ firmware) currently supports the following devices:
     - ARMFLY AX-Pro
     - Braintechnology USB-LPS
     - EE Electronics ESLA100
     - EE Electronics ESLA201A
     - Robomotic MiniLogic
     - Robomotic BugLogic 3
     - Saleae Logic
     - USBee AX
     - USBee SX
     - All Cypress FX2 eval boards with stock Cypress VID/PID, including:
       - Lcsoft Mini Board
       - Braintechnology USB Interface V2.x
   Only acquisition with 8 probes is supported so far. Support for 16 probes
   and support for analog signal acquisition (on devices which have these
   capabilities) will be added later.
 * ASIX SIGMA driver:
   - Add support for the ASIX SIGMA2. This requires the latest version of
     the SIGMA/SIGMA2 firmware files.
     Details: http://sigrok.org/wiki/Firmware
   - Various bugfixes.
 * ZEROPLUS Logic Cube LAP-C (16032): Fix a segfault.
 * udev file: Add entries for Robomotic BugLogic 3, Velleman PCSU1000,
   Ideofy LA-08, ARMFLY AX-Pro, and Braintechnology USB Interface V2.x.
 * The zlib dependency has been removed (no longer needed).
 * Fix compiling with "Homebrew" (Mac OS X).
 * libsigrok now expects firmware files in $prefix/share/sigrok-firmware by
   default (was $prefix/share/libsigrok/firmware before).
 * Fix a Makefile.am bug which caused the generated ChangeLog files being
   accidentally deleted upon 'make distclean'.
 * ChronoVu LA8 input file format: Improve autodetection of the file format.
   We now only accept files of the size 8388613 bytes (all LA8 files have
   exactly this amount of bytes).

0.1.0 (2012-04-17)
------------------

 * Initial release.
