5
6Release 1.9.0 (unreleased):
7
8    - Use CommonCrypto/CommonDigest instead of OpenSSL libcrypto. (toby)
9
10    - Add SHA256 checksums in addition to MD5, SHA1 and RIPEMD160. (afb)
11
12    - New "patch.type gnu" for GNU patch, similar to "build.type gnu"
13      for GNU make. Only makes a difference for BSD patch and BSD make.
14
15    - Update the FreeBSD package, drop the old Fedora/Ubuntu packages.
16      (MacPorts now requires BSD, but objc/Foundation is now optional)
17
18    - Don't use "make -j1" for build.jobs=1, but prefer "make" instead.
19      (afb in r57998)
20
21    - Add new "use_xz yes" port option to allow distfiles in xz format.
22      (afb in r57827)
23
24    - Archivemode now uses build_arch to create and extract archives.
25      This is a step in the direction of enabling binary distribution.
26      (snc in r58977)
27
28Release 1.8.1 (2009-09-28 by jmr):
29
30    - Installer error messages now display properly even from the Snow Leopard
31      MacPorts dmg. (jmr in r56448)
32
33    - 'fetch.type svn' no longer requires the installation of the subversion
34      port as of Snow Leopard. (toby in r56160; raimue in r56162)
35
36    - Updated manpages and 'port help' output (ryandesign in r56472, r56473,
37      r56474; blb in r56666, r57048, r57131)
38
39    - Fixed syncing using the daily tarball. (#21034, toby in r56889)
40
41    - Fixed 'port load' (#21128, raimue in r57055)
42
43    - Improved error message when an expression on the command line does not
44      match any ports (jmr in r57026)
45
46    - Stopped recording the completion of the install phase in the
47      statefile, which led to errors if the port was uninstalled but the work
48      dir was not cleaned, and the port was then installed again.
49      (jmr/raimue in r57801, 57820)
50
51Release 1.8.0 (2009-08-28 by jmr):
52    - There is now a 'build_arch' variable, available in portfiles and
53      configurable in macports.conf, which sets the CPU architecture that
54      ports should be compiled for (when not building universal). Its default
55      is the same as that of the Apple-supplied /usr/bin/gcc.
56      (#19874, jmr in r53217,r53386,r53420,r53494,r53860,r54236)
57
58    - MacPorts base now works on and has appropriate default settings for
59      Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard. (#19874, toby/mww/jkh in r38271,r40060,
60      r40836,r43976,r52397)
61     
62    - MacPorts now requires Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger or later. (Panther is not
63      just "unsupported", it really won't work.)
64
65    - The universal_sysroot and universal_target keys have been removed from
66      macports.conf. These settings are now handled automatically.
67      (toby in r52324)
68
69    - Added a 'replaced_by' portfile option. This causes upgrade to deactivate
70      the current port and install the port specified by this option. This
71      also allows ports to be renamed. Upgrade accepts a --no-replace option
72      which disables this behaviour. (#20157, jmr in r54378)
73
74    - The upgrade action now accepts --force and --enforce-variants options.
75      The former causes ports to be rebuilt even if they are not outdated, and
76      the global -f option no longer has this effect (it had too many effects
77      already). The latter causes ports to be rebuilt if the requested
78      variants do not match those installed (even if they are not outdated).
79      (#20156, jmr in r54376)
80
81    - Dependencies can be satisfied by ports that are installed but not
82      available in the ports tree (useful for testing uncommitted ports).
83      (jmr in r52075, r52160)
84
85    - Ports that are installed but not available in the ports tree no longer
86      cause an error when running commands like 'port clean installed'. They
87      are skipped and a warning is printed. (#19253, jmr in r50865)
88
89    - Selfupdate no longer disables readline support unless readline is found
90      in /usr/local, which has historically caused failures.
91      (#19035, jmr in r50868)
92
93    - Uninstalling a port that is not installed now produces an informational
94      message rather than an error. (#18984, jmr in r53709)
95
96    - Added a 'conflicts' portfile option. Conflicting ports will be detected
97      during dependency calculation. (#18794, blb/jmr in r51525)
98
99    - 'port selfupdate' now explicitly states precisely what it does. (#18512)
100
101    - Operating system and architecture information is now shown in debug
102      output. (#18435, raimue in r46669)
103
104    - Fixed a bug that could break some symlinks to man pages. (#18302)
105
106    - Switched to a more efficient algorithm for looking up port information
107      in the index, which makes many operations faster.
108      (#18259, jmr/blb in r47110)
109
110    - MacPorts base now tries to avoid using commands that come from ports, so
111      that a broken port can't break the base code. (#18149)
112
113    - Deleting all the contents of a portfile option no longer unsets the
114      option entirely. (#17865, toby in r44901)
115
116    - Removed the code that upgrades from the old DarwinPorts filesystem
117      layout. Trying to upgrade to 1.8.0+ from a version older than 1.5.0 will
118      produce an error message saying you need to install 1.7.1 first.
119      (#17619, jmr in r53260)
120
121    - port(1) now reports its version as dotted-decimal rather than floating
122      point. (#17420)
123
124    - Dependencies are now always obtained by parsing the Portfile and not
125      from the PortIndex, since the latter can't provide expanded variables
126      like $prefix which may be used in path: depspecs. (#17182)
127
128    - Newline characters in long_description can no longer cause receipt
129      corruption. (#16619, blb in r50663)
130
131    - Now unlocking the filemap when it is not in use. This allows e.g.
132      'port contents' to be run while another port instance is performing
133      installs. Note that running more than one simultaneous port instance
134      that will modify the registry can easily fail, though hopefully
135      without corrupting anything. (#16246, jmr in r51133)
136
137    - Removed some irrelevant debug output that was being printed when a port
138      failed. (#16203, jmr in r53706)
139
140    - Added new depends_fetch and depends_extract options, for dependencies
141      that are needed to fetch or extract the port, respectively.
142      (#15161, jmr in r51780)
143
144    - Packages (including the one for MacPorts base) now correctly indicate
145      that they can only be installed on the root volume.
146      (#14809, jmr in r53250)
147
148    - Using an alternative fetch or extract type now adds appropriate
149      dependencies automatically, e.g. 'use_zip yes' adds a dep on unzip, and
150      'fetch.type svn' adds a dep on subversion. (#13981, jmr in r43782)
151
152    - port(1) should now exit with an appropriate status code when an error is
153      encountered. Use the -p option to continue despite errors.
154      (#13918, jmr in r53704)
155
156    - Proxy information can now be obtained from System Preferences and from
157      macports.conf. The older method using environment variables no longer
158      works out of the box on Leopard due to changes that Apple made to the
159      default /etc/sudoers. (#13158, blb in r47194)
160
161    - Improved handling of malformed variant definitions.
162      (#12596, jmr in r50719, r50721)
163
164    - Cope a little better with missing receipt files. (#19540, jmr in r51138)
165
166    - Fixed a major memory leak in the filemap code.
167      (#12022, pguyot in r51419)
168
169    - Improved the logic for determining whether phases can be skipped. This
170      fixes the specific problems of being unable to build packages of ports
171      that are installed, port not running specific phases (e.g. build)
172      when told to if the port is installed, and inactive dependencies being
173      rebuilt instead of simply activated. (#10881, #16260, jmr in r50490)
174
175    - When archive mode is enabled, ports will no longer be rebuilt if an
176      archive is available. (#10785, jmr in r50416)
177
178    - Activating a port will now first deactivate any other version of the
179      same port that is already active. (#10571, jmr in r53711)
180
181    - Added a 'license' portfile option, which is displayed in 'port info'
182      output. (#7493, jmr in r50801)
183
184    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
185
186    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
187      (raimue in r48558)
188
189    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (raimue in r48222-48223)
190
191    - port -i option has been removed (blb in r48218)
192
193    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (raimue in r48217)
194
195    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
196      instead (raimue in r48125)
197
198    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney/jmr in r43726)
199
200    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
201      longer in the PortIndex (raimue in r47253)
202
203    - MacPorts can now perform fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
204      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
205      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
206      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
207
208    - MacPorts can now automatically drop privileges so as to avoid running as
209      root whenever possible. To enable this, pass the desired user to run as
210      to configure with the --with-macports-user option. (gsoc08-privileges)
211
212    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
213      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
214      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
215      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
216      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
217      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
218
219    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
220      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
221      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
222      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
223      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
224      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
225      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
226      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
227      (gsoc08-privileges)
228
229    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
230      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
231      command would be "./configure
232      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
233      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
234
235    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
236      default (#15434, raimue)
237
238    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
239
240    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
241
242    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
243      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
244      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
245      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney in r44340)
246
247    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
248      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
249      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney in r44362)
250
251    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
252      (#17477, perry)
253
254    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
255      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
256
257    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
258      set/unset. (#12563, perry in r46938, jmr in r53371)
259
260Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
261    - Trailing slashes are stripped from the prefix passed to configure, which
262      prevents incorrect mtree violation warnings. (#13789)
263
264    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
265
266    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
267      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
268      variants) (#17762)
269
270    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
271      (#18521, ryandesign)
272
273    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
274      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
275
276    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
277      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
278      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
279      available port. (jmr in r46052)
280
281    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
282
283    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
284
285    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
286      automatically (r45614, raimue)
287
288    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
289      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
290
291    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
292      is being installed (#13141)
293
294Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
295    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
296      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
297
298    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
299
300    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
301
302    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
303
304    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
305
306    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
307      --nitpick is used (#14799)
308
309    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
310
311    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
312
313    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
314      phases (#11897)
315
316    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
317      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
318
319    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
320      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
321      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
322      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
323
324    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
325      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
326      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
327      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
328      in r38683)
329
330    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
331
332    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
333      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
334      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
335
336    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
337      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
338      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
339      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
340
341    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
342      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
343      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
344      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
345
346    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
347      (#15577, afb in r37501)
348
349    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
350
351    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
352      running (raimue)
353
354    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
355      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
356      jmr in r37217, r37255)
357
358    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
359      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
360      r37121)
361
362    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
363      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
364
365    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
366
367    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
368      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
369
370    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
371      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
372      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
373
374    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
375      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
376      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
377
378    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
379      jmr in r36745)
380
381    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
382      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
383
384    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
385      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
386      r36679, r36687, r36688)
387
388    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
389      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
390
391    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
392      #16233)
393
394    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
395
396    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
397      ryandesign in r36708)
398
399    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
400
401    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
402      r35806, r35808)
403
404    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
405      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
406
407    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
408      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
409
410    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
411
412    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
413
414    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
415

417
418    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
419
420    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
421      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
422
423    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard

427    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
428
429    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
430      r33940, r33941)
431
432    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
433
434    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
435
436    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
437
438    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
439
440    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
441
442    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
443
444    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
445
446    - Add `port platform` info action that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
447
448    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
449
450    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
451      destroot (mww in r31954).
452
453    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
454      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
455
456    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
457      (eridius in r32525).
458
459    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
460      (eridius in r32514).
461
462    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
463
464    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
465
466    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
467      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
468
469    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
470      (jmpp in r32336).
471
472    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
473
474    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
475
476
477Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
478
479    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
480      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
481      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
482      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
483
484    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
485      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
486
487    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
488
489    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
490      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
491
492    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
493      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
494      (#10651, jberry in r31139, r31140).
495
496    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
497      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
498      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
499      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
500
501    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
502
503    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
504      multiple files (mww in r31028)
505
506    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
507
508    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
509
510    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)
511
512    - Auto-mode for number of parallel build threads (if number of jobs is set to "0") (r30739)
513
514    - Add option use_parallel_build [yes|no] to declare if a port can be built in parallel (r30714).
515
516    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
517
518    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
519      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
520
521    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
522      (eridius in r30396).
523
524    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
525
526    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
527      due to coreutils, .libs
528
529    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
530
531    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
532
533    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
534
535    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
536
537    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
538
539    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
540
541    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
542      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
543
544    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
545
546    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
547
548    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
549
550    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
551
552    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
553
554    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
555
556    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
557
558    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
559
560    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
561
562    - Add group code for Python 3.0
563
564    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
565
566    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
567      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
568
569    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
570
571    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
572
573    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).
574
575    - Elias Pipping's GSoC2007 work: merge.rb on his personal /users/pipping svn dir.
576
577
578Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
579
580    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
581      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
582      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
583
584
585Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
586
587    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
588      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
589
590    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
591      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
592
593    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
594
595    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
596      (mww in r27199).
597
598    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
599
600    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
601
602    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
603
604    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
605      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
606
607    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
608
609    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
610
611    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
612
613
614Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
615
616    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
617      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
618      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
619      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
620      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
621
622    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
623
624    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
625
626    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
627      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
628      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
629      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
630      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
631
632    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
633
634    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
635      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
636
637    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
638
639    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
640      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
641
642    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
643      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
644      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
645      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
646      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
647      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
648
649    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
650
651    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
652
653    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
654
655    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
656      to detect problems between required and negated variants
657      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
658
659    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
660      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
661      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
662      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
663
664    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
665      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
666
667    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
668      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
669      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
670
671    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
672      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
673         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
674         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
675      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
676      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
677      (jberry r25795).
678
679    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
680
681    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
682      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
683      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
684
685    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
686      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
687
688    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
689      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
690
691    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
692      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
693      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
694      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
695      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
696      (boeyms in r25310)
697
698Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
699
700    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
701
702Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
703
704    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
705
706    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
707      This allows information about variants to be displayed (e.g. dependencies).
708      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
709      (eridius r25255).
710
711    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
712
713    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
714      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
715      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
716
717    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
718      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
719
720    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
721      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
722      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
723      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
724      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
725      (boeyms r25110)
726
727    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
728      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
729      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
730      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
731
732    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
733
734    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
735      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
736
737    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
738      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
739
740    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
741
742    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
743      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
744
745    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
746      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
747      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
748      (jberry r25146)
749
750    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
751         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
752         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
753         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
754           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
755           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
756
757        Example:
758
759            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
760                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
761            }
762
763        (jberry r25147)
764
765    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
766      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
767
768
769Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
770
771    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
772      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
773      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
774      it differently.
775
776    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
777      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
778      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
779      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
780      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
781
782    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
783      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
784      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
785
786    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
787
788    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
789
790    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
791      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
792
793    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
794
795    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
796
797    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
798      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
799      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
800
801    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
802      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
803
804    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
805      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
806
807    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
808      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
809
810    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
811
812    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
813      (pguyot r24273).
814
815    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
816      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
817      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
818
819    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
820      This work is in progress. (jberry)
821       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
822       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
823         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
824
825    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
826      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
827
828    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
829      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
830
831    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
832      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
833
834    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
835
836    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
837
838Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
839
840    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
841      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
842      (jberry r24151).
843
844    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
845      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
846      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
847      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
848      (pipping r24148).
849
850Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
851
852    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
853      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
854
855    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
856      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
857
858    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
859      for submitter information.
860      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
861        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
862        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
863            - PORTSRC
864            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
865            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
866          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
867       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
868
869    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
870      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
871
872    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
873      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
874      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
875      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
876
877    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
878
879    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
880      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
881
882Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
883
884    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
885      (pipping in r23343).
886
887    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
888      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
889
890    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
891      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
892      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
893
894    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
895      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
896
897    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
898      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
899      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
900
901    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
902
903    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
904      r22313).
905
906    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
907      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
908      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
909      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
910
911    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
912      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
913
914    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
915      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
916
917    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
918      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
919
920    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
921      r23967)
922
923
924Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
925
926    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
927      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
928
929    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
930
931    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
932      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
933
934    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
935
936    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
937
938    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
939      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
940
941    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
942
943    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
944
945    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
946      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
947
948    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
949      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
950
951    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
952      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
953      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
954
955    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
956
957    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
958      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
959
960    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
961      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
962
963    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
964      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
965
966    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
967
968    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
969
970    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
971      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
972
973    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
974
975    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
976
977    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
978
979    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
980      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
981
982    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
983      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
984
985    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
986
987    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
988
989
990Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
991
992    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
993      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
994
995    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
996
997    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
998      code. (pguyot)
999
1000    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
1001      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
1002
1003    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
1004      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
1005
1006    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
1007      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
1008      /usr/local. (pguyot)
1009
1010    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
1011
1012    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
1013      (josh_root, blb)
1014
1015    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
1016      are modified. (pguyot)
1017
1018    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
1019      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1020
1021    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
1022      variable. (pguyot)
1023
1024    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
1025      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
1026      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
1027
1028Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
1029
1030    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
1031
1032    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
1033      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
1034
1035    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
1036      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
1037      SVN. (pguyot)
1038
1039    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
1040      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
1041
1042    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
1043      (jberry)
1044
1045    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
1046      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
1047
1048    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
1049
1050    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
1051
1052    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
1053
1054    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
1055       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
1056       * mention interactive and batch modes
1057       * document extensions to info command.
1058
1059    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
1060
1061    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
1062      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
1063      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
1064
1065Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
1066
1067    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
1068      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
1069      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
1070
1071    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
1072      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
1073
1074    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
1075      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
1076
1077    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
1078
1079    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
1080
1081    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
1082      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
1083
1084    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
1085      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
1086
1087    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
1088
1089    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
1090      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
1091
1092    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
1093
1094    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
1095      (jberry)
1096
1097    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
1098      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
1099      (landonf)
1100
1101    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
1102      installed. (jmpp)
1103
1104    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
1105      project path. (pguyot)
1106
1107    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
1108      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
1109
1110    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
1111      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
1112
1113    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
1114      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
1115
1116    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
1117      (olegb)
1118
1119    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
1120      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
1121
1122    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
1123      iterating). (jberry)
1124
1125    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
1126      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
1127      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
1128
1129    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
1130
1131    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
1132      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
1133      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
1134      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
1135      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
1136      shoot yourself. (jberry)
1137
1138    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
1139      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
1140
1141    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
1142      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
1143
1144    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
1145
1146    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
1147      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
1148        several bug fixes.
1149      * cleaned up the code.
1150      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
1151        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
1152        reported creations).
1153      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
1154        overwritten.
1155
1156    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
1157
1158    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
1159      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
1160      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
1161
1162        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
1163          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
1164          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
1165
1166        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
1167          input following any commands given as arguments.
1168
1169        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
1170          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
1171          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
1172            #!/usr/bin/env portf
1173
1174        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1175
1176        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1177
1178        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1179          interactive/batch mode.
1180
1181        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1182
1183        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1184          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1185          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1186
1187    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1188      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1189      (jberry).
1190
1191    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1192      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1193
1194    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1195      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1196      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1197
1198    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1199      (pguyot)
1200
1201    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1202
1203    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1204      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1205      (jberry)
1206
1207    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1208      MacOS X. (mww)
1209
1210    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1211      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1212      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1213      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1214      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1215      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1216      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1217      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1218      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1219      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1220      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1221
1222Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1223
1224    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1225      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1226      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1227      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1228      fat, configure as follows:
1229        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1230                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1231
1232    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1233      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1234      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1235
1236Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1237
1238    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1239      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1240      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1241        port uninstall vim @1.0
1242      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1243      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1244
1245    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1246      destroot, too. (mww)
1247
1248    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1249      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1250
1251    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1252      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1253      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1254
1255    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1256      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1257      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1258
1259    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1260      groups of ports.
1261      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1262      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1263
1264      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1265        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1266
1267      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1268      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1269      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1270      The selectors are:
1271      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1272      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1273      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1274
1275    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1276      ports or groups of ports.
1277      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1278
1279    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1280      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1281      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1282      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1283
1284    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1285      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1286
1287    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1288      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1289      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1290
1291    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1292      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1293      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1294      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1295      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1296      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1297
1298    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1299      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1300      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1301
1302    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1303      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1304
1305    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1306      ones considered harmful (blb)
1307
1308    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1309      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1310
1311    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1312      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1313
1314    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1315        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1316          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1317        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1318          reports (pguyot)
1319        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1320
1321    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1322      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1323
1324    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1325
1326    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1327      echo (the expanded arguments),
1328      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1329      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1330      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1331      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1332      (jberry)
1333
1334    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1335      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1336      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1337      in a similar fashion (jberry)
